viSerMark Battery Life test reports

Oppo A5 2020 & Oppo A9 2020 viSerMark Battery Life review – March 2020

Oppo A5 2020* & Oppo A9 2020* have recently landed in our lab and our team has been very excited to go through viSerMark battery life scoring testing protocol on those two products.


A5 & A9 2020 target a very competitive market segment (200 -250 Euros in Europe) and Oppo has very high expectation on them as their technical specification should perfectly match with customer's expectations on this product range.


First of all,  A5 & A9 are powered by a mid range Snapdragon 665 chipset which is offering good performance and overall balanced user experience. This interesting configuration is completed with HD+ screen and a massive 5000 mAh battery to maintain good performance during the longer period of time. As main the difference between A5 & A9 2020 is on the camera side we expect both products to offer similar good battery life.


This is what our battery life measurement protocol has indeed confirmed. Our scenario which is regularly stimulating the devices with a mix of standard usage, has been steadily running during more than 2.5 days.   A total of 4 products have been tested and they all performed our protocol during almost exactly same total duration, which is very impressive and show how much the overall products are very well optimised.


Our real day-life simulation is covering some long standby (idle) time slots to verify how much power is drained over nights. Idle performance achieved by Oppo A5 & Oppo A9 2020 are once more, excellent with an average of 1.5% of battery drained over 8 hours. They will be powered to wake you up in the morning and will be ready for a new intensive day.


If you are a heavy user, whatever the main usage of your Smartphone, Oppo A5 & Oppo A9 2020 will deliver very comfortable battery life time. Both products are able to follow you during more than 15 hours of streaming over WiFi or 4G when network signal condition are good. Only intensive gamers will have to charge their device after one day.


Oppo A5 & Oppo A9 2020 have achieved one of the best battery life score of 2019 products that SmartViser has been testing. Of course they have a high capacity battery  but they  are undoubtedly using each mAh with the best care.

The overall results can be seen below:
