2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 3 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • The Oppo Find X is a stunning phone, anyway you look at it - with beveled edges, a beautiful gradient back design and the highest screen-to-body ratio available, it is quite the looker - the body feels quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9 with its curved sides — even the top and bottom contour inwards to create a nearly uniform design - the rear color is also a sloping gradient, and creates beautiful reflections in light - very simply, this is one of the most beautiful phones ever designed
  • What makes the design really unique is that the rear and front cameras are hidden inside the phone itself - when you launch an app using the camera, the Oppo Find X will lift the shaded window at the top of the phone to reveal the cameras beneath - the whole process takes about half a second!
  • With no fingerprint reader, the biometric authentication part is handled by the a 3D infrared based Face unlock mechanism - and it works basically as well as the iPhone X - i.e. effectively, seamlessly and even in the dark

Software

  • ColorOS is a decent, iOS-like, Android skin, and works seamlessly on the Find X (though a lot of people these days tend to prefer more stock like Android experiences)

Performance

  • With some of the latest hardware available on the market (including the awesome Snapdragon 845), the Oppo Find X, as expected, performs admirably - and in line with other flagships like the OnePlus 6 and the Galaxy S9

Camera

  • Besides the camera module, the display is definitely the most striking aspect of this device - the face of the phone is almost completely display, clocking an incredible screen-to-body ratio of 93.8 percent - the display is also fairly massive in general, with a size of 6.42 inches and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio - the 1, 080 x 2, 340 AMOLED display looks phenomenal - colors are punchy and vibrant - and it can also get pretty dim at night to avoid hurting your eyes
  • The dual rear-facing 16 and 20MP cameras perform quite well - the dynamic range especially is very good, and so is the portrait mode
  • The 25MP front facing camera performs just as well, and selfies have nice skin tones
  • Overall, the cameras are pretty good, although still a notch below the best - the likes of the Pixel 2 or the Galaxy S9
  • One long-term possible issue with the phone could be durability, due to the added moving part of the camera piece - although Oppo claims the camera module can be raised and lowered over 300 thousand times, but the real test would be when people actually use this device daily for months/years
  • The camera module also tends to get dirty very easily - just keeping the phone in your pocket normally will make it collect quite a bit of dirt and lint, that you will need to clean out every now and then
  • There is also an issue with the camera app, where it can take a good 3-4 seconds for the live viewfinder to appear (this might get fixed via a software update though)

Audio

  • Like many modern flagships, you are also left with no standard headphone jack on the Find X - you will either have to use USB-C headphones, bluetooth headsets, or use the included dongle if you want to use your old 3.5mm jack headphones

Battery

  • Very good battery life - moderate use will give you a comfortable day and a half on the device
  • The Find X also uses Oppo’s VOOC fast-charging standard, and it juices up the device very quickly
