Oppo A3s at a glance
When was the Oppo A3s released? November 2018
What's new about the Oppo A3s? 6.2-inch screen, dual-array camera, 4,230mAh battery
How much does the Oppo A3s cost? $279

Packing a dual-lens camera, a 6.2-inch notched display and an enormous 4,230mAh battery, the Oppo A3s sets a new bar for what to expect from a budget smartphone.

In focusing almost exclusively on selling itself as the best of the best, Apple has effectively ignored a large chunk of the smartphone market. A lot of people simply can't afford the $1,000+ price tags that new and even older iPhones retail for, even when that cost is portioned out over the length of a fixed-term mobile phone contract.

It makes sense, then, that another company would step in to satisfy the demand for a smartphone that combines the sleek, streamlined design ethos of Apple with the affordability of the more open Android platform. That company is Oppo.

Oppo builds and sells smartphones for a wide range of budgets, but its most popular handsets tend to be those at the cheaper end of the spectrum. This is where the Oppo A3s lies. Retailing for a very agreeable $279, it packs a surprising number of premium smartphone features including a dual-array camera, an edge-to-edge 6.2-inch screen and support for facial unlocking. This makes it quite a compelling choice for folks wanting a phone that looks and feels like a premium device, yet won't cost a small fortune.

Design

  • Sleek design avoids the cheap look of many budget smartphones
  • Large edge-to-edge display is an impressive addition at this price point

Camera

  • A dual-lens camera at this price is seriously impressive
  • Should easily satisfy most photography needs

Performance

  • Snapdragon 450 processor delivers solid mid-range performance
  • A capable yet cost-efficient phone suitable for most needs

Battery

  • Huge 4,230mAh battery should have no issue surviving for a day or more on a single charge
  • No fast-charging support, sadly
