Oppo A3s, which was launched in mid-September of this year finally received a price cut in Nepal. Considering its price and specs, the smartphone was overpriced previously. And because of the same reason, it had also been on our list of phones not to buy. But with this price drop, the phone has been somewhat affordable. But sadly, the price drop is limited to the 3/32GB variant only.
Oppo A3s Overview
The OPPO A3s spec-sheet looks quite compelling at the price point. For less than Rs. 20,000 (for the base variant), you can get the Octa-core Snapdragon 450 chipset for performance. That’s the same chip available in the Samsung Galaxy A6+ and Samsung Galaxy J8. Oppo A3s combines 2/3 GB RAM to the processor for a good performance. Also, it has a whopping 4230 mAh battery that can easily last you for more than a day. It comes with 16/32 GB internal storage option in Nepal but has an expandable storage option via microSD for up to 256 GB. All that rests under a smooth glossy design that looks premium.
The phone sports a large 6.2″ IPS LCD screen with HD+ resolution of 720 x 1520 with 271 PPI. Also, the bezels are only 2.05 mm thin, making it a super full screen! For the price, a super full screen with that resolution seems good enough. However, as it’s with Oppo, the highlight of the phone is the camera. Oppo A3s packs a dual camera setup at the back, a 13 MP + 2 MP sensor for vivid and crisp pictures. The 2 MP lens helps you use shallow depth effect for sharper photos and wide-angle pictures. The selfie camera is an 8 MP sensor integrated with AI Smart Beauty technology, that allows you to take stunning selfies! The phone runs on Android Oreo 8.1 with Color OS 5.1 on top.

Another interesting feature the phone packs is it’s “Music Party” function. With this, you can open up a hotspot and connect multiple smartphones with the Color OS, to play the same track on all phones. Now that’s a fun solution if you want to ramp up your music, isn’t it? And talking about the color options, the Oppo A3s debuts in two different colors – Red and Dark Purple.
