The Best Selling Smartphone in the Philippines in Q4 2016 was The OPPO F1s

Chinese handset maker OPPO continues to dominate the local smartphone scene in the Philippines -- proving that they have figured out how to capture the interest and fancy of Pinoy mobile consumers.

In fact, based on data gathered by respected research company GfK in Q4 2016, the OPPO F1s accounted for 7.1 and 6.4 percent of total smartphone units sold in November and December 2016, respectively, across all price segments.

Other OPPO releases also made it to the top ten list including the OPPO Neo 7 at the fourth spot and the OPPO A37 at the tenth spot.

The OPPO F1s was so successful that the company even launched an improved version of this model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

According to Mr. Stephen Cheng - Brand Marketing Manager of OPPO Philippines, "We have always pushed the brand further to create [products] that consumers can trust. With the success of the OPPO F1s, we are confident that we have come up with a cameraphone that addresses the need for better-looking selfies as well as overall smartphone performance."


In July 2016, OPPO became the 2nd best-selling smartphone brand in the Philippines largely due to the massive market success of the OPPO F1s. This model practically catapulted the brand to being a top choice among phone buyers in various age brackets.


Positioned right in between the more affordable OPPO F1 and the high-end OPPO F1 Plus, OPPO F1s is a visually-pleasing midrange Android handset with stellar selfie-centric features along with more than decent internal hardware and technical specifications.


Flaunting a real metal back plate and 2.5D Curved Glass face, OPPO F1s sports a 5.5-inch HD display, which looks good regardless of viewing angle and gets fairly bright, making it readable even outdoors.


True to the brand's 'Selfie Expert' moniker, the OPPO F1s sports a high-resolution 16 MegaPixel f/2.2 front cam with 7-level Beautification mode that evens out the user's skintone automatically, delivering selfies that are instantly ready for sharing on Facebook and Instagram. Given that the Philippines is considered as the Selfie Capital of the World, I believe that this feature is one of the biggest things that attracted many Pinoys consumers to this model.

The handset is also equipped with a 13 MegaPixel f/2.2 rear camera also delivers clear and crisp photos -- especially when used in settings where there's enough ambient light.

Powered by a 3,075 mAh non-removable battery pack, Dua SIM 4G-enabled OPPO F1s runs its ColorOS-flavored Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with a 64-Bit Octa-Core MediaTek MT6750 processor that incorporates eight ARM Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz and a Mali T860MP2 GPU, has 3GB or 4GB RAM options, and comes with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage that the user can easily beef up using the dedicated microSD card expansion slot.


Known as the world's first ever smartphone to have a 16 MegaPixel front-facing camera, the OPPO F1s is just one of many products by this trusted Chinese company that features fresh innovations and industry firsts. Some of the mobile industry breakthroughs developed by OPPO include the Ultra HD imaging feature, the first motorized rotating smartphone camera, and the world's first 5 times optical zoom on a smartphone, which is made possible by the landmark periscopic camera lens that the company showcased at the 2017 Mobile World Congress last February 28, 2017.
