Oppo Find X2 Pro review: a shining star

This page was translated using AI and machine learning.

(Pocket-lint) - When the Oppo Find X first came into our hands in 2019, we were delighted with its mechanized pop-up camera. Sure, it was flawed in terms of future longevity due to the number of moving parts, but hey this was one exciting Feature that was seen in a phone - something that is common in the world of same old same old Cell phones became increasingly rare in telephones.

For the sequel to Find X2, seen here in pro form, the pop-up camera is dead. Long live the pinhole camera. That may not excite and excite us to the same extent, but it makes more sense in the long term and gives Oppo the opportunity to focus on an outstanding function: the screen, which is now a 120 Hz OLED panel, similar to the OnePlus 8 Per .

So is the Find X2 Pro still exciting or does it lose some of its X-Factor when it takes away its most standout feature?

design

  • Black (full ceramic back): 164.9 x 74.4 x 8.8 m; 207 g
  • Orange (vegan leather finish): 165.2 x 74.4 x 9.5 m; 200 g
  • Optical fingerprint scanner on the screen
  • IP68 water resistance
  • Two stereo speakers

The trend towards multi-colored gradient phones seems to be easing in 2020. Now everything revolves around simple elegance and the use of materials. The Find X2 Pro offers two options: a ceramic black and a vegan leather orange - the latter offers a refreshing alternative to the normal black plate.

While the ceramic model doesn't necessarily exude that material finish, the etched circular emblems on the back (you have to look very, very carefully to see them) give it a very subtle texture. The black, as pictured, we'd really call more gray in a metallic way, and it absolutely loves fingerprint smears - a bit too much, just like we said about the Oppo A5.

As mentioned above, there is no mechanized pop-up camera unit that can rise from the top of the phone. While this is a lot of fun and fun taking selfies, it also brings a new feature as a by-product: IP68 water resistance. Since there are no moving parts, it's easier for Oppo to seal the handset and make sure it's waterproof (the rules say it is kept in 1.5m of water for 30 minutes, but like many handsets, the reality is often many times longer - not that we stressed it here).

On the back of the phone is the protruding rear camera area. And boy does it stick out. Leaving this phone on a table is quite a nuisance because it wobbles so much. You may want to consider a case to make the situation better and support your obsessive-compulsive disorder. It seems to be becoming more and more common these days for cameras to be designed that way, but that's the trade-off: if you want high-performance cameras, you have to accept some shake.

Other features are on the nose when it comes to flagship expectation: there is an in-screen fingerprint scanner of the optical type; Two stereo speakers provide a loud output that doesn't appear too one-dimensional or only appears from the back of the phone. As is also typical, this also means there is no 3.5mm headphone jack or expansion of the microSD card slot - the latter is unnecessary as 256GB of storage space is standard on board this Pro device. However, it is a single SIM solution when we expected it to be a dual SIM solution.

display

  • 6.78-inch OLED display, 19.8: 9 aspect ratio, QHD + resolution (3168 x 1440)
  • 120 Hz refresh rate, 240 Hz touch sample rate (4.2 ms)
  • 800 nit brightness (1200 nit max peak)
  • HDR10 + certification

The Find X2 Pro is screen-dominant thanks to a 6.78-inch diagonal split in an elongated aspect ratio - which we think is the right choice for one-hand holding, none of that super-slim 21: 9 nonsense or that older and clunkier 16: 9 aspect, for example with the iPhone 8 Plus that is too wide.

There's little to do with the Find X2 Pro either, although Oppo doesn't come with a waterfall display like you'll find on the Vivo NEX 3. That said, the bezel is really minimal while the pinhole camera is dinky and not intrusive. Plus, Oppo didn't go for a double front camera, so it's not the bigger black bar that you see on the Huawei P40 Pro camera. It's all pretty neat and tidy.

There are also many resolutions as this panel contains more pixels than you probably really need. However, this is ideal for watching scaled down 4K streams, especially since this phone is 5G and there are no 4G-only variants on the European market. However, we couldn't test 5G on our test device (no networks nearby during the lockdown make this an issue).

