2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 9 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Slick, beautiful, eye-catching gradient finish on the back (though the back is laminated plastic and not glass)
  • Fairly slim and light for a phone with such a large display
  • Oppo F15's in-display fingerprint sensor and face unlock work very well - face unlock even works well in dimly lit places
  • Oppo F15 is a tall phone - it's not the easiest phone to fit into a pocket

Display

  • Very good 6.4-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with a dewdrop notch and Gorilla Glass 5 protection - the colours are good, so is the sharpness - videos look sharp, with punchy colours, and the viewing angles are quite wide
  • Display gets adequately bright and is legible even under sunlight
  • You can watch Netflix and Prime in crisp HD resolution as Oppo F15 comes with Widevine L1 support

Software

  • ColorOS is fairly streamlined, and packs fast animations that help the phone feel snappy - there are of course several add-on features too, compared to what you would get in stock Android
  • There is, as usual, some bloatware that comes pre-installed (but most of it can be uninstalled)

Performance

  • Decent performance with the MediaTek Helio P70 SoC (similar to Snapdragon 660) - day-to-day operations are smooth and you can even play games like PUBG Mobile on 'Medium' graphics setting
  • Thermal performance is good too - the phone doesn't overheat when using the cameras extensively or even playing games
  • While the chip offers decent performance, this chip is typically expected in phones closer to the Rs. 10, 000 mark (such as the Realme 3) - the Oppo F15 feels underpowered, considering that the Realme X2 and Redmi K20 offer Qualcomm's superior Snapdragon 730 series SoCs at the same price

Camera

  • Good quad-camera setup at the rear - 48MP primary + 8MP wide-angle + 2MP depth sensor + 2MP monochrome sensor
  • The primary camera shoots oversampled 12-megapixel stills - in daylight, it captures fairly detailed landscape shots, colours are vivid, detail is good, and there's little to no noise in darker areas
  • The wide-angle camera has autofocus, so stills taken have good detail, close-ups are sharp and detailed too - and if you get really close to your subject with the wide-angle camera, you'll be able to get good macro shots
  • Portrait mode works decently well with human subjects and you can adjust the level of blur before taking the shot - edge detection is decent and image quality is good, when shooting under good light
  • 16-megapixel selfie camera manages some pretty good-looking stills in daylight - skin textures are smoothen a bit but HDR works well and colours are well represented - with good amounts of artificial light around, it manages to get pleasing enough selfies even at night
  • Video quality is decent and there is stabilisation when shooting using the primary camera
  • Selfie portrait mode doesn't work too well, unfortunately, whether it's day or night
  • There are few caveats here, like there's no option to shoot at the full 48-megapixel resolution - other features such as super-steady video and the ability to use Night mode for the selfie camera are also absent
  • In low light, image quality from both primary & wide-angle camera is average, details are weaker and there is visible noise in the darker regions - the ‘Night' mode helps brighten up scenes but the details don't improve much
  • No 4K video recording, which most of its competitors support
  • In low-light, video quality is noticeably worse with poor details and a persistent shimmer in the footage even with slight movement
  • Overall, camera performance could have been better, as two of its main competitors, the Realme X2 & the Redmi K20 offer better image quality

Audio

  • The mono speaker gets fairly loud

Battery

  • Battery life is pretty solid, backed by the 4000 mAh cell - will easily last a day and half with moderate use
  • The Oppo F15 charges pretty quickly too with the supplied 20W Charger, about 88 percent in an hour

Verdict

  • Overall, Oppo F15 is a decent smartphone - it looks good, and it impresses particularly with its slimness, light weight, and good display
  • However, at this price, you're better off with either the Realme X2 or the Redmi K20 - both of which offer much better performance, even more premium build quality, and even more modern designs
