2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent build quality, with Apple's famed attention to detail
  • Beautiful design, premium materials (unibody aluminium frame), and iconic looks
  • Relatively compact and easy to grasp compared to similar sized flagship phones of other brands
  • Rounded sides make it comfortable to hold
  • The Touch ID biometric touch sensor is the still the most accurate and responsive fingerprint sensor around
  • Brilliant display with potent brightness levels, wide viewing angles, and superb color accuracy
  • The glass screen is now stronger and more shatter-resistant than iPhone 6
  • The most powerful and distinctive feature in the new interface is the 3D-touch functionality, which adds new layers of interaction to the touch display, and opens up various possibilities
  • 3D-touch lets you perform quick actions for the app on the homescreen without actually opening the app
  • Buttery smooth, slick performance all-round - arguably one of the fastest performing phone to date
  • Excellent rear camera - camera takes realistic photos in virtually every situation - no other phone comes close
  • The front camera is a big improvement over the previous iterations - images are realistic and detailed
  • Live photo feature records 1.5 seconds of action before and after your shot - and the shots animate as you swipe through the camera roll
  • Very good loudspeaker
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Decent call quality
  • Very good battery life
  • Stronger 7000 series aluminum gives it greater strength and durability as compared to iPhone 6
  • iOS 9 is both beautiful and simple, and brings in tons of functionality upgrades
  • Absolutely stunning design - this one is sure to get you those 'oohs' and 'aaahs' when you whip it out in public - 2 unique innovations stand out - one is the unusual "water-drop notch" that reduces the notch to about as small as you could go without shifting to a 'pop-out camera' phone like the Find X - and second is the blue-black shimmering rear with its diamond pattern, that is just breathtaking to look at from any angle - it's not possible to stress this enough, the Oppo F9 looks gorgeous
  • The water drop notch also ensures a commendable screen-to-body ratio of 90.8 percent (the iPhone X's ratio stands at a paltry 82 percent)
  • The phone’s face unlock and fingerprint mechanism are lightning fast, and at par with the OnePlus 6
  • The display by itself is great too - it's a bright screen with great, punchy colours - arguably the best display in this price bracket
  • Gorilla Glass 6 protection - one of the first phones in India to have it
  • Very good dual camera setup on the rear - takes colorful and bright photos, good portraits, and does reasonably well in low light too - overall, it's on par with the excellent Poco F1 and only a shade behind the OnePlus 6
  • Good front camera too - takes good AI powered selfies
  • Good call quality
  • Good battery life, with a 3500mAh battery - will comfortably last the day - and does not tend to heat up during processor-heavy tasks
  • Overall, if you want a phone that's the ultimate looker, you won't go wrong with the Oppo F9, and you will get a pretty good camera to go along with it - having said that, if you prioritise performance over looks, there is no competing with the Poco F1 here, it's just in a different league - finally, if you want the most simple, clean software experience of all, with an equally good camera, then the Nokia 7 Plus is worth looking at
2-minute Review [Negatives]

No Major Negatives!

  • ColorOS is decent as an Android UI, has a lot of features, and is quite 'colorful', but it will certainly come with it's share of bloat - such as duplicate Music, Gallery and Phone Manager apps, an unnecessary smart assistant, and an annoying 2-step process to dismiss notifications
  • While the performance is pretty good in almost all use cases with a solid mid-range Helio P60 at the core (similar to Snapdragon 652), the performance expectations in this price bracket are now completely shifted since the launch of the powerhouse Poco F1 - if you are not much into heavy gaming, the Oppo F9 will more than suffice - but if you want truly breathtaking performance, there is no match for the Poco F1 in the mid-range
  • While the cameras are good with still photography, video recording capabilities on the phone are average at best - there is no OIS or EIS so the videos are quite shaky - also, 1080p and 720p are the only modes in which you can shoot videos
  • The single speaker on the phone’s bottom, though loud, sounds hollow and crackles
  • No fast charging support
  • Uses the old microUSB standard, instead of the modern USB-C

  1. If you prioritise good looks over everything else, the Oppo F9 does have that going for it....on the other hand, some of the competitors offer better value for money
