OPPO Joy 3– a budget phone powered by 1.3ghz quad core processor, 5MP camera, 4GB storage and ColorOS 2.0 (SRP PHP 6490)


For the 1st time ever, we have now an appearance of OPPO smartphone here in my blog. Thanks to Alora Uy- Guerrero for inviting me to check out the new line of OPPO smartphone with an affordable price. I’m not familiar yet for the OPPO’s tech but I’m very impressed that they have their own built in app for password protection in every app and also a special gesture feature that can launch an app in the OPPO Joy 3.

There’s this OPPO's Android-based ColorOS 2.0 operating system, it helps the smartphone to run the gesture features, optimize the arrangement of apps, active the device via tapping on the screen, play music via sliding a finger across the screen, and over all speeds up the users navigation when using the device.

The ColorsOS 2.0 also helps the camera features of OPPO Joy 3. It added lots of filtering features and also lets the user to change the ISO and also Aperture of the 5MP rear camera. Enjoy the Beautify, GIF and double exposure camera function via OPPO Joy 3.


It comes with a smooth rear cover in two color options – white exudes elegance and  matte-gray finish

Size and thickness of the body is just right, even its just a 4.5 inches screen, it can already gives a good purpose for mobile device users to fit this in their pocket without any hassle.


The white version is an eye candy, its neat and smooth. I like the smooth edges and also the solid metallic body support that can protect the device in breaking when it falls on the ground.


I’m not familiar with the ColorOS 2.0, but the screen makes the OPPO phone very unique


Easy to hold


Very light weight


The rear camera looks big….. for a 5MP


Front camera is just 2 MP.


I’ve noticed tha the device has no earphone jack. The only thing you can use an earphone is to use a micro USB adapter with earphone jack plugs.


Front camera…looks good for a 2MP


Dual sim.
3G only



White and Matte Gray colors



Security feature via ColorOS 2.0


You can assign also a password on every app.
This is good for parents who want to have a parental control in an app, so that kids can’t use apps while the parents is away from the phone.


Choose an app to add a password access.
