Before we go any further, let us go through the specifications of the phone.
Display: 6.0-inch, 2160 x 1080p
SoC: MediaTek Helio P23
RAM: 4GB / 6GB
Storage: 32GB / 64GB
Front Camera: 20MP, f/2.0
Rear Camera: 16MP, f/1.8
OS: Android 7.1.2
The 20 MP front-facing camera is definitely one of the main reasons the F5 would grab your attention. To help you snap great selfies, OPPO has gone beyond the call of duty and has packed powerful Artificial Intelligence and complex algorithms into the device.
So how does the AI algorithm work to help you click really good selfies? The front camera maps more than 200 positioning spots on your face and feeds this enormous dataset into intricate algorithms coded to enhance facial features like nose, cheekbones, jawline and eyes to create a more natural refined selfie.
This new AI approach also allows the Oppo F5 to click Bokeh images with just one camera. The phone also intelligently put faces in the frame in focus, even if you are not clicking a Bokeh selfie.
The 16MP rear camera is equally impressive and uses a large f/1.8 aperture lens. This means that the phone should take good images during low light conditions.
Besides the front facing camera, the other important feature is the display. This is OPPO’s first phone to feature an FHD+ display. Surrounded by thin bezels, this makes the phone look very attractive and premium.
The phone's beauty is further enhanced by the unibody design that’s just 7.5mm thick and 76mm wide. This means, that even with a 6-inch display, it can be easily used with one hand to a reasonable degree.
Running this is the phone is the all new 16nm MediaTek Helio P23 SoC. This powerful octa-core SoC is combined with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage on the base model. But, you can upgrade that to a 6GB and 64GB internal storage variant under a reasonable price point.
The latest Android 7.1 nougat is layered under the familiar ColorOS 3.2, bringing in new innovative features like O-share, facial unlock, split view and more.
At the back, you have the fingerprint scanner at a very convenient position, which is quite fast as well.
