Oppo Find 7 review: Everything you need to know
written by: AnshuRanjan
In the Android market Oppo isn’t a household name, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with enough juices. The Chinese company’s earlier devices packed high end feature and fair amount of innovation. This time Oppo is back again with its flagship phone Find 7. The impeccable hardware, outstanding design and fair amount of innovation makes Oppo 7 stand out in the crowd.
The 5.5 inch full HD IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3 and 403ppi looks stunning. The display works fine even with few drops of water or with gloves. We tried using wet fingers screen works as intended. Oppo has also placed LED notification system, which looks quite pleasing. You can also configure this LED to turn on when charging or when battery juice is lower than 10%.
Oppo Find 7 comes with a 2800 mAh battery with removable cover. Under the hood you can expand storage capacity up to 128 GB with additional 32GB on-board memory. The flagship phone ships with Snapdragon 801 SoC. This 2.5 GHz quad core processor with 3 GB of RAM can run all your apps without any glitch.
The phone comes with an amazing 13 MP rear camera with Sony Exmor IMX214 sensor and a 5 MP front camera. Camera works pretty fine in dark and clicks some gorgeous photos, thanks to Sony sensor. The front camera also delivers pretty good images with its BIS sensor. The images clicked are quite good and are better than the one from most of the smartphones in the segment.
Other than gorgeous videos, phone is also capable to capturing 4K video. This could be the main reason for you to buy this phone.
The Oppo Find 7 runs a highly customised version of Android Jelly Bean 4.3 called ColorOS. This was a little disappointing as nearly all the flagship phones ships with Android 4.4 Kit Kat and Oppo Find 7. However, ColorOS is really a great visual experience from a regular Android. It doesn’t seem heavy and operated without a lag. Find 7 hosts the entire Google app along with tons of its own apps.
The latest offering shows that this Chinese manufacture needs more attention as a serious Android hardware manufacturer. The device is as par with any flagship phone in the segment with utmost quality and performance. The only disappointing thing about the phone is that it is still being shipped with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean when Android Kit Kat is in the market for over 6 months. Being one of the cheapest smartphone in the segment will surely help to garner some sale margins but still it will have to face tough competition from established smartphone manufacturers.
