The Oppo R5 has a stainless steel body and along with its extreme slimness this makes the handset look very sleek and stylish. At the launch for India Oppo CEO Tom Lu said, “We used cutting edge manufacturing techniques to create a phone that fits perfectly into the users’ hands, and that feels incredible. The frame has been forged nine times and then finished by hand to give a perfect sheen and feel. It has a quality that is not available anywhere else in the industry.”
