I really don't undestand why you guys don't make a smartphone with removable battery and external storage slot.

Some people don't need them but some people do! I have a Note2 with 64gb microSD card in it.
I like OPPO for its being close to AOSP, for being CyanogenMod friendly.
I'm really looking forward to buy an OPPO but lack of external storage prevents me.

Come on guys! You are our light at the end of the tunnel.

    Because having microSD card and removable battery might compromise your design? And, not having microSD card slot and removable battery might be a dealbreaker for SOME people, but most people (the mainstream) are not bothered in the slightest. I mean, look at iPhone. I'd think Oppo will try to appeal to the masses (although strangely they try to target the "geeks" as well).

    Apple users are ready to buy even trash cans if they see an apple picture on them.

    If OPPO comes up with a smartphone/phablet that has removable battery and external slot, I'm sure that many samsung users will move on to OPPO.

    Apple users = mainstream = money.If they can retain their design language (e.g. the Find 5's sleek design) and provide removable battery and external SD card then maybe yes. If they because of the external SD card and removable battery they have to use plastic back cover etc then I'm not so sure.. I said this because I'm one of the users who bought the Find 5 because of its design, and although I'd love external SD card and removable battery, I would not want to trade the design with those two features.

    And how is that a good thing? speaking of Microsd cards, they are slower than on–board memory, and i find my 32Gb to be enough on my find 5,and the removable battery makes the phone much more prone to shortcircuit (May water leak in the back cover)

    Simple solution.. If you need a removable battery and external storage than buy a different phone. OPPO didn't make a phone with removable battery and storage, deal with it lol. Guess what, they are not the only ones. In fact, more and more OEMS are doing this. And the truth is, more and more users are coming around. The unibody design is a beautiful thing. With cloud storage available nowadays, there's less need for extra storage in devices and I haven't needed to replace a battery in any of my phones...granted I upgrade quite frequently, but still, unless you want extra batteries to swap out then there's no need for a removable battery.

    This topic was created for OPPO not for you. I did not ask you to come here and criticize my requirements. Are we clear on that?
    Secondly pull your head out of your country and see the people in other countries.
    May be one day after long years, you can even realize that Data plans in some countries are not as cheap as in your country.
    In fact, I know many people, even some are from the US, keep buying Samsung just because of external storage.

    To be honest, I am okay with non removable battery as long as its above 3000 mah. I don't like the idea of replacing the battery with a bigger battery, compromises design after you put heavy battery and difficult to find accessories like reliable cases for the phone and its a waste after you have changed your phone. Instead I prefer external battery. Universal, doesn't matter if you change your phone and can be charged anywhere (mobile).

    As far as Sd card goes, I prefer sd card slot. Not a deal breaker, but they should give an option. When sony can make brilliantly designed and waterproof phone along with sd card slot, I expect nothing less from Oppo, because I know they can do it. Its cheap, I normally don't use sd card but only when am travelling and need to watch some shows and movies. Otherwise 16 gb is enough for my needs. Good that N1 supports OTG.

    Oh really? If you don't want a response from the community than don't post openly in a public thread...duh! Are we clear on that?And if you didn't notice, the Find 5 is an international device.. works in other places than the the US, so something tells me this phone wasn't made for US markets only... Take that into consideration. Obviously us Americans aren't the only ones interested in a unibody design without extra storage. That's all.. I wasn't trying to be rude to you just realistic. I admit I shouldn't have said deal with it.. you have to anyway. No need to start in on personal attacks. I'm sure it was thought of and the decision was made. No point in crying over spilled milk.

    Sinan Cetinkaya, if that reply was meant for Corey M, it was uncalled for. But let's be mature adults and not get into heated discussion.
