In terms of front camera Oppo have excellent camera performance but somewhere images get overexposed in artificial light. Even though it have 16MP camera but level of details that user must get are lacking. While Asus perform average in terms of front camera it also suffer in artificial and low light conditions. But level of detailing in 8 MP Asus does a great job.

So here Asus Zenfone 3 Max wins directly.


Oppo F1S (32GB +3GB RAM) priced at 16990 INR whereas Asus Zenfone 3 Max (32GB +3GB RAM) is also priced at 16999 INR. So they are pertaining to almost same price tag.
