Lower priced Oppo Find 7a outscores Oppo Find 7 on benchmark graphics test
Despite what would seem to be an edge for the Oppo Find 7, on the Basemark benchmark test, the latter scored lower than the Find 7a. The Find 7 scored 59.61 compared to the 61.19 for the Find 7a. One theory is that the lower number of pixels needing to be powered up on the latter model works in its favor on Basemark, which tests graphics for gaming capabilities on smartphones.
Also, looking at a photo taken by the rear camera on each device, it would seem that the rear camera on the Oppo Find 7a offers brighter and better color reproduction than the one on the Find 7, which seems to produce a blue tint with its pictures. If this is a persistent problem with the camera, let's hope it can be corrected by a firmware update. After all, who wants to waste the otherwise drool-producing numbers associated with the Oppo Find 7.

I hope this year they really improved 1080p display tech with much more power efficient hardware. Same goes for 2.5k display on the tablets this year.

phones should not release this year with QHD. only from next year. this year they better bump more the battery capacity and bring better hardware that will be powerful enough to work good with QHD next year. would be interesting to see how G2 operate in battery life and benchmark considering it will have s805 and QHD.

Who told you that the g3 will have s805 ? I think rumors say that it'll have an lg octa core ship or an octa core mediatek one.

Seem like Chinese really know how to make beautiful design... only huge bezel in the botton is uninspiring... come on sammy hire chinese...
34. Neo_Huang (Posts: 376; Member since: 06 Dec 2013)
The bottom bezel is mostly for the captive buttons, I think.

The image quality is much better on 7a's 1080p display.

I think they look the same except the 7 has a warmer color temperature, the 7A has a colder colour temperature.
Color temperature is person preference, I prefer slightly warmer.
However, I do think that the 7 is looking a bit too red, especially around her hair and neck.
I don't think it really matter on Android phones because you can flash custom kernels and change the color temperature to whatever you prefer.
13. eli577 (Posts: 81; Member since: 29 Jun 2010)
It's actually quite the opposite. The one on the left has colder colour temperature and the right one has the warmer.
14. vincelongman (Posts: 1141; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)
Oh oops, sorry, I didn't read it properly
I though the one on the left was the 7a, and the one the right was the 7.
Yea, I agree the one on the left is colder, the one on the right is warmer and a bit too red.

Question on photo #1:
Is that color difference caused by the phones' cameras or the displays? The photos on both devices appear to be the exact same photo, so I don't think it's because of the cameras.

The cheap Chinese phone lost out to the cheaper Chinese phone variant in benchmarks and quality. I bet the company didn't anticipate that at all. Lol, it just goes to show you that QHD isn't necessarily better when the quality traits of the display aren't up to par.
21. Ashoaib (Posts: 1926; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)
Like apple? Cheap chinese manufacturing and sold as the most expensive
6. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3197; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
And i see many people complain that chinese phones are better and cheaper than Moto G. Pathetic human eyes and brains of some people
22. Ashoaib (Posts: 1926; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)
Yeah chinese phones are better thats why many people's beloved apple choose china to manufacture its products
24. papss (unregistered)
Mfg and design are two separate things my friend. Apple controls materials used, design, processors.. Everything other than the labor. Chinese mfg phones and china based companies are complete opposite
26. papss (unregistered)
Also I'm not happy you have me defending apple. :)
29. Ashoaib (Posts: 1926; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)
What about the guy above tauting chinese company by using "cheap chinese phone" words instead of appreciating their effort? is it a thing to feel happy? Like you I also dont feel happy how some people run their mouth without even ever using/seeing a phone physically... so I am using kr'apple as a reference to answer this type of "cheap phone" people...
35. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3197; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Hey no offense meant on anyone. Just stating that its not always low price and better specs that make chinese phones better than moto g. Snapdragon chipsets, custom rom and dev support, well known brand and latest OS puts moto g ahead of rest.

