OPPO brand is known to be good at taking selfies, and now it launched OPPO A37 in March 2014. It’s delivering a wide range of products over the years and made its mark by the name of “selfie expert.”

About OPPO a37

OPPO A37 comes in gold, grey color crafted all over its back, and its screen has a 2d corning edge finish. Its appearance is smoothly curvy at the bottom end from all the angles for a fantastic hand feel as it is a 5.0-inch handset with the Resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. It is chipped with 2 GB RAM backed with Processor – MSM 8916 Quad-core 1.2GHz, which will cover sufficient speed while playing games and running multiple apps together without any lagging except the fact that its battery (2630 mah) gets heated up performing multitasking. OPPO A37 is flocked with 8 MP back and 5 MP front camera, which might not capture as professional image as OPPO R1S, but it’s able to fill more light in the night. It has an old Operating system called ColorOS 3.0 based on Android 5.1, which it has used in its previous models.


OPPO has a built-in beauty camera that can allow us to take brighter selfies even in low light phase as it lets more light to enter the camera for taking natural-looking blazing photos. OPPO has also plugged in beautify 4.0 features, which comes with many features to tone your skin at different temperatures for an eye-catching experience. One of its feature called Screen flash adjusts the brightness of the screen entirely to your face.

           Pros Cons

– Excellent sound quality – unimpressive power management

– A decent camera – Slow Touch screen sensitivity

– Sturdy and Lightweight – Apps can’t move to SD card

– Auto brightness improved – Unstandard earphones

– Sensors working well – Can’t delete multiple messages



It has an 8 MB back camera, which is capable of capturing a 720p image and 1024p from close. The image becomes blur while zooming in overall; it has a good camera at an affordable price. When it comes to its 5 Mp front camera, then you get a clean image with the help of a flash, and also it has some built-in plugins to customize your photos without bursting your head.


Regarding its internal capacity to do the task properly without a halt, we have found some valuable information to gloss. It has two GB ram, which is strong enough to load any app without taking too much time, so hanging off the phone will not be the issue here. It cannot stop by telling. It has a fantastic sound quality, but the phone is not like as expected it gets heated up after 20 – 30 minutes during a call.

Some users complained about its functionality about the Apps, as they cannot move to the SD card. Meaning, users have only limited space to install their apps, making it more frustrating for the apps lovers. Another dilemma is that we cannot delete multiple messages; it means we’ll have to access each word to scratch out permanently.


It has a 2630 mAh Non-removable battery. We have found it passable, so don’t expect too much from it. Hardly it can last for a day. It’s the battery like you get what you pay.


This phone has decent features, camera, battery, and comes with a pretty stylish design that resembles the iPhone a lot. You cannot expect too from this set as it is not an expensive mobile with all the feature that the tech world should have, but it has many decent features which should full fill your needs.
