Oppo has built itself a bit of reputation when it comes to phones that specialize in selfies. It’s latest offering, the F3 Plus, launched in Pakistan today for Rs. 49,899 and we’re bringing you an exclusive first look at the device.
Similar to the previous F-family devices, Oppo has not cut any corners when it comes to presentation. The phone comes in a sturdy box which is covered with a soft cardboard cover.
Inside the box, we find a plastic tray for the Oppo F3 and underneath is a box which contains leaflets and a transparent silicon back cover for the phone. The compartment below contains nice-looking Oppo earbuds stashed cleverly to save space.
Alongside the earbuds, there is an Oppo’s wall charger which supports VOOC fast charging, a feature that was lacking in its predecessors. To finish it up, there is a charging cable and SIM ejection tool.
The complete accessories that come with Oppo F3 Plus include:
- 1 x Vooc Flash Charge Cable (Micro USB)
- 1 x Fast Charging Adapter
- 1 x Oppo 3.5mm Handsfree
- 2 x Replacement Earbuds Pair
- 1 x Silicon Back Cover
- 1 x SIM Ejection Tool
- 1 x Warranty Card
- 1 x Quick Guide
The Oppo F3 Plus has a lot of resemblance with the previous phones in the series. There is a slick metal exterior, which is of really high quality and has a nice finish.
The front of the phone is very clean and reminds me of the iPhone. Keeping in line with the latest trends, the bezel of the phone has been significantly reduced. The F3 Plus sports a 6-inches Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. Oppo F3 Plus also comes with a factory pre-installed screen protector.
One of the things I don’t like about Oppo phones (F-series, case in point) is the lack of tactile feedback on their fingerprint sensors. It’s styled like a button so why can’t I click it like it’s one? Anyways, that’s just a pet peeve of mine and you might prefer it this way.
Speaking about the fingerprint scanner itself, it is one of the fastest I have ever used. It brings you to the home screen almost instantaneously.
The back of Oppo F3 Plus looks great. The body is made out of metal and has plastic antenna strips on top and bottom of the phone, with slightly lighter color scheme.
Since it has a metallic body, it doesn’t provide much grip in hand without the plastic cover.
On one side, you can find the volume rocker and opposite to it, there is the power button and SIM slot. There is absolutely nothing on top of the phone apart from one noise canceling microphone. 3.5mm headphones jack, speaker and charging slot are all present on the bottom of the phone.
Here’s a brief look at the specs of the phone. We’ll be doing a detailed review so keep a close eye on this space!
