Out of the Box
Oppo has been very generous in terms of giving freebies out of the box of the F1s. During the pre-order, people will receive a smartcover, jelly case, micro memory card and selfie stick. Problem with new released device is the absence of available cases upon purchase. So having this freebies will save your hard earned device from instant scratches and the like. It also includes a charger, micro usb cord , manuals and sim ejector. Pretty nice right?
Design and Build
The F1s is reminiscent of the previous F1Plus which has been a head turner because of its premium looks and design. Same goes with the Oppo F1s. The device is nice to hold and perfect on your grip. I also agree the design wise, it is also looks on the iphonish side. The front is dominated by the 5.5 inches HD screen on a 2.5d curved glass with gorilla glass 4 protection. It also has the earpiece and the huge 16mp front camera selfie shooter with 2.0 aperture. Im not surprised since this is dubbed as a camera phone and the “s” probably stands for selfie. While the HD resolution may not be appealing, the nice display and viewing angles make up for this. The finger print scanner for security is also place on the front side which is quite fast and snappy. Volume rocker is on the left side while the power button is on the right. The hybrid sim tray which can use both dual sim and dedicated micro The 3.5mm jack is at the bottom together with the micro usb port and speaker grill. The bezel is surprisingly thin and adds premium looks to the device. The back part is dominated by a metallic cover which is good to hold and manageable on hand.
Powering the Oppo F1s is the mediatek’s new 1.5GHz MT6750 octa-core processor, paired with a Mali-T860MP2 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. This isn’t a powerful processor as compared to today’s offerings but this is an improvement over the Oppo f1s. Navigating thru the phone’s user interface named Color us 3.0 is smooth. However I felt a little bit outdated since the device is still powered by Android L out of the box. Hopefully Oppo will release Android M update or Android N if they will make an awesome update. Benchmark result from antutu revealed a score of 40k. This should be fluid in multitasking and casual gaming in real world performance. Gaming on the other hand should be fluid when casual to average games are played. Other heavy and intensively demanding games may lag since the processor used isn’t dedicated for gaming though. Multitasking is descent since it has a good number of ram paired with a speedy processor.
F1S is powered by 3075mAh battery which is a little bit higher as compared to other smartphones releases today. Battery is descent as it can last upto 10 hours of acerage usage. This only means more session of selfies for the selfie lords.
The front camera as mentioned utilizes a 16mp f2.0 aperture camera which is the main point of this device. It takes pictures very especially selfies. It has different modes also and level of skin toning effects which can be set depending on your needs. The rear camera features a 13-megapixel sensor with a 1/3-inch sensor, large F2.2 aperture, PDAF and ultra-fast focus speeds. Low-light photos were better on the front camera, but the rear camera isn’t a disappointment at all. I was expecting that a front flash is present but replaced by screen flash.

With its pretty nice camera, longer lasting battery attractive design and latest features including the finger print scanner this phone can suit you. Selfie lords out there will be pleased by this device. However there are also points where oppo needs to update their device. This includes an update to latest OS. For the price range and giving a HD resolution, one might opt to choose other but if these “ifs” isn’t a big deal, then this is perfect for you.
