Oppo Find 7: is the higher price worth the same performance?
Oppo Find 7 vs 7a benchmarks
1. Oppo Find 7 benchmarks
2. Oppo Find 7a benchmarks
The other benchmarks run show a similar bend towards the Find 7a. There were a few other tests run, and while most were fairly even, the numbers usually gave the edge to the Find 7a. On the Quadrant benchmark, the Find 71 scored a 22,234 compared to a 22,126 for the Find 7; the Vellamo HTML5 test was similarly close at 2,967 for the Find 7a and 2,988 for the Find 7; and, the Metal memory tests came out at 1,308 for the Find 7a and 1,371 for the Find 7. The biggest difference between the two was in the Antutu score, where the Find 7a scored an impressive 37,198 compared to 35,424 for the Find 7.
Is the Oppo Find 7 worth it?

QHD means battery and performance taxing gimmick with no noticeable and appreciable advantage. And this is the same thing like putting a full HD display on a phone running crap mediatek chipset.

Those crap mediatek chipsets nowadays are much better than your Galaxy S2's antique fossil chipset even if they both run at your GS2's crap resolution. Just saying. :)
7. alltechinside (Posts: 236; Member since: 21 Apr 2013)
That antique fossil chipset was the leading chipset at the time...
And Idk where you learned that those mediatek chipset run better?
If anything, I don't think any Galaxy S 2 devices ran Mediatek chips....
8. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3184; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Hehaheha whatever. I'm also an owner of nexus 7 2 now. Dont know why people heat over simple opinions. And in no way those crap mediatek chips are better than my exynos 4 gs2. It still performs top notch. While mediatek despite better(seeming) configuration still lag.

Actually, all but Mediatek's highest performance chips (MT6588 or higher) have worse GPUs than the Galaxy S2. So even at the same resolution, the Galaxy S2 will have much better graphics performance. All other Mediatek SoC from 2013 have either single or dual core Mali-400 GPUs or single core PowerVR SGX 544 GPUs, which are inferior to the Galaxy S2's quad core Mali-400.

Even I understand were your comming is coming from it's not 100% on mark.
The old Exynos chip had a Mali-400 MP4 clocked at 266 MHz as it was built in 45 nm.
Even Mediatek uses Mali-400 MP1 or MP2 in some products they are built in 28 nm and clocked at 500 MHz and offer a far better performance that Exynos one.
Moreover nowadays they use Mali-450 in most of the high ends, doubling the performance of the Exynos 4 Dual 45 nm.
In some GPUs they go even higher, in the top ones they use PowerVr Rogue 6 or Mali-T760.
So please don't exagerate that much.

Ah, I forgot that it was built on 45 nm, my bad. But I accounted for their high end chips in the first sentence, and excluded them from the comparison. Either way, the majority of their SoC produced last year used Mali-400 MP1/2 and PowerVR SGX 544. Just a handful of devices use the chips with Mali-450, and none as far as I know use the ones with the Rogue or Mali-T760.
34. TylerGrunter (Posts: 903; Member since: 16 Feb 2012)
Mali-T760 will come later this year in the MT6732 and the MT6752 (cortex A53, 64 bits)
Rogue is used in the MT6595, and already exysting product and their top of the line for the time being:

better than antique chipset? you'll blame mediatek for its stupid GPS.
2. Dude2014 (Posts: 135; Member since: 12 Feb 2014)
Oppo Find 7 didn't wow me anything just like GS5.
3. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8093; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Nope. I rather take a Find 7a over the 7.
18. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3984; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I think everyone would if they were well informed. You would think the lower performance, lower efficiency, and bad color reproduction would discourage Oppo from making the Find 7 with a QHD display. You get a higher pixel density, improved camera function, and a carbon fiber back with the Find 7, but all of those aren't very practical when compared to the Find 7a's advantages.

there must be a flaw in the 801 processor
9. fzacek (Posts: 1561; Member since: 26 Jan 2014)
No, it's just that the Find 7 has almost twice as many pixels to instruct on what to do.
10. alltechinside (Posts: 236; Member since: 21 Apr 2013)
Not exactly. The flaw to me is the display. It doesn't seen to produce any good color reproduction compared with the 1080p screen.
I don't expect the battery to be better on the 7 compared with the 7a because:
1. More pixel = more battery used
2. Higher clock speed = More battery used (for CPU & GPU)

Well think like this: you get an iSamsonyG 16GB for $600, and you get the iSamsonyG 32GB for $700, so what do you get for $100?
16GBs of extra storage.
However here you get the Oppo Find 7a for $500, and what do you get for $100?
16GB extra storage.
AND the faster SoC.
AND the 3GB RAM.
AND the QHD screen.
AND the larger battery.
Get it? You won't get as many goodies for $100 anywhere else.

Here in my country the difrrence is over 100
23. ArtSim98 (Posts: 2682; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
Ehm... The faster SOC doesn't matter because with 2.5k resolution it's still slower. And the 7a has a better screen other ways. Plus probably that extra battery won't help because of that resolution and CPU bump
26. _Bone_ (Posts: 2123; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
Ehm then buy the Xperia Z1 Compact, nice 720p screen for your performance.

As I said in other Oppo post.
They rate about on par with my Nexus 5.
Not enough to warrant a purchase.
I truly think they aimed for its market.
Good on them though.

@Dude 2014...GS2 has always been the cult phone and the game changer for Android.
Even today we have a very big developer base developing custom rom's for GS2.
16. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3184; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Very true dude. GS2 in terms of hardware and Android 4.0 in terms of software were vital and gamechanging landmarks for android. This fool wont understand this. This is the second time he cried for this reason. I'm using cyanogenmod 11 on my GS2, waiting for the stable release.

QHD is just marketing, at least for now; unfortunately people will always buy into the hype.

"Disconnect between specs and performance" - noticable with the Moto X and iPhone 5s.
Dual core processors, but great everyday usability.
Specs are nice and all, but what I've found they're mostly useful for (for the average customer I deal with on a daily basis) is saying this one has four cores, three gigs of RAM, and bigger numbers are better.
There are a few who understand more bigger numbers aren't better, but the average person has the dogma of "it's bigger".
tl;dr - people I deal with think bigger is better regardless of circumstances.
31. TylerGrunter (Posts: 903; Member since: 16 Feb 2012)
I can agree with the Moto X, but the iPhone 5S has the most powerful processor in a mobile device till the date.
Therefore it's a bad example for a disconnection of specs and performance, as it has both, the great specs and the peformance.

The question is flawed on many levels, for one, you could always ask if the LG/Sammy/Sony/HTC premium price is worthy when you can buy the Nexus, BUT!
You do get a faster SoC on the QHD7, you do get 50% more RAM, you do get twice as many pixels and you get 32GB out of the box - guess what, it usually costs $100 more than the 16GB phone price, and in Oppo's case, you're not only get twice the storage, but twice the store AND QHD, 3GB RAM, SD801 and a larger battery.
So yes, it is absolutely worth to hand out $100 for all that.

phones should be powered with QHD only from 2015.
25. Bishop_99 (Posts: 63; Member since: 04 Dec 2013)
Yes. The QHD display is easily worth the slightly higher price even if it slightly under performes when compared to the 1080p.
Having said that. I will wait until the Galaxy Note 4 comes out with the Snapdragon 805 cpu. Hopefully it comes with a QHD display, if not, I will be looking at other OEM's.

I'm on both sides, actually. I would want a good processor, but I'd much rather take a qHD (as in quarter HD) display for smoother performance
