There is the Expert Mode and you can have access of the advanced settings including AWB, exposure, focus, ISO and shutter speed. The common photographer was also able to take wonderful pictures with the use of OPPO F3 Plus.
The front facing camera is wonderful as it is great to make the pictures or selfie with two of the team members and it was taken at the same distance and angle. There is slight distortion around the edges of the photos, which is similar to take from fish eye lenses, when you use wide angle front camera. There is no LED flash for front camera and it is provided with upgraded screen flash. They are used to light up the screen for brighter selfies according to their environment. There is no replacement of the proper front facing flash.
There is bright and focused lights, which have lens flare when you use wide angle selfie mode. The quality of the camera is stealer and there is no complaint on that end but there is lack of LED flash and distortion for the focused lights, which are the issues and they should not be there.
