Oppo used to be a mobile phone giant in its mainland China, but since it gained massive success and popularity in the country, it gained the attention of the worldwide mobile phone market.
The company was originally known to create MP3 and DVD players and since their venture to the mobile phone industry, they’ve been revered as one of the best in the business and they’re slowly gaining popularity in the west.
Today, we are going to talk about the Oppo R7. The Oppo R7 bridges the gap between midrange and high-end phones and I have to say that this phone is situated in between. The phone has some impressive specs, albeit, with minor quirks. We will talk all about the Oppo R7 in this article.
When I search for a mobile phone, the first thing I am going to look at is the build quality. Does it have what it takes to wow consumers? Does it have the specs to back up the status? These questions often linger my mind when I am searching for a mobile phone in the market, and I am pretty sure that most, if not all, people think of these questions as well.
The Oppo R7 has an amazing premium build quality It sports an all-metallic chassis and if you’re looking to buy the white model, you will be greeted with a nice silver back cover. It has a slight curvature that allows you to grip this phone with one hand without problems of slipping.
This mobile phone comes with a 5-inch AMOLED display with a pixel density of 445ppi and a maximum resolution of Full HD (1080P). I think there really isn’t something new to this trend as most midrange phone comes with, at least, a full HD resolution screen. Coupled with AMOLED technology, the colors should pop out making the display much more vibrant.
Under the hood, you can expect to have some pretty amazing specs. The Oppo R7 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor with 4 cores clocked at 1.5GHz and another 4 cores clocked at 1GHz. Furthermore, it also comes with the Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
With an octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM, expect applications to fly when using this phone. Benchmark scores are phenomenal and I have to say that even when I run multiple applications at a time, there is no noticeable lag at all.
Although the phone only comes with a 2320 MaH, non-removable battery, it does have the VOOC fast charging capability. In short, you can charge this phone for 10 minutes (from 0% battery power) and it will run for 30 minutes. This is especially useful for people who are always on the go without any power banks in hand.
The Oppo R7’s camera, at least when compared to other midrange phones, is a bit disappointing. Even though it comes with a 13-megapixel rear snapper, some images were a little bit grainy and lacking color reproduction.
Although the camera is a little bit disappointing, I am happy to say that the Oppo R7 comes with 4G LTE support. Do not forget to get the help of mobile phone signal boosters to ensure optimal signal performance at all times.
The Oppo R7 is a promising phone and I think that this midrange offering from the Chinese company will help propel it to stardom when it reaches the West.
