The Design

Oppo F1s look from a far looks like an iPhone. With the gold metal back cover and white front cover it does really resembles iPhone. It has round edges like other mobile phones do. What amazes me is that it is pre-installed with screen guards to protect the screen from scratches. The finger print sensor is in front with an oval shape and the capacitive keys have back light which is nice. The speaker and the audio jock is placed under the finger print sensor. On the left side of the unit you’ll see the volume rocker and on the right side is the Sim Card slot (nano) and the power button. The sides looks like a plastic coated as metal which I am not a fan of.

The Display, UI and Apps

Oppo F1s’ display is 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 IPS. I can see fairly what I am reading on the phone while with the sunshine. They also have blue light filter mode to protect ours eyes from harmful rays.

The user interface (UI) and the theme is like an iPhone, plus the icons on the phone also resembles the iPhone. When you swipe it from left to right you can see that it’s not very fluid and they only scored 2 out 5 in the multi-touch test of Antutu.

No pre-installed apps like Facebook or other social media sites; just all goole apps, like the maps, gmail, hangouts and many more.


The Battery

OPPO F1s have a non-removable 3075 mAh battery. We have tested the battery using Antutu Battery Testing and it scored: 10,751. We started the test around 10:55 PM with 43% and ended it around  12:32 AM with 15% battery. The charging time takes around an hour to and hour and half.

The Benchmarking

We used Antutu benchmarking version 6.2.1 to check OPPO F1s benchmark and it scored: 41,438 and ranked 30th on the overall benchmarking of mobile phones. The CPU scored 14,381 and ranked as middle end and can satisfy your whole day of usage. For gaming and 3D it scored: 4,724 and ranked mid-level for gaming. But the multi-touch test scores very low at 2 out of 5, we used 5 fingers, but scored 2 only.

The Camera and Sample Photos

OPPO F1s front camera is 16MP, f/2.0, 1/3.1″ sensor size, 1080p and the back camera is 13 MP, f/2.2, phase detection autofocus, LED flash. I am not a selfie person that’s why I didn’t enjoy the front camera, but I love taking photos specially scenic one. Though I am having a hard tim to use the camera’s manual mode. The camera has pre-installed filters and also other special modes like Ultra HD, Double Exposure and the Expert Mode (Manual Mode). It also have Time Lapse, Video, Beauty and Panorama.

The Oppo Experience

My eldest has a very wonderful experience with OPPO F1s that she takes a lot of selfies without using any lighting to enhance the photo. Though, I have some struggles using the back camera specially when I switch to manual mode. My youngest loves that it looks and feels like an iPhone, plus the game and video quality is superb. Though the battery is 3075 mAh, when used with games, watching video over a wifi drains the battery rapidly. I do recommend this photo to selfie lovers because it really gives a nice lighting and you can also adjust the photo quality you wanted.
