If you’ve been reading the blog, you know how much we’re crazy about the OPPO F7, one of the hero lines of OPPO for 2018. Aside from OPPO’s renowned selfie-cam, the F7 surprised us with the quality of its rear camera as well but we wanted to put the F7 to the test that’s why we brought it with us to our first E3 Coverage in Los Angeles, United States.
In case you haven’t seen any of our booth tour coverage and/or livestream segments, E3 covers 2 massive halls at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown LA. It runs for 3 days but there are press events that happen before and during the convention proper.
We brought with us the souped-up version of the OPPO F7, the OPPO F7 6G RAM and 128G ROM variant. Majority of the internals are the same with the standard version of the F7 – having an Ai-Powered MediaTek Helio P60 Processor, and a 16-megapixel f/1.8 rear camera and a whopping 25-megapixel f/2.0 front-facing camera with Beauty Ai. We’re hoping that the increased RAM will help improve processing time especially when shooting subjects under low-light conditions and the 128G ROM just allows us to shoot everything at max setting and not really care about storage.
After a couple of days, here’s a video “tour” of E3 in 550 images all stitched together in a hyperlapse video format for your viewing pleasure.
Here are more photo dumps using the phone’s camera.
As you can surmise, the OPPO F7 held pretty well despite really dark areas. Funny thing about the brand is, people keep stopping us asking what phone we’re using. They’re pleasantly surprised when we mention about OPPO and the crazy price point of the phone. The shinny red look of the phone was also an instant conversation started. When you’re surrounded with Apple or Samsung (especially in North America and Canada) a breath of fresh air like OPPO and the OPPO F7 becomes an instant head-turner! The additional RAM really makes a stark difference from the 4G variant where every app opens buttery smooth and there doesn’t seem to be any app that the phone had a hard time working with. The OPPO F7 128G variant is currently priced at Php 21,990 or $418.
