Oppo Latest Smartphones Are Ambiguous Surprises

oppo smartphone

Oppo is a reliable brand in the smartphone market. Recently, it took the wraps off its two new phones, the R7 Plus and R7 Lite. The R7 Lite is the successor in the R7 series. The R7 smartphone is comparatively slimmer than the other phones previously launched. Moreover, the cost has also been reduced.

Both the phones are slim and lightweight, which makes them easy to hold. The R7 Lite feels absolutely sleek but fragile whereas the R7 Plus is bigger and wider which makes it difficult to hold and use single-handedly. The feel of the R7 Lite is pleasing over R7 Plus as it is slimmer and easy to hold. The only change Oppo made is that it incorporated a full metal unibody to both of the smartphones, but this didn’t manage to give it a classy feel.

Both of these Oppo smartphones have sensors, earpieces and front camera at the top of the front panel and a loudspeaker at the bottom. Due to the difference in their sizes, the R7 Lite has capacitive touch buttons and the R7 Plus has on screen buttons. On the inside, both the Oppo phones run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with the smart user interface. However, the notification pop up design makes it appear that Android 4.4 KitKat is being used. On the other hand, a bigger notification panel should have been added in the phone to make way for quick access.


The newest Oppo devices have a crisp and vibrant screen. Out of the two, the R7 Plus, is the clear winner because of its 6-inch full HD display screen and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The Oppo R7 Lite has a 5 inch HD resolution screen which is one inch smaller from the R7 Plus, but the screen size doesn’t add an extra advantage over the other. Due to fast, lag free and responsive features these devices have become noticeable. While the R7 Lite sports 2GB of Ram, the R7 Plus has 3GB.


The camera of both the devices is quite impressive. However, plenty of camera modes are available in these smartphones including Panorama, HDR, Slow Shutter, Ultra HD etc. These phones indeed have an excellent 13MP rear camera with f/2.2 apertures and an 8MP front camera with f/2.4 aperture. Furthermore, R7 Plus has an autofocus property for quick capturing of photos. The only benefits the Oppo R7 Plus has over Oppo R7 Lite is a fingerprint sensor feature as it adds more security to the device.


The Oppo R7 Plus has a fair battery life of 4100mAh that lasts for a day and a half whereas the R7 Lite has a 2320mAh non-removable battery. These devices charge 75% of the battery within half an hour.

However, most of the features found in these Oppo phones are available in other devices at a much cheaper price but adopters of these devices can receive more RAM, decent selfie camera, metal body and more inbuilt storage. Therefore, the new Oppo phones have a nice design but are unable to compete with other phones with same specifications.

The HTC One is not only about the name the owners have thoughtfully kept, but more about its literal meaning. The handset tops people’s expectation list in ways that are legion. It’s a branding strategy for the company, and the great news is that the model has come to justify this strategy well. If you render a look at the One series, you will notice how the features are perfectly embedded, keeping the phone’s name in mind.

The next model after the previous year’s One X has now been launched and is simply called the One. Taking HTC’s design and imaging achievements to the next level, this new handset brings in a new UltraPixel camera sensor, among various other high-end specifications. The gorgeous design of the phone is breathtakingly spectacular which gives it a suave and subtle look. The camera also does very well in low light and the powerful quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip is something to talk about as far as the phone’s performance is concerned. With a stunning 4.7-inch, 1080p display, the device showcases the best image quality and appeal of the media files. With smart features like the Zoe Share and Highlight Reel, there’s more to this new gadget of HTC than meets the eye.

The One is an Android 4.4.2 device with Sense 5, the next generation user interface. The most dramatic change in the UI is the feature called BlinkFeed, which descends as the default home page on the phone’s screen. Not only is this feature attractive, it also keeps the busier people connected to the world at all times by relaying news and social media updates of all kinds via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc.

We can say that HTC has come a long way from its previous flagship phones to provide something more polished and useful. The phone’s superb design, its camera, aspects of Sense 5, such as BlinkFeed and the One’s two-button layout, have enhanced the user experience multifold. Its beautiful design, great display and great performance make it among the finest phones available.
