Color OS 5.0 is OPPO’s latest version of custom skin on top of Android. Its a thick layer of custom UI that you will never see any resemblace of stock Android here. We’ve been reviewing generations and generations of OPPO smartphones and ColorOS never failed on us. It never lags nor stutter. The only instance of a major ColorOS lag incident was on our 1 year old OPPO F1s last year. Take note, that phone was over a year old and happened only once. If you are looking for a consistent and long term fluidity on your smartphone experience, we definitely recommend the OPPO F7.
From being the selfie expert, OPPO embraces a new motto “Capture The Real You”. The company aims to produces more natural looking photos with the help of AI (artificial intelligence). They’ve started a trend with the OPPO F5 back in 2017 on its selfie camera. In the OPPO F7, Beauty Technology 2.0 will bring out the best of your selfies in a more natural and realistic way. It also takes better selfies no matter what lighting situation you have.
AI- POWERED SCENE RECOGNITION REAR CAMERA
OPPO alos joined the growing number of smartphones using AI tech for their rear cameras. The 16 megapixel rear camera automatically adjust settings like exposure, contrast and color saturation in order to get the best photo of your subject.
BIG MEMORY, BIG RAM
Mediatek’s new chipset, the Helio P60 blew our minds big time! Its fast, never lags and of vcourse, gamers will love this chipset very much. Now the OPPO F7 has 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The 128GB version of the OPPO F7 has double the internal storage plus microSD card expansion, and 6GB of RAM. This means you can leave more apps and tasks open in the background and still getting seamless experience. The OPPO F7 is definitely a phone for gamers.
LONG TERM USE
And since we’ve mentioned fluidity, in long term use, OPPO has been consistently fixing bugs for ColorOS. But based on their track record, they are not diligent with Android updates especially those major ones. The good news is OPPO has committed on Google’s Android P Beta Program recently. This means there is a big possibility that Android P will come to your OPPO F7 along with the optimizations that ColorOS brings. Let’s keep our fingers crossed on this.
So, is the OPPO F7 (128GB) worth getting for P21,990? Actually yes. We know it may be pricey but you must consider its long term use, the processor, AI-guided cameras, the large memory and generous RAM management which you cannot get with competing smartphones.
