Oppo R819 360-degree spin

The Oppo R819 measures 136.5 x 68 x 7.3mm and weighs 110g. For comparison's sake, an HTC Desire 600 (with a smaller, 4.5" screen) measures 134.8 x 67 x 9.3mm and weighs 130g.

Design and handling

The Oppo R819 has a very standard Android phone design - a rounded rectangle with a silver strip running around its side, a gigantic classy screen and three capacitive keys on the front. Unlike the Find 5, which was an attractive phone, the R819 is pretty ordinary. Nothing incorrect with that, but you'll probably have people asking you what kind of Samsung or LG it is.

The first thing you notice when you pick up the Oppo R819 is how thin and light it is. It's just the correct size to fit in the hand comfortably too. However, the bezels around the 4.7" classy screen are fairly thick compared to most other phones - by no means huge, but could've definitely been smaller.

The back of the Oppo R819 is made of a glossy plastic with a subtle diamond pattern to it. It's not the best plastic we've seen, but we like it better than Samsung's favorite hyperglaze finish.

This back cover is actually removable, but there's not much you can do - the 2,000mAh battery is correct there, but it's attached with cables and there' no microSD card slot. At least you can easily change the back panel yourself if it gets damaged.

Display

The Oppo R819 has a 4.7" Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display of 720p resolution and 312ppi. It's sharp, as sharp as a flagship from last season, and sharper than most of the dual-SIM phones on offer.

The display has very fine viewing angles with only minor shifts in contrast at extreme tilt. Colors are vivid and the high contrast makes for fine image quality, better than some of the competitors that passed by recently (HTC Desire 600 dual sim, Samsung Galaxy S4 mini duos). It's very fine compared to midrange droids in general.

Best of all, the display is colorful - we kept it at under half brightness most of the time and that was quite enough. But you can push it to full brightness to assist the sunlight legibility. The display is on the reflective side, so visibility under direct sunlight suffers.
