Oppo F5 Review

Like it or not, taller screens are apparently the biggest smartphone design trend of 2017. Not every company can pull off curved glass, and metal bodies are expensive, but apparently it doesn’t take that much effort to stretch out a display panel.

Oppo F5 design

Oppo has done exactly the same thing with its latest launch, the F5. The design even overshadows Oppo’s usual emphasis on its front cameras with the F-series, even though there’s also a whole new “AI-powered” selfie enhancement feature to brag about.        

The Oppo F5 is reasonably thin at 7.5mm, and weight is very manageable at 152g. The texture of the rear shell makes this phone easy to grip. You won’t be able to reach all corners of the screen with a single thumb, due to its size and proportions, but you can stretch without feeling as though the phone might fall from your hand any second. As far as phones with extra-large screens go, this one is fairly easy to use and handle.


the display itself is very good. It’s crisp and bright, with punchy colours and excellent viewing angles. The built-in speaker is impressive, delivering clear and rich audio in games and videos.The rear camera is pretty good, and we were happy with the shots we were able to take both in the daytime and at night.  Details seemed to come out well and colours popped in all our sample shots, although the autofocus did slip up on occasion.

Battery life is pretty good, even if you take a lot of photos, play games for a bit and watch some streaming video. Our HD video loop test ran for 11 hours, 24 minutes which is good considering the large screen. The main disappointment here was the lack of quick charging which we are now quite accustomed to. It took us an hour to get from 10 percent to 65 percent, which is adequate but not ideal.
