Just a tip. Fold your dual screen backwards when putting in pockets. Works well when I applied tempered glass on both sides
(Facepalm)
Oh man, i seriously feel dumb now

Will do that the next time if i get the V50 again

After 24hrs of usage, my review as follows:

Cons
- heavy phone
- battery life not good enough for me(with 2nd screen attached)
- charging time too slow for me (thats because i used oppo and used to 30 mins fast charge)
- awkward way to hold the phone like a book and typing, but can fold the second screen backwards and hold it normally
- havent found a good use case for the second screen(but im sure it exists)

Pros
- fantastic camera and photo features
- phone is well built and feels premium
- eye catching and centre of attention
- came attached with screen protector already
- can be used in tent mode or like a mini laptop
- sound quality from the speakers are great
- super responsive phone, no lag in any apps so far,even with second screen.

And yes, it is possible to run 2 seperate instances of apps at the same time(as different user)

It took me a while to get used to the dual screen, kind of have to force myself to use and from there found use cases for it and integrated it into my daily job.

Battery life, try to disable some of the korean apps, especially the korean KT app store, it should improve a lot after a few days, even with dual screen

Wah the oppo really so fast?
I remember qualcomm put the V50 also support QC 4.0, maybe thats faster?
I couldn't really get a QC4.0 charger to try though.

Hi, I'm currently a v30 user and still loves it, compared to Samsung/Apple....

May I know if the v50 dual screen front display any notification or date/time?

Since it is a unit from Korea how do we update the firmware?

Thanks

Talking

Just made the purchase at Qoo10, total $795 excluding GST after applying the $100 discount.

Excited to try out the phone with the dual screen.

Actually you should have just added the two separately. The phone 700+ dual screen 138(same seller) then apply coupon before u check out. 738 before gst
