BenQ announced the launch of the F3 smartphone in 2013. The manufacturer is offering the BenQ F3 phone with 4.5 inch display, Mediatek MT6589 chipset, 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage.
The BenQ F3 smartphone runs on the Android OS v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system. This phone uses a high resolution 540 x 960 px, 4.5 inch IPS display. This screen can produce vibrant and accurate colors, providing an enjoyable viewing experience for multimedia content, gaming, and general usage. This phone has only one rear-camera (13 MP, 4128 x 3096 px, autofocus) on its back for photos and videos. Some smartphones with multi-camera setups offer specialized features like macro photography, low-light capabilities, or advanced image stabilization.

BenQ F3 specifications
|Dimensions||5.18 x 2.63 x 0.35 inch|
|SIM type||Micro SIM|
The weight of the BenQ F3 is 4.2 oz. It is still considered to be relatively lightweight and portable. The dimensions of this BenQ smartphone are average (5.18 x 2.63 x 0.35 inch). For some people, larger smartphones are more comfortable to hold and easier to use, as they provide a larger display for watching videos, browsing the web, and using apps. A micro SIM is larger than the current standard Nano SIM card but smaller than the older, larger SIM card size. You can use a SIM card adapter to convert a Micro or Nano SIM card into the required size.
|OS version||Android OS v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean)|
|CPU||Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7|
The BenQ F3 comes with Android OS v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) out of the box, but it is upgradable to the next OS. Android is an open-source operating system, which means that the source code is freely available to the public and can be modified and distributed by anyone. The F3 has a Mediatek MT6589 CPU. A quad-core mobile CPU can provide fast and efficient performance for mobile games. The BenQ F3 comes with PowerVR SGX544 Graphics Processing Unit. The GPU is optimized for parallel processing and complex mathematical operations required for rendering and manipulating graphics. PowerVR GPUs are considered to be highly competitive with other leading mobile GPUs, such as ARM Mali and Adreno.
|Screen size||4.5 inch|
|Resolution||540 x 960 px|
This smartphone comes with an IPS display. IPS is known for its ability to provide wide viewing angles and accurate color reproduction. IPS panels have become more energy-efficient over time, allowing for longer battery life in portable devices. Smaller smartphones are generally more compact and easier to handle. The display size represents the diagonal distance from one corner of the screen to the opposite corner. Text will be easier to read, and videos will be more immersive on a larger display. This smartphone is multitouch capable. Multitouch is a feature in smartphones that allows for the detection and tracking of multiple touch points on the screen simultaneously. It enables users to interact with the device using more than one finger or touch input at the same time.
|Internal storage||4 GB|
|Memory card slot||microSD|
1 GB of RAM is not typically considered to be enough for a smartphone. Most smartphones today come with at least 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and some high-end devices have even more. Having more RAM alone does not necessarily guarantee better performance, and other factors such as the processor and storage speed can also impact overall performance. If you primarily use your smartphone for basic tasks like calling, texting, and browsing the web, 32GB may be sufficient for your needs. The F3 has only 4 GB of internal storage. The internal storage of the F3 (4 GB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card. A microSD card is a type of small, removable flash memory card used to store digital information.
|Main camera||13 MP, 4128 x 3096 px, autofocus|
|Selfie camera||2 MP|
This smartphone has only one camera on its back. If you have budget limitations or prioritize other features over a multi-camera system, this single camera setup can be a suitable choice. The autofocus is an important feature in this smartphone. Autofocus helps the camera to focus on a subject automatically, which ensures that the resulting photo or video is clear and sharp. The F3 does not have optical image stabilization (OIS). OIS technology is more commonly found in higher-end smartphones and is designed to reduce camera shake and blur, resulting in sharper and clearer images and videos.
|GSM 2G bands||850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900|
|Network coverage||2G / 3G|
|Wi-Fi||Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n|
|Headphone||3.5 mm jack|
The BenQ F3 supports 2G and 3G networks only. Compared to modern 4G and 5G networks, 3G networks are generally considered to be relatively slow. The BenQ F3 can connect to Wi-Fi networks at home, at work, or in public places such as coffee shops or airports. It operates within specific frequency bands, typically 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz, allowing devices to communicate wirelessly within a certain range. With Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect your F3 smartphone to a wide range of Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, speakers, smartwatches, fitness trackers, and more.
This phone has a built-in GPS receiver. GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite-based navigation system that allows you to determine your location and get directions to your desired destination. The F3 isn't NFC (Near Field Communication) capable. NFC is not essential for basic phone functionality, but it can be useful for a variety of tasks and features. The F3 phone has built-in FM radio receiver. FM radio allows users to tune in to local radio stations and listen to live broadcasts, news, music, and other content.
The F3 has a microUSB port. MicroUSB is a type of USB connector that was commonly used on older smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. The F3 smartphone has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. A 3.5 mm headphone jack is a small round port, that allows you to connect wired headphones or earphones to the device.
|Type||Li-Ion 2100 mAh|
The Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery gives the smartphone a good battery backup. The Li-ion is a low maintenance battery which offers high energy, is lightweight and does not require periodic full discharge. The battery of F3 is removable. You can simply buy a new piece from the open market and interchange it easily by yourself.
|Sensors||accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, proximity|
Smartphones today come with a wealth of sensors to facilitate a better user experience. The accelerometer provides information about the smartphone's movement in three axes: X (horizontal), Y (vertical), and Z (depth). When an object, such as your hand or face, comes close to the sensor of F3, it triggers a response that can be used for specific functions or features. The F3 phone comes with a compass sensor. A compass sensor is a device that provides accurate directions in relation to the earth's North and South magnetic poles.
