Oppo F9 Pro Review:

The Oppo F9 Pro definitely stands out to be something different in order to attract the attention with its mesmerizing back glass design and great display. The design is fantastic with mesmerizing glass back and 3 vibrant colours: Sunrise Red, Twilight Blue, and Starry Purple. The phone also offers water drop notch and vibrant colour range. But for heavy performance users, F9 Pro is not the ideal choice due to its average camera, battery and performance features.

Oppo F9 Pro Rating by Alltechbuzz: 4/5

Final Verdict:

Oppo F9 Pro is a stylish smartphone with striking colours, textures and water drop notch. But it slightly lacks in heavy-duty performances. Otherwise, Oppo F9 Pro is an appealing smartphone on launch discounts.
