Oppo is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world. Recently, it even surpassed Huawei as the largest smartphone brand in China. With its fantastic pace of growth, Oppo is expected to continue to put pressure on high-end phone makers like Apple and Samsung.
That is because Oppo’s smartphones have attractive, high-end features at a lower cost. With aggressive marketing and advertising, Oppo has hugely benefited from sales in Southeast Asia and India as well as in China. While you may not see high-range Oppo smartphones in Nepal, you have a variety of mid-range and budget-range smartphones to choose from.

Along with the sleek design, cameras are the main attraction of Oppo F19 Pro. It boasts a quad-camera setup on the back. The primary one is a 48 MP f/1.7 PDAF camera accompanied by other 8 MP ultrawide, 2 MP macro and 2 MP depth sensor. There is also an LED flash on the side of the camera panel. There are a variety of video and photo features on this phone such as night mode, expert mode, panorama, portrait, time-lapse, slow-motion, text scanner, and Google Lens. There is also an AI colour portrait video mode that lets the subject of your video stand out in vivid colour by changing the background to black and white.
The maximum image size is 6000×8000 pixels. It records videos up to 4K@30 fps and slow-motion videos in 1080p@120fps. The front-facing is a 32 MP selfie camera that can click photos up to 4896×6528 resolution and take videos in 1080p. Another interesting addition to Oppo F19 Pro is it can capture videos with the front and back cameras simultaneously in the split-screen mode.
Performance and battery life
Oppo F19 Pro runs on Android 11 with ColorOS 11.1 and is powered by Octa-Core Mediatek Helio P95 chipset. This chipset has been boosted to achieve a 10% increase in benchmark performance versus the previous generation. The system performance optimiser helps to reduce lag even after long periods of use and increases touch responsiveness by 41.4% and launches apps 30% faster. The game focus mode allows immersive gaming without distractions.
The phone is backed up with a 4310mAh non-removable battery which supports a 30W VOOC flash charge. With five minutes of charging, the user can get 3.2 hours of talk time and one hour of Instagram surfing. It also has a super nighttime standby mode that keeps the phone running if you are low on power and need it for essential use. This feature is only for night (11 pm-7 am) and only consumes 1.8% battery.
