Oppo F1 Unboxing
The box that the Oppo F1 comes in is a White Rectangular box, with a sliding cover on the outside. Right after you slide that cover, you’ll find a plain white box, with just Oppo written on the top.
On the sliding cover for the box, you’ll find the Oppo F1, Selfie Expert branding on the front and on the back, you’ll find the basic specifications of the phone. Other than that, you’ll just find the information about the manufacturing of this specific unit along with the price.
On opening the box, you’re greeted with the phone sitting on the top itself, with a separate compartment for all the accessories and the literature.

Oppo F1 Gaming Performance
You can even get away with some intensive 3D games such as Dead Trigger 2 with ease, we played it for 20 minutes at high graphic details and it was handling it very well. After a point of time, it strarted showing minor framedrops but it was not something that will affect the gameplay. We also tried Asphalt 8, we played it with medium graphic setting as the high graphic settings were freezed. The gameplay was smooth and it was easily handling this game as well. It took a little longer than usual to load the stages but it was still nothing abnormal.
Note- The gaming tests are done under atmospheric temperature of 18 Degree Celsius.

Oppo F1 did heat up a bit around the camera but when we recorded the temperature, it did not exceeded 40 degree celsius at any point of time.
Oppo F1 Performance and Benchmark Scores
The Oppo F1 is powered by a 1.7GHz Octa-core Snapdragon 616 processor. This is coupled with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. The specs on paper do look nice, and the device should give some great results for the benchmarks.
Here is a table showing the various benchmark scores that the device got. We used Antutu Benchmark, Quadrant Standard, Geekbench 3 and Nenamark 2 for testing the device.
