Display

The Oppo A72 5G runs ColorOS 7.2 and features a 6.5-inch full-HD+LCDs display which is a big display but not too big, so it is also comfortable in your hand. It has a resolution of 1,080×2,400 pixels and it has a refresh rate of 90Hz which makes the phone smoother and playing games is more fun with a higher refresh as it gives a better gaming experience. The OPPO A72 also had a 6.5-inch display but it had the refresh rate of 60Hz.

Camera

On the back , the new  Oppo A72 has a triple camera setup with 16-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel black and white camera. They are arranged in a square module that also houses the flash. The camera is pretty good, but it is a downgrade from the 4G variant as it had a 5 camera setup at the back which clicked great pictures. On the front, it has a 16 MP punch hole camera setup for selfies.

Performance

The phone is powered by a MediaTek processor instead of the Snapdragon 665  which was found in the A72 4G variant. The 5G A72 operates on the Android 10 operating system and is powered by a Dimensity 720 SoC processor which is a better than the Snapdragon 665 and it is also way faster but hits the battery life a little.

Battery
