This is the Oppo F1 Plus Review.
Basically, the Oppo F1 Plus is like a beautiful baby. It kinds of looks like an iPhone from the outside but also on the inside (like the dialer).
Let’s see the facts about this Oppo F1 Plus review!
The Good Things In The Oppo F1 Plus Review (Pros and Features):
1. The first thing you would notice is the screen. It’s a 5.5 inch Full HD display. It’s a pleasure to watch videos on it even on Youtube. The viewing angles are good enough. On the original system of the phone, you also have a unique option to protect your eyes from the phone’s brightness. If you’re going to use it in the dark while you’re on your bed, you can activate the Eye Protection Display settings and this will filter the blue light which is known to be harmful to the eye. I don’t know if this is pure science or just marketing, but it feels softer on the eye with this option. The screen also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
2. The second good thing I liked about this phone is the 4GB RAM which around 2GB is left after initial boot. Coupled with the Octa-core (4x2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.0 GHz Cortex-A53) processor, it’s able to run 3D based games smoothly and you can multi-task easily. The GPU is Mali-T860MP2.
3. The internal storage is 64GB ROM. Around 50GB is left after initial boot but it’s enough to store games, applications, pictures, videos, and documents. You can even add an SD-Card up to 128GB if you need more space.
4. This one has a fingerprint scanner located on the home button. It’s fast and accurate as you can unlock your phone in 0.2s.
5. The Oppo F1 Plus comes with Quick Charging using the VOOC Technology. In the Oppo website, it says that you can charge it from 0% to 75% in just 30 minutes but I didn’t check. It does charge fast though.
6. The front camera is 16MP for selfies and the back camera is 13MP. The quality is good enough but it’s kind of blurry when it’s dark. HDR is supported on the back camera.
7. The Oppo F1 Plus also has other sensors such: Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, and the Compass.
The Shortcomings Of The Oppo F1 Plus Review (Cons And Downsides):
1. The first bad thing about this phone is that if you use two sim cards, you will not be able to use the SD Card as it shares the slot with the second sim.
2. The battery is not really lasting, it could last for a normal use (with a little bit of 3G connection) but it’s going to drop fast with gaming. But this can be accepted as the phone charges quickly.
3. The original OS it comes with is the Color OS 3.0 which is based on Android Lollipop 5.1 I would have preferred if it was based on Marshmallow, Nougat or even better, Oreo. Updates have to be sent by Oppo and still I didn’t see an official update to Marshmallow yet.
My Verdict: This is still a good phone, I consider a phone suitable for gaming and navigation as it’s fast enough.
