Well , as one of those who owns an oppo r5 , i strongly advise you guys not to buy it .
This is my reasons:
1. Oppo itself has stop publishing new version of system of oppo r5. Now it is still android 4.4.4.
(Even android 8.0 oreo has been published, Dafuq.)
2.Oppo r5 has a poor performance on multi tasking .
Example: When i am opening whatsapp , and then i got a notification from facebook. So, i switch to facebook.But then , when i come back to whatsapp in just about 30 seconds , the whole application was killed by oppo.
(what the heck too. Imagine when you playing moba games such as veinglory and a phone call came)
3.Oppo r5 is kinda lag when activating the keyboards . When you are tying to type message , you need to wait about 30 second for the keyboards to be activated.
4.It has a very very tiny volume of battery .
For me , when playing moba games such as veinglory , mobile legend , the battery runs out at about 3 or 4 matches.
5.It is using a headphone jack , which means , if you lost it , you can't use headphone anymore.
Last time , my headphone jack had malfunctioned , i went through all shops , even oppo China shops doesn't sell it. But , at last i finally got my new headphone jack from TaoBao .
Disclamier: I am just giving opinion base on my experiences , and not hereby to critise Oppo
or any of it's product .
I have one dead unit now according to oppo need to replace motherboard, but its only corrupted, 6K is the cost of replacement. No software avilable. Please help.
my oppo R5 is not working .. i think the battery is drained and now its not charging.. what will i do? thanks
R5 is a good phone to have. good performance but sometime got a bit laggy but you just need to kills other running apps and it working just fine .solid body but not solid button. I drop it on an edge and dented the volume button but still can use perfectly until I restart the phone. it always goes to colorOS recovery mode. I don't know whether the damage is related to my problem but i send the phone to repair already. hopefully they can fix it.
anyway, I recommend to buy this phone.

This phone is absolutely cool in looking but the problem is too expensive for a fast heating phone.
