The digicam module, positioned within the high left-hand nook, protrudes barely however fortunately, has rounded edges. The again seems to be good and the digicam module additionally carries a good bit of branding corresponding to “5G”, “AI Digital camera Extremely Evening Imaginative and prescient”. The “fluid black mannequin” I acquired for testing does have a slight grip on it, with some help from the curved edges. The again is product of plastic and isn’t as slippery, however in case you’re feeling nervous about it, Oppo does bundle a clear silicone cowl. Whereas it does enhance the thickness general, there may be much more grip to the cellphone and the sides are barely raised, in order to guard the show from falls. The again of the Oppo F19 Professional+ does have a tendency to gather fingerprint smudges, that are simply eliminated. The mud assortment across the digicam module is a bit trickier to wash although.

There’s a shiny plastic body that tends to gather smudges as properly. The ability/standby button is positioned on the right-hand facet and the amount rockers are positioned on the left-hand facet. Simply above the amount rocker, you may have the twin SIM + microSD card tray. The highest edge simply has the microphone and on the base, you may have the USB Kind C charging and information switch port, surrounded by a speaker grille and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

On the entrance, you may have a 6.43-inch show with a punch-hole digicam positioned on the highest left nook. This can be a departure from the dual-front-facing cameras seen on the Oppo F17 Professional. The earpiece speaker is neatly hid, however one does discover a chin on the base.

General, it’s a nice design, however nothing that can make others cease to take discover. The cellphone doesn’t include any IP certification.

Show

Sporting a 6.4-inch Tremendous AMOLED show with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 safety, the Oppo F19 Professional+’s show has an FHD+ decision and also you get a pixel density of 409 PPI. The Oppo F19 Professional+ skips a excessive refresh fee and sticks to the usual 60 Hz. It appears a bit odd on the worth level it’s promoting at, however in case you haven’t used a better refresh fee show earlier than, you gained’t discover. Barring a slight slowness when scrolling Instagram and Twitter, I didn’t discover the refresh fee to be missing in any means.

I wasn’t too happy with the auto-brightness mode, and saved the brightness at round 60 p.c and up for consolation. Oppo mentions a peak brightness of 800 nits and typical brightness of 430 nits. Due to the Tremendous AMOLED show, the distinction on it’s good, blacks are deep and it’s enjoyable to observe video content material on the show. Video games corresponding to Name of Responsibility Cellular, Alto’s Odyssey look good, however you possibly can’t play these video games at their excessive settings. I didn’t discover a lot to complain about within the show. The shortage of a excessive refresh fee might be a bone of competition for a lot of potential patrons. 

Efficiency and Software program

The Oppo F19 Professional+ makes use of the MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset, which helps 5G. That is the primary smartphone I’m testing with the Dimensity 800U chipset, and if one had been to benchmark it with a Qualcomm half, it’s corresponding to the Snapdragon 750 / 765 collection chipsets. It’s meant for mid-range gadgets, so it’s essential maintain your expectations in verify.

Paired with 8 GB RAM, you don’t get the best benchmark scores. Did I discover the machine to be gradual in real-life utilization? No. Did I come throughout stuttering? Sure, each every so often. However, over the ten days that I used it, I didn’t discover the efficiency missing or any totally different from different comparable smartphones from this section we’ve examined.

One side-effect of getting a mid-range chipset is that in the case of gaming, your graphics settings will likely be locked to medium or excessive. As an illustration, on Name of Responsibility Cellular, the best graphics setting was Medium. Whereas the sport ran easily, it wasn’t at its visible finest. Truthfully, I don’t thoughts the trade-off for this worth, as gaming was {smooth} at these settings and the cellphone didn’t get too sizzling to carry both. On steadiness, that is good.

The cellphone comes with an SoC that helps ‘sensible’ 5G, which helps not simply twin 5G SIMs but in addition straightforward switching between 4G and 5G. After all, that shoulnd’t be a deciding issue to purchase this machine. I’m fairly positive Oppo itself will launch one other improve to the F-series earlier than 5G turns into mainstream in India. It’s an amazing advertising time period for now, however has zero sensible worth in the true world. The cellphone comes with a fingerprint scanner, which is first rate however not the quickest.

