We have reviewed all of OPPO’s current offerings and it took us some time to distinguish the difference between the F1 Plus and the F1s.  Actually all of OPPO’s selfie centric F-series has a generic look – metal body, thin and sexy body and all got their inspiration from iPhone. This is not a bad thing and we think aside from the camera, their design inspiration is the reason why OPPO has penetrated the the Top 5 smartphone brands of the world.

Ports and buttons check:

  • Left – volume rockers
  • Right – power button, microSD card slot and SIM card trays
  • Top – noise cancelling microphones
  • Bottom – 3.5mm headset jack, microphone, and speaker grill
  • Back – 13 megapixel rear camera with flash
  • Front – two capacitive buttons, home button, 16 megapixel front camera

Its good to know that you can insert two nano SIM cards and a microSD card all together. Many smartphones nowadays adapt a hybrid SIM 2 slot in which you can also insert a microSD card. If you insert a microSD card, you can insert a SIM on the same slot. We will be exploring the OPPO F1s for two weeks and for our full review, we will be highlighting the phone’s camera prowess and performance. 🙂
