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.

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.

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.
