Oppo Find X2 Pro review: Gunning for the Galaxy S20 Ultra!

by birtanpublished on August 23, 2020

if you weren't paying attention to opal before now is the time just start because it's new find x2 Pro flagship is actually surprisingly great now some fans of the original find X may be disappointed by the move to a more

Traditional phone design here but the newly slab shaped motor free find x2 Pro is incredibly well put together for a few weeks now I've been using this phone in orange vegan leather which is effectively just fancy textured

Polycarbonate but this material does feel really nice the innie texture helps with grip which is useful in such a large phone while also making among the least finger printing devices i've used of light there is by the way also a

Ceramic backed version if you prefer something that feels a bit more conventional and the back is punctuated by a hefty camera bump and metal badge down below both of which have held it pretty well to wear and tear so far it's

A very attractive phone that's managed to combine a metal trim with an unconventional Britta material and on the inside the fine texture Pro is equally impressive it's powered by Qualcomm's top-tier snapdragon a 65

Processor with integrated 5g one with 12 gigs of RAM and 256 or 512 gigs of storage I've been using the 512 week model here this phone star attraction though is without a doubt the display it's a six point seven inch quad HD plus

OLED panel packed with proprietary oppo technology and the glorious 120 Hertz refresh rate and a high refresh rate like this will instantly ruin any other phone screen for you it's a big deal and if you're buying a flagship this year

It's a feature you're really gonna want bezels are minimal with only the slightest hint of a chin area down below and a subtle curve to the glass surface on the horizontal the new blush is the hole punch selfie camera in the top left

Corner some people will hate this but I've more or less mode by piece with this style of cutout over the past year the display is also extensively configurable from basic tweaks like white balance and color vibrance to the

Oh one ultra vision engine which can upscale Mon HDR and lower frame rate video content up to 120 Hertz with HDR the 1200 nits of people oak or brightness also makes for easy taillight visibility while the lowest brightness

Levels combined with the dark mode can help with comfortable late-night viewing in terms of battery life the extra hurts are definitely not free and if battery life is your top priority then you'll want to stick with a lower refresh rate

But the dilemma of battery life versus displacement been a source of much anxiety for me the Oppo find x2 pro packs an ample 40 to 60 milliamp hour battery on the inside but it's also a 5g phone with a fast refresh rate and a ton

Of other whiz-bang features as such I found battery life to be dependable and getting a comfortable 4 or 5 hours of screen on time across a full day of use that's perfectly fine but for heavy users this isn't gonna be a 2-day phone

That's not really such a big deal though considering the speed of oppose super voc 2.0 65 watt wired charging at a low battery level that'll get you out of the danger zone in just a few minutes as a result I've stopped really worrying

About charging overnight because I know that however low the charges in the morning I can be basically back in action in the time it takes to make a cup of coffee for a full charge from dead opal quotes 38 minutes which

Broadly matches with my experience and finally the one trade-off in this department there's no wireless charging option on offer which is somewhat disappointing when the likes of Huawei are pushing Qi

Charging to ever quicker speeds and now on to what has in the past been the Achilles heel of oppose Android phones of the software a couple years ago it was ugly glitchy and basically just bad unfortunately though none of

That applies to the latest color OS 7.1 which to my surprise I've actually really enjoyed using over the past few weeks Oh past its own distinctive visual style with green hues clean whites and

Stylized wireframe icons it's all very easy on the eyes and Clara West's core apps and UI are pleasantly animated and thanks to the speedy processor in the display the find x2 absolutely flies biometrics to are equally quick the new

Larger optical fingerprint scanner is more reliable and slightly faster than the previous generation and the same goes for the face unlock feature which unfortunately isn't as secure as the 3d scanning systems using the iPhone the

Pixel for and others I found some generally useful features in car OS though especially around multitasking a three fingers swipe easily splits the screen into multi window mode far quicker than the many taps required in

Vanilla Android and the quick shortcut bars you to pin certain chat apps like whatsapp in a kind of floating chat head thing making it far easier to hop between these apps and whatever else you might be doing in the background as with

Any highly opinionated smartphone software however there are some bugbears to note the most irritating color OS feature I've encountered is the default behavior of the status bar which doesn't show icons for all notifications as

Standard instead each app has to be manually toggled on it's a bit confusing because this is a real disconnect between the notification shade and what you see in the icon bar plus Oppo does have a pretty weak track record for

Android platform updates so don't necessarily hold your breath for a speedy Android 11 upgrade later in the year after the display the most impressive feature of this phone has to be its

Cameras along with the redesigned and much larger main sensor and a capable ultra wide option the phone features a 2nd gen 13 megapixel 5 x telephoto zoom that's good at up to 10x in hybrid zoom mode all the above hardware makes for an

Incredibly versatile camera setup even though some rivals have it beaten in sheer census size but whether using the ultra wide or primary sensor colors are consistent and accurate with ample dynamic range even in charging

Situations like shooting directly into a sunset the new main sensor in F 1.7 lens capture some really impressive macro shots – and at night there's plenty of color detail thanks to the automatic night mode that kicks into action you've

Also got the terribly named AI colour dazzle mode to detect the usual array of scenes cat sunset landscape indoors etc and tweet the colors accordingly the find x2 Pro is a competent performer in low-light – although it doesn't reach

The dizzy heights of Wally's latest p40 series with its enormous one over one point two eight inch sensor I've been impressed with most the nighttime and darker indoor shots that I've captured on the main and ultra wide cameras when

It comes to five times periscope telephoto Oppo does an admirable job in daylight and in some indoor scenes though as with most telephoto options like this quality degrades pretty quickly in nighttime scenes if you're

Unfamiliar with this kind of telephoto lens the added versatility that usable five times in 10 times zoom brings to smartphone photography is phenomenal giving you really impressive close-ups that often don't look like they were

Taken on a smartphone the five times camera also provides a great showcase for offers new video stabilization feature the new software stabilization works on all the rear cameras and as an excellent job of smoothing handheld pan

Shots and completely eliminating hand shake in most static shots the result is an almost magical level of stabilization this phone delivers in all the key areas you'd expect from a premium flagship display performance

Camera and charging speeds and it establishes OPO as a true competitor to Samsung in European markets with Huawei still struggling to build out its own software ecosystem the find x2 pro could well replace its local rival as the

Go-to android alternative to the galaxy s 24 Oppo weaknesses remain in areas like software features update cadence but none of that is enough to detract from the overall package this is an exceptional phone and

If you're inclined to spend upwards of a thousand euros on a shiny new Android handset the find x2 pro should definitely be on your shortlist that's it for now check out our full written review on android central.com and don't
