    whats with this thinnest thing trend about mobile phones? so one accidentally sits or at least put a pressure on that kind of phone, will it just bend or even crack just like a biscuit? hahaha! for me as long as you can still hold it properly w/ your hand should be fine,its not like youll hold a phone as thick as a hollow block or a brick anyways…. just my 2 cents anyway! peace!

    finally oppo knows how to put a reasonable price tag on their device. I’ll wait for the reviews on this one, quite an interesting phone. Just a question thou, why is that the phone on the first photo differs with the rest?

    Get the nexus5 instead! a year older but better spec’d and cheaper.

    • Justin says:

      Agree! Or spend a few thousand more and get the upcoming Nexus 6. The mid-tier processor of the R5 is a major turn-off.
