The crowning glory of the Oppo F1 Plus is its photography prowess. The handset features a 13MP primary shooter with phase detection autofocus, and its selfie snapper features a 16MP sensor. On the other hand, the Xperia X comes with a 23MP primary shooter that also features phase detection autofocus, and its front-facing camera also features a whopping 13MP sensor.
