The Oppo R9 is a good phone for the price - the interface is slick, it is powerful and big. Generally it is a nice phone.
BUT, it really struggles with apps and notifications - if you're a power user, it really is a let down with the apps - notifications are intermittent - they drop in and out for god knows what reason.
It is effectively incompatible with a smart watch - it works sometimes but mostly not at all.
Quiet mode is a real pain - works sometimes and not others (woken up to late night messages - and when I turned volume down (because I was relying on alarm and didn't want to turn it off) the alarm volume shared the general volume meaning - the alarm was still going half an hour after it started when I woke up and realised it was silent!!!
Generally, it is a good phone and I like it but when it comes to advanced features - it really sucks
Terrible phone much of the software I use from Google Play will not work yet the same software worked on my Note 4 which is much older. I would not recommend this phone. Oppo also have a terrible returns policy, steer clear!
Probably the best performing phone I have ever used.
One complaint only----- No menu button!
Oppo R9 Plus, If you want to use two Sims, Don't buy it because Oppo R9+ is not real dual Sim, if you use 2G and 3G or 2G and 4G that is ok, but it does not work for two Sims 3G and 4G or 4G and 4G at the same time, because Oppo R9+ one Sim need to rely 2G, but now 2G will be eliminated, so only one Sim call make a call and received, the other Sim only can make emergency call.
Don't buy it that Oppo company is big scammer.
Shit quality software. Never gonna get that Nougat or Marshmallow update. I regret buying this phone.

Yes the chinese color OS 3.0 has several areas that dont switch to english. Its my only real complaint after uing the phone since released.
You will need to install Google Play so can get Playstore and load your favorite apps. Loaded store is chinese version and useless for english speaker.
THE GOOD: Great battery life with 4120ma, made even better with VOOC Charging... I can fully charge from zero in about hour plus fifteen mins. CANT LIVE WITHOUT IT!
Good overall performance for my needs.
Love Dual Sim as i travel around Asia and need two sims.
Fingerprint unlock works flawlessly.

Anonymous, 16 Nov 2016Could a user of the Oppo R9 Plus comment if the phone lets you save apps to memory card or not. No. As adoptable storage has only started from Android Marshmallow and it has lollipop
