The OPPO Find X3 Pro 5G has been available for a few days in France. The tests on it are unanimous: it is undoubtedly one of the best smartphones of 2021. Back to a smartphone that excels in all areas.
To establish itself on the French market even though it was unknown 4 years ago, the OPPO brand has a simple strategy: to design and regularly launch excellent smartphones. OPPO has been pursuing this strategy steadily for a few years now, unveiling at the beginning of each spring the novelties of its Find X range.
True to this strategy, OPPO has just released three new smartphones: the OPPO Find X3 Lite, the OPPO Find X3 Neo and the OPPO Find X3 Pro. The latter is the flagship of the brand and the one that interests us the most. Because it concentrates all of OPPO’s know-how in new technologies. This year, the brand has focused on 3 areas: photography, screen quality and performance.
The OPPO Find X3 Pro is available for purchase today at Amazon, Fnac or Boulanger at a price of 1,149.90 euros. Two colors are available (blue and glossy black) in a single version, the one with 256 GB of storage space.
Four photo sensors and a surprise
For its Find X3 Pro, OPPO has made choices that are as radical as they are surprising. Radical, because from a design point of view, OPPO has finally dared to upset the integration of photo sensors on the shell of a smartphone. The four photo sensors are in fact directly integrated into the glass shell of the device, in a natural and fluid way, which greatly reduces the protrusion of the module.
The astonishing choices come from a technical point of view because the OPPO Find X3 Pro indeed embeds four photo sensors:
- a 50 megapixel photo sensor for the main wide-angle sensor;
- another 50 megapixel photo sensor for the ultra wide-angle sensor;
- a 13 megapixel sensor for optical zoom x2;
- a 3 megapixel sensor for the microscope mode, capable of carrying out magnifications up to a factor x60.
The first surprising choice is the two 50 megapixel sensors. It is very rare that we find two sensors so well defined on smartphones in 2021. What is felt in use: the pictures are detailed and the colors are flattering. The main sensor, in particular, is capable of prowess, whatever the light conditions.
To support these sensors from a software point of view, OPPO worked on the color rendering of the OPPO Find X3 Pro thanks to a scene optimizer. It is in fact an AI, integrated into the smartphone’s photo application, which takes care of processing the photos in order to bring out the colors of a shot as well as possible. It gives a unique cachet to photos taken with the camera. Judge for yourself with these few photos taken with the OPPO Find X3 Pro.
By night, the OPPO Find X3 Pro is also cut to perform wonders. It is able to perfectly transcribe the atmosphere that emerges when the sun is down and can considerably improve the brightness of photos thanks to its night mode.
But OPPO’s most astonishing choice on its Find X3 Pro undoubtedly comes from the integration of this 3 megapixel “microscope” sensor. The principle is simple and fun: you stick the smartphone to a surface (a sweater, a basketball, a plant) and you have a “Microcosomos-like” view displayed. A first on a smartphone.
A screen designed for everyday convenience
To pay tribute to these photos, OPPO also had to work on the screen of its smartphone. The OPPO Find X3 Pro is a large smartphone with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display. Its design is classic and efficient: the sides are slightly curved, the front camera is integrated in a discreet punch and the black borders are reduced to their bare minimum.
Everything has been thought out to promote reading comfort, therefore, especially since this screen benefits from an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz, a very high maximum brightness and a colorimetry faithful to reality, allowing to display a billion colors.
ColorOS 11.2, the interface of the OPPO Find X3 Pro also allows the user to select predefined color profiles (soft, kinematic or vibrant) or to create one by playing with the gauges of the interface in order to that the screen of the phone is perfectly to his liking.
A technical sheet ready for the future
To animate the photo sensors and the screen, the OPPO Find X3 Pro relies on a really muscular technical sheet. It is first of all one of the first smartphones of the year to have the most powerful chip currently: the Snapdragon 888. A chip which not only guarantees the OPPO Find X3 Pro a fluidity of use during many years, but which also makes it compatible with the 5G of French mobile operators.
This chip is accompanied by 12 GB of RAM but also and above all by 256 GB of internal storage space. So you will have no problem to store all your photos or videos for many years.
Finally, OPPO smartphone requires, the Find X3 Pro has SuperVOOC 2.0 charging technology. This means that with the charger delivered with the phone (which no longer do all high-end smartphones sold in 2021), it is possible to recharge the OPPO Find X3 Pro from 5 to 95% of battery in 30 minutes. , watch in hand. Better, it also offers wireless charging up to 30 watts, compatible with the brand’s charger, a rarity on today’s smartphones.
