OPPO are continuing to roll out new phones and the latest is the Mirror 5. There’s a lot of attention being paid to the external design of this phone, with the unique back made from a sparkling diamond-like mirrored surface, it’s available in a ivory white or midnight blue. It is a little strange to still see the inclusion of hardware soft buttons, instead of the on-screen controls of most Androids.
The phone’s exterior houses a 5” display (960×540 pixels) which is low by today’s standards. There’s a 64-bit Snapdragon quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, and a 2420mAh battery. On the back is a 8 megapixel camera with a f/2.2 aperture lens and 1.4 um pixels size. The front packs a 5 megapixel camera to handle those selfies you know you love to take.
One of the best parts of the Oppo devices is their camera software, with one of the longest list of modest and formats available. Beautify 3.0 includes Double Exposure and Various Filters, as well as modes like Time-lapse, Ultra-HD, Slow Shutter, Panorama, HDR, Super GIF, Audio Photo, Colorful Night, Expert Mode and of course the #nofilter, Normal Mode.
As for the software, the Mirror 5 runs their latest ColorOS 2.1 a customised version of Android 5.1, something most manufactures still haven’t been able to ship.
Designed with quality while keeping it simple, we accentuate the core contents and prioritize information accordingly. A clearly layered

In terms of price and availability, we don’t have Australian details yet, but let’s hope this one arrives down under. The Oppo flagship, the Find 7 is actually in so high demand, they’re out of stock right now.
