Oppo F3 Unboxing and first impressions


OPPO Mobile launched the F3, its latest selfie-focused smartphone with dual selfie cameras in the country a couple of weeks ago. The smartphone retails at Kshs.33,000 and started selling in the country on Tuesday, May 23rd.  The device is the smaller sibling of the Oppo F3 Plus. the design looks identical though the Oppo F3 sports slightly less exciting specs.

We won’t go much into the details in this Oppo F3 Unboxing article, just some photos of the device and a few functionalities.  More details will be coming up in our full review in the coming week. 

F3 1

Box Content

  • OPPO F3 smartphone in Gold color
  • Earphones
  • 2-pin charger (5V-2A)
  • Micro USB cable
  • Clear protective case
  • SIM ejector tool
  • User guide and warranty information


I love the packaging and the fact that apart from just the usual Charger, USB Cable, earphones, and user manuals, you also get a clear case for your unit.


Well, I guess Oppo took some inspiration from Apple when it decided to design the F3, but again that should surprise us.

F3 2

The Oppo F3 features a unibody metal design and glass body and packs a 5.5-inch 1080p 2.5D curved glass display, slightly smaller than the 6-inch display on the F3 Plus.

F3 4

The Oppo F3 is 7.3mm thick and weighs just 153 grams.


The Speaker grill,  USB port, and 3.5mm jack are located under the phone.


The power button is located on the right while the volume rocker is on the left. The dual SIM tray is also on the right and will allow you to use two SIMs along with a microSD card.



The Oppo F3  fingerprint sensor has also been embedded into the home button on the front, below the display and works really quick.



As we have mentioned before the Oppo F3 is a selfie focused phone. It features a 16-megapixel front-facing camera with 1/3.1-inch sensor and f/2.0 aperture along with an 8-megapixel secondary front camera with 120-degree wide-angle lens for capturing better group selfies, similar to the OPPO F3 Plus.
