3 Things We Didn’t Like About the OPPO F3 Plus

Time to Look at the Cons

Now that we’ve gotten the list of pros in favor of OPPO’s new Selfie Expert out of the way, it’s time to look at the cons. Just in case you want to read our full review for the OPPO F3 Plus, you can do so by clicking HERE.

Unwieldy Dimensions

We mentioned in the previous article that the screen size of the F3 Plus was a bit of a dual-edged sword and that’s because an increase in screen real estate would also mean that the phone would be larger too.

Most of the team have huge mitts for hands and we still had to do a fair bit of hand gymnastics to reach all the buttons and toggle all the on-screen options.

Questionable Battery Life

One thing that had us scratching our noggins for the Head-to-Head article with the Vivo V5 Plus was the fact that their battery benchmark result were close despite the F3 Plus having a bigger battery.

We get that it has a bigger screen, but we expected a little more battery life with the F3 Plus. Thank goodness for VOOC Flash Charge.

Dicey Price Tag

We hear you loud and clear in the comment section of each of our Facebook posts. There’s a tremendous outcry against the OPPO F3 Plus’ price tag that sits at Php 23,990, though we are getting a huge bump up in internals compared to the other members of the F series of smartphones. It remains true, however, that the pricing of the F3 Plus is a huge ask for most.

That wraps up this article on the cons for the OPPO F3 Plus. If you’d like to read all our content for the super-sized Selfie Expert, click on the links below:
