Oppo has constantly introduced refreshing smartphone designs such as the rotating camera of the N1 and ultra-thin R5. Now, the Oppo Mirror 5 introduces a diamond-inspired back cover design.

This makes the Oppo Mirror 5 look and feel elegant despite the mid-range price. Of course, there’s a set of decent specs to balance the aesthetics with performance.

True to its name, the Oppo Mirror 5’s back is essentially a mirror with what looks like a sparkling diamond. Of course, this is just a design technique but it’s well executed and the metallic frame enhances the effect.

On the front is a 5-inch screen although with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels only, not HD. On startup, a customized version of Android Lollipop called Color OS gives it a unique user interface.

It runs on a quad core Snapdragon 410 processor with 2GB of RAM. While this usually means it also has 4G LTE connectivity, Oppo Philippines has decided to stick with 3G only.
