OPPO also rolled out the Reno 2F as a sub variant to the Reno 2. If you are still a fan of the pop-up technique on a selfie camera, the Reno 2F could be your favorite in Nigeria.
From the few smartphones Oppo have launched in Nigeria, it is very clear that the company is not manufacturing for low-end users in Nigeria. Her price point is number one evidence.
The Oppo Reno 2F is another good looking smartphone that will remind you of the f 11 pro in Nigeria. This is by no means a 100% cheap smartphone but trust me, it is worth your cash.
A first look at her outward appearance will remind you of your dream smartphone especially when you are viewing from behind. The Oppo Reno 2F is a pride to handle.
