Review Summary

With the debut of the Oppo F21 Pro and Oppo F21 Pro 5G, Oppo has expanded its F-series of smartphones. Both devices are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets and run Android 12 with ColorOS 12 on top. We will be talking about the former today. F21 Pro is the less expensive of the two at Rs 22,990. To make the Oppo F21 Pro look as premium as possible, Oppo has chosen a Fiberglass-Leather design.

Although the phone is known for its fantastic camera, it also has a long battery life and offers a superb user experience. Today, we’ll take a look at how the F21 Pro stacks up to the competition. Read our review to decide whether or not the latest Oppo F21 Pro is a good investment.

Oppo F21 Pro Price in India and Variants

The Oppo F21 Pro 4G costs Rs 22,999 for a single 8GB + 128GB storage variant. It will be available in two colour options: Cosmic Black or Sunset Orange. Fibreglass and leather are combined in the latter for a more premium look. The Oppo F21 Pro will be on sale starting on April 15th.

Oppo F21 Pro Review

The design of the Oppo F21 Pro is very different from what you’re used to seeing. The smartphone’s slim and lightweight design helps it appear elegant while also making it simple to use with one hand. The phone comes in two colours: Sunset Orange and Cosmic Black. It looks like a high-end phone but is also youthful and fun. It should be noted that the leather finish is only available on the Sunset Orange colour variant.

Oppo F21 Pro design Review

At 175 grammes, the Oppo F21 Pro is a breeze to hold in one hand, and I had no trouble using it that way. The device is comfortable to grip because of its flat edges. There is a power button on the right and a volume rocker and SIM card slot on the left side. The loudspeaker and USB Type C port are located at the bottom of the device.

There is an AMOLED display on the Oppo F21 Pro featuring a 90Hz refresh rate. The screen has a maximum brightness of 600 nits, making it ideal for reading in bright sunlight. The screen is good for binge-watching because it has good colour reproduction.

Oppo F21 Pro display Review

The Oppo F21 Pro has a triple back camera layout that includes a 64MP main camera, a 2MP microscope camera, and a 2MP macro camera. There’s also a 32-megapixel front-facing camera. The 64MP main camera captures stunning images in bright sunlight. It captures photographs with excellent clarity, vibrant colours, and fine details.

When it comes to specs, the Oppo F21 Pro is backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Oppo F21 Pro could have used a more powerful processor at its price point. While the Oppo F21 is great for everyday use, we noticed some lags when multitasking or playing games.

Oppo F21 Pro camera Review

The Oppo F21 Pro comes pre-installed with Android 12 and the ColorOS 12 skin. The UI has a lot of features and customization options.

The Oppo F21 Pro comes with a 4,500mAh battery and a 33W fast charger. The battery life of the device is very good. With the 33W charger, the phone can be charged from 0 to 100 per cent in about one hour.


There’s no doubt that the F21 Pro’s main focus is how it looks and how it feels. Oppo F21 Pro is a solid mid-range phone with a wide range of features. In addition, the device includes SuperVOOC fast charging as well as the most recent version of the Android OS.

A few things are missing, such as dust and water protection and stereo speakers. Furthermore, the F21 Pro’s underlying chipset makes it feel somewhat out of place in the midst of a growing market of competitors. However, it still tends to impress on a regular basis because of its solid performance. We’ll have a full review of the F21 Pro very soon so stay tuned with Cashify.
