Again, for update to Android 5.0 or ColorOS v2.1.5i, you need to manually update it. Hit the update at "System Update" won't update your phone.
Download the zip file from OPPO official forum.
Follow instruction at the forum to upgrade. But beware, you must backup all you stuff before upgrade as this update will wipe all data in your phone. It is a fresh install for Android 5.0.
The same apply for Project Spectrum which is based on Android 5.1.1. Sadly, Find 7 won't receive Android 6.0 updates.

can oppo find 7 can have a software update from version 4.3 until 4.4?
Hi, I bought it almost a year and half ago. So the ColorOS is currently V1.2.9i and using Android version 4.3. But I found out recently that there were many new releases for it after that, however clicking on system updates didn't help, it said its already the latest version. Can I update straight to the V2.1.5i? and if so how do I do that?

these are in my whishlist :
Xperia z1... moreYou can combine the storage in the storage option to use all full 32GB storage instead of 3GB by default, ask the shop people to do this for you or you do it yourself. But this will factory reset your phone, so please make sure back up all your stuff before proceed.
You can also upgrade your phone OS to Android 5.0 or Color OS V2.1.5i, this will also auto "combine" storage by default.
You only have to perform this for once.
Someone still say HTC M8 is better? It is actually comparable to HTC M8. But both phone are perfectly usable. I choose Find 7 for it's bigger display, removable battery, and it's much cheaper price. Then, this Find 7 has fast charging, and it works till today. I buy 2 other original spare battery for my heavy usage, and the battery is half price of Samsung's one.
From some one who actually using this phone for 2 years.
My oppo find 7 is having a problem in which the screen isn't appearing but the gestures i make on screen are responding like two parallel lines for music or the 'v' for torch light! Please kindly tell me what the problem is?????
