He Oppo Find X It has been presented today in Paris and it has done so by hitting the table. Oppo has made it very clear today that they can stop being that brand of minority smartphones that made terminals with a great design but with a mid-range performance and that can compete face to face with the highest range of the market.
Arguments do not lack to the Oppo Find X to become object of desire of many people. We have already told you in detail all the news seen in the presentation , but as a reminder to mention that this smartphone has in its 6.4 inch screen its most identifying range.
And it’s not because the screen can offer better quality than a Galaxy S9 Plus (although it’s OLED), but because it occupies the 93.8% of the frontal of the device, something that no manufacturer had achieved so far.
A design out of the ordinary
Unlike what we have seen lately in the Chinese proposals, Oppo has managed to create a smartphones that is different from most. Both Xiaomi, OnePlus and Huawei have chosen this year to make “clones” of the iPhone X, but Oppo has launched into the pool and today only the Vivo NEX is able to compete with it at the design level, and even that reaches him.
The Oppo FIND X not only offers a brutal proportion of the screen, it also has a mechanical system that hides the 3 cameras, something that the Vivo Nex does not get, and it also has a very clean design that could look like a Galaxy S10 on the front. .
In short, the design of the device is excellent, and the absence of a fingerprint reader is the only downside we could make to the device, although during the presentation we have seen that the 3D facial unlocking system works very well.
All a high range in performance and photography
The Oppo FindX does not pretend to be a beautiful smartphone with a hidden camera, but its pretensions are those of a whole flagship, and for that it incorporates the best of the best.
If you look at the table that we show you below, we see how this smartphone comes loaded up on its performance section , with a SoC Snapdragon 845 and a total of 8 GB of RAM the same that integrates the Razer Phone and that only the OnePlus 6 and the Xiaomi Mi 8 manage to match in its more powerful versions.
The same happens with the storage , which part of the 128 GB and rises to the 256 GB , although we did not find any option of 512 GB, which the other flagships of the market do not offer either.
The connectivity of the Oppo Find X does not stand out but it does not disappoint either, since thanks to the Snapdragon 845 we have the best of the best: wifi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, dual GPS, etc.
Oppo has risked its design, and not only for its screen, but is one of the few brands that today offer a system of Facial unlocking of structured light (with Apple to Xiaomi).
Oppo presumes that its system offers a very low failure rate of 1 / 1,000,000 and although the camera takes half a second to appear, has opted to dispense with a traditional fingerprint reader, which we can see in the other flagships of the market , either in the form of a touch sensor or under the screen, with the exception of Apple, which also took that decision not without a lot of controversy.
He photographic section of the Oppo Find X promises to make photos of quite quality, although perhaps in this aspect it is more than possible that it is behind the most aggressive competition.
And it’s not because the hardware is not among the best in the market, since we have double sensor , optical stabilizer and optical zoom , but the opening of the cameras is something worse than the one used by Samsung with the Galaxy S9 Plus (variable aperture from f / 1.5) and is also a bit behind what they offer the Huawei P20 Pro, the iPhone X and other flagships current, so, in the absence of extensive testing, it is possible that this Oppo Find X develops a little worse in low light environments.
To finish, we look at aspects such as battery and the OS . Regarding the latter, there is not much to talk about, since we have Android Oreo in its versions 8.0 or 8.1 depending on the model ( Oreo 8.1 in the case of Oppo Find X), so everything will depend on what we like or not the customization layer of each manufacturer.
The battery is more varied, and we see proposals ranging from 3000 mAh LG G7 to 4000 mAH Huawei P20 Pro, so the Oppo Find X remains in an excellent second position thanks to its battery 3730 mAh , although all this is the theoretical level, since in practice, software optimization has much to do with the autonomy of a device.
Is it advisable to buy the Oppo Find X?
For now it is difficult to answer this question because Oppo has not provided us with its price in Spain, but the Latest information points to 1000 euros , so it does not seem to be a particularly cheap smartphone.
Being fair we must say that both Apple and Samsung have offered devices of that price, and that the Oppo Find X offers the same as them and something else, although it is also slightly behind in screen quality and photography, so in the end everything depends on a question of criteria.
If we look for design above all and see how our friends are hallucinating when making a selfie, the Oppo Find X is our phone if we get used to unlocking it with the face only; if on the contrary we miss the fingerprint sensor or we want a very premium photographic smartphone, maybe the Galaxy S9 Plus and the Huawei P20 Pro be better options.
And if we look for a more moderate price, it is convenient to take a look at the Xiaomi Mi 8 and the OnePlus 6 , two phones that innovate less but also offer much more at a more moderate price, although discounts on the price of Huawei and Samsung increasingly make things more difficult.
We end by reminding you as always that we have a mobile comparator specific so that you can analyze in more detail all the smartphones you want.
