OppoF7 Review


Selfies are an inevitable component of our lives as well as they have dominated the skeptics right into a brilliant, otherwise predominant future. Oppo was among the first manufacturers to helm the niche with the Selfie Specialist F collection. And also now the company is the very first to use a sensational 25MP selfie camera with the new Oppo F7.

Yet the Oppo F7 is not everything about selfies, it likewise attempts to stay up to date with every brand-new fad, pretty efficiently at that. Scratched display – check. Memorable paint jobs – check. Intense aperture on the main 16MP cam – check.

Similar to the R15, the F7 utilizes the Helio P60 chip, which we already saw in action as well as left us with just positive perceptions. Yet the F7 is not as flashy as its R sibling – it’s made from plastic, it does not have a dual-camera configuration, and the blazing-fast VOOC billing is missing out on as well.

However, the Oppo F7 wasn’t suggested to be a top-tier tool, however an all-rounder priced quite attractively. And it sure looks like Oppo did a great job of selecting the R15’s essence and placing it to function cost-effectively on the F7.

Oppo F7 specifications

The only disappointment is possibly the plastic body, not that it misbehaves, but due to the fact that even the least expensive of the Redmi phone is now constructed from metal. The distinctive paint work will certainly offset that, and also the cost for certain, as well.

Currently, allow’s pop that Oppo F7 out of package and also see what’s inside.

Unboxing the Oppo F7

Oppo never dissatisfies with its retail bundles and the F7’s is no various. The Selfie Specialist comes crammed in a regular box including a 10W wall plug, a microUSB cable, and an EarPods-like headset. There is additionally a clear rubber situation for some added security.

The Oppo F7 may include a pre-applied display protector, which is one added action over the currently resilient Gorilla Glass 5 display glass it has. Still, we appreciate the effort and also we understand many people will do, too.

The Competitors

The Oppo F7’s primary target is a market controlled by Xiaomi. And while the F7 sets you back regarding twice as high as the Redmi 5 Plus (also referred to as Redmi Note 5 in India), it has a few methods in its sleeve.

Take the huge scratched screen for instance. Or the powerful Helio P60 chipset with a flagship-grade processor. There is the exceptional 25MP selfie camera, too. Yes, if you get on the budget plan – the Redmi will certainly do. But if you want much more premium experience with trendy features, then it must be the Oppo.

The Huawei’s newest P20 Lite has a comparable display and similarly eye-catching design. It’s inferior in efficiency, but exceptional when it comes to portrait shots thanks to the dual-camera setup on the back. The selfie video camera appears wonderful, however less as the F7’s though. It costs the like F7 yet seems to use less for the most part.

Nokia 6.1 isn’t concerning patterns, yet experience. It’s one very-well built light weight aluminum mobile phone, with excellent screen as well as chipset. While substandard in virtually every facet – screen, efficiency, electronic camera, the Nokia has pure Android OS for becoming part of Android One program and can do 4K video recording. Oh, as well as it’s a whole lot more affordable.

The Moto X4 is also an Android One smartphone priced the same as the F7. It has a smaller sized screen and substandard chipset, yet it makes up for those in video camera skills. The dual-cam on the back has remarkable sensing units, wide-angle lens, native bokeh shots, 4K video clip recording, among others. The selfies might be just 16MP but there is a specialized LED flash to assist at night. So if electronic camera experience is all that matters, the Moto X4 will certainly serve you much better than the Oppo F7.

Lastly, there is the Xiaomi Mi A2, which is still offered in incredibly limited quantities yet seems to be worth the wait. It has a high and notch-free 6″ display, Snapdragon 660 chipset, and a premium dual-camera with routine as well as telephoto lens. The front snapper is 20MP with bright f/1.8 aperture. The Mi A2 is constructed from steel, however the remainder of the specs are more Oppo R15 Pro, rather than F7. Yet, it’s less costly than the F7. Exactly how around that?

The Verdict

The Oppo F7 is an excellent looking and effective mobile phone. It has the stylish notched display, memorable shades, powerful chip, and also a large battery. It’s a great well-rounded package, and also it’s priced reasonably. There are a couple of shortocmings, yes, yet every mid-ranger has these.



We can forgive the absence of quick charging, as well as we can probably live with the plastic body. But we have actually seen better camera performance from comparable Oppo snappers as well as we just anticipated a lot more from the major 16MP snapper. It has the sensing unit, the lens, and also even the AI to back it up, but the examples didn’t live to some of our assumptions. Yet, the F7 will make up for that with wonderful selfies shots, which was its work to begin with, had not been it?

So, the Oppo F7 doesn’t truly master anything yet selfie resolution. As well as yet it’s not unsatisfactory either. It has what it takes to be a successful mid-ranger and also is priced appropriately. If you like it, you must go for it – it’s that easy.
