03 February, 2016
The Oppo F1 is the ambassador for a whole new potential line of handsets within the manufacturer's portfolio and as such, it definitely deserves some attention.

My first oppo was r5 which is overall satisfying. Due to tht I got my second oppo f1 but totally disappointing especially the camera quality! N it leads me to no more oppo in future!

I've just purchased the oppo F1. So far I am really happy with the incredible value for money vs what you get in the box.

It looks sleek, and doesn't feel cheap. Camera quality is pretty on par and better than other models I've had historically of a different brand - but not the best, but not bad to the point I'm frustrated. It's marketed as a perfect selfie and it really is accurate. This phone has the best self facing camera!

Sound quality is pretty good and the volume it produces is louder than a slightly older Samsung model I had. Which is important for alarms and waking up in the morning.

The interface took a little time navigating but I suspect that's like any slightly new platform and it's really just a quick learn to find where things are in settings.

I paid 279 for a phone that included an already covered screen protector and a silicon case, high-speed charger and headphones. Charging is quick, 10 minutes charge bought me 20% battery and that 20% has lasted me two hours of continuous usage/browsing/game playing and writing this review.

Yes the graphics display are not as "sharp"when you compare to a 1000 phone, but for the 700-800 savings on an outright phone thats a sacrifice I'm happy to have made.

Apps open quickly and there are some excellent lock screen functions. Especially the option to draw on the lock screen for camera and flash light for less fumbling etc.

Overall: appearance 10/10
Operation system 8/10
Visual display 7/10
Camera back 7/10
Camera front 9/10
Price 100/10
