What We Liked

  • The F3 Plus continues the Oppo tradition of excellent build quality, finish and design, with a well-designed metal unibody
  • Rounded edges make it relatively comfortable to hold
  • The 6-inch display is beautiful, sharp, and really dominates the front of the phone, thanks to thin borders on the sides
  • One of the advantages of lugging around a massive smartphone is the ability to really enjoy watching videos on such a large screen
  • The fingerprint sensor is quick for unlocking the device, and just like before, you can use it for other purposes like locking apps and files
  • ColorOS UI works well, is well optimised in terms of performance, and has aesthetics similar to iOS
  • Good overall performance backed by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC, and 4GB of RAM (though benchmark numbers might not be as good as what's possible with a top-end Snapdragon 821 SoC but you’d be hard pressed to actually tell the difference in daily usage)
  • Very good set of dual front cameras - unlike other dual front cameras, the second front camera here isn’t used for depth of field - instead, it has a wide-angle lens for group selfies, which is a much more practical idea that's likely to have a wider appeal (you can easily switch between the 2 cameras - one for individual selfies, and the other for group selfies)
  • Overall, pictures from the front cameras are detailed, and even have good low-light performance - this is arguably the best selfie camera in this price bracket
  • Rear camera is good too - daylight shots specially have very good detail and saturated colours that really pop - though the camera it's definitely not as good as the class-leading OnePlus 3/3T
  • The single speaker is quite powerful, and sound is loud and fairly distinct
  • Decent call quality
  • Very good battery life - lasts well beyond a single day of regular usage
  • Supports Oppo’s VOOC fast charging technology

What We Didn't

  • Striking looks aside, there’s still no getting around the fact that this is a big phone, and quite heavy too
  • The buttons on the sides are a bit of a reach, even for someone with large hands
  • Colors on the display are pretty heavily saturated - which might not be to everyone's taste
  • Misses out on the modern USB standard - USB Type-C
  • No FM Radio
  • No NFC support
