Had my first experience of xiaomi when I got one for my girlfriend, and I was blown away by the build quality and updates, had a Huawei at the time and It was only a 18 months old but was a year out of date with security updates but the xiaomi was upto date and still is!
Note 7 can be had for a mere £30 more https://www.ebuyer.com/882976-xiaomi-redmi-note-7-64gb-smartphone-black-mzb7556en Spend a little bit more and get a Better screen, SOC, USB-C, camera, longer updates 720p vs 1080p Snap 450 vs 660 Superior Sensor on the camera Micro USB vs USB C Oppo has quite a poor update record on their midrangers so their low end is probably worse Or spend less and get a redmi 7 which still beats this AX7 in camera, SOC and updates. Cheapest price for this phone but its still bad value imo as xiaomi and honor with their 10 lite destory this phone so cold for me personally
So is xiaomi.
Although not for me, Oppo are huge in Asia.
It is blown away by too much in this price range. Target price is towards 100. Whilst Oppo sells at a more premium price it is relatively unknown in the UK
