A lot of phone for little moneyKey features
- 13MP camera
- 3GB RAM
- Snapdragon 616 CPU
- Great selfie camera
Constructed from metal and glass (oh, and a little bit of plastic), the Oppo F1
manages to far outweigh its meagre price tag.
It’s also one of the only phones on this list to come with 3GB RAM, making for a smooth multitasking experience. Qualcomm provides the CPU, in the form of the 616, and it’s a strong combination for a sub-£200 device.
The camera setup impresses, too, with the front 13-megapixel sensor capturing bright snaps and the 8MP selfie cam proving one of the best during our tests.
So, we’ve got good performance and a strong camera; what’s not to like?
Well, we’re not too fond of the display. It’s 5-inches and 720p, which is starting to get a tad dated, and while pixels can be tough to spot it’s not perfect outdoors and the auto-brightness setting is jarring.
We have some issues with the software, too. Oppo’s heavily skinned custom interface is old-fashioned and full of childish icons, plus it’s outdated and only running atop Android 5.1.1. That’s not good enough when Android 7.0 is coming this summer.Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £204
