The 20-25K price segment when choosing a smartphone is definitely difficult. The price segment is saturated and has a lot to offer. However, the OPPO F21s Pro definitely stands out. OPPO is one of the brands which places an emphasis on the style factor of a design and that is where this device excels. But that’s not all as it also has a strong spec sheet backing it with a solid camera setup! Let’s see what the OPPO F21s Pro has to offer:
When buying a phone in the 20-25K segments, what you expect is a vibrant AMOLED display with a high refresh rate. This is exactly what you get here. The OPPO F21s Pro comes with a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED punch-hole display with 2400x1080P resolution. During my extensive testing of the device, watching Netflix/YouTube videos was pleasing to the eyes as the punchy display produced some great colors! You also get an under-display fingerprint sensor here which is accurate and fast.
This is where the device has its cake and eats it too! For my review, I was handed the ‘Dawnlight Gold’ variant of the F21s Pro and it was a treat to look at. With the dawnlight gold edition, it is difficult to make out what color is the back panel exactly as it shimmers and changes colors like a chameleon. People not looking for an eye-catching device can opt for a much more serious-looking ‘Starlight Black’ variant which has a classy black finish. OPPO is known to make stylish devices and this one is on par with the brand’s history.
The OPPO F21s Pro comes with a triple-camera setup featuring a 64MP rear camera coupled with a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP Microscopic lens. Now, that’s new! We’re used to a triple camera setup featuring an ultra-wide camera to click wider images but OPPO decided to go the opposite route to utilize the lens to click detailed microscopic images. The microscopic lens is a throwback to school days when you’d look down the microscope in the biology lab! The microscopic lens offers 15X and 30X magnification capabilities. But that is not all as it also features a stunning Sony IMX709 32MP selfie sensor which clicks some crisp photos. Another interesting feature here is the Orbit Light at the back of the camera module which acts like a notification light. The Orbit Light looks beautiful when lit!
Under the hood, you get Qualcomm’s trusted and powerful Snapdragon 680. The processor has proved its might in many midrange devices in the past and it is surely integrated well here! The device features a large 4500mAh battery here with 33W SUPERVOOC fast charging. The F21s Pro comes with 8GB RAM with expansion up to 5GB via virtual RAM. It features ample storage with 128GB onboard which can be extended via microSD Card up to 1TB.
The OPPO F21s Pro is a solid device that packs a punch at a decent price of Rs 22,999. The device scores good marks with its display and long battery life. An extra point for its unique design! While am not a fan of the bloatware apps present on the device, they can prove helpful to some. Overall, this is a decent device at a decent price point. This could be the device you go for this festive design!
