July 14, 2014

Oppo Find 7

When talking about smartphones, one of the best performers that are currently fighting for proving their best talents is the Oppo Find 7, a brilliant device which now occupies the throne of Oppo’s smartphone flagships. It has been released not long ago, in May, and promises to deliver a stellar performance due to its top notch features and impressive specifications. Besides holding a powerful list of skills, the handset is also one of the most attractive devices out there, having an impeccable design which is hardly any news, as Oppo are well known for their stylish and eye-catching devices. No more chit-chat, follow the next review and find out exactly what it brings and if it’s suitable for your needs.

When unboxing the Oppo Find 7, you’ll come across its charger, a microUSB cable for making data transfers, a pair of headphones with in-ear buds and, of course, the smartphone itself. The A/C adapter isn’t your average re-charging device, but a larger, high current one designed for a faster charging, having an output of 4.5A.

The Oppo Find 7 stands at 152.6 x 75 x 9.2 mm and has a weight of 171 grams, which is more than reasonable for a device this size which also carries a 3,000 mAh battery. Although made from plastic, its design stands very far from looking cheap or anything like that, leaving quite the opposite impression. The body seems very solid and well put together, having a textured plastic back cover which offers a very good hand grip and keeps away fingerprints.

Its frontal part of the body is occupied by a gorgeous 5.5 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen which offers a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a pixel density of 534 ppi and is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 and an additional display cover which comes already applied and can be easily taken down.
The image quality is excellent, with punchy colors, great contrast and very wide viewing angles. The sunlight legibility, though, isn’t as good as expected, maybe because of the additional screen cover. Anyways, the device is perfectly usable under direct sunlight despite that.

When browsing through the Oppo Find 7, you’ll be welcomed by Oppo’s own interface which is known as the Color OS v1.2 and consists in a deeply customized Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The interface is extremely friendly and pleasant to explore and it features all the applications and services from Google, so you don’t have to worry about that. The user experience is great shouldn’t be a stranger to anyone who’s familiar with Android. It’s actually better, as the features and customizations really improve the overall feeling.
In terms of hardware, the Oppo Find 7 holds inside a Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 chipset, consisting in a quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory which can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 128 GB. The performance is exceptional, this fella over here is one of the snappiest smartphones you can find at the moment.

At the connectivity department, the Oppo Find 7 holds support for quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE, quad-band 3G (and penta-band for the US and Mexico models), quad-band LTE4, dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot and DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, microUSB 2.0 with On-The-Go support and NFC.

Surfing the web is a pleasure on the Find 7. It comes loaded with Google Chrome, which is the best browser if you ask me, having tons of features hidden behind a nice and simple interface which is very easy to use. The pages are loaded in no-time and look great on the phone’s spacious display.

For taking pictures, the Oppo Find 7 comes packed with a 13 megapixels camera with autofocus that takes photos with a maximum resolution of 4128 x 3096 pixels and features, among other stuff, a dual-LED flash for helping in low light conditions. The image quality is excellent, with beautiful and accurate colors, good contrast and a high amount of resolved detail. The camera application offer support for a great deal of stuff and the most interesting feature is the Super Zoom, a mode which processes ten photos and creates a 50MP one with the sharpest pixels from the aforementioned ones.
Shooting videos is also rewarding, as the Find 7 is able to produce some brilliant 4K videos and also 1080p ones at 30 fps.
There’s also a front-facing 5 MP camera on board for taking some really good “selfies”.

Some other important and useful offerings from the Find 7’s backpack are a GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS support, Google Maps for navigation, the Oppo MaxxAudio sound enhancement, some great media players, the Kingsoft office suite for viewing and editing document files, Google Now as your own personal assistant and much more.
