  • Oppo R-8113 implemented Oppo UI, GSM Call ALWAYS ASK (mean user can choose before calling to call by using SIM 1 or SIM 2), TEXT (sms) default SIM, User only have option to send text by using default SIM, if user set SIM 1 as default SIM, before sending user only able to send TEXT by using SIM 1, to change the default SIM user must go to setting panel. Very annoying.
  • Zyrex ZA-985 Implementing Plain AOSP, with ALWAYS ASK Feature for GSM Calling, TEXT and Data Connection, this feature is very handy

Conclusion : No doubt consumer must Grab Zyrex ZA-985 rather than Oppo R-8113 at exactly similar price level.