Geekbench Multi core

The earpiece speaker is loud and clear and I didn’t face any points with calls. The first speaker does are likely to get blocked if you find yourself gaming. General, the audio system aren’t the loudest. Oppo bundles a good pair of earphones, which greater than make-up for the common audio system. The decision high quality was flawless.

On the software program entrance, it comes with Android 11 with ColorOS 11.1. The UI is kind of responsive and there weren’t any points with botched animations or transitions. The software program has been upgraded since I had examined the Oppo F17 Professional, and it’s good that Oppo has determined to name it ColorOS 11 in step with Android 11 – it’s a lot simpler to maintain monitor of.

ColorOS 11.1 provides some finesse atop the earlier ColorOS 7.2. You now have floating notifications and a fast settings menu which allow you to alter the settings for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Do Not Disturb (any setting which has a downward pointing arrow beside its title). The ‘Personalisation’ characteristic permits you to change your themes, wallpapers, icon kinds, app structure, the best way the fingerprint emblem seems throughout unlocking, fonts and extra. You’ll be able to even make cool, minimal customized wallpapers, and even your individual ringtones. You’ll be able to change the form of the app icons, enhance or lower the variety of apps you possibly can see on the house pages, drop a complete folder into one other and likewise rapidly degroup with the faucet of a button. The “Recreation House” mode permits you to tweak sure settings for notifications, messages, calls and even swap between efficiency modes. There are lots of different options that you’ll uncover, as you proceed utilizing the cellphone.

You additionally get ColorOS’ “Hey Faucet” Cloud service to backup your machine. Oppo has additionally integrated ‘Air Gestures’ for interacting along with your machine; you possibly can wave a hand over the cellphone to select up a name, swipe by way of the gallery and so forth. Truthfully, these are gimmicky and I attempted them to some success, with common responsiveness. I by no means used them in my day-to-day utilization.

Digital camera

The Oppo F19 Professional+ comes with a 48 MP Omnivision OV48B sensor with an f/1.7 aperture; and an 8 MP ultrawide angle digicam with f/2.2 aperture. The opposite two cameras are mere show-pieces with a 2 MP decision for mono and macro taking pictures. On the entrance, you may have a 16 MP digicam with an f/2.4 aperture.

Portrait mode works properly with human faces, however good luck taking pictures a good portrait picture of your pets. Picture: Tech2/Nimish Sawant

Daylight photographs turned out properly, with correct colors. Turning on the AI mode does are likely to oversaturate the first colors, however one’s mileage could fluctuate on that. I didn’t discover a lot color shifting when switching between the first and ultrawide angle digicam, and the purple fringing was well-controlled on the first. The photographs present first rate dynamic vary. Portrait mode works properly with human faces, however good luck taking pictures a good portrait picture of your pets. The sting detection is a little bit of a hit-and-miss. Selfies come out properly, so long as the beautification mode is about to zero (not less than for me).

Click on right here to see the digicam samples:

Oppo F19 Pro+
For the ‘Evening’ mode for nonetheless photographs, Oppo has added three filters to make your night time photographs stand out. These are ‘Cosmopolitan’, ‘Astral’ and ‘Dazzle’, which like most filters, manipulate the colors within the precise scene. ‘Dazzle’, as an illustration, tends to reinforce the hotter colors to make cityscapes underneath synthetic gentle stand out. Even with the ‘Portrait’ mode, you get filters corresponding to “AI Color Portrait” which retains the topic in color with a monochrome background, “Neon Portrait” mode which works finest if there are shiny lights within the background and “Dynamic Bokeh” which is the very best of the three, letting you click on photographs like this. Please observe that Oppo has saved the beautification mode at 40 p.c by default, so alter that in case you don’t like overly-smooth photographs.

