Lacks LTE modem and non-removable battery on an older S4 Pro CPU. No idea if there is any localized warranty for repair or replacement meaning you could be offline for weeks. Seems pricey for unestablished OEM outside local market.
Nice sleek design. Decent specs but not entirely leading edge. Will be interesting to see how it lasts and if OEM launches any needed updates to ROM and if upgrade to 4.3 happens.
Conclusion : not enough for price. Without LTE capability its a no-go here in u.s.
Nice specs but overpriced in USA. Why buy a device with prior generation CPU that's not that much less cost than likely superior quality phone from established OEM? And then have to deal with non western versioning of Android OS? For couple hundred more there are S600 devices available.
Nonetheless the Find 5 has very decent specs and seems to have a few good reviews although durability and longevity haven't been substantiated as of yet.
The Opposed Find 5 is likely one if the best devices yet to come out of the mainland but without better track record and with $500 USD price tag it just doesn't seem competitive enough to purchase as primary device. Not to mention should you need warranty service where it would likely be weeks to get replaced or repaired.
Also needs CDMA version if OEM wishes to really penetrate USA market. Which means modem used should have been capable of any/all type networks. Not everyone uses AT&T or T-Mobile.......
Vladolinko, 28 May 2013It looks better than most of the "American/European" phones, also made in China...i agree if this phone looks stylish and very thin, but is this durable?
my phone now is heavy and thick, but still fine even it fall for hundred. is this phone will be the same?
i dont want to buy something expensive if i dont know the durability.

this phone is very good quality. it's not the china low grade phone. wish to have one soon in indonesia, just enter this month \o/
Oppo announced the launch of their European store. The price starts at 399euro for find 5. Just search oppostyle europe.
A minimum of 32G of internal storage ain't what I'd call a 'problem'! And the HTC ONE's superb audio, cam software, design/build quality probably make it the best out there at the mo.
It looks a lot like my old Xperia Arc. Even the ever so slightly curvy back. If I weren't such a Sony fan boy I'd definitely go for this device. (Bought the Z by the way)
problem is the brand. Here in India if I buy a Samsung flagship & use it for an year & resell it in 75% or 70% amount of the current value,where if I buy a Micromax or any other (may it be a great phone), I'll never get more than 40% of the invested amount. So, I have to stick with same device for years.
Everything seems fine with the phone. Except one thing - non removable battery. Because I don't think Oppo has too many service centres in the world (None in India as per my knowledge). So what happens when the battery goes bad? Need to send it back to China for repairs? Thanks, but no Thanks!
