Oppo begun making phones in 2008. The company released the Oppo F1 in the first quarter of 2016, a phone we gave four stars, and quickly followed it up with the Oppo F1 Plus.

The other 42% of the market is shared by other manufacturers such as Sony, HTC, LG, Motorola, Microsoft, Lenovo and others.
