Android One S3 Photos, Specs, and Reviews

Created date: 02/24/2018, 23:22:11, Updated date: 04/04/2020, 23:16:27

A thorough review of the characteristics and specifications of the Android One S3. We provide a detailed evaluation of the phone in terms of usability – including ease of holding, screen visibility, performance, image quality, and multitasking capabilities – as well as functionality, looking at the battery and camera.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Android One S3

The camera function of Android One S3

The Android One S3 has a 13.1 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Android One S3 comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Android One S3

The Android One S3 has a relatively large battery with 2700mAh. The Android One S3 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Android One S3's size

The Android One S3 is 2.8inches (71mm) wide, 5.7inches (144mm) tall, and 0.33inches (8.5mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Android One S3, it weighs about 5.0352oz (143g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Android One S3, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Android One S3's screen

The Android One S3 has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the Android One S3 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of Android One S3

The processing power of the Android One S3 is, at 1.4GHz×8(OctaCore), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The Android One S3 has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Android One S3 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Android One S3's storage capacity

The Android One S3 has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Android One S3 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Android One S3

The Android One S3 is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
