So Bloody annoying this phone. Paid $800 and expected software that works.
Default messaging app - only allows 15 messages to be sent. On top of that it will try and send group messages to a random mix of emails and home phone numbers. It does not choose mobile numbers. This is really annoying. To make matters worse if you change to a third party app like textra it comes up with a crappy message " For you messages security, system message app has been set as the default message app." WTF OPPO.
On top of that it is a flag ship phone and it is only running Marshmellow 6.0 and not Nougat 7.1. with no timeframe for updates if at all. To make matters even worse the phone is made in two different factories and has two totally different motherboards with two different cpu's so if you can find a rom to flash it may brick your phone... You have to download cpuid or something to check... Please Oppo fix these issues. I have rung the help department so many times... Ok and one more thing, it started to bloat and we could not delete temp files... I ended up with 60GB of temp files and had to flash the phone to stock. In the process a message came up "memory full - do you want to transfer to your sd card - I said yes - It wiped all my photos. Thank you so much OPPO.
Initially thought it was good value but after 3 months of use I would like to destroy it. It does so many things wrong and unexplainable changes or loses a web page stops working suddenly for a while and there are so many features that a very difficult nigh impossible to remove ie: lock screen photo that I unfortunately added. Wished I had stuck with Samsung.
Got week ago from China black model.
Since I use before S5 it's a big step for me how big is phone.
I didnt have any problem to set up all stuff, my m8 from China set up it on ENG and rest I do myself. There is only a bit problematic set up push notification for some apps but after a while I figure how to allow all apps to show push notifications.
Camera is very nice, for my taste maybe too high brightnes but autofocus work perfect. Selfie camera is also pretty ok. I am not amazed with video but it's ok.
Battery is pretty cool 2 days with decent use for big phone like this one is for me ok. Charging with vooc is pretty fast...
ColorOS is hm, um somehow odd but since I am not too much for custom customazation I am ok with it.
Maybe they can find better solution for photo section and how to orginize it, but there is plenty other apps for it.
Overall I am pretty satisfied with phone. 4g work good and everything else.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2017don't believe you i have one and it works fineyeah....don't belived your statement also! Mine works perfectly well on 4G.
finally i got my self a oppo R9plus yesterday. I've been using Oppo find 7 and loving Oppo brand ever since. As i find now R9 if ringstone for notifications could separated & volume like find 7 even better!
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2017don't believe you i have one and it works fineGo to service centre and upgrade to both 4G.
I got the R9s Plus with Woolworths Mobile in Australia three weeks ago, phone works flawlessly, no real complains - a former iphone user, glad I made the switch.
Came across a problem where the Personal Hotspot (either via wireless, usb or bluetooth) does not let data through to the connected device. There was no issues with the connection, just no data passes through.
Have spoken with Woolworths Mobile and Oppo Support but they were unable to resolve the issue, a replacement phone is on the way... This is rather frustrating cos I spent alot of time setting up and customising the phone.
Anyone out there experiencing the same issue? Provide some details if possible...
OppoFoneOwner, 23 Dec 2016Shit quality software. Never gonna get that Nougat or Marshmallow update. I regret buying this... moreIts the launcher you are talking about not the phone. Try Apex or Nova from the google playstore. It will transform your phone into what you were probably used to on normal android but allows so much more (nova allows 12 horizontal rows of icons on one homescreen). Don't judge the phone. The R9 Plus is amazing... You just have to tweak it a bit by changing the UI
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2016Probably the best performing phone I have ever used. One complaint only----- No menu button!Use a different launcher. I used apex for years but use nova now because it allows 12 horizontal rows of icons on one homescreen. ColorOS 3.0 ... I never used their standard launcher. I downloaded nova as soon as i bought the phone as i have done with my previous sansungs. It completely changes the UI and is soooo so so customisable its ridiculous. I have one homescreen with all the apps I use just on that screen and have a big weather widget as well. Trust me. Apex or Nova... Either one... And paying for the premium versions is worth it for the extra settings.
I love the half hour charge time to get battery to 100%. Amazing!
It would have been a perfect phone if it can delete failed download tasks. Under Settings - Download Management - Manage Tasks, only has "Pause" and "Continue ". Please add "Delete " so that can remove tasks that cannot be completed.
Secondly, it will really make it more worthy of its price if the volume control is split for Ringtone, Notifications, Media and Alarm.
Looking forward to these improvements in its software update!
Can volume for media, alarm, notifications and ring tone be separated? Seems to be one volume control for all.
Oppo Plz Launch R9 Plus In India
Is Awesome Phone great camera both front & Back
Good Battery Back
Plzzzz launch in India
Is there a keypad sound for R9s plus? I would prefer the sound not the vibrate mode
Couldn't find anywhere.
I just puchased R9s plus... And I found that when calling i can hear over the other party but they cannot hear me at all.
I demand replacement coz I personally , considered 14k NTD as big amount. And as a costumer if its new device u expect it to be well functioning. But they said they will just repair it for me for free..
What about the degraded value if its already repaired..
I've had one for approx 4 months and haven't found an app that doesn't work yet. Has been an excellent phone. never going back to Apple/Samsung.
Only issues is that it's too uncommon and a challenge to find screen protectors/cases in brick and mortar shops. Tons on eBay though.
The Oppo R9 is a good phone for the price - the interface is slick, it is powerful and big. Generally it is a nice phone.
BUT, it really struggles with apps and notifications - if you're a power user, it really is a let down with the apps - notifications are intermittent - they drop in and out for god knows what reason.
It is effectively incompatible with a smart watch - it works sometimes but mostly not at all.
Quiet mode is a real pain - works sometimes and not others (woken up to late night messages - and when I turned volume down (because I was relying on alarm and didn't want to turn it off) the alarm volume shared the general volume meaning - the alarm was still going half an hour after it started when I woke up and realised it was silent!!!
Generally, it is a good phone and I like it but when it comes to advanced features - it really sucks
