The memory configuration choices are 4 GB for RAM and 64/128 GB for ROM, with a dedicated micro SDXC card slot capable of expanding the memory by an extra 1T.
This performance is solidly in the mid-range performance, powerful enough to take on intensive tasks such as games with ease. The experience is fast and snappy, with almost no lag expected.
The Oppo A31 has a camera configuration almost similar to the Oppo A5 that came before it. Its primary sensor is a 12 mp wide lens, supported by a 2 mp macro shooter and a 2 mp depth sensor. The photos should be good, with more sharpness in detail and better light control. This is because it is powered by a powerful chipset. It shoots full HD video at 30fps, with support for HDR and Panorama. The front-facing single shooter is an 8 mp sensor. Albeit average, it is still very formidable, making cool, clear, and well-balanced shots, with full HD video coming in at 30fps.
The Oppo A31 comes with the mid-range standard non-removable Li-Po 4230 mAh battery. This one is capable of lasting the whole day even for the high power user, with some juice to spare. Unfortunately, we don’t have any Type C fast charging so we have to contend with the micro-USB standard 10W charging. Which means a little extra time filling up with power.

Straight out of the box, the Oppo A31 comes with Android 9 Pie with Oppo’s custom ColorOS 6.1 UI slapped on top. It is slated for Android 10.0 updated so that shouldn’t be a problem. The ColorOS UI is different and improved, faster, and lighter, with a more modern feel to it. The ColorOS ecosystem is also a joy to use, packing in some useful apps that heighten an improved experience. This without necessarily overwhelming it with unnecessary bloatware. It is truly worth checking out.
Overall, the Oppo A31 is a great mid-range at a great price. It serves the needs of pretty much any kind of mid-range user without any significant sacrifices. It has a great screen, a fairly decent camera outlay, and an average battery. The ColorOS is also well designed and intuitive, with a few bells and whistles. Overall, it should be one of the cheaper mid-ranges in the market.
