Although the screen is big, still it is packed within a compact and lightweight body. This is the reason why you can hold the handset for a long time without feeling any extra burden on your hand. It fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, just like any other under 6’’ smartphone.

The fingerprint sensor and the main shooter are situated around the back with a micro USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom side. This is a big plus inside any smartphone.

The new Oppo mobile phone is also one of the many devices to employ the iPhone x style notch on the top.

Lots of RAM and Stunning Performance:

The overall performance of Oppo D7 is quite good and doesn’t lack a “wow” factor. The phone is almost 80% higher in performance as compared to its predecessor. It sports a hefty 6GB of RAM which is paired with MediaTek Helio P60 Octa-core CPU. You would not feel any delay when scrolling apps or running your finger across the surface.

Moreover, the phone doesn’t show a sign of lag when working on multitasks or playing heavy games and apps don’t take a while to open. Long story short, Oppo F7 is simply ideal for seamless online game-playing and multi-tasking.

Long-lasting Battery:

The phone is backed by a 3400mAh long-lasting battery life with AI battery management that prevents a battery from an extra drain. The Oppo F7 has a capability to snooze or shutoff inactive application by sensing and intelligently adapting your usage pattern and habits over time. It helps your battery to remain longer which ultimately provides enough juice for long-day activates.

Beautiful Camera Set-up with Unmatched AI Features:

The OPPO F7 is loaded with 16MP rear and 25MP AI front-facing camera that captures the very essence of you by using Sensor HDR and AI beauty. With all the camera necessary features as well as AI features, F7’s camera system is dedicated to providing exceptional photo results in any lighting condition.

The main shooter offers f/1.8 aperture whereas the front cam is loaded with f/2.0 bigger aperture. The brand is adapting AI focused approach towards photography and that’s why you will notice clear and vibrant results, even in low light and complex lighting environments.

The rear camera with AI recognition system will give you perfect balance between brightness, colors, and contrast on every capture.

On the other hand, 25MP AI-powered Selfie camera will capture and produce as natural as the human eye sees in real time, with optimum quality and extended details. While making suitable alterations after detecting your skin tone and type, it is really your personal beauty artist.

Our Verdict:

Comparing with other flagships with almost the same specs and features, Oppo F7 is not a bad choice at all, especially in this price tag. But you may find its plastic body prone to fingerprints and can be scratchy at times. And you may also miss fast charging inside the flagship device. But all in all, it is one of the best budget smartphone devices around with super-large and vibrant screen display, highest quality selfie camera with AI features, rounded edges, as well as 19:9 full-screen mode for apps.
