Over the past few years, OPPO has consistently launched premium mid-range smartphones with features that defy their price brackets. The company has re-defined what mid-range smartphones mean with its F-series smartphones that feature premium design language and excellent cameras. The OPPO F19 Pro signals the continuation of F-series’ tradition of stylish mid-range smartphones that not just impress with their stunning looks but also with their innovative features. This new smartphone, which has arrived alongside the F19 Pro+ 5G, specializes in videography and photography and, so is a 2021 must-have for youngsters who are constantly spending time shooting videos for social media. But that’s just one of the many great features this smartphone brings to the table, from super-fast charging to a design that turns heads wherever you go. I spent some time with the trendy new OPPO F19 Pro smartphone and found that it has all the ingredients needed to shake up the competition. Starting at Rs 21,490, the phone is available to buy now across offline retailers and Amazon India. Let me explain why OPPO F19 Pro should be on top of your list if you are looking for a new mid-range device.

Ultra-fast charging with 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0

OPPO has equipped the F19 Pro with 4,310mAh battery that I found to be more than enough to comfortably last an entire day without needing a recharge. But charging is where the real beauty of this phone’s battery lies – the fantastic 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 tech on the phone turned out to be perfect for a quick burst of charging before I headed out for a few hours of video recording. In fact, with the blazing-fast 30W charging speed,I didn’t have to wait for hours for the phone to be juiced up and ready to go. In fact, just a 5-minute burst of charge on the OPPO F19 Pro gave me as much as 3.2 hours of talk-time or 1 hour of Instagram browsing time. Now that’s what I call speed!

Dual View Video for the perfect videos

Being the photography enthusiast that I am, I always get the duty of capturing photos and videos when I am at a family event. It means that I spent most of my time behind the camera and don’t get to be in most photos and videos. It’s at times like these that I was amazed by the OPPO F19 Pro’s Dual View Video feature – it let me part of the videos with my friends and families even as I was shooting whatever that was happening! Dual View Video basically lets me use both the rear and front cameras of the phone to work in tandem to make a split-screen video that has both the perspectives. Apart from the aforementioned scenario, I feel it will be incredibly useful for those who use their phones while surprising someone, recording videos when playing with their pets or at an outing with your best friends, or vlogging in general… the possibilities are truly endless for this feature.

Even more awesome camera features!

AI Color Portrait is another feature I was amazed with. This feature uses AI to identify the subject in a video and separates them from the background. It then magically changes the background to black and white while showing the subject in vivid color. More than anything, it makes the subject pop and gives the video a stunning appearance. I used it multiple times at the mall when trying out new clothes and in shooting videos that put me front and centre even in a busy street!

Another important camera attribute of the OPPO F19 Pro is Dynamic Bokeh. It’s a sweet twist to the traditional portrait effect as it gathers more depth data and provides a more gradual blurring effect to the background. This dynamic blurring is accompanied by the ability to keep the colors in the blurred areas vivid, giving a perfectly professional touch to your portrait shots.

In my experience, the OPPO F19 Pro’s 48MP f/1.7 main camera provides excellent support for low-light photography. The ultra-wide-angle 8MP sensor offers a super-wide 119-degree viewing angle and let me capture a lot more of the scene than the primary lens. A 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor are also included in the powerful quad camera setup of the phone for more diverse photos and videos!

Gorgeous design that will turn heads

The OPPO F19 Pro boasts of exquisite looks and an amazing build quality. Its 7.8mm thickness and 172gm weight makes it a super comfortable device to hold. This ultra-thin and ultra-lightweight nature is complemented by a minimalistic design approach that grants the phone an understated gradient effect on its rear surface. The rear surface also hosts the one-piece Integrated Quad Camera module that gains a unique depth effect on account of the materials used for its construction.

On the front, the device hosts a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display that’s surrounded by negligible bezels, giving it a 90.8 percent screen-to-body ratio. This makes for a truly immersive visual experience no matter what you’re watching on the screen.

Combine the immersive screen of OPPO F19 Pro with its top-of-the-line build, attractive design, and a camera system that never fails to wow you, and you’ve got yourself a phone that not only justifies its price but also introduces innovative features to consumers who are looking for a premium device in the price range.
