New Delhi, more fondly Dilli to those who call it home, has been high up on our list of places to explore; it opens its arms, welcoming everyone to learn more about its effervescent, mercurial disposition. And in the world of millennials and GenZ, exploration rarely happens without a smartphone to capture every memory, waiting to be re-lived at leisure. Exploring Delhi has been a delight with the newly launched OPPO F21 Pro as my travel companion making my food expeditions across Delhi cafes a victorious affair.

The OPPO F21 Pro patiently allowed me to click multiple pictures and videos without having to worry about the perfect lighting. It let me Flaunt my Best and enjoy the moment to the fullest. Through this article, I will give you a sneak peek into my travel journey with the OPPO F21 Pro.


We stepped out on a bright day to relish a variety of cuisines at some of the capital’s best restaurants. Even though we were out the whole day hopping from one place to the other the device’s ultra-slim retro design made it very comfortable to hold the phone for long periods of time. In fact, when you look at the design on the OPPO F21 Pro you get mesmerized by this beautiful sunset orange color in the uber-cool Fiberglass Leather design which by the way is one of a kind. And the back panel having the new Orbit Light encircling the Microlens adds just the right amount of dazzle to the device. It’s comfortable, stylish, and does not smudge even with greased hands. And then of course is the Flagship Grade AI Portrait camera system on the F21 Pro is absolutely gorgeous.

Our first spot was Ardor 2.0 at Connaught Place. This was the perfect start to the journey as I was craving a fresh bowl of curd rice to beat the summer heat. Next, I ordered the Pushpa thali which is a mecca for any South Indian cuisine lover. The thali had a delicious combination of masala dosa, coconut chutney, papad, and sambar. Alongside enjoying this scrumptious meal was my thrill to photograph the thali with the OPPO F21 Pro. Even though it had a dimly lit decor we were able to capture some stunning shots using the AI Portrait Enhancement feature. The result was spectacular and did not require any editing to make it instagrammable.

The phone was exceptionally good at taking all the pictures and ensured a perfect start to my food journey for the day.

After a sumptuous brunch, it was time to head out to look for something cooler. This thirst took us to Runway 1 Cafe in Rohini, where you get food delivered to you right on an airplane! The decor matched well with the theme, with a stunning view of Adventure Land’s bridge. To capture the best pictures of our drink (we ordered Crash Landing which had mint leaves, ice, and lots of lemons), OPPO F21 Pro’s lighting adjustment worked best to our advantage. The AI Portrait Enhancement mode helped in bringing out the three different layers of the drink and also captured the scintillating combination of chili cheese toast that we binged on.

Bokeh Flare Portrait Mode OFF and ON

Next, we moved to Sitcom in Rohini. Here we used the Bokeh Flare Portrait mode on the OPPO F21 Pro. Let me tell you that this feature is a big sell for people like us, who love capturing pictures doing the most bizarre things in the world. It makes any situation truly stand out giving you professional quality portrait bokeh pictures. Here in these shots, you can see the difference between the mode turned on and off. It gives the picture a cinematic effect with the slight blur in the background making me and my hat stand out.

Wait …not to forget about the 32 MP Ultra-Sensing Selfie camera with segment-first flagship-level Sony IMX709 sensor that captured the perfect selfie. I also tried the selfie HDR feature that detects light conditions using AI and automatically apply image enhancement algorithms in the picture.

AI Colour Portrait OFF & ON

As we sat sipping on butterbeer shakes and a sorting hat, OPPO’s AI Colour Portrait mode helped us click pictures of our brief entry into the wizarding world. While we were sorted into Slytherin, our heart still beats for Gryffindor.

Garam Dharam

As the evening approached, we decided to go to Garam Dharam in Noida, where you get the combination of mouth-watering food and decor that takes you back to the time of Sholay and Gabbar. OPPO F21 Pro was able to click pictures which automatically adjusted to the lighting of the restaurant.

OPPO Enco Air2 Pro True Wireless earbud

In the middle of our cafe-hopping, we got on an urgent work call, which was conducted seamlessly in spite of the cacophony around us, using OPPO Enco Air2 Pro True Wireless earbuds with Active Noise Cancelling Earbuds. We’d recommend this for anyone who needs to get on a work call, when they are, well let's say, busy partying with friends as it perfectly cancels the higher frequency noise around you. Enco Air2 Pro comes with 12.4mm titanised diaphragm driver, a custom-made large rear chamber that works with the Enco Live bass tuning to produce extra bass and an overall amazingly balanced sound. The OPPO Enco Air2 Pro comes in a dual-layer transparent bubble design with a refractive top cover. We are sure you’d love to have one too for yourself.

Night Mode ON

Last but definitely not the least was our last pitstop What a Comic Show Cafe near IIT Delhi. OPPO F21 Pro’s night mode came out all guns blazing, capturing perfect pictures. With an automatic AI Palette, the visuals of the places were automatically fixed and we were able to take pictures of our favorite comics.

OPPO F21 Pro comes with a 4500 mAh battery and Super Power Saving Mode + Super Nighttime Standby

A hearty meal later, the traveller in us was satiated and drained, but OPPO F21 Pro was still raring to go. In spite of being out on the road all day, the phone managed to still beam with life. With a 4500 mAh battery and Super Power Saving Mode + Super Nighttime Standby, we were able to continue our food hunt. The phone is supported by 33W SuperVOOC fast charging that comes to the rescue in case you need charging support and in just five minutes of charging, it gives you 1.68 hours of talk time. Also, the OPPO F21 Pro comes with 8GB RAM plus 128GB ROM together with OPPO’s RAM Expansion technology with up to 5GB of extended memory. With enormous memory and a powerful Snapdragon 680 processor, the phone is a performance powerhouse in itself.

OPPO F21 Pro

To sum up, I was thoroughly impressed by the phone’s camera capabilities. The pictures came out good regardless of where we were and what we were shooting. But personally, for me, the front camera of the phone stole the show with an exclusive Sony IMX 709 sensor that made bad lighting a thing of the past for selfies. There were so many modes and filters to choose from that I was thoroughly spoiled for choice. The OPPO F21 Pro, made all the moments and pictures serve as perfect reminders of a day well spent. If you too want to capture your travel and food journey the OPPO F21 Pro can be your perfect companion.
