75% Oppo K1 review: An affordable Oppo phone that offers good performance and cameras
Source: India Today English
The Oppo K1 offers a few interesting features to keep a user satisfied. The attractive gradient design and teardrop display is a nice sight to have every time you pick up the device. The AMOLED panel offers rich, vibrant colours and sharpness, which makes it great for watching videos and playing games. The Snapdragon 660 is a smooth and powerful chipset that is capable of handling whatever you throw at it, while at the same time keeps the Oppo K1 cool from the inside.

80% Oppo K1 Review: Upping the mid-segment ante
Source: Tech PP English
All of which makes the Oppo K1 a very good debutant for Oppo’s new K series of devices. The big question, of course, is: should you be investing Rs 16,990 in it? Well, Oppo deserves credit for taking on the likes of Xiaomi, Realme, Honor, and Nokia with a device that is not really a “me-too” one. The K1’s troika of AMOLED display, in-display fingerprint scanner, and drop notch are not commonplace at its price tag. And allied with a good processor and decent cameras, it is quite a formidable proposition. Yes, it does cost more than the likes of the Realme 2 Pro, the Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Redmi Note 6 Pro, but it does also legitimately bring more to the table. It is priced just above the Rs 15,000 price segment, but if marketed well, it could be a headache for all its members, and even its own successors, considering the benchmark it sets. For, the Oppo K1 does not try just to compete in its price segment but also to redefine what people expect in it.

80% Oppo K1 review: Good performance, cameras and battery at Rs 16,990
Source: The Indian Express English
Oppo K1 is a mid-range smartphone that offers its users a lot of good features along with a decent in-display fingerprint sensor at Rs 16,990. During the review period, I was personally quite impressed by what the device could do at such a price point. At the price, it has great performance, a good battery, impressive cameras and much more. It is also the cheapest smartphone you can get with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Keeping in mind that the Oppo K1 is the only phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor in its price band, the launch price of Rs. 16,990 is not too bad. We hope it will drop eventually and fall in line with other Snapdragon 660 powered smartphones with comparable RAM and storage configurations, such as the Realme 2 Pro (Review) or the Vivo V9 Pro ₹ 15,388 (Review).

Hands-on: Oppo K1 is the cheapest phone with in-display fingerprint sensor
Source: Android Authority English
It’s never been a better time for mid-range smartphone users, and the Oppo K1 represents another great option for prospective buyers. The phone looks plenty good, is powerful enough and has a great screen to boot. The in-display fingerprint scanner is a cool addition that should sweeten the deal. The phone is priced at 16,990 rupees (~$240) making it a fantastic option for users in the sub 20,000 rupees (~$280) segment.

80% Oppo K3 Review: Reminds one of Realme X, but how does it differ?
Source: The Indian Express English
Both the Oppo K3 and the Realme X are similar phones with a few differences here and there. Still, I found the Oppo K3 to be a really good performer under Rs 20,000. The device has good performance, battery and cameras. My major cons were the low-light performance, which is still an issue for phones in this segment. If your budget is under Rs 20,000, Oppo K3 can easily be considered given what it offers.

70% Oppo K3 review: A modest attempt
Source: Gadget Show English
Oppo K3 is a fairly good effort by the smartphone maker in a segment that is highly competitive. The performance of the handset is flawless sans few ColorOS elements that we wish Oppo will improve upon in future. Those who love shooting images, they are likely to find the device valuable. But more than that, the battery is what can be called as the major plus point for the device. Although the K3 is a powerful device in general, there still remains a lot to be covered by the company in general to make its devices really competitive in the segment, which for now is dominated by the likes of Xiaomi.

85% Oppo K3 review: Reno-like design meets Realme X-like performance
Source: India Today English
If you read through the whole review of the Opp K3, you would have noticed the number of times we mentioned the Realme X. This is because the K3 is largely similar to the Realme X in most cases. We loved the Realme X and called it one of the best phones under Rs 20,000 right now. Naturally, this also means the Oppo K3 comes close to that benchmark. It gets an attractive design combines with great Super AMOLED display, a powerful Snapdragon 710 chipset and VOOC 3.0 fast charging. Bonus features include a snappy in-display fingerprint sensor and up to 8GB of RAM.

90% Oppo K3 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Oppo K3 has enough merit to make it a decent all-rounder, however, Oppo couldn't have picked a worse time to launch this phone. The 64GB model that we have is priced exactly the same as the base variant of the Realme X (Review), which has 128GB of storage. On the other hand, there's 6GB RAM on the Oppo K3, compared to 4GB on the Realme X. The cameras are also slightly different, and from our experience, the Oppo K3 comes quite close to matching the camera performance of the Realme X. There's no doubt that both these phones are going to eat into each other's sales, as they are very similar.

Since the beginning of this year, the mobile phone market has once again entered the price war, and various cost-effective models have emerged one after another.
