Xiaomi, Huawei and Oneplus are doing a much better job at the budget and midrange tier compared to Oppo. If you want to go Chinese, go with either of those three.
ducle2502, 20 Apr 2018Yeah exactly my point: Oppo phones are overpriced knock-offs with little value for money. Onep... moreOPPO is always like that dude, their marketing gimmicks are meant to attract the low-end and mid-end market, to make those people buy, the ones who usually fall for their tricks the easiest are those who don't know anything about technology at all, no offense but, clearly most of the buyers of their smartphones are like that. Their marketing gimmicks, always calling themselves Selfie Expert with the Beauty AI for their cameras, urgh, seriously, it is like when people want the most natural photos possible this brand tries to use filtering as if it is anywhere close to "realism". Besides, in most of the forum sites or news, there isn't anything u hear about OPPO regarding software updates, this is what they had done for years already, while some blind fans of theirs argue that they don't care about software updates, it is still essential for software updates even if it is a minor one like bug fixes or Security Patches, u never know what kind of bug or vulnerability is hiding behind your software. If I were to recommend mid-end smartphones, I'll recommend Sony, SAMSUNG (Even though they are slow with updates, at least they did update their mid-end smartphones at least once), HUAWEI, NOKIA, or Motorola, at least they offer software updates for a little cheaper or a little expensive in price

Oneplus is doing a much better job albeit they came from the same parent company. These Oppo phones just copy the design and throw a chunk of money into marketing to make they seem good, but they don't. So I advise people not to fall for the marketing gimmicks.
ducle2502, 19 Apr 2018Good luck with the horrible software and little to no update at all Sony or Nokia are able to release major update with Mediatek.
If the others don't, it's maybe not Mediatek's faut!
Good luck with the horrible software and little to no update at all
ahmedmansoorkhokhar, 16 Apr 2018mediatak processor??? what the rubbishLook at the specs, it's not that bad
mrtamilmp3.com, 18 Apr 2018Yeah, their own company OnePlus will launch a competitive phone with better specs.Yep,you're right,mate,I'll always support small(er) companies next to big guns.Oneplus was one of them.I mean two years ago my mate bought OnePlus 3,EU edition from China(Aliexpress) for just over $400(350euro).It's still a great phone,but new one(s),5t or 6,they cost (well) over 500euro..That is too much..though you still get a great phone,but I bought equally great Xiaomi Mi6(with better camera and better looking) for 350euro,again from China,and that is a best bang for my buck,Oneplus I reckon isn't,not anymore..

Disappointing to see the mid- low end CPU's being used.. I was a fan of Oppo, but now they're just mid-rangers..
Well,it seems that both of these Oppos (or the new 1+6) are good phones with some decent specs.They look cool,and as GSMA said those are very trendy chinese products...but to call them midrangers,for the price??I mean,510euro($630) for R15 Pro will get you a proper flagship devices...S8,U11,Mate 10,and so on,so aside from beautiful colour options I don`t think they are worth the $$$...
Kaloyan, 16 Apr 2018Battery chapter.sorry my bad, I didn't notice that. Or... may be... There wasn't enough for how bad and annoying this App killing/prohibiting feature is.
ahmedmansoorkhokhar, 16 Apr 2018mediatak processor??? what the rubbishYou should maybe read carefully the review...
With the devices on their hands, gsmarena don't think the same
Somewhat overpriced for the specs to be considered as a bang for the buck device.
JackTheIPhoneKiller, 16 Apr 2018No rant about Oppo's overly aggressive background app killing "habit"?? Battery chapter.
Well my mates, you forget to mention Nokia 7 Plus as an alternative, especially for those who don't want notch. Not everyone are into notches, yet all alternatives you mention are notched phones.
