I bought this phone in Thailand last month.
It IS upgradeable (microSD), gets software updates from OPPO (already had one OTA update for some fixes). The dual SIM is both lines active at the same time (not switching on and off). Battery life compares to iPhone 4 and 5. It's a nice phone, great screen. I paid EUR200 approx.

''The handst is just 7.3mm thick and is a featherweight at just 110g, quite impressive for a phone with a 4.7" screen." handst? GSMArena, update your article. Coming to the device, it's a fine mid range phone. Only thing it lacks is the storage slot. Anyway.. Good phone.

> In reply to Sizz @ 2013-08-19 14:05 from f4SI - click to readSamsung Galaxy S3 LTE is much more expensive. Besides we are talking here about dual-SIM smartphones. Most of the dual-SIM (KIRF, China made, you name it) smartphones have low quality build and they are not so well optimized on OS side. But OPPO did a great jod and build quality seems decent. Color ROM is something else, it got some aces in hand should checkout on YouTube about Color ROM, not to say that it got OTA updates. It would be nice if it had 2GB of RAM though.

A decent mid range Android, 1GB RAM, HD720P display, 16GB non expandable and avg. camera.

Does stock android means this phone will get instant update like Nexus phones when a new android version is released?
