Review: OPPO R9

oppo r9

Never have I ever had more people perplexed by what phone I’ve been using these past couple of weeks. OPPO R9 is one of the manufacturer’s boldest moves ever, and it’s bound to leave more than a few on the fence as to how they feel about it.

It’s a brilliant example of quality design and finish for not that much dough, but as is often the norm with heavily skinned Android smartphones, the software remains an area of improvement.

With all that said, let’s find out whether OPPO’s latest mid-range flagship stands up to its upmarket look.


HTC 10 unveiled with OIS cameras, QuickCharge 3.0 and less bloatware

At long last, HTC’s latest entrant to the flagship market has been announced, and in dropping the ‘One’ branding, the HTC 10 marks a step on the right path the Taiwanese manufacturer has needed for some time.

Review: OPPO R7s

The line separating what is a manageable form factor for most, and clear phablet territory for those after greater screen real estate, could not be better exemplified than in the original two mid-range offerings from OPPO, the R7 and R7 Plus; but with the OPPO R7s there’s a happy medium that might just be for the better.

We’ve spent time with the OPPO R7 and its far bigger sibling, the R7 Plus and now the newest entrant to OPPO’s R7 series, the R7s offers a 5.5-inch panel for those torn between a relatively compact 5-inch display or going all out with a 6-inch phablet. As we found though, it’s with time that OPPO has been able to build upon a ...
