Oppo R5 review

 

One of the thinnest smartphones in the world

Fantastic AMOLED screen ; Decent 13MP camera ; Quick charge ; Low price

Uncomfortable to hold ; No headphone port ; UI feels cheap and dated ; Battery life not amazing

Ratings in depth Despite the best efforts of Samsung and Apple, the world's thinnest smartphone title briefly went to a relatively unknown Chinese manufacturer. Oppo's R5 handset is a mere 4.85mm thick, that's almost thin enough to carve your holiday...

Oppo R5

 

The thinnest phone in the world

Real tech heads may also miss some of the little extras that feature is some of the bigger-name phones like the LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy S5. For example, the Oppo R5 doesn’t have an IR transmitter, used to make a phone act like a universal remote....

Oppo R5 review

 

Simply the slimmest phone in the world

Super-thin ; Sharp screen ; Fast charging

Buggy, quirky software ; No headphone jack ; Mediocre battery life and tiny storage

An alarmingly slim, very well made phone that falls short on some of the basics

OPPO R5 Smartphone Review

 

The OPPO R5 was, until very recently, the slimmest smartphone in the world. Measuring just 4.85mm thick – it makes the iPhone 6 look chunky by comparison. That said, does the R5 sacrifice performance and usability for its sleek style? Today we see if...

Sharp display ; Beautifully thin design ; Very powerful for the price ; Cheaper than many rivals ; Fast-charging technology

Dreadful battery life ; Viewing angles and screen brightness are not great

the OPPO R5 is certainly a beautiful phone, and a powerful one too. If you can manage with recharging during the day, it’s well worth buying.

Oppo R5 review

 

This week's thinnest phone is the Oppo R5 from China. It's certainly slim, but how thin can you get without sacrificing build quality and battery life?

Thinnest smartphone around, stylish design, octa-core processor, decent cameras

No expandable memory, no radio, no headphone slot

The Oppo R5 may be the current record holder for slimmest smartphone, but fortunately it's also a pretty impressive performer, with a fast octa-core processor, a decent camera too. The battery could be a little better, though it's not quite a disgrace,...

Oppo R5 Review: Elegant looks and sleek design but at Rs 29,990, pricing is way off the mark - Tech2

 

We review Oppo's thinnest and most elegant phone, the Oppo R5

The Oppo R5 wins in the looks department. The 4.85mm thin form factor makes this one stand apart from the crowd and the silver back looks elegant. In terms of performance, the Oppo R5 does have some issues, but on a daily use-case is quite...

Oppo R5 review:

 

Oppo's R5 is a seriously gorgeous phone. Clad in metal, it's super-thin -- just 4.85mm (0.19 inches) deep, and it weighs a scant 155 grams (5.5 ounces). It's certainly impressive, but this comes at the loss of the 3.5mm audio jack, so you'll have to...

The Oppo R5 has a ridiculously sleek profile with a metal frame that feels solid and well-built.

Despite having an octa-core processor, the phone is oftentimes sluggish. The 13-megapixel camera takes a while to start, too. The thin frame means there's no headphone jack or microSD card slot.

Oppo has created a beautiful phone that shows plenty of promise, but it needs to iron out the kinks in its performance if it's to stand out against the cheaper competition.

Oppo R5 ( gold)

 

For Android fans envious of the iPhone 6 's slim frame, well, look no further. The R5's ultra-slim body beats the iPhone handily, and will draw envious stares from other Android owners as well.
