When I show people the Oppo’s new smartphone Find X3 Pro, the reaction is a little bit like marmite, you love it, or you hate it, but there’s also more than a passing resemblance between Find X3 and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, mostly in silver color.
The rear camera’s structure also has a resemblance with iPhone 12 Pro Max. Oppo has mirrored the camera module and then kind of melted the edges around it or what it looks like, but in a world of big bulky phones with sticky-outy camera bumps, something refined and a little bit grown-up about the Oppo Fine X3 Pro.
It‘s using Gorilla Glass 5 rather than the latest Victus, which protects its rivals. We’re also not getting 8k video, which is odd because the Qualcomm SM8350 Snapdragon 888 (5 nm) does support it, plus the selfie video around the front tops out at 1080p.
Oppo has also downgraded the zoom from its last year’s Find X2 Pro; the 5 times optical is now 2 times optical, although to be fair, most people prefer nearer range zoom. Still, for this kind of price range in Pakistan, we must look at what Samsung and Huawei are doing; also, this isn’t something I expected.
Oppo says that they’ll only support this with android and security updates for two years, which isn’t a lot when most big brands now are offering at least three.
But it’s not all bad news, and actually, one of the surprising highlights for me of Find X3 Pro is the battery life of 4500 mAh. I’ve just finished filming a big battery rundown test which includes a couple of phones; it came out they were neck and neck, and in my real-world experience, by 9 pm, I still have about 35% of my power left.
Of course, with the 65-watt super-fast charging, and from 0 to 100% it’ll save the file in a very awkward to use Heif file format takes just 30 minutes, plus we’re also getting reasonably fast 15-watt wireless charging, which we didn’t get on last year’s phone Oppo Find X2 pro.
It’s also bright, peaking at nits with HDR it’s an LTPO panel which means we get an adaptive refresh rate that can dynamically adjust between 5 and 120 hertz depending on what’s on the screen and the 1 billion colors you get with a 10-bit display so you can snap a photo in 10-bit. it’ll save the file in a very difficult-to-use Heif file format.
Then you can view it back on the screen with the entire 1 billion colors compared to the usual 16 million you get with an 8-bit screen, so it’s technically imposing, and of course, looking at videos and photos or even watching movies on this, it seems incredible.
Although, I don’t think this feature alone would be enough to convince me to upgrade as I say that the Heif file format is tough to work with. Don’t expect to share or edit them as quickly as a regular old Jpeg, and to be honest, I’m hard-pressed to notice any difference that I can see at least between an 8-bit & 10-bit picture that I’ve to shoot on the phone. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that the screen is stunning to look at 10-bit.
The Oppo is just lovely to use and I think overall their software has come a long way in the last few years although it’s still not relatively as lightweight or slick as say Oneplus is Oxygen OS but it’s not far behind okay let’s talk about this camera because while the microscope with the ring light around it is funny what’s actually more helpful is the fact that both the main and the ultra-wide lens use the exact same 50-megapixel camera the exact same sensor albeit with a slightly different aperture but the result is where you’d generally accept that ultra-wide shots don’t look quite as good as ones taken with the primary camera they look just as good as each other detail colors white balance.
So switching lenses, while you’re filming, feels more seamless or if you’re taking an ultra-wide photo because you want the wider field of view you’re not sacrificing quality which I think is a really smart move and I’d love to see this set up on more phones however the telephoto lens feels like a bit of an afterthought we’re getting a 2-times optical zoom with five times hybrid.
So, it does struggle a long-distance, although up close it fares better, I still had a few issues with some photos lacking in detail, so the overall quality is really.
Sometimes a little bit off, some photos looked far too saturated, and also in low light, the white balance and a couple of shots completely missed the mark, but most of the time, I was pretty happy. Around the front, we get a 32-megapixel selfie camera, photos can look a little bit flat and lacking in detail sometimes, and highlights often look overexposed, and a bit blown out. There’s room for improvement, but I still think it takes excellent selfies, so I believe it is an excellent phone with all that said.
