“The OPPO A3s is one of the very budget offerings that offer a Super Full Screen display”

OPPO recently launched the A3s in the Indian market, which marks the brand’s debut in the budget segment by shipping a Super Full Screen. The latest offering from the company comes with a compelling price tag and offers all the goodies that OPPO is known for, including good cameras. The overall package that the OPPO A3s offers, makes it one of the best smartphones under Rs 12,000. If you are wondering why we think so, read on ahead.

A battery that goes on and on


You might have the most loaded smartphone on the market, but if it has a poor battery, everything else comes to naught. However, that’s not the case with the OPPO A3s as the phone comes with a beefy 4,230mAh battery. The brand claims that on a full charge, the handset can easily last up to 18 hours under normal usage. Moreover, the 14nm chipset powering the device also ensure efficient power consumption. According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 450 powering the smartphone is designed to use 30 percent less battery, which translates to approximately four more hours of battery life.

An immersive display


As mentioned earlier, the OPPO A3s is the debut budget smartphone from the brand to come with a cut-out up top. The handset features a 6.2-inch In-Cell IPS LCD screen with 19:9 aspect ratio, which the brand is referring to as “Super Full Screen” display. The phone comes with minimal bezels to offer an immersive viewing experience. Further, the bezel-less form factor of the handset ensures that the feels compact despite packing a massive display.

Two is better than one when it comes to the camera


The OPPO A3s comes equipped with a dual-camera module on the rear panel featuring a 13-megapixel snapper with a 2-megapixel secondary camera. The secondary camera helps in capturing the depth information to help with portrait imaging, with the focus on the subject. The brand has also equipped the camera app with features like time-lapse, panorama and HDR mode.

The front camera on the OPPO A3s is an 8-megapixel unit. It comes with all the features that are offered by the rear snappers, as well as a beautify mode for enhancing selfies, which takes us to the next point…

The AI Beauty for the digital make up


OPPO’s AI Beauty mode has already shown its prowess in the brand’s pricier phones, and it’s available on the A3s as well. The mode has been designed to use a global database of selfies to identify shapes and facial structures to enhance selfies. Further, the handset can identify the person’s skin tone and type, gender, and age among other aspects by identifying over 200 facial recognition spots. That’s not all, AI Beauty 2.0 can also detect whether it’s an individual’s selfie or group, in order to ensure best selfies across every situation.

Handy software features


The OPPO A3s boots Android 8.1 Oreo-based ColorOS 5.1 out of the box. The custom interface from the brand comes loaded with a number of features such as a Music Party feature, which lets users connect multiple smartphones to play the same song simultaneously. The handset also has a Game Space feature, which is designed to optimise the gaming experience by adjusting settings like power consumption, notification banners, and brightness.

All in all, the OPPO A3s comes across as an all-round package. The smartphone comes in 2GB RAM + 16GB variant and will set you back by Rs 10,999. So what are you waiting for?
