Oppo trolls Samsung, says the Galaxy Note 4's Fast Charging feature isn't that impressive

One of the new features of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 (announced yesterday) is Fast Charging - which allows its battery to go from 0% to 50% in about 30 minutes. That’s pretty impressive for a handset the size of the Note 4. Or is it? Oppo doesn’t seem to be impressed by Samsung’s new technology, and quickly informed the South Korean company on Twitter that its Find 7 (pictured on the left) comes with Rapid Charging, allowing it to go from 0% to 75% of battery life in 30 minutes.

Of course, we must mention that the battery inside the Find 7 is a tad smaller than the unit Samsung has packed into the Note 4: it’s a 3000 mAh battery versus a 3220 mAh one. But we can’t blame Oppo for trying to point out that its flagship smartphone had a fast-charging battery well before the Note 4. The Oppo Find 7 also had a 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) display before the new Note. Sure enough, it doesn’t really matter who was the first to implement a new feature, but who does it better - and, in the end, who sells more products.

Nice try OPPO, but your rapid charging suuuuuuucks! the trade-off? It drains rather quick With SAMSUNG we'll have to see if the Note 4's battery can really deliver, fast charging is utterly useless without the ability to hold its charge for a significant amount of time.

For once I agree with you. Oppo Find 7 has a really bad battery life. As soon as the screen is on the battery is offhttp://cdn.gsmarena.com/vv/reviewsimg/oppo-find-7/battest.jpg

OPPO just wanna take some fame of that. When they touch the Star, they feel like the Star.

It Make No sense when the Battery Capacity is Different and i Bet 75% Last less Then 50% of the note 4

75% of 3000 is 2250. 50% of 3220 is 1610. That's a 40% difference.

Have you ever held a note 3?, MKHB said that the back feels like the note 3s but the skipped the leather stitching. It feels really good imo

The Oppo Find 7 doesn't have a stylus, and the camera is awesome. Also, are you calling a 2.5 GHZ Snapdragon 801 with 3 GB of RAM dope ass?

Lol, I am loving all the backlash these companies are getting with each troll attempt. So far LG, OnePlus and now Oppo have tried, all so far have failed as overall the Note 4 is better than anything in their portfolios! :D

OPPO trolled wrong company. Its not new feature by Samsung and its Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0. Also all company that have Qualcomm chipset inside, have this feature and not just Samsungs Note 4. OPPO FInd7 does use Qualcomm chipset too. LOL?

Samsung will continue down south and be eaten by not just Oppo but also Huawei Lenovo XiaoMi

In your dreams ONLY. Samsung is far better than any Chinese smart phone maker. Japanese companies are better than both(I mean Sharp and Fujitsu, who sell only in Japan).

Xiaomi is the future. you can't deny that.

I don't see this happening today. Do you own any Xiaomi? Are those fast and not laggy?

Yes a curved phone on the side with functional controls is not anything new.
