It’s not a pushover in any department, far from it, but it feels slightly underwhelming across the table, with a Full HD 5.9-inch panel, octa-core MediaTek MT6752 CPU, 2 gigs of RAM, and a 3,000 mAh cell.
Also, just 16 GB of internal storage space, and an Oppo proprietary OS based on the aging Android 4.
