The ever-competitive market of the smartphone has been struggling nowadays to introduce handsets with unique features and designs. In this time, the reputed Chinese brand, OPPO, has come up with a flagship device OPPO Find X3 Pro. This device was released in the international market on 19th March 2021. Ranging from its features to quality, the phone is undoubtedly one of the top innovations from the company. If you are interested in the phone, here is what you want to know about it.
Full-Review of OPPO Find X3 Pro
In terms of style, the OPPO Find X3 Pro offers a one-of-a-kind look and feel to the users. It has a distinct appearance and gives off a "Pro" vibe. The phone comes in Gloss Black, White, Blue, Cosmic Mocha, and Mars Edition colors.
It's a big phone with a weight of 193g, an 8.9mm thickness, and dimensions of 163.6 x 74 x 8.3mm. The various sensors are located at the phone's bottom, while on the upper right corner of its back are four cameras. The primary frame is constructed of aluminum. However, OPPO has put Gorilla Glass-5 on display for protection.
Unlike other high-end phones, which are slabs of the protective glass with camera lenses jutting uncomfortably from one corner, OPPO has curled the glass itself to place the lenses where they should sit, perfectly integrating the entire module into the phone's rear panel.
All the other regular features like a type-C USB port, dual sim card holder, necessary buttons, the loudspeaker will be there. To mark the odd, the phone has no 3.5mm audio jack, and the fingerprint is an optical sensor placed on the bottom of the phone.
The Big Screen
The OPPO Find X3 Pro is blessed with a curved 6.7" AMOLED panel with a higher refresh rate that goes up to 120Hz. The display has a QHD+ resolution and supports 10-bit color depth.
OPPO wants to emphasize the latter feature as the Find X3 Pro can show over 1 billion colors. The phone also has a 10-bit panel, which is termed a 10-bit full-path CMS (Colour Management System).
That is an attractive way of expressing that the camera system like the display is capable of similar 10-bit color photography, and the phone can encode, store, and decode the resulting images in the same quality color.
The Backside Lenses
The phone sports four cameras on its rear, including a 50MP primary camera, a 50MP ultra-wide, a 13MP telephoto, and a 3MP microlens which has the ability to zoom in similar to a microscope.
Both the primary and ultra-wide cameras use the same 50MP sensor, which is quite rare. This feature attests that the photos captured by these cameras are extremely comparable but from different perspectives. Images taken in good lighting are sharp, color-balanced, and have a wide dynamic range. Users can capture 4k videos at 60 frames per second rate with these lenses.
The macro camera allows users to catch the details such as individual fibers of cloth that they can't see with their naked eyes. They can get some amazing photos of the tiny subjects applying a little patience. Not something is commonly seen frequently, but the macro lens is surely entertaining.
The Front Lens
The selfie camera performs better in terms of details and skin textures. However, the sensor has some exposure issues, with backgrounds frequently looking too dark or too bright.
When contrasted to the primary sensor, this blur out the colors. The inability to use portrait mode and HDR at the same time exacerbates the HDR problem. HDR implementation may appear excessive. The video recording capacity of this lens is 1080p at 20 frames per second rate.
Performance, UI and Software
The OPPO Find X3 Pro is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, which is the fastest CPU available for Android phones at the time of its introduction, offering high-performance speeds and battery improvements. This phone has gained a multi-core score of 3257 on the Geek bench 5 benchmark test, which places it towards the top of the pack.
Find X3 Pro is provided with 12GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage capacity. Here the users can enjoy UFS 3.1 data transfer technology.
The OPPO Find X3 can deliver satisfactory performance while running gaming software, owing to its robust processor, powerful RAM, as well as fascinating display. OPPO's Game Space mode provides extra support muting alerts and optimizing processing while users are gaming.
The phone has used the latest Android 11 based ColorOS letting users have much more customization facilities. They can also manage app functionalities and ads.
Battery and Charging
The OPPO Find X3 Pro's 4,500mAh battery felt adequate in use. The phone can last a day with light and medium use. With intensive use, such as a lot of gaming and video streaming, the chance of lasting a full day. Regardless of how little you use it, it is doubtful that the phone will survive two full days.
With this device, you will get a 65W fast charging adapter. Certainly, this feature is a major flagship endeavor. With this ability, the phone takes around 40 minutes to be fully charged from an empty state. However, the specialized devices may get charged even quicker.
The Find X3 Pro is still officially unavailable in Bangladesh. However, the phone has been released in the UK. If converted, the price for the 12GB RAM and 256GB ROM variant will be around BDT 1,28,580. The conversion rate here is GBP 1 = 117.04 BDT.
Altogether, the OPPO Find X3 Pro is capable of delivering a nice experience being a high-performing device.
The display of this latest OPPO phone is fantastic. Its construction is excellent. It features the most powerful CPU available in an Android phone, with lengthy, satisfying battery life and lightning-fast charging. The camera is also decent, although the absence of a genuinely good zoom camera is a letdown considering the phone costs.
Find X3 Pro provides software support for only two years. However, it might still feel like it is overpriced for what it delivers.
