Waterdrop Notch Design
Many of the Oppo fans may ask, why choose Oppo A1K over Oppo A3s at a lower price? One reason is the trendy Waterdrop notch design of Oppo A1K. For those who find the classic notch of Oppo A3s is a bit too big, Oppo A1K is the choice. Although, Oppo A3s is ahead considering overall features and pricing. The matte finish on the back side of the black color and glossy finish on the red color makes this device attractive regarding outlook.
Big HD+ Display with Gorilla Glass Protection
One may easily get a phone with HD+ screen with similar big size around this price range. But Gorilla Glass 3 protection makes Oppo A1K an upper-level device in terms of screen. The sharpness and color reproduction is overall pretty good.
The 8 MP primary and 5 MP front camera may sound inferior when it comes to pixel. But those who have some knowledge and experience with premium phones know that the amount of pixels is just one fact among many facts of a good quality camera. Yes, both cameras are nothing over the top. But they can capture adequate shots in daylight, indoor and low-light conditions.
Good battery backup is a must now a days for any smartphone. Most phone models around this price come with a big battery. Oppo A1K made no exception by including a 4000 mAh battery which should support about one and a half to two days with one single charge to average users. 10W fast charging should fully charge the battery in around two hours.
Android Pie with Octa-Core Processor
The gadget comes with Android Pie v9.0 out of the box which is more up to date than the previous Android Oreo concerning security, features and apps compatibility. Octa-core CPU, 2 GB RAM and Helio P22 chipset of MediaTek should ensure smooth performance for everyday usage and multitasking.
Internal storage or ROM is another reason to choose Oppo A1K over A3s. A1K is coming with a 32 GB ROM whereas A3s is offering 16 GB ROM. Although both phones are coming with dedicated MicroSD slot which will allow the users to expand the memory up to 256 GB.
Face Unlock & Notification Light
Not many phones are offering a fingerprint sensor around this price range in 2019. The case of Oppo A1K is the same. But on the other hand, there is face unlock option which is a good alternative. Also, among the best things is that there is a notification LED light which is very important for many users.
