    The Oppo Find 5 is finally making its way to Europe! Oppo has now announced the comapny’s official European web store will open its virtual doors this Monday, May 27th.

    The star of the show will be the flagship Oppo Find 5, the company’s 1080p, quad-core handset. The device will arrive contract-free for €399 with free shipping (about $515), which is fairly close to the company’s U.S. launch price of $499.

    The big question is whether or not you should care. While the Oppo Find 5 was one of the first phones to feature a 1080p display, a lot has changed since the handset was first unveiled. Devices like the Sony Xperia Z, HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 all have stunning 1080p displays, alongside many other improvements and features not found with the Find 5.

    In a sea of other 1080p smartphones, Oppo Find 5 might not be as unique as it was when it was first announced, but it is still a very capable handset. The Find 5 is also a good deal for those that are looking for a reasonably affordable no-contract handset, as it is cheaper than the SIM free version of devices like the HTC One (£489.95) or the Samsung Galaxy S4 (£499.95).

    For those that need a refresher, the Oppo Find 5 is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and features 2GB of RAM. Other specs include 16GB storage, a 2,500 mAh battery, 1.9MP front cam and a 13MP back cam. The phone also comes standard with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

    What do you think, could you see yourself picking up an Oppo Find 5 as an alternative to bigger name flagships from companies like Sammy, Sony and HTC?

      That’s interesting. The device looks nice and its specs are close to the Nexus 4′s with a better screen and bigger battery. The price is also quite attractive. The Nexus 4 costs £279 and the Oppo Find 5 is 399€ ~ £329 which is much cheaper than the Htc One or Galaxy S4.

      I will probably buy a new phone this summer and I will definitely consider this one.

      Look at their oppoforums.com, it looks like their software is riddled with bugs, and battery life isn’t any good.

      “For those THAT need a refresher…” should be “For those WHO need a refresher.” Please know that this is correct grammar and you made this mistake in another place in your article and in other articles as well. When referring to people, you must use WHO, not THAT. Got it?

      its a great budget 1080p phone esp since oppo updates their andriod version monthly even more than google updating thier nexus. And its not just bug fixs but actual features. Look up project firefly

      I would definetly be interested in an Oppo Find 5. I’m currently carrying a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S, so it would beabif improvement. However, its price would almost make me regard options of “real” brands.
