One thing that remains consistent with Oppo smartphones is their impeccable build quality. The Oppo R9s is a beautiful phone that seems to be finely crafted to perfection.

A 5.5-inches capacitive touchscreen has been provided in the phone that provides a screen resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. The display looks crisp, and the colour reproduction is fantastic. The viewing angles, as well as the sunlight legibility, are amazing too.
