The Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro are yet another feature-packed releases with well thought out specifications. From the large FHD+ screen that delivers great visual to the cameras delivering aesthetic photos. The storage is decent and large expandability option is always welcome. Lastly, the moderately sized battery should keep you going through most of the day, and the included VOOC quick charger means you won’t have to wait long to get this device charged.
Overall, for the price, Oppo is offering a lot like a good design with awesome waterdrop notch, great cameras, good battery but it seems lacking only in one department that is its processor which is brain of smartphone. According to us, MediaTek Helio P60 at Rs.20,000 is not a good deal. MediaTek Helio P60 is available with Realme 1 which is half of the price of Oppo F9.
At this price point, Honor Play offers a great deal.
