My S5 goes from 1-80% in about an hour but this is impressive. Kudos to OPPO for this kind of tech.

Very impressive that not only is the Find 7's battery slightly larger capacity, but it charges nearly twice as fast as your device. Hope this makes it to all smartphones soon enough.

Same with my Note 3 with the Samsung charger. Charges to 100% in about 2 hours. That's fine by me compared to my old HTC DNA which took about 5-6 hours to charge to full.

This kind of advertising will help companies like Oppo with better specs but lower prices become popular.
Kudos Oppo!

Wow very impressive, wish my phone would charge that fast. The lockscreen at the end of the ad looked just like WP, the date and time in the same place.

I'm mad I did not continue to wait for this and instead took the plunge for a Note 3...

bad charger coupled with a bad battery. If he is using a charger that is like .5a or .75a it will charge very slow. A big culprit of the $2 chargers.

If you charge it with 1.5a or 2.5a chargers it will take 1.5-2hrs. Mine on a 2.25a tablet charger takes just one hour.

You know that in the end its not the actual speed of charging, right ?
Yeah it really recharges fast 20-100% in 1h -> check in YouTube, but I think this ad is little bit exaggerated.

Got my find 7 last week. The display is so addictive. Damn good it is. The only problem im facing is the horrible battery drain issue. Other than that it is one heck of a device.
