This makes the screen OPPO Find 5 has a density of 441ppi, alias the same as the Sony Xperia Z and HTC Butterfly. From the specs, like its competitors, the OPPO Find 5 also has very capable, he's the main specs:

OPPO parties not provide certainty tag of this smartphone, but it should be a new player, it seems Find 5 will be priced more competitively than its competitors from major vendors. Curious about the performance? Please read more :).Design and BodyPhones that comes from the Bamboo Curtain country usually labeled negatively for build quality matters, but not with OPPO Find 5. Although somewhat impressive similar to the Sony Xperia phones, but certainly both material and finish is not inferior to the major vendors. This phone feels firmly grasped, it is only natural because the hefty weight, 165 grams with a thickness of 8.9 mm. Matte plastic rear body is not so slick compared to the glossy plastic material. The rear section is curved to follow the hand grip, but the sides are made of the same felt a bit stiff. Despite having a 5-inch jumbo screen, but the width of this phone was not much different from the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, only longer alone.

The front of the black screen, giving rise to a dual tone accents on a white 5 OPPO Find this, especially at the very bottom of the Find 5 white sweeten the look of this phone enough. OPPO still include physical button a button tap Menu, Home and Back on the bottom of the screen. While entrenched in the top of the screen 1.9 MP front camera, proximity sensor and light sensor..In the back is made from matte, OPPO logo appear vertically. So that it can be read ODDO (oppo reversed so Oddo), as co-authors have thought this phone branded ODDO. 13Megapiksel camera with Dual LED flash at the top of the list adorned with silver around her. While it appears at the bottom of the loudspeaker with a simple form, only the points alone..On the left side, there is a SIM card slot. Surprisingly, the lock button is on the left, but otherwise usually lock button on the right, at the top of the phone. The volume buttons on the left, while the audio jack and Micro USB port respectively at the top and bottom of the phone. Placement of the lock / power is not good, we often find if the phone was a bit squashed in part, power button accidentally squashed.

ScreenThe screen is one of the most important variables OPPO Find 5, because it uses a full HD resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. With a width of 5 inches, the screen dimensions exactly the same as HTC and Sony Xperia Butterfly Z. What about the quality of the screen? Using IPS LCD, do not be surprised if OPPO Find 5 characteristics similar to screen smartphone from LG like LG Optimus G and also the iPhone 5. The screen is bright and well-lit, although the white matter, the iPhone 5 and Sony Xperia Z still outperform Find 5. But about the contrast, viewing angle and black levels on the screen, the screen outperformed Find 5 Reality Engine on Sony Xperia Z. Problem sharpness should not be questioned, 441 pixels per inch is one of the highest ppi mobile devices, especially using the Find 5 3 pieces subpixels (RGB) do not like the AMOLED screens Samsung phones that only 2 subpixels. Color shown is quite natural and balanced, not overdone but not too pale. Overall, the display OPPO Find 5 is one of the best mobile screen.

InterfaceAlthough banderolnya quite competitive, but about the interface is apparently part of the R & D OPPO still provide customization, so it looks quite different on Android 4.1 on a Nexus device. Unfortunately the display icons is too colorful, and less elegant, although it depends on your taste. Certainly, thanks to top-class hardware and Butter Project on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the interface feels very smooth, with no lag, even when open both folders on the homescreen, as well as the main menu, somewhat disjointed, quite surprising.

On the lockscreen by default displays a digital clock, with models GlassBoard, simple, by swiping the screen left or right in a large area. There are two other models ie slipper unlock lockscreen (slide to unlock models ala Apple, slide to the right to unlock the screen, slide to the left to turn off the sound on the phone). Last is the Weather Unlock, which is probably the most useful, in addition to existing weather, there are two options that unlock unlock unlock regular and straight into the camera. If you want better security, there are still some models that slide lockscreen, pattern, password and Face Unlock.

