As is well known, OPPO has never designed a smartphone specifically for the gamer segment. As per OPPO’s slogan, ‘Gaming for Everyone’. That’s why in every product, including the OPPO A95 , they always mix the performance sector by optimizing hardware and software to be able to provide good performance when playing games.
OPPO A95 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset accompanied by 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The combination is honestly still ideal to support everyday gaming needs. But if you want to get a maximum gaming experience with OPPO A95, please try the following tips:
1. Start the game from the Game Space app
Based on ColorOS 11, the OPPO A95 has a built-in application called Game Space. For those who don’t know, this is an application that allows you to access a variety of installed games, including useful settings/modes for optimal performance.
When you need more powerful performance, you can activate Pro Gamer Mode which will instantly improve CPU and GPU performance. Conversely, when you want to play more relaxed and don’t want to waste battery, activate Balanced mode or Low Power Mode. Game Space also has an Automatically Adjust Resolution feature which as the name implies will adjust the image resolution so that it is more power efficient.
2. Block notifications and incoming calls
Have you ever been ranked in Mobile Legends, did you receive an incoming call or your view was disturbed because of the many notifications that appeared on the screen? If you don’t want it to happen again, just activate the Block Notifications and Reject Calls features. You can find both in Game Space.
3. Activate Quick Startup
OPPO fans must be familiar with Quick Startup. This feature that you can find in Game Space will intelligently identify your favorite games that are played the most, and keep them active in the background. So when you want to return to the game, OPPO A95 will automatically create a shortcut to go directly to the game home page in one click.
4. Enable RAM Expansion
Basically, the OPPO A95’s 8GB of RAM is sufficient to support various needs. But if you want more relief, you can activate RAM Expansion. To access it: go to Settings -> About Phone -> select RAM -> enable RAM Expansion with the option up to 5 GB.
Enlarging RAM does not directly affect gaming performance. But at least, those of you who like to multitask and create many applications at once don’t need to close other applications if you want to play games.
5. Always use the default/original charger
OPPO A95 comes with 33W fast charging capability which allows it to charge up to 30 percent in just 15 minutes. The benefits that you must maximize when you have to rush to charge up to continue the battle with friends. So no need to wait too long. The condition is, always use the default charger and cable from the OPPO A95 to get optimal charging capabilities. Using another charger has the potential to make the charging process slower.
Those are some tips to maximize the gaming experience using OPPO A95. As far as our testing goes, this phone is pretty fun to run games like Mobile Legends, PUBG Mobile, Pokemon Unite, and so on. For those who are interested, the OPPO A95 is sold at a price of USD $279.19.
