Design, Display and OS
Oppo F7 is an elegant device. It is fabricated with annoying plastic body which is covered with a shiny glossy layer. As a result, the Oppo F7 looks shiny and attractive but its plastic body is not durable. On the front, there is a full screen with 19:9 aspect ratio to offer you a big real estate for better screening. Rounded Edges make it feel for you to have a flagship level phone. It has an aggressive top notch to follow the latest Apple iPhone X. As a mid-ranger, Oppo F7 comes with a 3.5mm jack and microUSB port at the bottom. An oblong-shaped Fingerprint Sensor is located on rear for your ease.
The Smartphone sports a 6.23-inch Full Screen, LTPS IPS LCD Display, 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution, and more than 16 million colors support. Its big display gives enough brightness to watch videos easily at indoors as well as outdoors. The handset comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on front to protect touchscreen.
The Oppo F7 is powered by Android 8.1 (Oreo) which is skinned with Color OS 5.0 overlay. The Software runs smoothly and certainly it offers more gestures support, quick toggles and better configuration but it is over polished with Color OS.
Camera, AI powered Tech and Speedy Facial Unlock
It is a selfie expert smartphone which comes with 25MP front camera, AI Technology 2.0, Vivid Beauty mode, and other camera features which makes your selfies more enchanting and beautiful. AI Technology 2.0 captures 296 facial points and recognizes age, skin and sex, and adds perfect suitable beauty effects in your selfies. Vivid mode makes selfie colors more intensive and charming. Selfie Camera also offers Speedy Facial Unlock Security which works faster and unlock device instantly. Oppo F7 has 16MP rear camera of f/1.8 wider aperture. It can record full HD movies without compromising with clearance and quality. You can get splendid and good-looking photographs in low light as well. With the LED flash, you can insert more brightness in your images.
Chipset, CPU and Memory
Inside the beast of Oppo F7, there is Mediatek Helio P60 SoC which provides much higher performance than Helio P30 of Oppo F5. It is aided by a 2.0GHz Octa core processor of Cortex A73 to ensure you are going to have a smooth multi-tasking experience. Graphics are handled by Mali-G72 GPU while the gaming performance is enhanced by 4GB RAM. Coming to the memory, it has 64GB built-in ROM and a microSD card slot with 256GB expandable storage capacity.
Battery, Connectivity and Price
Oppo F7 houses a 3400mAh battery which gives sufficient power for a single day of moderate usage. Unluckily, it is not supported with Fast Charging so it will take a long to get recharged. In terms of connectivity, the Oppo F7 can run 3G and 4G LTE networks. With the Dual SIM cards, you can keep in touch with family and friends simultaneously. Oppo F7 Price is $340. You can purchase this device in either of Solar Red or Diamond Black. Solar Red variant looks more enchanting.
Oppo F7 is not a best smartphone in mid-range segment but it is a perfect sign of Beauty and AI powered Camera technology in this price.
