- Analysis by KJ David
The Oppo Find X is a premium-class smartphone that, although potentially finds itself alongside some of the best smartphones of its time, misses out on an ultra-high-end display. By this, we mean that it settles for an FHD+ definition (2340 x 1080) , instead of shooting for a Quad HD or QHD+ 1440p sharpness, which becomes more of a drawback once we get to its hardware components further down this specs-driven review. As a result, its 6.4-inch (Its actual diagonal is 6.42 inches) curved AMOLED 19.5:9 display , which, otherwise, would have been a huge pro, suffers from a sub-VR-caliber 401ppi pixel density count -- most models in this Phonerated list of VR-worthy phones offer no less than 500ppi definitions.
One thing that sets the Find X apart from most of its competition is its slide-out camera panel , making it one of the earliest smartphones to stealthily hide its cameras between its screen and battery cover. Speaking of cameras, it rocks a high-resolution dual rear cam made up of a 16- and 20-megapixel lenses , with 3D lighting and AI scene recognition headlining its photography pros and cons.
This high-caliber Oppo model also challenges the best selfie smartphones around by touting a 25-megapixel f/2.0-aperture front-facing camera whose resolution was among the highest in the smartphone world when it hit the market.
Since the Find X blusters with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 2.8GHz octa-core processor , an engine that listed it as one of the fastest phones available as of this analysis, we found its 3730mAh battery capacity rather inadequate. In comparison, several other premium-class contenders couple their power-hungry engines with at least 4000mAh batteries. That said, this 2018 flagship does feature Oppo's trademark VOOC Flash Charge technology .
Its under-the-hood pros and cons also include a whopping 8GB RAM count (Get to know other elite 8GB-RAM phones here), which only a handful of other 2018-released Androids achieve. It also comes with an Adreno 630 graphics engine and either 256GB or 128GB of storage memory . Like some of its flagship contemporaries, the Find X lacks a microSD card slot for storage expansion , but its forenamed memory cap sounds sufficient -- its luxury-class Lamborghini Edition even goes a step further, offering 512GB of memory.
Joining the mix is the Find X's gradient color combination of either Glacier Blue or Bordeaux Red accompanied by 3D glass edges, which top it off as a premium-scale phablet for tech junkies who are very meticulous when it comes to photography and performance.
