Oppo just released its first full-screen smartphone, the OPPO F5. This device boasts of a powerful front-facing 20MP selfie camera and AI beauty recognition technology. If you hate bezels but love selfies, then this is the smartphone for you. Although the company didn’t go with the dual rear camera trend, they opted for a single 16MP shooter.
Oppo F5 DESIGN
The OPPO F5 doesn’t look unique to me, it looks like Umidigi Z1 Pro with a single rear camera. I think Oppo really gambled with the single rear camera when dual rear cameras are the next big things now. It is curved and bezel-less, with fingerprint scanner mounted at the back just above the OPPO logo. If you think fingerprint scanners are old school, there’s a speedy facial unlock feature which unlocks your F5 screen by just holding it up to your face.
Oppo F5 DISPLAY
The OPPO F5 6-inch FHD+ fullscreen was increased in size and decked out in full high definition. The LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution and 402 pixels per inch can blow away your expectations. The screen goes right to the edge of the sleek unibody device, which feels as good as it looks.
HARDWARE and SOFTWARE
The F5 is powered by an Octa-core Mediatek MT6763T Helio P23 processor, a Mali-G71 MP2 GPU and 4GB RAM or 6GB RAM which offers speedy surfing for all your smartphone tasks and games. It comes in two versions, one with 64GB of storage and the other with 32GB of storage. Both can be upgraded to 256GB with microSD. It runs on 7.1 Android Nougat and ColorOS 3.2v.
Oppo F5 CAMERA
This is where the whole fun is, as well as the disappointments. Although the Oppo F5 is the first smartphone with the all-new AI Beauty Recognition Technology. The technology was developed with the help of make-up artists and professional photographers.
Its single 16MP rear camera might be a capital NO for some users, who are already used to dual rear cameras. Additionally, the 20MP selfie camera does not have front-facing LED flash, which is quite weird considering the smartphone is being marketed as a selfie-centric phone.
Oppo F5 BATTERY
The OPPO F5 is powered by a 3200mAh Non-removable battery.
