Jumia is a reliable online market in Kenya and delivers products to where you are. Therefore, you can always get your smartphone from them anytime you wish to.

Oppo A1 Specifications

Consider the following specifications as you are about the decision of buying the smartphone under review.


The body dimension is 73.1 x150.5x 7.7 mm and it weighs 143g.

It is a dual SIM card smartphone that gives an opportunity to choose the best network to use wherever you will be always. It is hard for the two networks to lack the network at the same time.

You can choose to use Safaricom and Airtel, Airtel and orange or Safaricom and Orange



The display type is S-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colours. This type has a high definition that makes the phone display quality information clear for visibility.

The other good thing with this display is the better colour reproduction. The possible number of colours the IPS LCD display can be able to reproduce is 16 million. That is why you can be able to see features in a clear manner.

There is a time you need a wide viewing angle to be satisfied when viewing the display. That is what the display gives you, a wide viewing angle which is not found in other display panels.

Have you ever bought a phone which when you are standing on broad daylight, you can not read the details on the screen? If yes, then you need to get the difference because the IPS LCD display is always visible on a broad day and you can read as clear as in darkness all the content assigned to read.


The size for Oppo A1 is 5.7 inches though that is smaller than the 6.28 inches, it still serves the purpose so well as the 6.0 inches and above.

It handy for those who love gaming since it gives a wide view for gaining. It also assists when video chatting since the other person gets a clear view of you when chatting unlike when the screen size is so small and minute.


The resolution is 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~282 ppi density). This is not so high definition but still, it is not so low quality.

When compared to the higher resolution the images and graphics of the phone will be low-quality details but they are above average.


It a multitouch. This feature makes the user interaction efficient, effective and fast. In fact, you can touch more than two spots at ones and it becomes fast in executing commands.

It is fast since commands can be executed simultaneously.


The Operating System is Nougat 7.1 Nougat. It is a good Android version which has been in existence for a while and most of the phones have it and run on it.

When Nougat is compared with Marshmallow operating system, the Nougat becomes the best operating system though it is a bit slow and lacks some features which were added in the Android 8.1 Oreo.


The memory is so crucial in a smartphone it is where the phone stores files, documents, data, videos, music and other stuff.

The Oppo A1 RAM is 4GB. Here is where the files to be processed by the phone CPU are stored and are made available. The 4GB is RAM is big enough to hold a lot of stuff that can be available for the processor.

The ROM is 64 GB to give you enough space to store your stuff like movies, videos, documents and many more.

If the 64 GB is not enough there is an expansion slot that accepts a microSD card of up to 128 GB.

There is also Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to protect the phone from any scratches or hen it falls down.

The chipset in this smartphone is Mediatek MT6771 Helio P60 (12 nm). This chipset improves the performance of Oppo R15  when you compare it with the past chipsets

It has artificial intelligence that helps the phone learn and act intuitively. It is the one that aids the phone to detect the face and take real-time enhanced photos.

The chipset helps preserve power since it delivers precisely the amount of power needed. It avoids overheating which results to high amount of energy lost.

The technology combination sustains high performance with great power efficiency.

The Helio P60 saves power when compared to P23.


The is an Octa-core (4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A53). The CPU installed is fast enough since it is clocked at 2.0 GHz and has Quad octa cores.


The Mali-G72 MP3 GPU handles graphics tha you see on the phone. It is the one responsible for the web pages that display on your phone. With the GPU navigation is fast and better processing.

The Oppo R15 has RAM of either 4GB or 6GB depending on what you will wish to take. The 4GB RAM is what we are reviewing and I want to remind you that the RAM is bigger than what most people have in the 2GB RAM smartphones.

The 4GB RAMmakes the amount of data on the queue to be processed high hence enhancing the speed at which the phone performs its duties. Execution speed is high and the results are good.

With such a RAM you can enjoy browsing the net without any single delays as long as the network you are on is strong and reliable.


This memory is where you store your data like documents, files, photos/pictures, music, videos, movies, Apps and downloads.

When you analyze the body you should check the dimension, size, resolution and whether the screen touch is a multitouch

The phone I am reviewing has the dimension of 148 x 71 x 8.4 mm (5.83 x 2.80 x 0.33 in).

The weight is which is so light to carry and enjoy when handling it. You won’t get tired as you may think.

Another important feature is the dual SIM card feature. The make allows you use two smartphones at the same time. In this era when there are so many telecom networks where one tends to be cheaper than the other, it is good for you to consider having a phone which can handle two sim cards at the same time. I know it features you will love and enjoy so much.

Display of  Infinix SMART 2

Under this category go through the manual and check the screen type, size, resolution and the multitouch ability.

The screen type is IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colours. The screen offers the natural colours that you need to see daily without getting bored and tired.

The  IPS LCD screen offers better viewing angles and high-quality colour reproduction.

In terms of images, the screen type produces clear images that are nice to view than those produced in the AMOLED screen

When you will be outside in the sun you will realise that some phones are hard to view the screen making it difficult to use it. That is where the IPS LCD screen comes in handy since it is viewable and you can easily read it without encountering any problem.

When you compare the IPS LCD with the AMOLED you will discover that the IPS LCD lasts longer than the AMOLED. The IPS LCD has long lasting organic constituents.


The screen size 5.5 inches, 78.1 cm2 (~74.3% screen-to-body ratio). The 5.5 inches screen offers a big portion of the body to view the screen features.


The resolution is 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~293 ppi density).

The 18:9 ratio is advantageous to many of us since it allows the opening of two apps simultaneously. In addition, there is an option of copying and pasting with a lot of easiness.

The other advantage of the 18:9 ratio is the high amount of content consumption.

The Screen is a multitouch

The advantages of a multitouch screen include

  • Flexibility
  • Fast when performing tasks since you can do more than two tasks at ones.
  • You can do tasks simultaneously without straining


Under this subtopic, I will discuss two aspects.

  1. )Operating system
  2. )CPU

The operating system that is installed on the phone is Android 8.1 Oreo

Oreo has bee existence for a time now but as time changes the manufactures work out to improve the operating systems in the smartphones. The aim of improving the operating system is to improve phone performance.

Note that the latest operating systems in the market are better than their predecessors. They come with improved features that you cannot easily find in the old fashion models

Android 8.1 comes as a replacement of Android Oreo 8.0. In the Oreo 8.1, there are better features lacking in the 8.0. The 8.1 has an additional/improved cheeseburger emoji. If you are deep into emoji use, you will find it impressive and cool to use such an added/improved feature.

The other advantage of the 8.1over the 8.0 and the previous systems is the use of the battery. In the new operating system, it is easier to monitor battery use.



The CPU is the one in charge of processing data that gets into the phone. For you to get better results you a need a good CPU

The CPU runs all the Application that you use daily. It is a platform where your smartphone software and hardware interact to produce results. For example, you want to send somebody cash, you will have to press the name and phone number of the person you will wish to send cash.

The processors have core arrangements, graphics handling unit, RAMs and processors in one another.

The processor of the smartphone can be equated to the human brain which does a lot of tasks

The GPUs gives the processor the ability to run the commands well.
