  • Oppo F15 Quick Review: Goes All In On Style.
  • BBK Electronics has been bombing the Indian smartphone market with a new phone every few weeks since the last few years. It's mass-market brands, i.E. Oppo, Vivo and Realme, have been on their feet to come up with new models offering the latest features at prices that undercut Xiaomi and Samsung in respective price segments. 2020 doesn't seem to be any different and Oppo has a new phone for consumers looking to spend Rs 20,000 on a new phone.
  • This new telephone has a place with Oppo's famous F arrangement and it bets everything on the style and configuration factor this time. It's known as the Oppo F15 and there's just a single variation in India that you can purchase for Rs 19,990. Despite the fact that Oppo's forceful promoting effort positions it as a top notch telephone, strip away the F arrangement marking and it's basically the Oppo A91 from China. Henceforth, you get the entirety of Oppo's 2019 prime highlights in a telephone from 2020 at a significant cost. 
  • In photographs, the F15 advances yet on paper, it gets old highlights from 2019 and charges a premium for that. Is it then a smart thought to however the Oppo F15? You should hang tight for our full survey however you can peruse our early introductions of the gadget. 
  • Plan: Oppo stifles the distinction better Oppo and Realme. 
  • Oppo and Realme share a typical parts receptacle for their telephones, and consequently, the more up to date telephones from these two brands appear to be indistinguishable from various perspectives. The F15 doesn't attempt to break out of that shape and it feels like another of the Realme telephones under Rs 15,000. Indeed, place the Realme X2, Realme 5 Star and the Oppo F15 together and you may wind up confounded. The camera module position, the bended edges and the inclinations - these are obviously Realme from numerous points of view.
  • However, Realme and Oppo have their own fan following based on designs and the Oppo F15 won't disappoint them. I got my hands on the black variant and it looks more like glossy dark blue with streaks of reflective gradient patterns dancing all over the rear as you look at it from different angles. The longer quad-camera module looks good while the LED flash looks in terms with modern-day design trends. The panel at the back is made of plastic and not glass, hence a case would help it prevent scratches.
  • The frame is also made of glossy plastic and you will find a USB-C port (Oppo fans must be dancing in utmost happiness to get rid of the micro USB port) along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The buttons feel tactile too.
  • Due to the 20:9 aspect ratio of the display, the F15 is narrower than other phones. The display gets the same old notch-style design with a thick chin but since it's an AMOLED panel, the notch is slightly smaller.
  • On the whole, I feel the Oppo F15 looks nice and feels good to hold. However, some of the cheaper Realme phones offer better designs and premium glass build.
  • Features: Oppo could have done better.
  • The Oppo F15 promises a lot on paper but in an age where Realme exists, the F15 seems overpriced for what it offers. Whether it's the specifications or the cameras, the F15 is underequipped when compared to other Realme devices.
  • Let's begin with the display where Oppo has done a good job. The F15 gets a 6.4-inch display with an AMOLED panel, similar to the phones from Realme. This is a good display and since it's an AMOLED panel, you get to see punchy colours and higher contrasts. With my limited time with the F15, the display seems to be good for content consumption, especially for watching YouTube videos.
  • Oppo has been flaunting about fast performance on the F15 with the big numbers it flaunts in the specifications section. You get as standard 8GB RAM and 128GB storage- sounds nice. What doesn't sound nice is the older MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. The Helio P70 is a mid-range chipset from last year and was used in the F11 Pro. For a phone that costs Rs 19,990, Oppo could have offered a more powerful Helio G series chip for ensuring faster performance. In my limited time with the F15, the phone felt fast with usual UI navigation but a brief session of PUBG showed the flaws of the older P70 chip. You also get an older ColorOS 6 with Android 9 onboard - this is unacceptable for an expensive phone in 2020.
  • When it comes to the rear cameras, Oppo is using a similar setup that we recently saw on the much cheaper Realme 5S. As standard, you get a 48-megapixel main camera along with an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera as well as two 2-megapixel cameras for macro and depth data. A brief session with the cameras revealed a decent photography performance with the classic 'AI enhanced' touches on human subjects. Same is the case with the 16-megapixel selfie camera- it's all about enhancing your looks artificially.Where the F15 seems to redeem itself is the battery section. You get a 4000mAh battery to power things and you can expect an entire day's backup under regular usage scenarios. The 20W fast charging system is a nice addition too.
  • Oppo F15 first impressions.
  • At first glance, the Oppo F15 is an interesting phone in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment. It looks great with the slim profile and the subtle yet classy gradients. The AMOLED display also seems great. However, the rest of the package falls behind phones from other phones coming from its own sister brands. Going by on-paper specifications, the Realme X2 at Rs 16,999 is a much more compelling deal with a highly powerful chipset, better cameras and extremely fast-charging system.
  • That said, the Oppo F15 is yet to prove itself to us and hence, you should stay tuned for our full review.
