OPPO Find X review
3D Stealth Camera
Our OPPO Find X review finds a pretty cool smartphone that has plenty to offer those looking for a wow-experience. The most obvious wow moment comes when you want to unlock the phone or take a photo, with the automatic pop-up camera. That said, there are plenty more wow moments and you can read on to discover them all.
Panoramic Arc Screen
The 6.4” AMOLED Panoramic Arc Screen is one of the most expansive on the market and it fills the front of the phone with a 93.8% screen-to-body ratio. There are no holes visible on the screen and the panoramic view is nicely detailed with a resolution of 2,340x 1,080 pixels.
Keep up to Date
Fill in the form and be the first to know when the OPPO Find X is released.
The display and the back face are made from Corning Gorilla Glass 5. A gradient colour effect is delightfully showy and you can opt for Glacier Blue or Bordeaux Red. The fact that this phone has a slide mechanism doesn’t bulk out the phone at 9.6mm thick. We also have to give kudos to OPPO for keeping the weight really low at 157g.
New: OPPO RX17 Neo review
The OPPO Find X has a high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 8GB RAM. This amount of RAM delivers a blindingly-fast experience and you can completely appreciate this when you turn on Game Acceleration Mode.
Phone Set Up
3D Face Recognition
The OPPO Find X is the first Android phone to use 3D Structured Light Technology. This tech includes a dot projector that measures 15,000 facial dots. You can even use the 3D Face Recognition under pitch black conditions.

OPPO informs us that its face recognition feature is 20x safer than fingerprint unlocking. One point we feel we have to note here is that there is no fingerprint sensor, so if you don’t like facial recognition, then a PIN is your only other option.
The Find X is perfect for anyone who needs extra security measures. The Privacy Passcode feature lets you add another level of security.
Many Android phone manufacturers develop their own user interface to help make their phone stand out from the competition. OPPO is no different and in the case of the Find X this is ColorOS 5.1, based on the Android 8.1 operating system.
The ColorOS interface has been redesigned for the expansive Panoramic Arc Screen and colours are noticeably more vivid than before. As you prefer, you can use back, recent, and home buttons or use gestures instead, including entering split screen mode by dragging three fingers across the display.
A few of the new features that you will find on the OPPO Find X include:
- Screen Clock – This provides updates on calls, unread messages, reminders, and time, even when the screen is off
- Smart Assistant – This provides a screen to the left that has information on it such as the weather, shortcuts to functions, upcoming events, and your daily step count
- Calculator app – New scientific functions have been added
- Volume – You can now set the physical volume buttons to manage call or music volumes only
Camera & Video
Stealth 3D Cameras
The Stealth 3D Camera is really neat but aside from the automatic sliding mechanism, the camera has a very good 25MP resolution. The AI-enhanced selfie camera on the OPPO Find X lets you personalise your selfies by analysing your facial features, such as your nose and eyes.

With 3D AI Beauty Mode you can smooth out wrinkles and thin your face, with a preview in real time. Face Light 3D is another superb feature with lighting techniques that create artistic portraits.
For fun, there are new stickers and a 3D Omoji function. Here you can turn yourself into one of ten different characters, including a dragon, hippo, and duck.
AI Scene Recognition
The AI-enhanced dual camera lets you create depth-of-field effects (blurred backgrounds) and enjoy a 2x optical zoom. The dual camera has a standard 16MP lens and a 20MP depth estimation lens.
AI Scene Recognition always gives you the best settings and recognises 800 scenes in 21 categories. There is plenty of storage space for your photos and videos with the phone’s 256GB internal memory.
The OPPO Find X has a high-capacity 3,730mAh battery, which should get you through the day without a problem. The battery is coupled up with Flash Charge, minimising the amount of time the phone spends connected to the charger.
