Can You Still Use a Cell Phone That’s 5 Years Old?


Many wonder if a phone from five years ago is still usable. Well, I’d say yes, it can be used, but whether it can keep up with your demands is another question. Firstly, due to outdated hardware, you might encounter issues like slow performance, app lagging, and short battery life. Secondly, software updates may no longer support older phones, resulting in the inability to access new features and security updates. Additionally, the camera, screen, and network performance of a phone from five years ago may not meet modern demands. Therefore, your experience is likely to be somewhat compromised.

The Evolution of Durability

Fortunately, manufacturers have been optimizing phones inside and out, making them more durable. Take, for instance, the OPPO A3 Pro, dubbed the “Durable War God”. It runs on the ColorOS 14 system, which has passed 48 months of smooth sailing testing. With a 5000mAh battery and 67W SuperVOOC, even after 1460 cycles, the battery retains over 80% of its capacity.

Enhanced Durability Features

Moreover, the OPPO A3 Pro is the industry’s first phone to pass IP69, IP68, and IP66 dust and water resistance tests, effectively safeguarding against scenarios like high-temperature/high-pressure spraying, prolonged submersion, and strong water jets. Coupled with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2, and OPPO Crystal Shield Glass, durability is taken to the extreme!
