Quick first look

When the whole world was going gaga over the ‘slim’ new iPhone 5, a company in China was quietly going about its business and thinking about releasing its own iPhone killer. Yes, it would be slim and light-weight. But, it would be on a larger 5-inch form factor. And the display resolution would be 1920x1080. That’s right, full HD on a 5-inch display. We’ve already seen how such smartphones can look and feel with our experience with the HTC Butterfly, so we can expect more of the same with the Oppo Find 5.

The Oppo Find 5

Although it is still not officially available in India, there are ways to get it imported here, if you really want it that bad. So why is the world taking notice of this rather unheard of smartphone? Besides the fact that they have now started launching their phones in UK and US, their incredible spec-sheet and sheer performance is mind-blowing. And the build quality of this is truly stunning. Move over Samsung Galaxy's plastics and even the iPhone and also the Nokia Lumia 920. The Oppo Find 5 outdoes them all. And some.

What makes it tick

The Oppo Find 5 is one of a series of Android phones we'll see this year to pack a 5" screen of 1080p resolution. Just like them, it has a powerful quad-core processor and a robust GPU - and neither is this a whim but a necessity (every frame on the screen has more than double the number of pixels of a 720p screen). Oppo has taken a page from the Sony playbook and equipped the Find 5 with a 13MP camera capable of HDR video. The camera also jumps on the HFR bandwagon with a 120fps mode (though only at VGA resolution). On the up side, Oppo has done a very good job of the design - the Find 5 looks like it belongs to a high-end smartphone line (we mean that in a good way) and the steel frame gives the phone a sturdy feel. It is fairly thin at 8.9mm and the curved back makes it feel thinner still. It's got proper battery backup too - 2,500mAh is more than what many direct rivals typically have.

The missing LTE is not quite the deal-breaker just yet, but it's a part of the future-proofing of a 2013 flagship. Non-expandable storage is another issue for a phone boasting a massive Full-HD screen and Dolby Mobile. If you get the 16GB version, you risk running short and quite quickly at that. Find 5 is certainly an ambitious project and on paper it's pretty well executed - there's skill and character aplenty.

Crisp bright display

Though it wasn't the first smartphone released in the world which had an astounding pixel density of 441ppi, it still was the first to announce that they are going to come up with such a display. Even though they were beat by HTC, Oppo has still done an exemplary job with the Full HD IPS LCD on the Find 5, which is protected by Gorilla Glass 2. From all accounts, it does seem like Oppo has created a winner which will blow the Super AMOLED’s and Retina Display’s out of the water.

Text rendering, multimedia and gaming is bound to look spectacular. In terms of detail, that is, the candy-colored icons may not be to everyone's taste. Not all apps however, have icons optimized for such high resolution yet (even most tablets don't have that many pixels), so some get up-scaled. That makes them look softer, but the pixel density is so high that they still look good, although clearly lacking the level of detail of the bespoke icons.

New interface

The Oppo Find 5 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with plenty of custom touches to it. Everything is rendered at 1080p resolution but thanks to Project Butter and the powerful Adreno 320 GPU, the running is extra smooth. Oppo has swapped out the lockscreen with its own. Actually there are two lockscreens out of box (each with an alternative view). The default one is the simple swipe-to-unlock kind and dedicates most of the screen real estate to the wallpaper. An optional charging status widget is all there is. Overall, the interface on the Oppo Find 5 is fast and smooth. It's fairly functional too - the customizable toggles in the notification area are nice and the homescreen can be tweaked to your liking too.

Early judgment

Oppo doesn't have a history in phones, but you'd never tell just by looking at the Find 5. It's a beautiful device with killer specs and, better still, it's priced lower than the competition.

We are really loving the idea of a phone with the 5-inch screen and the 1080p resolution (plus things like great viewing angles and that coveted laminated look) - that make for an amazing picture. However, we worry about the screen glass (it doesn't seem particularly tough) and the dead pixel is another issue. Anyway, beyond that the Oppo Find 5 seems to get most things right - the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset offers plenty of processing power (enough to handle the resolution), the 13MP camera is good if not great (plus movie HDR is a very rare feature), there's good battery backup (2,500mAh), NFC, Dolby Mobile and a recent enough version of Android.
