Travel Gadget: OPPO F9 Review
Table of Contents
Manila, Philippines – OPPO F9 is the latest Smartphone recently launched by one of the leading smartphone brands. It’s a powerful phone with limitless capabilities in terms of photography, durability, charging, battery life, storage capacity and more.
OPPO is revolutionizing the use of Smartphone through the VOOC 5-minute charging and its top of the line selfie features which is a must for anyone buying a new phone. It has Dual Sim features and accepts Nano Sim. Connectivity won’t be a problem with its WIFI, GPS, Micro-USB, 3G, and 4G bandwidth.
Oppo F9 comes in three colors; Sunrise Red, Starry Purple, and Twilight Blue, all of which feature a shiny frame with some curves that add a unique appeal to the Smartphone. It’s lightweight with only 169 g and has a height and width of 156.7 mm X 74 mm. Its 6GB Ram is an improved version compared to the F7 although some features like its CPU and GPU are the same but never the less, its functionality is remarkable. Its 3500mAH battery will run for at least 2 days. Its high resolution offers clear displays and colorful screen.
One of the remarkable features of F9 is its VOOC Flash Charging. For people with a busy schedule, 5-minute charging already means two hours of talking. It doesn’t get better than that. It’s also safe too as it uses low voltage but the result is great.
Aside from that, the F9 has five layers of protection which means it has protective layers from the Smartphone’s adapter, its port, and its interior so it’s very safe. Its battery management system avoids battery drain and studies the usual patterns of phone navigation and automatically shuts off apps that aren’t in use. It also has VOOC car charger which is just like its regular charger.
The design of F9 especially the backside is amazing. It’s not only glossy but due to its curves, the colors shift as you move it. With three colors to choose from (Sunrise Red, Starry Purple, and Twilight Blue), there’s a color for everyone. Another new feature of F9 is its 6.93-inch waterdrop screen which, when you look at the front, you’ll see sort of a tear-drop looking notch where the front camera is located. And for travelers, the big screen allows better videos and games.
The 25MP AI selfie options of OPPO F9 plus its 5MP front camera with sensor HDR result to photos that are crisp and clear. So, whether you’re at a dark nightclub or under the bright sunshine, there are no worries for great selfie options.
Sample Photos using OPPO F9
There’s no better way to prove the fantastic photos this smartphone can capture than showcasing the sample shots I took from my recent travels. Here they are:
I literally tested the phone for all types of photos I usually take each time I travel. So far, I’m impressed by its capability to take fantastic low-light, selfie, food and landscape photos.
Based on my previous experiences using previous flagship phones of OPPO, I can say that F9 definitely is more than just a selfie phone. I have used this several times during my out of town trips and the travel photos are amazing.
As a travel blogger, this may be the most important feature of F9 that I truly love because there are times when I just want to use my Smartphone to take photos and OPPO F9 gives me that freedom to do that and the results are fantastic that I can use the photos on my blog posts.
I like that OPPO F9’s VOOC Flash Charger allows me to use it at once after charging it for only 5 minutes considering my busy schedule. Its high capacity and large storage are also what I need so I can save photos, videos, games and other files without worrying it’s taking too much space.
Lastly, the beautiful colors of F9 which come in Sunrise Red, Starry Purple, and Twilight Blue are attractive and trendy apart from being functional. The colors are also easy to match to my other belongings so that’s a plus for me. The unique texture of the backside is remarkable and a totally unique take on Smartphone design.
All these features and specs make a great Smartphone that I can use wherever I go.
