Remember the time when I reviewed the uber chic Oppo N3 smartphone? Well, we all loved its rotating camera feature and trendy body, and Oppo has decided to take things ahead with its latest offering - Oppo R7 Plus.
Oppo R7 Plus is more of a phablet with a premium and unique large-screen Metal Unibody that makes it uber stylish and trendy. That's not all, it is loaded with other amazing features as well which I am going to talk about in this post.
In this post, I will be reviewing the phone on three major factors : Features, Camera and Battery Life.
Oppo R7 Plus has a 6 inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen that makes it quite a huge smartphone, but a blessing for those who love their smartphones - bold and big.
It has a 2.5D Arc Edge Screen with a concept of 'Free Curves' that gives it redefined curves and adds beauty to its design.
Featuring a large memory with 3GB RAM and a quad-core Snapdragon 615 processor, it allows you to store numerous apps and use them smoothly. One of the interesting features is its Fingerprint sensor which is in the form of a square sensor at the back, that can be pressed gently to activate the phone and unlock it.
Oppo R7 Plus allows you to use Dual sim or use one sim with an external Micro SD card. It already has a 32GB in-built memory which is more than enough for smartphone users like me who only like to store Songs, Pictures and selective apps.
Oppo R7 Plus is loaded with a 13MP camera with Laser Autofocus and Sony IMX278 sensor, f/2.2 lens, and dual LED flash.
Its Ultra HD imaging mode helps take very crisp and sharp pictures, but I do think that the picture quality isn't quite very impressive even with the many features.
Here are a few unedited shots taken from the main camera while out for festive shopping :
The camera does help capture minute and major details of an object in depth, but I think it doesn't get the lighting of the photograph very accurately.
The 8MP front camera faired better as it helped take bright, beautiful shots. And its feature Beautify 3.0 helps customize the photograph with pre-set effects that instantly
beautify any pi ture.
Battery Life :
Coming to the battery life, the R7 Plus has an ultra-large battery capacity and features Flash Charging that enables you to charge the smartphone faster and just 5 minutes of charging supports 2 hours of talk time.
Perfect for users like me who travel a lot and don't necessarily get a lot of time to fully charge the phone between continuous use of the phone to take pictures, browse internet or watching videos.
Especially in this wedding season, when you are out and about shopping or attending festivals, you really don't want to struggle with low battery while taking pictures or videos, that's where its Battery life proves that it can last long while you capture all your favorite memories.
Overall Views :
At a price tag of Rs 29,999 for its 32 GB model, Oppo R7 Plus is definitely an impressive smartphone/phablet with a stylish metallic body and classy looks. But it is a smartphone that might only attract people who love bigger phones, as it is slightly difficult to use with just one hand.
Also, if you are a person who can't live without listening to FM all day long, you may want to re-consider as it lacks NFC or FM radio.
But if its all about Looks, high quality camera, amazing battery life and higher Internal memory, Oppo R7 Plus might just be the perfect pick for you.
