Is Oppo the World’s most popular Android phone maker?

An online poll asks which Android phone maker do you support, interestingly China’s Oppo is currently in the lead!

If you roll back the clock 18 months there would be a very good chance you had never heard of Chinese electronics maker Oppo. Of course if you were following GizChina back then you will have seen the original Oppo Finder and Find 3, plus there is also the chance you had seen their Bluray players, but the truth is Oppo were far from being mainstream.

For Oppo’s international carrier it all started at the end of 2012 with the launch of the Oppo Find 5, the worlds first quad-core phone with 5-inch 1080 display. It was an great achievement for the relative new comer, and the Find 5 still manages to be one of the best phones of 2013 to this day.

    Breaking News – A North Korean poll found that state televised speeches by Lim-Jong-un were more popular than MTV and CNN. 🙂

    That’s far too little sample for this. At least it shows that android geeks acknowledge Oppo’s existence though, which is nothing short of amazing.

      True,but look at how that list arranged itself,and how low Samsung is,it is basically in order of build quality plus customer care.

    Agree with Anony. Although I have to say the Find 5 is the best piece of equipment I’ve ever owned.

    Perhaps helped that some time ago android authority was giving a free oppo among their readers. I don’t say that the poll is wrong or biased, just that android authority readers know that brand better.
    I like their designs except that I prefer the back capacitive button as the first button and not third (or first counting from the left).

    It’s really surprising that Oppo becomes so popular within 1 year from the unveiling of Find 5.
