Is Oppo R9 useful for work


The Good The Oppo R9 is lightweight and has a premium look. The back camera takes good pictures, and you can expand your phone’s storage with a microSD card slot.

The Bad Game performance is poor, especially in graphically intensive games. The front camera lacks features such as HDR and its aspect ratio is too narrow.

The Bottom Line The Oppo R9 manages to get the look of the iPhone 6S, but it lacks the performance and capabilities to rate it as the phone you need.

Previous Oppo phones such as R7 have escaped the glaring breakdown of Apple’s iPhone design, but the new R9, known as the F1 Plus in some countries, is leaning toward it. R9 clones clumsily iPhone 6S , down to some aspects of the UI, but it does not fully capture the charm of the Apple premium phones. The result is a $ 425 phone (£ 299, or $ 599), which, despite the aforementioned similarities, does not stand out in any sense.

Oppo’s R9 looks just like the iPhone 6S (pictures)

Despite being too thin a panel to give it an almost edge-to-edge display, Oppo did not include a palm-deflection feature that became apparent every time a web page scrolled through me because parts of my hand were inadvertently touching the edges. Equally annoying is the overly aggressive light sensor; I couldn’t finish the Asphalt 8 racing game without automatically dimming the screen every time my hands accidentally covered the sensor while playing. Of course, if you want, you can turn off the automatic brightness in the settings to avoid this problem. However, as a rule, the phone is comfortable to hold and has a bright AMOLED screen.

How obvious the R9 is to tear down the iPhone becomes very obvious when you open the camera app. The layout icons are the same, and the camera app also uses the same “swipe to change modes” feature like iOS. As with most Chinese-made phones, you do not have an application box, so all your applications are stored on the home screen. The ever-changing function of the lock screen wallpaper was neat, but at best it is a minor feature.

The rear 13-megapixel shooter is really good, even compared to the flagship devices: the details were crisp, though the colors could be a bit oversaturated. I also liked the fast autofocus – it’s just as fast as the flagship phones I’ve seen before, like Xiaomi Mi 5 . On the other hand, the front 16MP selfie is pretty poor. There is no point in having more selfie when the front camera lacks basic features such as high dynamic range ( HDR ). For the next Oppo phone, using a wide-angle lens for the front camera would make a lot more sense than simply increasing the size of the photos, though there is a software panorama feature that acts as a “wide-angle” solution.

The camera app for the Oppo R9 makes no bones about being a copy of the one in iOS.

Aloysius Low

The phone has 64GB of internal storage and has a microSD memory expansion slot. The execution of the games was disappointing, as Asphalt 8 got a pretty bad result when I turned the graphics quality to high, although the 3DMark test seemed fine. However, in daily overall performance, such as opening and using applications such as Facebook or Gmail, everything worked smoothly. The phone’s battery was not too shabby and lasted 11 hours during the video cycle in airplane mode.

Unfortunately, given the disappointing performance and design of the copycat, the Oppo R9 (aka the F1 Plus) doesn’t feel worth buying, but if you’re still passionate about it, you can get it now through the Oppo online store.
