phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 8 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Gorgeous sleek profile - this phone exudes style
  • Metal frame feels solid, well-built and premium
  • Ergonomic design
  • Very good display - bright and sharp, with vibrant colors
  • Android with Oppo's custom ColorOS UI on top, that adds nice optimizations, and looks good
  • Very good camera
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Decent call quality
  • Useful quick-charge feature (can charge the phone up to 75% in 30 minutes)

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The phone's thin frame doesn't help with the heat and it can get uncomfortably hot at times
  • No 3.5mm audio jack, so you'll have to use Bluetooth headphones if you want to listen to music
  • Average battery life
