OPPO Is the Selfie Expert and Here’s Why

the selfie expert OPPO F1s

The OPPO F1S was launched last August 2016 and since its launch there is no stopping the public from buying their OPPO F1S units. In the Philippines, where social media is our main form of communication and taking selfies is a must in every activity, the “Selfie expert, OPPO F1S” sold around 19,000 units nationwide! Okay so that is truly a milestone, but beyond the advertising what makes people buy the OPPO F1S? Why is it called the Selfie expert?

1. OPPO F1S Takes Clear and Detailed Selfies – the OPPO F1S was developed with the people who love to take selfies in mind. This is why the front camera was made with a large aperture to make sure that you capture that nice photo even in low-light conditions. The front camera is an amazing 16 megapixels camera and its rear camera is at 13 megapixels which is more than enough to capture that clear photo.

2. Voice and Motion Activated Shutter – what makes a photo blurry? Well apart from that shaking hands of yours another problem is trying to look, feel and press that shutter button on your phone. Well with the motion shutter feature you can take a selfie photo with just a wave of your palm and it does not take the photo immediately, the palm activated shutter option activates a shutter timer so that you can have the time to strike that selfie pose. If waving your palm is not your thing then maybe activating the shutter with your voice is.

3. Powerful – the OPPO F1s is more than a powerful camera, it’s fast octa-core processor and 3GB RAM gives it that power and speed to process app functionalities. In fact it’s fingerprint recognition feature enables it to unlock the phone in just 0.22 seconds.
