Summary: Ok, so I am just getting into these China made phones that had so much hype surrounding them and I for one am definitely impressed. We're talking a flawless phone running android os with amazing display. I made the mistake in the past of buying mainstream products from China as there are many copies but the products that come directly from Chinese manufacturers are incredible.
Summary: Oppo will not stand behind it's products. If you have a problem, even under warranty, they will simply ignore you. Do some searching...this has become seemingly a standard practice for Oppo customer service. There is no customer service number...only emails that they will ignore.
Summary: Up until now, I've never thrown a lot of money at a smartphone, always opting for the best of the budget range, leaving my wife to pick and choose the ones she wants at the higher pricepoints (usually iPhones or Galaxies). This time, however, I decided to go for the phone that appealed the most regardless of price and having looked at the alternatives, I plumped for the Oppo Find 5, especially having heard so many great things about the screen and knowing from experience...
Summary: I purchased this phone directly from the Oppo website a couple months ago to make the switch from Verizon to Net10. Overall, I've been very pleased with my decision. This phone's screen is gorgeous. The body has a premium feel and a low profile, making it easy to slip in my pocket. Plus it's just a good-looking phone that is unique and reasonably priced. The stock UI is minimal and there's practically no useless bloatware.
Summary: 1) The stock skin and widgets are weak 2) There is no landscape mode for SMS 3) The phone is not that durable. I rolled over on the phone and the screen cracked. Once the screen cracked, the touch screen no longer worked. The phone has a nice display and did run smooth, but only lasted me two months before the phone was damaged.
Excerpt: Build of this phone is Strong selling point, better built than anything I ever seen, and I saw HTC One M7 and M8... Believe me, this one is even sturdier, impressive to hold in hand.. Reception: Where I got one to two bars of 3G (or H+) with my LG G2 ond Samsung Note 2 and and with galaxy S5... In that areas Oppo Find 5 excels with 3 to 4 barrs of 3g and/or H+... (I have to mention that Galaxy S4 looses signal there all the time and LG G2 puts me to 2G.
Pros: Build quality!, Build quality, so good that I have mention it twice! :-), RAM (lots of it), Internal memory (I have 32GB model), Goregeuos Full HD 5, Thin, good looking., Reception king., Speed UI., Excellent multitasker., Lots of customization options, especially with screen off gestures.
Cons: Sometimes takes long to get GPS lock., Only 2GB space for app installation - there is workaround on XDA for that., Capacitive buttons-Somewhat and sometimes unresponsive, not easy to press (find), Power button on left side takes time to get use to... Double tap to wake helps.
If you want a phone built like a tank, here it is.

Summary: This is the first china phone that feels superior to the western products. I really hope Oppo enters the smartphone business with more strength, because we were needing this kind of inovation. The huge and beautiful screen, the AWESOME sound and the powerful SOC that powers it make this phone top notch.
Summary: I chose this cell phone because it is far better than any other phone in canada at the time. I like the design of this phone, and the specifications are more than awesome. Yes, I would absolutely recommend this to a friend.
