2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 9 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Also pretty thin (7.5mm), and light (very manageable at 152g) - so it's easy to handle
  • The texture of the rear shell also makes this phone easy to grip
  • The fingerprint sensor on the back is surprisingly well within reach, and its slightly oblong shape means that it's hard to miss - it's also fast and accurate
  • There is also Face Unlock that works pretty well in most conditions - not quite as accurate as the iPhone X, but not far behind either in real-life conditions

Display

  • Looks pretty good, with a beautiful, tall edge-to-edge display
  • The quality of the large display itself is very good - it's crisp and bright, with punchy colours and excellent viewing angles - everything from text to movies looks great, and you will find ourselves feeling immersed especially with video

Software

  • Oppo's custom skin on Android, called ColorOS, is pretty expansive but also quite polished (with a lot of elements inspired by iOS
  • Bloatware is thankfully restricted to a few apps - Facebook, WPS Office and Amazon's Shopping and Prime Video apps
  • There are also useful add-on features like Clone Apps, Game Acceleration, and Gesture support

Performance

  • Good, reliable performance throughout - compares well to its main competitors like the Honor 9i and Vivo V7 Plus - and is generally similar to Snapdragon 625 in terms of performance
  • Strong connectivity suite - the Helio P23 chipset supports Dual SIM, Dual standby, as well as simultaneous VoLTE/ViLTE on both SIM slots

Camera

  • Pretty decent rear camera - does well even in low light, details come out well, and colours pop
  • Videos also come out quite sharp and smooth under different lighting conditions
  • Very good front camera too - does a very good job in most conditions, and there is also a whole new "AI-powered" selfie enhancement feature - easily one of the best selfie cameras you will get in this price bracket

Audio

  • The built-in speaker is decent, delivering generally clear and rich audio in games and videos
  • Average bundled headset

Battery

  • Good battery life - you will be able to get a day and a half of usage out of the Oppo F5 on a single charge, with moderate use
  • No support for fast charging - takes about an hour to get to 50% charge

More

  • On the whole, as far as phones with extra-large screens go, this one is fairly easy to use and handle, and that's a big plus that goes in its favour
  • On the whole, its a good all-round phone and comes out ahead of competition like the Vivo V7+ and Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro
  • Uses the older Micro-USB port instead of the more modern Type-C standard
