Design and Display

You will agree with me that what appeared to be an awkward notch has so much permeated the smartphone industry at the moment. Most smartphone brands having their own notched smartphone, some even more than one. The Oppo A3 is certainly in this category, although unlike the iPhone X, there is a little bottom bezel. It has a metallic unibody with a a single camera positioned at the top left corner in the typical Oppo fashion.

You have a good enough display for a mid-range smartphone and a top of the line one to be precise. Besides being crisp, it is also a sizeable display extending up to 6.2-inch thanks to the minimal bezel in place. This is backed up by 1080 X 2280 pixels resolution and a pixel density of 405 ppi, which are all flagship figures by the way.
