everywhere you look these days you see phones with telescreens and notch cut outs for the selfie cam, then the question shape bezels, oppo is at the cutting edge of innovation, we are nasphones.com and this is our Oppo Find X review .
the first thing you notice about the Oppo Find X is stunning design, glass phones with telescreens aren’t too out of the ordinary these days, but nobody’s doing it quite like oppo .
the color scheme is either Bordeaux red or glacier blue, and both are quite eye-catching, the hue gets brighter and more intense towards the thin aluminum edges which are also painted .
this phone is curvy the rounded corners and sloping sides reflect light from different angles, giving a crystalline appearance, you may notice something’s missing on the back, the rear camera set up, it’s all hiding inside of Oppo signatures slide out module near the top .
this is what really defines the Oppo Find X, it houses the front and rear cameras, the camera flash and the 3d facial scanner, and slides out when you need any of them, since there’s no fingerprint reader the facial scanner is your go-to option for unlocking, so the phone has to slide out every time you unlock it, the good thing is that is quite fast .
it’s a pretty advanced scanner too similar to the one on the iPhone 10, it projects 15,000 dots to scan your facial features and is much more accurate than camera based readers .
since its infrared it even works in the dark and it won’t be tripped up by sunglasses or a hat, you can also a prefer to only work with your eyes open too for added security .
though you do need to slide out for photos and unlocking you don’t need to for calls, the actual earpiece is on the pop-up module but there’s a grill on the front glass that lets us sound through .
having moveable parts like this could be a recipe for disaster, it isn’t watertight and if that mechanism fails it’s bad news, the slider does move in under pressure which should protect it a bit from Falls .
and Oppo stands by as durability claims saying it can withstand over 300,000 slides, we’ll have to see, but the result of these innovations is that Opel was able to make this phone totally bezel-less with no notch at the top and with an almost unbroken surface design .
the drawback is that it could have some deficiencies in structural civility which some tests online of shell,
the Oppo Find X has a beautiful six point four inch curved AMOLED screen, an interesting note is that Oppo managed to embed an ambient light sensor inside of the panel .
Oppo calls it a panoramic art display, in the same vein as Samsung’s infinity display, even though it’s only 1080p and 400 PPI everything looks gorgeous and sharp and you get those deep blacks typical of an AMOLED, brightness is all right for an AMOLED, at 430 nets .
though it can’t go any higher when you use it outdoors so mileage ability is still excellent, unlike Samsung, Oppo doesn’t offer many display options, you can change white balance between warm, regular and cools, the color representation is super accurate and conforms to the DCI p3 color space .
the Oppo Find X brings an always-on display, so you can check the time and see notifications at a glance, can also set it on the schedule to save battery .
for audio the Oppo Find X has a single bottom firing speaker, though we always hope for a stereo setup but this one tests out well, loudness is very good and so is the quality, with good bass and rich sound .
since there’s no 3.5 millimeter jack you’ll have to plug in headphones to the USBC port at the bottom, unfortunately sound quality here was a bit of a disappointment in their tests, with below average volume, and unimpressive stereo separation .
the Oppo Find X has dual SIM supports and the SIM tray is dual sided is quite unusual, there is no card slot for expandable storage so you have to make do with the onboard memory .
now under the user interface, is Oppo color OS 5.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo, it’s quite far from stock Android with a lot of customizations, you can use the standard navigation bar or swipe gesture navigation .
if you offer gestures there are plenty of configurations to choose from but generally swiping up from the middle acts like a home button swiping up elsewhere it opens the test switcher or brings you back .
Oppo Find X doesn’t have an app drawer, everything is kept on the home screen, even though there are quite a few preloaded, apps the OS doesn’t feel bloated it’s all well optimized and quite snappy .
there is an AI engine which lint your habits for better resource management, and also shows you information on home screen panels based on your recent activity in history and there are a bunch of themes and wallpapers you can choose from to add a bit of flair .
at the heart of the Oppo Find X is the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 chipset on top of that it boasts a whopping 8 gigs of ram, in benchmarks it delivers a top-notch performance similar to other flagships in this class, everything runs smooth and lag free .
the Oppo Find X is large 37 hundred mAh power battery scored an endurance rating of 90 hours in our proprietary tests, not incredible, but pretty decent charging this battery shouldn’t be a problem at all though thanks to the 20 watt VOC fast charger that comes in the box with it with one from zero to 50% charge in 30 minutes, sorry and there’s no wireless charging here .
just to note that there will be another version of the fine desk called the super flash Edition coming out with a slightly smaller battery and support for Super Bowl charging, you should get you from zero to a 100% and only 35 minutes .
the Oppo Find X packs a 16 megapixel f2.0 main shooter with OIS, and a 20 megapixel F2.21 which helps with depth sensing and low-light shots, there’s an expert mode for manual controls, or you can go with AI powered Scene Recognition that adjusts automatically for your shots, the adjustments are pretty subtle .
in daylight photos we took turn out very good, with lots of detail, excellent contrast and lively colors, the samples are sharp enough but not over sharpened, just how we like it, the dynamic range is surprisingly high even without HDR, we generally left HDR off, HDR shots come out over sharpened with little to no benefit in dynamic range .
as presumed, don’t let the 2x switch fool you, it’s purely digital zoom through cropping and definitely not losses, and low-light the 60 megapixels samples we got with the 5x were excellent, they have good contrast in detail and noise is impressively low almost as is due to processing algorithms made possible by the second camera .
of course where there’s a dual camera you should expect a portrait mode these are among the better portraits we’ve seen, subjects are well separated in the transitions from sharp 2d focused or well-done .
the selfie camera is 25 megapixels in f2.0, with fixed focus it uses oppo’s 3 HDR type to create better HDR selfies, with the HDR effect applied in real time and visible on the viewfinder, the effect is excellent and a great image booster, resolved detail on selfies is flagship grade and the colors and contrast are superb, but if you don’t hit the sweet spot where the focus is fixed your photos won’t be tack sharp .
there are Sophie portraits too, which use the 3d face sensor for depth, they look great comparable to the rear-facing ones and there are plenty of portrait lighting options to enhance them .
4k videos can be recorded at 30fps, and are quite impressive with more than enough detail, great contrast, high dynamic range and true-to-life colors, there is no digital stabilization but there is OIS.
the 1080p videos are also 30fps and OIS only, they come out a bit softer than we expected, but the contrast colors and dynamic range are still great .
so the Oppo Find X, design wise it really takes the cake, it’s gorgeous, even more elegant of the vivo NEX S which also has a pop-out selfie cam, on top of that the oppo has a huge screen, secured face unlock, great performance and nice-looking photos .
like any product though it’s not perfect, there’s no waterproofing in orbit skeptical of the sliders durability, no matter what Oppo says, wireless charging and stereo speakers would have been nice to .
the Oppo Find X isn’t cheap either at around 900 bucks, but at this price point a lot of people are looking for something special, one-of-a-kind, and for that the Oppo Find X definitely delivers, for now at least, because of that we have the tip our hat to oppo .
