OPPO MIRROR 5 comes with a midrange smartphone called Oppo Mirror 5 which is a dual sim smartphone with all the regular features. However, Oppo is not the best company in starters and mid-range phones so have to wait to see how this phone gets to be sold.
OPPO MIRROR 5 is crafted very beautifully and it looks perfect. The back panel is quite glossy just looks like a mirror. The mirror 5 feels comfortable in the hand. This time, the back panel holds a different design of shaded triangle which is very rare I say. But the device attracts lots of fingerprints on the front and also at the back which irritates you quite a bit. The sides are metal which provides protection. The phone looks very thin. It looks like a very premium phone at a very affordable price. The build quality of the device is good enough.
There is steel chrome running around the device which looks very beautiful. Front there is a camera and the speaker grill on the top panel of the mobile. At the back, there is a primary camera with LED flash. The charging slot at the top. The power and volume keys are conveniently located on the right and left sides which provide good tactile feedback. At the right side, you can see a sim card hybrid tray. At the back, the panel is non-removable. Available in white and blue colors. It weight around 160 grams and its dimensions are 143.4 x 71.2 x 7.7 mm.

The qHD display looks average with the given resolution, everything looks a little bit blurry and although the low resolution helps to achieve the longer battery life. It also doesn’t have any protection glass like gorilla glass or at least a screen protector on the box. Coming to the performance, it scored around 23604 on AnTuTu benchmark test. The geek benchmark score is 484(single core) and 1437(multi-core) which represents a very good processing package is supplemented.
The mirror 5 is able to play many games without issues. Despite the basic screen resolution, the frame droppings are rare. The American version is quite different which barely supports LTE. The rear speaker’s sound pretty good but the placement is bad which blocks whole sound when placed on a flat surface. Color OS imitates lot of stock android themes. Including the settings, multitasking, Menu launcher and lock screen. The animations are all very nice. It also offers the best customization option. But the multitasking menu would occasionally refuse to close the certain app. I have to keep swiping until the color OS realizes that I want to close this app. Which would be very frustrating? It is also provided with gesture mode. Comparing to the Meizu M2 note and Lenovo K3 note the Oppo is the top seller.
OPPO MIRROR 5 is a wonderful device available in the market. It has an excellent performance. The Oppo design is very good and it got the headphone jack. The performance is outrageous. It is available at a price tag of Rs 14, 900/-
