The Helio G35 is a 12nm chipset designed by MediaTek for mainstream gaming smartphones. The A16 is not exactly a “gaming” smartphone, but since it is equipped with this chipset, it shows that the device is capable of handling light to moderate gaming.

Remember back in the day when budget smartphones only had a single camera? Well, the OPPO A16 is an exception as it has three cameras: a 13MP main, a 2MP mono for depth sensing, and a 2MP for macro. For the front camera, it has an 8MP shooter.

This shows that the A16 can be used as a daily camera for uploading images on social media. You can take photos normally, use portrait mode for some bokeh, or get up close on tiny subjects with the macro camera so you can show a different world not easily noticeable in our daily lives.

If you want to vlog, the cameras can shoot up to 1080p at 30 fps. The front camera can even record 720p at 30 fps with beautification turned on.

Large 5,000mAh battery

One of the things that budget smartphones should have is a large battery. This is because these kinds of smartphones should work like daily drivers that can last a long time. Given the power-efficient chipset and HD+ screen, it can provide you with over 21 hours of YouTube streaming.

Or you can do what I do and use the A16 as a hotspot for my other devices like tablets and laptops. That way, I can take advantage of the A16’s large battery and keep my devices connected all the time via WiFi.
