Oppo R9s Plus (S$779)

We love big phones and we cannot lie. An extra inch or so to the screen means more real estate for productivity and entertainment on your mobile. The R9s Plus has everything you love about the original, now with a 6in FHD display.

The screen isn’t the only thing that’s been upsized — the R9s Plus features the Snapdragon 653, 6GB of RAM and a 4000 mAh battery. Its camera has also been given a boost with a 1/2.8-inch IMX398 sensor and the addition of OIS+, so blurry images caused by shaky hands will become a thing of the past.