The Find 7 has marginally better specs than the 7a, but the 2k display is completely useless and a waste of battery power and performance. The 7a is overall a better phone because it has everything that it should have and nothing that it is completely unnecessary.
18. Amir1 (Posts: 262; Member since: 20 Aug 2013)
QHD is definitely NOT useless, but the hardware is not strong enough to handle it. QHD should appear from 2015.
28. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8240; Member since: 14 May 2012)
The QHD screen is colder and definitely inferior to he 1080p 7a. With that being said, 7a > 7.
37. Scott93274 (Posts: 879; Member since: 06 Aug 2013)
There really is no added benefit. Screens are clear at 720p, even more so at 1080p, though barely noticeable. Having a 5.5 screen with better resolution than nearly all consumer grade 50+ inch TV on the market just doesn’t make sense. It simply uses more power and processing to display the image. In return, the only benefit you get is bragging rights.
8. GreekGeek (Posts: 763; Member since: 22 Mar 2014)
If I wanted a QHD resolution device, it better be on an 8-inch plus tablet....not a phone...1080p stops there
9. techperson211 (Posts: 599; Member since: 27 Feb 2014)
Maybe just like the article said it just needed a firmware update. But in my opinion the 7a is way better in terms of battery life and pixel quality.
11. twens (Posts: 611; Member since: 25 Feb 2012)
Manufacturers are confusing us with numbers. S800 and s801 don't really have a performance difference. Secondly 400 ppi and over 500 ppi are pretty much the same thing. We need to wise up us consumers.

Find 7 is a fail. It disappointed me a lot
16. _Bone_ (Posts: 2125; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
Lol, how so? It's a spectacular device. Is it any surprise BTW that the lower-res screen delivers the higher framerate?
19. ArtSim98 (limited) (Posts: 2738; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
Well I was expecting more from the camera. Though I still haven't seen a full review of it. And it should come out of the box with Kit Kat already. It's almost April 2014. No it's no surprise that 1080p is faster, but that 2.5K display itself is disappointing.
32. Taters (Posts: 2918; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
It is called the Apple misleading effect. Apple has been hiding behind a less than 720p screen and safari for years. It is just that people are stupid enough to think Apple is hardcore for beating quad cores with 1080p and a really heavy PC oriented chrome when in reality, anyone with less than 720p resolution and an OS that has no true multitasking can pretty much use whatever chipset they want and still perform well on benchmarks.
So to answer your question. Yes, the majority of America is surprised that a lower res screen delivers a higher frame rate. Idiots have been championing Apple for years like their iPhones are pushing a 1080p screen and windows 8 pro. They just don't see that a direct performance comparison between a less than 720p device and no multi tasking vs a 1080p device with multitasking isn't a valid and direct comparison. Apple has been the masters of deception.
38. Scott93274 (Posts: 879; Member since: 06 Aug 2013)
Well, it's not really deceptive, their phones actually do perform faster than Android devices, but it's at the cost of a good display. Though even if they had a 1080p display, iOS 7.1 still takes up fewer resources than Kit-Kat so it would probably run smoother, but just barely. That being said, take into account the massive optimizations that Google put into Kit-Kat over Jellybean, and how much more resources iOS consumes over previous releases, it is clear to me that Android will soon be the most efficient mobile OS.

Price point on these will make or break their sales.
I bet they do all right.not a bad effort for a company so new an thrown into the ring with heavy weights like SS an LG.
No further behimd as the big dogs usually need to patch a couple times after a new release as well, so par for the course.
33. AfterShock (Posts: 2799; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
Benchmarks, looks an price seem to me they are aiming at the Nexus 5.
No wonder I kind of like them lol.
I was thinking they were a little more potent, but par at best is what it seems.
Can't beat what I use, pass thanks.

The color tones on the display of 7a is way better from what's shown here, but eagerly waiting for a full review to know things fully and also to check how well the battery performs with those specs. But still, I would not consider this phone with the G3 around the corner, it has to have a way better 2k display than the Oppo Find 7.
27. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3197; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
lets see what Samsung does with QHD AMOLED will be interesting.

What the f... is oppo? Never heard of it.
40. hurrycanger (Posts: 1092; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)
put the O's in the place of the P's and put the P's in the place of the O's.
Don't take this seriously though...
42. scsa852k (Posts: 290; Member since: 16 Oct 2012)
Could this be the reason why they're releasing 7a first?
