The Oppo F1s is currently one of the most popular mid-range Android smartphones in Kenya.

Oppo has been on an active path to expand its share in the Kenyan smartphone market and the F1s is one of its star devices in the county.

That said, here is what the Oppo F1s has to offer.



Rear Camera: 13 MP

Secondary Camera: 16 MP

LED Flash: Yes


The camera profile of the Oppo F1s is definitely the highlight of the smartphone. You get a 13 MP camera for general photography and an impressive 16 MP camera for your selfies.

From my experience using the device, the camera does perform very well. However, where it disappoints is on the White Balance where some of the images come out appearing over saturated.


Operating System: Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop)

CPU: 1.5 GHz Octa-core


Internal Memory: 32 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 256 GB


The performance profile of the Oppo F1s is another aspect of the device that makes it a darling among smartphone buyers. A Mediatek MT6755 chipset powers the F1s and this is coupled with 3 GB RAM. This setup is quite impressive and close to the standard you can expect from devices in its price range.

About the software, it’s a bit of a disappointment that the Oppo F1s comes with Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. I had expected at least Android V.6.0 (Marshmallow). However, Oppo custom UI the ColorOS, is fantastic.

Yeah, the OS is pretty much a copy of Apple iOS but hey it works flawlessly. There are no stutters or lags while using the phone and I generally loved the experience.

In addition to this, you get a fingerprint reader just below the display.


Here are some of the stats for the nerds.


Display Size: 5.5 inches

Display Type: IPS LCD

Screen Resolution: 720 x 1280 pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 267 ppi

Screen Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 4


The Oppo F1s has a 5.5 inches IPS LCD display with a 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. The display is a 2.5D one therefore text, images and videos appear to pop up. The display is vibrant and outdoor visibility is quite good.



Dimensions: 154.5 x 76 x 7.4 mm

Weight: 160g

The Oppo F1s has a design concept that is visually to that of the iPhone 6. You get an all metal frame that gives the smartphone a premium look and feel.
