Glowing Feather Design

Spontaneous design
The OPPO A79 5G is designed to impress with a back cover that seeks inspiration from mechanical watches— it sports a luxurious dial design and a reflective texture within an oval panel decorative area. The uniqueness of this design is in how it creates a sense of depth and offers myriad views when you look at it from different angles. We found holding the smartphone in hand totally intuitive— at a weight of just 193 grams and a thinness of about 7.99 mm, it was simple to use even for extended hours. We found its offbeat design particularly impressive – its rear surface sports a rectangular island which focuses the attention on two polished rings that encircle the lenses of the rear camera. The frame itself is textured to mimic a metallic texture. The new A79 5G is available in two exciting colours — an exquisite Glowing Green that features the exclusive Glowing Feather Design which lends the phone a diamond-like appearance and a classic Mystery Black that has a glossy texture for those who like their look to be premium and low key. You can select the one that appeals to your sensibilities!

Dynamic display

Whether it is a video you are streaming or an email you arereplying to, the content itself feels better on a 6.72-inch FHD+ Sunlight Display with a 91.4 per cent screen-to-body ratio that offers you room to see more as you do more with your smartphone. This FHD+ technology makes the visuals appear sharper and clearer, and a powerful peak brightness of680 nits allows you to enjoy reading or browsing your favourite content, even under the bright midday sun. So, as we shuffled between the indoors and outdoors with the phone in hand, not for a minute did we feel the need to takeour eyes off the screen.It also comes with OPPO’s All-Day AI Eye Comfort for continuous eye protection and a safe viewing experience.This smartphone also features a high 1080x 2400 resolution and support for a 100 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut for impactful visuals that are true-to-life and have more vibrant colours. We even watched some of the latest HD shows on Amazon Prime and Netflix, thanks to itsWidevine L1 certification, and were left spellboundby the impactful visuals that made the overall entertainment experience totally immersive.

This was made even better with the Dual Stereo Speakers with Ultra Volume Mode, which ensuredthat every game we playedcame totally alive on the screen. The Dual Stereo Speakers deliver up to 86 per cent more volume compared to its predecessors which we experienced with the A79 5G. We also tried to play some of our favourite songsat full volume and the clarity of the audio was totally outstanding,achieved through optimised noise reduction and echo-suppression algorithms. This was backed by the upgraded Ultra Volume Mode which maximises the sound output of the speakers by as much as 300 per cent.

Powerful battery

The smartphone has been designed to go on for hourson end as it has a large 5,000 mAh battery that gives 448 hours of standby power, 26 hours of phone calls, or 14 hours of YouTube videos— all on a single charge. We tried some competitive PUBG gaming on the new A79 5G and the phone lasted almost 6 hours without the need for a charge in the middle, which was quite amazing. It also supports the 33W SUPERVOOCTM function for quick charging— we were able to get the battery charged to 11 per cent after the marathon gaming session in just 5 minutes, which was very handy! Afive-minute charge can also give you 2.6 hours of texting and 1.4 hours of video streaming. OPPO’s SUPERVOOCTM allows you to always stay connected as you charge this massive battery to 100 per cent in 74 minutes, and 51 per cent within 30 minutes.

OPPO smartphones are known for their camera prowess,and the highlight of this model for us was the shots clicked in Portrait Mode. This draws on the power of the 50 MP AI Main Camera and the 2 MP Portrait Camera to add a real depth-of-field effect to make sure you always stand out from the crowd! The A79 5G also features AI Portrait Retouchingthat enables us to bring out the best in every shot using the power of AI along with Selfie HDR thatoffers greater clarity in every photo by detecting and adjusting the backlight to near-perfect levels. The results that we got were simply amazing in every photo.
