We were able to play around with the Oppo F1 during its launch last month. You can check out our short hands on here. Nothing has changed, it does look a lot like the Oppo R7 Lite. They look alike very much but as we look closely, there are few noticeable differences like the speaker grill is on the left lower side of the Oppo F1 compared with the right lower side of the Oppo R7 Lite.

Buttons and ports check:

  • Left – volume rockers
  • Right – power button and SIM card tray
  • Top – 3.5mm headset jack
  • Back – 13 megapixel camera with flash and speaker grill
  • Front – 5 megapixel camera, 5-inch display, sensors and 3 capacitive buttons

The first thing we tried with the Oppo F1 is the front camera. We took the photo above in broad daylight inside our Uber car. So far details are accurate with good amount of color and sharpness. We will testing more of this beautiful smartphone in the next days. Full review coming soon! 🙂
