OPPO F1 Review: Formula One Selfie Shooter

Intro

The OPPO F1 is OPPO’s new response to the #selfie trend right now. With ASUS coming up with the ZenFone Selfie and Samsung with the J5 and J7, will the F1 be able to fight on par with these giants? We think so. OPPO may be relatively new in the Singaporean market, but it has established a solid reputation here. Out of all the android smartphones, it has one of the best all-rounded performances and a camera that captures light and colours that most phones in it’s price range can’t.
