“I’m in love with the coco OPPO”… I know! I know! … But the OPPO’s new phone will make you sing this too I bet. Well, you must have seen me travelling to Mumbai for the launch of the OOPO F1s and I have also published a pre-launch blog post showing our Bollywood beauties without makeup selfies with the OPPO F1s ( Here ). Today, as the heading says we are doing a full review of the new OPPO F1s Selfie Expert and without any further delay let’s dig in.
BODY & DISPLAY
It comes in two color variants GOLD & GREY, on the outer side the phone’s got beautiful 5.5 inch IPS LCD display with 2.5D gorilla glass 4 which weighs only 160g. The phone follows the design aesthetics from its predecessors OPPO F1 Plus simple, elegant, but powerful. With IPS LCD touchscreen showers 16 million colors on the resolution of 1280×720 with 267 ppi (pixel per inch). Also, it’s a dual SIM phone (both nano SIM), battery back up here will surely last you a day long with 3075 mAh (Non-removable).
SOFTWARE & MEMORY
OPPO’s operating system is known as COLOR and you get all new COLOR 3.0 based on Android 5.1 which falls in hand faster, steadier, better than before. Transitions between apps are seamlessly responsive, beautiful smooth animation throughout the OS. As a blogger, I click tons of photos and with time the photo album app gets heavier, which ultimately increases loading time and this goes for all phones, but the memory management with OPPO F1s selfie phone is so brilliant no matter how heavier your photo album is the phone opens it seamlessly faster, take a bow team OPPO. Talking about memory management the new OPPO F1s selfie expert packs with Octa-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 supports 3gb RAM and 32gb internal storage. Well, that’s not all the phone also provides an external memory slot that supports up to 128GB, I know! I wish if we can get this feature in all flagship phones too “wishful thinking”.
SELFIE EXPERT CAMERA
I don’t know how they do it, but I love it how OPPO pushes the technology with every new phone. Apart from other key features of OPPO F1s packs a powerful 16 megapixel front facing sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. It also comes with best beauty software to date that is version beautify 4.0.
Evening Low light selfie!
Morning day light selfie!
This feature is just awesome you have to try this hands on to believe it how beautifully you can capture selfie photos even on a bad look day. A new feature in the camera category is Filters! (Which we all dearly love). Filter as the camera option name provides a wide range of filters with a new watermarking feature allows users to imprint photos with time, date, temperature and more. Next, is the panorama Selfie feature where you just have to rotate the phone side to side and the F1s automatically stitches the entire photo together capturing your entire group and makings it into a one awesome group Selfie. Let’s talk about rear facing camera which is blazing fast at 13 Megapixel 1/3.06 sensor that supports HDR, which means say a big hello to low light photography. This helps a lot for those who like taking shots at night without flash.

Its large pixels help in bumping up the dynamic range, which results in vivid picture with beautiful depth, it goes without saying that the F1s rear camera can give a serious blow to some flagship cameras be it a day or night time.
0.22s Fingerprint unlock
F1s fingerprint sensor unlocks your phone in a blink of an eye at 0.22 millisecond, that’s not all you can customize your fingers to unlock apps you desire. It will take you from standby screen to app in a same 0.22 millisecond for example, thumb to unlock camera, index finger to unlock your favourite social app, pinky finger for gallery etc. I know this is awesome right? Well, that’s not it, All of this available for only Rs. 17999.
To wrap it all up this phone is for those who want to go beyond budget phones which gives you budget features, but don’t want to go all the way to the flagship one’s. If you ask me flagship or not, this phone is unique in its own kind, you get sweet & simple design, 16mp selfie cam, 3gb RAM which can take any heavy duty app easily, COLOR OS 3.0, beautify v4.0, HDR, 128gb expandable storage phew! All in all a “power in your pocket”.
