It always amazes me to know a new phone line that created a different feature that cannot be found from the rest, and OPPO brand is definitely on the list.
After the successful local launch of the OPPO R1x, Neo 5, and Joy Plus, OPPO Philippines aims to continue transforming the mobile landscape with the debut of its latest bang-for-the-money phone, the OPPO Joy 3. Flaunting an upscale design that strikes an ideal balance between style and function and running OPPO’s Android-based ColorOS 2.0 operating system on a quad-core processor, the Joy 3 promises a quality smartphone experience for all pockets.
At the launch held at Lugang Cafe in SM MOA, we were introduced to OPPO Joy 3.
Looks Great, Feels Great in the Hand
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.
A Camera That’s a Joy to Use
The OPPO Joy 3 boasts a 5-megapixel rear camera with OPPO’s Pure Image 2.0+ technology, resulting in a camera system that’s both intuitive and fun. 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).
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 recognisable. 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.
The OPPO Joy 3 retails for only P6,490. For more information, visit http://www.oppo.com/ph/products/joy3.
