Best Features of OPPO F1s

There are so many mid range Smart phones nowadays that promises excellent camera features. I bought one myself but kind of dismayed with my photos. I think for phones like this, you really need some photography skills to be able to produce a photo or even a selfie-shot that is worthy to be posted on your Social Media accounts.

Have you guys heard about the Oppo F1s? This beast of a phone is making rounds in the social media world, and of course wanted to see it for myself. I am not as gifted as Migs when it comes to photography. I mean, he can take good shots event with a watermelon. I told him that if I can take beautiful shots with Oppo F1s, then I might consider buying one for myself.

So, we headed to the nearest Gadget store and asked the beautiful staff if I can try the Camera features of this much talked about smart phone.

Here are the specs of the Oppo F1s.

16MP Front Camera

For people who likes taking selfies low light situation is a nightmare, but it looks like the universe answered your prayers! Imagine a 16MP front facing camera where you can snap a killer selfie using touch, voice and a palm gesture. Isn’t that amazing? Their front beauty camera has a 1/3.1-inch sensor and an F/2.0 aperture which allows more light to enter the camera. Who doesn’t want a natural-looking selfie even on low light, huh?

Beautify 4.0

Women will surely love this feature. Imagine being able to hide a zit or blemishes in a natural way. This feature allows users to capture their very best looks without looking like a caricature. LOL!


Oppo F1s do not just give you endless opportunities to be creative with their filters but you also have the option to add the date, time, temperature, etc to your photo. That means, you will never forget when you created those beautiful memories from your phone. Plus for bloggers like myself, I don’t need to buy an app just to be able to add a logo on my photos because it comes with this feature for FREE!

Selfie Panorama

Okay, I admit. I am one of those people who’s really bad with “groufies”. Guess what, their phone has a feature where you can take a wide angle selfie which means, no one will be left behind. Selfie sticks will be a thing of the past. The F1s automatically stitches together the photos for you.

13MP Rear Camera

Of course, DSLR is still the best choice if you want to be a professional photographer. But for people like me who’s most of the time too lazy to bring a DSLR, I need a phone that can capture exceptionally clear and detailed photos. The F1s sports a 13MP rear camera with industry-leading imaging chip. A 1/3.06-inch sensor will simply make your night shots “intagrammable”!

A Beauty to See and To Hold

I have never seen a smart phone as elegant as Oppo F1s. It’s not too small but also not too big for a lady. The 5.5 inch screen is perfect for typing SMS, reading an e-book and even watching videos. The 2.5 Corning Gorilla glass 4 also makes this phone worthy of every centavo.

0.22s Touch Access

Who would have thought that a phone as reasonably-priced at Oppo F1s has this feature?
They made their sensor snappier and more accurate. So, the more frequent you use this feature, the more sensitive it can be. Coolness!

Customizeable figerprint-activated app launch

3GB RAM with an MT6750 octa-core processor. Faster Than Ever!

This for me is the second best feature of OPPO F1s! I am a multi-tasker and this is what I really need. Multitasking with this baby will be buttery smooth. Switching from app to app will be seamless. Thanks to the  ginornous 3GB of RAM paired with a Mediatek MT6750 octa-core processor.

Dual-Sim + Individual SD Slot

I own an online shop so, I am using two contact numbers. So, yeah. I am using two phones because of that. But hey, the SIM tray has two 4G SIM Slots supporting top speeds of up to 150 mbps and a dedicated micro SD card slot. This will give me more room for my products’ photos. I can ditch the other phone and just bring a power bank. So convenient, right?


All-New ColorOS 3.0 Based On Android 5.1

Faster, Steadier, Better. You do not need to be super techie to understand this: No more lagging!

Of all the Smart Phones that I tested in search for the best phone to replace what I am currently using, Oppo F1s is on top of my list. It’s beautifully created and doesn’t come with a shocking price tag. Yes! It’s one of the best mid range phone for only P12,990! (ref: Oppo FB page)

Our Shopback Wish List

Hi there!

