So, a lot of us quite often say that it would be amazing for a phone to come pre-loaded with our Android flavor of choice. I've said it, you've said it, we've all said it.

Bring it on.  
In most of the smartphone-owning world, the name Oppo may be unfamiliar. That is likely to change (a little) after today, as the company becomes the first to announce a partnership with the newly [...]
