  • Premium performance

The bad

  • No NFC
  • No water resistance
  • No expandable storage

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.

Design

  • True all-screen design
  • No headphone jack
  • Camera module gathers dust easily

Camera

  • 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

Performance

  • 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

Battery life

  • Great battery life
  • USB C charging
  • Lacks wireless charging

Verdict

  • A unique take on a premium smartphone held back by its lack of core features like NFC and water resistance