The second half of the year is over and if you haven’t created an account at Shop back yet, well, you are missing A LOT! You may have previously shopped online and enjoyed the item that you purchased. But wouldn’t it be more fun to shop and earn cash back? I’ll be sharing with you our Shop back wish list so you’ll get a glimpse of the stuff that you can shop online thru shop back.

As you all know, Migs just recovered from Tuberculosis. The juicer that we have at home is about to retire. Having a juice extractor will be very helpful for me in serving healthy drinks for Migs. Plus, it is made by a trusted brand! I bet some of you would want one too. It’s from Lazada, and you know what that means – you have three options to pay the item. Card, installment (thru card) or pay it upon delivery (Cash-on-delivery).


My DSLR got molds because I haven’t used it for months. So, I am thinking about upgrading my smart phone because buying a new camera is too expensive and sometimes, I am too lazy to carry a camera around. I have been reading a lot about Flash Plus 2  and I am definitely adding this to our wish list!



Because of all the things that Migs and I have been through this year, I know we deserve another vacation! It would be lovely to spend his birthday in one of our favorite destinations – Boracay! Do you know that you can actually earn cash by booking a flight at Expedia thru shop back? Look at this great deal.


That completes our wish list! I would love to read yours too! Did you know that  Shop back can actually grant your wish? How? First, you need to create a Shop back account. Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to: Shop back website and create an account by clicking the Sign-up button at the upper right corner of the web page.

Protect yourself this Rainy Season

Although we have stocks of vitamins at home, we oftentimes fail to take them on a daily basis. I guess we’re too occupied with our jobs and we’re always in a rush. We regret not taking our daily doze vitamins when my husband caught Tuberculosis. We thought that having no vices and eating the right food is enough to boost our energy and immune system. But we were wrong. There are many things that contributed to Migs’ illness and we’ve learned our lesson. Too bad that we learned it the hard way.

When Migs was confined, I immediately bought vitamins to protect myself from the virus that I might get from him. I am now regularly taking Enervon, a nutritional supplement to help promote increased energy and enhance the immune system. Enervon gave me the strength  to continue working even if I didn’t have enough sleep. I continued taking Enervon because I’m getting good results. I never caught flu since Migs’ confinement. 8 hours of sleep, proper diet, exercise and right vitamins can really boost our immune system.


To protect my skin for looking dull and becoming dry because I had to stay light at times, I take Myra-E. Myra-E doesn’t only help me maintain healthy skin and eyes but it also help me improve my nerve functions and help prevent onset of neuromuscular degenerative diseases.


These are my two favorite products from Unilab. What’s yours? If you haven’t tried any of their products, please check out their website. There are more than 1,000 Unilab products for your family’s needs and these products are meticulously checked by 3,000 experts. I am sure you’ll find the perfect vitamins/supplements for you and your family.


Stay healthy and enjoy the rest of the week!

Oh My Bag Base Shaper

Anyone who owns a Louis Vuitton Speedy or a bag of its kind can definitely relate to how I feel about getting my things organized without ruining its “signature form”. I’ve tried Oh My Bag’s Base Shaper and not only that they customize their shaper to the style and size of a Louis Vuitton Speedy, you also get to choose a color. I got myself a brown one which blends well with my purse.


The item is fairly priced for Php 200 and was sewn neatly.



Though I love how the products helped me in organizing my stuff, I still prefer using a pouch inside my purse rather than making it appear that it’s not authentic by adding a form. I am also afraid that the base shaper would ruin my bag in the long run because it’ll create edges at the bottom. Planning on trying out other items from Oh My Bag. I am sure they have an item suited for a consumer like me. I have others bags that need some TLC too. Thinking of buying a bag water protector for our summer getaway!

Aside from taking Myra E vitamins, I also love their facial wash products. Not only that their products are affordable and effective, they are also suited for Asian skin.

Here are the two facial products to watch out for. I have been using these products for a week and I’ve already noticed improvements. None of these products caused allergic reactions to my skin.
