Oppo A3s Specs and Price

We’ve seen some features in high end smarphones trickle down to budget smartphones, from the dual camera showing its face to some even going ahead to sport quad cameras and now some of the new entry-level smarphones now have a notched display.

The Oppo A3s is made this way, to have a likeness to premium smarphones with it’s dual rear camera, 18:9 aspect ratio, display notch and an almost all screen front. However, the smartphone has entry-level specs which makes it an entry level smartphone.

Design and Display

As discussed earlier, the smartphone has been incorporated with recent trends in the smartphone industry which makes it look more appealing to the eye. Nonetheless, being made of plastic gives the smartphone away when you’re up close but it also makes it lighter. There’s an audio jack a feature that you can’t be too sure of on smarphones nowadays and a fine finish that is available in red and deep purple.

Want to know how it feels like to use a smartphone with notched display and don’t want to part with too much or you just want to try it out anyway. This might be the place to start without having to pay much. That aside, the display here is quite large meaning you can watch movies enjoyably on but not with much clarity considering the low HD+ resolution.

Battery and Camera

If you are gunning for a budget smartphone with a decent battery life at least on paper, the Oppo A3s might just be the smartphone for you. It has a massive 4, 230mAh battery capacity and specs that does not demand much in terms of power consumption. For charging, there is a MicroUSB port and no fast charge which means it will take some time to reach full charge.

Entry-level smartphones are not known for their camera prowess which points out what to expect on the Oppo A3s. Not withstanding, the smartphone does not entirely falter in its capturing abilities with the dual rear 13MP pus 2MP camera and its decent 8MP selfie shooter with AI beautification.

Hardware and Software

In the midst of it all, the smartphone is powered by a decent eight core Qualcomm SoC. The Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 processor handles basic tasks with ease and will serve you day to day with minimal hiccups. However, heavy application or tasks has every tendency of causing glitches.

The rest of the spec sheet is also of budget status, with just 16GB of internal storage which has been reduced by the system software pre-installed. Speaking of system software, the smartphone boots Android 8.1 Oreo and multitasks using 2GB RAM space.
