The phone looks pretty cool, with high quality materials and assertive design. At 7.1mm, the Oppo R1 feels incredibly slim and refined. What appears like a mix of aluminum and glass gives it a much more expensive feel.
It runs Oppo's Color OS - we saw it on the Oppo N1 last year - which is in essence a color-rich interpretation of Android.
The 5" 720p screen has great colors and viewing angles too. Even at 294ppi it looks pretty sharp.
