Oppo R5 was known for be­ing 4.85mm-thin, but it had a tiny bat­tery ca­pac­ity to con­tend with. The R7 ramps up the qual­ity of the phone across the board, topped off with a pre­mium fin­ish to the phone's chas­sis.

Cur­rently, the R7 mea­sures 6.3mm thin, but the phone still feels very slen­der to the touch. It's one of hand­ful of mid-range smart­phones with a proper me­tal uni­body frame with a rear made from an air­craft-grade mag­ne­sium/alu­minum al­loy. Oppo also claims that their R7 had un­der­gone 48 pol­ish­ing pro­cesses to achieve its cur­rent look. The sides fea­ture cham­fered me­tal edges that in­ter­rupt the rounded bezel fin­ish on rear and front glass to pro­vide ex­cel­lent grip.

The R7's 5-inch Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pix­els) AMOLED screen with nearly 441 ppi makes the col­ors look vi­brant and the high pixel den­sity makes im­ages ap­pear re­ally sharp. With ColorOS 2.1's Eye Pro­tec­tion Dis­play, you can pick be­tween the three for dif­fer­ent fil­ter in­ten­sity for short­wave blue light, and helps to re­duce eye strain while us­ing the smart­phone.

This par­tic­u­lar model does a nano SIM, Mi­croSIM com­bi­na­tion with dual standby sup­port. You could also choose to give up the sec­ond SIM
