Oppo launches budget priced Oppo F1 phone

Alex Kidman 3 February 2016


Oppo’s latest Australian offering is a decidedly inexpensive Android handset.

Oppo’s business model to date has been largely in the outright purchase space, selling handsets direct to customers rather than on contracts. While a href="https://www.finder.com.au/telechoice-is-selling-oppo-mobile-phones-on-contract">you can buy some Oppo phones through carrier partners, most sell outright. That pattern continues with its newest model.

Available next week with an outright price of just $299, the Oppo F1 is equally unlikely to join the carrier set. It’s a budget-priced Android handset available in a gold or silver finish that Oppo will sell through its web site, as well as via its partnership with Dick Smith.

Like the rest of Oppo’s range, while the F1 is based on Android 5.1, it’s heavily re-engineered with what Oppo calls "Color OS", giving it a slightly more iOS-esque user interface. This is potentially good news for customers migrating from iPhones, but a possible nuisance for everyone else. It's dual SIM capable, although again in common with many of Oppo's handsets, you have to pick between Dual SIM capability and microSD expansion, as the same tray insert handles both functions, but only one at a time.

Here are the rest of the Oppo F1’s specifications:

    I have a 64 Gb micro SD card in my Oppo F1 phone but I don’t know how to transfer my data to it. Can you help with this?

      Hi John,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Please try these steps. Go to Settings then go to General then select Storage and tap Preferred Install Location. Select External Storage (Memory Card) option if it’s available and that should make your micro SD card as the default storage. You could also try reformatting the micro SD card on your phone if the micro SD storage is not coming up on your phone. If these steps don’t work, try downloading an application mover app on your phone or contact Oppo support for further assistance.
