I am a selfie addict. There I said it and I am not ashamed to admit it. I absolutely love it. Selfies are everywhere and unless you have been living under a rock you have definitely taken a selfie at some point in your life. I don’t know why it has such a bad rep and to be honest I am sure most of us love taking selfies (right?). We get to capture all our awesome moments and it is soo much fun!
The one thing that a self proclaimed selfie queen needs is a good phone with a great front camera. I came across the ad for OPPO F1s in one of my favourite magazines and have been secretly wanting the phone for a while now. Since Diwali is around the corner I have been slyly hinting to everybody I know that I really, really want the phone.
My sister, who is officially the *best sister ever*, picked up on my not so subtle hints and got me the the best Diwali gift ever! She had wrapped the box and stuck a little note on top that read - ‘the selfie-expert phone for the cutest selfie-expert’ (told you she is the best!). The phone came with a gold back panel and white front panel - it looked so pretty! After saying bye bye to my old phone, I was dying to start using my new one!
As predicted the first thing I tried out was the camera. The back camera looked good but my main concern was the front camera (DUH!). I had read so much about the 16MP front camera and how it took really clear pictures. Turns out the camera is pretty great, it had a little bit of trouble shooting in low light - but apart from that it was totally worth the hype. I also tried out the Beautify Feature which is supposed to give you flawless, glowing skin. The feature has seven levels - the seventh one looked a bit too smooth but the rest actually looked good. I obviously made the most of the feature, clicked a million selfies and sent it to all my friends.
I couldn’t wait to show everyone in office my shiny new phone! I even convinced them all to take a selfie with me (not that it took much convincing - we are all big selfie fans). We all posed for the first shot and realised that the camera came with a selfie panorama feature. If you have ever had issues with fitting a large number of people into one frame, then this feature is perfect for you.
I also love the screen size, it’s actually a good size for texting and editing my pictures. When it comes to storage on my phone I am always super greedy. Even though the OPPO F1s comes with 32GB memory, which is pretty great - I still wish I could have had more. My pictures take up a ton of space guys!. But the great thing about the phone is that it has a decent battery life. Any phone that can survive my constant need to take pictures and share on social media is a winner in my eyes!
So far my new phone and I are doing great, it is definitely my selfie-bestie and I can’t thank my sister enough! Although, now I have no clue how I will ever trump her gift! I will really need to up my gifting game next year.
