What kind of products do OPPO manufacture that allowed them to reach the top spots in the market today? We will take a look at the latest and greatest OPPO R9s Plus flagship, to learn more about what the brand has got in place for the consumers.
To get things started, let’s take a look at the phone’s general design. OPPO did not go with anything too fancy. On the first look, OPPO R9s Plus has a rather typical Android smartphone design. However, the key differences lie in the small details.
Firstly, this smartphone has extremely thin side bezels. Of course, with thin bezels and higher screen to body ratio, we can enjoy a great viewing experience on without having a phone that is too big. The OPPO R9s Plus has a FullHD 1920 x 1080 6 inch display, but it doesn’t feel like a huge phablet.
One of the distinct feature of the OPPO R9s Plus is its fingerprint sensor. The R9s Plus has a solid-state fingerprint reader that is built right into its home button. This clever positioning of the fingerprint reader allows an extremely natural way of securely unlocking the smartphone. Moreover, OPPO has even applied a hydrophobic membrane on top of this sensor, so that you can still unlock your phone easily even when you have just visited the washroom.
The OPPO R9s Plus differentiates itself from any other smartphones out in the market with the state-of-the-art smartphone camera. This flagship smartphone from OPPO is equipped with the all-new Sony IMX398 image sensor that is developed exclusively for OPPO. It is the only smartphone in the market right now that features this sensor. This brings about a extra-wide F1.7 aperture right into the compact form of a smartphone. This powerful sensor is also said to allow the whole camera to perform extremely well in low light scenarios. Moreover, with Optical Image Stabilization, we are really expecting a lot from the camera from this smartphone. Here are some sample images up against the Xiaomi Mi5s, which features the IMX378 sensor.

Generally, the OPPO R9s Plus gave stunning images. As compared to Xiaomi Mi5s, R9s Plus was able to reproduce images which are richer in colours in both day and night shoots. We can safely say that images from the R9s Plus always looks better than those from the Xiaomi Mi5s. However, it seems that images captured from the Mi5s still had more details. This is apparent with the photo that is captured in the day. We can see a lot more details of the leaves on the trees on photo from Mi5s when zoomed in.
Nonetheless, the OPPO R9s Plus still takes some of the best looking and high quality photographs.
The OPPO R9s Plus is equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 Octa Core processor. This is coupled with 6GB of RAM for superior multi-tasking performance on a smartphone. This is probably the first time that I have seen a smartphone installed with 6GB of RAM.
In terms of network performance, we managed to get download and upload speeds beyond 100Mbps on both mobile network(left) and Wi-Fi(right) tests.
If you are looking for a smartphone that takes great photos and have a very long battery life, the OPPO R9s Plus is the smartphone to look out for.