By default Homescreen this phone is 5 pieces, can be expanded up to 9 pieces home page. You can add widgets and wallpaper, with a choice widget and pretty much in line with the phone interface is colorful. To access additional menu pages and widgets, pinch the screen to the inside. There are 4 pieces of apps icons remain at the very bottom of the screen, place it can be exchanged and replaced with other apps icons to a maximum of 5 pieces. Hold down the Home button to go to the App Switcher, which appearance was overhauled..App drawer comes with 4 x 4 application icons. Due to the sharpness of the screen, icons are looking very good. The order of application icons can be changed as you like, and can create folders as well.  

While the notification bar has a Quick Toggle useful in performing quick setting (WiFi, Bluetooth, Sound, Rotation and Data). Another feature, you can set any notifications that appear or not appear in the notification bar. Location of marker notification when the notification bar is quite unique closed, there on the right, side by side with the exact battery percentage indicator and clock, confused with indicators of WiFi and cellular networks are actually there on the right.

Settings menu on the OPPO is somewhat unique, has 4 sub-categories, namely General, Sound, Display and Personal. Many features in it, ranging from general settings such as volume, profile, network settings, input text, apps, storage and so on, until the setting point, the LED notification settings, and security settings such as password protection, Blacklist phone calls from certain numbers, until the application Find my phone found here. You can be notified via predefined number if the SIM card of the phone is replaced with that does not belong to you, of course before need to register first.

If earlier we mentioned that the interface is too colorful (taste) it can actually be changed easily. Basically OPPO is the interface of GO Launcher, you can easily replace it with a Theme-default theme and the theme of Go. Of congenital Theme alone is enough to choose from, quite refreshing if you want to change the atmosphere..Contacts, Messaging and Text InputAlthough it looks enhanced, but very standard Android Contacts menu, and there is a group favorite for ease of grouping your friends. As with other Android devices you can sync your contacts with GMail account, Facebook, Twitter. For new contacts, some additional fields that can be selected is the ringtone, IM, Email, Postal, Organization, Notes, Nickname, Website and Internet Call..Messaging on this phone certainly meet the standards of a smartphone: the ability to SMS, Email and Instant Messaging. SMS is easy to use as well as other Android phones, SMS is displayed in a threaded fashion like a chat. While you can use a Gmail email that has many similar features as the desktop version. Of course you can also use other email client, use the email application. While available for Instant Messaging and Google Talk is Google Messenger, except that you can add as an alternative to Google PlayStore Line, WhatsApp, IM and so on..There are two text input methods can be selected that OPPO keyboard and Google Voice Typing. Standard features appear, such as sound, vibrate for feedback, language, correction, suggestion, and so on. There are also unusual features, such as Theme for keyboard (black, white or standard), can also be customized by using the zoom image of the gallery, complete with transparency settings. Such as the 5-inch screen mobile other, one-handed typing is quite difficult though not impossible to do, especially if you're standing on a city bus for example.

Camera and Video RecorderOPPO Find 5 complete with 13MP camera and 1080p video recording. Camera and video recorder menu separated by a sliding (slide). Settings and features on the camera include: HDR, Flash, Face Detection, sound, timer, resolution, Grid and location recording. Lens to focus on an object you can touch the objects on the screen. To shoot with burst mode, you can hold the camera key, the performance is quite fast, more or less 5 photos per second. The absence of a physical button for the camera shutter coped with the volume button can be used to take pictures..The camera is pretty good, no less than other mobile phone top class in terms of coloring, indoors, the resulting color is quite natural, the results are sharp and detailed enough. Please see more in the photos below.

