I attended the OPPO F3 Plus launch event in Delhi yesterday; it was yet another pleasant experience. We stayed there, woke up early in the morning, and attended the event in time… or we just got lucky. In this article, I’ll share my happiness and sadness with this smartphone; I love OPPO as a brand, and their innovation in ‘Selfie’ segment is truly something unique. But…
OPPO F3 Plus (#SelfieExpert) – What’s This Phone About?
I don’t have a device with me right now, but I spent like an hour with the device exploring the UI and selfie features. I took some photos indoor, so I may not be able to give a good overview of the camera at the moment, but it was good. I’m pretty sure we have a huge market for ‘Selfies,’ thanks to the awesome addiction of Snapchat and Instagram stories. Though I feel, we can still figure out some things, because spending 30k on this smartphone is okay, but alas, we got other good competitors as well.
What I like about OPPO F3 Plus
This phone has all the possible specifications you need as a daily driver. Dual SIM, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, 4GB RAM, VOOC Flash Charge, 4000mAh battery, and yes, the spotlight feature, selfie camera. I’m not a big fan of selfies, so I can’t just brag about this much, but the ‘front camera’ is one of the most used *thing* in a smartphone and OPPO is definitely trying their best to reach that spot and settle down there for a long period. I personally like the phone’s appearance, it reminds me of iPhone 6, but trust me, that is a very good thing.
What I hate about OPPO F3 Plus
As a consumer (who doesn’t take that much of selfies), this is going to be very hard for me to describe. But I should do that because I’m sure there will be plenty of people like me. First and foremost, it’s a big phone, it might be okay for selfie takers to get a clear view, but again, as a normal consumer, this is gonna affect me a lot. Yes, pros and cons for this. Secondly, I’m a big fan of USB Type-C, with all the major market players preferring Type-C technology for charging, I kinda feel bad to see them come with microUSB. No offense to microUSB, but it’s hard to carry two chargers or adapters. It’s not about how fast the phone charges, but the ‘adaptation’ is missing here.
30K (INR) is an amusingly decent price for this smartphone, like, I might not personally get this as my secondary device, but if you are into selfies or Snapchatting, then I’m pretty sure this device is something you should definitely consider.
