Oppo phones have come a long way, and the com­pany’s pro­duced a flag­ship unit that will tempt the crowd with cham­pagne tastes but a sparkling wine bud­get – and plenty more too.

In the past we’ve seen phones from the brand that pride them­selves on the strength of the cam­era, and while that’s not the fo­cus this time around it prob­a­bly should be. The 12MP front and rear lenses pro­duce In­sta-wor­thy self­ies and pin-sharp HDR shots re­spec­tively, with fan­tas­tic colour re­pro­duc­tion. Throw in 64GB of stor­age and there’s lots of space to store your snaps.

They look fan­tas­tic on the beau­ti­ful 6-inch screen. Oppo’s kept the res­o­lu­tion at 1,920 x 1080, re­duc­ing the stress on the 4,000mAh bat­tery which will hap­pily last a day with mod­er­ate us­age. Ex­am­ine the spec sheet on the smaller R9S and you’ll see you’re get­ting a faster pro­ces­sor and big­ger bat­tery, mak­ing the Plus the bet­ter out of the two.

Big it may be, but it’s beau­ti­fully bal­anced and thin, the metal­lic body giv­ing it a proper pre­mium feel. De­spite it run­ning An­droid 6.0, this is well worth a se­ri­ous look.
