We go hands-on with the Oppo Find 5 Android smartphone.
Oppo is best known for its high-end Blu-ray and Hi-Fi systems, but the Guangdong-based company is now attempting to make an impact in the smartphone market. The [[artnid:444864|Oppo Find 5]] is a flagship Android phone with a 5in, full HD display and we've just got our hands on it.
Here's the Oppo Find 5 retail packaging. It definitely looks like a premium product.
Our review unit of the Oppo Find 5 was supplied by [[xref"http://www.mobicity.com.au/oppo-find-5-32gb.html|MobiCity]]. It appears to be a Chinese model with 32GB of internal memory. Oppo also sells a 16GB model.
Unboxing our Find 5.
Oppo has definitely put some work into the packaging. There's an impressive attention to detail, which we always appreciate.
The Find 5 ships with an AC charger, a USB cable and headphones. Given the charger is an international model, MobiCity supplies an adapter that will work with Australian power points.
Here's the Find 5 accessories included in the box.
Like the Apple iPhone 5 and the HTC One, the Oppo Find 5 comes with a SIM eject tool. It's shaped in the form of Oppo's logo, which is a nice touch.
There's a user manual included as well as two NFC tags.
The Oppo Find 5 combines a thin 3.25mm bezel, a black chrome-plated stainless steel front-frame and a 8.9mm thick squared case.
Oppo stresses that the Find 5 uses straight lines and simple shapes that "removes distractions" without compromising on build quality. The design is attractive and comfortable to hold, but is there a really need for all that marketing fluff? It's a nice looking phone without it.
On the back there's a 13-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture. Like Sony's Xperia Z, the Find 5 boasts HDR video recording. The phone will record video at 120fps in full HD quality. In addition, the camera on the Find 5 can capture 100 photos at 5 per second using a burst mode.
The speaker on the back has individual, drilled holes. There's a few touches like this that show Oppo put plenty of thought into the Find 5's design.
On the right side you'll find a volume rocker. The buttons are a little hard to press, though, and we think they could have been positioned slightly lower for more effective one-handed use.
On the bottom there's a microphone and a standard microUSB port for charging.
On the left side you'll find a power/lock screen button and a SIM card slot, which needs to be opened with the included SIM eject tool.
A standard 3.5mm headphone jack sits on the top.
The Oppo Find 5 runs Google's Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean' operating system. Sadly, it isn't a 4G device, but it will work on all Australian 3G networks and will support HSPA+ dual channel speeds used Down Under by Telstra.We'll publish a full review of the Oppo Find 5 in the coming weeks.
