I am not sure where you guys are located, but I am located in the US.
My biggest concerns are as follows:
1) Support/repair - We will have virtually no support/repair locally. And with Oppo/Oppostyle, it will be a long and dragged out email back and forth. Very painful. Let's say something happens a month down the road, do you even know who you're going to go to get it fixed? A lot of "headache"
2) Quality - specs wise i agree it is VERY good, but it's cheaper than others and I believe there's a difference between "US products Made in China" vs "Chinese product made in China" from a quality control standpoint. Same reason why someone would get a brand name micro SD card vs a no-name card even if same capacity.
3) OS - I have not used color OS , so I can't speak to it, but the Android OS is Jellybean, which lags behind everyone by 1 upgrade cycle. This is a clear indication that the Oppo find 7 will not get future android updates, or even then, slow and behind others by a step.
4)Roms, Rooting. I have owned android phones before and i have never "rooted" it or get roms. But browsing through Oppo forums it seems that the only way to "enjoy" Oppo find 7 (or other import phones) is through rooting and getting roms. If I don't know how to or don't want to, then isn't it going to ruin the experience I will have with Oppo?
5) Battery life when using such good displays...will drain it quick...
If anyone wants a more detailed review, Andi Sykes has one on gizchina...
This looks like a great phone and presale starts today (but only the 7a version) so I'm pretty excited :D. Was leaning towards the z2 but the price difference wasn't worth it, plus the specs are amazeballs.
I really like this phone! I have changed my mind in getting a Sony Xperia Z2 when I saw this coz now the Oppo Find 7 offers a micro SD slot and all the things I am looking can be found on this phone plus I love the Kevlar back! :)
is phone screen is beyond 1080p full hd screen is it real or something fake never heard of it...
What i like about this phone are the capacitive key, i hate on-screen keys so much...
While the phone has the top of the line specs and build, ColorOS is a mixed bag. ColorOS UI is a mess, mixing iOS and Android is never a good idea. It's struggling to find its own identity. There's no smooth implementation of the features. User Experience is everything!
thedarkknightrises, 29 Mar 2014hey its only adreno 330. and how does oppo expect it will run 2k display with acceptable frame... moreSnapdragon 801 (with Adreno 330 GPU) can handle up to 2560x2048 pixels so i guess 1440p isn't really a problem for the GPU
eset, 27 Mar 2014good spec but is china brand :(Each and every leading mobile brand made In China only.. so stop ur useless comennt...
It's a super smartphone....
GSM Arena I am expecting a Review from you . Please Review this unusual model .. My choice is Nexus 5 or Oppo Find 7

but nokia lumia 1250is the king of smart phones

The best highly spec gadget. It beats all its rivals ie.S5; Xperia Z2,LG G2 and HTC One M8.
Bring it to South Africa, I will b the first to buy one.
ani_iceman, 27 Mar 2014Even iPhone is made in China. Say you buy that?Taiwan ? Foxconn . iPhones
Chinese hav replaced n'll sectors of consumer items, even the match high end specs, still mental preception is tobe Cheap becuz durabality is main shortfall. Still see price is half of its competators. This is the Profits of Estzblished names. Never seen after 3 yrs what happened to china made brands. Vanished?
