The Oppo A16s is an impressive smartphone that offers excellent value for money. For this price, you’re getting a smartphone with decent specs, a great battery life, and a stylish design. The phone gets power from the MediaTek MT6765G Helio G35 chipset as the hardware. It is advisable to avoid this device as it offers a mediocre combination of mid-tier hardware and basic triple rear cameras, coupled with an HD+ display.
