OPPO R7 Plus Review
A phablet that lets you do the talking.
The Oppo R7 Plus sounds pretty good on both sides of the conversation. Due to the noise cancellation employed, voices from it appear slightly muffled, but it's nothing too terrible. The earpiece is plenty loud, and so is the loudspeaker, so chances are you won't have trouble carrying out a conversation in noisy environments.
A big battery and efficient processor make for excellent battery life. Bonus – fast charging!
Moreover, the Oppo R7 Plus takes a pretty reasonable 107 minutes to fully charge its battery with the bundled cable and charger. You have to thank Oppo's VOOC fast charging technology for that. However, wireless charging doesn't come on this phone, so if you like that piece of technology, you should probably look elsewhere.
Battery life (hours) Higher is better
OPPO R7 Plus 9h 58 min (Excellent)
Google Nexus 6 7h 53 min (Good)
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 8h 43 min (Excellent)
LG G4 6h 6 min (Average)
Charging time (minutes) Lower is better
OPPO R7 Plus 107
Google Nexus 6 98
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 95
LG G4 127
Overall, the Oppo R7 Plus is a smartphone for users who insist on having a seriously large display for Internet and multimedia consumption, and also have design as a priority over premium-tier specifications. For this type of smartphone user, Oppo's phablet should tick nearly every mark. In addition, the R7 Plus has a camera that's very good, at least for the most part, and its battery life is excellent. But that's about all that makes the phablet great.
The complaints we have are quite substantial. Basically, The R7 Plus's display characteristics don't live up to its price tag, which revolves around the $500 mark. The phone's performance also leaves a lot to be desired, especially when it comes to graphics performance.
For the same amount of money Oppo asks for the R7 Plus, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 offers a better display, significantly faster graphics, a better camera, and additional functionality over the Oppo R7 Plus. Then there's the Google Nexus 6, which is more responsive with its performance and packs a better screen, all while costing less than 400 bucks. And while we're at it, we can also recommend the sub-$500 LG G4 as a high-end smartphone that may be a bit smaller and lack that metallic lustre, but has a higher-resolution display and is likely superior to the Oppo R7 Plus with its camera performance. We think these three phones make for more sensible buys.
- Good design and build quality
- Competent pair of cameras
- Satisfying battery life
- Display not very true to life
- Poor video shooting quality
- Poor gaming performance and some UI lags
