Oppo has created a bunch of photography-centric phones called the “F series” and this series has been a major success in different parts of the world. With the dawn of 2017, the company has introduced Oppo F3 series. Oppo F3 Plus is the first phone in the series to be released. As the previous series, F3 targeted the selfie-obsessed people. Due to this reason, they have introduced the dual front camera in the phone. There are other phones in the market such as Vivo V5 Plus that offers the dual front camera. The second camera in the Vivo phone is intended to capture the wider details but the second camera of the Oppo f3s is for the wide angle/group selfies.
Oppo F3 Plus – Design and Build
In terms of design and quality, the new Oppo phone does not check all the boxes. The metal uni-body and the curvy design gives it a good look and the soft-touch finish makes it easy to hold. Although, the phone has a 6-inch display but the thin borders on the sides make it look cool. The display area of the phone can be shrunk so that the phone can be used with a single hand. The phone comes with a fast fingerprint scanner, dual SIM-card tray, microSD slot, a headphone jack and a micro-USB port on the phone.
The 6-inch display provides sharp results but the screen has saturated colours and there is no option to adjust the colours and saturation of the screen. Gorilla Glass 5 is used to protect the screen of the phone. All the latest phones in the current price range have Type-C connectivity and it is a little strange to see the phone with old USB charging option.
Oppo F3 Plus – Specifications and Features
The phone is powered by Snapdragon 652 processor and you will get 4 GB RAM on the phone for faster processing and multi-tasking. The phone has 64 GB of internal storage and the memory card slot supports the SD card up to 256 GB. In terms of software, you will get colour OS 3.0 linked with Android Marshmallow 6.0 in the phone. You will find different per-installed applications in the phone such as Facebook and Instagram and you will also find Oppo and Google Store to download more applications.
Oppo F3 Plus – Camera and Battery
The main highlight of the phone is its dual front camera. You will get an 8 MP sensor on the phone and the back camera has a 16 MP sensor with the f/2.0 aperture. The camera takes good photos even in low light. The phone comes with a non-removable 4000 mAh battery that has enough juice to last for a whole day.
Oppo phone comes with a price tag of 480 USD. Due to this high price tag, the phone falls into the premium category and has to compete with big guns of smartphone market such as LG G5, Galaxy A5 and OnePlus 3T. The phone offers a lot of functionalities to the user such as the sharp display, excellent battery, neat design and the good camera. A major setback in the phone is that you will find Android Marshmallow on the phone. The phone features are very good but the company is not giving timely software updates and thus decreasing the value of the phone.
