Oppo F15 Overview:
Design and Construct
- Glass entrance, plastic again, and plastic frames
- A lovely gradient end within the rear panel
Beginning off, the design is among the many strongest elements of Oppo F15. The machine is enclosed inside a plastic physique. Nonetheless, from a distance, the shiny shiny end on the again panel could idiot you into believing that its construct utilizing extra premium materials, say glass.
It’s obtainable in two colour gradients – “Lightening Black” and “Unicorn White”. Personally, I discover the latter extra engaging and it’s the one which we examined for this overview.
Although the rear panel is a deal with to the eyes, it’s slippery and attracts smudges and fingerprints. So we advocate you utilize a clear case to be able to defend it whereas nonetheless flaunting its design. The aspect frames are fabricated from plastic. Equally, the frames are curved which makes it simpler to carry the telephone. The facility button and the quantity rockers are positioned properly and are clicky sufficient. Total the Oppo F15 is tall, slim, and feels good readily available.
- 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel
- A near-cinematic 20:9 facet ratio
- 60Hz refresh charge, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5
Oppo F15 options an AMOLED show which is a welcome improve from the LCD panel on the Oppo F11. It comes with an FHD decision and a tall facet ratio of 20:9. Colours look good on the panel. I didn’t face any subject with the brightness of the display even whereas outdoor. You’ll be glad to know that the machine comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 safety in opposition to scratches.
There’s a tiny notch on the highest of the show. We’re disenchanted that the corporate didn’t go for a trendier punch-hole show. The notch isn’t that dangerous although. It appears tiny in comparison with the tall show panel and isn’t distracting in any respect. Because it’s an AMOLED show, the fingerprint sensor is now underneath the display.
Efficiency and Reminiscence
- Octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 (12nm) SoC
- A single reminiscence configuration of 8GB RAM & 128GB storage
For some odd causes, Oppo has determined to go along with MediaTek Helio P70. It’s the identical chipset that we noticed on each Oppo F11 and F11 Professional. Whereas competing manufacturers are providing the most recent chipsets, Oppo has shamelessly used a chipset that’s now over two years outdated.
The chipset is able to dealing with daily duties. With the 8GB of RAM, the machine doesn’t disappoint with the multi-tasking both. Nonetheless, Helio P70 can’t ship in terms of gaming. I attempted taking part in PUBG on this machine with graphics and refresh charges each set to excessive, and the expertise was not so good.
Not solely did I expertise lags and stutters throughout gameplay, however the telephone additionally began heating immediately. So if you’d like longer gaming classes and easy gameplay, you can be higher off with settings stored at medium. Disenchanted with the best way the machine ran PUBG, I switched to Name Of Obligation Cellular. Right here, the expertise was comparatively higher than the time I attempted PUBG on it.
OPPO F15 comes with 128GB of inner storage. You too can broaden it through a microSD card. The cardboard slot offered here’s a devoted one and also you don’t need to sacrifice the dual-sim performance for prolonged storage.
- Quad-cameras on the again
- (48MP predominant, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP B/W, 2MP depth)
- 16MP front-facing digicam
In comparison with F11, Oppo has bumped the variety of cameras on the again from two to 4. The 48MP main digicam shoots footage at 12MP within the default setting. It may well take 12MP photographs using the pixel binning method.
Altering the setting from 12MP from 48MP was a trouble in itself. In many of the units, such a setting is offered on the principle digicam interface itself. Nonetheless, in Oppo F15, it’s hidden contained in the facet ratio setting.
Speaking about digicam efficiency, the first digicam is able to taking respectable photographs underneath correct lighting situations. The colours are each punchy and popping, and the dynamic vary is fairly good too.
There’s a “Dazzle Coloration” mode which ends up in extra saturated pictures and it’s higher to show it off more often than not.
Transferring on, the 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens will increase the Subject of View however sacrifices dynamic vary within the course of. It additionally doubles as a macro lens. However taking macro photographs is kind of tough, and more often than not I couldn’t get it proper.
I in contrast it with the 12MP wide-angle lens present in Samsung’s Galaxy A51 and observed how the F15 wasn’t fairly in a position to ship comparable pictures. However that doesn’t imply F15’s wide-angle pictures are unusable.
The portrait photographs aren’t downright horrible but it surely doesn’t do an ideal job in terms of edge detection. A51, alternatively, has a significantly better background blur and topic focus.
The night time photographs endure from a scarcity of particulars. Even with the night time mode on the photographs are noisy and stuffed with grains. As soon as once more evaluating it with the Galaxy A51, the common nighttime pictures are kinda-sorta comparable in each.
However utilizing the devoted night time mode function, A51 is able to delivering a greater publicity management. Regardless of this, there isn’t a lot distinction.
The selfie digicam is on par with that different mid-range units are offering at this worth vary. The pores and skin tone is nice and so is the HDR functionality. Nonetheless, portrait selfies endure from poor edge detection.
- ColorOS 6.1 with Android 9.0 (Pie) on prime
- Uninstallable bloatware apps (together with some Google apps)
The telephone runs on ColorOS 6 based mostly on Android 9. Oppo has been in step with the month-to-month safety updates. On the time of scripting this overview, the OPPO F15 has already obtained the safety patch for June 2020. It comes with some bloatware and most of them may be uninstalled.
You possibly can even uninstall among the Google apps akin to Google Images, Duo, Drive, and Information. The show is tall and I had issues reaching all of the components of the display, so the good sidebar proved to be actually useful whereas navigating.
Oppo F15 misses out on Android 10 options such because the Evening mode. We might have cherished to check the Darkish Mode on the AMOLED display however the function isn’t there. Oppo has already introduced that their roadmap for ColorOS 7(Android 10) replace. In accordance with it, Oppo A91 (rebranded F15 in some areas) can be receiving the replace in July. We anticipate the Oppo F15 to obtain the replace across the identical time as the 2 telephones look very comparable.
Battery and Biometrics
- 4025mAh battery with 20W VOOC Flash Cost
- An optical in-display fingerprint scanner
The Oppo F15 includes a large 4,025mAh battery that helps 20W VOOC quick charging. Due to its mediocre battery measurement, the telephone struggled to final over a day of utilization. Nonetheless, when you aren’t a hardcore person as I’m, it ought to final you all through the day.
Charging the telephone is not any drawback both. The 20W charger offered contained in the field can fill the cost type Zero to 50% in 30 minutes. Extra importantly, the entire charging course of takes a little bit over an hour.
Right here, Oppo F15 comes with an under-display fingerprint sensor. The sensor is each quick and correct. With it, I fully forgot concerning the default pin-lock, solely to be reminded by the UI each 72 hours. The telephone requires you to make use of the latter as soon as in each 72 hours. You additionally get a Face Unlock function which isn’t as safe because the fingerprint sensor.
Oppo F15 is a good mid-ranger if we bear in mind its colour gradient design, correct show, digicam efficiency, and battery life. In comparison with its predecessor, it now has an AMOLED panel, in-display fingerprint, Kind-C port with 20W VOOC charging, and double the quantity of digicam. Nonetheless, it nonetheless has packs-in a two-year-old processor that performs horribly in terms of gaming. It doesn’t function on the most recent Android model however we anticipate Oppo the rollout inside July.
