Oppo F5 is the latest improvisation of OPPO in the line of affordable
selfie smartphones which stands tall on the level of quality and
craftsmanship. Apart from awesome selfie camera features, Oppo F5 with
taller borderless screen, thinner bezel, and all- round performance has
a lot more to offer.
Let’s have a close look at the OPPO F5!
OPPO F5 Design
Oppo F5 is one of the first affordable phones with borderless
screen.Being the cheeky phone, it has taken a bolder step and went for
premium metal built, shifting from the plastic. The design is typically
Oppo in every way. Rounded rough – edged corners that make it slim with
thickness of only 7.5mm makes the design quality felt top notch.
The real attraction of Oppo F5 is at the front, where the display is of
18:9 which gives a refreshing look. Protection with 2.5D Corning Gorilla
Glass technology adds to the premium look at the display. There is
finger print sensor at the back; which unlocks the phone swiftly. Face
unlocking feature is also a major attraction. The Oppo F5 comes with
plenty of extras but seems to miss out on a few things, like a
OPPO F5 Screen Display
The Oppo F5 sports an FHD full screen which is upsize and full
definition, beyond your expectation. It is a mid range classic 6 inches
sharp screen display with resolution of 2,160x1, 080 pixels with 16
million colors.Since edge to edge display at a ratio of 18:9 trend is
followed by OPPO F5, the user can entertain from sharp crisp of display
while playing games or using Netflix. Touch response is accurate images
and text appears in perfect clarity.
The 6 inches large screen is amazing for perfect gaming experience and
there is enough space on the bottom and top of screen to place your
thumbs on landscape. You can even watch movie or TV show on a cinema
style 2:35 flick, with perfect viewing angles and perfect panel quality.
Perfect All-Rounder Performance
In this area, OPPO has made some drastic changes. The new Oppo F5 sports
a Media Tek processor, which is certainly an affordable chipset. The
Helio P23, an Octa-core processor, eight Cortex-A53 running at frequency
of 1.65 GHz is perfect for a mid-ranger. Paired with the Mali-G71 MP2
graphics chipset, OPPO F5 promises you outstanding graphics on screen
while playing games. Normally you will find phones with the 20-core
version. But theOppo F5 has the two-core version. Opps!
The SoC is paired with 4GB RAM and built in memory of 32GB. Although, it
would be much better if it came out with at least 64GB for the base
model, but at least it’s expandable.Gaming experience with new OPPO F5
will be smooth and fast. But in order to play high end games like
Asphalt 8, you need to cut down the graphics, to run things smoothly.
For heavier games like, NBA 2K17, you’re definitely going to want to
turn it down to get smoother frame rates.
Similar to other Chinese smart phones, Oppo F5 does not come with latest
version of Android. The device is running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, with
a generous serving of the Color OS. This brings a sense of
standardization and consistency to the user interface. This device also
comes with full screen with on-screen navigation keys.
The selfie camera of Oppo F5 is outstanding with fantastic details
rendering even in indoors lighting. It has an enormous 20-megapixel
sensor placed on the front with higher-resolution than the one on the
The Oppo F5 allows you to use a depth effect on the front snapper, but
this feature is absent at the back sensor. Although, it is not the best
dual camera depth modes; but still performs well. There is an “Al”
beauty mode that smoothes out crinkles, and make you look fresh in the
picture. It also helps in avoiding the eye widening and cheekbone-
chiseling that is there in other beauty modes.
The rear camera of Oppo F5 performs decently with bigger autofocus.
Image quality is better, with 16 million pixel load; there is a usual
limitation of a camera sensor. Details capture is outstanding in
daylight, colors are well-saturated, and focusing of the camera is swift
and fun to use. The Auto HDR mode is also effective.
Noise interruptions are there in low lighting, which can be turned into
fairly severe image softening when you drop down to a truly dark scene.
Both rear and front snappers comes with 1080p resolution for video
The Oppo F5’s selfie obsession is quite appealing for youngsters and the
social media-obsessed classes.
Battery & Connectivity
Powered by a 3,200 mAh, an FHD+ display and a 16 nm chipset, the users
have enough reasons to worry about the battery life.
As for connectivity, 4G LTE bands, GPS for navigation, Bluetooth 4.2 for
data sharing, Wi-Fi for internet browsing, and a USB port at the bottom
are all equipped. We doubt about the inclusion of fast charging, as Oppo
made no mention of the same during its expansive presentation at the
Oppo F5 has a lot to flaunt. Featuring with an ultra-slim surround and
face unlocking feature which is trending, this is certainly the best
phone in this price. Oppo F5 is ultimately a selfie king that aims to
display every single detail fantastically, and amazing background for
better Instagram experience.
