The OPPO Find 5 in black

The OPPO Find 5 has all of the specs that a power user needs including 2GB of RAM, a quad-core processor, 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5 inch FHD display with a 441ppi pixel density. One thing it didn't have was a choice of colors for its unibody polycarbonate casing. All of the pictures we've seen of the device, displayed the phone in white. Even our review model was dressed in white. But that is about to change.

OPPO has announced that starting on April 1st, its flagship model will be available in black in China. We can't remember seeing another phone that looked so different in black than it did in white. The black version of the OPPO Find 5 has a sleek elegance to it, something that doesn't come out in the white model. Pricing has not been disclosed, but if it is like the white version, we're talking about $499 for 16GB model and $569 for 32GB. Both prices are contract-free, of course.

Even though it is from China, the Find 5 is still gorgeous.

It's probably the fact that we see so many knockoffs and similar stupid crap coming from China that China now has a bad name in tech, which isn't always true.

It's a looker! Too bad the IPS screen is an absolute battery killer. Everything else is so impressive. :(

Of the S4 Pro FHD phones, I'd still choose this one. But the Octa-core variant of the Galaxy SIV upped the game in specs and features, and it not that much more expensive, so we'll see.

I currently have the White Oppo Find 5 as a Beta phone and I have gotten a day and a half with normal usage. The battery is pretty big and do get some great battery life.

Wait Im excited.....well not really as they will never release it beyond their shores which decreases the real world value of the item significantly. Ah well.

Take note, Sammy. This is what a gorgeous phone looks like. Like the HTC One X, it falls short only in expanded memory and removable battery. Otherwise, a home run!

Except for the camera quality as well, especially take a look at the flash enabled photos that was a bit of a let down for me. Perhaps the next Oppo phone will be even better looking and fix more of these drawbacks.
