Snapping with the Selfie Expert

The second weekend of January became a perfect opportunity for us to see the dynamism of Cebu in person and capture it through photos with the award-winning OPPO F1s as the Queen City of the South celebrated the much-awaited annual Sinulog-Santo Niño Festival. A cultural and religious event, Sinulog honors Señor Santo Niño or the Child Jesus, which image was given as a baptismal gift to Queen Juana of Cebu by the Portuguese conquistador Ferdinand Magellan in 1521. The name Sinulog refers to the river-like movement of the dance performed during the festivities.

Much has been said about the F1s, but let’s still look back at some of the reasons why this smartphone can become a good travelling companion in a place like Cebu. First, it is 4G LTE-ready, has Wi-Fi and GPS, and comes with a responsive Android-based ColorOS user interface that looks good on the phone’s 5.5-inch HD display, backed by a 64-bit MT6750 octa-core processor coupled with 3GB RAM. The combination of a fast software and powerful hardware results in fluid user experience which is a must in several occasions like killing time while waiting at the airport or being stuck in a heavy traffic, searching for points of interest and food destinations in Cebu, and accessing the map to identify your location and know how to go to a particular place.

Second, as app accessing, Internet browsing, and picture taking consume energy, it is good to know that the F1s comes with an integrated 3075mAh battery that provides stamina long enough for a morning-to-evening usage.

The last but not the least, on the imaging front, the F1s is equipped with a good pair of cameras: a 13-megapixel main camera with f/2.2 aperture on the back and a 16-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture on the front. While the better specification set of the front camera indicates that it is a phone primarily meant for taking selfies (hence, the Selfie Expert title), it doesn’t necessarily mean that it can’t take good photos and HD videos with its main camera. The F1s delivered well-detailed images with adequate amount of sharpness and color saturation, whether the subject is connected with Sinulog or not. Plus, you don’t have to worry about running out of storage as you take images, because the F1s has ample 32GB storage.
