Reviews for the Oppo R9s

82% OPPO R9s review
Source: Android Authority English
The OPPO R9s has an excellent camera, offers impressive battery life, and features a nice display. However, the number of compromises here is staggering. Among derivative design and software, the R9s has sloppy software, offers below average performance, and has a bleak software support outlook. For Western users, the strange display coating, YouTube audio sync issue, and limited availability are even bigger issues to consider.

80% Australian Review: Oppo R9S - Iteration
Source: Cybershack English
Selling for AUD$598 with 64GB of storage, the OPPO R9s is a great deal, but it’s slightly difficult to recommend over the significantly cheaper F1s if you don’t need the extra bells and whistles, such as the better camera or the horsepower. Vanilla Android would push this phone over the edge and make it an easily recommendable device over its competitors, but as it stands you’ll have to weigh up whether you can deal with the slightly odd operating system. If the operating system isn’t a problem, then you’re getting one of the best value-for-money phones on the market.

Oppo R9s- Galaxy-like phone at half the price
Source: Bill Bennett English
Oppo’s R9s story is all about the price. We don’t know for sure but if it lands in New Zealand at NZ$750 it’ll be competitive. For that money you get most of what you’ll find in premium phones selling for twice the price.

OPPO R9S review - OPPO's best and clearest cameraphone yet
Source: Tech Nave English
Comparing it with the F1s, both phones share a lot of similarities and one might even opt for the F1s for being cheaper at RM1198, whereas the R9S stands at RM1798. That’s a RM600 difference and it’s easily understood why some customers won’t go for the R9S. However, the R9S is a lot better in terms of picture quality, and the performance is better with a Snapdragon 625 processor. Let’s not forget the awesome battery recharge technology as well. Despite these good points, we still wished OPPO could have been more creative in their design department for it. Seriously, guys.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 is a worthy contender, although it doesn’t have the same expandable storage, and the excellent OnePlus 3 is a smidge more expensive, but packs a more powerful Snapdragon 820 chip. In any case, both examples do not have the will to last as long as the R9s.

That said, Oppo's execution is the best, and this isn't just because of the six-string antenna design (though that's a big part of it). The R9s has the same screen size as the iPhone 7 Plus, but you wouldn't guess it - the Oppo is so much more compact and lighter. The fingerprint reader is faster than Apple's too.

OPPO R9s Hands On: A New Breed, Yet Feels Rather Familiar
Source: English
For the past one year, it is hard not to relate the word “selfie” with OPPO Malaysia’s smartphones given how the company has been working hard to establish its devices which include F1, F1 Plus, and F1s as the “Selfie Expert” devices. This year though, the company has somehow decided to focus on the power of rear camera with the arrival of R9s in our market.
Positive: Metal case; slim size; long battery life; fast charge.
