OPPO Find X5 - Thinking about Buying One

I've had a look at the specs. Not too bad compared to the competitors new phones. Price fair at $1799 for the Pro. I see now Harvey's are giving away a $200 gift card. Release date is 18th April, 2022.

Pro's

Android 12, ColorOS 12.1
The Pro battery is pretty decent at 5000 mAh.
Fast charging 80W, 50% in 12 min. 100% charged in 47 minutes
Dual SIM with a nano sim and eSIM, dual stand buy.
50MP camera.
32MP Panorama selfie camera.
6.7" screen- 1 billion colours display
4K video recording

Cons
No card slot.
No 3.5mm jack- well can't remember the last time I use headphones plugged in.

    It seems an extravagant price for a phone.
    I have a cheaper oppo and am happy with the quality and performance.

    • I've got an Oppo A53s. I think its excellent for under $300

        While I understand lots of people buy expensive phones, I get cheaper ones and refresh more often.
        Less of an issue as battery life declines or the screen gets a few scratches, compared to a costly phone you need to use for years to get your money worth.

        And I'd suggest a top line oppo won't have the resale value at 2 years that an apple or even Samsung might have.

      Absolute dog shit OS, it's slow, drains battery, lots of Engrish.

      Is this recent experience? Mine has been basically the opposite with a Reno 10x Zoom, fast with good battery life, no engrish that I have seen. And I prefer ColorOS to the Samsung or Huawei OS.

      Completely opposite experience here.

      Just purchased our second lot only because "Upgradeitis" got to us.

      Our A52 batteries are still giving us 3 days of use and I don't understand the reference to "Engrish" 'cos I have never seen any on our Oppos.

  • I had an OPPO A91, an excellent phone at a good price. Easy to use and worked well.

    After 2 years the battery showed signs of dying so I sold it and purchased a 5G Dual sim RealMe 7 (originally part of OPPO).

    I buy cheaper phones, they do what I want, that way I can easily afford to update and I can still sell my old phone at a reasonable price.

    I had an Oppo Find X3 Pro - for me personally hands down best Android I ever used (it beat Samsung EASY) - however I have since switched to the iPhone 13 Pro, and while I think Oppo is amazing, I dont know if I would pay Apple prices for it

    I got an Oppo A91 and it's been great. I crammed the camera glass enclosure and it is a little slow in certain situations (swapping apps with maps running, connected to Android Auto which I do a lot for work). Personally I don't think the x5 pro will be worth the cost, especially after getting such a good experience with the a91 which was $200. Is the x5 pro with 8x price hike? I think the x3 pro on sale is the way to go. Still a great phone and not much difference between it and the x5 spec wise. $700 would be solid for x3 pro

  • Well it looks like the Find X3 Neo is dropping down on clearance. I've got a product care claim credit at HN. Getting the Neo. It's got 12GB RAM. Had a look at the demo and it's pretty fast. Officeworks has it on clearance for $747.00. HN said they would do a deal on the price

  • $1500 for an Oppo??!
