The OPPO F3 Plus is a cool smartphone manufactured by OPPO as part of its “F series” and was launched in India way back in March this year with a lower variant of the smartphone, the Oppo F3, released just this month. The OPPO F3, of course, packs many spectacular features. If you thought the Oppo F3 was the definition of a smartphone, wait to be wowed by the Oppo F3 Plus.
Oppo F3 Plus Review
The OPPO F3 plus runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and comes with a custom ColorOS 3.0 on top. This isn’t the latest software version of Android available, but we expect that Oppo would push a Nougat update to the smartphone soon, even as the F3 Plus is its flagship smartphone so far in the year 2017.
Design & Display
The OPPO F3 plus comes with a rather large display of a 6-inch 2.5D curved glass screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It has a fingerprint sensor that would work even with moist fingers embedded into its home button. All these are enclosed in a unibody metal design. The F3 plus weighs 185g and measures 163.63 * 80.8 * 7.35 mm.
Memory & Performance
The F3 plus is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor with Adreno 510 GPU. It has a RAM of 4GB and a 64GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card so users can rest assured of a smooth usage experience.
The camera features of the OPPO F3 are simply amazing as it sports a 16MP front-facing camera which has a 1/3.1-inch sensor and f/2.0 aperture alongside an 8MP secondary front camera with a 120-degree wide-angle lens for capturing better group selfies.
The OPPO F3 also flaunts a 16MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture, a Sony IMX398 sensor and dual PDAF technology. I can imagine the look on your face as you read this…Wonderful, isn’t it?
The OPPO F3 is surely not giving its competitors an easy time as it is not lacking either in its battery capacity. With a 4000mAh LI-Ion battery that’s enabled with VOOC Flash Charge and can guarantee 2 hours of talk-time with just 5minutes of charging, users are sure to be on, ALWAYS.
Connectivity & Hardware
The OPPO F3 comes with a Dual SIM setup that supports the 4G LTE network. It is also enabled for Voiceover LTE (VoLTE) which implies that users can make voice calls and perform USSD operations over the 4G network. It also features Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth version 4.1, USB OTG and GPS.
