To be added that Oppo R7 comes with a larger design and it is thicker and more polished compared with its predecessor. If the company had some serious problems with the camera app in the past, it seems that they solved this issue with the new R7 and now the camera app launches pretty quickly and smooth.
Customers can find the new Oppo R7 on the Chinese manufacturer's online store, being available at the price of 400 dollars. Many people will consider that this price is pretty expensive, having under consideration the fact that it is a device with some midrange specs.
Probably, they will go for some cheaper models, including the Xiaomi MI Note or One Plus 2. However, one thing is sure and this is that the new Oppo R7 looks pretty great, coming with a metal band around the sides where it also houses Micro-USB and jack ports.
Probably, users will not love the feeling of a metal edge digging into their palm, but despite that, the phone feels pretty comfortable in hand and it can be operated with only one hand.
Its 5-inch AMOLED display comes with a full-HD 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution, while the rear is an aluminum-magnesium alloy, giving the device a more luxurious feel.
Moreover, the 13-megapixel camera is situated at the top left. As we are used to, Oppo phones are coming with physical touch-sensitive menu keys and the new R7 is not an exception.
To be mentioned that the new device comes with 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor from Qualcomm, accompanied by 3GB or RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
These are not the most impressive specs, but how it was mentioned before, the new Oppo R7 is not a high-end phone. However, with this hardware, users will be able to run games and many other resource-intensive apps.
The battery found on the device is a 2,320mAh battery, which is a little small, but it has fast-charging technology. The Chinese manufacturer claims that users will get 75 percent battery life in approximately 30 minutes.
Moreover, the phone also comes with 4G support and runs the older KitKat version of Android. To be added that the device uses Oppo's Android-based Color OS.
Well, this means that users will not see pretty much from KitKat, because the company has customized their launcher, including gesture controls. Yes, owners can turn on the music by swiping two fingers downwards, while the screen is off or activate the camera by drawing an O.
