General Performance and Observations (Day to Day usage)
Overall the phone is pretty snappy with its 3GB ram, Multi-tasking is a smooth affair switching between apps easily without lag. The Snapdragon 615 is pretty quick as well, infact this phone seems to be on par with another phone of my wirh Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM.
The ColorOS is pretty well optimized performance wise, the interface however is the least of my liking, it feels very iOS. The Stock launcher on my set have been replace with Nova launcher just like every of my devices.
The Screen has got good viewing angel and visiblity under the bright sun is good. Being an AMOLED screen the colors are indeed vibrant, but it isn't overwhelming, Earlier generations of AMOLED screen tend to be overstaturated, but the one on the OPPO R7 is fine.
The 2320mah Battery isn't huge by today's Standard, but overall the battery life is very decent.
