For the fashionistas, we know this will definitely suit your style as it has a glossy back that is very eye catching and represents “swag”.

3. Display

The display is 6.23 inches, has super full screen, full HD resolution (1080*2280) which makes it fun when running apps as you enjoy the full view since it has an aspect ratio of 19:9.

4. Performance, Storage and Software

It runs on Android v8.1 Oreo with a CPU of Octa Core. It runs on a spectactular 6GB RAM and has a massive storage capacity of 64GB ROM. If you feel like, you can expand the memory with the dedicated memory card slot that accommodates upto 256GB.

The processor is a kicker, powered by Media Tek Helio P60.

5. Speedy Facial Unlock

Now this is also a cool feature as this means you shall keep out phone snoopers at bay since it unlocks using your unique facial features. All you need is to look into the screen and boom the screen securely opens in a flash.

It also has a finger print sensor which unlocks the phone even faster.

6. Protection

The screen is protected by Gorilla glass 5 which means that it is 3 times scratch resistant as compared to it’s predecessors. It raises the bar for protection against drops higher than ever and surviving 1.6m drops onto rough surfaces making it more strong and durable.

7. Connectivity

The OPPO F7 has Bluetooth, Wi-fi, GPS, Radio and USB ports, Headphone Jack. You can as well browse, read mails, edit photos/videos.

8. Battery

It has a non-removable battery of 3400mAh. Unfortunately, the downside is that it takes too long to fully charge therefore if you are a heavy user, this can come as a disappointment as you will have to use a power bank more often than not.


All in all it is a beautifully designed phone sure to turn heads as it has nice viewing experience especially for gamers or youtube / music lovers as it is fast and the quality of picture and sound is top notch, accurate colours, good viewing angles and vibrant as well for outdoors.

Apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, LinkedIn, Songamusic, Spotify, Google Play Music runs faster and it makes it enjoyable to use the phone since it makes it smooth and easy to navigate.

I would personally recommend this phone to all the young’ins or young at heart as the overall experience is awesome.

It’s World Selfie Day fam so c’mon stand out from the crowd with this cool phone. The OPPO F7 has a reasonable retail price of sh. 36,000/= and available at your nearest phone place or order online from Jumia.

Trust me you will thank me later!!
