Now OPPO has announced a new mobile phone name OPPO MIRROR 5 which is basically the successor of its previous version. This time what OPPO got for you, we are now discussing in the details given below:


The shine is all over shattered on this mobile phone, the whole area of its design is always shine and it makes you feel love with your mobile phone. The back is very beautiful and it is non removable, back cover always shine as this mobile phone main quality is that it shines all the time.

The bi-metallic frame is a nice touch as well, and gives this device a very elegant look. The only drawback In this case is that this plastic is very much smooth and it easily catches your finger prints on the back as well as on the front plus it also catches dust very easily so it is quite difficult to keep your Oppo Mirror 5 always clean.

On the right side of this device, we found a power button as well as the volume locker button. All the buttons are very much smooth and best to press. The micro USB slot is installed on the bottom and the headphone jack is installed on the top of this mobile phone. Speakers can be found on the bottom adjacent to the USB slot. Even though the battery is not user-replaceable, the back cover is removable, giving you access to the dual SIM card slots and the micro SD card slot. On the display top we found the LED notification light and below the display there are three capacitive back, home, and recent apps keys.

The thickness of this mobile phone is 7.7 mm and it is weighing 160 grams, the Mirror 5 feels solid in hand and its 5 inches display is quite easily handy and the grip of this mobile phone is also very strong.

The Mirror 5 has a 5 inches HD screen quality having a resolution of 960 x 540 and a pixel density of 220 ppi. A good pixel and screen size for a mid-range mobile phone just like the Mirror 5. The quality of the display is nice and we can say that it is better than average. Everything look blurry and not as sharp as we have seen in the other mobile phones.

Overall the display is not very much good as Samsung is using a Gorilla glass cover which resistance any damage to the screen but OPPO doesn’t have anything like Samsung but Yeah Oppo has included a screen protector in the box of this mobile phone.


Mirror 5 has a quad core 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at the 1.2 GHz and the CPU is 306 with a 2 GB of RAM memory. The overall performance is good for this phone but yeah some apps require more time to prcess because the processor is somehow low than other phones.


The day to day performance is quite good. The multi-tasking is very much smooth and it doesn’t have any kind of Bug with the low resolution display meaning that you won’t be seeing a lot of frame drops.


The Mirror 5 has a build in 16 GB of storage but it also has an expandable micro SD card slot up to 128 GB. So the storage has doesn’t any kind of problem with this device. It also include the 4G LTE technology.

The Oppo mirror 5 has an 8 mega pixels rear camera and 5 mega pixels front facing camera good for 1080p video recording and selfies are also good with this camera. The rear camera is very good and it takes good snaps from it on the other hand the camera app is very much inspired from the Apple iOS and it has also includes many camera and shots mode. There isn’t a lot by way of manual control however, but a nice addition is a slider next to focus point on the viewfinder that lets you adjust the exposure quickly if needed.

The Mirror 5 has its own color OS 2.1 which is based on the android lollipop 5.1.1 which is the latest at the time in the android market. This OS is somehow related to the android one because all the animations, colors and graphics are same as android.

The interesting thing in Color OS 2.1 is that there is no App drawer in this OS just like MIUI Operating system, so it means that you have to rely on the folders to access any of the application.  Perhaps the best part of the latest Color OS iteration is the various gestures it has baked in, including double tap to wake, drawing preset letters to directly open certain applications, and screen-on gestures like pinch to open the camera app, a swipe with two fingers to adjust the volume, and a swipe with three fingers to take a screenshot. This OS also contains one handed mode but as far as the screen size is quite accessible that is 5 inches so we don’t think so that their will a need of this one handed mode.

Overall, when we look up this mobile device we found this very interesting and eye catching because of its shining surface plus the price is very low targeting the mid rang people but the specs and features are high and this device can give a tough time to other mobile phones in the market. the only drawback feature in this handset we found is the lower screen quality, we were expected that if OPPO is making beautiful and shining surface then it will also make a better screen with that but the screen quality is disappointing but overall the device is good having some useful and brilliant features like the Remote control feature and good quality camera.
