Oppo F1 Plus

The slim chassis Oppo F1 Plus has a chip Mediatek Helio P10 eight-core , accompanied by a GPU Mali T860 and 4 GB of RAM, a figure that places it at the level of many smartphones top the panorama current such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, although some like the OnePlus three have already made the leap to 6GB of RAM

Design: good finishes and little originality

Oppo F1 Plus

for a couple of years, design has become as important as the processor or display feature. Manufacturers strive to improve the quality of their products with more resistant materials and thinner shells.


There are few manufacturers who manage to be original, but do not try Oppo. The F1 Plus is a more than obvious copy of the iPhone in its version Plus

Our phones are increasingly becoming more and there are few brands that manage to keep an original aesthetic identity. In the case of Oppo they have not even tried and F1 Plus is a very clear design rehash iPhone 6s Plus .

The back is the most reminiscent manzanófono with that unibody aluminum casing and antenna lines up and down. The rounded edges are also legacy of Apple, with the difference that the Oppo F1 Plus is a laser cut at the joint between metal and glass that creates a kind of bright line surrounding the screen.

No But the Oppo F1 Plus is noted somewhat more having girded the screen, something that can not boast the iPhone 6s Plus. Adjusting the dimensions, ** Oppo get a 5.5 inch terminal more comfortable to handle ** and especially lighter.

DIMENSIONS 151.8 x 74.3 x 6.6 mm 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm
WEIGHT 145 g 192 g
SIZE SCREEN 5.5 inch 5.5 inch
Resolution 1,920 x 1,080 pixels

BODY RATIO / SCREEN 67.7% 73.9%

we continue by reviewing the anatomy of the Oppo F1 Plus and stop at the front buttons. The device integrates a fingerprint sensor in the home button which is flanked by two capacitive keys to move back and open recent apps menu. Although it is a standard provision that we have seen in many other terminals, the sensitivity of these keys F1 plus is excessive , whereas I pressed accidentally more times than I would have liked.

From the central button with fingerprint sensor I have no complaints, but quite the opposite. The fingerprint scanner is very accurate and recognizes the finger without problems in most cases, but what won me is its speed. Oppo promises to unlock the phone in 0.2 seconds and attest that is true. The effect unlocking is virtually instantaneous , simply rest your finger and press to go direct to the home screen.

As for physical side buttons , Oppo has opted to place the button on the right profile and volume on the left. Both the placement and the pulse is correct and you can access them without problem. They also have a very simple design with the same finish as the back cover, which in the case of the test unit was pink gold.

Saving the like, the Oppo F1 Plus has very good finishes and manages to convey a sense of quality that we require a smartphone top level, with the advantage of which is much cheaper

Saving the like, the Oppo F1 Plus has very good finishes and manages to convey a sense of quality that we require a smartphone top level, with the advantage that it is much cheaper. By the way, to safeguard the integrity of the device, Oppo includes a plastic transparent in the box and the terminal comes with the typical protective film to prevent scratches on the screen.

large clear display

Oppo F1 Plus

debate FullHD vs QHD still topical. While showcase leading brands have already made the jump to QHD or 2K (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) standard, there are many who prefer FullHD resolution or 1,920 x 1,080 pixels yet and are not few. Huawei P9, the Sony Xperia X or the aforementioned iPhone 6s Plus carry FullHD screens and the truth is that it is more than sufficient resolution in the usual scenario of use, except in the virtual reality .

If you plan to use your mobile with a pair of virtual reality type Gear VR, the best option is to opt for a QHD panel, yet still see the pixels (at last after all we are placing mobile very close to the eyes and enlarging the image with a lens).

Unless we will use with a pair of virtual reality, FullHD screen Oppo F1 Plus offers a very good viewing experience with sharp images and high contrast, while maintaining at bay power consumption

Except in this case, the FullHD screen Oppo F1 Plus offers a very good visual experience , with sharp images and high contrast, while fends energy consumption. Here we must give credit to the technology AMOLED , which reproduces deeper blacks and also helps to prolong autonomy, but has the usual hits such panels, is that the colors tend to saturation .

