OPPO Style up their warranty to 2 years after customer feedback

OPPO Style are the new kids on the European block, but it seems like they’re making the right impression, because only two days after they launched their European web store they’ve already doubled their warranty period to two years.

In a press release (below) they state that customers have queried why there’s only one year warranty when legally they need to provide two years in some European countries.

Rather than only honouring the legal minimum, OPPO simply raised the warranty across the board. Not just to Europe though, this is worldwide including all past customers.

This backs up the commitment to user feedback they claim to have, promising regular software updates based on customer comments.

I’ve been really impressed by the 399 Euro OPPO Find 5, their flagship phone, and I continue to hear predominantly good things about both the company and phones. I can even feel temptation snapping at my wallet as I type!

Stay tuned to see if my will power fails, but until then take a look at the specs of the Find 5, then OPPO’s press release underneath.

    I have always been a little miffed that operators sell you a phone on a 24 month contract but only provide the warranty for one of those! It could fail after 12 months and you’d be stuffed for another year.

    Never heard of these guys until now, but I like the cut of their jib. Also the camera is interesting – 120fps capture rate? I’d love to try that out!

      Most manufacturers give a 2 year warranty (apart from Apple and LG) so networks and independents are able to fix phones for free within that time. Not sure about other countries, may need to go through manufacturer direct.

        Ah, wasn’t aware of that. So HTC and Samsungs have 2 years? I knew Apple only had one year, but this really shows them up if they are in the minority.

        • Iain McLaren

          Yes, HTC, Samsung, Nokia and Sony (Ericsson) all come with 2 years and have done for some time. Not sure on Motorola, Blackberry is 2 years as well I think.
