The Oppo F1s is an upgraded selfie smartphone with a better selfie camera. This is a detailed review of the performance, features, specifications, and price. We discussed the camera performance also.
In terms of design, the Oppo F1 borrows many features from its bigger brother F1 plus. It looks well, built great and comfortable to carry around with its slim profile. The phone has good ergonomic and also makes it easy to use in one hand. Although the single handed mode is a bit finicky. The phone is powered by an octa -core processor. It is nice to see a dedicated micro SD card slot which means you need not sacrifice the sim slot for more storage.
The device bears a fingerprint scanner. This key doesn’t always stay awake and you have to press and wake up before using it. The fingerprint scanner feels quite fast. The bezels are very thin. Curved edges provide comfortable holding. The power button is present on the right side. And beside the power button come the sim card tray where you will find two sim dedicated slots which can take two nano Sims and a micro SD card slot. The volume rockers come to the left side.
The stereo speakers located at the bottom beside the micro USB and comes along. On the top, the display comes the light sensors. The front camera is placed above the display. The rear camera is on the back side with LED flash and the laser autofocus. The three capacitive touch buttons on the bottom display which are backlit.

Having a wide viewing angles of 178 degrees. The 5.5-inch display is vivid with good sunlight readability. Even though there is nothing wrong with the screen. The full HD resolution should be a lot better than considering its size.

It has 3075mAh non-removable battery which provides a very good back up. The device is provided with dual sim slots where SD card uses sim slot 2. The device supports 4G connectivity. Supports OTG
The UI resembles the Apple ios quite a bit. We just wish Oppo had gone with Android marshmallow rather than lollipop which is a bit old now. Performance is quite good as far as apps and 4G connectivity via sandstone. The fingerprint sensor is quick and it can be used to lock apps. You can even program to launch an app or dial a number directly after unlocking the phone.
The speaker is fairly loud and the audio quality is good. Thanks to the software announcements. The built-in battery will easily last more than a day on a single charge. We managed to get little overt 10 hrs of continuous video playback which is good. Unfortunately, the phone doesn’t support fast charging. F1s gets much more cosmetic update than its predecessor which makes a standard among the competition.
But we like things such as higher resolution, display and we think its hyper manufacturers retire android lollipop. Apart from this, the metal body is beautiful and those who love the style will appreciate the latest version of the colored OS. I played Leo’s fortune which is the most graphic intensive game and it handles pretty well.
It has no frame drops and no lag. With Unkilled the performance is good. You can hardly notice stutters. The game plays smooth and responsive. The Geekbench mark scores of the device are 707 on a single core and 2935 on the multi-core. 21572 On quadrant benchmarks. The AnTuTu score is 41406.
The main highlight of the phone is the 16Mp front camera which produced details shorts even in less than ideal lighting conditions. The screen flash is more powerful this time around which helps in low light situations.
The camera app is similar to what we have seen before. You can snap a picture by the touch or raising a hand. Even you do get many modes to choose from including beautify 4.0. The rear 13MP camera also captures good landscapes and macro shots with good detail and quick focusing.
The Oppo F1s has a good set of cameras and the battery life is pretty solid. It is happy to see that we get the high-end features at the low-end price. If you are looking for a good selfie smartphone then this one should be considered as at the end of the day all boils down to the price tag. So this our review about the Oppo F1s.
