OPPO AX7 is the first cab off the rank to introduce what must be one of the best value, most highly featured smartphone Aussies can buy today. It is a ripper in every respect.

I am amazed at the OPPO AX7 value and features, but then OPPO has always been well ahead in the value and mid-tiers.

For $399 ($319 pre-paid at Optus) from JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks, The Good Guys, Woolworths, Mobileciti, Telechoice and Yes Distribution it would be hard to find better. Although the year is yet young.

OPPO’s A-series has always been at the forefront of innovation within the entry-level smartphone market.

Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia, believes the AX7 continues this trend and provides Aussies with an entry-level device that will delight and excite them.

“The AX7 is OPPO’s next premium-grade smartphone, giving Aussies access to a beautifully designed smartphone and amazing features, without having to break the bank. We believe our customers shouldn’t have to compromise on quality or design when choosing an entry-level smartphone. This is what our A series delivers, and it continues to be extremely popular with Australians. With the new features and capabilities, the AX7 has brought to this price bracket, we expect our latest device to be a major hit locally.”

GadgetGuy’s take; OPPO AX7 proves there is great value sub-$400

It is a great, honest entry level phone with features well about its price. Add OPPO’s superb construction, Canstar customer satisfaction rating, and excellent local support, and it is another winner.
