OPPO F1s Review

OPPO F1s Review

Just as a book is easy to judge by its cover, it's only too easy to judge smartphones by their design and their price. A device that looks like an iPhone with an almost dirt-cheap price tag? Gotta be a cheap knock-off coming from China. That is the stereotype that Chinese OEMs like OPPO face, especially when their smartphones, like the OPPO F1s, do really look like an Apple or even a Samsung flagship. But just like in real life, some things deserve a second, sometimes even third, look. Which is why we gave the OPPO F1s, the new, self-proclaimed "Selfie Expert", a thorough inspection, and we're glad we did. Read on to find out why.

OPPO F1s is here, the new Selfie Expert

OPPO F1s is here, the new Selfie Expert

OPPO is obviously not backing down from its promise to make its new "F" line its photography oriented series. And by photography, so far it has meant selfies. And so it has, as expected, put out the OPPO F1s, which it now bills as the Selfie Expert. Which is a weird claim considering the OPPO F1 Plus announced not too long ago is perhaps a better expert than it. Albeit its expertise does come at a price, literally.

OPPO F1s leak reveals the F1 Plus’ little brother

Just because OPPO itself isn't spilling the beans on the OPPO F1s doesn't mean others won't be doing the talking for them. The Chinese OEM may be keeping fans at the edge of their seats, but now those might have little left to wait for. Sources have revealed that while the OPPO F1s is indeed a step up from the OPPO F1 launched early this year, it is, in truth less of a flagship device and is actually a step down compared to the OPPO F1 Plus, also from early 2016.

OPPO F1s tipped to flaunt 16MP front camera for selfies

Oh the extents people, and companies, will go to in order to get that "perfect" selfie. Some smartphone manufacturers even promote their stuff as the ultimate selfie smartphone.

OPPO F1s teased coming soon for a better selfie

OPPO has just teased an upcoming smartphone and, just like most teasers go, it really doesn't say anything much other than confirm its existence. So the OPPO F1s is a thing and it's coming soon. And as far as OPPO is concerned, it will offer a better play at being a "Selfie Expert".

Oppo folding smartphone prototype is a modernized flip phone

Oppo folding smartphone prototype is a modernized flip phone

Back in the '90s before the smartphone craze kicked off and the design that everyone wanted for their mobile phone was the iPhone-style candy bar device, everyone wanted a flip phone. Flip phones were long enough to resemble the normal phones that people were used to in their homes, but compact enough when folded to fit easily into a pocket or a purse. Oppo has a new prototype smartphone that has turned up with a folding design that reminds a bit of those old flip phones.

OPPO F1 Review

OPPO F1 Review

Let's face it, selfies have become an inescapable fact of the digital, mobile lifestyle today. No matter how we snicker or glare at those usually obnoxious selfie sticks (and their sometimes inconsiderate holders), selfies are not going away any time soon. Seeing the potential market, not to mention profits, even digital camera makers have started to pander to this crowd. Of course, smartphones were there first, with almost each new generation advertising selfie-friendly features. Calling itself the "Selfie Expert", the OPPO F1 is, perhaps, the most ambitious. But how does it actually fare beyond the advertising materials? We take a dive into the smartphone selfie world to find out.

OPPO R9, R9 Plus debut with 16MP front cameras

OPPO R9, R9 Plus debut with 16MP front cameras

OPPO has finally unveiled its latest twin flagships and, to some extent, it might be too easy to pass them off as your typical budget, mid-range iPhone knock off. Indeed, OPPO's chosen design isn't doing it any favors. But despite actually being mid-range devices, with not so budget-friendly prices and an iPhone-esque facade, the OPPO R9 and R9 Plus do try to offer some level of uniqueness and flair. That's mostly seen in the 16 megapixel front-facing cameras that are unabashedly aimed at the selfie-loving crowd.

OPPO SmartSensor: first sensor-based, smallest smartphone OIS

Chinese OEM OPPO might not have a new smartphone to show off at MWC 2016 but it is definitely not lacking in things to boast about.
