Oppo's also upped the ante for its gesture controls this time around, letting you choose different ways to interact with the phone. The one I tested lets you swipe up for home from the center, while swiping up from either side goes back a page.

The 16- and 5-megapixel rear cameras are AI powered and take pretty good daytime shots, but Oppo says the magic is in its night shots.

Above the tiny notch you can just barely make out the speaker slit.
