After more than a month of using it, here’s our full review. 
 
 
 Big Screen Winner
 
Moreover, it has a fairly slim top, bottom, and side bezels for a budget device. The result? It has MORE screen real estate than most smartphones in its class.

It doesn’t have the sharpest screen resolution though. This device only has a screen with HD+ 1440 x 720 resolution which is equivalent to 260 ppi.


Fortunately, it is not pixelated in real life. As a matter of fact, it is one of the better performing screens at this price point for us. It has punchy yet accurate colors, good contrast, and nice viewing angles. It can also go quite bright for outdoor use.
 
On the display settings, you cannot turn off the notch though.
It has 5 points of touch in total. That’s usable enough for typing and playing games.
 
 
 
Audio Quality
On the audio part, the A3s has a single loudspeaker below. Lows are not that noticeable, but it has decent mids and highs. It also has crisp details overall. It could also go quite loud, but with noticeable distortion and blown-out details. It is decent for the price.
 
Microphone quality for calls are okay. It is mostly loud and clear. It has decent performance for audio recordings as well.
 
For headphones, quality is average. It is decent, but far from great. It can produce flat audio with clean mids. Driving power is alright.
 
 
Battery Life
Battery life usage is equally impressive too. It can really last for 2-3 days on a single charge! Our usual heavy usage includes using a lot of social media apps like Facebook, taking photos and selfies, watching YouTube videos, and more.

Charging time is at 2 hours and 45 minutes. It also has the usual power saving modes by OPPO to make its battery life last longer.
 
Good cameras
 

The camera displays various function icons. It is convenient to use. And there are several shooting modes to choose from, such as normal shooting mode, Portrait mode, and Panorama mode.
