If you know me, you know I rarely take selfies… like once-in-a-blue-moon-rare. The gallery on my mobile phone has more food photos and photos of my kids. And you can count on my hand the selfies that I saved. You know why? Honestly, I feel awkward because I don’t know how to take good selfies. So last year, I made this promise to learn how to do it. No follow through happened on that promise after I took several ones that didn’t look too good.
Well, this year, I think the selfie gods heard my plea and sent an Oppo F5 Youth my way! Oppo is known as the selfie expert and leader and the Oppo F5 Youth, as the name suggests, is their selfie-centric phone for young people.
Unboxing Oppo F5 Youth
Oppo F5 Youth costs ₱12,990.
The contents of the box includes: Oppo F5 Youth, earphones, micro usb cable, charger, sim ejector tool, documentation, and case. The smartphone already has a tempered glass, no need to buy it anymore.
It’s available in gold and black. This is how the gold looks like…
After charging and downloading all the apps that I need. I started taking those dreaded selfies.
#Selfies and #Famfies + Oppo F5 Youth Features
First up was when the first half of my day was done and I looked like trash. So haggard from work-out, work, cooking, and Twinkle kulit! Surprisingly, I looked glowing and well, I didn’t look haggard!
I guess I have to thank Oppo F5 Youth’s 16MP front camera and its A.I. Beauty Technology that gives natural and awesome selfies. It doesn’t give you beautiful image that is far from how you look, instead it heightens your natural beauty base on your age, skin tone, and skin type. It also has that Bokeh effect that makes you glow.
It has facial feature optimization that presents the real you, I guess that’s where their hashtag #CaptureTheRealYou came from. By using 200 facial recognition spots, the F5 Youth highlights the contour of your face to present a natural selfie just like my photo above. Pero parang kulang, so nag-lipstick ako (that’s the topmost photo)
Here’s a famfie when we had a lunch out last weekend….
and a selfie…
and a selfie with my nanay…..
One of things that I love about the Oppo F5 Youth is that it has a 6” FHD+ (2160×1080) Full Screen Display. I love smartphones with big screens because it makes for a better experience when browsing photos, watching videos, and playing a game.
Like any other smartphones, it has a fingerprint sensor at the back you can use as passcode to unlock your phone but it also has a super friendly flagship function — a Speedy facila Unlock feature, where you can unlock your screen simply by holding the phone up as if to say hi. I haven’t tried this feature yet but I’m sure it’s useful especially when your hands are busy or wet and you need to unlock your phone.
But of course, among all those feature what I love the most is that it gives awesome selfies whatever time of day and whatever situation I’m in! I think you’re gonna be seeing a lot of selfies and famfies on my Facebook page, blog and Instagram from now on.

I like the quality of the photos! I’m so tempted to get an Oppo. I need a phone for blogging, looks like it packs really good features.

The Oppo is stepping up their game! I love the phone. Though I’m pretty happy with the one I have now, I’ve seen how the Oppo works and grabe, it’s revolutionizing itself and surprising us every day!

I loooove Oppo phones! They have great camera features. I call it gluta-phone sometimes, haha!
OMG Oppo does take the best selfies, no? I love my iPhone and its camera but it’s so unforgiving when it comes to selfies LOL!
Tipid Mommy says

I dont take selfies that much, too. I feel so ugly. When you explain everything with your oppo, it looks like a really nice phone. My more than a year old phone has real nice camera but already has cracks. I plan to replace but cant find an affordable one that can take reak nice photos. Can you recommend this in taking other than selfies?
The photos look amazing! I haven’t tried an Oppo phone yet but it seems I should. 🙂
Mommy Rockin' In Style says
I was truly impressed with the quality of the photo. If I were to replace my current phone, I will definitely consider Oppo. Thanks for sharing!
I love phones with big screen too. You look so pretty and slim!
Wow! May built in ‘beauty plus’! Oppo is now everywhere… some friends and relatives has it so I guess its pretty good considering its quality and affordability. We are thinking of buying one as a gift for our trusted employee.?
Angelyn Demo says
Wow, I super like this one. It will be a big help for me coz I’m also an entertainment blogger. Love to take pictures with celebrities. I need to learn also how to make a good selfie. I’m not a selfie kind of person, because I have a hard time taking selfie since my arms are not that long and I’m also shy in asking celebrities to take a selfie. But sometimes it’s a must for me as an Entertainment Blogger. Hope to have Oppo Smartphone soon.

Wow! Never thought na ganito kaganda ang camera ni Oppo, I was expecting some super filtered photos but this looks really natural. Bongga! I’m considering buying this phone sa totoo lang kaso okay pa si phone ko eh. Pero I’m considering this talaga. Help me decide.
