Oppo Find 5 review: 5-inch Full HD Android

posted at 10 March 2013 by Josh


Chinese company Oppo has obviously been trying to become an important maker of high-end Android phones lately, and the Oppo Find 5 comes to prove it can indeed produce world-class phones in one of the most crowded consumer electronics category at the moment. But let’s see whether a 5-inch Full HD screen, a quad-core processor and a 13-megapixels camera are enough to cope with the fierce competition out there.

What is in the box:
- The Oppo Find 5 smartphone
- Stereo in-ear headphones
- Wall charger
- microUSB cable
- SIM tray pin
- Two NFC tags

The Oppo Find 5 looks and feels pretty compact for a big-screen handset, mainly due to its unibody polycarbonate housing. The back is tapered a bit, the corners are not very rounded, and the steel frame inside makes it feel very solid. We can say that, overall, the device has a premium look, especially with the metal plate housing the 13-megapixels rear camera and dual LED flash modules on its back.

The phone only has two side keys: the power button on the left, and a volume rocker on the right. The SIM card tray right above the power/lock key comes with a pin inside the box for ejecting it easily.

The huge display only leaves room for a thin side bezel, while the three capacitive keys below it are responsive and lit in white. The LED notification light lets you know about missed calls or messages, as well as the handset’s charging situation.

The Oppo Find 5 packs a great-looking 5-inch 1080x1920 display with integrated touch layer and 441ppi density, which manages to exhibit bright colors, wide viewing angles, and good outdoor visibility.

The image on the screen appears very close to the glass, which always looks good and combined with the very high pixel density it gives the impression of high-quality print rather than a screen. Individual pixels meld together and even very tiny text remains smooth.
