Here is the review of the Oppo A9 20920 priced at £219 available from EE, Carphone Warehouse and Oppo.
Just like other OPPO devices, A9 2020 also uses polycarbonate plastic material for the back. By finishing glass, OPPO makes the back has two colour gradations. The unit that we got had was called Space Purple. The build itself feels sturdy when I hold it and doesn’t feel slippery.
The specifications of OPPO A9 2020 are as follows
4 × 2.0 GHz Kryo 260 Gold + 4 × 1.8 GHz Kryo 260 Silver
128 GB UFS2.1
6.5 inches 1600 × 720 IPS
163.6 x 75.6 x 9.1 mm

The front screen of the OPPO A9 2020 uses a Waterdrop bangs model. By using an IPS screen, of course, this smartphone does not have an in-display fingerprint and places the scanner on the back of the A9 2020. As usual, the screen is protected with a scratch-resistant coating directly from the manufacturer.
OPPO A9 2020 uses a resolution of 1600 x 720, which may be quite low for its price range.
In addition to the fingerprint sensor as mentioned earlier, the back of the OPPO A9 2020 four cameras. The four are 119-degree wide-angle cameras, main camera, mono camera, and portrait. And just like the previous smartphone design, the camera part is quite prominent so that it can be scratched when placed on the table. Just use the rubber back case that is given away for free.
On the left side, found a SIM slot that contains two nano-SIM and microSD and volume buttons up and down. On the right side only found the power button. At the bottom, there is a 3.5mm audio slot, microphone, USB-C, and speakers.
A note for the power button, this button also has a function as the Google Assistant button. To turn off the device, press the button for 3 seconds.
OPPO always boasts pictures of its camera catches. At this OPPO A9 2020, the sensor used on the main camera is the Samsung ISOCELL GM1 with a resolution of 48 MP.
Whereas on the 119 ultrawide camera, OPPO entrusted it to Omnivision. On the selfie camera, the sensor used is the Samsung ISOCELL S5K3P8.
The main camera used is good enough to take pictures in insufficient light. In the night conditions, OPPO also has a night mode that can be relied upon to capture the moment.
OPPO A9 2020 uses a mainstream chipset that is currently quite widely used by smartphone manufacturers, namely Snapdragon 665. Snapdragon 665 itself uses two core Cortex A73-based Snapdragon Kryo 260 which is fast in running the Android operating system.
By using the SoC, the performance of playing games is definitely not in doubt. The games we tried on this device were PUBG Mobile and CoD Mobile. However, with a widescreen, the user must re-arrange the location of the virtual button for those who have large fingers.
For CoD Mobile itself, I can play very comfortably with Very High Graphics and Very High Frame Rate settings.
With the Oppo A9 20200 which has a 5000 mAh battery can last up to 32.2 more hours. This certainly makes OPPO A9 2020 also suitable for those who want to have a smartphone that can last more than one day. Of course, when used to play games, this smartphone might not last a day.
A smartphone was launched again by OPPO, which really wants to dominate the Indonesian market with its devices. This time, OPPO is raising the A series by embedding various features and high performance, the same as the previous F series. The first degree to be appointed by OPPO is A9 2020.
By using Snapdragon 665 SoC, making the performance of this smartphone to be reckoned with. Moreover, by using HD resolution, makes the performance better in terms of graphics compared to Full HD resolution. Existing games can be played very well without lag, even at the highest settings. The phone is a beast for the price and the battery size of 5000mah.
