I've wanted this phone for the longest time.
So, last Friday I was expecting delivery of a Note 4. I had gotten a killer deal @ $599 flat I get an email, that morning, from oppostyle, telling me the phone is now available in the US at a savings of $250 off. I know he phone is now a little bit older, but it is the one I had really lusted after. I had watched pre-release and then afterwards, dismayed it hadn't been released for the US market. With the price drop the phone is very attractive.

Anyway, I ditched the Note 4 and the Spigen case I'd bought for it, at my full cost and have ordered the Oppo 7.
Can't wait to get it.

New prices $499 and $399.

Did you get any notification regarding shipping? I just ordered mine today. I have a note 4 and I can't wait any longer for a root. It's never going to happen on the AT&T Note 4

Yes, ordered it on the 12th, came in today, the 18th.

Well, things happened really quickly once they got moving. But very little notice in between.

I ordered Thursday, 3-12-2015, and I got a notice saying they'd received my payment and order, and that they'd post a tracking # once it was available.
But things kinda "went dark" til late Monday, or so. Then yesterday I get a text message, from DHL, saying delivery was anticipated for today.

************************************************** ************************************************** **

I'm setting it up for T-Mobile. Slapped the SIM from my Galaxy S3 and my 64gig mSDXC in there, put it in the case, put the battery in and voila.
The case that comes with it replaces the back cover ( put it away in a nice safe place you'll remember ). The phone walks you right through setup. Then just log into your Google account. Easy. Once I was setup, the phone let me know that there was an update available for the ColorOS and I went ahead and did that.

Oppo does a hell of a job packaging the phone. Very meticulous.
Going to be getting a different case than what comes with it, though. The flip style deal doesn't work real well for me, as the phone has to stay in my pants pockets. Still it is kind of cool. The installed screen protector is well fit, to the phone (kind of), but is of low quality. They include a different screen protector in it's own packaging and I'll be putting that on tomorrow. However, I'll be ordering a tempered glass one along with the different case, shortly.
Slim pickings for that, as they don't have the market saturation that iphones and Samsung devices do; so there is not as much monetary incentive to put a lot of 3rd party stuff out there. The choice of cases available is very limited.

Hope that helps.

Great, Thanks for all of that. I actually checked back on their website and its marked as shipped. even though I didn't get an email regarding that yet. I have also ordered a tempered glass from amazon. My main goal is to get my Wifi Tether going on this phone. As I couldn't do that on my Note 4 because of no root options and to use Titanium Backup again. Enjoy your phone bro and thanks again.
