As expected, the Oppo Find 7 has been unveiled in Beijing on March 19, and as previously confirmed by the manufacturer, the Find 7 will be available in two main variants, one of which packs a Full HD Display, whereas the other uses a QHD panel.
There are a few other differences between the two models, aside from the fact that they feature different screen resolutions, and now that the guys over at ePrice have been able to compare both devices side-by-side, we can now discuss in detail how these discrepancies affect these two models.
As such, if you’re planning on buying one of the Find 7s and you’re not convinced which one you should pick, then you might want to check out the details below.
QHD, FHD Oppo Find 7 Display Comparison and Benchmark Scores
First things first, let’s clear out the hardware differences between these two models. The Oppo Find 7A is the full HD version, packing a 5.5 inch 1080p display with a pixel density of 401 ppi. Inside there’s a Snapdragon 801 MSM8974-AB quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage expandable by up to 128 GB via microSD.
On the other hand, the second Find 7 packs a 5.5 inch 2560p display, resulting in a pixel density of 534 ppi. Under the hood beats the heart of a Snapdragon 801 MSM8974-AC quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage expandable by 128 GB.
Leaving the display comparison on hold for a minute, we should take a look at how these differences in hardware specs affect the overall performance, at least in synthetic benchmark tests. Take a look below for details.
Long story short, the full HD model appears to score more points than its sibling, despite the fact that it packs a less powerful processor and less RAM. This is most likely due to the fact that the 1080p model has fewer pixels to “worry about”, and the hardware components have less work to do.
Now, onwards with the display comparison.
It’s quite obvious that given the difference in screen resolution, the QHD model will deliver a crisper image, at least when you look really closely. However, the difference in resolution is not the only aspect that you should take into account, as the QHD Find 7 appears to deliver much cooler colors (as in cold, not “hip”), whereas the Find 7A Full HD’s screen is capable of creating warmer tones.
