About this deal

You don’t get an app tray (by default) or Google Feed to the left of the homescreen, but that at least serves to drive home the simplicity of the offering. This is clearly a phone aimed at smartphone beginners, and they’re unlikely to get too lost here. For those who are pressed for storage, there is an extension slot that will take a SD-card up to 256GB. Plus two SIM slots. Just like that phone, the Oppo A16s wouldn’t even run 3DMark’s Wild Life test, while in the Slingshot Extreme test it scored to the Moto G22’s 460.

Crucially, it’s never so bad that there are pronounced stutters. I’m glad that Oppo didn’t try to cram in a higher refresh rate display here, because it would likely have made everything feel worse. As it is, there’s at least a certain consistency to the way the Oppo A16s performs, even if that’s “consistently sluggish”

The device is a slightly heavier, at 190 grammes, than the average OPPO model; the device I use, an OPPO A91, is about 173g. Credit where it’s due, though: this is a genuine two-dayer, even if you’re a bit of a media hound. This is driven home by the fact that an hour of Netflix streaming sapped just 4% of a full charge, while an hour of music streaming didn’t even manage to drop the figure a single percentage point.

Dazzling Mode is only supported on the 4GB+64GB version. Whether it is supported depends on the specific product version and country.ColorOS 11 runs on top of Android 11 here, which isn’t the latest software available. It’s about middle of the road when it comes to Android skins, with a relatively lightweight feel and not too many annoying in-your-face intrusions. In simulated tests of Super Nighttime Standby Mode, from 23:00 to 07:00, the Always-On Display only consumes about 1.21% battery over an 8-hour period.

Bepaalde productspecificaties en -beschrijvingen kunnen veranderen als gevolg van leverancierswijzigingen.

De stand-bytijd van de Super Power Saving Mode simuleert zes applicaties die zijn geselecteerd en draaien in de Super Power Saving Mode. Individuele standby-tijden van applicaties gaan ervan uit dat er geen andere apps zijn geselecteerd en/of draaien in de Super Power Saving Mode. With a resolution of 720 x 1600 (HD+), the Oppo A16s display falls short on sharpness, too. This manifests in everything from homescreen icons to Netflix streams, and especially with web content. There’s a general fuzziness to everything that you do on the Oppo A16s. Alle productfoto's zijn alleen ter referentie. Raadpleeg het eigenlijke product voor de nauwkeurigheid.
