Oppo R9s Plus Details
We are very impressed by the design of the R9. It’s very thin (less than 7mm) and the matte black frame is incredibly elegant with its Silver Oppo logo inlay. The front Gorilla Glass 5 extends from top to bottom and there is virtually no telescope. A tactile “button” under the screen works as one of the fastest fingerprint readers we’ve seen (Oppo tells us it’s made of zirconium and has a hydrophobic coating to work better when it’s wet). Everything is fine in the look department. The 5.5-inch AMOLED display has Full HD resolution and although the colors are not as strong as some competitors, it is still very clear and dynamic. On the right is the power button and the volume knob is on the left. On the bottom there is a normal USB port (not the latest USB-C) plus a proper headphone jack. The SIM card slot can accommodate a second SIM card or micro SD card.
It does not come with a silicone case (like F1), but we recommend buying one: tiny dimensions mean it should not be too big after pulling.
Oppo has finally started to use Android 6 with its highly modified Color OS 3 operating system. While that can throw annoying warnings, we’re actually big fans of it. Make regular performance adjustments to clean the store and keep things in order. There’s also a file-locking feature that lets you back up important work files, apps, and nudie photos so you can safely share your smartphone with your friends / family / kids without knowing what they do not see what they should not.
You can take several steps to improve phone calls, take screenshots, and lock the screen (many are off by default if you prefer). Here are some useful tips if you want to set the time, and others, like the advanced screenshot that lets you scroll through a long conversation or a web page, are unique and possibly very useful. The integrated user manual is well designed and interesting to navigate. O-Cloud allows you to back up contacts (meh) and SMS (possibly very useful). Night mode (warming the screen color to avoid eyestrain in the dark) is an important feature, but you must manually enable / disable it.
Again so far so good, but we are not quite convinced of the performance of the phone. Although not a high-end phone, some high-power applications feel a little slow (like the camera, see below). When you play, you may feel a little frustrated: Pokemon Go may be a little late and often loses the ability to find without rebooting. But for the occasional daily use we did not have too many problems.
The 3.010 mAh battery is not huge, but it is remarkable for such a slim phone. If we use a Google Pixel XL, we would say that the performance is similar: you will have trouble getting a full day of moderate use. A quick charger helps, but we expected Battery OS’s battery management to increase performance: F1 handled three full days with the same software and a similarly sized battery. It may be that the phone always solves what our usage profile is before optimizing things, we’ll let you know when things change.
