Oppo F7 Customer Review
RishiGuru writes and says, “Oppo has been using MediaTek SoCs for a long time. They know Mediatek SoCs very well & their ColorOS is very well optimized for them.
MediaTek also gives preferential treatment for such loyal customers like Oppo, as their sub-brand RealMe will be the first one to get their hands on the new Helios P70 SoC.
