Oppo announced Oppo F3 Plus in April 2017 and the phone was out in public in May 2017. Oppo F3 Plus boasts a giant 6.0-inch Full HD display at a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels at 16:9 aspect ratio, making a pixel density of ~367 PPI. The display is rich and vibrant with good brightness levels. It is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, making it scratch resistant, In a unibody aluminium enclosure, this device feels oddly familiar.
Oppo F3 Plus is a plus-sized phone which weighs heavy at 185 grams, still manages to be very thin at 7.4mm. Oppo F3 Plus is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 supported by at least 4GB of RAM in the base model with 64GB onboard storage or 6GB RAM with 64GB onboard storage. The device packs a lot of power and performs great on a various day to day tasks. Oppo F3 Plus scored a respectable 4695 in multicore GeekBench and 1438 in the single core performance. When tested in the AnTuTu field, the device takes the benchmark score over 90k, by clocking at a whopping 91458. In the mid-range, the Oppo F3 Plus is a solid performer, with no performance issues in any task, surely it fetched water in front of flagships like Snapdragon 835, but in real life usage, you won’t experience much of a difference. The storage can be pumped up to 256GB via MicroSD through a hybrid slot.
Focusing on the cameras, Oppo F3 Plus showcases a great 16MP (f/1.7) rear sensor which has great low-light capabilities and a dual 16 MP + 8 MP, f/2.0 front sensor for selfies and stuff. The camera quality is great and the performs strongly in low light conditions too. With dual-pixel autofocus, It gets more accurate and noticeably faster. Dual cameras transformed smartphone photography and placing a pair of lenses at the front - not just the rear - may as well be the new cool, which didn’t become quite as much as was predicted. The camera performs excellently but the software doesn’t add to the performance, Oppo surely needs to work on is camera app, as its a pure mess. Images from this one are not oversaturated and exhibit good contrast levels. It has got a slight yellow tint, which is not much of a deal, dynamic range is decent, the sharpness is strong. The software noise reduction is way too strong and might ruin the photo so beware. HDR Auto is not much impressive as well. The detail levels are awesome and make up good photos in nearly all conditions. The selfie camera doesn’t have the bokeh effect but does some good background work with the wide angle lens. There’s also a beauty mode, of course, its Oppo and they are so-called selfie leaders but my advice would be to steer clear of it.
The Oppo F3 Plus is powered by 2-year old Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is rather shocking for a device aiming at upper mid-segment. And what’s charming is that the boys at Oppo aren’t working on the Nougat update, let alone Oreo. If that’s not enough insult to the software, you have ColorOS UI on top, that just messes things up more. Talking about ColorOS, as with all the Chinese OEMs, ColorOS unsurprisingly bears a lot of influence from Apple’s iOS and it is quite visible through the interface.
The Oppo F3 Plus has a giant 4000mAh battery that lasts a day with 7-8 hours of screen on time with a breeze. Charging on the F3 Plus is very fast, thanks to the VOOC charging support by Oppo. The device gets up from 0 to 58% in just 30 minutes. For what its worth, Oppo F3 Plus has the good old headphone jack, how does that sound? Also its worth mentioning that the device doesn’t have any kind of IP rating so keep it way back from liquids and dust. If you can get above the software relic we have here, Oppo F3 Plus is one of the best phone in that price bracket, certainly worth every penny.

OPPO F3 Plus was launched as a selfie centric phone though it performs great in both rear and front camera clicks. It certainly gives a smooth experience and multitasking with the only drawback being the Color OS running of old Android 6.0 when the world has moved to Android Oreo 8.0. If you ok with the old software, you can look to buy this if you are a camera fanatic.
