Engadget Summary

Oppo may not be a familiar player in the smartphone market, but their Find 5 is a 5-inch 1080p Android device that offers a sleek design and beautiful display, though not without some caveats. phoneArena calls the screen "brilliant, with bright colors" and Android Police says the display offers "good colors, decent brightness, and of course, eye-melting sharpness." Of course, a larger screen equals a bigger phone, but PC Mag says "Oppo makes it feel manageable." It also uses more of the battery, but Android Police found that "generally, battery life was pretty good," and GSM Arena said the Find 5 "did pretty well when it comes to talking, but once that big screen comes on, the battery is put under a noticeably bigger strain." On the back of the Find 5 is a 13MP camera, which PC Mag calls a "solid camera" and GSM Arena says the resolution is "good, if unspectacular." The Find 5 is a good effort from Oppo that delivers a great screen and comfortable design, but it isn't being offered by any of the major carriers in the United States, so you'll have to import an unlocked one -- but with superior phones like the Galaxy S 4 being offered without a contract as well, you may want to stick with a proven quantity. But if you're looking to save a little money and need an unlocked device, the Oppo Find 5 is not a bad choice at all.
