OPPO F21 Pro Series Review: Say Hello to the Flagship Portrait Camera System! 🔥
Well, if you still havent guessed yet, even after reading the title of the video, let me tell you im talking about the latest oppo f21 series smartphones. This is the f21 pro in the beautiful sunset orange colorway. While this is the f21 pro 5g in this dazzling, rainbow spectrum finish hello, everyone amani here from mr phone and over the past few days i have been testing out the oppo f21 pro and the oppo f21 pro 5g, and i have to tell you that over The predecessors, these phones bring a lot of improvement when it comes to the camera, the overall performance and, of course, the design evolution that you get here so without wasting any further time. Lets talk in detail about the oppo f21 series of smartphones. Shall we lets kick off the video by talking about the main highlight of these smartphones? That is the camera lets start with the oppo f21 pro at the rear. You get a 64 megapixel high resolution, main camera, coupled with a 2 megapixel depth sensor and a 2 megapixel micro lens. That is mind. Blowing more on this in a bit at the front is where you get the 32 megapixel selfie shooter, and this is of course, the brand new imx 709 camera sensor, which is also the first in the price segment and it to put things in perspective. The imx 709 brings the new generation of rgbw, which lets in more light into the camera sensor, whenever youre clicking photos or videos and according to the claims the imx 709 is up to 60.
I mean it delivers up to 60 percent brighter results than its predecessor. Now, to complement this new sensor, theres hdr support at the front, along with a bunch of retouching tools and filters to give you the best selfies in any lighting conditions. So this is what a general daylight selfie looks like taken from the oppo f21 pro perfect right. I mean the details, colors skin tone, etc. Look great! So actually this is the result of hdr processing and thats why the output looks so balanced. In fact, this is the kind of photo that you get when you dont turn on selfie hdr. So clearly the highlights in the background are blown out and the dynamic range goes for a toss, but turn on selfie hdr and forget the blown out highlights in selfies. I mean just look at the difference in both the photos: the blue sky, the greens in the trees and everything thats there in the composition looks so perfectly balanced. One more example of a selfie taken inside my car, and you can clearly see the day and night difference in both the photos beat the background or my neck region. The selfie hdr simply shows its superiority by the way. Selfie hdr does a fabulous job at night. As well so this photo on your screens was taken outside the mall and by the way i have deliberately turned off hdr in all photos. Just to show you guys what exactly does hdr bring to the table when you turn it on, and this is the final result with hdr turned on, and i will let the photo do the talking here.
But besides hdr, you can also click cool, looking selfies by utilizing the in built filters in the camera interface, i mean who needs instagram when you already have such amazing filters right in your phones, camera now, of course, the portrait selfies also turn out great from the Smartphone and you can see the results on your screens right now, clear picture with plenty of details: nice blur and sharp edge detection. But yes, the main reason behind these results is also the clever ai portrait enhancement or in simple words. You can say the clever ai engine of the smartphone that helps a lot in improving the final output. However, taking it a notch higher are the bokeh flair portrait selfies, which simply enhance your skin tone and boost the bokeh effect in the background, and this kind of result is basically seen from a professional camera, but this phone being able to achieve something like this is Marvelous so night and day indoors or outdoors, if you want the best portrait selfies, then guys, this phone is your answer: the oppo f21 pro and its flagship grade portrait camera experience. Now talking about the rear camera, the 64 megapixel main lens is able to click. Some great looking shots across a variety of lighting conditions and ive also noticed that the camera even does a superb job of capturing moving subjects, something that you see in this photo. So the auto rickshaw in this image was actually passing at a decent speed.
It is not still folks. Besides, you also get oppos tried and tested ai scene enhancement, which, as the name suggests, give you a sharper and brighter output with the help of ai and, of course, you also get hdr photography and bokeh player portrait in the rear camera. As well, which only enhance the overall camera experience on this smartphone and while i love the overall camera capabilities of the oppo f21 pro, i would still like to give a special mention to the 2 megapixel micro lens that you get on the smartphone. And this is nothing that ive ever seen before, simply look at these samples. Up until now, we have seen macro cameras on smartphones, but this micro lens is out of the world and is so amusing. I mean the way its able to go so damn close to the subject is a mind. Blowing would love to see more of such stuff on other smartphones as well. Finally, in terms of video recording the oppo f21 pro does a good job of shooting footage with utmost clarity along with optimally adjusted brightness and color beat the front or the rear. Rest assured that the camera always tries to keep the exposure levels in check all while maintaining a smooth video operation frame to frame, and that was all about the camera of the brand new oppo f21 pro and now its time to shed some light on the camera Of the f21 pro 5g as well, so again, you get three lenses at the back: a 64 megapixel main camera paired with a couple of 2 megapixel macro and depth.
Sensors at the front is a 16 megapixel camera for selfies. Now, just like the f21 pro the 64 megapixel camera of the f21, pro 5g also delivers some great looking shots, and i also got to see a very similar approach to the colors in photos. Thanks to the same dna, both the phones share, but yes, testing out this camera system again both features that is hdr, photography and aic enhancement. They are present here as well. By the way i have been clicking. Most of the photos, with both features, turned on and so far oppos ai technology hasnt disappointed me. So that is great. Apart from this, i think i can never have enough of bokeh player portrait photos and similar to the f21 pro the results from the f21 pro 5g are also brilliant, so a great show there as well and finally, in terms of video recording again, i did not Have any complaints, be it in terms of detail, color reproduction or a dynamic range stabilization in videos was also decent. Now i will give a special shout out to dual view: video that lets you simultaneously record two streams of video from both the front and rear camera. I think its a cool feature, especially if you are a video blogger. I think youre going to have a blast with this one. In a nutshell, if you saw all the photos and videos, then you know how fabulous the flagship portrait camera system is on the latest.
