Oppo Find 7 will be more expensive than thought
So far, Oppo hasn't advertised the price of the more premium version of the phone, which will feature a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution screen, and possibly a 50MP camera. The manufacturer has confirmed the existence of this model and it will be unveiled March 19th along with the FHD variant.
In China, a high-end smartphone with a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen is priced at $100 to as much as $200 lower. Oppo could be shooting itself in the foot by asking for nearly $600 for this model of the Find 7. We do have to admit that there is some mystique involved, and the Find 7 has become a curiosity for smartphone fans. But many of them will never get a chance at seeing the phone in the flesh due to the lack of any partnership between the manufacturer and U.S. carriers. And Chinese smartphone buyers might not see the point of paying so much money for the Oppo Find 7 when other similar models are priced much cheaper.
FHD version of the Oppo Find 5 is priced at the equivalent of $570 USD

Premium built, desinged and engineered phone, with premium manufacturer. I'd not see premium price as a big problem on this phone.

Same here. I love my note 3, but I am looking forward to see what will the find 7 offer, and I wouldn't mind paying a bit more than the competition if it did indeed include all the rumored specs.

Yeah but Apple is suppose to buy Tesla Motor Co. I wonder if people will say they are copying? The Tesla electric car does look a lot better though than Samsungs.

I think it kinda suits Apple. And anyway Samsung couldn't afford to keep Samsung Motors afloat so they sold a big part of it to Renault, or so I heard. Anyway we'll see how an Apple car would look like :)

600 for the regular version which translates to like 800 for the better version. That's going to go over real well

Yeah, the OnePlus One will beat the crap out of it if this will be the official price.

$600 is better for those specs.. unlike S5 price tag!

Beside the 2gb of ram, what specs are you talking about?

Ignore him. He's trolling Samsung. That's what 95% of the users on this site do because they're insecure and are tired of seeing Samsung succeed year after year.

I'm trolling?! Go get a life, man! Everyone have an opinion and this is mine!

It's a premium device, I didn't expect less than $570, what were others expecting? Just because it's Chinese doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be super cheap.

Depends now a days. If you want to compete head to head to big smart phone company you should mind your pricing 1st

Umm. PA should know those $400 phones are powered by MediaTek processors. And Oppo is not some silly Chinese company who tries to clone and stuff.

I'm pretty sure it'll worth every penny!

This crap is more then an nexus 5 with exact same specs , only bigger screen (that could be a bad thing, and no sd card) so we get an nexus 5 with sd card , this is so lame... and nexus 5 i can buy from my country don't need to use warranty in case from other country and we pay more ... i expected more from oppo , don't rippo off ppl ... compare this with xiaomi mi3 that is WAY less with same specs and 64gb ram ... WHY WOULD ANYONE IN THE RIGHT MIND BUY Oppo find 7 and not Xiaomi MI3 or another Chinese phone (Gionee Elife e7 that got even better specs same 5.5 BUT ON SAME PRICE 3GB RAM , 32GB DRIVE AND 16MB Camera ) ? This is just my opinion , and i am disappointed , cuz i waited for this phone ... like WTF OPPO , put you feet back on the ground don't ignore your fans !

Really. People want high quality stuff at a cheap price. I don't hear anyone complaining about Apple's pricing. Coz its almost laughable buying a 4-inch dual core processor phone for nearly $1000 (yes, thats how much it costs in my country) when you can get a powerful 5 inch octa-core for just $600 or less and get a far better experience with it. Thats one reason I never liked Apple products. Anyway thats beside the point. Somebody works hard to try to bring quality products to the market and they get hate because of the price? Let those who can afford it buy it. If you're not happy with the price then do what I did, go for the best alternative

It's still cheaper than most of other flagships
