With the price of Php 13990, the OPPO F5 Youth could stir the waters in the mid-range category. For one, it doesn't do away with the great specs its older brother has to offer. In fact, it still frames a 6.0-inch FHD full screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio, 16MP selfie camera with AI beauty technology and 13MP back camera. We have great things to say about the handset but we will dig into that on our review. In the meantime, we are unboxing the OPPO F5 Youth.

The back is a silky-matte panel which is very easy on the eyes and the hands. The panel features the 13MP rear camera, the LED flash, the OPPO branding and the fingerprint sensor. Flipping the handset reveals the 6.0-inch FHD Ful-Screen display with the 16MP selfie camera and proximity sensor on the upper portion.

The box is nothing different from what we have accustomed to with OPPO's previous releases. It comes with the same set of out-of-box items: the headphones, AC wall adapter, micro USB cables and user manuals. Likewise, a clear case is pretty much a standard on-the-fly item in OPPO releases nowadays.

Rounding down the sides, the left side is the home of the volume rocker while the right side has the power button and the SIM tray. It's also worth-noting that the handset comes with dedicated slots for SIM Cards and microUSB card.

While the top side has no ports or slots, the bottom is packed with the speaker grill, microUSB port, 3.5-mm headphone jack and microphone.

Beauty technology makes selfies more realistic compared to other selfie handsets in the market. Outputs from the selfie camera have great exposure and filters are not overblown.

The processor is quite fast for its price. In our Antutu benchmarks, the OPPO F5 Youth scored 68913. Our overall initial impressions gave promising results, we can't wait to try it in our full review.
