First display comparison between the QHD Oppo Find 7, and the 1080p 7a appears, along with chipset benchmarks
We already got a thorough video preview of the latest Chinese warrior - Oppo Find 7 - as well as the first 50 MP camera samples from its intriguing camera modes. Now, we strike with the first performance benchmarks, and even more interesting - with the first direct comparison of the image presentation differences between the Quad HD, and the 1080p display versions of the phone.

As you can see from the benchmark performances below, the 2.5 GHz Oppo Find 7 has slightly lower scores overall, compared to the 2.3 GHz Find 7a, likely stemming from the fact that it has to push a QHD 1440x2560 pixels display, rather than a 1080p one. The difference in most benchmarks is not significant, though, so the Find 7 is still towards the top performers in the Android world, even with 3.7 million pixels to power, on a 5.5" canvas.

The difference in display imagery, however, seems much larger. In the slideshow below, you can see the Oppo Find 7 on the left, compared with the Find 7a on the right, and an HTC One put for reference on one of the pictures, as one of the best mobile screens at the moment. Thus, the Quad HD 1440x2560 pixels display of the Find 7, is apparently exhibiting colder colors, and the 1080p Find 7a screen is much warmer, while both are somewhat off, compared to the reference display of the HTC One.

Yeah, most probably. Find 7a is better. Colors are warmer and pics are cooler. Screen is also much better than 7.

HTC one still has the best display.The all new one will have even a better display than the one, and which I believe will be better than z2 and s5.

I could deal with the colors looking more washed out on the 7 if there was at least more visible detail, but there isn't. At least not in those samples.

Like I said, cheap Chinese gear at its best. For all its pixels, look how poor and uncalibrated it is. I bet the same circumstances holds true for the battery and performance. The camera is also been pretty much dismissed as "meh" at best. Oppo might be a big manufacturer in its country, but it can't escape the Chinese whitebox curse of generic mediocrity.

Ok! you can buy an expensive virtue phone... I am wondering what you are doing on this post cheap phone guy?... dont just bash the efforts of some lesser know company or establish your own company and manufacture expensive phones, lets say 1 million dollars a piece n feel happy about it...

Price point will make or break outside of China.. If its low cost, and available, these will make a dent in sales of other OEM quite easily. Out of the three above, I'd scoop the 7A.

there is no big defferince actually there is no defferince,it's only about colors that make defferince between these two,qhd is just too much for such small size displays,,720p on xperia t and 1080p on z,we tried so hard to find a little more details on z,90% the same,,it's just marketing for giving reason to people for changing their phones,I appreciate Sony and Samsung for choosing 1080p,, so what after 2k,then 4k so then????????they should be more wise,before they run out of everything

The 7a is so much better! The screen AND the benchmarks were better.

I just want to know how the 7a got higher benchmark than the premium find 7 with it Qhd and 2.5 ghz and 3GB ?????

The 7a got a better FPS rate because its slightly less powerful processor only had to power a little more than half the number of pixels than the 7. The 7a simply has better performance and is a much better phone; 2k is an unnecessary and performance-hungry gimmick.
