Oppo is one of the most prominent Chinese mobile phones manufacturers in the world. They always fashion their mobile phones to be one of the unique out on the market.

Today, we are going to discuss the Oppo R5 mobile phone. This mobile phone is one of the thinnest in the world having a mere 4.85 mm thickness. It might be the one of the thinnest but it is packed with a lot of really great features with a very good price.

The design of the Oppo R5 mobile phone is much similar to the iPhone but with a very slim form factor. This might be hard to grasp especially if you have large hands, but it fits any pocket (even those skinny jeans) perfectly.

For the display, the Oppo R5 mobile phone has a 5.2-inch Full HD screen. The display is surprisingly very good even in direct sunlight. It has an adaptive brightness adjustment that automatically raises the brightness for better viewing angles if you’re in well-lit places.

The Oppo R5 mobile phone, albeit cheaper than other premium mobile phones, has an impressive spec sheet. Under the hood, this mobile phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC Octa-core processor. It has four 1.5GHz cores and four 1GHz cores for an impressive performance boost.

It also comes with 2GB of system RAM to help multi-taskers do their thing without any quirks.

The Oppo R5 mobile phone has a custom version of Android Kitkat 4.4 called ColorOS 2.0. It still looks pretty much the same as the Kitkat version, although, it does have a better notification area which makes it more intuitive.

Probably the only problem with ColorOS 2.0 is that it doesn’t come with a lot of widgets, so you have to download certain widgets according to your needs.

The battery life is a little bit on the low side. The Oppo R5 Android mobile phone has a non-removable 2,000 MaH battery. With impressive specs, this battery capacity will not be able to power those for very long. Still, the price is way cheaper than other premium phones, so I couldn’t complain about its battery (although, it would be really nice if it were a little bit beefed up).

The R5’s camera is possibly one of the best things this mobile phone has (well, aside from the impressive processor and RAM). The phone’s camera is a 13-megapixel camera with LED to help you capture good quality pictures in low-lit environments.

The included camera is also quite good. The ColorOS camera app is akin to Sony’s default camera app and it has a lot of intuitive features and functions such as HDR and Panorama.

This mobile phone also comes with a 5-megapixel front camera that is perfect for people who always use their phones to Skype, for example. It is also quite clear compared to other premium phones on the market.

The Oppo R5 Android mobile phone is one of the best premium phones out there. It may not have a good battery capacity, but it still packs a lot of punch. And, for the price of only $500, it is really one of the best out there on the market.
