Oppo F9 Pro Review

Oppo F9 Pro, launched in August 2018, is known for the most stylish waterdrop notch in smartphones till date. Oppo F9 Pro was released along with Oppo F9 but the former owns better features, such as VOOC fast charging, 25 MP selfie camera and 6GB RAM. The highlight of this smartphone is the waterdrop notch and the 6.3 inch display. The detailed Oppo F9 Pro review will help understand if it is the smartphone meant for you!

Here are the key specifications & features for Oppo F9 Pro:

1. Overview

Oppo in its attempts to push the boundaries of smartphone design released Oppo F9 Pro which was a refreshing choice. The unique waterdrop notch, minimal bezels and a breathtaking back make Oppo F9 Pro a smartphone that’s difficult to go unnoticed. This phone is available in three color options: Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue, and Starry Purple.

2. Design

Oppo F9 Pro has a never-tried-before blue-black shimmering rear imprinted with a diamond pattern that looks appealing from every angle. By introducing the notch, the smartphone has an impressive 90.8 percent screen-to-body ratio. The horizontally laid out dual camera setup at the rear comes with a LED flash. We would recommend skipping the phone cover and letting the stunning backside of this smartphone show!

3. Display

Oppo F9 Pro’s 6.3-inch IPS FHD+ LCD display holds a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The screen comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The notch area has been optimized to accommodate earpiece speaker and camera. Oppo F9 Pro has better brightness and colour gradient compared to that of Nokia 7 Plus.

4. Camera

The 16 MP + 2 MP setup captures colour rich photos. The exposure calibration mechanism is a bit faulty but excusable unless the user is a professional photography enthusiast. The Vivid mode in the camera app can be turned on to increase the saturation level.

5. Performance

Oppo F9 Pro is powered by MediaTek’s top-of-the-line Helio P20 SoC chipset. This 64-bit octa-core chipset is based on TSMC’s 16nm process. Opoo F9 Pro though performs poorly when compared to Snapdragon 660-powered phones like the Nokia 7. It works well for browsing social media and taking photos. Popular games like PubG run without any significant lag but more intensive games might face a glitch.

6. Operating System

Oppo F9 Pro runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) with an interface layer of ColorOS 5.2. The app drawer is not present like in its predecessors. The fraud-filter security feature helps keep away annoying phone calls and the fake base station blocking prevents the message inbox from getting spammed. The UI is refined and feature rich.

Oppo F9 Pro features a 64 GB and 6 GB RAM. The smartphone has a dedicated microUSB slot to expand the memory up to 256 GB.

8. Battery

Oppo F9 Pro features a 3,500 mAh Li-Po which provides decent power backup for a phone with such large display. The VOOC fast charging technology competes with One Plus’ Dash charging technology to ensure lesser charging time.

Verdict post Oppo F9 Pro

The VOOC charging feature may ensure fast charging but the poor battery backup unfortunately, negates this feature.
