Oppo Find 5 review: 5-inch Full HD Android

posted at 10 March 2013 by Josh

The Oppo Find 5 uses Chrome as the default browser offering a very pleasant experience when exploring websites on the large 5” screen with its great 441ppi pixel density. There will be no stutter even when rendering complex pages, and small text is very distinct. Unfortunately, the device has no Adobe Flash support, so you might need to get some 3rd party software.

In terms of wireless connectivity options the Find 5 has a 2 Mbps HSPA+ radio which comes standard with pentaband support in the international version (including T-Mobile's 1700 MHz band), Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS, DLNA, FM and NFC radios. Wired connectivity is done through the MHL port at the bottom of the phone.

Although not exceptional, call quality is no above average as voices sound loud and clear on both end of the line, while the noise-canceling mics manage to do their jobs pretty well. The Oppo 5 comes with a juicy 2,500 mAh battery, which is better than its Full HD 5-incher competition has to offer. The battery should be able to get you through at least a full day depending on usage.

However, there are a few drawbacks such as the lack of microSD slot (with only 11 GB of user-available memory, it is rather large and heavy in the hand, while its side buttons tend to be somewhat shallow.
