As well as improved video filters that allow users to create their own movies with the press of a button.

Just curious, whats the deal with these? Are they Paid for adds, Product supplied Reviews, or someone just really like the Chinese Oppo phones?

I remember thinking the other one was odd, and wondering if someone was doing phone reviews, but seems to be just Oppo?

Oppo is the first brand to reach out with review devices which are loaned and returned and since the first one I really think more people need to notice the brand.

If more brands respond to emails there would be more news 😛
