After the launching three new phones in the Philippine market recently, OPPO R1x, Neo 5, and Joy Plus, OPPO Philippines has another one under its sleeves, this time, a more affordable smartphone, the OPPO Joy 3.
The OPPO Joy 3 runs on an Android-based ColorOS 2.0. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor that is capable of multitasking apps and running games.
The OPPO Joy 3 has a 5-megapixel rear camera with f/2.4 aperture with OPPO’s Pure Image 2.0+ technology, resulting in a camera system that’s both intuitive and fun, suitable for daily image capturing use. The Color OS camera app itself has been optimized for the best possible image quality regardless of lighting conditions. And then there’s the variety of filter effects and shooting modes available on the Joy 3, including Beautify (softens your features to help you look your best), Double Exposure (overlaps two photos to create a unique visual effect), and GIF (converts multiple shots taken in quick succession into an animated image format).
Looks Great, Feels Great in the Hand
Not to be outdone in the design department, the OPPO Joy 3 features a solid metallic frame that runs around the edges of the device and a smooth rear cover in two color options – white exudes elegance, while a matte-gray finish brings a fashionable edge. Perhaps more importantly, the size of the phone lends well to one-handed operation and allows users to easily reach the corners of the screen with either hand. OPPO has built a good reputation for its attention to design details, and the Joy 3 is further proof of this.
Powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, the OPPO Joy 3 is perfectly suited for multitasking and running games. Thisalso ensures smooth performance in day-to-day usage, without the lag associated with most entry-level devices. The Joy 3 offers the sort of smartphone experience you’d expect from a more expensive phone.
ColorOS 2.0: Live Bright
The OPPO Joy 3 runs OPPO’s proprietary ColorOS 2.0 on top of Android – the operating system of choice among most smartphone and tablet makers. ColorOS combines speed, efficiency, and stability and brings pixels to life, populating your home screen with contemporary icons that are instantly recognizable.
It also supports screen-off and screen-on gestures, allowing you to wake the device by simply double-tapping the screen, play or pause music by sliding two fingers up or down, or jump directly to the camera app by drawing a circle, among other things.
The preloaded ColorOS Security Center, on the other hand, strengthens the phone’s security features. Indeed, the ColorOS was designed with beauty and practicality in mind.
