Oppo F15 Summary


In terms of design, the OPPO F15 may not be a far cry from any other phone in the same price segment, but if you take a closer inspection at it, you’ll notice some slight differences the manufacturer has done with OPPO F15.

The OPPO F15 owns a super-slim form, which is very suitable for one-hand use and makes it quite handy to operate. On the top of the device, you’ll see a tiny notch with slim bezel parts while the bottom bezel chin at the bottom is slightly thicker. The OPPO F15 still has a premium look even when it comes with a polycarbonate body.

The handset is available in two color variants, including Unicorn White and Lightning Black.


First things first, the OPPO F15 sports a tiny waterdrop notch on its display screen like what we usually see on several smartphones in the market right now.

Speaking of specs, the handset offers a 6.4-inch AMOLED display along with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection layer. The screen is designed with a 20:9 aspect ratio and 1080x2340 pixels resolution while an in-display fingerprint sensor is located at the bottom chin of the screen.

As for the display performance, the display screen of OPPO F15 is able to produce vibrant colors with high-quality color reproduction and satisfactory sunlight legibility.

The device enables users to adjust several options for the display, such as display size, font size, font type, and screen temperature. What’s more, users can take advantage of the full-screen option and “Night Shield”, which acts as a blue light filter. Once enabled, the feature will limit the amount of blue light the screen emitted and will thus reduce eye strain.


Under the hood, the OPPO F15 houses a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset, which is coupled with ARM Mali G72 GPU and also powers its predecessor OPPO F11. Although the chipset doesn’t show any issue when working, it’s safe to say that OPPO had better equip the device with another chipset other than making no upgrade for the later device.

The lack of more powerful processor appears more glaring when compared to some of the handsets in the lower-midrange price segment, and where the Oppo F15 falls short is the processor.

The base variant of OPPO F15 comes paired with 128GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM. If you need more storage space for your daily needs, you can expand the capacity up to 512GB via a microSD slot.

Considered as a gaming-centric device, the OPPO F15 comes preinstalled with a special feature called Game Boost 2.0, which is claimed to help the phone keep up with a faster refresh rate and improved latency. From that, users can dive into smooth performance when playing mobile games, even heavy ones like Asphalt 9 and PUBG.

The handset is also packed with some third-party apps by default, such as Opera, Amazon, DailyHunt, etc. However, you can uninstall them if they’re just a waste of storage. Similar to other product in OPPO smartphone lineup, OPPO F15 provides Lockscreen magazine that allows users to make wallpaper change when the smartphone gets locked.

When it comes to day-to-day tasks like browsing, calling, texting, and so on, the OPPO F15 still works properly after a long time of use. For instance, both audio and call quality are all satisfactory. We had no complaints about its overall performance, especially the ability to handle random apps and multitasking. In addition to this, the face unlock support appears to be very snappy.


The handset is powered by a 4,000mAh battery. As part of the charging process, it comes along with a 20W fast charger that supports VOOC 3.0 fast charge, which appears to be quite a necessity these days.

According to the manufacturer, it only takes about 30 minutes to charge the battery up to 50% - an impressive figure as compared to other devices.

In other day-to-day activities, the battery can last over a day even when users spend the battery power on watching online videos, browsing the Internet, turning on GPS, and more.


As for cameras, the OPPO F15 thankfully gets not only a quad-camera setup but also a 48MP primary camera, which is regarded as a significant upgrade from the predecessor OPPO F11. In specific, the quad-camera setup houses a 48MP primary lens with f/1.79 aperture, an 8MP wide-angle camera sensor with a 119-degree field of view and an f/2.25 aperture, a 2MP portrait sensor with f/2.4 aperture and finally, a 2MP mono lens with f/2.4 aperture.

By default, the phone captures photos in 12MP resolution and it remains unclear about the real use of 48MP mode in the built-in camera app. However, this may cater to the Night Mode as users can click pretty amazing shots despite that they could look a little bit over-processed.

Speaking of the selfie camera, the Oppo F15 houses a 16MP sensor that will deliver more than satisfactory shots with plenty of details in both sunlight and indoor setup.

The output of indoor shots always seems very detailed in most of the adequate lighting conditions. However, outdoor lighting conditions meanwhile process slightly over-sharpened and slightly punchy shots. The wide-angle sensor is responsible for automatically switching to macro mode when the distance between an object and the device is too close, thus giving out well-detailed images.

The bokeh effect works properly and accurately in all cases. Generally speaking, the strength of this handset lies in many aspects, and these include photography ability in terms of both camera hardware and software.


With all said above, the subtle yet impressive handset from OPPO has been widely considered as one of the best choices in this price segment.
