What’s Up With The “Selfie Expert”?
For a smartphone to capture the attention of people in
these days, it has to have an exceptionally unique selling point or a cutting-edge feature to make it stand out in a wide array of smartphones.
Is the Oppo F3 Plus fit with its branding as a “Selfie Expert?” Is it worth your money? Let’s take a closer look and see for ourselves.
The Looks and Quality
The Oppo F3 Plus is made with metal and features a white façade and huge top and bottom bezels. The face of the phone comes with with a 6-inch Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen and slim 1.78 mm side bezels, offering a very smooth and simple look.
The dual front cams can be easily viewed at the upper part of the unit, while the large home button – which also services as a fingerprint sensor – is located at the bottom side.
At the back of the phone is the camera and you’ll see the flash on the upper left side of the phone’s back. Unlike the ugly thick white bands that can be seen in other phones, the Oppo F3 Plus has a cool design for its antenna lines, which are 0.3 mm each.
How It Performs
With this phone, the apps run smooth and multi-tasking is very easy due to the phone’s 4GB of RAM (same as in high-end phones). The 64 GB of onboard storage can be increased up to 256 GB through a microSD, which can be placed in the phone’s second SIM slot.
Overall, Color OS runs sleek and is one of the finest looking Android skins in the market. However, some of its functions are left wanting.
The main highlight of the Oppo F3 Plus is the use of dual front cameras. It has a 16-megapixel camera that uses a 1/3-inch sensor, F2.0 aperture, which captures clear, vivid shots with very low noise. The other camera boasts of an 8-megapixel 120-degree wide-angle cam, which can shoot a much broader view than the usual 80-degree cameras.
The phone features a large 4000 mAh battery that can withstand whole day use.
Power-saving features and the 1080p screen certainly help lessen battery use. Oppo’s VOOC Flash Charge is a stand out feature. The usual screen on time is around 5 hours if used regularly. The phone charges fast from 10% to 90% within an hour.
The Chinese phone company has created a very capable phone with a combo of high- and middle tier specs. The camera is, for sure, its standout feature, capturing great images on its rear camera and very clear “selfies” through its dual front cameras. The Oppo F3 Plus is also best suited for watching videos due to its large screen.
The Oppo F3 Plus sells at PHP23,990.00, which is quite expensive for its specs.
This phone is for individuals looking for a phone that has premium looks, nice quality of built, an excellent camera and a big screen.
