Oppo Find 7 Review
Big and beautiful with good form factor
Long and beautiful, shines in your hand. Being 152.6 x 75 x 9.2 mm and 5.5 inches display smartphone you might feel Find 7 to be bigger initially but once you get used to, it does not matter. Big smartphone lover would love it. Made with high quality plastic material Oppo Find 7 looks solid and beautifully crafted. This phone has good form factor, user with small hands would not find difficult to hold and use it with single hand. On titanium-aluminium alloy frame body has been build using poly carbonate.
The smooth and beautiful texture pattern on the back not only gives you better grip but also gives you feeling of holding a premium smartphone. Weighing 171 grams could feel to be little heavy but better builds always come with some price.
Good and bright while using indoor, not so good for outdoor usage
Blended with high resolutions, Oppo Find 7 comes with 5.5” Quad HD screen display comprising of 2560 x 1440 resolution and 538 PPI (pixels per inch). That’s one of the highest in the market right now. Being on of the brightest display is actually the down part of it. While using indoor its average but while using outdoor you might find it difficult to use the phone and read the contents. Was packing too many pixels went wrong or is it the way it should work? I found display to be really good but at the price of being it too bright which at times is difficult to handle. Oppo used Gorilla Glass 3 to make display for it. It’s good and tough.
“Powerful yet simplistic”
Oppo Find 7 comes with its own ColorOS on top of Android. As of writing this article Find 7 comes with Android 4.3 and is yet to receive KitKat version of Android. ColorOS has some amazing features and is minimal on the phone. I am not fan of too many customisation over the stock Android which many of the smartphone manufacturers have done so far. Oppo has not done it! They have tried to keep OS simple yet feature packed so that you will not take days to understand it. Settings have been categorised and it’s easier for user to make changes he wants. For example many times I have found users struggling to make changes to their display or sound settings.
With few awesome widgets for weather, photos and music it’s a lot easier to handle this phone. Double tapping on locked phone state invokes the screen and you can easily unlock the phone, it actually makes easier on big phone to unlock the screen. ColorOS is packed with themes and effects, you might not get bored with your phone’s look.
As said I am not fan of customized UI’s but ColorOS is impressive, very impressive!