Eye Protection

Oppo does not include any feature to adjust the temperature of the display as found on other devices, but it is committed to a eye protection mode that reduces blue light issued by the panel. It can be activated from the drop-down Quick Settings and the Settings menu you can set the intensity on three levels. The result in turn is an image with a kind of warm dye that supposedly will not harm our circadian rhythms and allow us to sleep better at night.

The brightness level is high enough so we can see the content no problem outdoors, but the automatic brightness is improved . Not always right and in some cases (few) starts to oscillate although the ambient lighting has not changed.

As for the size, 5.5 inch diagonal is a generous surface, but we return to the screen-size ratio. Oppo is has managed to gird the screen to the side edges, leaving a profile of just 1.5 millimeters reduces the width and much easier handling with one hand.

Sound OK

Oppo F1 Plus

the only speaker Oppo F1 Plus is positioned at the bottom of the chassis and design again has manzaneros dyes, but what matters is the quality of sound, and in this sense has not surprised us, though we also defrauded .

the volume is somewhat demure and that helps the sound quality is maintained at an acceptable level. Obviously the low frequencies are lost when listening to music through the speaker, but does not reach those strident treble we usually find us in many smartphones.


connect headphones bass recover and quality improves significantly, but its design is quite uncomfortable and do not fit quite right ear. The integrated handsfree takes a single button that serves both stop playback and answer or hang on a call, but had not been more add the volume control. Speaking of headphones, Oppo includes a equalizer Dirac fairly simple in the Settings menu that offers several presets for different music genres and a custom mode.

The handset also meets on calls. The voices are heard sharp and microphone noise cancellation does a good job in noisy environments

Cameras. Good results, even with the rear camera

Oppo F1 Plus

the first time I read the spec sheet Oppo F1 Plus I had to go back when I passed through the section of the cameras. It is not usual, but Oppo gives more importance to the front camera with a sensor of 16 megapixels, compared to 13 megapixels found in the rear. But not only advances in resolution, so does in light with f / 2.0 lens, while the rear camera mounts a lens f / 2.2.

The truth is that the front camera gives very good results even in environments where the light begins to dwindle, as the sunset or indoors with artificial light, but the noise makes an appearance when the scene is too dark. It includes a function Fill flash across the screen , but does not work miracles, can help.

 Beautify Oppof1plus beautification mode: off / level 3 / level 7

the beauty mode could not miss in a camera for selfies, and less so notorious as the Oppo F1 Plus. The company has named this Beautify 4.0 function and offers up seven levels of retouching that illuminate the face and soften the skin, but beware raise it too much or you run the risk of ending up looking like a wax doll.

Oppo puts all the meat on the grill with the camera for selfies, and successfully, but it remains just that: a camera just for selfies. As much as you like go handsome or beautiful on social networks, the other photos do with the rear camera and, despite the technical differences, the results are very good.

the image above demonstrates the capabilities of the camera when conditions are favorable, both in the level of detail to expand as the color reproduction, with tones faithful and pleasant not get saturated .

it also meets more contrasted scenes where the dynamic range is tested and no usually burned areas or completely black unless we force with very marked backlights.

the rear camera has a pleasant surprise in low light, but miss an optical stabilizer to help strengthen sharpness, though with some striking results are relatively good. The approach also behaves quite well in terms of accuracy and speed and rarely locks in very dark as the one that appears on these lines scenes.

If you thought the similarities with the iPhone ended up in the design you were wrong. Oppo has also executed the design of the interface iOS in your visual layer, including of course the camera application.

App Camara

the Oppo F1 Plus offers various shooting modes on the main screen of the camera, to choose between Images, Video, Time lapse, Beautification and Panorama . Placement, how to switch between modes by sliding sideways, manual exposure setting until the shutter button copies are also copied from the camera application from Apple.

App Camara 2

However, there is a difference from the app camera and the iPhone are the functionalities. Oppo adds several additional tools in a pop-up menu that include Expert Mode, Ultra HD, double exposure or color filters.

