Review of the product design of the Oppo Joy 3

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an Oppo Joy 3, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Oppo Joy 3 around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The Oppo Joy 3 is a size that can easily be held in one hand. Even when holding it along with other things such as a wallet, its size makes it difficult to drop accidentally.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Oppo Joy 3 in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

The Oppo Joy 3 has a size that makes it relatively easy to keep and take out. While it sometimes get caught when sticking out of the pocket, I think it is just a matter of getting used to it.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

The Oppo Joy 3 is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Oppo Joy 3 by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The Oppo Joy 3 is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The Oppo Joy 3 is light, and I think it can be operated with one hand for a long time without feeling tired. However, it may be a bit heavy for those who are not used to using smart phones. Also, as it is not a heavy smart phone, its weight does not really change when a case is added.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

Even when used with one hand, the Oppo Joy 3 has a size which allows buttons on the edges of the display to be operated. However, people with small hands may lose their grip if they try to press the buttons at the edges.

The size of the buttons on the App

Overall, the operating buttons on the Oppo Joy 3 feel small. This makes it easy to mistap, but usually this won't be a problem once you get used to it. The operating buttons in games are generally small so you may feel like it is hard to control when you're playing.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

You can type easily on the Oppo Joy 3 even with a tight grip. Even when typing at high speeds you can type freely without having to loosen your grip.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

If you aren't being careful it is really easy to mistype when using the Oppo Joy 3 with two hands since the buttons are so small. In addition, typing at high speeds is pretty difficult and I can't say its very suited for it.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Oppo Joy 3 is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

In general, the Oppo Joy 3 displays characters and pictures in sizes that are easy to see. While some characters may look small depending on the app, they are not really difficult to see. Therefore, it can be said to be more than adequate for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.

Ease of reading sentences

The Oppo Joy 3 displays fonts relatively nicely, and even small characters can be displayed nicely. While people with good eyes can see the jagged outlines of characters when they look at the display up close, this does not make the characters difficult to see. It can be said to be a display that is adequately suitable for reading text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The Oppo Joy 3 can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.

Ease of writing sentences

When typing a sentence with the Oppo Joy 3 the keyboard obscures the screen to some extent. While I do feel like there isn't enough work space to allow for long sentences, for short sentences it isn't really an issue.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

When using the Oppo Joy 3 for calls, emails, or for chatting the processing power can be insufficient, and you can experience slowdowns as a result. When using apps it felt like the motion would get caught up which was a bit stressful. For ordinary more relaxed use this slowing isn't at a level that would bother you, but its performance is not suited for fast control.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

The performance felt lacking when using the internet and SNS. Sometimes the apps felt like they were running slowly. If I kept using it when that happened apps would close suddenly or stop completely.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

For example, if you're using multiple apps simultaneously, such as swapping between SNS or chat frequently, it will gradually start to operate slowly. If you use it for a long period in this way apps can begin to forcefully close due to lack of memory and can crash.
