The Mirror 3 is OPPO’s latest addition to their smartphone range. Although it is a mid tier phone, the Mirror 3 is crafted with the same precision and attention to detail as OPPO’s premium tier phones, using only top quality build components, except available for purchase at a lower price.
I got to spend a couple of weeks with the Mirror 3, and found it great value for money. The first thing that one will notice about the Mirror 3 is its classy and compact appearance. It sports a 4.7inch screen and is a lightweight device at only 126 grams, fitting nicely into my pocket. For someone whose previous phone was the OPPO N1 (which is almost the size of most tablets) the Mirror 3 comes as a pleasant surprise, fitting perfectly and comfortably into the palm of my hand.
The Mirror 3 also comes with Fast-Charge, which charges the phone approximately 60% faster than the industry standard. It takes only 90 minutes for the phone to be fully charged.
If I have any complaints about the phone, it will be the fact that it does lag a little when I run a photo through 3 or 4 different image editing software. Not a problem for most people, I guess. I just have the habit of editing my photos before posting them up on social networks. Luckily for those of you Instagram addicts who like doing that (but are not as hardcore as I am when it comes to image editing), the Mirror 3’s front-facing 5mp camera has a unique Beautify function, which adds a filter to your photos as you take it. The Mirror 3 also comes with the latest version of OPPO’s proprietary imagine technology, Pure Image 2.0+, which was previously only available in OPPO’s top-tier phones such as the N3 and the R5.
The OPPO Mirror 3 retails at $349 and can be purchased at the OPPO Concept Store in Suntec City Mall, Tower 3. If you are a student, you can purchase the phone at a discounted price of only $329.
