The release of a new smartphone is always an interesting event, which attracts attention and makes you want to know what could the manufacturer do to attract potential buyers. New from Oppo, which is called F7, as one of those smartphones.
First, the new focus on young people, which respects the design features and demanding quality front-facing camera. Both the smartphone at least attracts attention, but all in good time, and to begin to understand what it’s for mobile as a whole.
The potential buyer will be offered a choice of three body colors: “red sun”, “silver lights” and “black star”.
All colors are made so that they were bright and could reflect the characteristics of its owner. For example, the bright red color needs to emphasize the active nature, and silver understated, but with a sense of style. In addition, there are elegant black color.
Glitter back panel immediately draws attention to itself. It looks like she’s made of glass, but all is not so simple. The material selected is polycarbonate, which combines elasticity and good appearance. Thanks to him, the heel and looks so good.
The fingerprint scanner on the back, volume buttons on the left and the Power button on the right. The headphone Jack will not go away, and charging is done via microUSB.
Separately pleased a tray for SIM-cards, which the Oppo is not the first time applies in this form. Its main advantage is the fact that he is not forced to compromise and to sacrifice the second SIM card for the memory card.
The shape of the screen
Another important design element is the screen. In Oppo F7 it as it is now called, frameless. The aspect ratio is 19:9, and in the upper part there are cutouts on the sides, encountered in recent times.
They are placed in service information that is usually “eats” a part of the useful area of the screen. In some applications in this area are functional elements which, for example, when watching a video make screen recording or a screenshot.
Screen brightness is enough to use on the street, and indoors it would be even too much, and it is unlikely that someone will use it on maximum brightness.
The resolution of the screen itself is 2280 by 1080 pixels at a diagonal of 6.23 inches gives a pixel density at 405 dpi. A good indicator for even more high-end smartphones.
Thanks to the big screen is very convenient to use the function works with two applications, which is implemented thanks to the system of ColorOS 5 built on Android 8.1. It allows for example to respond to messages open in a separate window and do not interfere with viewing the video or gameplay.
Of course, relative to the previous version of the proprietary operating system developed and other aspects. For example, the heavily modified UI, including icons and animation, and present such useful features as file safe. Management taken to the next level thanks to the introduction of a system of gestures that will allow to abandon the traditional Android buttons and save some more screen space.
As mentioned earlier, the camera in this smartphone stands out from the competition and it has very interesting features.
Front camera is equipped with CMOS sensor with a resolution of 25 megapixels and an aperture of f/2.0, what is particularly interesting is the fact that this sensor can capture images in HDR, like many other smartphones, and is himself an HDR sensor. To work with a range it allows in software, when done a few pictures and then merge into one, and the hardware, immediately making HDR images.
Software processing is also available, and it works on the basis of artificial intelligence, which is not deprived of the Oppo F7. Artificial intelligence allows you to detect scenes and adjust settings for them. It can even distinguish a cat from a dog, to choose more suitable settings for exposure, but it is more related to the main camera.
The front camera can automatically identify facial features and change the shooting settings by zones, removing shadows under the eyes, making a more saturated lip color and eyes. Moreover, the new smartphone artificial intelligence is able to work with multiple people in the frame, selecting the settings separately for each and separate the area of the face from neck and arms, and men from women. Even with national characteristics and skin color will not have any problems. All this is possible thanks to the SelfieTune 2.0 and its ability to define up to 296 key points in the image.
When the photos have already been made, the artificial intelligence will enable you to organize them into folders according to who is depicted on them but also on events and dates, placing the appropriate tags.
The main camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels, and the pictures of the day on it turn out very saturated and bright. There is a small problem when shooting in the dark, but it’s physics, and it’s not going anywhere, is found in all of the smartphone a little more or less.
But under normal lighting no problems with detail, no color, no distortion. The pictures are more than decent, and manual mode will allow you to experiment with settings and techniques for shooting.
For the performance of the Oppo F7 meets eight-core processor MediaTek Helio P60, in which an integrated module of artificial intelligence.
The processor is equipped with a GPU ARM Mali-G72 MP3 with a frequency of 800 MHz. Thanks to this bundle of issues in games should not be, and even demanding, the representatives of industry will work quite smoothly and without brakes.
Of RAM for all versions Oppo F7 is 4GB, except in colour, “red sun”. For this version, which has 6 GB of RAM.
Internal memory is 64 GB, but in our time that many lack. Especially often this problem is faced by those who bought a big smartphone in order to watch the series in the way and not to refuse a large number of photos. If memory will be not enough, you can use a memory card with up to 256 GB.
The battery capacity will not only allow you to watch TV shows, but also to use other functions for a long time. Its capacity is 3400 mAh, but thanks to a good economy and the possibilities of artificial intelligence for process optimization, energy even during active operation, for a day sure enough.

The system will immediately realize that someone has taken and it is necessary to scan the face. With this feature, when lifting the phone off the table one gets the feeling that he was not blocked. So fast and convenient to everything rasplachivaetsya.
