You can definitely go for the handsets manufactured by Oppo as it is now counted among one of the better value for money brands in India. These days the brand is coming up with some impressive devices and things look sunny. Oppo is coming up with smartphones that have some really good cameras as reported by users in their reviews as well as professional reviewers. However, most budget and mid-range handsets do not fetch much resale value, which is a drawback. Therefore, if you like to have a decent handset and do not care about the resale value and stuff like that, you can go for the Oppo handset. Oppo is popular more for its selfie-camera smartphones. The camera output is crisp and bright and takes care of the surrounding light hence delivers good images. There are nifty features in phone line Oppo F1s that you'd love like Palm Shutter - that activates the automatic selfie countdown the moment you open your palm in front of the camera. Also, there is Voice Shot - just say Cheese in front the camera to activate it and take automatic snap with counter.
Oppo has designed the ColorOS to come up with features that are not yet added to the Stock Android operating system. Therefore, while the handset might be running on a version of Android operating system at its core, Oppo has included additional features with its ColorOS. Some highlights of ColorOS is fast app installation, fast app launching, deep sleep mode when screen is off to save battery and enhanced privacy protection. It indeed is a good experience to use an interface that has an eye pleasing graphics and enhances the whole way in which the handset performs.
It would be better if you go with Xiaomi handset as it has been delivering impressive devices consistently ever since the brand made its debut in India. And since it is one of the most popular brand in India, the after sales service as well as the resale value of the device is much better. One of the advantage of going with Xiaomi is that the brand launches devices that are overall performer meaning they all come with good processor, build quality, camera and storage capacity. Take Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 for example, the handset packs a 16 Megapixels camera, Snapdragon Hexa Core Processor, metal build and 3 GB RAM accompanying the processor. Oppo on the other hand, manufactures handsets that have one USP and tries to adjust the cost in other aspects, which means a device with great camera might lack a little on the performance front. But if you are clear about what you want from the handset and the main highlight of the Oppo device takes care of it, you can consider it.
The after sales service of the brand, to say the least, if not one of its strong point at this junction. In case you have bought an Oppo device and face some issues with the same, getting it covered and repaired under warranty might turn out to be a bit of hassle. Oppo was all set to start manufacturing its devices in India but it seems to have been delayed. However, as and when the manufacturing begins in India, Oppo might give stiff competition to its Chinese counterparts. Till then, if you are concerned about the after sales, you should be considering established brands like Xiaomi and Samsung.
Depending on your budget, you can go ahead and decide what features you would like to have in your device and which you can give a miss. You can decide whether you would want a camera-centric handset, in which case Oppo has some good devices, or a performance oriented device. Therefore, the first step is to choose features that you want and how much you are willing to spend. To elaborate, if you are someone who depends upon the smartphone to capture special moments, Oppo has devices like F1 and F1S with 16 Megapixels front camera. For gaming and performance, there is Oppo F1 plus that comes with 4GB of RAM and an Octa-core processor that has been clocked at an impressive 2 GHz clock speed. However, F series of handsets are the best that is being offered by the brand as of now.
