Oppo F7 | 4 GB + 64 GB | Silver
The Oppo F7 doesn’t look too premium or extremely cheap, it falls somewhere in between which is perfectly fine since it’s a mid-range phone. It hits the sweet spot with respect to weight. It’s not heavy enough to weigh you down but not so light that it doesn’t feel durable.
Where the phone falters is that it chose to use plastic with a glossy layer to make it shine like glass. I understand the appeal since most of the flagship phones have a glass back, but it attracts fingerprints like bees to honey.
You can polish the phone all you want but it’s only going to be truly clean if it isn’t touched.
While reviewing the phone, I’m pretty sure I spent more time cleaning it than actually using it.
The device doesn’t scratch too easily despite being thrown in with keys and what not, but it’s not impervious to external forces. Apparently keys aren’t tough enough but crumbs on the table scratch the screen if you pull it off the table rather than pick it up. This applies to the screen as well as the back of the phone. As far as I’m concerned, they’re both equally vulnerable.
The primary camera and the fingerprint sensor are located around the back with a MicroUSB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom.
