Mobile Review: Oppo Joy Plus

While most smartphones are following the trend of getting larger in terms of screen size and less affordable with more technology crammed in a larger screen, most have seemed to have forgotten that sometimes small is beautiful.

Released on May 2015 and available in all major Cambodian mobile retail shops, the Oppo Joy Plus is big on its features yet light in the pocket, weighing at just 125g with an affordable price at $110 dollars.

Style and Design

The Oppo Joy Plus features a simple yet elegant design complimented with a beautiful ergonomic curve with the Oppo logo on its rear cover and a 4-inch multi-touch display on the front.

With a phone depth of 9.9mm and weighing 125 grams, the Joy Plus is one of the thinner and lighter smartphones in its category, which makes it easy to carry around in the pocket. It is also available in pearlescent white and deep blue to complete the stylish and smooth look.


Camera Features

Featuring a 3 Megapixel rear camera and a 0.3 Megapixel front camera, the Joy Plus is still able to capture decent photos with its face-detection and geo-tagging features.

In addition, the Joy Plus’ camera has a plug-in platform, which makes it easy for new users to adapt to the features. These features include different scene modes from audio photography to its Beautify mode to customize your photography experience.

For example, in it’s Beautify 3.0 mode, you can add in different make-up styles to achieve the perfect desired photo you want. In its double exposure mode, you can overlap two captured images to create a new interesting image or transform it into a unique artwork to share with friends

Processor and Memory

The Joy Plus runs on Android 4.4 (Kitkat) with the Oppo ColorOS 2.0 and is powered by a Media Tek MT6572 dual core 1.3 GHz processor and a 1 GB RAM, which are good specifications considering the affordable price.

Moreover, the Joy Plus has 4GB worth of internal storage, which can be boosted to 32GB with a micro SD memory card to store your favourite songs and other media files.



The ColorOS is what makes the Oppo unique with an interactive and inspiring user interface.

Designed and based on Android, Oppo’s ColorOS enhances the user’s experience through simple yet practical icons for a cleaner and more integrated look, various customizable themes and on/off screen gestures to allow instant access to your favorite apps. It is also constantly upgraded to improve the user’s experience with time.


With a resolution of 800 x 400 Pixels and at 233 PPI pixel density, the Joy Plus still retains a decent screen sharpness with an ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor.

In addition, its ultra sensitive touch-screen is created using an all-new touch IC chip, which allows you to use the Joy Plus’ touchscreen features even when your hands are wet or if you are wearing gloves. This practical feature will become useful especially when you need to answer a reply on the phone while you are washing the dishes or sending a text message without taking the gloves off.

Overall, the Oppo Joy Plus is a great mobile phone with its dual-SIM feature, which can accommodate both the normal SIM card and micro-SIM card and it has just the right size and weight to carry around conveniently in your pocket. Add in a decent camera with 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth features with an affordable price range and you will get a smartphone of unrivalled value for your daily needs.
