OPPO R5 - Thinnest Phone In The World

How thin is a smartphone supposed to be? How thin can it be? We can't imagine tha the answer in so much thinner than Oppo R5. Oppo R5 is the thinnest smartphone in the world (for now). 

The R5 is 4.5mm thick, not counting the bump-side of the camera. It's almost exactly the size of 5 credit cards stack on top of one another. We mean it. Really thin. Just fo the comparison, the iPhone 6 is 6.9mm thick, which is fully 40% thicker than the R5. The original Motorola Droid Razor, the one was supposed to be so thin that it could chop 'everything', was 7.1mm thick.

For the most part otherwise, the R5 looks if took an iPhone 5s and just stretch it out. It's made out of really nice metal and despite being the slimmest, it doesn't feel breakable at all. It has white stripe on the back, and the glass white penal on the front. Almost uncomfortably thin but impressively made.

The R5 is so perfectly Oppo. Oppo in one of the China's fast growing phone manufactures. Whe it launched the R5, it also debut the N3 which has 16 megapixels camera that swivel automatically. So you can take higher resolutions pictures for selfie.

Back to the R5, being this thin causes a few problems that the fact that literally no room for a headphone jacks. Opp made this phone to prove something not necessarily to be the perfect phone for everyone.


The R5 runs Android 4.4 along with whta Oppo calls Coloros OS 2.0. Basically it is bunch of customizations to Android. We have to be honest, some of them are pointless. There's a drawing menu that you can swiping up from the home button which lets you scribble a note to open apps. 

A lot of the changes though, are the ugly customizations of Android. And there's a theme's store that allows you to enjoy your individuality by theming your phone like a 'cute doodle' or 'teddy bear icon'. It's weird and we don't get it. We're sure girls gonna love it.

Beyond all that there's nothing much to say about the R5. It is somewhere between mid-range and hi-end with 5 inch and 1080p. 13 megapixels camera, Snapdragon processor and 2 GHz of RAM.
