The Oppo F1s smartphone is being marketed as a ‘Selfie Expert’. The reason is it has a higher resolution camera at the front compared to the one at the back. When the whole world of smartphones revolve around more powerful rear cameras Oppo has quietly gone on to oblige the selfie-shooter. The front camera (the one that is normally used when taking a selfie) is capable of producing a resolution of 16 megapixel. But that’s not all. The Oppo F1s has a series of features that ensures that your selfies are more than just hastily made snapshots. Let’s look at its main features.
The Oppo F1s is based on a 1/3.06” sensor. Speaking of cameras, the rear camera of the Oppo F1s offers 13 megapixels of resolution. But that is not surprising for a smartphone that is tagged as a Selfie Expert, right? The Oppo F1s has a Selfie Panorama mode. Many a times when making group selfies, the entire group is hardly ever captured. Even if you have a selfie stick, it is a difficult thing to fit in an entire classful of students or a group on an excursion, without getting everybody to uncomfortably squeeze in tightly. Further, the Oppo F1s has a Selfie Panorama mode. Simply turn it on, click several images in a panorama style. The Oppo F1s will automatically stich them together.
The maximum aperture on the front lens is f/2 and the rear lens is f/2.2. The wider aperture on the front lens together with the lower resolution ensures that images shot with the front camera are cleaner. There is a LED flash that allows you to balance an exposure when shooting back-lit or when you are shooting in low light conditions.
Another interesting feature on the Oppo F1s is the Beautify 4.0. Consider this as your own smartphone based retouching app. The thing is it can retouch and remove a variety of blemishes, stuffs which you wouldn’t want to post on social media. Now, that’s something that no one is going to complain about.
The design and ergonomics of the phone are very neat. The large 5.5” display boasts a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 support for convenient use even when your fingers are gloved or they are wet. The display resolution on the screen is a HD 1280 x 720p. The feel is nice.
The phone supports GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi but there is no NFC connectivity.