Evening photographs come out fairly first rate, so long as you’re utilizing the first digicam. Sure, you’ll discover over-aggressive smoothening in case you pixel-peep, however for sharing on social media platforms, the noise ranges are properly managed. The ultrawide angle digicam is kind of common after sunset, and I’d keep away from utilizing 5x zoom, which simply produces a digitally-zoomed, blotchy mess of a picture. The varied AI filters work properly, offered you don’t apply them to each state of affairs. There’s a slight little bit of delay after you click on a photograph within the ‘Evening’ mode, because the digicam processes it. Nonetheless, I used to be glad that not like the Samsung Galaxy flagships I examined not too long ago, I didn’t have to carry my breath each time I turned on the ‘Evening’ mode. I suppose a 48 MP sensor producing 12 MP pixel binned pictures helps there. Selfies taken in low gentle usually are not the very best, as noise is noticeable even with out pixel-peeping.

Coming to the video taking pictures modes, the Oppo F19 Professional+ can shoot as much as 4K at 30 fps. Use this mode provided that you’ll have your cellphone regular, as strolling and taking pictures results in jerky footage. If you activate the “Extremely Regular” choice, the decision is restricted to 1080p/30fps. Whilst you get comparatively regular footage, you additionally discover noise creeping in. Capturing after sundown results in noisy footage general, particularly when taking pictures cityscapes. The “AI Evening Portrait” mode was spectacular, and it does have a tendency to extend the general brightness on the face. Nonetheless, noise additionally turns into noticeable when taking pictures with this mode. On the entire, it’s a good tradeoff.

You get the twin video, which is a good choice for vloggers and allows you to shoot with the entrance and rear digicam on the similar time, with three structure choices. You’ll be able to swap between the traditional and zoom modes on the rear digicam, however do observe that it will likely be digital zoom.

Battery life

The Oppo F19 Professional+ homes a 4,310 mAh battery, which is a good configuration for a cellphone that’s so slim. And given the truth that Oppo bundles a 50 W “Flash Charger” within the field, signifies that you actually don’t have to fret a lot about charging occasions – they’re wicked-fast. I used to be capable of cost my cellphone from 0-100% inside 55 minutes. Simply 25 minutes of charging took it from 0-50 p.c. Hell, even quarter-hour of charging will provide you with sufficient battery to final you for 5 hours.

PC Mark for Android delivered a rating of 13 hours 7 minutes. In real-world utilization, I may simply get slightly over a day of normal utilization. Enjoying heavy video games corresponding to Name of Responsibility Cellular does take a toll on the battery life. 30 minutes of gaming with the best settings (locked to Medium) drains the battery by 12-15 p.c. However like I mentioned earlier than, even when the battery drains inside a day, all it’s a must to do is plug within the cellphone to cost and within the time it takes you to make espresso and luxuriate in it, you’ll have greater than sufficient cost to final you for the following few hours. I didn’t discover the cellphone get unbearably sizzling whereas charging. For many who plan to cost the cellphone in a single day – don’t. Sure, Oppo does provide the ‘Optimised night time charging’ which spreads out the charging pace to keep away from overcharging, but it surely’s finest to cost it solely when wanted relatively than for a number of hours.

Verdict and Worth in India

I wasn’t utterly bought on the Oppo F17 Professional when it had come out. It seemed nice, however there have been too many compromises. The Oppo F19 Professional+ definitely corrects a number of these compromises and likewise presents attention-grabbing digicam options. Positive, low gentle images and videography isn’t the F19 Professional+’s strongest go well with, however the output is usable. The show, on a regular basis efficiency, battery life on the F19 Professional+ are first rate, however on the asking worth of Rs 25,990, this isn’t a simple cellphone to advocate.

Competitors lingers within the type of the Vivo V20 Professional which excelled in lots of extra departments; the not-so-old OnePlus Nord (Evaluation) can also be an ready cellphone. Then one additionally has to think about upcoming gadgets such because the Poco F3/Redmi K40 and Realme 8 Professional. Until you need to purchase the Oppo F19 Professional+ straight away, I’d recommend ready for the brand new launches. If you happen to already personal an Oppo F17 Professional, you possibly can skip the F19 Professional+.
