We have a sea of mid-range smartphones in the market nowadays and many of them are focused on 5G, which is still unusable nowadays. That is why we are talking about the OPPO A74 4G today because it is a well-balanced phone in most aspects.

The OPPO A74 4G is currently available at RM899 and it aims to be always reliable and always relaxed – in accordance with what its product listing claims.

AMOLED screen

One of the “must have” of smartphones these days is a bright and beautiful screen – and the OPPO A74 4G delivers that with its 6.43-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels.


Since it is using an AMOLED screen, the OPPO A74 4G also comes with an under-display fingerprint scanner. That might tickle your fancy.

Great performance and user experience

When it comes to the performance side of things, the OPPO A74 4G comes equipped with this list of hardware:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset
  • 6GB RAM
  • 128GB storage


Combined with ColorOS 11.1, the overall user experience of the OPPO A74 4G is smooth and performs very well in day-to-day usage. Another interesting addition to ColorOS is RAM disk.

RAM disk is a feature where a certain amount of internal storage is allocated to be treated as “RAM”. Do keep in mind that RAM disk doesn’t work as well as real RAM.


Humongous battery

The OPPO A74 4G also comes with a massive 5,000mAh battery and it lasts for a fantastically long time. You can literally be just a little frugal in terms of usage and you can get 2 days of battery life with just one charge. That’s impressive.

But, if you need a quick battery top-up then fear not – the OPPO A74 4G also comes with the company’s very own 33W Flash Charge charger. It can charge the phone from 15% to 100% in just about an hour’s time.


Sleek & stylish

We got our hands on the Midnight Blue color variant of the OPPO A74 4G. However… it didn’t remotely look anything “midnight” about its shimmery blue to silver color gradient, but we did realize that it looks like Pepsiman.


Yeah, Pepsiman with that blue and silver color. I don’t know why it came across my mind but it did. And the colors are eerily similar too.

All this for just RM899

Yes! That’s the official price of the OPPO A74 4G – at least on OPPO’s official Lazada and Shopee stores, before the discount. OPPO seems to be doing a promotion right now and the price is only at RM849.


For that price, you’re getting a beautiful smartphone that looks like Pepsiman, has a superbly long battery life alongside fast charging, great performance, and a user interface that’s actually not bad.

We haven’t even mentioned the decent cameras too – and I’m sure fathers around the world will appreciate it. Perhaps to take pictures of the house pets or just pictures together with you – it’s bound to be a good time.
