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.

The Oppo Mirror 5 is equipped with an 8MP camera at the back and 5MP selfie snapper on the front. The latter has built-in portrait enhancing image processor called Beautify 3.0.
Photos, videos and other files can be stored in its 16GB internal storage or add up to 128GB more with a microSD card. Meanwhile, a 2420mAh Lithium-Polymer battery powers everything.
Its official price in the Philippines is ₱9,990.00 and is now be available in Oppo outlets nationwide.
