OPPO F3 Plus - Features, Specifications, Pros and Cons

The F3 Plus is OPPO’s latest smartphone, another selfie focused smartphone. The new OPPO F3 Plus is an upgrade to last year’s F1 Plus with better features like a dual front camera improved user experience and faster performance that is good for multitasking. Selfies aside, this time around the OPPO's F3 Plus also packs in a more powerful Snapdragon processor and is a tad bigger too.

Ever since the launch of Apple's iPhone 6, most brands have been using its design as a source for inspiration - including the OPPO F3 Plus, looks very similar to the iPhone 6, I am not surprised anymore. The F3 Plus runs Android Marshmallow with ColorOS version 3 skin on top of it

The OPPO F3 Plus is a large smartphone with a massive 6-inch display and weigh's 185g is also evenly distributed across the body of the phone. But, the phone is pretty slippery. On the top left corner at the back, you can find the 16MP camera and a single LED flash and sport dal cameras at the front - one of 16MP and one of 8MP.

The fingerprint scanner is placed on the home button below the display and it unlocks the phone incredibly fast. The power button is on the right whereas the volume buttons are on the left, and all the buttons offer decent tactile feedback. Also, the phone uses a hybrid SIM tray which means that you will have to sacrifice one of the SIM slots in case you want to add a memory card.

Coming to the display, the 6-inch panel offers full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution. OPPO has gone for an IPS LCD panel to Corning’s latest Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. However, the viewing angles and the sunlight legibility are good with an Eye Protection mode that works like Flux, which adds a warm tinge to the display and makes reading on it easier.
