oppo F15 phone price in india, camera and fast charging.

Oppo F15 review price in india of Rs 19,990.The oppo F15 gets a 48-megapixel quad-camera similar to the Realme 5S and a 20W VOOC 3.0 fast-charging system.

The Oppo F15 is a slight deviation from the usual F-series phones, where the design is more important than the performance of the front camera. At Rs 19,990, trying hard to make a point for yourself.

BBK Electronics has been bombarding the Indian smartphone market with a new cell phone every few weeks for several years now. The mass brands Oppo, Vivo and Realme are on their feet to develop new models that offer the latest features at prices that Xiaomi and Samsung undercut in the respective price segments. In 2020 it seems no different and Oppo has a new cell phone for consumers who want to spend 20,000 rupees on a new cell phone.

This new phone is part of the popular F series from Oppo and this time it is all about style and design. It’s called Oppo F15 and there is only one variant in India that you can buy for 19,990 rupees. Though Oppo’s aggressive marketing campaign positions it as a premium phone, you are branding the F-series and it’s essentially the Oppo A91 from China. Therefore, you get all the main functions of Oppo for 2019 in a phone from 2020 at a great price.

The F15 appeals to photos, but on paper it brings along old features from 2019 and requires a premium for it. So is it a good idea to make the Oppo F15? You have to wait for our full review, but you can read our first impressions of the device.

Oppo f15 mobile design and features.

Oppo eliminates the difference between Oppo and Realme. This oppo mobile phone and Realme share a common parts container for their phones. Therefore, the newer phones of these two brands appear to be identical in many ways. The F15 doesn’t try to break out of this shape, and it feels like one of the realme phones under 15,000 rupees. Place the Realme X2, Realme 5 Pro and Oppo F15 together and you could get confused. The placement of the camera modules, the curved edges and the color gradients – these are unmistakable realms in many ways.

However, Realme and Oppo have their own fan base based on designs, and the Oppo F15 won’t disappoint. I got my hands on the black version and it looks more like shiny dark blue with stripes of reflective gradient patterns that dance across the entire rear from different angles. The longer quad camera module looks great, while the LED flash corresponds to modern design trends. The panel on the back is made of plastic and not glass. A case would therefore help prevent scratches.

The frame is also made of glossy plastic and has a USB-C connector (Oppo fans have to dance with great pleasure to remove the micro-USB connector) and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The keys also feel tactile.

Due to the 20: 9 aspect ratio of the display, the F15 is narrower than other phones. The display has the same old design with a thick chin, but since it’s an AMOLED panel, the notch is a bit smaller.

Overall, I think the Oppo F15 looks good and holds well in the hand. However, some of the cheaper Realme phones offer better design and premium glass quality.

Features: Oppo could have done better

The Oppo F15 promises a lot on paper, but at a time when there are realms, the F15 seems overpriced for what it offers. Regardless of whether it is the technical data or the cameras, the F15 is under-equipped in comparison to other Realme devices.

Let’s start with the display on which Oppo did a good job. The F15 gets a 6.4-inch display with an AMOLED panel, similar to Realme phones. This is a good display, and since it’s an AMOLED panel, you can see bold colors and higher contrasts. Because of my limited time with the F15, the display seems to be good for content consumption, especially for watching YouTube videos.

Oppo f15 RAM and ROM.

Oppo was proud of the F15’s quick performance with the large numbers that it flaunts in the Specifications section. You get 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage as standard – sounds good. What doesn’t sound good is the older MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. The Helio P70 is a mid-range chipset from last year and was used in the F11 Pro. For a phone that costs 19,990 rupees, Oppo could have offered a more powerful Helio G-series chip to ensure faster performance. In my limited time with the F15, the phone felt quick with the usual user interface navigation, but a short session of PUBG showed the shortcomings of the older P70 chip. You will also get an older ColorOS 6 with Android 9 on board – this is not acceptable for an expensive phone in 2020.

Oppo uses a similar setup for the rear view cameras that we saw recently on the much cheaper Realme 5S. As standard, you get a 48-megapixel main camera as well as an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and two 2-megapixel cameras for macro and depth data. A short session with the cameras showed decent photography performance with the classic “AI Enhanced” attacks on human subjects. The same goes for the 16 megapixel selfie camera – it’s about artificially enhancing your look.
Where the F15 seems to come loose is the battery area. You get a 4000 mAh battery to power things, and you can expect a full day’s backup under normal usage scenarios. The 20W quick charging system is also a nice addition.

Oppo F15 first impressions.

At first glance, the Oppo F15 is an interesting phone in the Sub-Rs 20,000 segment. It looks good with the slim profile and the subtle but noble gradients. The AMOLED display also seems great. However, the rest of the package falls behind phones of other sister brand phones. The Realme X2 with 16,999 rupees is a much more convincing business with a powerful chipset, better cameras and an extremely fast charging system.

That said, the Oppo F15 has yet to prove itself to us, so you should stay tuned for our full review.
