This time the Sultan will give the latest Oppo Find X review. It's exciting to talk about smartphones with full-screen features in 2018. The smartphone has a ratio screen-to-body about 80 percent and leaving a little bezel on the edges and not infrequently helped by the “bangs” to be able to get a screen that extends to the top. Until now, the bangs have a function to load the front camera and other integral components so that it cannot be ruled out to get a truly full screen design.
Reportedly, this smartphone will soon be launched in July with a price tag of around 16 million. Now with the presence of the latest Oppo Find X smartphone, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has accepted the new challenge and is competing against other manufacturers in creating increasingly innovative smartphones by hiding their cameras at the top. Sounds very unique right? Keep watching this article to find out the full review.
Oppo Find X design
Oppo Find X is the latest smartphone that is very riveting. With a gentle sloping edge, beautiful black-colored design, and the highest possible screen-to-body ratio at the moment, this smartphone will easily attract the attention of the beholder. The shape of the body feels almost similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9 when held.
The most interesting design part to discuss here is the front camera and the rear camera you won't find on the body. This is the latest innovation that distinguishes the Oppo Find X with other smartphones available on the market today. So where are the two cameras? The camera mechanism on this smartphone is quite unique because when you open an application that requires a camera, this smartphone will remove the hidden camera from the top. Well, here you might think that moving components on a smartphone is a bad idea because it might be easily damaged. The Sultan thought so.
But in fact, Oppo claims that the camera mechanism has a high durability and can go up and down up to 300 thousand times, but maybe you will use the camera very often. This is because this device also removes the fingerprint scanner and replaces it with the 3D face scanner feature. This feature uses infrared light to create a deep mapping of your face. This feature is also a sophisticated innovation but really makes the existence of the camera. Well, that way the smartphone has to take out and insert the camera every time you want to unlock the smartphone, which might make you nervous about hardware that is easily damaged. For that we still need to know more about how strong these moving components are.
This smartphone will be available in two color choices namely Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue which both colors look very beautiful to look at, even though the red model variant will look a little purplish. The color is combined with the black color in the middle which then increasingly to the edges will release the color slowly.
On the right side of the Oppo Find X you can find the power button while the volume button can be found on the left. Which is a bit different is the bottom which has a standard USB Type-C port, speakers pointing down, and a place to insert the SIM card. Oppo does not pin the headphone jack here and replace it with the SIM card holder.
Overall, the design of the Oppo Find X is very beautiful to look at and also very interesting attention. Oppo Find X can be one of the strongest nominees if there is an award about the beauty of a smartphone design.
Oppo Find X screen
In addition to the unique camera mechanism and beautiful design, the screen owned by Oppo Find X is also one of the most striking aspects. That is because almost all of the front of this smartphone is a screen with a screen-to-body ratio that reaches 93.8 percent. This figure is the highest ratio ever, and the only competitor is Vivo Nex.
The size of the screen is also fairly large with an area of 6.42 inches and an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. Then as mentioned before, the screen is curved at the edges. If you have already held a similar Samsung Galaxy cellphone then you will understand how it is used. Unfortunately, this design is usually not comfortable to use, especially when taking photos because your fingers might be able to touch the screen accidentally.
The screen is designed with AMOLED technology with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 which looks very amazing. The color it presents is also very clear and feels alive. The ability of this screen in dimming the brightness is also worth a thumbs up. That way you can feel comfortable when reading articles through this smartphone for a long time and the eyes will not easily feel tired when looking at it.
Oppo Find X performance
Armed with the latest output engine, Oppo Find X has the ability to work admirably. The use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset makes this smartphone able to eject a large amount of power to be able to run various applications. This makes this smartphone can compete with other top smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S9, OnePlus 6, and many others. In addition, this smartphone is also equipped with 8 GB of RAM memory and 256 GB of storage capacity and a battery capacity of 3,730 mAh. This will make this smartphone work very smoothly without stuttering.
External Components of Oppo Find X
It is quite surprising to learn that the Oppo Find X is not equipped with a fingerprint scanner, and its users are “forced” to use a face scanner to unlock. This might make prospective buyers feel hesitant to have this smartphone because the hidden camera mechanism that it has must always work if you want to open the lock. It might sound troublesome if the camera has to come out first every time you want to use this smartphone. But in fact the process is very fast and will make you surprised. This smartphone can take out the camera, read the face, and put it back in a very fast time.
The face scanner feature of the Oppo Find X is almost similar to that of the iPhone X where the camera uses infrared light to be able to get an in-depth mapping of the face of its owner. This makes the camera can recognize faces more accurately. Even so, it is unfortunate why Oppo has to eliminate the fingerprint scanner feature even though there is now a fingerprint scanner that is integrated with the screen like that of Vivo NEX.
This smartphone is not designed to be able to survive from water because there is no certification attached to it. Even so, a little splash of water might not be easy to damage this sophisticated smartphone. But keep in mind that water can enter easily when the smartphone is removing the camera so you still need to be careful with water.
Comes with a very large internal storage capacity of 256 GB, Oppo Find X does not include an option to be able to use a microSD card because there is no slot for it. Even though the built-in capacity is already very large, users will definitely feel more comfortable when they can choose to increase that capacity.
Oppo Find X camera
Although its position is hidden, but the camera owned by the Oppo Find X can still be proud of. At the back there are two cameras consisting of 16 MP and 20 MP which have quite good quality. Then on the front you'll find a 25 MP camera that also has quality that cannot be underestimated.
Oppo includes a portrait mode on this device and it can work impressively. Photo processing can be done quickly enough to separate objects from the background behind it. In addition, although the camera is hidden inside, it does not prevent dust from sticking.
