Good Phone, Premium Parts
By Prashant Kapadia | 27 Aug 2016
OPPO has hit the mark on one part of this promise, but has fallen short of the other.
Using for past 1 week -
Battery life on is good, but not standout. Moderate usage should comfortably get you a day out of the F1. Sadly, the handset doesnâ€™t feature OPPOâ€™s fast charging technology. That being said, recharging didnâ€™t take an overly long time either.
The F1â€™s camera is okay, at least when taking into account the deviceâ€™s price. It doesnâ€™t exactly live up to OPPOâ€™s promise of â€œhigh-end camera technologyâ€. Photos look fine in terms of colour accuracy, but are missing sharpness and detail. If you just want to Instagram a happy snap, the camera is fine, but as soon as you zoom in youâ€™ll have issues like unreadable text and blurry edges. In the photo of my guitar below, the high E-string is indistinguishable from the pickup. This is helped by a slow shutter speed, which can easily turn moving objects into a blurry mess. The F1â€™s front-facing camera seems more reliable than its rear. Selfies are better
Games run smooth, Sound is good. Camera is Ok.
Recommended as a good budget phone - likewise it is as Iphone Judwa from design perspective.
Oppo would gain ground here, it is quite better than MI, Gionee, Lenova and other Chinese brands any day.
