The Good The Oppo Find X has a great design, a great camera and a long battery life with fast charging. It also has the highest features such as 3D face scan for unlocking.
The Bad There is no wireless charging and it is not waterproof. It may get a little warm during games and is not yet sold outside of Asia.
The Bottom Line Opco Find X’s Supercool popup camera and beautiful, all-screen design make it the best looking phone of 2018. It’s also one of the best phones of the year.
At first glance, Oppo Find X looks the most beautiful Samsung Galaxy S9 have you ever seen, with a massive display and great curved sides. But this sleek, futuristic phone has an innovative identity that carries it past the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus: a true full-screen display with a rear and selfie camera module that slides up when you want to take a picture. The array of pop-up cameras may seem bizarre, but it’s actually a clever idea that frees up screen stillness and helps keep your phone pad clean and beautiful.
Oppo Find X is not just the most beautiful phone I’ve used all year. It’s also one of the best phones of 2018.
Thanks to its great shots, fast processor and extraordinary battery life, Find X is pretty knockout. However, you should be aware of minor annoyances before you rush to buy it. To start taking pictures of the landscape with the camera extended – a little inconvenient if you are used to holding it by the edges, the moving part repels your hand.
Oppo Find X is the sexiest phone of 2018
The multi-screen display makes it easier to accidentally press the screen because it has too little a panel to rest your fingers on. These occasional screen taps happen mostly in camera mode – you often accidentally go into panorama mode. Despite the wireless charging, despite the glass back, or waterproofing, like many other flagship phones.
On the other hand, Oppo Find X is one damn device that should be at the top of your list … if you can find it and if it works with your operating bands, especially for 4G data. However, it cannot be obtained through third-party online resellers, although digging may be necessary. Currently, Find X sells for 4999 yuan in China, converting about $ 735, £ 560 or $ 995. It is also available in Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia and Singapore.
Although Find X falls on the more valuable end of the smartphone spectrum, especially for a Chinese brand that is often proud of its value, it will still be your upscale device that is sure to turn its head with its striking design and this magical pop up camera.
Oppo Find X is the magic of design
I have already mentioned how I like the look of the Find X, but once you get your hands on it, it’s hard not to be blown away by the beauty of it. The purple-red rear trim is stunning, as is the blue version. On the front, Oppo cleverly adds dim light that moves around the edges of the screen every time you receive a notification. Very cool.
Like the iPhone X , Find X’s Face Unlock uses a secure 3D scanning method, so the camera pops up every time you unlock your phone. The Oppo provider boasts 0.0001 percent billing and payment authentication. You might think that it may take a little longer to unlock your phone, but it takes less than a second to swipe from the on display.
Find X is the “former”, not the “top ten” – not the first phone to maximize screen performance by hiding a mechanized camera module inside the phone. Oppo’s sister company, Vivo, first did Apex, then Vivo Nex ($ 549 on Amazon) who pulled out a selfie camera. Oppo feels bolder. Not only does it have dual rear cameras, it also has a 25MP front camera and 3D scanning technology. Following in the steps of the iPhone X, this uses a deep sound camera to scan your face and unlock your phone.
The curved widescreen Find X screen is also amazing and provides a great viewing experience.
Although the Vivo Nex comes with a screen sensor, Oppo Find X misses the fingerprint sensor at all – there is none on the back. Find X also uses a more conventional front speaker when making calls. There is a tiny slot at the top of the display that is almost invisible.
The software does not break iOS
If there is one thing that Oppo finally did right, it is to discard its ways of copying iOS. You have an operating system that looks more like a spare Android, and still retains bits that are popular in China, such as applications sitting on the home screen instead of the application drawer. There is also gesture support, but more naturally, swiping in from the middle will bring you back to the home screen and swipe up on either side.
While it’s a fairly simple implementation, it has nothing to do with the ease of use of the iPhone. The phone also does not start with gesture control enabled, and having tried both, I still prefer the standard on-screen buttons for navigation.
One thing that can be improved is the position of the keyboard. If you use the on-screen buttons, the keyboard is slightly raised to make it look a little more natural. If you use gestures, the keyboard sits at the bottom, forcing you to type much lower, and that seems awful. In addition, if you have virtual d-pad control in games, the edge-to-edge screen may make trying to hold the phone a little harder as you find yourself trying to get your thumb in the right place, trying not to accidentally touch the display. There is less buffer for resting your hands, compared to older phones with more space.
Your phone can get hot at times, especially when playing games, and there seems to be some acceleration when it gets too hot. Most CPU chips do this to keep your phone from burning, but I’ve noticed it happens quite often on Find X – I wonder if it lacks cooling.
Oppo Find your battery, camera, and landmarks X
Oppo has been making phones with great cameras for some time now, and the dual rear Find X shooters are quite impressive. 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel cameras take a lot of great shots, and recent firmware updates have made it even better – tricky portraits don’t blur in the background and colors appear bright and bright.
The low-light image is also great, and I’ve found that it can even correctly measure the background light on the posters, allowing me to see the text without blowing it out. I’m honestly impressed with the quality of the photos. Of course, some of them may look overworked, but the average person who wants sharp photos will not mind too much. On the selfie front camera is a feature that does a 3D scan of your face and then lets you customize how you want your face fixed. You can manually adjust the eyes to make them larger, cheek thinner and chin stronger.
Check out the test images below. This is one impressive camera phone.
As for the performance of the phone, it initially runs three-dimensional games well, although the frame rate decreases slightly as it warms up. I noticed this, in particular, on the Marvel Strike Force, where certain animations felt less smooth compared to when the game started.
The QXcomm Snapdragon 845 equipped with Find X performed well against other phones with the same chip, achieving very similar results in our 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited and Geekbench 4. Tests Find the X as fast as the Vivo Nex LG G7 ThinQ .
With a 3730 mAh battery, the phone served 17 hours, 29 minutes in our tests of the CNET video system. I usually get a full day of use – and then some.
