What the Critics Are Saying...


Business Insider

The Oppo R9s has the specs to compete with high-end phones but is sold at a mid-range price. But both the software and camera have deep flaws that may frustrate the heavy user.

- Tony Yoo, Business Insider
PC & Tech Authority

For the hardware you’re getting it’s great value, but the OS is the weak link here.

- Peter Gutierrez, PC & Tech Authority
PC Magazine

Solid performer that falls short slightly on some fronts. Still a decent high-spec mid-range entry.

- Din, PC Magazine
Android Authority

Although its camera is the best we've seen at this price point, the OPPO R9s has too many other issues for us to recommend it over competing options. If you're looking for a great camera, we suggest that you either compromise a bit with an alternative mid-range smartphone or pay more for a true flag...

So Has Oppo done more than sticking the letter "S" on last year's phone? In short, yes they have. Big improvements got grafted on where they add real utility. Given its good looks and great spec, there's a lot to like. The boundaries between flagship and mid-range are blurring.

Should impress you from the moment you unbox it

from Gizmodo

The Oppo R9s feels more expensive than it has any right to. It feels a lot -- a lot -- like an iPhone 7, both in its construction and design and the simplicity of its straightforward grid-based interface.

Apple face with an Android booty

Offering a flagship feel at half the price of its competitors, the Oppo R9s is one of the best mid-range handsets on the market, though don't expect stellar game performance.
