OPPO F3 Plus Review

You first saw here on one of the two upcoming smartphones from the F series of OPPO. Recently, OPPO Philippines gave us a chance to have a life check on on their first Android handset with dual selfie camera. Here's the OPPO F3 Plus

These are the front and back views of OPPO F3 Plus box


Here is the phone plus the micro USB to USB port and the VOOC charger which is has the same input/output as to the OPPO F1 Plus (I had a chance to test a VOOC charger from F1 Plus and it worked as the same as to the F3 Plus plug). Unfortunately, our review unit does not have the earphones and protective phone case. In OPPO Philippines' response, expect that the case was exactly made from what you can expect from some of their other models like on the OPPO F1s

The three-antenna lines on the top and bottom parts of the phone is the main difference from the sea of their other devices that almost looked the same. The reason behind it is the stronger WiFi capture. As expected, the rounded sides and a bit matte finish of the F3 Plus gave additional grip. In reality, even me with a big hand, this model will need two hands in most of the time in terms of navigation and multi tasking. The display is very good but based on my observation, the F1 Plus has a more OGS-like feel.

In connectivity- phone calls, texts, mobile data, WiFi and GPS were a-ok on the number of days that I used this as a daily driver. When I found out that it's processor was made from a 28 nm architecture, no surprise for me that using LTE alone gave me a warm feeling of using it.

On benchmarks, good thing they have enough sensors that they put in with seven. The Antutu score gave me at over 92,000



On battery, I can manage it for one full day with 5 1/2 hours of screen on-time on mixed usage like mobile surfing, camera, photo editing, social media, email and some games. On VOOC charging technology, the phablet can be fully charged for less than 1 hour and 45 minutes but the device was quite weird for my experience. OPPO promises that with the said feature, the phone will not be heating. It did not happen on my F1 Plus review but not in the case of the F3 Plus

The main camera with f/1.7 aperture and the main selfie camera got some very good impressions on my part from various lighting conditions. The wide-angle secondary camera was a-ok for either natural or good enough lighting but trying to get a groufie (I tried it for about 20 people for a family reunion), there are some instances that it will struggle on mixed lighting conditions.

Extras: If there is one problem that I noticed that you may not see in others, I noticed that the hybrid SIM tray was kinda when you put in the SIM card and micro SD. Sometimes, a special way for me to put in those things when I used this phablet during my review days. I hope that it is only an isolated issue

We are just less than 24 hours as we wil gonna met it's possible smaller brother - the OPPO F3. The processor was quite strong for a high-end midrange device but I felt that putting in a Snapdragon 625 processor with more efficient 14 nm archtecture will be a better choice and will give more justice for it's asking price. The camera, fast charging, big battery and display quality are the aces of this phablet. Some may hate the big 6 inch display. The SRP of Php 23,990 was a bit high for the overall specs to me. OPPO F3 Plus for me is at 4 out of 5
