To be honest, OPPO A31 doesn’t have compelling hardware. Priced at Rs. 26,590, it misses out on an ultrawide angle camera and houses an old chipset as well. So, OPPO A31 doesn’t seem impressive on paper. The smartphone is quite overpriced compared to its competitors – Xiaomi Redmi Note 9, Vivo Y30, Samsung Galaxy A21s, Realme 6i, etc. Even the OPPO A52 will be the best option as it is priced a bit higher and comes with better specs.
What do you think of OPPO A31? Are its specifications and price good enough for 2020?
