Found 16th Jan 2016
New OPPO F1

Looks like a very nice and well built mid range phone.

Not so sure about the golden colour or the flip case, but the phone looks decent.

Pre-order gets you the flip cover free too.

Another phone to slot in with the Moto G, honor and huawei mid rangers

Nice to have other options :-)

Shame about 720p but nonetheless a good deal if you dont like GearBest, Banggood and all that crew

Ive never seen that ram combo (high) paired with that resolution (low). Unusual.

Yes, shame. But 720 on the Moto G looks nice and OPPO screens are usually very good.

Deffo one for the stylish mid range buyers - OPPO have a bit of a gold obsession at the moment

Yeah, bit odd. Battery life should be better with the lower res screen and, to be fair, 1280x720 on a 5 inch display is enough.

Good range of 2G/3G/4G bands and that all important memory card slot is there too.

£159 with the code Amazon are offering out today which gives £10 off a £50 spend. I've pre-ordered as a gift.

I would go as far as saying it's positively bizarre Personally I could never call a mobile with a 720p screen 'midrange'...Upper budget?

Quite a small battery though...I think there's better specced Chinese phones available for the money isn't there?

It's only a 5 inch phone, so 720p is fine.
Personally I'd prefer a higher-quality screen, more RAM and better battery life than extra pixels you'll barely notice.

looks good except for the battery!

£30 more for the one plus x is a better choice isn't?

my wifes one plus one is better than this look at those or the plus x like stated above

I would love an Oppai phone

Ok yes the onePlus X is only £30. But warranty issues and stupid invite system is murder, add to the fact your buying from hassle free amazon

This is ugly as hell. Why not just buy a Vodafone Smart 6 Ultra?

293.72 PPI...

More than high enough res. probably wouldn't notice difference between this and 1080p screen.

So your phone is faulty, and that's the reason why people should not buy SU6 and instead buy an Oppo F1? Is it because in your opinion Oppo phones never fail and their customer service is so good that it would be much easier to return it to them for repair than going into a Vodafone store?

Not sure how you inferred that from my comment.

Reading too much into that there. You asked for a reason not to buy a Smart 6 Ultra, and you were given one

I briefly had the R7 - it was very nicely put together but the usability wasn't that great - everything I tried to do felt a bit un-intuitive. The battery was poor, didn't have FM radio (yeah I know, I love BBC R3) and no finger print scanner, so I eventually returned it.

I hope this one's going to be better.
