I'am soo happy that Oppo has finally released Official Nougat update for both Oppo F3 n F3 Plus

Im an OPPO F3 PLUS user and let me share its pros/features and cons

New Features:

Updated UI from Color OS 3.0 to 3.1 (more iphone look alike UI)
Quick Replies
Oppo Share
Night Shield
Headphones Monitor
Payment Protection
Kids Space
Device ON/OFF preset
Clone Apps
Split-Screen
Game Acceleration
Changes the built-in email from WPS to Gmail
Control Center
Secure Keyboard
Multi-Screen Interaction (formally called Wireless Display)
File Manager > Remote Management (formally called FTP)
Charging Speed is Increased by 20%. recharged 10-100% in 50mins only
RAM Optimization is awesome (previously it will be maxxx 1.80 or 1.85gb free ram available but now its optimized upto 2.24gb)
Android Security Patch is Updated to Jan 5th, 2018
Few minor changes like Homescreen apps auto arrange, new icons, folder view, music player ui, etc.. are noticable

Note: All other unmentioned features are already existed in the previous OS and there is No Lag, No Battery Drain issues or any harmful issues with this update :D

Cons:

-Removed Private Apps feature (hiding apps)
-Removed Memos
-Removed network logos feature
-Removed one-tap memory accelerator/booster (homescreen floating button)
-In couple of apps, UI looks unpolished with outdated Font
-Camera Untouched (no improvement in bokeh poor cropping and low light noise)
-No Face Unlock
-No 4G Video Calling
-No Auto Call Recording again!
-Split-Screen doesnt support almost 80% of system apps and even facebook. i say it works for less complicated apps only but yes it works enough for our use
-It took sooooo long to provide this major update but oppo should have given Oreo instead of Nougat but still im thankful

Why this update is not on oppo's website or available through ota update?
i believe this rom is not released in india but in Philippines or indonesia. somehow someone leaked the link and spreaded over to internet and here we are enjoying this update.

some say this nougat update is only available at oppo service center but not in oppo site nor ota update. so idk 100%.

in about phone>regulation> i see only Philippines,thailand,indonesia,europe country names but no india. if u are in marshmallow rom can you confirm me what u see in that menu?

thanks mate! im trying to post as many as useful posts about our powerful device f3 plus.

as u r having 6gb variant u might see normal performance like before but as a 4gb user i saw alot of faster performance in this update and tooo smooth

suggestion:
some apps doesnt support split screen in this update like almost all system apps and facebook app etc...

>enable dev options and check the Force resizable option at bottom of the list and then you can disable dev options

clone app and gaming acceleration features not supporting many apps/games

only rare stupid apps n games are supporting but most of the popular apps doesnt support. useless features :(

The notification logo in the notification bar is removed. I really liked that logo cause it really helps to notify whenever i got a message or something is updating. But overall the update is pretty good.

Nice update though ..But !!

Hii
Thanks for the update file and it seems very nice and running very fine on my Oppo F3. But though there seems to be a problem with the music player (may a kernel problem, idk) as it is not showing any album arts for the mp3 files and I know that my mp3 files have been tagged correctly. So please help me with that anyone.
Thank You.
