Hi guys, i am currently using the Z2, its great, the camera is superb. The downside is the shutting down of the camera during recording of regular 1020p video ... very annoying!! Recently the oppo find 7a was launched & i was amazed by the specs. The design , ESPECIALLY THE CAMERA!!!.The only down side is the COLOUR OS. ITS UGLY, VERY UGLY... By the way, just need some comments if its worth the switch? Have been reading oppo find 7a reviews these weeks... very tempting to switch over... what you guys think?

Comparison threads are strictly a no no.
But...Z2 is waterproof, has better materials and a better camera.
Wait for an update. Most shutdowns are being worked on.

lets really hope that SONY will fix this shutting down issues, as shutting down the camera after recording on normal 1080p for abt 14mins is too short.

By the time everything is fixed, the Z3 will be out in September.

It's not even a comparison. The oppo has a ton of problems. Especially battery life. I've got one and I have ordered a z2 and Will be returning the find 7. Mine just lost 30 percent battery overnight without a sim card in it and WiFi off. And then if I try to plug it in when I'm in the car, the phone constantly reboots. I've tried 3 car chargers. Save some frustration and spend the extra money for the z2. If the only problem is that I can't video for more than 15 minutes then I'm fine with that. Don't think I've ever tried to video with a phone for more than 5 minutes anyway.

Thanks for letting us know abt the experience of the 7a

Well it uses a Sony camera. And from what I've seen and read in the reviews, the 50mp setting is more of a gimmick than something functional