It's the extra extras that this screen can do, but it's what gets the most interest. If this sounds familiar, it is because this screen is an echo of the OnePlus 8 Pro. That means a refresh rate of 120 Hz, which means double the frame rate for a super smooth playback. It has frame insertion to make videos smoother too. It's a 10-bit panel, so there's even more color. It's calibrated, supports DCI-P3 color space, high dynamic range HDR10 +, and all the good stuff.

But the thing is, a lot of it may be redundant. Having 120 Hz available doesn't mean everything will be better: not every app or game supports this refresh rate. By the end of 2019, however, the list had grown from just a handful of titles to around 175 options, so support from a developer's perspective is growing. It's also questionable whether a game can maintain this fixed frame rate - a lot fluctuates based on how much action is on the screen - and if your astute brain sees a drop from such a high rate it might be better to just keep it simple run at 60 Hz constant, knowing that it will be consistent.

It is our due diligence in pointing out that 120 Hz is not always what matters. After using this phone for many weeks, we immediately noticed the silky smoothness on the operating system's screens after leaving our previous device. You know what? We rather like the potential of 120Hz.

The other feature is the insertion of frames. Since a lot of content is recorded at 24, 25 or 30 frames per second, the refresh rate of this screen is miles slower. To counteract this, the insertion of black frames and / or frames generated from the content can give the impression of a more fluid playback. The problem is that it can make things look hyper-realistic, and that is in part the curse of many film producers for creating what is known as the "soap opera effect" - where classic cinema looks like it's in your front been turned room. You can enable or disable this processing via the O1 Ultra Vision Engine in the settings, which takes care of all processing. It's good to have the controls, although even with the controls on, we didn't notice that it adds something special.

Oppo now says that this screen is on par with Apple and Samsung thanks to DisplayMate A + certification through device-by-device calibration. We're certainly impressed with the screen, but we find the calibration confusing here: the Vivid (P3 color gamut) is actually less vibrant than the bizarre Cinematic option; while the soft (sRGB) mode is more like what we would expect from a film mode (yellow and flatter). At least some customizations are available.

While this screen may outperform itself by highly spec, this isn't really the biggest sale of all. What you really notice is how impressive the screen is when you use the phone - from brightness to color to resolution.

Not just for casual viewing, but for entertainment too, and gamers can take advantage of the higher refresh rate and double the touch response rate of 240Hz, which supposedly helps give your PUBG: Mobile an extra responsive edge. We can't feel a difference in this regard, but some may claim they can.

performance

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, 12 GB RAM (LPDDR5)
  • Qualcomm X55 5G modem (no 4G model available)
  • 4,260mAh battery capacity (Dual Cell System)
  • Software: ColorOS 7.1 over Android 10
  • SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charge at 65W
    • Full charge in 38 minutes
    • TÜV certification passed
    • No wireless charging

The behind-the-scenes performance of the Oppo Find X2 Pro is beyond question. With Qualcomm's top-notch Snapdragon processor built in 2019-2020 at the top with 12GB of RAM, this phone didn't cause any issues when we used it. Again, this is good news for gamers looking to get these titles up for maximum graphics and higher frame rates, that's for sure.

After using the phone as our own, we've seen this in action too. South Park: Phone Destroyer runs without delay, casual games are also hip, trendy, popular , while PUBG: Mobile runs silky smooth.

Then there's Oppo's ColorOS 7.1 - that's Oppo's software skin over Google's Android 10 operating system - which Oppo has further refined compared to previous iterations, with smaller icons in swipe-down shadows, ongoing support for an app drawer ( which was missing even just a year before this software version), along with additional customization warnings for notifications. We'll update our ColorOS tips and tricks with more information in the future.

While we thought this system might be annoying, it looks more and more like OnePlus' OxygenOS setup with each iteration - which we like. Perhaps that's not a surprise, given that Oppo is under the same BBK Electronics umbrella as OnePlus.

