i'm Oppo 1206 Neo 5S user since 2015. my Oppo cannot support band 5 (speed for 4G).
Has been used this phone since june 2016 till broke (late october 2017). So here is my experience.
1) After update software (color OS) from default to last update, camera are no longer sharp. Quality camera somehow blur and vid quality turned into sluggish. Canera UI also changed and turned ugly.
2) Very bad ram, 60% of the ram has been reserved and used for/by system. Which is mean, 2016+ apps games and newest/latest games will force quit it self, especially a games that is link with Google Play. Due this shit, my Neo 5s turnes into hang often.
3) What is more worst than that? Internal storage. 8GB total storage but below 4GB is useable.
4) Batteries life. After used for 4 month the batteries drained fast and charging sometimes fast sometimes took longer time to be fully charged (still batteries life is bad). Since batteries turned worst I have no option but to use power saving mode on all time.
My oppo neo 5s has been damaged as I accidentaly dropped it into box fulled of water. It still work after that (by keep turned of and dry them for a week) but screen is already damaged. Later the screen has been fully damaged as no longer show any images and keep blank. Now Ive been wondered does it ia worth to fix it or not..
P/S: please keep note that Oppo Neo 5 has 2 variant. Neo 5 (2015) is 16gb internal storage but dont have 4G while Neo 5s ia 8gb variant and has 4G. If you still mistook your neo 5 is neo 5s and keep complaint it doesnt have 4G then I have to say that Im so sad to you.
Said it could be a 4g network, but can not? How to enable 4g ​​network?
This phone is good but let me clarify one important thing that its main OS is Color Os which is an android based OS,since it comes with google play so its really doesn't matter at all,over all good phone for new android users :)
Can someone help me? My neo5 is almost 1yr and 5months, but now can't read my two sim.. how can I fix it?
bought mine last 08/10/2016.. got the 16gb Lolli Ver.
I am honestly impressed with the unit's display, given its only qHD, its bright enough and has above average viewing angles. having a low res display wont put too much toll on its battery as well.
The handset's BUILD is also one of the factors, its tough and dureable, the back plate is fingerprint-magnet but I had purchased a case for it so its not gonna be an issue.
The BATTERY has been splendid, batt reading will not drop on my 8-hr sleep unlike previous mobile devices I used. When on mobile data, I have observed a 1% drop only every 4mins.
AUDIO output via loudspeaker is bit of a letdown, a bit soft to my liking, but when used with a headphone, the HI-DIRAC option helps to increase audio quality. It has a kick of bass and treble and mids are both clean.
I have Vivo Y51, Acer Z630, Zenfone Go 5.5 and Oppo Neo 7 all on my list as they all have a 5990 Php SRP hence I got to save 1k Php more with my purchase of the Neo 5... no regrets, its very useable and the looks alone of the phone is indeed very elegant and stylish!
RAM is very poor. Hence expect any latency if you are heavy user
overall the phone is quiet good
Very good phone in this price range. 4G Lte working very fine, good sound during call.
Over all best phone.

Okay, its been about 2 months I use Oppo Neo 5s. Im not expert user, heavy user or knowing well about smartphones but I do know little about it. So here is my review.
The ui is nice, and friendly user. However, to view RAM usage, you need to long-pressing option button instead home button. Hold home button will launch search engine. Pre-installed Android 4.2 is somewhat downward.
The camera is also work excellent. It comes with various mode which you can add or remove it. New firmware update will change camera UI. The camera also has expert mode, so user can adjust camera manually with limited settings. Night scene mode also make dark/night picture well, though still can see some noise. Meanwhile, front camera are not good, also too much noise in low light.
Performance also work well, it does has little hang due RAM, but it still can be ignored. The RAM is however very poor. Since the phone use Color OS and Android system, pre installed system took about 70% RAM, which is can be considered as very, very worst RAM. 1GB RAM system won't be satisfied you, as 70% system's RAM will interfere your use. The apps might crash or force closed itself if RAM usage too much.
For gaming, it was great phone. It won't getting hot much as convenient cover design. Most 3D apps also work well on this devices.
Battery usage is somehow might frustrated for 4G user. Battery was long-lasting about 8 hours only if 4G mobile data was turned on. 10 hours if 3G, while 12-15hours with wifi. Charging time also took about 2 hours from 2%-95%. Keep note this is from my experience, and may vary, depending of your usage.
Other cool features on this phone is it comes with eye protect mode, which will change your phone display into inconvenient screen but might not strain your eyes. Enabling auto-prevent mode will protect your screen from being touch if something block the sensor (beside front camera) if your phones wake up from sleep, more likely very useful in your pocket. It also come with double tap gesture to wake up ypur phones by tapping twice, or sleep it by double tap home button. There's also Night mode(quite time) too.
From my view:
Me: Love this phone!
