Boy the specs on this are impressive. If it's compatible with NZ frequency I could be tempted.

I am, sounds good! But I've just brought an LG Nexus 5 and that's more then enough pixels for me. 

I personally feel that manufacturers should take the app market into account when making their phones. Take apple for example, they are made so that an app has legacy support for the multiple versions, lessening the different versions an app dev would have to produce.

With android, yes apps generally work on multiple devices, the scaled apps look terrible with those jagged edges or blurry content. I have a 1080p and its fantastic for the native content, but its the games in particular that suffer :(

From the specs page:


International:
GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900MHz
WCDMA: 850/900/1900/2100MHz
FDD-LTE: Bands B1/3/7/20
TD-LTE: Band B40


Key bands to note are WCDMA 850/900/2100 & FDD-LTE band 3. The Find 7 & 7a will work just fine on all three NZ networks.

I don't personally find it very aesthetically pleasing, have concerns that 3,000 mAh will be insufficient, & have no interest in running Cyanogenmod on a 5.5" screen/little faith in Oppo's own software, but it's very nice to see specs being pushed above & beyond by a smaller manufacturer. That used to be HTC's game.
