OPPO Mobiles, a leading global technology brand, announces that OPPO F1 Plus has averaged one sale every 1.1 seconds, reaching a total of 7 million units so far globally. Oppo is also ranked number 4 in the top 5 smartphone vendors list and is the best performing brand in the first quarter of 2016.
Mr Sky Li, Sky Li, OPPO Global VP, MD of International Mobile Business and President of OPPO India, said, “We are very excited with the performance of OPPO F1 Plus. Our focus on camera technology and photography-focused F series has resulted in excellent results for the brand - first with OPPO F1 becoming the best-selling model and now OPPO F1 Plus recording great sales. The acceptance from the consumers has been great and we believe that the reason behind this is the brand’s focus on taking consumer feedback seriously. We listen to users, and bring them meticulously designed, top-quality products that they’ll truly love. That’s what’s brought us this far and what will continue to drive us going forward.”
On the design front, OPPO’s VOOC Flash Charge technology has been one of its most celebrated advances. OPPO also announced that by the end of June, global users of VOOC-enabled devices will reach 30 million. VOOC’s industry-leading charging speeds are well-known, but an equally important advantage lies in the fact that it can achieve these speeds while preserving the longevity of the battery.
Industry standards stipulate that, after 500 charge cycles, a battery should still have 80% of its original capacity. The F1 Plus maintains this capacity through a full 900 cycles, making it 1.8 times stronger than the industry standard, on top of providing breakneck charging speeds.
The company has stated that their products go through an expansive testing regime before reaching market. From the arrival of components at the factory to the final production stage, OPPO devices like the F1 Plus undergo 390 quality assurance tests, including four full trial production runs. Among these tests are ones that are exclusive to OPPO, specially designed to take into account every last detail of the end user experience. As an example, OPPO’s unique procedure for testing one small but essential aspect of the F1 Plus: the micro-USB charging port.
Oppo has also observed that with other competitor phones users can inadvertently damage the inside of the charging port by inserting the charging cable at odd angles or exerting unusual pressure. Although it’s an unlikely occurrence, the consequences to the user can be critical.A charging cable is inserted into the port and then jerked in four directions, up, down, left and right, using 3 kilograms of pressure. A charging port is only allowed to advance to the production stage if it can undergo this harsh treatment a full 5,000 times without losing any functionality.
