MWC 2013: Oppo Find 5 Full HD Smartphone On Show

Android 4.1 handset with 5" Full HD screen

Chinese manufacturer Oppo was one of the first phone-makers to unveil a 5" Full HD Android smartphone with the Find 5. This handset has been on sale for a few weeks now in China, and is currently on show in Europe at the Mobile World Congress. In all, the Find 5 looks like a nice surprise. Eager customers may be interested to know that a limited number of handsets will be going on sale internationally from 27 February.

Although relatively unknown just three months ago, Oppo has managed to get itself out there on the smartphone scene by presenting the Find 5. Note that this Chinese phone-maker is no way related to the "Oppo" brand of Blu-ray players and Hi-Fi systems.

The Find 5 has a Full HD IPS screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels. The display uses One Glass Solution technology (OGS), which makes the IPS panel and its touchscreen layer into a slimmer package.

This handset runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core SoC clocked at 1.5 GHz and has 2 GB of RAM. It comes with either 16 GB or 32 GB of memory, to which an extra 32 GB can be added via the microSD card slot.

The Find 5 comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a home-grown Oppo interface over the top. The handset's finish is excellent. In fact, it's a really nice phone to handle and the screen is very bright.

The interface seems pleasant enough to use and—more importantly—the OS runs smoothly. The Find 5 is a slim smartphone that uses a 2500 mAh battery to help keep its 5" Full HD screen powered up.
