After the launch of Oppo Philippines at Valkyrie, i got a chance to review one of the Trio models, the R1x.

The R1x is the top of the line android smartphones in the market today.

At first, i thought there was a mistake when i received the package. The box was really light a small book. Once i got the unit out of the box, it was again, mistaken to be no battery. It was so light as if it was the dummy phone you can see on display in telco stores. Undoubtedly, it only weighs 130 grams. It’s much lighter than a hamburger or a sandwich.

Let’s talk about the packaging of the unit. It comes with a dual box, an outer and inner box. Inside the box you can see a long white charger, a white USB cable and a white headphones. It also comes with a translucent casing and also a small silver reset pin. It also comes with a user manual and a warranty card.

To start, you would need the reset pin to pop open the sim slot. Also, you would need a nano sim to work with. So in case you are still using the dual cut, standard or micro sim, you need to request your telco provider to replace it.

For the specs, it comes with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera and a 5-inch IPS LCD with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 megapixels. So it’s not small, nor large. Just the right size screen for you to view. It is 6.85 inches long, that would fit in your hand. It has a built-in Android KitKat OS version 4.4 and ColourOS UI.

The battery is a Lithium Ion 2,420mah. I just wonder how they fit it in this slim and very light smartphone!

Time to test the battery power and the camera. Watch out for my next article for this.
