The Oppo R7 is a midrange phone, so it's no surprise that the specs aren't as impressive as flagship phones. It's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, which, based on previous experience with similar devices, is capable of offering a smooth performance. You'll be able to run games and other resource-intensive apps just fine, but don't expect anything too impressive. Other specs include 16GB of storage, 3GB of RAM and 13-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front cameras. While the 2,320mAh battery is small, the phone features fast-charging technology. Oppo claims you can charge to 75 percent in a mere 30 minutes, and in testing it came close -- I was able to hit 72 percent in the stipulated time.
If you need 4G support, there are three different versions of the phone, The international version should work on LTE networks such as Three and EE, In Australia, the R7 is an Optus exclusive if you're buying from a carrier, but the unlocked version from the Oppo website will work on other networks such as Telstra, In the US, it can protect verge case for apple iphone xs max - gray/black get 4G on both T-Mobile and AT&T, While the Oppo R7 runs on the older KitKat version of Android, the phone uses Oppo's Android-based Color OS, So I'm not faulting this phone for running KitKat, since you won't see much stock Android on it..
Oppo's customized launcher comes packed with signature Oppo features including gesture control. For example, you can activate the camera by drawing an O, or you can turn the music on by swiping two fingers downwards while the screen is off. When the screen is on, you can pinch close with multiple fingers to turn on the camera, or slide three fingers up and down to take a screenshot. The phone has a range of themes and gives you the option to change the visual effect for opening, closing and switching apps. Oppo has also included backup features and an O-Cloud sync for your contacts and messages, though this only seems to be compatible with other Oppo phones. If you're wondering where the app drawer is, it's not there. Like iOS, Color OS puts the apps right on the phone's home screen. That said, features such as control buttons -- to let you change your Wi-Fi and data settings, put the phone into airplane mode and so on -- are handily located on the notification pull-down menu.
On many large screen smartphones, the user interface isn't always optimized for the larger display, and some icons can appear too large and look awkward, It's definitely a pet peeve of mine, The R7's screen, however, isn't big enough that this would be a problem, and the icons appear to fit the screen well, The R7's camera app has a pretty simple layout, There's a big shutter button at the bottom, and when holding the phone in a landscape position, you can filter your photos by tapping the button at the top-left corner, Doing this will give you access to a bunch of filters and features, such as Ultra HD (which stitches multiple pictures into one for a larger image) and other standard modes such as panorama and HDR, There's a cool GIF animation creator, which lets you shoot a movable image like a video, but without protect verge case for apple iphone xs max - gray/black sound, You can also reverse the motion of the capture to spice things up..
The first great smartphone of 2015. Beautiful and bold..with complications. The new no-compromise MacBook. A stellar on-ear headphone. Crave-worthy curves for a premium price. The Good The Oppo R7 packs premium design into a slim, luxurious metal package. It also features Oppo's patented fast charging and you can easily get hold of it in major western markets. The Bad The phone is expensive for its midrange hardware, and its battery life isn't that good. The Bottom Line Oppo's R7 looks great, but the $400 price tag will push potential buyers away. There are cheaper phones out there that are just as good, and better ones don't cost much more.
