WATCH: Oppo R5 smashing a walnut

Mobile phones

Fair play to Oppo, which isn’t the most well known phone maker – if you want to get noticed it turns out that the best way to do is to post a video of your product smashing some stuff.

To show off how tough the R5 is, the company used it to smash a watermelon, a walnet, and in a loaded metaphor, an apple too. Oh, and they ran over it with a car for good measure too.

The phone itself is pretty powerful too – it has a 5.2″ full HD display, 2GB of RAM and both a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 and quad-core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor inside. There’s a 13MP camera on the rear, and 5MP on the front too. Plus apparently it can smash fruit.
