Lower priced Oppo Find 7a outscores Oppo Find 7 on benchmark graphics test

Lower priced Oppo Find 7a outscores Oppo Find 7 on benchmark graphics test
Last week, we told you about the unveiling of two variants of Oppo's high-end Android device. The Oppo Find 7 has a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution on its 5.5 inch display on its 5.5 inch screen, while the Oppo Find 7a has a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution on the same sized screen. There are some other differences between the two variants. For example, the Find 7 is powered by a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU and the Find 7a is equipped with a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801. The pricier model has 3GB of RAM and a 3000mAh cell, while the lower cost variant features 2GB of RAM and a 2800mAh battery.

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.

The bottom bezel is mostly for the captive buttons, I think.

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

True. The colors look much better.

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.

It's actually quite the opposite. The one on the left has colder colour temperature and the right one has the warmer.

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.

Good eye, and good question.

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.

Like apple? Cheap chinese manufacturing and sold as the most expensive

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

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

Also I'm not happy you have me defending apple. :)

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...

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 unregistered

QHD is definitely NOT useless, but the hardware is not strong enough to handle it. QHD should appear from 2015.

The QHD screen is colder and definitely inferior to he 1080p 7a. With that being said, 7a > 7.

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.

If I wanted a QHD resolution device, it better be on an 8-inch plus tablet....not a phone...1080p stops there

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.

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.
