Everyone is mumbling this Xiaomi phone. Yes it's got good specs and cheaper pricing but how come it doesn't have official stores in the Ph? If you buy it then where would bring it for repair? Unless of course it's totally unbreakable. Oppo, on the other hand has lots of official stores, therefore it gains your trust of its legitimacy and security.
AnonD-214858, 07 Apr 2018since when is oppo budget friendly? i find their phone expensive compare to xiaomi or honorHahaha. Crazy. Oppo f5 is a great phone.
Apart from horrible software the rest of the phone is rather low-midrange stuff.for the same money you can have Xiaomi Mi6 which is far superior in every way...or some Honor devices...
Phone as is good but what's irritating ia software, ideally hate this color os, can't install any other launcher, no app drawer, can't even install any widgets, Upon that no software updates. Its my last oppo phone won't buy in future.
Another issue with OPPO phones is they don't provide updates to Android OS. I've had the R9S from day one and only had some very minor updates, none of which changed the android version. Pathetic software support for what was their flagship phone at the time.
in Indonesia this phone only last for 6 months before the oppo f7 launch. my friend got frustrated because he just got this phone for 4 months.. it is very short time for oppo to renew their phone.
Oppo auto terminate process is good to keep cpu and ram usage controlled and the phone performance faster all the time, other android phone after a few days running without restarted or manually clear memory became sluggish, laggy and hot..
Oppo F5 is better option than Huawei mate 10 lite And other Samsung phones in this price range resale value is not Good enough but phone performance satisfactory specially battery life

AnonD-214858, 07 Apr 2018since when is oppo budget friendly? i find their phone expensive compare to xiaomi or honorI didn't say that OPPO's smartphones are budget friendly, but they are one of the budget smartphone manufacturers. I mean that there are many other better alternatives in the low-end and mid-end segment that is little cheaper or a little expensive than OPPO but gives a much better experience than OPPO, this includes how often it receives software updates. For the low-end and mid-end segment, I would recommend Sony, Motorola, HUAWEI, and XIAOMI, probably OnePlus too for their older smartphones; they may have sort of discontinued the predecessors, but some are still selling out there, the best alternative if the person's budget is as close as their high-end flagships, hence they can opt out other mid-end options

Shanti Dope, 06 Apr 2018Okay, so I was long and about, thinking of my next phone, and it's between the Huawei Mate 10 ... moreGo for Redmi or Xperia X dont worry about 16:9 ratio its not going to be obselete and dont expect a major android update on mid range only a few gets them so its better to buy a phone with android nougat if not oreo out of box cause nougat is relevent for atleast 3 more years (I am still using kitkat 4.4.2 lol) check out honor 8 dont know its exact price but should be close and if you dont care about ROS honor 7x is a great option but it has same gpu as mate 10 lite
