@Catherine the Great: It was - the latest official Android version was 5.0
Silverstar, 30 Jan 2019up to 4.4That's ridiculous. It could be updated further!
Does this phone not have any more software updates? Because it seems like it never did according to GSMArena. Please don't tell me Android 4.3 is the latest version (excluding custom ROMs)...
Syafx, 08 Oct 2018I miss this phone..my old phone..after three years i use this phone is not bad..but it cannot ... moreIt is one of those early smartphone that pioneering 2K screen, and also pioneering fast charging.
I miss this phone..my old phone..after three years i use this phone is not bad..but it cannot update to new version.for me it is 9/10.because its fine to use.
I'm now using lineage 15.1 unified storage. It's good except widevine CDM security level is l3. Can't recall if it's already l3 before flashing.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2018Can u tell where did u get that update?You are asking question from 2 years ago.
Real story is like that, before there is OPPO forum, the ROM is downloaded from there.
Then, just download the zip file into the phone internal memory or micro sd card, then go to
Setting>General>About Phone, then press the "System Update" button, then at that page, top right there is an icon, tap on that icon and choose "Local Update", it will search the update zip file. I still have that update zip file with me if you really want to update your phone. The ColorOS 2.1.5i will update phone into Android 5.0.
I have upgraded for more than 3 years ago, and it works until today. Maybe I have to use Google Drive for this update to be uploaded for download.
all seems well to me except for the overheating issue if you are a heavy user. i only have one problem with this phone, although all it takes is just a few extra steps instead of just a push of a button away which is using the phones personal hotspot. unlike other phones, once you have enabled the phones personal hotspot, other devices is able to detect it but for this phone we have to use bluetooth tethering. i have used oppo neo 5s, all it takes is just enable personal hotspot and thats it.
hi ? why my software update of colorOS for oppo f7 cannot download via mobile data?
This is, I would say, the last good OPPO phone. Well, the OPPO N3 maybe is the contender, but this one at least officially upgraded to Android 5.0, and it is the only one to feature 2K screen. However, due to the old Snapdragon 801 SoC, this one consistently overheat if playing heavy game, or using extensively.
Otherwise, a good phone of it's generation literally.

Why My Google Play Store Not Update To Latest Version After I Upgrade the ColorOs 2.1.5I?
Your phone battery has probably gone into deep discharge mode(search google). You will need to give your battery a boost charge, that would revive your battery. A normal charger cannot charge your battery from this state. Also remember, once battery goes into deep discharge it causes a great damage, and in any situation you get back your battery into life again, it will never run to its full capacity.
Next time, when you are not using your phone, do remove the battery after giving it a full charge. Thanks!
This phone keep for one month never use at all, now l charged up for 5 hours still no display, you can feel the phone still every cool , can any one help.
