RishiGuru, 14 May 2016After using the F1 Plus for over a month, here are my observations: The 16 MP front selfie ... moreI fully agree with above analysis. Oppo F1 totally disappointed me. I own Samsung Notes 4 with which I can beat most of the professional camera and I bought Oppo F1 as second phone mainly attracted by its 16 Mp selfie but I curse myself now. selfie quality is too bad. Phone itself is Ok but not worth for 27K.
Anonymous, 17 May 2016I love Meizu note 3 the design is like Oppo F1 Plus more cheaper.Amazing isn't it!!! Meizu provides us a more or less an equivalent quality device in M3 Note at almost one third the price of Oppo F1 Plus. I like Meizu phones too. I believe the reason behind this huge price difference is due to the different marketing strategies followed by both companies.
BBK brands Oppo & Vivo make huge marketing investments in popular events of the country. Oppo this year invested INR 150 crore (above US $22 million) as per Economic Times of India. Then they rope in super starts from film industry like Rithik Roshan for Oppo and Ranveer Singh for Vivo paying them huge amounts of money. All this tons of money are spend by their marketing departments to create buzz in consumer minds and to gain respect. But all these crores of rupees spend needs to get back to BBK with additional profits if the company wants to stay alive. So every Vivo or Oppo handset we purchase contains a large amount of donation to their marketing department expenses spent on global event sponsoring and paying flimstars. Hence their smartphones gets unjustifiably expensive.
Xiaomi, Lenovo, Meizu and LeEco on the other hand follows different marketing strategy. They as of now only sells mobile online, they do not need spend money to erect an offline sales structure like Vivo or Oppo. They do not rope in any flimstars to gain popularity, and do not invest millions of dollars in sponsoring mega events. Hence they have very minimal marketing expenses. Thus their phones are much cheaper as we do not have to donate money for their marketing expenses.
And contrary to belief Oppo do not provide better quality hardware than its Chinese sisters mentioned above. However to justify their hefty price any of their sales rep will say so.
Revealing the ultimate truth to end consumers I have this strange feeling this post is going get deleted soon as multiple Oppo sells reps will now get active and report this post as a spam. If it so happens at least we will be aware their are plenty of Oppo sales reps who are actively trying to promote their models in GSMArena. Let's wait and see
It was really very tough for me to find out which smart phone is latest trendy. The most important part for me was to see which phone has got the best camera. But I had to give a thought over the camera phone. The major difference between Oppo F1 plus and vivo v3 max does not matter much but the camera phone that is Oppo F1 has 16 megapixel front camera phone. But the front camera of vivo v3 Max is 8 megapixel.

It has Dinorex T2X-1 scratch/shock resistant glass similar to Corning Gorilla glass of Oppo F1 Plus. Both comes with same pesky MediaTek P10 chipsets and have identical 5.5 inch 1080p screen size. Both comes with metal uni-body design.
F1 Plus has 1GB more RAM, but M3 Note compensates that with a humongous 4100mAh battery while F1 Plus have just 2850mAh. Both comes pre-installed with Android Lollipop out of the box. Both Oppo and Meizu are renowned Chinese smartphone manufacturers.
The icing on the cake is while Oppo F1 Plus cost a whopping INR 27K, Meizu M3 Note is available at a sensible INR 10K.
The glass mainly matters for the people like me. The phone is really very nice but if there is no toughen glass then it is really hard to purchase the phone. When I was in search of good phone I had seen Oppo F1 plus and Vivo v3 max but the gorilla glass of Oppo F1 plus let me go for it. Though the vivo has got good glass.

Personally I buy smartphones based on objective analysis rather than just being a fan of any one manufacturer. By following this route I have often ended up buying better phones for the price. I had the F1 Plus as a gift and those where my honest opinions. You may not like it, but I can do little to make you happy.
Maybe an Oppo fanboy will make you happy. :)

This is my opinion about oppo f1 plus after using it for nine days. I am not going through the common issue like "not getting notifications" (if your app is closed), but there is some issues you just cant ignore. lets get to the point.
the phone itself is good, there is no question about it. but i have some complain about color os 3.
1. it misses some signature gestures of oppo like "finger slide to volume control", "double tap home" to lock screen. these gestures included in color os 2.XX. the home button is touch responsive. so they may could integrate it.
2. games getting closed and mobile network disappear while playing games (occasionally).
3. this morning i found out that the phone is 6 hours delayed. it happened twice this morning even after i turn off and on "automatically set time"
clearly these are some issues of color os3. bcoz these did not happened on oppo mirror 5. its running fine. may an update will will fix the problem but im pretty much upset.
Ma whatsapp notifications are not sometimes not receiving until i open it.....plz someone help me.. Plzzz
???, 15 May 2016Should I buy this phone or not?? Guys plss help me which phone is better?? I m totally confused !!Yes, you should.

The 16 MP front selfie camera is all HYPE and take very poor quality pictures. The photos taken seriously lacks in detail and appears completely washed out in PC. The rear 13MP camera is just OK considering its sky high price. After reading the GSMArena review I find they also in line to my views.
I watched the uploaded videos taken by both V3Max & F1 Plus main cameras. Oppo has no advantage over Vivo here, both producing passable video quality.
We do not buy an Oppo F1 Plus costing a hooping INR 27K just for the camera. We would have bought a dedicated camera for that. There are other things to consider as well in a good smartphone.
The V3Max have much better audio quality. The sound quality is so good, it will blow the F1 Plus out of the windows in terms of sound quality. So music lovers will definitely vouch for V3Max.
The Android overlay in Vivo, Funtouch OS provides a more seamless and intuitive experience to me than the Color OS of Oppo.
F1 Plus comes with this crappy MediaTek P10 chipset which is a shame for its price. V3Max have way powerful Snapdragon 652 chipset and will definitely have an edge while playing intensive games. So gamers will opt for Vivo.
V3Max is a more value for money product in comparison to F1 Plus. Both have very good build quality. V3Max is available at INR 24K where as F1Plus comes at a crazy unjustified price of INR 27K.
At the end both the brands are owned by BBK Electronics of China, and represents the two sides of the same coin. Oppo is targeted to be camera centric while Vivo is targeted to be audio centric.
The biggest shame in F1 Plus is it miserably failed in the "selfie" camera department and have comes with a cheap P10 chipset. It was gifted to me or else if Oppo had offered me this unit at one third the price at which it currently retails in India I would have refused. It is a totally worthless phone according to my own opinion.
Te camera is well known for the Oppo phones as it gives features like auto rotation and HD effects. The problem with the comparison here lies that phones do have special effects. ItÂ’s really awesome to have camera that focuses on your face. This effect is not found in vivo v3 max though the camera has 13 megapixel effects.
