OPPO Find X3 Pro: The Very Best Color?

by birtanpublished on March 23, 2021

so flagship phones are fast they've been really fast and really powerful for a while now which is why it's no longer enough just to make a phone faster than last year's phone because everybody already has a fast phone so what they have to do in new flagships and typically what we see is a combination of these four things they add a new aesthetic they make it look really different really shiny they make it fold in half somehow will look better than other phones on the market the second thing

Is adding new features whether that's a magnet on the back like the iphone did or a stylus or it folds in half some kind of feature that other phones don't have third thing is you improve the cameras whether that's adding more cameras or doing things with cameras that we haven't seen before so for example the pixels did this with astrophotography and then the fourth thing which we don't see nearly as much is appeal to a wider audience put some software on there or somehow

Make it more accessible for people who otherwise are not served in the market and this year all four of those are tackled with the oppo find x3 pro so in this video we're going to talk about those four major categories and how the oppo find x3 pro actually does those and how this is a strong early contender for one of the best android phones of the year it's very fast very powerful yes but it also has an incredible aesthetic as you see right there just an absolute smooth curved glass on

The back it's all one piece and we'll talk more about that in a second it has new cameras on there two amazing camera sensors and it has that new feature i was talking about it actually has a microscope camera so we'll test it out and see what that actually does and if it's even useful so with that being said guys let's get into this video one thing i want to mention is that this is actually sponsored by oppo so special thanks to oppo for sending this phone over here and because of that it's

Technically not a normal review i'm just going to talk about the things i like with this phone and the good news is there's a lot of stuff i genuinely do like about the oppo find x3 pro so getting through those four categories the first thing we want to talk about is actually the aesthetic and this is something that oppo talked a lot about in the release as you can see on the back there's actually two colors so they have a matte blue one kind of a really cool looking color and then this

One they call black it depends where you point it because it's more of like a really high gloss kind of mirror finish but the glass on the back is just such an amazing curve to that i like how they're really accenting the camera pump rather than having like a separate like thing jutting out of the phone as a nice smooth subtle curve up there which means that you don't see this big eyesore on the back instead it feels really nice looking at it it protrudes just as far

As a lot of other phones but it doesn't look like it does because you have that illusion from that nice curve it's all one piece of glass and i mean even as apple said in the release this takes a lot of effort a lot of design work and i think it's definitely worth it looking at this phone i haven't seen phones that really look like this on top of that even though it is a mirror finish it doesn't collect quite as many fingerprints as i expected although i would recommend if you guys are not getting a case for this and you're worried about fingerprints

The blue one might be a better pick now the aesthetic on the back i think looks really nice but besides just the back the aesthetic on the front is also pretty important and this ties in with the cameras as well but the display on here is 120 hertz at quad hd plus which is great that's something that we didn't see unlike the s21 plus for example and a lot of other flagships so you have an amazing screen on here and the color on here is also incredible

So 10-bit color it's a full billion color screen so that in itself we'll talk more about later on in the video but it gives you a really nice aesthetic there now within the screen i mean i'll talk a little bit more about physically what we're dealing with here this is a 6.7 inch screen it's quad hd plus like i said and you have an in-screen fingerprint sensor on the bottom so really nice subtle you don't have any kind of like fingerprint sensor a big notch on the top nothing like that

Everything is really invisible it just works behind the scenes you have a button on the right side that is your power button nice little green accent on there and then on the left side we have our volume up and volume down button to control obviously the volume on the bottom we have our power port which is usb type-c of course you can plug in headphones or earbuds which do come in the box another big plus it comes with a charger a block and earbuds in the box for your phone to the left of that we

Have our sim tray which is actually a dual sim same on the top and on the bottom of that we have a microphone and we have our speaker on the right side now on the top we have our other microphone and that's pretty much everything you're looking at going around this phone so really nice slim design now even though it's not necessarily a lot thinner than most other phones again with that glass the curves on the back they did an excellent job making it feel lighter and

Thinner so it does feel really sleek and really slim in the hands and definitely a futuristic design obviously all right so that's category number one the aesthetics of this phone honestly i'm a big fan of the curved glass on the back i wish more phones would do that kind of style uh just to kind of blend in the camera bump more and i mean i apologize guys it is so hard to film this because it is a very reflective phone but it looks really cool in real life and that brings us into category 2 which is the cameras on this phone and this

Phone actually has four cameras so we have the wide angle the ultra wide angle the telephoto and we have a micro lens which is you might be thinking like oh another macro lens but it's not a macro lens it's not for taking pictures of bugs it's it's actually like a microscope so you zoom in like 30 to 60 x and i'll talk about that in the feature section because honestly it is a camera but that's an entire feature in itself so we'll get to that

In a second so looking at the other three lenses now it's very common to see one main lens like your wide angle lens and that's what you focus on and the other two are just kind of additional lenses you have but on this phone oppo really made it a point to emphasize that you have two main lenses so you have the ultra wide camera and the wide angle camera and both of these have the same sensor so they both have the sony imx 766 sensor on there which is an

Incredible sensor giving you 50 megapixels for the wide angle shots 50 megapixels for the ultra wide shots uh and the color consistency is incredible they're both 10-bit color so you have a full 10-bit system on here from the cameras on the back all the way to the display on the front so you can really get some amazing colors so it's hard to show you on this video exactly what the color looks like obviously because i don't know what screen you're using right now and of course youtube

Compresses videos but in real life the color on here is incredible now the other lens we have is the telephoto lens which is 13 megapixels and it's a 5x hybrid telephoto lens so looking at some photos here the wide-angle lens looks really good and this video will not do any justice to the 10-bit color but you'll see that still there's a lot of sharpness a lot of detail it looks really good and along with that either ultrawide lens is also very consistent with more grey

