OPPO F7 is a premium phone with an expensive feel…my friends can’t get enough of this gadget. I was given a glossy red gadget which stands out from many of mid-range phones that I had a chance to interact with, and you’ll be getting envious looks your way when you pull the F7 out from your pocket when you’re out and about.
But when you take a closer look at the phone, you will notice that the rear of the phone is made from clear fibre and not glass as we thought since we were made to believe that OPPO F7 will borrow everything from iPhoneX, though OPPO says that they’ve infused it with a special coating that makes it stand out from other smartphones. The frame of the phone is also made from plastic, though you have to take a closer look at it before you’ll notice it.
OPPO’s newest phone is the first to use MediaTek’s new P60 processor. The new chipset is the first AI-infused piece and the company is planning to add several improvements over a non-AI capable processor. Another thing that I love about the phone’s intelligence is the fact that it’s able to detect power consumption and adjust the settings accordingly to match your usage.
OPPO F7 has the best front camera which doesn’t favor men at all but if you wish to rock a spotless face, go ahead and do it nobody will judge. The camera packs 25mg and improvised using f/2.0 Sony IMX576. The company increased the the AI beauty points that the camera uses to 292 from 260 – the camera can now apply AI beautification features to 4 faces when taking a group photo.
