Should You Buy Oppo A31?

At its starting price of INR 11,490, the Oppo A31 competes with the likes of Redmi Note 8 and the Realme 5. Both of those smartphones beat the Oppo A31 in almost every criterion. The Redmi Note 8, as well as the Realme 5, have better displays, better cameras, more powerful processors, larger batteries, and faster charging speeds than that of the Oppo A31. Therefore, it doesn’t make sense buying the Oppo A31, at least with its current price tag.
