The specially crafted designer rear is pure glory to the eyes especially when most of the Android devices are not that varying from each other in their looks. The device has been crafted using a sophisticated ultraviolet embossing technique for its regal finish.
With so much focus on the design and looks, Oppo seems to have got misguided somewhere along the path of specifications. Considering this price tag the specifications seem very disappointing. The Xiaomi Mi 4i , and the Asus Zenfone 2 among others showcase much better set of specifications, and are much more affordable as well.
