Thinking of using the 2degrees interest free deal to get one. Does anyone have any experience with this model or other Oppo models? Or would I be the first person on GZ to get one, meaning I would be the literal "guinea pig". Any gotchas such as unremovable (without root) bloatware?

 

I am already a 2deg pay monthly customer, so no disadvantages to me for taking up their interest free offer, but I can pay cash if needed. As for pricing, does anywhere apart from 2deg and JB Hifi sell them? Although buying direct from 2deg would hopefully mean better CGA cover than buying from a parallel importer.

 

Current phone is a Sammy S4 mini, with a worn out battery and running slow due to software bloat. So almost anything will be an improvement.

Personally I wouldn't given that the OS that ships by default, colorOS, is still based on Android 5.1. In all due respects you're better off going for an Android device like a HTC 11, Galaxy S8 or a Pixel.

The R11 comes with coloros 3.1 which is apparently based on Android 7.1. Is this confusion based on an avoidance of number 4?

Then that makes the situation even worse because they haven't updated their website yet given that their colorOS is still advertising 3.0 as the latest version available. Doesn't make for a good experience when they can't get even the small things correct.
