    Oppo F1S Gold is the premium version of the Oppo F1S. Here are the details of this device -

    Design and display
    It looks much similar to F1S. The slightly curved edges provide a premium look and comfortable handling. The fingerprint scanner is embedded within the home button. The all-metal unibody design is impressive and so is the gold trim that runs around.
    The phone comes with a 5.5 inch IPS screen. You get quite rich colors and better brightness levels. The HD resolution is okay, but not much impressive enough. The display has Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. There is an additional screen protection( though I do not understand the necessity for the same).

    The Hardware
    The Oppo F1S is powered by MediaTek's MT6750 Octa core processor. The clock speed reads 1.5 GHz. You get 32 GB of internal storage coupled with 3 GB of RAM. Effective multitasking guaranteed with that specification. The memory expansion option is available.

    Camera
    As with most of the Oppo devices, camera is the USP of the smartphone. The 16 MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture is excellent with its selfie shots. The selfies come quite impressive even in low light conditions. The camera app comes with Beautify 4.0 software. The selfies can be taken with gestures like palm gestures and voice command. The front camera is capable of HD video recording at 1080p. The 13 MP rear camera is impressive as well. The camera has an Expert mode that lets you experiment with advanced settings.

    Software
    The Oppo F1s Gold runs on Color OS 3.0 based on Android Lollipop 5.1. That could be one of the issues one may have with the device. When a couple of devices have already been updated to Android Nougat 7.0, we would have been happy with at least Android marshmallow 6.0. The interface resembles iOS to a greater extent. It is lag free most of the time. You have the usual Google set of apps. Other built-in apps include Theme Store, Kingsoft Office, Security Centre, File Manager, and a video player. There is an O-Cloud y-that lets you save your SMS and contacts to the Oppo Cloud.

    Battery and other features
    The 3075 mAh battery looks promising, at least on paper. Video loop tests have indicated a backup of 10 hours. The battery should be capable of offering you a backup a little over a day. There is no fast charging available, and thus it would takes quite a lot of time to fully charge the battery.
    Other connectivity features include WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB OTG, GPS and FM radio. There is no NFC support though. The phone supports 4G connectivity along with VoLTE capability.

    Price
    Oppo F1S is priced at Rs. 17990. You can buy it via online or offline modes.

    Pros
    • Good looks.
    • Best battery backup and cameras
    • Overall performance is impressive

    Cons
    • Android Lollipop
    • Pricing is a little more than the expectation
    • No fast charging


    Competitors
    The sub 15000 price band has many better options to choose from. Prime competitors could be Samsung Galaxy J7, Huawei P9 and Vivo V5.

    Live....and Let Live!

The camera quality is one of the best with more than satisfactory performance. The front camera gives a perfect selfie style for the users. This model has also good capacity for long lasting user performance. The life of the battery has affordable for this specification.

    The major cons of this model is that the android version is continuing with the older version. The manufacturer of this model should have upgraded with the latest version while releasing. Moreover the duration of charging is a bit slow which creates inconvenience for the users.

    Issues with Oppo F1S

    Some of the people noted that the device has display screen issue. Though it does said gorilla glass for the model but the reviews have noted that the glass being shipped is a bit fragile. Also some people have noticed the battery drain issues. So it may also face the charging lot slower. But it may get fixed if it's software problem.

    Android version installed on the device is on 5.1 which means in terms of security patches, Oppo has to be very active for the device owners.

    Comparison with other devices

    Xiaomi'ss mi5 and Note 4 are not even worth comparing with Oppo F1S if you want a better selfie phone. Oppo is far better compare to Mi phones on this point with picture quality.

    Lenovo's Vibe series is also not much upto the quality offered with F1S. You may however find that new Vibe series phone having Android 6 installed. But the Oppo F1S is set at the Android 5.1 which is the only issue as it's getting too old for updates.

    If you want to switch to Phone offering Marshmallow then Mi Max seems to be the only option for you.

    This smartphone can be a good option for those who want a better selfie phone. Because at this price range not many good phones out there for selfie. And 16MP with beautify seems to be a good option if selfie is all that you want from smartphone.
