What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Size

Not only is the Oppo R5 one of the thinnest smartphones in the world, it's also one of the first to come with an octa-core, 64-bit, Qualcomm-made SoC on board, ready to enter the Android Lollipop era with full force (and we are assuming that Oppo will update its newest devices to the new OS, sooner or later).

Indeed, the R5 looks and feels like a well-built, premium handset; despite its thickness, it is absolutely sturdy, with no bends and creaks.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
Oppo R5 was announced at the end of October and was quickly proclaimed the thinnest smartphone in the world - an impressively elegant handset, obviously meant to please users who place aesthetics as a top factor when picking a smartphone.

Screen

A buttery-smooth performance and a crisp screen make browsing a pleasure.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
Oppo has said that it's used materials that dissipate heat faster and “radically improve thermal efficiency.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
The phone's HDR function is a letdown – sure, it does light up all the dark corners in an image, but the whole picture ends up looking like it has its contrast set to low and brightness to high, while also being covered in grain.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)

Thickness

Having a thin phone is great and all, but a lot of users would agree that the compromise in battery size makes for a bad trade-off.

The thin profile takes its toll.

As every slim handset to come out these days, this one also has a protruding camera on the back, though, it is housed in a nicely looking, rectangular bulge, so as long as one is used to this "feature" on modern smartphones, it will be a non-issue.

Camera

The display's color temperature measures at 8011 K, quite a ways off from the reference value of 6,500 K. That, combined with an apparently skewed color reproduction, results in the picture looking cold, with a bluish/greenish tint visible throughout.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
To round off the package, Oppo equipped the R5 with a 64-bit Snapdragon 615, 2 GB of RAM, and a generous 13 MP / 5 MP camera sensor combo.

When the screen is off, the user has a choice to draw a circle, which will open the camera app, or draw a V-shape, which starts up the flashlight.

Battery

In this case, we are on the fence, as the R5's 2,000 mAh juicer managed to last 5 hours and 8 minutes in our battery life test – quite an impressive feat, since the juicebox has to power a 5.2”, 1080p display, but still – lacking way behind other premium Android handsets.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
Well, if that's the case, Oppo may have just hit the nail on the head – the device is indeed thinner than the iPhone and has an equally poor battery life, but for its going price – we can't say that it's a better choice than the iOS-bearing flagship.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
So, the Oppo R5 charges up from 0% to 75% in about 30 minutes, while going to the full 100% will take around 73 minutes, as the last 10% of battery take quite a while to fill up.