Where the Find X2 Pro really wants to make headlines is in its battery department. With a total capacity of 4,260 mAh with two cells, this phone is not only spacious, but thanks to its division into two functions, next-generation fast charging is also possible. Oppo has been promoting its SuperVOOC system for a long time, but version 2 speeds up charging to 65W. To put that into context: you can charge the battery of this phone in 38 minutes from a wall socket (the inferior one not included). It's absurdly fast. We have the European plug version which we cannot plug into a UK outlet. Therefore we could not test this function for verification.

However, given the considerable amount of technical data, the battery is really designed to be a solid daytime builder. We used the phone quite a lot each day - games and emails in the morning, messages during the day, some content in the evening - and after about 16 hours it's only 30 percent. So there's no chance to be scared of filling up, but it's not quite the extended two-day battery you might be thinking.

However, we made sure that all the settings for this check are turned on and off to see how the phone is doing. It is possible to adjust the resolution and frame rate to smart modes or downgrade to a lower resolution and 60 Hz to extend the battery life. Likewise, there are battery modes that hold more juice for longer innings. So the choice is yours. But if you choose to open up and let them tear apart, you still get good longevity.

Note: We were unable to test 5G connectivity on this device, which can further affect battery life.

Cameras

  • Triple rear view camera system:
    • Main: 48 megapixels, f / 1.7 aperture, optical image stabilization (OIS)
      • Sony IMX689, 1 / 1.4in = 1.12µm pixel
      • Four-in-one processing, 12 MP standard
      • All Pixel Omni Directional PDAF
      • 12-bit raw recordings
    • Periscope zoom: 13 MP, f / 3.0, 5x zoom (10x hybrid), OIS
    • Ultra-wide: 48 MP, f / 2.2
  • Video: Ultra Steady Video Pro digital stabilization, max. 4K
  • Punch-hole front camera: 32 megapixels

That rear camera bump sticks out so much because all the tech inside is full. Similar to the Oppo Reno 10X, the Find X2 Pro pushes itself backwards in a triple camera system with periscope zoom.

Zoom the camera

This is a 5x optical zoom to improve the distance of subjects in the distance, although Oppo would lead you to believe that it is a 10x zoom - which is not necessarily the case as it is a hybrid optical and digital method is used there to achieve that. In addition, the standard setting in the camera app is 0.5x, 1x, 2x, 5x, whereby 10x is possible by tapping, whereby only a very slow press and zoom go beyond this. Check out our gallery of zoom levels to see what results you can get.

In fact, if you go ahead, 60x is possible - but the quality will drop to absurd levels and we don't think this should be a feature (much like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra's unnecessary 100x option).

The real strength of this zoom lies in the 2x and 5x settings, in which many details are still resolved. Keep in mind that the zoom shots aren't as impressive as the main camera - especially when the light comes in. But this zoom setup can hold its own against the best of them.

Main camera

While that zoom is well and good, even though we've basically seen it before, it's the Find X2 Pro's main camera unit that is of the greatest interest to this phone. That's because it's a 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 sensor - the first time we've seen one in a phone. This is a big deal for three main reasons.

First, the scale is larger than usual, so the pixels on the sensor are larger and therefore better able to adsorb light for better quality. This pixel size of 1.2 µm is clearly positive. All you have to do is look at our footage of hot buns to see how much detail this camera can produce in daylight.

Second, it can capture 12-bit raw data, which is usually reserved for prosumer DSLR cameras and is great for post-production editing. However, this seems to be at odds with a camera phone as there is no built-in editing software according to Oppo, so you'll have to import into an editing suite on your PC.

Third, every "pixel" on the sensor surface can be used for omnidirectional phase detection autofocus, which means that the full sensor helps to achieve focus even in poor lighting conditions. That's pretty good too, although we haven't seen the more detailed focusing you find in Huawei's flagship phones come into play here - it's an experience of tapping the screen to dictate what you are want.
