720p over 300ppi is enough, I think.. but real Innovation is always welcome!

Watch HD movies of course haha. Just kidding. I'm siding with you. After a point, it's a little pointless. We have nice HDTV or nice monitor for a reason, so we can watch movies, play games on those 40+ inches 1080p TVs. However, I don't mind to look at a beautiful phone screen like that though :P

1080p is gud for tabs but no diff on phones

i want 300ppi on a 80" TV.
Oppo, deliver it to me

Yeah a 300 ppi 80" tv would be perfect for watch all those movies that are record in a 24000p format?
I do not see why you would need a 24000p television...

Oppo creates high end Blu-Ray players, so if this has the same build quality & tech as that......This will be a beast of a phone.

I think this will start selling in 4 months at best.
HTC could beat it to the market, but nevertheless..hats off to Chinese

who can find the diffrence between 720p and 1080p ugh..

I agree. There is a point where you won't notice much difference unless you want to have the phone right in your face. Besides, processing those pixels will only waste battery. I like innovation but somethings are dispensable.
27. jaytai0106 (Posts: 1747; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)
Totally agree!! I think any screen is less than 5" doesn't really need 1080p. 720p is enough. Let's solve the battery crisis people!!

This! Blows away the competition, Oppo-gangnam style.

Lol I enjoyed it a little, points for trying.

What is disappointing is that from a spec position it probably will be the first but in the long run a memory as the company who made it has not enough prescence to champion on specs alone.
17. whysoserious (Posts: 317; Member since: 20 Jul 2012)
I totally agree. With these specs, I would be very much willing to trade my Galaxy s3 plus all my legendary Pokemon trading cards for this one.

Wireless charging? Doesn't look like there's a charging port on any of the surfaces in image 3.

Oppo launch this beast worldwide before the launch of Note 2, Optimus G and Full HD phablet from HTC, and you can sure have the marketshare more than that of RIM by the end of this year............. :)

Oppo made the world thinnest smartphone and now they'll be the first to introduce a smartphone with a 1080 screen. Time for oppo to make a global launch. These handsets would definitely sell well, it will truly be a waste if they sell them only in china or taiwan...
