This def will have a lot of people drooling over. Hopefully to see a career to pick it up. I still would like to see 3000+mAh battery in this baby. Since it has a beautiful 5" screen and I would probably never lock it >"

The problem is that other than samsung & may be htc nocompany stands for its cell phones as regards software but i have no doubt that this will be one of the best cell phones from the aspect of hardware esp. the camera which i expect it to be the best on the surface by the time it's realeased.

Again crippled by storage?!?
Can't believe that logic!
With an SD slot this would've EASILY been the best phone on the planet

It's easy to understand, this lack of storage appeals to carriers and small players like Oppo need strong support from the carriers to sell their phones.

Why would a lack of storage appeal to carriers? That just seems to go against all logic. I'm not doubting the fact that it is indeed the case (see AT&T's version of the HTC One XL), but I just don't understand why

The less storage the phone has, the more the user has to connect to the carriers network for content, so the carriers earn more.

Storage is always the Achilles Heel for flagship devices.
Guess an sd slot is too much to ask. I was really hoping that this will be my new phone.

This is similar to Butterfly design but not as sexy, but the specs is better and much cheaper.

Looks very promising, but Oppo has announced many crazy phones before and released nothing so we have to wait and see.

Really? i thought this looks better than the butterfly. The rounded design of htc can't compete with the oppo. Looks like a thin lumia.

I think manufacturers should consider making a smartphone with a spec like their flagships but in smaller size. I like big screens but I think 5" is overkill. At least pity the people with small hands

Big FAIL!!! A full HD phone with just 16GB storage and NO expandable micro sd card slot!!! Why did they put all this amazing tech in and do that!? I was waiting MONTHS for this phone :(

I wanted this phone so badly - I was willing to forgive the non-removable battery but no micro sd card is also a security issue. I save all my personal stuff on my external micro sd storage so if the phone ever did conk out or something and I cannot turn it on, I can always manually remove the micro sd and drop it off for service with any unknown person in peace. This trend of no micro sd's is really shameful for the phone industry, especially when Sammy has shown us it's possible to have a slim profile and yet have removable micro sd and battery.
Hope Samsung's S4 adopts this design language (sharp edged corners that are more business like and not soft pansy pebble shaped round corners) with all the high end specs. That would be a kill-them-all S4

That is really a pity. Maybe a wifi drive is an option for you? Or devices with generate a "cloud" like the iusbport. That is not the cheapest and best solution, but then again it's an option to get along with.

27. someones4 (Posts: 625; Member since: 16 Sep 2012)

I second that. Will have to wait for the sony odin or galaxy s4.
Also to Mr.tango_charlie: by right, the manufacturers should cater to the customers' needs. We shouldn't have to bother ourselves to get around this inconvenience. No offence, but that's a job for Apple customers

I said this before and ill say it again. Why are we moving backwards in storage? Its inexcusable. My Droid X from two years ago came with 8gb internal and an included 16gb memory card but with a 1ghz processor. Now sh*t like the DNA has quad core processors but a measly 11gigs to do something. How couldn't they understand how dumb this is. Guess what? Vice City, Need for Speed, and Modern Combat 4 add up to about 7 gigs. Thats just three top notch games. And this memory is supposed to be shared with all media on the phone? Even on my note 2 I ran out of memory in 2 days. But the blessing of the note 2 with it's memory card slot is that I can use a mod from xda to make my 64gb card my internal. Its a POSSIBILITY that comes with just having the slot there in the first place. Wake up HTC, OPPO, LG, and GOOGLE!!

120 fps video capture, but just 16GB (13GB available for user). Nice going Oppo. This is like buying a super sports car with a 10l fuel tank. So that will be a very short "joyride".

Only samsung phones are fully complete. Almost all other brand makes flawed flagships.

That is so true. The only shortcoming of samsung is in the material used not being premium. However, the plastic used does not look or feel bad at all.

$150 more for a bigger and better screen with a better camera but slower updates.
Nexus 4.

Everything must complete with the Nexus 4

Just think how fast 1080P video at 120 fps will chew through that 16GB of internal storage. These manufacturers should start surveying their customers. People like to be able to select their memory inexpensively (micro SD). AND, if the phone totally craps out, gets smashed, etc... They want to be able to actually remove their micro SD card and go their merry way. How much can it possible add to the cost of a phone to include micro SD functionality?!? High speed 64GB micro SD cards can be readily had for

I agree. If they dont want to sacrifice the device being bulky by adding sd card slot, they should've put 64gb. HTC upped the storage of the One X+ without changing the dimensions.

33. jibraihimi (Posts: 764; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)

Really I can't believe the logic behind just 16GB internal memory and no memory card slot............... Everything about this phone is great except internal memory, they should have asked HTC for their experience with One x. HTC has become wiser now has launched HTC Butterfly with memory card slot.......... I just want to ask Oppo that what is the use of 120fps recording or FullHD recording or Full HD video playback in it device, if we can store more than two fullHD movies in our smartphones, and since 4G hasn't reached every country of the world, so cloud is not an option for majority of people, as uploading files of big size would be reall pain............ So Oppo there is still some time, try to increase internal memory or add micro sd card slot on this device........

no micro sd slot = one customer lost. this will be the standard flagship setup in 2013 so buyers will have more options.

Maybe Oppo will be a contender to design the next Nexus device? I hope Google considers it and if they pick them and do build it, I'd definietely buy it! I like Oppo's clean, polished and expensive-looking designs on their devices.
