Our Initial Impression on OPPO A52
Compared to its rivals available in the market, the OPPO A52 does have a pretty strange set of specs. It has a year-old chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
To be frank, the OPPO A52 seems a little overpriced given the specs and features. Also, its competition is providing way better specs. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro, realme 6, and Samsung Galaxy M31 which currently dominate this mid-range segment are the best option if you are looking for reliable performance and stellar design.
The OPPO A52 comes with some interesting specs but to be honest it may be difficult to survive in the tech market. It loses out to its contemporaries who are priced similarly as it lacks a bit in the hardware aspect.
