The Oppo A9 2020 is not the most impressive phone around on paper. It has a 720p screen and costs more than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, which has a 1080p display. Only two of its four rear cameras are useful too, but two solid cameras at £220 isn’t bad. However, the screen is surprisingly decent-lookin...

The strong points of Oppo A9 2020 include its battery backup and speakers. The camera is decent and the performance is also good for the price point. The Oppo A9 2020 could have used a display with full HD resolution and minimised the chin to decrease its height. All things considered, the Oppo A9 2...

Even though the OPPO A9 2020 boasts some of the best specs out there, the actual performance does not match and its price is just too much as you can get better devices in the same price range. Thus, if it were up to me, I would probably go for a Redmi K20 or Galaxy M30s instead of the A9 2020.

Only two of its four rear cameras are useful too, but two solid cameras at £220 isn’t bad. However, the screen is surprisingly decent-looking and there’s a good chance you’ll fall in love with the Oppo A9 2020’s battery life – I did.

The primary camera is good enough and versatile enough for us to still consider this phone good in terms of photo quality. It also has a few other good features to offer, such as its stereo speakers, strong battery life and reverse charging capability, plus decent looks and build quality. The display isn't the best we've seen but it will be good enough for most people. As far as raw power goes, you shouldn't expect to play today's popular high-end games, but day-to-day tasks should go smoothly.

Battling the mid-range crowd with fancy design and Quad Cameras

Even though the OPPO A9 2020 boasts some of the best specs out there, the actual performance does not match and its price is just too much as you can get better devices in the same price range. Thus, if it were up to me, I would probably go for a Redmi K20 or Galaxy M30s instead of the A9 2020.