For video recording, in addition to normal recording 1080p, Find 5 has a special feature that SD video (480p) with high speed (120 frames per second). There are two modes, namely High Speed ​​and Slow Motion. High Speed ​​recording 480p video at 120 fps framerate in normal speed so the movement in the video looks very real. Maybe you've ever watched a 3D movie version of The Hobbit by Peter Jackson when played in theaters last year? Something like that (though the 3D version of The Hobbit is only played in 48 fps mode, while the other movie theaters only 24 fps, you can imagine a smooth motion at 120 fps video). While Slow Motion 120 fps 480p recording in slow motion, slowed to 30fps, in other words 4 times slower. Similar to what is applied LG KU990 Viewty mobile phone in a few years ago. Although not written, but in 720p mode, the framerate was apparently still very high, checked using Media Player Classic on the PC, up to 90 frames per second! Yet another high spec phones namely the Asus Padfone 2 can only record 60 fps video in 720p HD mode. This is very useful if you record something that moves fast, sporting events, motor vehicles, small children running around and so on. Other features in the video recording LED light, grid, location, voice recording and HDR mode (like the camera).

In a surprising result only generate 1080p video recording 80MB file for recording lasted 1 minute, with 10000kbps bitrate and framerate of 30 fps. To file 720p 90fps, duration 15 seconds produces a file of 20MB, the bitrate is only 2800kbps, video bit less sharp detail although still considered sufficient. So, OPPO really pursue higher FPS in the 720p mode..

Photo GalleryImage viewer on OPPO Find 5 photos only course, there is no video that appears, although from the video recording though. Arranged in a folder format with thumbnails, fairly simple, and can be connected to your Google+ and Facebook accounts. Photos can be shared, used as wallpaper, made Slideshow, rotated, in-crop and edited using the default Android photo editor. Good performance, used to open a super-sized photos of a large (approximately 40 megapixels, with a file size of 21MB) no rendering about 2-3 seconds, but since the image is very large, it is only natural, after all, in the HTC Butterfly is also a process of rendering 2 - 3 seconds as well.

Video playerThe video player on OPPO Find 5 is quite unreliable. Formats that can be played is quite varied, but not entirely smooth. For example, files. Mov,. Mp4,. Wmv, can be played with up to 1080p resolution and a smooth subtitle. Srt, but for mkv format despite current 720 but if the skip to a specific point in the video player will freeze for a moment. Format. Avi even halting, though only SD resolution (720x480). Strange too because. Avi is a common format that is usually not too heavy. Format. M2ts (bluray copy) smoothly jaya although of course should first rename to. Mp4 video player application that reads this default. You can lock the screen that does not respond to touch hands while playing video (like in app MX Player). Also there are features such as pop-out video on the Samsung Galaxy SIII, but more limited, its size can not be changed, but still can be moved. Subtitle. Srt can be displayed, but there is no setting huruh type, font size, color and others. For sound settings, there is Dolby Mobile, as well as setting in it, namely Natural Bass, Treble Equalizer Enhancement and special equalizer which would involve video as News, Sport, Drama, Music Video and others. No video display in thumbnail format when the portrait screen position, but if it is turned into landscape position cover-flow like on Apple products.

Music PlayerMusic player similar to other applications, with a white background, pretty good for a white background making excellence IPS display more pronounced than other types, especially AMOLED. Divided into four general categories such as All Music, Artist, Album and Playlist, it looks quite simple but still interesting and certainly easy to use. You can display lyrics, enable Dolby Mobile, as well as setting in it, namely Natural Bass, Treble and Equalizer Enhancement, which includes such standard equalizer Pop, Classic, Rock, Jazz and so on. There Auto Stop feature, Shake to Skip, displays song lyrics, as well as filters for small-sized music files. The sound quality of the loudspeaker is quite nice for the size of the phone, toned but still clear. Meanwhile, if using a headset, voice fairly standard course, and seem flat.

So in 1 hour runs roughly 20-25 percent..Then to watch 1080p HD video for an hour, the battery is reduced by 22 percent, so less than 100-0 per cent you can watch HD video for 272 minutes, or about 4.5 hours..Lastly, try browsing for 30 minutes, the battery indicator decreased 9 percent, so if you are used to browsing from 100 percent battery to run out, OPPO Find 5 can last for 333 hours, or approximately 5.5 hours..In this test, the screen brightness is set at approximately 50 percent, remains active in the background internet using WiFi, while the GSM network is turned off (do not use SIM cards).
