Business in Front, Party at the Back
The F7 has a 6.23” IPS FHD+ screen display with an 88% screen-to-body ratio. It has no capacitive buttons and it also has a notch that makes the display wider than other phones. It has a 19:9, 2280×1080 resolution that makes the images and texts very pleasing to the eyes.
Although the screen looks big, you will not feel awkward holding this phone because it’s almost the same size as standard 5.5” smartphones, so it really fits well in your hand.
We definitely love the glossy design at the back of the F7 which makes it standout beside other smartphones.
Smooth, Powerful and Secure
The F7 comes in Android 8.1 Oreo with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. You can also add a memory card for additional storage up to 258GB along with 2 nano sim cards with 4G signals on both, thanks to its triple slot tray.
It runs by a 2.0GHz MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core CPU which makes the phone faster and smoother when doing some basic stuff like internet browsing, texting and some social media. Gaming is also ultra-fast with the help of OPPO’s game acceleration mode. The loud bottom speaker also enhances the gaming experience.
The battery has a capacity of 3400 mAh and can actually last for a day with continuous use. It uses micro USB so you can still use your old cables when charging or transferring data. It also supports OTG.
Beside from the fingerprint sensor located at the back, it also has Face Unlock which is very fast and accurate. We tried doing wacky faces, doing it in well-lit and dark environment and it works like a charm.
Intelligent and Awesome Cameras
The F7 has a 16 MP primary (rear) camera with an aperture of f1.8 with LED flash. It captures amazing, well-detailed photos, especially in well-lit scenarios.
We love that it has a Vivid Mode that really makes the colors in the photos pop.
The AI scene recognition is also spot-on. It recognizes the scene and it automatically adjusts the camera settings so you will no longer need to do some post-processing.
AR stickers are also a great addition for more fun and creative selfies and group shots.
Let’s not forget the star of this phone, the 25 MP with Sensor HDR, f2.0 AI-powered selfie camera. Thanks to AI Beauty and Sensor HDR, you will get amazing selfies and you don’t need to make the effort to adjust manually, because the phone does this for you.

Overall, we had a great experience with this phone. It is fast and has awesome cameras that will definitely satisfy us for months to come. The OPPO F7 is priced at Php 17,990 as of this writing.
