2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Nice looking, notch-based full screen design, that is in trend these days following the launch of the iPhone X
  • Very light
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back is quick and accurate, and face unlock also works quickly
  • The phone’s tall 6.23-inch LCD IPS display with full HD+ resolution is sharp and impressive
  • The Oppo F7 uses the company’s Color OS user interface, on top of Android - it’s a reasonably good single-layered UI with a heavy focus on visuals and apps built by Oppo
  • Good speed/performance - the phone handles both basic use, and graphic-intensive games fairly well, and you will get a clean, lag-free experience
  • Good rear and front cameras - pictures taken with the Oppo F7 are surprisingly good for the price of the phone, despite not having as many sensors as you’d expect from smartphones these days - the single-camera setup on either side might come across as inadequate, but the camera makes up for this with its AI chops - pictures are generally well composed and look good, with accurate colors and sharp contrast where needed
  • The AI abilities are really put to work in getting the depth-effect and vivid-mode shots - despite the single-camera setup, portrait shots with the front camera are excellent, getting colors, depth-effect and boundaries fairly accurately - the rear-camera’s portrait mode is decent too
  • Overall, the camera capabilities are on par with the very good cameras on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, and the Vivo V9 - which are also likely to be the Oppo F7's main competitors
  • Battery life is good as well, with the phone comfortably running for a full day on a single charge with moderate use
  • On the whole, the Oppo F7 is a good choice for a stylish looking device that takes especially good selfies - it also has a slight edge over its main competitor, the Vivo V9 in terms of performance, overall camera quality, and battery life (though in terms of design and build quality, the Vivo V9 is ahead)
  • Premium, stylish, sleek design
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back is quick and can also be used to click images
  • Beautiful, large, immersive Full View Display (Infinity Display), that is great for watching videos
  • Vivo's FunTouch UI is decent, and largely inspired from iOS
  • Seamless performance in day-to-day use, and multitasking and gaming are managed well too
  • The phone also remains cool, even when pushed
  • Comes with dedicated two SIM card slots and a micro SD-Card slot as well (unlike the hybrid approach taken by some of the competition)
  • Excellent selfie camera with a portrait bokeh effect available for your selfies - one of the best selfie cameras on any phone
  • Rear camera is decent too (though not great) and takes decent images in daylight, producing pleasing colors
  • Decent 1080p videos - come out with good contrast and colors
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the day with moderate use
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The phone is primarily built of plastic, and the build quality could have been better at this price point
  • Charging and data transfers use a micro-USB port, which is a little old school in this age where even budget devices are going to USB Type-C way
  • There is no fast charging tech, so charging the Oppo F7 will take a while – about two hours (or a little more) to fully top up the battery with a regular charger
  • Plastic body
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Although daily performance is good, the phone is not meant for power users - there are better performing phones available in this price bracket
  • Rear camera performance in low light is average
  • No fast charging support
