All in all, ColorOS keeps things simple, which is preferable to being overloaded with apps that duplicate Android standards and features that irritate rather than assist. There are three cameras on the back. The primary camera also supports optical image stabilisation OIS. The third camera is a Time of Flight ToF unit that uses infrared to measure distance.
You could use it to make 3D scans, for example.
I had to download a separate Oppo app called AR Measure, which can measure distance, length and area, to use the ToF camera. This was still in beta when I tried it, and accuracy was an issue -- it measured the inch diagonal of my computer screen at 33 inches, for example.

Does it really work? Yes it does. After completely draining the battery I put it on charge. After 10 minutes the battery was up to 35 percent.
After 20 minutes it had reached 73 percent. After 30 minutes it was at 95 percent, and after 35 minutes the battery was fully charged. To get this you do need to carry the Oppo charger, but given the long battery life it should be possible to charge the handset first thing in the morning and not need another charge until the next day.
