The Oppo Find X has an attractive design and clever pop-up camera mechanism, making it one of the most innovative smartphones we've seen in years. Innovation has its price, though, because it lacks other key premium smartphone features.
- Gorgeous design
- All-screen display
- Camera works well
- Premium performance
- No NFC
- No water resistance
- No expandable storage
- Many capable competitors at the same price
The Oppo Find X features innovative design and excellent battery life, but it's a weird mix of some very good features and some annoying omissions.
Oppo has long been known as a manufacturer of mostly iPhone-like Android handsets at very attractive price points. It's a strategy that has allowed the Chinese phone maker to take a significant chunk of the mid-range phone market in Australia.
However, the Oppo Find X is something different. It's Oppo's first take on a truly "premium" handset, with cutting edge specifications, an entirely new design idea and a price point to match. Where once Oppo could be criticised for copying design ideas, there's no doubt that the Oppo Find X is an entirely new and innovative phone, but it's also one with incredibly mixed performance.
- True all-screen design
- No headphone jack
- Camera module gathers dust easily
- Swipe-up camera is slow to start
- Very wide in the hand due to pop-up camera module
- Good quality camera with plenty of options
- Snapdragon 845 delivers predictably good results
- ColorOS has been toned down
- Lacks NFC
- Lacks water resistance
- No expandable memory and lower storage than international versions
- Great battery life
- USB C charging
- Lacks wireless charging
- A unique take on a premium smartphone held back by its lack of core features like NFC and water resistance
