We got our hands on the new OPPO F15, here’s our review
Smartphone users who are hunting for premium quality and affordability would be delighted to lay their hands on the latest star of the F-series, OPPO F15.
Stylish design and premium feel
The OPPO F15 we received is the ‘lightning black’ colour. The rear panel of the phone is glossy, which reflects the light that falls on it, adding more finesse to the extremely sleek design of the smartphone. At 172g and 7.9mm ‘thinness’, we were pleasantly surprised by the lightness of this phone that makes it exceptionally convenient to carry around.
OPPO F15 comes with a 6.4-inch display and 20:9 aspect ratio. Yet, it snugly fit into our hands, thanks to its ultra-thin design.
The smartphone comes with a silicone case for those who wish to use it for a better grip. Moreover, OPPO F15’s FHD+ AMOLED Screen’s 2400x1080 resolution is dedicated to bringing a high definition experience. Other accompaniments include a set of in-ear headphones and the VOOC 3.0 charger which is deemed to be the fastest and safest charger. Moreover, the waterdrop design of OPPO F15 gives a seamless viewing experience.
Superlative camera system
The F15 features an upgraded, 48MP AI quad-camera system that ensures sharp and vivid captures. The 119 degree wide-angle lens is perfect for group settings, fitting up to 9 people in a frame. The ultra-wide angle lens also doubles up as a macro lens to capture crisp detailed close-ups. The night mode lets you click bright and well-lit images even with little or no lighting. The smartphone also includes an AI-beautification feature with several modes offering custom options for fun selfies and social media posts, such as big eyes, small nose, etc. We also particularly enjoyed the stickers on the phone to create avatars.
Another notable feature is the anti-shake video mode that lets you shoot steady scenes on the move using the primary camera.
In-display fingerprint sensor 3.0
OPPO F15 comes equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner, which can unlock the device in 0.32 seconds. We found the in-display fingerprint and face unlock to be exceptionally fast and convenient.
The final word
According to our experts, OPPO F15 packs a solid punch in terms of performance, design and features for just Rs 19,990 Powered by a 4,000 mAh battery unit, the phone can last for over a day, even with videos, gaming and camera usage. In addition, OPPO F15 charges pretty quickly with the VOOC 3.0 charger that also prevents overheating, even when you use the phone while charging.
All-in-all, OPPO F15 offers excellent value for money in addition to its premium look and feel that will especially appeal to the younger generation.
