Early comparisons rate the Oppo Find 7a over the Find 7!

oppo find 7a vs oppo find 7

Last week Oppo launched the Oppo Find 7a and Find 7. Already the early comparisons are flooding in, but the results aren’t exactly what we had thought.

Oppo launched 2 smartphones last week, the Oppo Find 7a  and the flagship Oppo Find 7. The two phones are identical to look at and hold but their are hardware differences which separate the two phones.

The Oppo Find 7a has a 2.3Ghz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and 1920 x 1080 while the flagship Oppo Find 7 has a more powerful 2.5Ghz processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory and higher resolution 2560 x 1440 display. With higher level hardware many Oppo fans have decided to hold off for the launch of the Find 7, but it could be the Find 7a which makes for the better phone.

Review site Eprice pegged the Find 7a and Find 7 head to head against one another, and interestingly it is the cheaper Find 7a which comes out on top. According to the review and comparison the Oppo Find 7a not only performs better in benchmarks but the 1080 FHD display offers better colour reproduction.

At the launch last week I tried both the Oppo Find 7a and Find 7 and have to admit that going from one to the other it was impossible to tell the two phones apart in performance or screen quality. The Oppo Find 7a is on sale in China now for 2998 Yuan, the Find 7 will launch at a later date at 3498 Yuan.

Which version of the Oppo Find 7 will you purchase? Let us know in the comments section below.

    That the Find 7a scores higher in benchmark actually makes sense.

    Keep in mind that the MSM8974-AB in the Find 7a has the exact same GPU and memory frequencies as the MSM8974-AC in the Find 7. The CPU in 8974-AC is higher clocked, but just barely.

    The fact that the Find 7 needs to push almost twice as many pixels would mean it’ll need much higher processing power to just match the performance of the Find 7a.

      Which begs the question why you need a 2560 x 1440 resolution on a 5 inch display. I’ll bet you can’t even tell which phone is the one that has the higher resolution if you see them both side by side.
      At least Oppo is offering you the option of getting the FullHD one instead of forcing you to buy the “look at my screen spec” 2560 x 1440 one.

      but find 7 does have 3gb ram instead of the 2gb in 7a

    But the Find 7 is still not out yet. It’ll probably take some time for them to calibrate the screens properly.

      i also think too that it did not release along with the 7a because they still have to tweak things

        It wasn’t mentioned that this was a preproduction model under review.
