Today in Beijing, Oppo unveiled its latest entry in the high-end smartphone fray, the Oppo Find 5.

The device was launched at a snazzy event that was quite impressive, which is telling for Oppo’s ambitions to become a recognized player in the bustling international mobile industry. Our Darcy LaCouvee attended the Oppo Find 5 launch event, and got up close and personal with the new full HD device.

The device’s most striking feature is the full HD LCD display that boasts an amazing 441ppi pixel density. That’s the same resolution and pixel density as the display of the HTC Droid DNA/J Butterfly/Butterfly.

All those pixels require a beefy processor, and the Oppo Find 5 does not disappoint. The quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip inside is clocked at 1.5GHz, and will likely dominate the benchmarks for the following months.

Another area where the Oppo Find 5 shines is the 13MP camera, which can capture videos at 120fps, for glorious slow-motion and blur-free action shots. That’s not all – the Find 5 is capable of HDR photo and video recording, which is a world first.

But how does the Find 5 feel in actual use? Check out our hands-on photo gallery for a better look at the Find 5.

Tell us, what do you make of the Find 5 and Oppo?

    Sorry Oppo find 5 it ain’t happening. My Galaxy Note 2 pimp slaps this device silly.

      • yarrellray

        Ha ha yes.

    • le_lutin

      You haven’t said why. I have a note 2 and nice and all as it is, I still think the Oppo is a definite contender. Looks like a nice compromise between the s3 and the note in terms of size. And if the camera is any good, I would definitely be tempted by this.

    • squiddy20

      Ummm it has the same pixel density and resolution as the Droid DNA, which has a 1080p screen compared to the 720p screen on your supposedly “pimp slapping” Note 2. Basically, the screen alone on this thing “pimp slaps” your pitiful Note 2 to hell and back. Moron.

      arent you the same guy nobody likes on androidandme?

  • lame.

    • le_lutin

      Ah right. Thanks.

    video speaks more than pictures. Video please

  • Ray

    These specs are all on paper. We have yet to see how it performs in real life. Maybe if I see a detailed side by side comparison video on the tube, I’ll consider it worth while.

    • The videos are all live. Sorry, the Internet in China is well, absolutely brutal. And forget about YouTube or Google services. Anyway, the device performed very solidly. We will be receiving one towards the end of December for review. I was impressed.

      • Ray

        Great thanks!

    • this is just a chinese droid DNA haha

  • Ivan Budiutama

    18K antutu? that’s sick

    • HellG

      bear in mind that this is the new version where even the Note 2 got similar score, all the scores has been boosted so this is around 13k really in the old version

      • Ivan Budiutama

        care to elaborate? I mean I tried my friend’s Note 2 antutu and it only score like 14k or something. I like the look of it, a bit similar to Sony’s Xperia line but d**n man, do you also notice the screen is so sharp and crisp? if the camera is live to its hype I think this one will be the beast. The only one question is: what about the availability for international market?

        • HellG

          Is it updated to the latest version? you can easily notice as it has newer icons and GUI,i’m in the same boat dude. i know anything mroe than 313 PPI wont matter and i know a 1080p screen will just drain the battery and lag the performance for no need, but damn having it in a phone will be so sweet, bragging rights to the iSheeps baby! :D

          • Ivan Budiutama

            I’ll check into it, probably no, since the updates always come late in my country, or she didn’t bother to check one. Anyway, making iSheep impressed is easy (at least it works for me most of the time). Just show them this: http://mycolorscreen.com/popular/

            and tell them that you can make the similar home screen on any android phone you have as long as you have the right ingredients, a little artistic feel and some cheap $3-$4 application. Well some of them went crazy and starting to ask about cheap or recommended Android devices (most are female), some just admit defeat. I call it “The Home Screen Art Tactic”.

          • HellG

            Yup if you can check my profile and check my latest replied i just had a long reply on one of these sheeps, god they are so ignorant

  • Benjammn

    Looks pretty damn nice so far. I will have to see more reviews but for around that price, this looks to be the one.

  • Hieu Le

    I would have no balls to throw a 500$ for china shjt stuff :) No matters how good or cheap it is ! Who gonna help me If my phone get fked :D Remember they base company is in China !

  • XOS

    Plus oppo does not have external sd with just 16GB internal so its a no deal atleast for me

  • Marijan

    Its ok but this guy do nothing then strating 3 apps on this review! :)

  • you’ll find unbranded Oppo (maizen) for half that price in shenzhen gray markets , in general great devices, so they are going global now ? yay ! super devices prices are going to drop seriously and we can start to see custom roms for these nifty little devices
