OPPO A72 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing phone I bought this last week and so far it amazing. However when you buy it also by another screen protector because the one they give you picks up a lot of dust and gets really annoying. Other than that amazing phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful phone I've had 3 Oppo A72 phones sent to me now and all 3 of them have an awful reception and are not fit for purpose. I've even put my partner's SIM card in and all of the phones have still been useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat it for the price For the price of this phone you can't beat it...hence the title of this review. Great looking phone, my other half especially wanted it for being Dual sim because of work. Camera is great for what she uses it for, filming at 4k is a bonus so we can play the videos on my TV too.