Color more great detail overall a really solid camera 2x zoom still has a ton of detail looks really good and then we can go into the 5x hybrid telephoto lens which still holds a lot of detail and we can even zoom in all the way up to 20x you can still see what it is but you probably won't post that on your instagram then the rear camera also does portrait mode as you can see here it did a great job of detecting the edges good skin tones good color balance and then here when i'm in a shadow

It still looks really good so overall did a good job with that the selfie portrait mode also looked really good a little bit warmer in a little bit more clarity around my head but overall really good all right so this is what it looks like in 4k 30. i'm walking around right now and the stabilization is fantastic so no matter how much i move it's just like a smooth cinematic shot and that's not with any kind of ultra stabilization mode on right now this is just the standard

Video now we can also zoom so let's zoom out and very consistent color zooming out to the ultrawide lens as we zoom in it jumps in and we can just keep zooming in all the way up to it looks like 20x zoom it's going to take us to 20x zoom we can still take it it's still really steady and honestly pretty decent a little bit of focus hunting there because we're looking at some sticks obviously but looking at this one right here

You can see it does a fantastic job let's bring it back out to the standard wide-angle lens and again this is what it sounds like when i'm holding the phone so this is obviously the rear camera and this is what it sounds like when i'm in front of the camera so there's a microphone on the back uh this is again 4k 30. this also does 4k 60 though so overall a fantastic camera very impressed with this but you guys can leave a comment let me know how the color looks the sharpness

Comment all of that in the comments below all right now we're going to see how this actually looks but this also has this other mode which is like video in video mode so they call it dual video mode you can change the shape and like i'm obviously up here in the corner and you can have two videos at once so it's kind of a cool way to vlog if you're looking to do that and show what's around you and show yourself just another tool you can do with this phone all right now this is the front facing camera which is limited to 1080p

Slightly more shaky than the rear cameras but it should get the job done you guys can leave a comment and let me know how this looks as well and that's pretty much it for the video test all right so that's the camera test but i know on youtube it's not always the easiest to see that so i'm actually going to share those all on twitter if you guys want to like see the photos and zoom in and see the details you can go check out my twitter it's at michael bryan with two ends so it's at michael bryan and i'll show you on the screen right

There also a link down in the description so you can go check out those photos after this video alright category number three is the new features on this phone and so with a lot of new phones we're seeing all kinds of new features some of them we asked for or some of them we didn't ask for but no matter what it comes to the question of would i actually use that or is that something just to sell me the phone and on this one i'll let you guys answer in a comment below but the extra edition on here is

Actually the microscope lens which personally i think is a really cool lens you can zoom all the way in up to 60x on something really really close and what you don't actually realize right away is there is a little ring light around it so even if you're setting it flat on a dark surface it has that light and you can see like anything you're looking at you're looking at like a match your skin a piece of paper you can even look at a screen on on a laptop or whatever you're looking

At and see the individual pixels so i think it's really cool when apple presented it they really talked about using this as like an educational tool for your kids or for i mean a ton of different stuff if you're walking around you want to see like a plant leaf i i think it's a really cool feature honestly personally i don't know if you're going to be like posting those photos on your instagram necessarily like it's a little bit different from the camera so that's why i kind of separated this into its own

Category because it's a really cool tool to use your phone as a microscope but it's very much different from what you normally use your cameras for so personally i think it's cool feature but leave a comment and let me know what you guys think so getting into category 4 which is how this appeals to a larger audience of people i want to first talk about the operating system so obviously it's running android but on top of that we have color os and this is a color os 11.2

In the past honestly i was not the biggest fan of color os but this year they started adding some cool features and i'm really starting to like this so on the bottom one of the first features i want to mention is the fingerprint sensor if you tap and hold and then you swipe up to uh maybe any direction you want as you can see right here you can get to a shortcut so cool way to open snapchat or camera or whatever app you want if your phone's off you can get in there

Very very quickly so that's one big plus the next thing is the customizable dark mode always on display so it shows you like the time the date notifications and you can customize that any way you want so i think that looks really cool it's nice to have that feature on there we also have game space on here which allows you to control how far you're really pushing this phone when you're playing games if you want to save battery or if you really want to push the limits and get

The best graphics and the best performance you can control all of that in game space so if anyone's playing games that's a big positive there and then another feature was debating adding but honestly i kind of like it uh it's the oppo relax which they have a bunch of different sounds and it's like white noise you can play if you're going to take a nap or if you want to just focus on something and have some white noise in the background there's a bunch of sounds you can set timers and and that just comes

Pre-installed on your phone and then of course the big feature i was talking about in the operating system is actually uh the color vision enhancement so like i said before i believe it's one in five men in about one in 200 women have a color deficiency and so on this phone they actually are able to compensate for that so the first thing is the monster 100 test so they give you a test you have to like arrange colors around and it's basically a color deficiency test and then after that

It'll help you decide how to actually set up your phone so if you're not color deficient then there's no change but if you are color deficient there's a bunch of different options to make the display look better and this is going to help people that like i said are either color blind or somehow color deficient this phone should be able to separate the two different colors that you're struggling with alright guys so that's everything i have for you with the oppo find x3 pro

First impressions i mean this is obviously a very impressive phone thanks again to oppo for sending this over and sponsoring this video if you guys are interested in checking out this phone i'll have a link in the description of course i will also continue to test this so if you guys want to see the full camera results go check out my twitter of course i'm also going to be releasing a one month later or maybe a two week later video of this after i continue to test it so if you want to see that video make

Sure you go down and click the subscribe button click the bell icon and i'll let you know when that video comes out guys leave a comment let me know what you think about the oppo find x3 pro i'm mike o'brien thanks for watching and i'll see you next time
