Recently, my phone is sending me a clear message: "Replace me!"
This has been the best smartphone I've ever own thus far. I have no complaints about it's specs and apps, and I have zero regrets despite it being pricey. I definitely got my money's worth. Unfortunately, some good things never last.
The search is on...So with a heavy heart, I searched the web for something to replace my beloved phone. Can another phone top it's stellar quality though? That's the million dollar question in my head as I asked Google to help me.
What I'm looking for in a phone:
- a phone that's light and convenient to bring
- with a good camera for my travels and random shots
- high memory for my files and docs
- fast speed for when I open my emails, blog dashboard and other apps simultaneously
- easy to access
- user friendly
Was I lucky in my search for the best phone? Oh, yes! And I couldn't be happier.
When I found out about OPPO F1, I'm ecstatic. It's the answer to all I'm looking for...and MORE!
I want a good camera to help me take photos worth sharing on my blog and to my friends. OPPO offers something more than good.
OPPO F1's 16MP front cameraMore light, more detail. That's the OPPO promise. OPPO uses front beauty camera with a 1/3.1 -inch sensor and an F/2.0 aperture. This allows for more light to enter the camera and enhances its sensitivity. So you can take natural-looking selfies even in low light conditions.
Beautify 4.0This feature allows user to capture their very best looks. Blemish reduction has been refined to ensure beautiful, natural-looking shots that are eye-catching.
FiltersYou don't have to rely on your social media's filters to improve the quality and effect of your photos. OPPO has a host of plug-ins and filters giving you endless opportunity for taking creative, shareable photos. Now it has water-marking features too! Perfect for bloggers like me who wants to imprint photos with time, temperature, and more.
Selfie PanoramaYou read that right. User can simply move the phone from side to side to take a wide-angle selfie. The F1s automatically stitches together the photos to make sure that the whole party goes in the shot. #ShortArmProblems solved!
13MP Rear cameraIt has 13MP rear camera with an industry-leading imaging chip. A 1/3.06-inch sensor allows the F1s to maximize light sensitivity, making for wonderful nighttime performance. The large pixels also work to bump up the dynamic range and give pictures a vivid depth and detail for capturing exceptionally clear and detailed photos.
A thing of beautyIt has 2-thread thin metallic bands. Made of 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen that's 5.5 inch wide.
0.22 Touch AccessFingerprint access is a problem to me because mine are really fine. But OPPO F1's finely crafted fingerprint reader is snappy, sensitive and durable the moment you touch it. Though the reader button is 0.1 mm thick, its sensor is snappier and more accurate than ever. With its self-learning arithmetic, the more frequent you use it, the more sensitive it can be. I know. It's genius!
Customizable fingerprint-activated app launchYou can start up camera with your thumb or open your favorite app with your index. It's lightning-fast and flexible, with up to 5 customizable fingerprint commands. Ah-mazing!
3GB RAMI wish for a fast-speed smartphone and OPPO offers 3GB RAM, that's faster than ever! The 3GB RAM and octa-core 64-bit processor make for smooth multitasking and seamless switching between apps, movies and music. My brother would surely want to download some games and would love how fast his gaming would go with this speed.
Dual SIM + Individual SD slotIt enables you not only to store 2 4G SIMs supporting top speeds of up to 150Mbps but an addional memory card as well expanding the storage to up to 128 GB.
