So you want to look stand out from the rest? Go and get yourself the Oppo Mirror 5S and you will immediately gain that status.
We had earlier reviewed the Oppo Mirror 5S, and we have to say that it looks gorgeously beautiful. The device that was launched today has all the makings of a great smartphone and is a strong contender at a price point that won’t break the bank ($269). It will be sold throughout Dick Smith stores nationwide, as well as online at www.oppomobile.com.au.
Michael Tran, Marketing Director at OPPO Mobile Australia, said: “Our goal is to offer Aussies a range of devices that match their lifestyle and budget. The Mirror 5s maintains the high-quality craftsmanship that OPPO lives by, but does so at a price-point that’s pleasing on the wallet.” This is very true indeed.
You really can’t help but admire the beauty of the Mirror 5S, thanks to its sleek exterior and inner strength. You will come to appreciate how it looks so good from any angle. Feast your eyes on its unique back exterior that was designed with individual cut-glass sections and that have different reflective tendencies. All this is crafted using a sophisticated ultraviolet embossing technique that provides a stunning look in a stylish, white finish.
The beauty is not only on the outside, but all the way to the inside. Beneath the attractive surface is an innovative internal structure reinforced with a bi-metallic frame with cross beams that gives it the exceptional strength and durability. That’s something we don’t normally see in other smartphones.
Featuring a 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that displays 720 x 1280 pixels or ~294 ppi pixel density, the images on the screen are going to look great as well. By having the IPS screen tech, it provides for a much wider viewing angle that can easily be shared with a friend or two.
Having such an impressive look, it may be hard to match on the inside. Equipped with a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 chipset, Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53, Adreno 306 and 2GB RAM; it somehow falls short of the expectation. However, it is still good enough for most daily tasks.
The Mirror 5S uses an 8 Megapixel primary camera that comes with f/2.2 aperture lens and 1.4 um pixels size. With greater photo-sensitivity for low light conditions and a faster exposure time that minimizes blurring. Combined with the newly enhanced Pure Image 2.0+ engine; you can look forward to consistently superior images, whether it is day or night.
Then it has the 5 Megapixel secondary camera that comes with Beautify 3.0 technology, which eliminates the need for image editing. You can now focus on capturing beautiful and natural selfies to share with friends and family. It also comes equipped with multiple modes, matching gender, age, and so much more. You will have so much fun exploring what the camera can do. With the simple press of a button, the smartphone will automatically take six snaps, then create and combine them into a 24-megapixel photo, perfect for high-quality prints. Double Exposure and Time-lapse also serve as creative features from OPPO, with other modes including Super GIF, Panorama, Colorful Night Shot, plus many more.
You can expect the Mirror 5S to be faster, steadier and better as it has fast activation speed, smooth and steady sliding when ColorOS 2.1 meets Android 5.1 together. The new OS provides a faster, steadier, and overall enhanced user experience. Besides the new UI and extended themes available, ColorOS also offers fast activation speeds, smooth and steady sliding, as well as more memory and power, in which key application scenes have been optimized. Thanks to self-optimization and the more reliable Android 5.1, the stability of ColorOS 2.1 has been greatly improved.
There’s 16GB of internal storage that can also be further upgraded with the available microSD slot up to a maximum of 128GB.
Battery-wise, the Mirror 5S comes equipped with a non-removable Li-Po 2420 mAh battery. It should be just nice to be able to power up the device for at least a day.
Also do take note that it has 4G LTE connectivity and dual-sim feature which is a nice addition.
A great body doesn’t necessarily mean great performance. But as a start, you will definitely make heads turn with the Oppo Mirror 5S. However, it is still a good performer that will satisfy your daily needs easily.
The Oppo Mirror 5S is available today through most Dick Smith stores and www.oppomobile.com.au. It will only be available in white color, though.
