Oppo F1 Review: Price Specs Pros and Cons

Oppo is quite popular in India for providing great specs under the budget. There are lots of Smartphone in mid range from international and domestic companies offering ample features. Oppo F1 is also loaded with 5.0 inches display, Snapdragon 616 octa-core 1.7 GHz processor, 13 and 8 MP camera, 16 GB ROM, 128 GB External SD card support, 3 GB RAM and 2500 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros & Cons of Oppo F1.

Design and Looks The look of device can easily impresses the people willing to own a classy phone, the metal frame looks and feels premium in the way they crafted with having only 7.3mm width and 134 grams of weight. Functional keys are located as Volume rockers on left SIM tray and power button in right edge, top houses 3.5mm headphone jack and bottom has USB slot.
Display Quality The display is quite vibrant in indoor conditions but in sunlight it looks dim even in highest brightness. 5 inches screen has 720p resolutions which doesn’t seem good for a mid range phone; at least it should have 1080p. We are again not pleased with 294 ppi of display density. Although they have made good deal to protect display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

Camera and Selfie
Oppo F1 is advertised as camera focused phone and handset made it true to some extent but not up to our expectation. The company made front camera much better than the primary camera; by this fact it is clear you will have some better selfies. The phone also struggling in taking details of low light photos which looks like dull and blurred, you will get some not best but pretty good shots from the camera.

Performance of the Phone
The thing that is not an issue with this phone is its performance and the whole credit goes to Snapdragon 616, which is efficient in functioning and gaming as well. There is no heating issue in general but during video recording and video playing handset may heat a little.

Battery Backup
The battery is not on positive side of phone, the company doesn’t included Quick charge support, so phone takes nearly 3 hours to charge and the rate of battery draining is also quite fast in phone.
