Design

Redmi 9A, Oppo A12, and Samsung Galaxy M01s are made of cheap materials: they are entirely made of polycarbonate (except the display, naturally), and they are not so sturdy. The Redmi 9A has a cleaner look with its smaller camera module and fewer elements on the rear side, but unlike Oppo A12 and Samsung Galaxy M01s, it lacks a fingerprint scanner and it relies on 2D face unlock. Also, note that Oppo A12 and Samsung Galaxy M01s are much more compact than Redmi 9A due to their smaller displays. The Oppo A12 is even more compact than Galaxy M01s thanks to narrower bezels around the display.

 

Display

The display providing the highest quality belongs to the Oppo A12 which boasts an IPS panel with high brightness. But despite that, it is still a below-average panel since it comes with an HD+ resolution and not a so high level of detail. You get even less detail with the Redmi 9A because it has a lower pixel density due to its wider panel. But it is actually better for productivity users and gamers due to its wider diagonal. The Samsung Galaxy M01s has a cheaper TFT panel which does not even come with the IPS technology, so it loses the comparison.

 

Specs & Software

You get just 2 GB of RAM with the Redmi 9A, but it has a way better chipset than Oppo A12 and Samsung Galaxy M01s. It is the new Helio G25 which is even pretty nice in advanced scenarios such as gaming, thanks to its high GPU performance. But the low amount of RAM will not let you open a lot of apps at the same time. Oppo A12 has an inferior chipset, but it offers up to 4 GB of RAM and even doubles the internal storage (up to 64 GB). Samsung Galaxy M01s loses again since it comes with the weakest chipset (Helio P22) and 3 GB of RAM paired with 32 GB of native storage.

 

 

Camera

Samsung Galaxy M01s is the best camera phone of this trio. It has a main sensor with a brighter focal aperture for the main camera, so it clicks better photos, especially in low light conditions. Further, it has a better 8 MP selfie camera. The silver medal goes to the Oppo A12 sporting a dual camera with a 13 MP main sensor and a depth sensor. The Redmi 9A lacks the depth sensor and it has just a single 13 MP sensor on the rear side. It is not recommended if you need the greatest photos, especially for portraits.

 

Battery

The Redmi 9A has a much bigger battery than Oppo A12 and Samsung Galaxy M01s, it lasts a lot more on a single charge. You can reach three days of battery life even with intensive usage. But this does not mean that its rivals are weak: Oppo A12 still provides an amazing battery life, and even the Galaxy M01s lasts a lot. In each case, you do not get fast charging.

 

Price

If only the Redmi 9A had more RAM, we would choose it as the winner of this comparison. But it is not so, that is why I personally prefer the Oppo A12, at least in its most expensive configuration. The Samsung Galaxy M01s is the best camera phone, but it is inferior when it comes to the rest of the specifications. The base variants of Samsung Galaxy M01s, Redmi 9A, and Oppo A12 cost Rs. 9999, Rs. 11,790 (expected, it is still not on the shelves), and Rs. 9,999, respectively. After reading this comparison, what would your choice be?
