Leeroy, 07 Dec 2013I wander how many people that complain about phones being too big for pockets have actually us... moreI double that, don't have any issues whatsover ever with my Optimus G Pro. Only inconvenience I have is when i have to operate it while standing in a bus / train :P
5.7" screen? Paki explain. -___- they should have made it with the N1... i rather have a phone between 4.7-5" only.
I wander how many people that complain about phones being too big for pockets have actually used or owned the phones they are complaining about?
I had a mega 6.3 and it fit in my pockets comfortably with room to spare
Looks nice! Add a pen and it'll be serious competition at the top of the market with Note 3.
This looks perfect except :
1. No dual sim cards.
2. Oppo is a Chinese brand but they are trying to sell it at premium price which sometimes more expensive than those Japs and Korean brands which spent much budget for advertisement.
If only they sell it at lower price...
Great spect, and just right screen, but only lack dual sim, then it will definately have my money and fit well in my pocket.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2013Hmmm, I've been working selling mobile phones for a large UK retailer for over 8 years. Not on... moreUhhhh? You might wanna read my comment again friend. No one said 4" screen with 1080p screen? I specifically said a reasonably sized phone with high end specs.
And of course no one's said 5 inch is too big. CAUSE THERE IS NO 4" HIGHER END MARKET! You're tellin' me. If there were 4" Samsung Galaxy's & LG G2's available people would still prefer the 5 inch variant??? And I'm not talkin' about those lesser Samsung devices. I'm talkin' a full on S4.
Why do you think Apple is so successful? The market is created by those who produce it. If I sell tomatoes, you buy tomatoes. Mobile phones today have became somewhat of a necessity. So if 5" phones are the only phones available, what do you think the people are going to buy? A 5" phone. That doesn't mean there's no demand for 4". That just means, they haven't created it.
I like it. Foe those of you who thinks 5.7" is too big, let me ask you: did you actually hold one in your hands? I have Note 3 and it fits perfectly in all of my pants, sits comfortably in my hands, watching video is superb and surfing on the net is finally worth doing.
If Samsung release 5.9" Note 4 next year, I am in.
I agree with you!
I was actually excited about the specs up until the 5.7" part. I think 5" is big enough.
Been carrying around Note II LTE for over a year now. When I upgrade, I'm not going bigger, but rather smaller!
we always hear about a better technologie will be on some chinese phones like oppo huawei & meizu (remember that one cause of the shop at Saiga) but never happens or after months later when all the freshness is gone .
AnonD-147044, 06 Dec 2013Could you give a detailed technical explenation about hwy that's the case? no you can't since ... morelarger phone means larger are to include more compobents. more free space to make phone cooler. also larger battery. also larger display cost less to make then smaller display of same resolution. due to lower ppi.
Everyone here is so shortsighted and are missing the point. This phone will be sizzling hot running at 2.5ghz and at 5.7" it's the perfect size for making grilled cheese sandwiches.
So all you people quit complaining about nobody innovating as Oppo has just created the first smartphone grill.

AnonD-183110, 06 Dec 2013yes, yes it is. But S5 will be "all killer" :Dactually LG G3 is.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2013I use a 5.5" now, but will replace it with something sub-5". It's too big for a phon... moreA 5.1" will barely fit into my shirt pocket (although the top of the phone sticks out) and into my pant pockets, BUT it makes the pant leg feel tight when I sit down and it's a bit tricky to handle with one hand (shifts to and from portrait/landscape when I reach across the keyboard to type), so that's the limit for me.
I can see girls with purses and metrosexuals with manbags go bigger ;)
