The Oppo Find 7a is a great offering from the Chinese company, there’s no doubt about it but we suggest you to wait for next month. Its higher end sibling, the Oppo Find 7 will be launched in India next month for Rs. 37,990 and it packs a better display, more RAM and a bigger battery.

People who cannot wait for next month or cannot shell out Rs. 6,000 more, Oppo Find 7a can be a good buy for you.  Oppo has done a great job with the Find 7a and it should not disappoint you. At this price, it’s a worthy device.

Well, that was our opinion of the just launched Oppo Find 7a. What do you think? Sound off in the comments section below and let us know. For all those planing to buy the Find 7a, the device will go on sale in India starting tomorrow.
