Description

The Chinese brand, without a doubt, has been delivering users groundbreaking and attractive smartphones for years but Oppo Find X in Australia and all other countries has gone in an exciting new direction. Back in 2017, Apple announced a smartphone alongside a wide notch and many other 2018 devices such as LG G7 ThinQ and Huawei Nova 3i have also included a notch even Oppo R15 Pro. But Oppo Find X is an exception. The key highlights of Oppo Find X are related to a pop-up rear and FaceTime cameras, 6.42-inches AMOLED screen, Android 8.1 Oreo OS (upgradable to Android Pie 9.0), Snapdragon 845 and VOOC Flash Charge. What else? Let’s find out below.

Display

The display is undoubtedly the most striking factor of Find X. The face is almost entirely displayed thanks to its 87% screen-to-body ratio. In general, the display is fairly massive with a size of 6.42-inch and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Most interestingly, the display is curved which makes you remember Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge.  The AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution looks phenomenal. Colours are bright and vibrant and have nearly no issue.

Camera

Although Oppo Find X houses a hidden camera inside, it’s actually not that bad. On paper, Find X is equipped with a dual 16MP + 20MP rear cameras offering quite decent images. It has been said that it overexposes images more often than not, but the HDR range is pretty darn solid. There is a high-end 25MP front-facing camera which performs just as well. Captures images seem to have the nice skin tone but have been a bit sharper as long as we think.

Performance

Oppo Find X indeed performs admirably. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 Chipset which is coupled with a whopping 8GB of RAM and Adreno 630 manages a graphical department pretty awesome. Taking a look at its benchmark scores, Geekbench 4 has given Oppo Find X a single-core score of 2391. The OnePlus 6 scored 2454, though, whereas Galaxy S9 scored 2144. In terms of multi-core scores, Oppo Find X achieved 6216, while OnePlus 6 scored 8967 and Galaxy S9 scored 8116. (Oh!).

Storage and OS

To accommodate your loads and loads of apps, data, and files, Oppo Find X brings a massive 128GB of onboard memory. Hence, users can save an ample amount of data in their device and can get access later with a peace of mind. There’s no any expandable storage available, unfortunately. Oppo rather uses a dual-SIM tray. We would have preferred it added support for a microSD card, but it’s always good to have more options.

As far as its software factor is concerned, Oppo Find X runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. Either, it’s upgradable to Android P 9.0 or not, it’s still a mystery. 

Price

Let’s not forget that cutting-edge design, high-end specifications, and pop-up camera mean a high price. The Oppo Find X 128GB price in Australia starts from AU$1200 to AU$1240, whereas Oppo Find X 512GB goes for a whopping AU$800to AU$900. That’s iPhone X money, making Oppo Find X a bit expensive indeed. 

Battery

The Oppo Find X is backed by a massive 3730mAh non-removable battery which is being supported by Oppo’s VOOC fast charging Technology. And here is where Oppo Find X really shines. This charging Technology enables you to give it a quick blast before heading out the door, via the USB-C port. Unfortunately, you won’t get wireless charging here, which is a flagship feature Oppo has left out.
