OPPO F1 Plus review: Better yet exactly the same

Posted:  June 17, 2016   By:    9 comments   



I got stuck when writing this review for the longest time. I spent an unnecessary amount of hours staring at a blank page in Google Docs trying to come up with an angle for this smartphone. Is it remarkable? No, absolutely not. Is it terrible? Nawp, that’s not right either.

What on earth do I call the OPPO F1 Plus then?


OPPO upgraded their F1 “selfie expert” smartphone with this brand new F1 Plus awhile back. We all found out that the original selfie expert was far from a selfie expert, so the question became if this Plus added any more points into that stat.

On paper, things look pretty good. With a more capable camera in front than at the back, you could easily tell which end should be doing most of the work. It’s built pretty solidly too, taking many design cues from a particular American tech company.

But, one or two big questionable choices have caused this device, that could have been so much more, to fall into the same trap as its predecessor.

For that price, better to top up and get a real flagship like Huawei P9 or ZenFone 3 Deluxe


    True enough. Oppo is loosing their touch, sadly.


Oppo’s phone is quite troublesome for whatsapp users cuz when actually the whatsapp message are received the phone doesnt notify the user


I rather buy the xperia xa rm1199 which have the same processor. Most slim width 5 incher which can easily use by single hand.

Thanks to Rory Lee. You really spent a valuable time of your day to write the review. Yes, OPPO F1 Plus is an upgraded version of OPPO F1 selfie expert. The configuration is not necessarily same as of its predecessor. Rather you will notice an improvement in its dimensions, battery capability, display resolution and most importantly processor, RAM and internal storage from F1.
