Engadget Summary

The Find 7 and Find 7a are Oppo's flagship phones for 2014, offering similar specs with one big difference between the two. On the Find 7 you get a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440, while the Find 7a features the same size display with a more standard 1920 x 1080 resolution. Engadget's own Chris Velazco took a look at the Find 7 and found it to be a solid handset, assigning an Engadget Score of 82, so let's see how critics across the web felt about the Find 7a's differences.

Though a step down from the Find 7, the 7a's 1080p display is still fairly standard for current phones at this size, and The Next Web was pretty happy with it, saying "colors are rich and vibrant." Android Authority agrees, taking note of the "great colours" that have "the UI shining through quite well." Usually a lower resolution means a gain in battery life, but that wasn't the case here. Not that the battery life is poor, but for a device with a 2,800mAh battery PocketNow calls it "average at best."

Aside from a lower price, the rest remains the same, and the Find 7a definitely shows that Oppo is getting better at making phones. It's not the best option available, but it's still a good alternative to some of the more popular brands out there.
