5G smartphones are a dime a dozen as of late in India, even within the worth phase. In some ways, the OnePlus Nord may be credited with paving the way in which for inexpensive 5G smartphones in India. Manufacturers are continually introducing 5G fashions throughout their portfolios, and some months in the past, Oppo’s F sequence received its first 5G providing within the type of the Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G.
Priced at Rs. 25,990, the F19 Pro+ 5G may be seen as a direct competitor to the OnePlus Nord, however it additionally has competitors from decrease priced choices such because the Realme X7 5G, Xiaomi Mi 10i, and the Moto G 5G. The huge promoting factors of the Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G are its low weight, very fast charging, and AI digicam options. Are these sufficient to make it a compelling product? It’s time to seek out out.
Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G design
Oppo has actually nailed the slim kind issue and weight of the F19 Pro+ 5G. At simply 173g and seven.8mm thick, it is exhausting to imagine this telephone really has a battery and different parts inside. The end is fairly good too. The plastic body has a shiny chrome end, whereas the plastic again has a frosted matte end. The silver unit that I had for this overview did entice fingerprints however these weren’t simply seen.
The structure of the ports and buttons feels ergonomic, and Oppo has even managed to suit a headphone jack on the F19 Pro+ 5G. The triple-slot tray permits you to use two Nano-SIMs and a microSD card. The show is a big 6.4-inch AMOLED panel with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for scratch safety. The show appears sharp, colors are punchy, and the in-display fingerprint sensor is dependable. Sadly, it solely helps a 60Hz refresh fee and nothing increased, which might have been good to have at this value.
In the field, you may discover the everyday contents equivalent to a case, USB cable, headset, and charger. The charger really helps Oppo’s 65W SuperVOOC commonplace, however the Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G costs at a most of 50W. This 65W charger can’t be used to quick cost telephones that do not assist SuperVOOC charging and even units equivalent to laptops.
Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G specs and software program
Oppo has gone with a reasonably standard finances 5G SoC from MediaTek, the Dimensity 800U. According to Oppo’s web site, the F19 Pro+ 5G helps 4 5G bands, which is not lots, however remains to be higher than another dearer Android telephones. Only one configuration is on the market in India, which has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of inside storage. The Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G additionally helps the same old sensors and satellite tv for pc navigation methods, plus dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.1, and FM radio.
The Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G runs on ColorOS 11.1, primarily based on Android 11. My unit just lately acquired a software program replace which claimed to have improved system efficiency and stability, and it additionally added the April Android safety patch. ColorOS is extremely feature-rich however this telephone additionally comes with quite a lot of bloatware which did a terrific job of at all times making certain I had undesirable notifications. The Theme Store and Browser are infamous for this. You can restrict these alerts by twiddling with the settings however these apps cannot be uninstalled.
Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G efficiency and battery life
The efficiency of the Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G was predictably good through the overview interval. This Dimensity SoC is one thing we have seen earlier than in quite a few telephones and its efficiency is fairly strong for the value. Benchmark scores weren’t too shabby, and the F19 Pro+ 5G scored 3,43,176 factors in AnTuTu. Multitasking was usually snappy however the telephone lacked the smoothness and fluidity that you’d expertise with a excessive refresh fee show. I feel Oppo ought to have included it, at the least on this ‘plus’ mannequin.
I did not face any points relating to heating both. The Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G ran pretty cool for probably the most half, and solely received a bit heat whereas gaming. Speaking of which, video games ran very properly on this telephone. The visuals appeared nice due to the intense and punchy colors of the OLED show, and the underside speaker received decently loud for an fulfilling expertise. There are loads of shortcuts and tweaks that can be utilized whereas taking part in through the Game Space app.
Battery life was greater than passable in my expertise. The Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G has a 4,310mAh battery, and it lasted 19 hours and 42 minutes in our HD video loop check, which is surprisingly good for such a capability. With common gaming, digicam, and social app utilization, I used to be simply averaging a few day and a half on a single cost. The battery costs in a short time too, finishing a zero to 100 p.c top-up in lower than 50 minutes.
Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G cameras
I felt the cameras on the Oppo F17 Pro, this telephone’s predecessor, had been a bit underwhelming, and the F19 Pro+ 5G does not appear to have made any main upgrades on this space. We have a foremost 48-megapixel digicam, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide digicam, and two token 2-megapixel cameras for macros and a black-and-white filter. For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel digicam within the show’s hole-punch cutout.
Since video is likely one of the huge promoting factors of this telephone, let’s cowl that first. The Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G has an ‘AI Highlight Video’ toggle button within the viewfinder. With this on, the digicam app will mechanically simulate HDR in video or enhance the publicity when taking pictures at evening, which is indicated by a change within the AI icon. Both these options do work however the ensuing video high quality is strictly common even when taking pictures in daylight.
Coming to plain movies, the Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G can report at as much as 4K 30fps, however with out stabilisation.Video shot through the day is nearly satisfactory, however it will get grainy and fairly dangerous at evening. Other video modes embody dual-view for recording a mixed stream from the rear and selfie cameras. Subject monitoring can also be out there, which works properly offered your topic does not drop out of the body whereas taking pictures.
Daytime panorama pictures lack readability and element, particularly if the digicam has to use HDR aggressively, like when taking pictures on a sunny day. The ultra-wide digicam captures weaker particulars than the primary one, however it’s helpful if you wish to get extra of any scene in a single shot. The macro digicam just isn’t nice, however that was anticipated given the dimensions of the sensor. Regular close-up photographs really look good, given the correct quantity of sunshine. At evening, panorama stills undergo from weak textures and poor particulars. Things enhance barely with Night mode, however not by a lot.
Selfies are inclined to look unnaturally processed with the default settings. Skin tones and textures enhance a bit as soon as you choose the ‘Natural’ possibility within the magnificence filter. HDR is dealt with fairly poorly and if you happen to occur to make use of Portrait mode for a selfie in a backlit body, the background tends to get blown out. Noise is dealt with properly when taking pictures selfies indoors and below good mild, however pores and skin tones do not at all times look nice.
Overall, the digicam efficiency of the Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G could be very underwhelming and this isn’t one thing I anticipated from a telephone costing practically Rs. 26,000.
The Oppo F19 Pro+ 5G just isn’t the improve to the F17 Pro that I used to be anticipating. Its enhancements are higher battery life, faster charging, and a quicker 5G SoC, however that is in regards to the extent of it. The slim design, low weight, AMOLED show, and cameras are just about the identical as what its predecessor supplied. In reality, I’d argue that the cameras have dropped a notch or two in high quality, which is a disgrace. Oppo appears to be focusing extra on its Reno sequence now, and within the cut price, hasn’t actually achieved sufficient with the F19 Pro+ 5G to justify its value.
I’d say the OnePlus Nord remains to be the stronger contender between the 2, and I’d advocate it over the F19 Pro+ 5G. If you wish to save a bit, then telephones such because the Xiaomi Mi 10i supply higher efficiency and options for a lot much less. There’s additionally Realme’s X7 5G which presents very comparable options, bodily dimensions, and specs because the F19 Pro+ 5G, however with higher cameras and a extra engaging price ticket.
