There are a lot of new smartphone out there and either it’s too expensive for your budget or it has poor hardware & performance (like multitasking and camera quality) for your liking. So now you need to find the balance points or your priority usability function like camera/storage/performance speed.
This is what you expect from the OPPO F1s that priced below RM 1,200
Best Selfie Smartphone in Market
If photo taking is the main core for you to get a new smartphone regardless rear shooting or best-selfie photo taking, OPPO F1s would be a great choice.
It has a pretty large sensor 1/3.1” for a selfie camera shooting at 16 megapixel with f/2.0 aperture lens. This allows you to take greater images like how you capture photo on the rear camera. It’s sharp, fast and also features Beautify 4.0 on the camera app. It even has screen flash function that works as a soft-flash light for better selfie taking under low-light environment.
Photo touch-up/editing is so 2000. OPPO has this Beautify 4.0 software that gives an edge to OPPO over it rivals. There are plenty of photo-editing tools and filters built into the camera’s app to get the perfect selfie for you.
Below are the comparison Beautify 4.0. Original > Set 3 > Set 7
The rear camera ain’t that shabby either, it has a 13 megapixel sensor with a 1/3” sensor, a large f/2.2 aperture lens and PDAF that support fast-auto focus.

One of the best IPS LCD Display
As per my previous comprehensive review of the OPPO F1s, I did mention that it has an impressively bright and high in contrast display. Initial I thought the OPPO F1s is using AMOLED display panel.
Although it only sports a 5.5-inch 720p resolution, the display is surprisingly sharp and details. This also extend the battery life span as 720p uses less power compare to FHD and QHD.
Blazing Fast & Accurate Fingerprint Scanner
The fingerprint scanner is very fast and accurate. You won’t even notice you unlocked your phone with fingerprint. You can even assign individual fingerprint for action like launching an app, make phone call and more. This is one practical and convenience use of the fingerprint scanner.
Expand Storage without Scarifying Your SIM2 Slot
The OPPO F1s supports Dual SIM and has a “dedicated” microSD card slot for further storage expansion. Majority smartphone out there supports Dual SIM and microSD card slot; it would normally have the SIM2 slot works for either SIM card or microSD card.
Although the 32GB onboard storage is plentiful for photo and video album as consumers we wouldn’t mind to have more storage especially keeping more selfie photos in the device.
Decent Performance & Optimized OS
OPPO F1s has quite decent specs under the hood. It is powered by a 1.5GHz Octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 which uses less power without trailing it performance. It paired with 3GB of RAM and runs on its own ColorOS 3.1 which is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
It has an user-friendly UI and optimized OS with rich features such as privacy protection mode, virus scanner, power saving mode, long screenshots, eye protection and more in the list.
OPPO F1s is probably the best RM 1,200 mid range camera phone you should consider.
