Oppo remain one of the leaders in thin smartphone design and have just updated their 4.85mm think R5 to become the R5S with higher specs.
The original Oppo R5 launched last with with a super slim body and standard specs that included 2GB RAM and 16GB memory. Since then the smartphone market has moved along and now we all expect a little more in the memory department, so here is the newly updated Oppo R5S.
Cosmetically the R5S hasn’t changed, and even on the inside most of the hardware such as the 5.2-inch AMOLED HD display, Snapdragon 615, 13 mega-pixel camera and 2000mAh battery remain the same but now there is 3GB RAM plus 32GB of memory.
A Snapdragon 615 really doesn’t fill us with much confidence after our experience with the Xiaomi Mi4i and the Vivo X5 Pro, and what is more of a concern is the fact the phone still runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat!
Look back a few years and Oppo were the leaders in open source and developer support, but these days their phones seem to fester on old Android versions.
