It looks fantastic and the specs are fantastic. Could be a winner!

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.

I like what oppo did with the design of the find5!

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 covet thee my queen....ye shall sit next to my Droid DNA ( aka Butterfly - eew) .....and earnestly wait for my princely Sony Odin :-)

Looks nice, looks like Xperia S without the transparent bar and squished into a thinner package,

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 C'MON PEOPLE!!! DON'T ENCOURAGE THIS NO EXPANDABLE MICRO SD SH!T!!!

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.

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.

31. lovefist unregistered

actually it feels bad and looks bad. but they still complete my checklist aside from build quality. sd card and removable battery.
