One of the great frustrations in the mobile world is seeing a new handset released, only to find that it is either unavailable in the UK or available in limited supplies via an invite-only scheme. Oppo, the Chinese manufacturer, is a perfect example of this. It’s Find
If you’re after the Oneplus One then OppoMart seem to have trimmed the price a little. Instead of $399 (£252.14) it’s reduced by $50 if you enter the code “ONE50F” at the checkout. This’ll bring it down to $349, or £220.55, plus you get an official case.
Oppo are on a roll today. Their new flagship, the N3, has just been formalized and now we’ve got this, the Oppo R5. It’s made using “reinforced industrial grade aluminum alloy” and it’s also hand-crafted in ceramic too. However, the big selling point here is the thickness
Oppo have just announced the N3 and, as we expected, the camera spins round. Not only that, but there’s a Bluetooth remote control which lets you move the camera remotely and snap photos. You can also use this to listen to some tunes. Built using industrial-grade aluminium,
Can you remember the Oppo Find 7/7a? I had one earlier in the year and whilst being fairly impressed with it, it only ran Jelly Bean with the Color OS skin on top. Well Oppo have pushed out a new ROM for the Find 7/7a which is
Phone manufacturer Oppo has released the above photo of their rumoured next device the Oppo N3, with what appears to be a rotating rear camera module at the top of the device, which we first saw the N1, enabling the high quality selfie, which seems to be
The Oppo N1 was one of the most intriguing devices of recent times, with its rotating camera, enormous display and touch sensitive back panel, many people round the world got one, thanks somewhat to the Cyanogenmod support. So it makes sense that Oppo are going to release
When I reviewed the Oppo Find 7a I was rather cross that they had split the internal memory in a kind of “it’s 2012 that’s how things are done” way. It basically left the device crippled, with only about 3GB of internal memory left for apps. It
Oppo are famed for their reasonably priced phones with decent specs and features. They’re also famed for being a bit slow at updating anything and also making ludicrous decisions that will inhibit their customers enjoyment of their products. But hey they’ve gone and announced a new phone.
In the mobile industry the word “flagship” is banded around a lot, it refers to any manufacturers current top end device. With every company out there having one it’s often hard to decide which one you want for yourself. I’m lucky enough to have a few of
Unified storage is something we’ve come to take for granted these days, your shiny new phone or tablet has an internal memory dying for you to fill it with your junk. That memory is one nice big lump with no restrictions on what you can put where.
We’ve been waiting for what seems like a lifetime for this phone, but finally after all this time it’s avaliable to pre order. The Oppo Find 7 is avaliable from the Oppo Store and priced at 479 Euros. It’s avaliable in the Astro Black or the White. The
In this day and age now and again you have to take a punt on something, just in case you’ve found something special. That’s exactly what I did with the Oppo Find 7a. But is it a dud? No its not, you’ll have to read on to
Following on from the Oppo N1 with its gigantic 5.9-inch screen and a 206-degree rotating camera, today the company has unveiled a mini version of the N1 … called… errr… the mini. Now for a device named “mini”, a 5 inch screen device perhaps isn’t the first
The Oppo N1 was a cracking great old big phone, Ronnie reviewed it a few months ago and in line with the rest of the world Ronnie decided that it was just a bit too big and didn’t have 4G. Oppo seem to have decided to addressed
The OnePlus One is a fairly unique device, or it is in the software stakes anyway. Running a unique version of Cyanogenmod, which was made specifically for the OnePlus One and many people are itching to port it to their devices. Not too surprisingly the first device
Oppo are slowly getting a name for themselves in the Western world, here at Coolsmartphone we’ve bought and reviewed several of their recent flagships. This time round with the Find 7a it was down to me to dig into my pockets and order one. As I’ve only
Oppo are big news at the moment their Find 7 and Find 7a are both about to be released into the world, complete with fancy cameras and even fancier camera software. To help promote the Find 7 / 7a they’ve made a video, a 4 minute 52
The eagerly awaited Oppo Find 7 was announced a few weeks back, with talk of fancy cameras and even fancier specs. The whole world waited to see the first ever 2K device, they showed it off and then showed off a lower spec cheaper version too. The
