Sorry if this has been posted but I didnt see it.

I personally have never heard of Oppo? The camera thing seems like a neat little idea. Not sure I'd ever use it though.

The big thing is its running Cyanogen out of the box.

If it wasn't so damn big I'd definitely be interested--some true attempts at innovation. Choosing your UI, gesture navigation using the back of the device, and love the swivel camera--no need to use a terrible front facing camera's manufacturer's presently use.

And considering it's running CyanogenMod, I'd guess updates would come quickly.

I think it looks pretty ugly to be honest, quite tacky and cheap. The oppo Find was alright, but just hate the design of this,... Meh.

Really? there is nothing to it. Such a simple design (minus the swivel camera)

Love the super small bezel

I watched the Engadget hands on video and it looked vastly less impressive than the press shots to be honest.

That swivel camera is pretty cool and maximizes a better camera for all shots.

Not sure the actual quality of it compared to other cameras but like new ideas and giving it a go versus the same ol.

The hands on video by Engadget looks impressive to me.

Oppo is one of the big Android OEM's in China and is very popular at selling their own line of Blu-ray players.

I actually didnt hear about them until the Oppo Find 5.

The swivel camera is an idea borrowed from the likes of the Sony Bloggie (HD recorder) that I owned which came out about 3 years ago. But I concept I like in phones as it should eliminate crappier front-facing cameras and much easier and better photos for self-portraits. Swivel camera is another very simple but practical idea like dual-frontal speakers that eliminates some hassle.

If the screen wasn't so big I would definitely buy.
