Anonymous, 29 Nov 2023Why spend a lot of money for a phone with less features.
Even in china, samsung sells more ... more"Desktop mode" Okay, that's one feature that should've existed.
"IPX8 rating" Unless you want to dip the phone underwater, an IPX4 rating (which this device has) would be enough for everyday spills.
"Optimized multitasking" That's one, but it's not like the Find N3 isn't. It's released for global market and therefore most likely has the same optimization level as z fold 5.
"Wireless charging" something that spoils the phone's battery faster.
"Also comfortable small stylus" Yes, the device does support the oppo pen for find n2/N3 and is sold separately like the z fold 5.
And explain how you're getting less features? You're getting a much better camera system in a body (excluding camera bump) that's slimmer and lighter. Plus a cover screen that's the aspect ratio of a normal phone. All for the same price or cheaper as fold 5 in most regions for base storage (16gb + 512gb for find N3 Vs 12 + 256gb for z fold 5)
[deleted post]Why spend a lot of money for a phone with less features.
Even in china, samsung sells more foldable phones than Oppo.
Now tell me how many chinese foldables sold in South Korea, then you can reply my comment.
Desktop mode, IPX8 rating, optimized multitasking, wireless charging, also comfortable small stylus are minimum standard for big screen foldable phone.
[deleted post]Sometimes it helps to have proper reading comprehension in a discussion. But since you clearly went ahead for direct personal attacks, it only shows that either you are lacking proper reading skills, or you simply have no value you can add to the discussion. 😆
And it's not "chinaphobic." The correct term is sinophobic. If you want to insult or denigrate others, at least use proper vocabularies. 😜

Jp, 28 Nov 2023How tf u gonna fit a stylus into a foldable
Also the Z5 it's so long and when folded it&... moreThe Z5 is not uncomfortable to hold. The only thing uncomfortable about the Z5 is typing on the front screen and that isn't even a feeling shared across the board which is likely why Samsung stuck to this design. It's not like they can't make a bigger fold. They choose not to.
If you're a 1+ fan or you just prefer the Open, that is fine but there is no need to push false narratives claiming the Z5 is uncomfortable. The Z4 isn't even uncomfortable. It's a 3mm difference and people have said the huge camera module on the Open takes some getting used to.
I know zero people who own/ would own a foldable.. and I'm pretty sure the peeps who do own them only buy them when they're heavily discounted.. not sure why tech companies still push them.. I mean look at the amount of comments since it's review.. next to none
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2023Oppo want to be recognized as premium phone maker. Actually you can get oppo phone a lot cheap... moreGood info. And you made a good point. So far people with Oppo foldables I’ve met (flip or fold) got it either given for free by Oppo (they’re influencers) or use inside deals like you said (ie getting it through an employee or internal sales from stores). That just proves my point, that their pricing is stupid if nobody’s buying it through the regular retail channel.

I can import a find x6 pro for about s23 money (in the uk). Can get a new find x5 pro for 2nd hand s21 ultra money (base config). Here Apple and samsung are disgustingly expensive and have insane prices for contracts (usually upfront payments, pretty low data plans for like £60+, my ex's iphone 13 base model cost her £50 a month which is just stupid).
And id buy this over the Z fold 5 because this is better lol, why would i pay anywhere from £100 to £500 more (again in the uk) for the fold 5? Thats just braindead behaviour.
What a beautifull phone.
Of course, blame the worse battery life than the Open on the extra bloatware of ColorOS that's eating the battery.

I have a Oneplus Open from 2 weeks.
It's much, much better than Samsung Fold 5. It's one of the best smartphone on the planet.
My last was Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, ROG Phone 2, always flagships.
With Oneplus Open (identical like Oppo N3) I have the best experience in smartphone world.
Since it's Oppo, it suffers the same thing as the rest of Oppo phones. Pricing. In some markets, the Z Fold 5 can be found cheaper than this. One begs the question why would a consumer pay more for a lesser brand than Samsung. I don't understand why Oppo pricing this so high, especially since it's their "first" in some markets. And their promos are pathetic.
As usual with BBK devices, best to just wait for a few months for the price to drop. At this point in time, one should simply get the cheaper tried and true Z Fold 5.
