15 Common problems and solutions in Oppo A83

15 Common problems and solutions in Oppo A83


Windows 10 doesn’t recognize the device

This is not the case with this smartphone as it is a universal case. Android has a very bad past history record with Windows and the pairing issues are always hectic. I would suggest you to only follow these steps:

  • Open Settings
  • Go to About Phone
  • Go to Developer Options
  • Toggle it to ON
  • Then, a new option will appear called Developer Options
  • Tap on USB debugging to enable it.
  • You may have to reboot the phone once.
  • Plug in the phone and change USB configuration to MTP.


Performance Issues

Oppo is not very reputed in the market due to the processors they offer with their smartphones. Same goes with this smartphone. Oppo A83 has a mediaTek chipset which is not well reputed in the industry. Also, since it is an entry level chipset, you can't expect much from this device. But you can always tak some precautions:

  • Run your device in Safe Mode once your device is heated up
  • Don't expect too much heavy gaming as there may be overheating issues
  • Always keep your ROM with some storage space otherwise it will slow down
  • Never install too many apps in this smartphone


Oppo has never been so much impressive with the mid-range smartphone unless they launched Oppo A83 with some decent specifications. Oppo is always known for its flagship-smartphones with AI powered cameras and other high-end camera performance. This time we will only be talking of Oppo A83 which has some of the problems. Under this blog, we try to understand those problems and then correcting it by providing suitable options.

Common Oppo A83 problems and fixes

The Oppo A83 is a mid-ranged smartphone with decent specifications. But like every smartphone has their own short comings, this one too, has its own problems and bugs. We are here to find those bugs and tell the simple solutions which wont be provided by anyone else. So, let's start from here


Automatic clearance of notification

Sometimes you receive the notifications but they automatically get cleared without your approval. This is not interesting and fun to be honest. So, if the notifications get hidden on their own, then you can:

  • Go to Settings
  • Click battery options
  • Disable Aggressive Hiberative Dose


Face unlock not working on Oppo A83

Face lock is the most promising feature in this smartphone as told by Oppo officials. But I have known some people who are not really happy with the face lock system. Sadly, I don't have any information regarding the solution for this because this is entirely operated by Oppo, so I would only suggest people to wait till the next OTA update gets rolled on.


Brightness issue in Oppo A83

Almost every smartphone nowadays gives you adaptive brightness options which is not in the case of Oppo A83, so the brightness you get in Oppo A83 is not very impressive. However, there are many third party apps which can improve the brightness upto an extent. You can even try the "Lux Auto Brightness" app from the Google Play Store and use it with your device.


Data connectivity issues (Apps not working)

Also, many people reported that there are some of the apps that are not working in their areas. This might be the problems of the locations and restricted app can't be used anywhere. For eg: the app from Western Union is not yet available in India, so you can't use this app worldwidely. But don't worry as I have a very full proof solution for you:

  • Go to Settings
  • Click on more networks
  • Go to mobile network
  • Select access point names.
  • Tap on APN for your network.
  • Change the APN Protocol to IPv4 or IPv4/IPv6.

Of course, this will eliminate the issues which you are facing


Overheating issues with Oppo A83

MediaTek has not been very impressive as I just told you above, so as a result, there might be some of the overheating issues that you could face probably in future. But you can certainly take steps:

  • Do not use the smartphone while it is put on charge.
  • Dont go for heavy gaming
  • Don't leave your smartphone on charge over night.


To fix Wi-Fi issues

  • Turn off the router for a few minutes,
  • In the WI-FI settings of the device, tap on forget the preferred network. Then add the details from scratch.
  • In the WI-FI Analyzer application, check the level of activity. If required, switch to the different
  • Disable Power Saving Mode in Settings.
  • Ensure that the MAC address for the phone is recognized by the router.

To fix Bluetooth Issues

  • No power saving mode should be enabled.
  • Turn the Bluetooth of your device on and off.
  • If the problem persists, go to Bluetooth Settings and clear the cache.
  • Restart the phone.
  • If there are multiple profiles, then maybe you have exceeded the limit of profiles you can save. Delete old and profiles no longer in use. Then try setting the connection from the beginning.
