In case you don’t Know, this is a year of budget phones. Yes, you read that right. Many phone manufacturers are now putting more effort into making affordable smartphones than flagship devices. Call it a market strategy or whatever that suits you, while I call it a competition. Oppo is trying so hard to penetrate not only the India market but other African countries as well.

The good news is that the phone still falls under a budget device to buy.
