OPPO F1 Plus First Impressions

Book & Buy

We’ve been wanting to get the OPPO F1 Plus since it was launched last February here in Manila and it’s because we were expecting a fully packed Android phone coming with its beautiful specs that we’ve been hearing a lot. Oh by the way, as you are reading this, the OPPO F1S has already came out. Just as with the OPPO F1 Plus, the specs of the F1S is also worth every penny in your pocket. We’ll do a separate first impressions with the OPPO F1S on our next feature.

Going back to the OPPO F1 Plus as opportunity knocked in, we were able to get a hold of a brand new spanking OPPO F1 Plus in our very hand.

OPPO F1 Plus is a very decent and elegant smartphone to begin with. Unboxing it got us full surprised as we marveled the awesome Gold color of the exterior metallic body design which makes the OPPO F1 Plus more premium and expensive in all sense.

You’ll never get disappointed once you purchased an OPPO F1 Plus. Out of box, the OPPO F1 Plus comes with the unit itself dressed in a metallic Gold color, a back casing, screen protector, USB charging cable and charging adaptor, OTG USB cable, SIM card ejector pin, earphones, and the User Quick Manual and Warranty Guide.

OPPO F1 Plus features and specs


For a premium price, you’ll be getting a lot and it is satisfaction guaranteed. For those who complain of short-lived battery performance, the OPPO F1 Plus will make up for that.

Fingerprint Access

With the Front Touch Access fingerprint sensor, unlocking your device makes it more faster and convenient when using the phone. You can add up to five fingerprints to make your device more secure and safe from unauthorized use of your smartphone.


The 16MP and 13MP rear and front facing cameras are quite superior when it comes to phone imaging. Audio when recording videos is clear and OPPO F1 Plus has a mic that can capture sounds that don’t explode in the ear when listening into. Taking selfie photos become more detailed and amazing.


Though it never said that OPPO F1 Plus is water resistant or water proof, we got to use this device on different weather and temperature and we can live up saying that it can withstand dust, heat, water (rain and swimming pool), and cold temperature. These situations were all based on our personal experience and we do not suggest you try capturing photos and videos while it is raining outside or while you’re swimming in the pool. We just like to test drive our device in a badass style!

Accidental Drop

Twice it happened. Because of the sleek and very smooth design of the OPPO F1 Plus, there were a couple of times that we’ve let it slip in our hands. Accidentally, the device got loose from our grip and fell on the floor. The best part, we didn’t see any dent on the outer surface or broken the performance of the OPPO F1 Plus.


OPPO F1 Plus has a 2850mAh battery that can last all throughout the day with a enough juice left that you can use for the next few more hours.


For users who have problems on storage and dumping files because their phone’s memory always ran out space, they will be totally happy to find out that OPPO F1 Plus has a gigantic 64GB. Now this is massive. We have tested this gigantic ROM storage by shooting photos and video, saving screenshots and download files, and still we got more space to on our OPPO F1 Plus device to fill in.

Rating and Recommendation

Out of 5, we are giving the OPPO F1 Plus a perfect 5-star rating. And our recommendation, if you have the bucks to spend, get the OPPO F1 Plus. It’s worth it. OPPO F1 Plus is available at P19,990.
