OPPO Joy 3 hands-on, first impressions

OPPO launched earlier today the Joy 3 Android smartphone which features a 4.5-inch display, 8 megapixel camera, and powered by a MediaTek quad-core CPU, 1GB RAM, and Android KitKat. Check out our first impressions of the OPPO Joy 3 below.

The Joy 3 is the latest smartphone that OPPO has released after the launch of the R1x, Neo 5 and Joy Plus last month. It’s a fairly small device with a simple design.

Found on the front is the 4.5-inch IPS display with 854 x 480 resolution or equal to a pixel density of 217ppi. Colors are not that punchy but has decent viewing angles. Located above the display are the earpiece, light sensor, and 2 megapixel camera. Down below are three capacitive buttons for navigation.

On the right is the power / lock button, while on the left is the volume rocker. Both buttons are plastic with a chrome finish. Right up top is the headset jack, while down at the bottom are the microUSB port and microphone. The device is surrounded by a silver band to add a premium look.

Flip the device on its back and you will find the 8 megapixel camera, LED flash, OPPO branding, and the speaker. The removable backplate has two kinds of finish – glossy for the white model, and matte for the gray.

On hand, the Joy 3 is easy to grip due to its small size. It’s a bit chunky at almost 9mm but has a comfortable heft at 135g.

The OPPO Joy 3 is now available for Php6,490.

    Nothing joyful about this phone. kahit Sony at Starmobile mahihiya sa kakapalan ng Oppo mag presyo.

    Samantala, ang Cherry Mobile ay nasa Myanmar na! (Cherry Moblle One – Android One phone). Seriously Oppo, nahihibang ka.

    Wow talaga sa price! Engot lang bibili nito. Ang pangit kaya ng phone. Ang taba ng bezels sa side! Maliit ang screen tapos low specs. Eh presyo na yan ng alcatel flash eh. Tsk tsk. Itama nyo naman ang presyo OPPO.

    Wala na talaga. Talo na sa pricing talo pa sa specs. OPPO , FYI lang po. Walang nang bagong cellphone ngayon na naglalabas ng 1G na RAM. 2G na po ang uso.

  7. Easy F says:

    Magiging magalang ba ako pag ginamit ko ito?

  8. PeaceLovingPerson says:

    Hi guys, let us respect OPPO for they respect other competitor. If you don’t want it then it’s ok but don’t be to bashful about it maybe they have reasons. Don’t judge without testing the phone. Let us share our love to everybody. Peace. Thanks

    As usual another trash product from Oppo. It’s sad how stupid their product team is.

    • Zobel says:

      What’s even more sad is that there are people who actually support them when they don’t deserve it. In my area they have a prominent presence in malls, giant billboards along major thoroughfares., etc., though last year I prevented someone I know from getting an oppo unit. He bought a cherry instead.

  11. Sam says:

    Mas ok pa LG Leon 5,990 PHP lang

    I’ve been using this phone for about 5 months and the only problem I had was its low ROM (4gb) which I resolved by transferring the other apps and/or files that could be transferred to SD card.
    Although it has only 1gb RAM, it is still fast and seldom lags. It’s faster than my IPAD mini which is a year old.
    I bought this just for call and text but I was surprised that it can do more. I don’t do games here and use the productivity apps here seldom because I have my IPAD for that. But whenever I use the productivity apps, i am not disappointed because they are fast and do not lag. Battery lasts more than a day.
    Some gestures are very helpful and some are annoying that can be turned off.
    I haven’t experienced any issue aside from the low memory which I found a solution anyway.
    Maybe, I just don’t over-used my phone because I have the IPAD for that.
    BTW, it is also durable.
    Camera is also nice.
    When I was looking for a good phone to use, i went to different shops, and asked the salespersons which brand among CM, MP, LENOVO, ALCATEL, and OPPO is better, they recommend the last one due to its durability.
