PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If you're in the market for a smartphone, odds are you're looking at an Android phone. If you're looking at an Android phone, odds are you're looking at Samsung, and if you're exotic, you may be looking at a Nexus, HTC, LG, or maybe even Sony. Few of you will be considering Oppo. I, however, did.

But isn't the Nexus 4 $390 including shipping and all? This is $110 dollars more (I don't know if they have taxes, N4 does).

Yes, the N4 is marginally cheaper than the 16G version. The Oppo seems to have a full HD screen (N4 has WXGA), a 13MP camera (N4 has 8MP), 2500mA battery (N4 has 2100mA) neither have SD slots, or removable batteries. The N4 has an active developer community, while the Oppo's manufacturer also supports a good developer community.

I think that the Oppo is priced right, and should do well as long as people hear about it.

(disclaimer-I am a Nexus 4 user, and quite like it)

I agree it has better specs than the N4, which is more or less expected on a newer phone. My comments was because it is 28% more expensive than the N4 (again, I'm not considering shipping and taxes while I do consider them for the N4 price), and that is not "roughly the same price as a Nexus 4", at least not for me. That said, when time comes to change my N4, I would surely look into the Oppo 5 or it's successor.

Does the Oppo support the ROMs.

Or do the ROM developers support the Oppo? ..
