One addition from me, if you guys activate the POWER SAVING feature, the notifiactions from Line, WhatsApp, etc. will NOT appear. So I suggest you to TURN OFF the POWER SAVING feature. Thanks.
I've been using this phone for about one month. The problem I faced is only TWO. First, the external clock widget (from google play) is frozen after some minutes (the clock is not ticking anymore). The second is that the live wallpapers (animated moving wallpaper) cannot run well. Sometimes, it just got blank background, the wallpaper is gone.
I never faced the error function after downloaded apps from play store. About the calendar reminder/notification, I suggest you to install GOOGLE CALENDAR (yes, you will have double calendar apps there) and then install MONTH apps from play store. Next, just deploy the MONTH widget in the desktop of your phone. This works for me.
About the battery, yep, it is draining quite fast. But if you use this phone only for texting/phonecalling/chatting/browsing plus, by activating the POWER SAVING feature, you will have one-day battery life. Like I do everyday.
One more, if you guys wanted to compare phones, make it fair. Compare phones with the same range of price. If you compare F1 with R7s, I don't see that is fair.
Thanks to GSMarena, your elaboration about this phone helped me to make decision about which phone that I should buy last month.
I am vibhu I'm from Punjab,recently I have naught oppo f1 19Mar 2016.
I think any body never should buy oppo f1 becoz lots of draw backs, ist of all measure drawbacks if you download any software from play store it does not work properly,e.g. Call decoder,true caller,flash light,auto lock,etc
2nd major drawbacks is what's up images ya video store in phone memory not in sd card.
Tahasin, 30 Mar 2016Design don't fact. I am very confused in huawei honor 5x, p8lite, oppo f1. Which is the best q... morehonor 5x camera is worse both front and back. front camera work like 2mp instead of 5mp, so dont go with 5x
1. Contact sync with Facebook function not working. No response from sync button.
2. Calender features are like a ordinary phone. It should have features like Lumia phone calendar. Like Auto reminder of birthdays from calendar, yearly, monthly and weekly calendar.
just bought this fon a week ago. here's my small review.
Display quality is ok as its a semi hd display but its not vivid and particularly I m previous amoled user so display is not so good for me.
Build quality is amazing and feels solid in hand. Back penal is ultimate thing to watch out and it actually helps this toy stand apart than other Chinese products...
Lets come to the main part camera. According to me both cameras are just ok and nothing more than that... My lumia 730 produces better images than this for sure...
Touch is poor I thought but my friend told me that Windows os has extremely sensitive touch so you will be used too with this within a week or two...
Main problem of this mobile is notifications issue...
I never get notifications for WhatsApp hike fb or any other app. I am sure I have kept all notifications on and have made all necessary settings in security centre by making applications trusted and fon is not in any type of power saving mode...!!!!
So I have to open WhatsApp frequently to load all messages...!!!! This is a bug in os I mean color os for sure...
Battery backup is ok for me.. It takes 3 hours of charging and runs for a day approximately...
Music quality is very good and so earphones but speakers is too slow and also lacks clarity compared to my previous lumia 730...
Overall I am not happy with this mobile... But will have to use it for one year....:-(
Design don't fact. I am very confused in huawei honor 5x, p8lite, oppo f1. Which is the best quality full phone? Please tell me?

Lalalalalala, 29 Mar 2016OPPO F1 battery takes a long time to charge and it drains like hellJust got mine 3 days ago. Before I bought it, I made research first and I was glad with what I read. But now I am so unhappy , I havent been able to use it yet bec the battery drains quickly. Though, im not using it bec most of the day im at work. By the time I need to use it after work I get extremely disappointed bec from 100% charge, it drops down to less than 20%!!!! I am not new to smartphones so I always made sure I dont have any running apps left open, brightness set to be.minimized and so sounds are disabled and so other settings like accnt sync and so on!!! I am so disappointed :(

Have a problem with this. Simple light is not working when I have unread messages/unanswered calls. Tried restarting it, then simple light worked but after a few hours, simple light does not function again. Anyone who has the same issue? And any suggestion on what to do?
