Gionee has just lost its record of offering the slimmest ever smartphone on the planet. That record is now successfully held by the new Oppo R5 that comes in at just 4.85mm thickness, thus beating the 5.15mm-thick Elife S5.1 from Gionee.
There are a host of Chinese companies around at the moment in the market. And few of the names such as Gionee and Xiaomi have already turned out to be big household names with more users starting to own handsets from same.
Since everyone is talking about the specs of the new handset, you don't really need us to inform you about those. However, there are several reasons why the handset should be your next big acquisition. Here are the top 5 among them.
According to the company, each R5 unit features a reinforced industrial grade aluminum alloy micro-arc frame that undergoes touch of handcraftsmanship. This means you can expect only the best in craftsmanship in your hand.
As we said before, the Oppo R5 has successfully dethroned the Gionee Elife S5.1 as the slimmest in world. And you don't need to believe us when we tell you that everyone likes owning a slim handset.
The Oppo R5 also charges up sooner than you think. Apparently, a five minute charge gives you a two hour phone call. This means 30 minutes of charge will restore 75% of the R5's battery. And that's pretty impressive by any standard.
The Oppo R5 offers a 13-megapixel Sony Exmor IMX214 BSI sensor with f/2.0 support for the same. This means low light photography isn't a big deal with most of your images experiencing impressive clarity.
Oppo says that its phase-shifting material is made of metal, resin and other composite materials. So when heat is generated, the material begins to change. This material not only absorbs any heat; it also radically improves thermal efficiency.
