1. 2.5D curved screen like a violin!

Exterior wise, the Oppo R7 Plus uses the well-known 2.5D curved screen in the front part of the body. The curved screen also signify the violin which provides a better grip for the user.

2. 0.1 seconds instant focus!

The Oppo R7 comes with 0.1 seconds instant focus and 0.7 seconds fast launching the camera app and take an instant photo of the moment! This features has truely outplayed some fast autofocus camera out there. However, we will test out the photo quality of this feature and let you know soon!

The R7 plus is equipped with IMX278 image sensor which comes with RGBW sensor. This results in the reduction of noise in photo up to 78% while increase the brightness for 32%. However, the Huawei P8 which carries the similar image sensor does not comes out as satisfactory other camera due to the saturation of red colour in the photo. We wonder how does this camera perform in the real life scenario.

Oppo R7 Plus support lots of shooting mode!

We test out the instant photo taking feature highlighted on the launch. It is truely indeed that this smartphone is able to take photo simultaneously in such as short period of time! We we’re surprised by the ultrashort focus and shutter speed to retain the instant precious moment. This function is activated by pressing the volume rocker for few seconds.

Most pictures appears clear and well focus, credits to PDAF!

3. Large display, Large battery and Fast charging!

Is 5.5 inch large enough? Some probably say no. The Oppo R7 Plus (as the Plus denoted) features a 6 inches of full HD display with screen to body ratio at 76.6%!

With VOOC quick charging technology, fully fill up a 4100mAh battery is not a hassle for the Oppo R7 Plus. The 4100mAh battery should be able to make the R7 Plus a daily driver for intensive user or just common casual use.

4. Fingerprint sensor

With a flagship in mind, the R7 Plus is designed with 91% metallic material and comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back. This could mean another level of security of your phone!

5. Color OS 2.1

R7 Plus runs on ColorOS 2.1 based on Android 5.1 and comes with a smoothness rating at 18th which outperforms stock Android and MIUI V6!

Another optimization of the Color OS 2.1 is the system boot time. The ColorOS 2.1 comes with 19 seconds boot time which is a great improvement from the older version! The system crash rate also reduced from 3.8 to 0.38% which means that force close could not a frequent issue in Oppo smartphone.
