The hand polished aluminum solid body and stylish finish, attached with a sleek body is all over the best feature of the device.

The USP of the Oppo R5 is definitely its design. The R5 doesn’t approach with any publicity stunt, which is excellent, but appears to be too much of a “plain-jane” with a modest set of specs.

It’s all very attractive, but now let’s be practical. The Oppo R5 is so thin it can’t hold a headphone jack, so if you are either try using Bluetooth headphones or a USB adaptor. If you go with Bluetooth, and just hope the battery doesn’t die. It’s also so thin that it can’t actually manage enough battery, so getting throughout a day in any position is mostly impossible. Oppo’s one allowance is to build a slight hump for the camera module, which help the R5 to take better pictures.
