This device has a front that appears to have slightly curved edges to the screen reminding more than a bit of the Galaxy S7 edge.

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.

HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, Pro press renders show HTC 10 ties

In the past, HTC distinguished its One flagship line from its Desire budget line not just in specs but also in design, with the latter usually sporting a generous amount of plastic.

While still midrange in features, these two smartphones are expected to bear a more premium design and build material resembling that of the HTC 10 itself, a speculation that is seemingly confirmed by these two press renders for the two smartphones.
