Oppo Find 5 gets a US info site - $499 nets you Droid DNA specs but a much larger battery

Oppo Find 5 gets a US info site - $499 nets you Droid DNA specs but a much larger battery
The SIM-free Oppo Find 5 can be had in the good ol' USA, too, for $499 - a bit higher than the $478 we heard at first, but we'll chalk it off to the exchange rate flux, while in China it seems to go for $399 on preorder now.

Considering this thing has Droid DNA-like specs, complete with the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, and that sweet 5" Full HD display, it may or may not be a bad deal, depending on the build quality.

The Oppo Find 5 can be examined through a pretty basic Oppo USA website, which doesn't yet allow you to order, and also has 16 GB of internal memory plus 2 GB of RAM, like the Droid DNA, but there's no word on warranty details.

Its radio, however, supports both the T-Mobile and AT&T HSPA+ networks, and the handsets sports a generous 2,500 mAh battery, way larger than the 2,020 mAh unit on the Droid DNA. Whether or not this will translate to much better battery life, remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain - the Chinese are really stepping up their game in the world of high-end Androids. The official unveiling of the Oppo Find 5 will be December 12 in Beijing.

Check Oppo's source link for the full spec sheet and order details, if you want to be brave and exotic carrying around a high-end monster that (almost) nobody will have. Guaranteed.

Sony aint coming as close to this. This design is so minimalistic, yet nice at the same time

Oppo needs to give design tips to the other Android manufacturers. This phone looks great.

Awesome design from the front but the back looks a bit cheap,specs are great too, this is how a simple and stylish phone looks like.

Resolution is 1 thing, can the screen quality match DNA? And the CPU looks suspect too, but good try nevertherless.

if it's even not it's just 500 $ man

By the time Oppo reaches the US market I think DNA can be even cheaper than $500.

It's the same screen from Sharp that the DNA has, and it is the same SoC (APQ8064).

18. MeoCao unregistered

Screen quality depends a lot on color calibration, and one company can do a better job than another with the same screen. Yeah, the CPU is the same but Oppo obviously lacks LTE

Its pretty obvious you dont like it because of where it comes from.

u r right, I don't think the Chinese can make better phones than HTC and Sony, maybe later not now. You guys look at pictures not real thing. I heard a lot of noise about Oppo but they still haven't released any serious phones yet.

It's legen..wait for it...DARY!!! A complete masterpiece. Based on aesthetics at least. Chinese goods aren't exactly known for their quality product.

Bigger batter =/= better life. DNA > optimus G and N4 and S3 while having a smaller battery. But who knows, loving this device!!

The phone looks super cool. But it's name is stupid. First the brand name oppo, what is it oppa gangnam style something. Then "find", what kind of model name is that. Droid DNA has a ridiculously cool name.
