We already had the chance to take a look at the advanced version of this device, the Neo 5s, and it left us with a very good feeling. Especially considering that it belongs to the mid-range and its value for money is quite adjusted.
We started with the 4.5 “screen and IPS panel that although it does not reach high definition, it offers quality images with a good contrast and sharpness. The definition of 854 x 480 pixels will be short for many users but not for the users. that look for a simple and functional terminal, simple but nice design and that has a double Sim slot so you do not have to carry your mobile phone.
ColorOS: efficiency, speed and stability that improve Android
We leave behind the case to find a quad-core processor at 1.3 GHz. The MediaTeK MT6582 perfectly fulfills and allows us to run smoothly both the operating system and the most common social networking applications such as WhatsApp or Facebook. The version of the OS is 4.4.2 KitKat that we find somewhat old-fashioned but we must bear in mind that this smartphone reached the market in August 2015.
Like the rest of Oppo smartphones, the Neo 5 has ColorOS, the native customization layer of Oppo. It is based on Android and adds improvements and new functions to the environment to make it more friendly and practical. Only 1 GB of RAM will not make it fly but, for the range to which it belongs, it’s pretty good.
In our opinion, the main camera is the most valued of this device. With an 8 MP resolution sensor, f / 2.0 aperture, scene modes and video recording capability with HD 720p quality and 2 MP front camera. We will not record perfect images but it is a good ally to carry.
Superior to average autonomy with a battery of 2,000 mAh capacity and careful energy consumption. If you are interested in a higher-performance smartphone, review the analysis of the Oppo Neo 7. If you are looking for something more humble and economic within the brand, the Oppo Neo 3 will be your best ally.