Satisfactory performance

Oppo F1 Plus

The processor which is responsible for giving life to Oppo F1 Plus it is the Mediatek MT6755, better known as Helio P10 . The chip, 64-bit, consists of eight-core Cortex A53 running at 2GHz clock frequency, while the graphics is performed by a GPU Mali T860 700 MHz.

the benchmark tests show that he still has enough to reach the top ranking. But what interests us is the experience of actual use, not on paper, and this meets note. The terminal solves common tasks smoothly and also the most demanding. In addition, the 4 GB of RAM memory give a break and help convey the sense of flow we expect in a smartphone that aims to approach large.

it also meets in connectivity, LTE and WiFi wireless port dual-band modem, but connections management is improved . When we left home the device automatically connects to the mobile network, which allows you to navigate smoothly, but not the case when playing back and connect the WiFi network shift manually. In addition to the hassle involved, if we are not careful we can end up consuming mobile data.

Personalization not suitable if you do not like iOS

Interface Oppo F1 Plus

If you’re looking for is an Android experience, the Oppo F1 Plus will disappoint. We have already seen a preview with the app camera, but Oppo goes further and advocates a visual layer very stuffy in which there is a maxim imitate iOS

. like the iPhone, the interface coloros Oppo eliminates drawer applications , giving center stage to the grid of icons. The wallpaper, folders, how we organize icons and even their appearance clearly reminiscent of the design of the platform of the apple. To compensate, Oppo includes a store of topics with a complete offer that give a different touch to the system.

Although the interface has a strong personalization, is not too loaded with bloatware . Among the applications included by Oppo emphasizes Security Center, where you can optimize deleting junk files and manage apps permissions system. Although this interface is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop, Oppo includes a permit system that we have to accept or reject individually for each application. It also has extra features such as gestures and movements with dull as double classic tap to wake up and turn to mute screen.

Settings Settings menu iOS OS 9 vs Oppo Color

The Settings menu it has also been completely redesigned and is further proof that the Oppo F1 Plus is not a terminal designed for diehard fans of Android . However, we must recognize that gets imitate pretty good design and user experience is good, but it remains an overly intrusive interface and, above all, unoriginal.

Autonomy: fast charging works

Oppo F1 Plus

without having an overly broad battery of 2,850 milliamps F1 Plus Oppo result in an acceptable autonomy reaches the day without too much difficulty , even using the mobile network as the main connection.

Oppo includes built-in battery saving jumping when the charge level reaches 20% and limit connections to extend the life, but what stands out is the rapid charging system VOOC .


manufacturers solve the problem of battery with different proposals. A larger battery is the usual remedy, but systems fast charge are increasingly abundant and offered Oppo delivers what it promises.

Autonomy can get to stay short if we give use very intensive and this is where the VOOC system comes into play. ** with half an hour connected to the plug, the charge level reaches 70 to 80% **-but yes, only it works with charger and cable that come in box. In addition, the terminal does not heat up too much in the process, although here we must give credit to the aluminum chassis that helps dissipating heat.

Oppo F1 Plus, the opinion of Engadget Android

Oppo F1 Plus

after several weeks of use, the Oppo F1 Plus leaves a good feeling in virtually all points analyzed . Chinese manufacturing partner of OnePlus and Vivo puts on the table a very reliable and attractive device, both in price, as well as in design and hardware.

The display offers excellent viewing experience and cameras give very good result in most scenarios, even in low light. The fingerprint sensor is one of the fastest that has passed through our hands and Helio P10 Mediatek chip, along with 4GB of RAM, offers a fast and fluid performance. The rapid charging system puts the finishing touch to a terminal to be taken into account in the segment of super midrange, but as we have said, if anything freckle the Oppo F1 Plus is unoriginal .

The obsession to copy Apple is a bad fairly widespread in Chinese Oppo terminals and takes it to the extreme. Nevertheless, we must recognize that they have done very well and, we look at it look, its design conveys a sense of quality. is the software that we find more snags.

to start the terminal exits with Android 5.1 Lollipop at a time when version 6.0 is already about to be superseded. On the other hand, the design of the visual layer may be excessive and almost completely eliminates the Android essence, something sure scare lovers platform Google But it’s nothing a root can not fix.
