Oppo being the official global partner of the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 also launched the Oppo F1 ICC WT20 limited edition smartphone. The new limited edition version of the smartphone was priced at an MOP of Rs. 17,990.
The Oppo F1 ICC WT20 limited edition to ‘fit the spirit of T20’ features an ICC World Twenty20 logo on its back panel. The Chinese tech firm will also be giving away the handset to winners of the ‘Catch The Six’ – Grab a six’ and few more contests as a part of its campaign.
The Oppo F1 ICC WT20 limited edition comes with a gift kit that include 2016 ICC World Twenty20 key chain, selfie stick, and a back cover showing the ICC logo. As for the specifications, the Oppo F1 ICC WT20 limited edition smartphone is essentially houses the same specifications as the original Oppo F1 but with a larger inbuilt storage. While the regular version features 16GB of inbuilt storage, the Oppo F1 ICC WT20 limited edition includes 32GB of inbuilt storage.
The Oppo F1’s rear camera captured fairly detailed landscapes and macros in daylight. Even indoor shots had good detailing. The highlight of the Oppo F1 is its front camera, which is an 8-megapixel shooter with an even wider aperture than the main camera. It manages to capture fairly detailed selfies under natural and artificial light while the quality dips a bit in low light. Oppo added a couple of new functions to help people take better selfies. Screen flash used the backlight of the display to illuminate face. We prefer this to a front-firing LED flash that can be blinding. It works provided the phone is at arm’s length. There’s also a “Palm shutter” feature which lets capture a selfie by waving palm and a “Beautify” filter to take care of those skin blemishes.
The Oppo F1 is priced at Rs. 15,990, which is not bad considering its overall performance. It has a lovely design and great build quality. General performance is good, and both the front and rear cameras deliver good quality in most lighting conditions. Battery life is also solid, given the moderate capacity. It would have been nice for Oppo to have added some more creature comforts such as NFC or even backlit navigation keys, which are lacking on the F1.
