It's quite surprising that 1 company has the ability to have 2 brands of a similar size and also possess a brand with a cult like following. Most people have never even heard of Oppo/Vivo in the West.

Vivo are one of the biggest innovators in the Smartphone space, they should be bigger over here - they should launch (Ala xiaomi /oppo) in the UK.

I think in the new few years a lot of these Chinese brands will move into western markets China doesn't make only cheap tat anymore while all of these big western brands have stopped taking risk these Chinese brands are been very innovative and they are cheap
Nice spec. Any option to buy with more memory?

I seem to remember going out of my way to order an Oppo DVD player over a decade ago as they were capable of playing XVID/DIVX files. None of the big brands we were familiar with over here had even thought about it yet!

From memory, it came from a German company, via Estonia?

I did try asking if Richer Sounds had anything similar before I ordered it and they had no idea what I was on about.

Changed days!

Was the same with the first portable CD player I ordered that played MP3. Had to get that from Japan! USB MP3 sticks were available at the time, but it was £50 for a 128MB one or something stupid like that ...

Unfortunately not cheap with Oppo based on UK pricing

I'm a big fan of Xiaomi but I welcome good competition as it keeps prices low, does anyone know how good Vivo are with security updates etc...?

I always think BBK are the most innovative tech company out there. They seem to have most of the best tech first! In recent years they had one of the first pop up cameras, in display fingerprint sensors, and under display cameras in phones.

I remember Oppo made home electronics like DVD players, brand was totally under the radar then. Nice to see it grow.

I wish people would get the difference between storage and memory …I wish people would get the difference between storage and memory


I didn't feel the need to specify volatile or non-volatile memory as I'd prefer the option with more of both.

ROM = Read Only Memory and RAM = Random Access Memory.

This is 64GB ROM and 6GB RAM. So I see nothing incorrect here as aren't they both different types of memory?

No problem, keep an eye on the EU Realme site for stock. Better option.

You said it yourself, "They are different types of memory". However ROM is something else again. It is not supposed to overwritten in routine use, RAM and storage memory are.

The user didn't specify the type of memory. So I don't think they are incorrect, even if ROM is not meant to be overwritten routinely it is still a type of memory.

"even if ROM is not meant to be overwritten routinely it is still a type of memory". I think you are getting yourself confused. Neither the 6GB or the 64GB mentioned in the specs of this phone are ROM.

"The user didn't specify the type of memory" again, this is my point. By just calling it memory (and without a GB figure to go by) you cannot tell which type is being referred to, the working (RAM) memory or the solid state (NVRAM) memory.

The 64GB is referred to as ROM. I am not getting confused about that.

The user wanted increased specifications of both RAM and ROM. Regardless of that, the main question was whether a higher configuration was available at all (as there could be many variants such as 8GB RAM/64GB ROM, 6GB RAM/128GB ROM, etc.).

Saying memory is intentionally vague.
jamie1530/10/2019 23:34

No it isn't. Only someone who did not know what they were talking about would call it ROM. You even gave the definition yourself, "ROM = Read Only Memory". Does that sound like somewhere you could store your MP3s (note the first two words of the acronym).

"the main question was whether a higher configuration was available" which is irrelevant to my comment, which was about the confusing terminology used.
Shame theres no sd card slot or this would have been a winner.