Oppo f21 pro and the f21 pro 5g, and so, if you are someone who loves taking stylish, selfies, sharp videos and better overall photos in that case, im sure that youll really appreciate the latest oppo f21 smartphones now lets shift our focus and talk about the design And this year round gone are the curves and what you get is this boxy treatment on both the oppo f21 pro and the f21 pro 5g that the company calls ultra slim retro design. Now the phones are indeed slim and light. The f 21 pro is only about 7.54 millimeters thick and 175 grams in weight, while the f21 pro 5g is about 7.55 millimeters thick and 173 grams in weight. Now, both phones offer great ergonomics. In fact, the tall form factor, combined with the boxy design and the lightweight construction, actually makes for a reassuring grip, and even so many people think that phones with curved backs are easy to maneuver, but trust me because of the slim form factor the handling of both These devices is superb and of course, the looks are edgy and as for the retro bit well retro or new one thing im. Sure of is that the looks of both these smartphones is definitely going to resonate with all kind of people out there. So for the oppo f21 pro, the company has gone for this industry. First fiberglass leather design and open glow design that you see here on the sunset orange finish and to make this possible.
The company has given a six time, coating and baking process with the result, being this extremely smooth to the touch rear panel, which is also very durable and then other imitation leather finishes, and, by the way, just taking a moment to appreciate the fact that not just These fce smartphones, but oppo as a brand, has been making some gorgeous looking devices with industry leading design and just when we think that they have done it all. Well, they come up with something new in this case, the sunset orange color of the f 21 pro now, fans of pure oppo glow technology. Well, the f21 pro also comes in the cosmic black shade and that one is one a stealthy looking finish. As for the oppo f21 pro 5g – well, of course you get this phone in the cosmic black shade as well, but this rainbow spectrum finish that i have with me. This one gets oppo glow technology along with three layer, texture and two layer coating to create this. Absolutely mesmerizing finish thats a sight to behold. As you can see, these layers create an iridescent and prismatic effect on the back panel. Its smooth to the touch does a fabulous job of hiding the fingerprints and, of course, looks dazzling now. Just a moment ago, i mentioned how oppo outdoes itself every time. Well, in this case, the f21 pro 5g also comes with this unique finish, and so its not just the f21 pro, but also the f21 pro 5g.
That has this completely different, look and feel attached to it. I mean at this stage i just wonder what does oppo have in store for us in the future anyway, lets move on now, apart from the design and finish, both phones are visually identical from the front, but from the back is where you differentiate between the two. As the f21 pro features a metallic camera island for the lenses, while the f21 pro 5g simply features a protruding lenses on the flat rear panel, which looks elegant onto the front, both the oppo f21 pro and the oppo f21 pro 5g features. 6.4 inches. Amoled displays that look absolutely gorgeous theres, of course, white wine, l1 certification for watching full hd videos on ott platforms, but even apart from watching videos or movies playing games, is also a treat on both the oppo f21 series, smartphones, speaking of which powering the oppo f21. Pro is the snapdragon 680 6 nanometer mobile platform, while the f21 pro 5g is powered by the snapdragon 695 5g mobile platform. Ram and storage are standard at 8 gb and 128 gb respectively. So a single variate on offer avoids confusion while buying, and i think this is a solid move. Additionally, youre also getting expandable storage options, along with virtual ram expansion to up to 5gb on both smartphones. This gives more versatility to users, especially those who, like to add additional ram for gaming or performance purposes, so performance wise. Both phones have been pretty solid and were able to handle day to day tasks with ease, even while playing heavy titles such as call of duty, mobile and asphalt 9 legends.
Both the phones did not break a sweat and i feel they do a solid job in their price segment. Apart from this, both the f21 phones feature a 4500 mah battery under the hood and with medium to heavy usage, both the f21 pro and the f21 pro 5g easily lasted me a day on a single charge, not to mention with light use. I was even hitting one and a half days of endurance, so that is great. Moreover, a full charge takes about an hour with the help of the supplied 33 watt superbook charger. So there is that oppos charging and battery optimization has always been very good, very decent and the f21 series also gets those features so full marks in this department moving on in terms of software theres, color os 12 on both smartphones, and at this stage i think You already know my love for the latest iteration of color os, as seen in my recent oppo videos, but to keep it short color. Os 12 brings this inclusive design, language thats, intuitive to use and its easy to get around with the 3d icons look great and of course, there are a ton of great features like omoji, smart sidebar, flexible windows, super focus on privacy and, of course, the new personalization Features so yes on a whole color, os 12 has been pretty familiar and a joy to use and thats about it for my review of the oppo f21 pro and the f21 pro 5g, i think both of these are fantastic smartphones that look trendy.
Of course, they feel great in the hand – and you also cant forget about the flagship portrait camera system that you get on both these smartphones. So basically, if youre on the fence to buy a solid, all around mid range, smartphone thats got the looks and performs great. I would say: go for the oppo f21 pro. However, if you need all of the things i just mentioned, plus 5g, then of course go for the oppo f21 pro 5g. But yes, overall, a solid phones cant go wrong with either of them.
