WE REVIEW THE OPPO R5 THE WORLD’S THINNEST SMARTPHONE
If the world’s thinnest smartphone is your most desired hand phone choice, then the OPPO R5 is most certainly for your. The OPPO R5 is the first smartphone to measure less than 5mm thick, a level that the industry had previously considered unachievable. Being thin is not the end of the OPPO R5’s pulling power, it also:-
- comes equipped with exceptional technology including an octa-core Qualcomm MSM8939,
- comes with a 5.2 inch AMOLED screen giving the highest brightness and colour rendition, the lowest reflection ratio, and highest ambient light contrast ratio available.
- has patented heat dissipation technology ‘Cool Element’ that protects its octa-core CPU, in turn prolonging the life of the phone,
comes with the latest PI 2.0 Plus Flash Shot technology and allows for vibrant and stunning pictures in low light environments,
- has an simple to navigate menu system and ease of use.
Despite being thin, the OPPO R5 is far from flimsy and delicate, we are sure it will not bend whilst in your pocket and we definitely not smash as it sits at the bottom of your tote). We found the OPPO R5 to have a nice feel and is comfortable and easy to handle. The screen size is very sufficient and image quality is good. Of course, the slim design looks chic and slips easily into any clutch or handbag. The only negative point we found was the lack of earphone socket, being especially slim the OPPO R5 does not accommodate the socket but this can be purchased as an optional item.
