If for iPhone, the buttons won't work, but headphones and microphone still should (tried VModa Remix, which specifically states Made for iPhone/iPad).
But Sony "Android headset" works properly, at least in my case.
Using 4.4.2 OS update, never tested in JellyBean though.
Hi everyone I just bought my find7a a week ago and I am loving it. VOOC charging is awesome. Great camera front and back more impressively that it captures 50mp. I use mine for playing games,listening to music, heavy messaging, youtube, phone calls, awesome stereo speaker, and my battery last for a day and a half. Screen display is crisp and clear.
Never thought of a China brand would come this far. Hoping these new small companies will come up and continue with new ideas and offer much better specs for a reasonable price than those over expensive Apple devices, Samsung, HTC. This phone will definitely give Apple, Samsung a run for their money.
one thing I noticed though, Mine does not work properly with 3rd party accessory : earphones : I hope this can be resolved with an update.
Everything else is close to perfect no lag, speedy processor. Best smartphone I had so far. Works great in Dubai.
Mobilemaster, 24 Oct 2014How does this version has a better battery life than the one with 3000 mAh? Anyway both have a... moreThe reason why the Find 7 has worse battery life with the bigger battery is because the screen resolution is higher (qHD) with more pixels and thus more energy hungry. It's in the review for the Find 7.
turning off your LTE and using the H+ give significant increase in battery life. if you can live without 4G LTE like me then this is a great for battery life. H+ speeds in singapore is fast anyways. streaming is no problem
How does this version has a better battery life than the one with 3000 mAh? Anyway both have a weak battery.
Updated to KitKat and I am not particularly thrilled about it.
While the update process (alas manual) went smooth, I am less than thrilled by the iPhone lookalike OS.
Basically, the app drawer is gone, so all apps you download get dropped straight into the main pages, and it's hard to move them around. No reshuffling of pages, which is just as stupid as iOS, with difference that KK has Widgets, which some of need complete pages to accommodate, so it does not work very well.
Overall, JB was sleeker and I somewhat regret upgrading.
Been using my oppo7a for 4mths now... loving it so far. Great battery life, no lag, great camera (but nt gd to take very close object, but brilliant taking in low light environment), great spec. Much better than my previous samsung and LG. China phones are affordable, you pay what u get,certainly not overpriced like some korean brands. Ppl dislike made in China phones l, come on,ppl. Most big brand all made in China.
I'm a supporter of China brands. Tried redmi as well, it's great too. Redmi-->oppo --> ???. Maybe lenovo and huawei soon. Lenovo a806 seem so tempting with affordable price and great spec... hehe

Else get a Greenify or similar battery saving app.
Don't expect miracles with any of those, though, as the CPU in it is still a beast and this is LTE phone, which by default burns through battery.
Just bought my oppo find 7a a week ago. So far so good, one of the best smartphone brand I've ever used. My previous phones were HTC and Samsung which I find them horrible (sorry). Oppo is soooo smooth(no lag) and the camera is pretty good. I can finally take nice selfies :) Color OS is my current fav!
The only downside is the battery life is not that long. It lasts me around a day or so just because i'm not a very heavy user (just twitter, fb, insta from time to time) The battery drainage is fast but no worries cuz it charges very very fast too I'm amazed!
Anyway, anybody knows how to improve find 7a's battery life? pleaseeee :))
seNgoku, 06 Oct 2014its that oppo find7a can waterproof???No. It is not sealed.
denise, 27 Sep 2014how is the battery life of oppo find 7a? Im thinking of getting a phone that has not-bad/ long... moreMuch longer than Find7, especially when you put the Find7 battery in it (yes, you can).
But that said, battery life is not spectacular and is barely half of the Sony XPERIA Z2 which is the longest lasting phone I have.
I need to admit though that despite that I've never ran out of juice during the day. VOOC charger also helps, which is unbelievably fast, so a quick pit stop gives you hours more battery life.
Sun, 26 Sep 2014Great phone!!!
perfectly satisfied with the Specs....
Just want to knw when the kit kat vers... moreKitkat is about to be launched, and you might hate it.
There's no more Apps drawer. It looks like iOS… you know, where everything is on the main pages, no more pressing the dots and seeing all the apps in there, while only sticking on the main pages what you want/need.
Looks like iOS, really. And despite begging of the users to at least put the apps drawer as "optional" in there, Oppo is not budging.
Ah well… time to start rooting and loading Cyanogen...

Tomazz, 20 Aug 2014Funny part is when people look at Oppo products and consider them so good… then you tell them ... moreYes, thats the case with most of the people, chinese has become a synonym for low quality products. They don't get it that any product manufactured in china is chinese. Even iPhone is chinese :)
Same is the case with my Huawei Ascend P6
please verify airtel 4g availability, i'm from bangalore and dunno how to get 4g, thou i've got a 4g nano sim..verified with airtel , oppo centers, they are confused too.
