Just last week, Oppo announced two new handset in the form of the Oppo Find 7 and the Find 7a. For the most part the handsets appear to be similar in terms of design, but it’s under the hood which is where the differences lie.
The Find 7 will pack a QHD display, 3GB of RAM, and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801. This is compared to the Find 7a’s Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, and the Snapdragon 800. On paper this would give the Find 7 a slight edge in terms of hardware.
However interestingly enough during a Basemark benchmark scoring, it was discovered that the Oppo Find 7a actually outperformed the Find 7 ever so slightly in terms of graphics. The Find 7a achieved a score of 61.19 while the Find 7 only got 59.61. It does seem a little odd give the Find 7’s “superior” hardware, but it has been speculated that the Find 7a’s lower amount of pixels could have lead to a higher score.
Interestingly enough it also seems that the Find 7’s screen does not appear to be as good as the Find 7a’s. According to comparisons using the same photo, it seems that the Find 7’s display produces a slightly blue-ish tint, versus the Find 7a which manages to produce slightly more vibrant and vivid colors.
We’re not sure why this is or if it can be corrected via a firmware update, but for now if you were considering either the Find 7 or the Find 7a, these are some things that you should probably take into consideration.
