OPPO F1 Review

Let's face it, selfies have become an inescapable fact of the digital, mobile lifestyle today.

Seeing the potential market, not to mention profits, even digital camera makers have started to pander to this crowd.

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 moves closer to vanilla Android for sales outside China

Oppo, the Chinese smartphone maker, has long used its own custom version of Android, known as ColorOS, on its devices, but when these phones are made available outside its domestic market, it becomes clear that many of its customizations are meant to appeal to Chinese users.

Or at least that is what OPPO is offering with its latest smartphone, the OPPO R7s. Although it should sit somewhere between the OPPO R7 and its larger OPPO R7 Plus sibling, the OPPO R7s has one trump card that makes it more appetizing: 4 GB of RAM to go along with mid-range specs.
