The Oppo F9 looks quite attractive. Design of F9 is made of gradient glass back and the water drop notch to make the experience pleasant. The UI empowers the phone to look even more wonderful. But its performance leaves a greater impact to the person compared to the older versions. A lot is expected out of its performance and also from the way people view it.

The results are quite detailed and attractive too. This is the best buy for people who are photo maniacs specially the selfies. Fashionable stories can be inked well with this phone.

Today, people look at stylish phones and robust designs together packaged well. Designs are only improving over time and getting better and better. The manufacturing company thinks this is an absolutely amazing buy for the look and price. A lot of time was spent redoing the design and making it more tailor-made. All customers get a newer combination of color and display. It gives a good competition at the redefined price point. This phone faces a lot of competition but then again the competition can be treated well within its designated price range.  An updated version of ColorOS based on Android 8.1 Oreo and super-fast VOOC charging makes it way too demanded.

The notch of this phone water drop like and not a black band on top anymore.  Oppo F9 Pro’s screen takes up 90.8 percent of the body and that’s quite huge. The screen looks immersive with plastic feel like keys. Infact, the slim 8mm body easily finds space for a 3.5mm headphone jack. The design is the most impressive part of this phone and so people are enticed by its look at first. The screen size and the overall panel makes it look too edgy and noticeable. 6.3 inch sized panel looks sturdy and uses an LTPS IPS LCD display which is the usual IPS LCD panels. Screens aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and FullHD+ resolution. Colors show up nice and bright. Broad daylight shots come out very clearly and look excellent.

Furthermore, because of the new notch, it may seem like you’ll get a bigger display, but in reality, the content will be cropped in the shape of the notch from the side. So, if you’re trying to view a video, it won’t be that smooth and will have a waterdrop-shaped disturbance. And if even you want to play games, there are good chances that controls will be snatched too. Generally, this new notch doesn’t help solve real problems. It adds good build to the phone and ensures that it looks nice.

The design and the look are certainly new, but the chipset makes it all the more powerful and impactful. Oppo F9 Pro is the most media liked phone. The same chipset has been utilized in several other budget friendly and top led mobile categories. It’s a 64-bit octa-core chipset based on TSMC’s 16nm process and can escalate upto to 2.3GHz. This is ideal for machine learning tasks and more operational efficacy. Its comparable with Qualcomm mid-ranger chipsets like the Snapdragon 625 and cant be put in place of the Snapdragon 660-powered phones. The outcomes prove the same for us.
