Oppo has always offered great build quality on their smartphones and they have outdone themselves with their latest R9s. The design is far from original, but the execution trumps most phones on the market - it's thin and light and the six-string antenna design is the first of its kind.
Oppo R9s review
Recently, a sub-genre of the 5.5" premium mid-range market emerged and the R9s is among the best of them. These phones focus on camera performance and battery life, without going full flagship.
The camera is certainly flagship grade on paper - with the latest Sony sensor that supports Dual Pixel autofocus and a very bright f/1.7 lens plus 4K 2160p video capture, the Oppo R9s challenges the best of the 2016 camera phones. A 16MP camera on the front promises great selfies too.
Oppo chose to power the phone with an efficient (if not fast) Snapdragon 625 and paired it with a generous helping of memory - 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
You won't see brashly advertised, but the phone bears a 5.5" AMOLED screen, which will render the vibrant ColorOS theme beautifully
Oppo is a good quality phone in india, and oppo cemra also good then super quality of disply much better.

Look, what was bad in Z5? SD810. Except that, t had SD card, dual stereo speakers, no fingerprints magnet "frosted glass" and waterproofing.
What was bad in LG G4 AND Moto X pure? SD808 coupled with QHD screen. both had excellent cameras, and beautiful leather and wooden backs.

My 2 year old phone is much, much better in real world experience
One thing I realised : Oppo is certainly nice when it comes to design language. All of Oppo phones, including mid-range and some entry-level ones are made to look like iPhones. But I have no friends who use Oppo so I can't really confirm about its real world usability.
But thanks a lot gsmarena, Your reviews certainly matter (at least to me)

Then decide if you could accept the performance.

Perhaps rather than being more critical, reviewers could focus on what differentiates a particular device. Some folks really need an IR blaster and a radio, some need the latest updates ASAP, size is a big deal, and so on. I'm impressed with a lot of phones and I enjoy reading about them but it is annoying when some reviewer just nitpicks at little details (it's like being able to walk on water and having someone say it's just because you can't swim :-))
whether they think the 6 line antenna its still like iphone 6 overall
sam, 07 Dec 2016Dude one plus, oppo, vivo are all child companies of parent bbk electronics lolYes I know. But they operate differently, with different strategies, different product lines and different products. that's why Oppo and Vivo are overpriced and oneplus is one of the most value for money, isn't it? and I was just saying that OP3 is better than this crap, from where the topic of parent company comes?

Jony b, 05 Dec 2016And of course lack of security updapes. My Oppo r7 plus still on lolipop no updapes.you want latest updates all the time?ok then go get a google phone then you will always get the latest and greatest
Jony b, 05 Dec 2016And of course lack of security updapes. My Oppo r7 plus still on lolipop no updapes.Sounds to me you live for updates, enjoy your phone for what it is, no one phone needs that many updates, it's all in the head?
Is it only me or gsmarena is praising every phone they are reviewing. I am not blaming or being hypocrite but as "The Verge" stated," it is more difficult to make a bad phone than a good one these days "so critics should be more critical while reviewing. What do you guys think? I am in for negative replies also.

Oppo is famous for overpriced products and this is no exception. Yes I know built quality is excellent and display is AMOLED, but so is the one plus 3 with almost same price.
