2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • The display is definitely one of 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 1080 x 2340 AMOLED display looks phenomenal - colors are punchy and vibrant - and it can also get pretty dim at night to avoid hurting your eyes
  • 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)
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Absolutely luscious design, continuing the design language that was introduced with the Galaxy S8 series (which is not a bad thing at all) - and it has some really sizzling color options in purple and blue, which really helps those supple curves stand out - the body colors look deep, rich and ever-changing thanks to the way the glossy glass catches the light - you will be hard pressed to find anything remotely as elegant, and beautiful in the Android market
  • The biggest design change is on the back, where the fingerprint reader moves below the camera module - this corrects the worst design mistake of both Galaxy S8 phones and the Note 8
  • Water resistant body
  • The tall, 18:9, minimal bezel, 6.2-inch AMOLED screen is absolutely gorgeous and even brighter than last year's (15 percent brighter, in fact) - and the sexy dual-curved design adds to the charm
  • Samsung software on top of Android adds some useful extras, extending the core functionality of Android - it is one of the better, more refined UIs in the Android world
  • Whiplash-fast performance backed by the super powerful Samsung's Exynos 9810 (similar to the Snapdragon 845 in terms of performance) - performance is top-notch as expected under all use cases
  • Terrific camera - the first to bring a mechanical dual-aperture lens from DSLRs to the much tinier mobile phone, a feature that's designed to let in more light, reduce image noise and generally make your photos a lot better
  • The image quality in well lit situations is top-notch
  • Low light performance often borders on astounding - with the amount of brightness & lack of noise you will find in the shots (thanks to the dual aperture lens) - although its not very consistent (some low light photos are oddly washed out)
  • The Galaxy S9 Plus also one-ups the excellent Galaxy S9 with a second rear camera for taking portrait photos - they come out well with a good bokeh effect
  • The super-slow motion video mode is pretty cool too, and when you frame the shot well, can give some incredible result
  • The selfie camera is good too, and has a new Selfie Focus mode, which uses software (and not a second lens) to create a depth effect with the front-facing camera, similar to the Pixel 2, or the iPhone X
  • On the whole the cameras on the Galaxy S9+/S9 compare well with the those on the other top camera phones - the Google Pixel 2, and the iPhone X - it's a toss up between these 3 - the Galaxy S9+ can produce some truly exceptional shots especially in the dark, but perhaps the iPhone X and the Pixel 2 are just a bit more consistent all round, everything considered
  • Dual-speaker system is excellent, and makes for loud, rich audio - and results in one of the best speaker experience of any smartphone, ever
  • Call quality is fantastic too, with the AKG tuning really paying off
  • Also has the good old-fashioned headphone jack! (that's missing in a lot of other flagships now)
  • Good (though not exceptional) battery life - will definitely last the work day on a single charge
  • Supports fast charging (although it's not the fastest around)
  • Supports wireless charging
  • DeX Pad support is another cool feature that enhances the Desktop Experience Samsung introduced on last year’s flagship Galaxy phones
  • On the whole, while outside of the display, the S9+ isn’t a class leader in any category, but it’s good enough in all of them that the whole package makes for a great flagship phone - it will compete with the Pixel 2/XL and the iPhone X for the title of the best smartphone - which one of these 3 you might choose will depend on what specific things you value
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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)
  • 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
  • Fragile glass front and back means you should buy a case day 1
  • The new face-unlock tool is not particularly secure (it might have been better for Samsung to build out a more refined version before rushing in to compete with the similar feature on the iPhone X)
  • The 3D avatar software is again not that well executed - the AR Emojis track your expressions poorly and need far more customization options
  • There’s also still no compelling use case for Bixby, Samsung's AI agent (though of course you have no compulsion to use it, and can instead keep using the Google Assistant)
  • While the camera is great generally, it can sometime make low-light photos look blurry and lack detail - even though brightness levels is excellent and noise is minimal - so its sometimes a double edged sword
  • Battery life is good, but not exceptional - some of the competition is ahead here
  • Among the two S9 variants themselves (standard, and plus), a lot of people might prefer the Galaxy S9, as it's a little easier to handle - the incremental improvements in the S9+ on the other hand (even bigger screen, more RAM, and a secondary rear camera) are arguably not that significant
  • Everything considered, S8 owners can skip the upgrade - the S9+ is excellent all-round, and incrementally better - but it's not a monumental change from the S8
  • Apart from the iPhone X and the Pixel 2/XL, the S9+ will also face tough competition now from lower priced flagships like the OnePlus 5T, which are almost as good on most of the important counts
  • The S9+ will also face direct competition from Samsung's Galaxy Note 8, which is pretty similar in many of the meaningful ways, but might come at a lower price
