Oppo breaks into Australian retail stores

Allphones will be the only retailer to date stocking Oppo smartphones

China’s Oppo has broken into Australian retail stores after forging a partnership with Allphones.

The move into Allphone’s 71 retail stores follows a September soft-launch, which involved the company selling its smartphones directly to Australians form a localised website.

On offer from Allphones is the flagship Find 7, the N1 Mini and the Neo 5, each of which is being bundled with accessories to further entice customers ahead of the Christmas holidays.

The $719 Find 7 bodes best as it is being bundled with a spare 3000 milliamp-hour battery, in addition to a flip cover and screen protector.

Oppo is one of the first Chinese smartphone companies to launch in Australia. Rival Xiaomi has yet to make a move after shutting down local resellers, while Huawei and ZTE focus largely on inexpensive smartphone solutions.

Oppo has forged a reputation for innovating existing smartphones technologies. The company's Find 7 was the first smartphone with both a 1440p display and rapid charge battery technology.

Recently the company unveiled the world’s thinnest smartphone at 4.85mm, the hand polished R5, and the first smartphone with an automated rotating camera, the N3.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
