Review Lenovo Vibe S1 VS Oppo F1

This time, I will review Lenovo Vibe S1 and Oppo F1 where both are mobile middle class. In addition to qualified specifications, both phones are also focused on the needs of users who like to do a photo selfie order to maximize results in all conditions. With a price range of about below 3 million, what are the advantages and disadvantages of each of the smartphone? Here's his review.


Lenovo Vibe S1

Oppo F1

At first glance, I received two phone physically similar. Dimensions and weights are both only slightly, let alone both of which also use a milky white color. A rather distinguish, rear Lenovo made slightly curved so that when gripped a bit more ergonomic than the Oppo has a flat shape only.

Both carry design unibody so that the rear can not be opened. To put the SIM card and microSD memory card, Lenovo provides a slot on the left side that must be opened using SIM injector or a needle, while the Oppo put the slot on the right side.

Compartments used to store both cards, Lenovo and Oppo alike take advantage of the second slot in the compartment to put the second SIM card or microSD card. And you have to choose one when they want to use it.


The back of the glossy coated material using current Lenovo that one side makes it look cool but is plagued with a smooth surface. While the rear cover layer Oppo made more abrasive but uses a plastic material that is not as solid as Lenovo. Although using a plastic cover, other materials from the Oppo using metallic materials that feels solid when held.

Both have a screen size of 5 inches. However, Lenovo is superior with support for Full HD resolution which is only carrying Oppo HD screen. For business protection screen, both are using Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for Lenovo and Gorilla Glass 4 to Oppo. The 5-inch screen to perform optimally because of the physical buttons on the form of soft key functions Recent, Home, and Back is placed outside of the screen.

Oppo superior sensor support where there are nine types of sensors for enjoyment as well as compatibility more in running a variety of applications. Lenovo itself only has three standard sensors comprising Accelerometer, Light, and Proximity. For those of you who need support Multitouch screen, both phones equally support up to 10 simultaneous touch points.


The results of the performance of Lenovo Vibe S1 (left) and Oppo F1 (right) through the 3Dmark application.

Both use the octa-core processor chip, Lenovo uses MediaTek MT6752 chip and Oppo using Snapdragon 616 which is enough to run the latest applications as well be some good games. 3 GB RAM support has also been looking to run multiple applications simultaneously (multitasking).

Look at the performance of the specifications used, we use a benchmark application used. The result is visible that Lenovo is superior in applications Antutu, GeekBench, and PCMark. But for business graphics, Oppo is tandem with Adreno 405 graphics chip capable of performing more impressive by the difference in scores rather distant in applications where the session 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited, 9051. Unlike the score reaches nearly half of Lenovo which only displays a score of 5196.

For testing based live game, I tried to install the game Asphalt 8: Airborne. The result turned out to show F1 Oppo graphics performance is superior. This is evident when we compare directly the game. An early look at the game it is clear that Lenovo Vibe S1 somewhat halting. Oppo F1 on its own appearance looks smooth and uneventful.

Of endurance battery, Oppo also looks tougher. This is evidenced by the test using PCMark for Android - Battery Life Work where Lenovo is able to last up to 5 hours and Oppo last up to 7 hours 30 minutes. Whereas the supply side, Oppo is only slightly larger than the Lenovo.



Camera settings Lenovo Vibe S1 (left) and the camera features Oppo F1 (right).

The camera is an added value in these two cell phones. In addition to the main camera resolution at 13 MP, respectively front camera puts special features. In front of the camera Lenovo, there are two lenses that have a function as a complement to the respective resolution of 8 MP and 2 MP. The first lens serves to lock the subject, while a 2 MP camera on duty to keep the depth of color photos. This combination makes photo composition Selfie become more vibrant.

The front camera Oppo favor of a resolution of 8 MP with additional features Flash Screen. This feature will clarify the face while doing selfie in dim light conditions. Similarly, when Selfie with backlit background.

Each phone provides camera menu with choices that are tailored to a variety of conditions. How is the result? For testing the camera, I use the automatic setting on both. Testing the front camera is represented with three options, namely outdoor conditions, selfie, as well as photos from a short distance using macro mode.

Outdoor shooting using the main camera Lenovo Vibe S1 (left) and the main camera Oppo F1 (right).

Shots in the main camera for indoor and outdoor conditions each producing a different quality. With auto setting, the main camera shots Lenovo appear darker, while the main camera Oppo looks brighter and brighter. Nevertheless, the resulting image detail is not much different.

Macro features the images using the primary camera Lenovo Vibe S1 (left) and the primary camera Oppo F1 (right).

The same thing happens when taking a picture at close range or macro mode. Autofocus on both runs quite well with results similar to the shooting in outdoor conditions.

Shooting outdoor use Selfie feature Lenovo Vibe S1 (left) and Oppo F1 (right).

The front camera is a mainstay for Selfie photo produce fairly good quality at both. Only if the note is more detailed, Lenovo front camera produces images more refined so it does not seem natural and looks more refined, much like when using Beautify features. While Oppo F1 prefers detail. Although the results of the front camera photo Lenovo Vibe S1 looks less natural, but is able to capture better background where the color of the sky looks like the original. The images in front of the camera Oppo F1 show the facial image is very sharp and the background clearer but less caught well.


User Interface is presented Lenovo Vibe S1 (left) and Oppo F1 (right).

Based Android Lollipop, Oppo uses a newer version of the Android v5.1 and v5.0 Lenovo uses the Android version. Lenovo wrapped with User Interface VibeUI, while Oppo wrapped with ColorOS User Interface. Both are often digunaan on a variant of phones made by each featuring a different characteristic. Similarly, the availability of the default application is a supporter of the functions of the mobile phone. Both phones are also negate the App Drawer that is already commonly applied to newer operating systems so that all installed applications are placed on the homescreen.

Applications that are included on the shortcut on the main page on the Lenovo and Oppo consists of 4 the same application ie Phone, Phonebook, SMS, and Browser. Special Lenovo, the default browser already installed Google Chrome. For business bloatware, the smartphone includes many built-in applications to support daily activities.

For the second multimedia business mobile phone using only standard facilities only and not embed special audio technology. Lenovo put the speakers built at the bottom of the bezel, it makes it sound maximum because not blocked or obstructed when held in hand when placed on the table. While Oppo speakers placed at the rear in the bottom right corner which makes it somewhat hindered when held or placed on a table.

We tried running the audio files with a maximum volume, Lenovo speaker sounded hoarse. For maximum results, try on a volume of about 80%. For Oppo speakers, this has not happened and the sound still sound loud without sounding hoarse.


The range of the price of 3 million and below 4 million, some competitors are ready to compete including the Samsung Galaxy A3 are present in the range of 3.8 million but has slightly lower specifications. Or Sony Xperia M4 Aqua with specifications that are not less tenacious and reliable features such as waterproof, or HTC Desire 826 Dual SIM has a resolution main camera and front equally with 13 MP. However, if only to compare between Lenovo Vibe S1 and Oppo F1, each has advantages and disadvantages.


When compared with the category that I created, in terms of design both equally cool with the characteristic of each. However we prefer the design of the Lenovo Vibe S1 thanks to the rear are more elegant. For the camera we assess Oppo F1 is superior, both in front of the camera and the main camera. To support the features, unfortunately Oppo F1 does not support USB-OTG and recording in FM radio function, whereas Lenovo Vibe S1 has two such features.
