China’s All New Oppo R7
A company which not many have heard of, Oppo, has recently launched the all new Oppo R7 which is considered to be more of a phablet which has a mid-ranged price point. For those of you who don’t know, this China based company had previously released other phone models and just to name one of them, the R5 which was said to be one of the thinnest phones in the world with a thickness of only 4.85mm. The new Oppo R7 which we will be dissecting today is said to be much better in a thousand different ways and we are just about to find out why this is so.
One thing which I must say is that while most people tend to compare all the latest models to the previous one, you will be surprised to find out that its older sibling the R5 had a much slimmer body. The all new Oppo 7 has a 6.3mm this body but look on the bright side, it is now able to support the 3.5mm headphone jack which was missing in the R5, the thinnest phone ever.
The whole of the Oppo R7 is made from smooth metal which gives this phone a very expensive and a premium look altogether. Although this phone is made from smooth metal, the grip that you will get from this phone is simply amazing. If you were to stop and look around, almost every phone company out there is trying to make their phones as slim as possible and but don’t forget that there is a price for everything as far as beauty is concerned. For the most part of it, all these super slim phones in the market have a tendency to slip around the hand pretty easily which could make your whole experience of owning such a phone a very unhappy one. The Oppo R7 is not indestructible to begin with but still, it is not to be mistaken for a delicate phone either. While this phone has sacrificed a little bit more in its thickness and its size, it still looks great and it does not slip off your hands all that easy, that’s for sure.
The Oppo R7 has a 5.0 inch Full HD AMOLED display and to top it off, it comes with a pixel density of 445ppi covered with Gorilla Glass. When compared to other smartphones in the market, the Oppo R7 has a much better clarity because of its AMOLED panel. This enables your images to be displayed really well on your screen.
Every single smartphone manufacturer has got one goal on their mind and that is to increase their smartphones performance. For the Oppo R7, there has been a special focus not just on moving towards increasing its power but also to focus on software optimization at the same time. The Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 processor might not be one of the fastest processors out there but this device’s CPU actually has eight cored running at a single time which gives is more than enough power for your everyday tasks.
The Oppo R7 also features an Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The main purpose for this is to help with the Oppo R7’s Colour OS 2 software. This is of course good news for all gamers as they will not have to worry about having frame rate issues during their gaming sessions. Come to think of it, this phone is a breeze when it comes to an evaluation of its overall performance on a day to day basis.
VOOC Charging Technology
Oppo R7 comes with Oppo’s proprietary charging technology. Oppo claims that VOOC is able to charge from 0% to 75% in just 30 minutes
Oppo fans out there who have been up to date with all of their smartphone models will love this one more than the previous Oppo R5 as you can now plug in your 3.5mm headphone jack which was impossible previously due to the slimness of the previous model. This just goes to prove that a thicker phone does have a purpose and you can now enjoy your audio coming from the solid jack which is plugged into the phone. If you observe the phone well enough, you will notice a small dimple at the top and bottom of the phone and just in case you are wondering why this is so, it is made to lift the phone a little bit which helps to emit sounds better off the surface.
The camera on The Oppo R7 is something which should be taken into consideration when you when you decide whether or not you should own this phone. There are plenty of available modes such as the HRD, GIF Creation and not to mention the Ultra HD, all which can be easily accessed just by touching the icon at the corner of the app. An additional special mode, known to most of you as the Beautify mode can be found on this phone. To all your selfie lovers out there, you can now smile cheek to cheek with this phone as you will get to capture images with the 8MP front-facing shooter and a rear facing 13 megapixel shooter. Enough said about the camera on the Oppo R7 as its more than evident that if you are looking for a phone with a killer camera that comes together with special modes and functions, then this is pretty much it.
A Final Say
What you might like most about this phone is how it has been put together as a whole. Most phones in the market today focus only on one special feature leave it be the camera, the speed of the processor or solely just the design and its exterior beauty. That is why the Oppo R7 is different altogether. You might say that this is not the most powerful phone in terms of power and speed but take a closer look and you will realize that they have manufactured this piece of art here perfectly by giving it the balance it needs for a good overall performance. If you ever feel like getting the Oppo R7, then just go ahead and you won’t have any regrets as the price point on this one won’t dry your bank account and once you have the Oppo R7 is your hands, you will know that it was in fact worth every penny you paid.
