The Diwali edition of the OPPO F1s brings subtle changes to the original smartphone. The device looks and feels the same upfront, however, has a flame motif engraved on the back along with signatures of Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor. The port and button placement is pretty standard as well.
Specs and Storage
Powering the device is a MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 3GB of RAM working in tandem. In our usage with the device, the OPPO F1s performed smoothly with little to no lag while switching between apps or during the transition animations. The smartphone is equipped with 32GB of internal storage out of which, around 23GB is available to the end user. The storage is expandable up to 128GB.
The device runs ColorOS v3.0 on top of Android Lollipop out-of-the-box. ColorOS is a heavily themed skin which doesn’t come with an app drawer and lays out all the apps on the home screens. OPPO has furnished the Diwali edition of the F1s with a exclusive Diwali-based theme as well. There’s hardly any bloatware pre-installed on the phone, which is a welcome sight.
The F1s is a selfie-centric smartphone and follows an unorthodox approach of kitting a bigger 16MP sensor on the front compared to the the 13MP one on the back. The rear facing sensor has been paired with LED flash which unfortunately isn’t present upfront. The shutter speeds of the camera seemed fine and the colour reproduction was decent too.
The smartphone comes with a fairly minimal camera UI. The app comes furnished with a host of camera modes including Beauty 4.0, Time lapse, Panorama, Double exposure along with an Expert mode which gives users control of settings like ISO and exposure, along with several other functions.
The OPPO F1s is backed by a 3,000mAh battery which comes with a low power saving mode to prolong the battery life by reducing the screen brightness and limiting the phone’s functionality.
Pricing and Availability
The 32GB variant of the Diwali edition OPPO F1s can be grabbed from the company’s website for Rs 17,999.
