ColorOS 6 offers many customization options including tweaking the theme, whether or not you want an app drawer and how many rows of icons should it have. There are several other features as well such as the Smart Assistant, Game Space Optimiser, Oppo’s LockScreen Magazine, App Cloner. But, with all this, you do get to see a lot of bloatware.
The quad rear camera setup on the Oppo A9 2020 is amazing with its primary 48MP sensor which has a PDAF, assisted by an 8MP 119-degree ultra-wide sensor. The other two cameras are a 2MP sensor and a dedicated 2MP depth sensor. On the other hand, there is a 16MP sensor tucked in a waterdrop-shaped notch on the front.

Oppo did work on A9 2020 a lot and has improved a lot of things, but with a price tag at just Rs 15,990/-, you can expect a series of compromises.
