The Oppo Find 5 – A 1080p Phone

by On December 13, 2012

Oppo, a relatively lesser known company has decided to step up and shine, and boy it is indeed shining. The latest flagship phone from the Chinese manufacturer was previously released in Beijing; it presents the customers with everything they would want in a top end smartphone. The device Oppo Find 5 is a smartphone which houses the latest and greatest technologies under its hood. Oppo Find 5 comes with a 5 inch 1080p HD display which is sharp and crisp. Powering the super sweet display it Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chip with a helping of 2GB RAM. The battery is a little too small for our liking, capping at 2500nAh it’s not slouch but still is small compared to Samsung Galaxy Note 2’s offering. The device will be running android 4.1.2 right off the bat. NFC technology is also incorporated and so are included 2 NFC tags. The tags will allow you to drive/sleep easily without tinkering with your phone. There is also an exclusive version of Sina Wiebo which allows users to follow each other by using NFC. The major addition the phone has is the 13 megapixel camera. The camera is not just a badly executed large number either, it’s is backed up with proper hardware too. This allows the phone to capture photos and videos with HRD enabled, that’s right videos with HDR. Oppo says that it is the first company to use this amazing feature. The 13 megapixel camera will be able to shoot slow motion videos at 120fps. The front facing vanity camera is a 1.9MP one which is more than adequate for Skype and duck faced self-portraits. The major turn off is the non-expandable 16 GB of internal memory. What is the use of having a beautiful gigantic screen with 441 ppi when you can’t even cram 3-4 1080p movies in it? Anyways the device will arrive in the US for $499 but might take a month or so to reach various territories. The Oppo Find 5 will be looking to compete with existing phablets in the market, the Samsung’s Note 2 and HTC Droid DNA. This will be interesting to watch though. What will you be doing, cheering for the underdog or backing the big boys only?
