A Day with OPPO F3 Limited Edition Red | The Most Selfies I Have Taken in One Day


I would like to think that my friends and I had mastered the art of selfies even before the word was created and front-view camera smartphones became popular. My friends and I took many selfies using digital camera whenever we would travel - and we always get the best shots (meaning, everyone is in the frame).

Ironically, when I got a smartphone with a better front-view camera (even a mirror less camera with flip screen), I took less and less selfies.

It seems that things changed in just one day. I received an OPPO F3 (in Limited Edition Red) via #bloggermail and I took the most selfies in one day!

The Usual Unboxing OPPO F3 Red

I have my usual everyday gadgets with me; but last Thursday, I decided to take the OPPO F3 with me. It was my first time to try an OPPO smartphone. I was too excited to bring it with me that I forgot to fully unbox and put the Free Case included in the kit. :p

My friends know that I tend to be too clumsy when using a smartphone - dropping my phone every unsuspecting time. The OPPO F3 has 5.5-inch 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with pre-applied protective coating for unmatched durability and scratch-resistance. That works for me!

Remember those times whenever we would have a new gadget or phone, and we check the manual and read all its glorious features and play with them? Unfortunately, I no longer have the luxury of time to do it. :( I missed those days when I was in school and I could even compose a ring tone! Haha.

But OPPO F3 didn't make it hard for me to get acquianted with its features. Running with Android Marshmallow, it was a breeze to set up a new phone. What I instantly love about it is the fingerprint reader for securing the phone.

I love how sleek and easy-to-grip the OPPO F3 is. The first thing I noticed is the two front cameras! It has an option for a wider selfie/welfie! I am so happy! We can ditch the selfie stick and that saves me from being the designated selfie taker (because of my long arms!). 

Here are some of the selfies I took:

I met up with @mykesoon at Starbucks and hijacked his work station.

The Oppo F3 takes decent photos even in warm lights.

I took the MRT that day because Rodel suggested it is faster compared to taking a Grab Car.  I took the opportunity to take a selfie inside the jampacked train! I still look decent in the photo despite all the sweat. People probably found me weird to be taking photos inside MRT.

I sorely missed Uber. I salute all these ladies who can take MRT everyday. I cannot :( 

Not doing an Anne Curtis here, but just want to check if I would still look "fresh".

While waiting for Rod and Rodel, I had dinner at Figaro. The OPPO F3 takes decent photos of food. Maybe not as sharp as that of taken using mirrorless camera, but decent enough to be shared in your social media, hashtag #foodie.

Testing how well the OPPO F3 takes photos in low light, here is the photo taken inside Trinoma Cinema after watching "Ang Manananggal sa Unit 23B".  Oppo F3 has a built-in flash. But just like any other cameras, there is a struggle to take photos in dark environment. I tried using inside the cinema,  you got the picture right?

Before going home, we had diner at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Here are more #foodporn using OPPO F3.

I love how OPPO F3 gives bright and not grainy photos even when subject is taken in dim lights. I transferred the photo to my other camera and laptop to check that they do appear sharp as they were taken. Some smartphones only give a vivid and sharp photos because of how they appear on the screen. 


I really enjoyed using the new OPPO F3. Check out the comparison of Primary Selfie Camera vs Beeuty Camera!

Spot the difference?
I was wearing a really light lip tint and the Beauty Camera was able to highlight it making it me look fresh. 

Who won the best selfie?

#OOTD using OPPO F3

Showing you the most natural scenario (in the most unnatural pose haha) when we take random OOTDs and photos. The photo was taken indoor using OPPO F3 Red and I love how it vividly captured the colors (even highlighting my uneven hair color!).

After editing, it appeared to look like the same photo I have taken using a mirrorless camera.

Instant Filters!!!


I didn't get to explore the Instant Filters feature of Oppo F3 on my first day with it. I was so amazed to discover it! It has an option to take photos in Nostalgic mode, Tokyo vibe, Warm tones, etc. As you can see, the sample photos I uploaded for OPPO F3 are unedited and have no filter. (most I only added text and descriptions).

First Impressions + Quick Review | OPPO F3 Limited Edition Red

The OPPO F3 Red Limited Edition smartphone is a sleek mid-range smartphone that is perfect for taking photos and documenting everyday adventures. I really love the Wide Selfie feature. It is comforting to be no longer the designated "selfie" taker (although, I am not really a selfie person). I love the Instant Filters too! It allows you to take photos in different tones and vibe - no filter needed. Perfect for people like me who have weak eyes and don't have the patience to play with filters and edit photos. OPPO F3 Red is a dual - sim phone with expandable memory of up to 128GB.

I can't wait to take more photos and selfies with it.
