About OPPO F1 (Rose Gold, 16 GB)(3 GB RAM) Rose Gold

Camera is one of the most important considerations when it comes to buying a smartphone. Chinese smartphone giant Oppo has been powering on this thought with its new F Series where it banks on the camera to garner sales. The F1 is its latest launch in the Indian market that promises to be one of the best camera phones. Here we review it and see if there is more to the phone than its camera.



There is a lot that has gone into designing this phone and you would immediately get a sense of it. The phone has a plastic body seamlessly blended to a metal chassis with the finish looking premium. It isn’t hard to miss that certain style elements have been borrowed from the R7. The buttons have been ergonomically positioned on either sides of the body making it extremely comfortable to handle. The phone runs on Color OS 2.1 a tailored version of Android 5.1 Lollipop. This is one of the most impressive looking versions of Android and comes with a host of customization options.


This brings us to the strongest features of this phone. The F1 has a 13 MP f/2.2 primary camera that comes with LED Flash and Phase Detection Autofocus. The camera performs brilliantly in daylight and captures dazzling landscape and macros. Low light and night photography is much more detailed compared to others in similar price range. The 8MP front camera with its wider aperture has been rightly tagged as ‘Selfie Expert’ and would bowl you over with the image quality. As for storage, you get 16 GB internal space and a hybrid microSD card slot that supports up to 256 GB cards which is a letdown for people who would like to use two SIM cards on the phone.   


The phone offers great experience in terms of performance and comes with an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor, one of the first phones to have it on-board. When combined with 3GB of RAM it is a workhorse in your hand. Apps are highly responsive during multi-tasking and gaming experience is equally brilliant on the phone. Shifting to connectivity this is a 4G LTE phone and also supports VoLTE. Along with this, the F1 supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP and A-GPS.  



The Oppo F1 has a 5.0 inch IPS LCD Capacitive Touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixel resolution and 294 ppi pixel density. As for the glass protection, the phone has Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The display is average when you compare to phones that are in similar price range and also the awesome camera on-board but it offers decent viewing angles. It has a 2500 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery which may act against it given that bigger batteries are becoming almost a norm in the country. But with full charge it should easily last a day.


Mind-blowing Camera, Great Performance but Average Battery

Oppo F1 scores full marks when it comes to its camera and performance but loses out points due to its average battery. The makers could have worked on the display to complement its camera. Nonetheless it’s a decent package for a customer to own.


Why Should You Buy?

Splendid Camera:
It you are a shutterbug or one addicted to selfies this is the phone for you and would let your capture your precious moments forever. The camera app perfectly complements the sensors and offers brilliant images.


Solid Performance: F1 comes with one of the latest processors and combined with 3GB of RAM doles out solid performance. It’s a good gaming station and allows you to play the heaviest of games seamlessly.
