Oppo Find 5

I'm assuming many of you have heard of the Oppo Find 5, specs sound beyond impressive to me. Just wondering what some of your opinions are.

5 inch 1080p screen, 1.5Ghz Qualcomm quad-core chip with 2GB of RAM, 12 MP camera, and perhaps the most surprising, THINNER than the iPhone 5 coming in at a negligable 6.9 mm WOW! It also will ship with Android 4.1 Jellybean. I think the only category this phone is suffering is the battery, only 2500mAh, I think this may be an issue with a 1080p 5 inch screen, but I guess only time will tell.

Most chinese android phones for china market do not have playstore. So no matter what the specs are without a good ecosystem. It is worthless.

Wow, really? I didn't know that.
HTC is said to be releasing a very similar device to this in the near future also.

Kind of exciting if you ask me; packing in all those specs at that thickness is pretty cutting edge if you ask me.
Then again, specs aren't everything, and some Android devices are renowned for being slower in the long run. I think the main part of this article is that we'll soon be seeing many phones with a 1080p display. Necessary? Probably not. Am I complaining? Hell no! Lol.

This thing would be better if it had a 4.5" display at 720p. 1080p still seems nothing more than a massive battery drain.

True, especially considering the battery is only 2500mAh. I mean that's a pretty good sized battery, but when you're powering a 5 inch HD screen it's certainly not.
Personally, I thought the iPhone 5 should have been about 4.3" as opposed to just 4". Also, Oppo has smaller screen sizes, this is just their competition for the Note II, or the "Phablet" category that's exploded recently.

Is it just me or does 'Oppo Find 5' when said out loud sound a little like 'Apple iPhone 5'
