The Chinese company within few weeks released the smartphone for the Indian market and priced it at a market operating price of Rs. 15,990. The Oppo F1 went on sale in India last month however the exact availability varied from state to state. The company at the India launch had also announced that it would bring a variant of the smartphone, called the Oppo F1 Plus, to India in April at Rs. 26,990.
The Oppo F1 is priced at Rs. 15,990, which is not bad considering its overall performance. It has a lovely design and great build quality. General performance is good, and both the front and rear cameras deliver good quality in most lighting conditions. Battery life is also solid, given the moderate capacity. It would have been nice for Oppo to have added some more creature comforts such as NFC or even backlit navigation keys, which are lacking on the F1.
During our review, we found the general performance of the Oppo F1 to be very good; the interface functioned smoothly, and apps were responsive during multitasking.
