Australian Review: OPPO F1 – Cheap phone, premium parts

Despite the lacklustre camera, OPPO’s F1 is still represents excellent value. Punchy performance and a premium build give you a phone that feels like it’s worth much more than its AUD$300 asking price. At the same time, camera quality and the heavily modified take on Android are almost going to be an issue for some. If that’s you, it’s probably worth spending AUD$50 more to get the Moto G. You’ll lose out on a slick metal design, but you get an almost pure version of Android and a reasonably better camera. But if you value low cost and great construction over a good camera, then the OPPO F1 represents a hell of a deal.
