A lot has changed since the evolution of the smartphone from mobile network signal to specs and features. Giant names offer a much advanced in smartphone technology that are truly impressive but that doesn’t make the other players to slug on their sheets.
OPPO has proven its worth as soon as it entered the market. More than what’s under the hood, that continuously keeps up with the latest technology, OPPO has perfected its camera phone specs earning its branding worth the “Selfie Expert” in the field of mobile photography.
This is an honest impression of the latest flagship device, the OPPO F3, that was launched Q2 of this year.
Looking at its design and the features that comes with it, the OPPO F3 is one of the smartphone in the midrange category that won’t break the bank. Less affordable than its predecessor, OPPO F3 Plus, but with a stylish design and hard-rocking specs that is perfect for anyone who are looking for a premium phone on a budget.
As soon as we received the test unit that was allocated for our review, we immediately fell in love with the OPPO F3.
We like the perfect grip feel of the OPPO F3 and its size is just right for a medium-sized hand just like ours. OPPO F3 is not too big or too compact, it’s perfectly sized at 5.5 inches.

Now we go to our favorite part. Mobile photography.
We use the OPPO F3 smartphone not just for taking calls but also for taking photos. And with the popularity of selfie shots, no mobile phone users are immuned from taking selfies everyday.
Which takes us to OPPO F3. The front-facing camera is power driven with a 16MP camera lens with Bokeh and Beauty features that makes a ‘wow’ selfie shots.
The front camera also have an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera settings that will make groufie much easier to shoot.
OPPO F3 on the other hand boosts with a 13MP rear camera lens to capture every moment that will make you feel that you are shooting like a pro.
The camera goes with a LED Flash.
We love the crisp and vivid colors the OPPO F3 cameras bring during anytime of the day.
Playing games or using the OPPO F3 extensively is not a problem because it has a big battery capacity fit for the acyive lifestyle of every user.
