Here are some Oppo find 5 camera samples
OPPO Find 5 runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1, which is slightly old now. But I really didn’t find myself missing any of the features of Android 4.2 which i have on other smarphone. OPPO changed Android design and designed their own widgets. I wish they did not do it. I personally find the launcher ugly and the widgets border on being bizarre with their distorted bubble appearance. However, other users have said that they like it, and fans of the MIUI will actually find it quite familiar.
The OPPO has NFC in and comes with two NFC tags. These work well and are a nice touch.
What is NFC ?
Near Field Communication capability allows you to use any NFC Smart Tag to quickly set profiles. It automatically change your phone’s settings and send information.
The OPPO Find 5 is an excellent smartphone which offers many good features. It can be certainly compared with big name flagship phones. However, the price is 399 Euros (about £342) one should be comparing this handset to the likes of the iPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy SIII, Nexus 4. The camera is maybe not the best solution in low light and the launcher is a matter of taste. But I have to say that the price, screen and build quality make Find 5 an exceptional phone.
