Patriotism in Indians oozes out at 3 occasions – Republic Day, Independence day and a heart-stopping cricket match. I have been a cricket follower as long as I can remember . And Of course, I have been a witness to some milestone cricketing events – the world cup, the IPL matches and all those matches that have sent my patriotism sky high! Watching every match is a treat for an Indian fan, but being in the stadium gives you a different feel altogether.
For the ongoing T20 World Cup, I had the opportunity to witness the match from the VIP Corporate lounge and boy was it a special feeling! To put a cherry on an already wonderful cake, I had the OPPO F1 in my hand so that I could capture all the special moments. As the National Anthem played, I had goosebumps on my body. This is by far the best moment I have experienced in the stadium. Of course, as the match started, I began my rendezvous with the OPPO F1 by taking selfies, pictures and videos.
I loved the sleek look of this phone. It has a 5-inch screen with a Corning Gorilla for display protection. It has a smooth finish with premium metal body. Butterfingers like me have to be pretty careful while holding it. As a fashion blogger, the camera is really a very important feature for me. This one has a 13-megapixel rear camera and 8mp front camera with multiple features in it. 13 Mp is obviously pretty cool and it also has a phase detection autofocus with an LED flash. I loved the way it color corrects in low light. It has some other awesome features like Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama. It also has an option to make gifs without having to download a separate app for it.
The front camera has its share of interesting features too. It has a f/2.0 aperture lens. It is infused with a wide aperture and it also has a screen flash. This is a big plus for me because not all places where you would want to take a picture is well lighted. In this event as well, the stadium wasn’t the best lighted for audience but I could still manage some great pictures thanks to this feature. This one definitely makes a selfie expert! I have not edited any of the pictures, so you could see the exact clarity and details of the pictures as taken from phone.
It has some incredible battery life! When I started using the phone, it was charged 100% and after I clicked my pictures, made the videos, used and abused it to my heart’s content for 6 long hours, it still had a decent charge of 45%.
All in all, it was a brilliant experience to watch India win from the VIP Lounge with OPPO F1 as my companion. Also, can we take a moment here to acknowledge what a fantastic match this was! I am sure a lot of Indians would have found a few nails missing after that evening! Personally, my heart was beating so fast, I was afraid it would just fly off my chest!
I will be back with a detailed review of this phone. Till, then keep praying for India to win and keep coming back to this blog for more reviews, fun events and fashion advice.
Keep it Stylish! Stay Beautiful
