    4000mAh would be better, and non removable is also disappointing…

      wow, i knew there’s 5000mah in 5inch phone
      is 4000mah really needed? yeah of course it will be better but is 3100mah not enough?

      i really hope next gen of smartphone improve about power efficiency only 1000mah for 5inch QHD display for 2 days active use

        I guess we will see how power efficient will it actually be, but unless it manages to last a whole day with wifi on, 2-3 hours of fullhd mkv video, some gaming and all this while outdoors in the sun with visible everything… then it isn´t really groundbreaking as they hyped it…

    I also expected 4000mAh, even if not removable.

    4000mah on a 5″ screen is overkill if your trying to keep the phone compact and price down. With that much battery its on par with note series plus whatever power efficient new tech they teased…

      Nope they just have to make the battery wider instead of making it bulkier

        Good point… Don’t forget the USB 3.0

    And One is out! Seems to me the new oppo is much more attractive with a removable battery!

    A non removable battery makes the One illegal to be sold to Germany.

    If the price is 350 usd for international buyers i believe this is my next phone

    Non-Removable Battery……does that mean zero dual sim?

    Seema that way, I hope i’m incorrect!

    • March 9, 2014

      It is very very unlikely to have dual SIM

    All of your hopes are too high from a mobile company. Honestly Oppo was perfectly fine with the Find 5. I had no issues. The only issue was the Software Version/Development. I ended up leaving ColorOS before it was even called color OS for Omni Rom. I don’t care what Oppo has to offer like SD Card, Removeable battery, and so on in the Find 7 because the Software Version/Development sucks from the OEM. People will start complaining about the phone software more than the type of hardware it has.

    I like the One Plus and it is looking more attractive as they continue to release specs every 2-3 days because knowing it will carry Cyanogen, SD800, and a 3100mAh makes me know that this phone will last like it is supposed too. The entire day on medium usage. My Find 5 lasts me 14hrs a day with only 30% by the time I come home, and again on Omni.

    The original OEM software matters. What I’ll be looking for now in the One Plus is the Camera Hardware, and that will determine if I will get 1+ or the Sony Z2. Oppo has no hopes of being my future phone, but I won’t judge to early as they haven’t released more information about it until this week? Or next?

    yep Andi nothing wowy. They keep spoonfeeding their potential customers like babies. Flesh news! A teaser inside a teaser. Mystery technology. I thought oppo was annoying! I take it back. Oneplus morons take the biscuit hahah Nothing interesting whatsoever has been shown or mentioned so far.

    Two selling points for me are Romavable battery and microSD, often both are missing from many high end phones. I’m a heavy user and always carry a 2nd battery in my bag, as finding an outlet to charge isnt always possible when on the go..

    For me it’s going to come down to the design and optimization. The specs themselves aren’t all that impressive, but certainly not bad either.

    Typical battery life on a non chinese phone is 2 years, less for a heavy user, so when the battery performance drops is the phone a dead weight or is it get out the soldering iron time
