I was allowed for TechnikNews Pay a visit to OPPO Germany in Düsseldorf. You can find out what I experienced there in this article.

I was invited by Peter Manderfeld (press spokesman at OPPO Germany). Of course, I noticed this and now report on my visit to OPPO Germany.

Questions to Peter Manderfeld

Of course, I also brought a few questions with me, which were answered right away. Of course I don't want to withhold this.

Where do you see disadvantages at OPPO? What could be better?

Answer from Peter Manderfeld:

A big challenge for us is brand awareness, we're still new in Germany, but we're working on it. In July, for example, our first TV spot ran on German television. We were also visible as a tennis partner at the French Open and Wimbledon. In addition, we used the time during the lockdown to strengthen and optimize our retail presence. All this gives us attention in a broad target group and helps to increase brand awareness. Overall, we found that OPPO is much better known and more relevant than it was half a year ago. For example, while we were mainly present in the trade press in 2020, this year in prominent mass media about ours Proproducts and our company reports.

Why are your devices priced the way they are? What's the strategy behind it?

Answer from Peter Manderfeld:

Our goal is to gradually become one of the most popular premium brands in Germany. Of course, there are currently many newcomers trying to gain a foothold here. It is important to understand that the competitors sometimes have a different focus. With our brand we stand for a premiumproproduct that is characterized by the use of high-quality materials, very good workmanship and an unusual design. Anyone who picks up our smartphones will feel it immediately. We offer mature technologies for this. This means that we do not always aim to be the first on the market, but to be the best. We are addressing a different group of customers than companies that focus on the best price-performance ratio.

Where do you see the advantages of OPPO-Proproducts compared to the competition?

Answer from Peter Manderfeld:

We bet on ours Products based on high-tech, special materials that are first-class processed and a premium design. We are all about offering our customers the best user experience. This is exactly what we want to convince the customers with, not just with a mere data sheet. OPPO developed and produes his Products themselves. Actually lies the Pro70% production in our own factories. That's unusual in our industry. This not only makes us independent, it also gives us the opportunity to Proproductionproprocess almost completely and thus to control the quality.

What about in the future with larger storage variants?

Answer from Peter Manderfeld:

Our own market research has shown that only a small proportion of users require more than 200 GB and most users use less than 80 GB. A storage capacity of 256 GB is therefore completely sufficient for many users.

My impressions from the OPPO Germany headquarters

Since I now had the chance to visit OPPO's Germany headquarters, I couldn't help myself and of course took a few photos. Here is a gallery with my impressions. Incidentally, OPPO has already taken up 2 floors. The West Europe team sits on one floor and the Germany team on the other. They now employ around 60 people in total.

too bad Oppo has no trade-in programs to upgrade from older Oppo phones. Just bought a find x2 pro last year and would like to upgrade to an x5 pro. but w/oa trade in, new Oppo phones are too expensive. may have to return to Samsung who has a generous trade-in programs that I have used before.

I was looking for a watch and ordered an Oppo LTE.
A piece of jewelery and the price is okay.
Unfortunately, all the major dealers I asked about whether they were branded or not were overwhelmed. All !!!!! were annoyed by my stupid question and claim that something like this (we live in 2022) no longer exists.
I would have never thought of it either!!!
Too bad for the customers and for Oppo
