In addition, the Vanilla X5 uses a non-LTPO display, despite the brightness, color depth, refresh rate And the HDR capabilities are almost identical. In practice, there isn’t much difference in picture quality between the X5 and X5 Pro. Surprisingly, the Find X3 had an LTPO display last year. Therefore, it was downgraded.

Despite the difference in features, the Oppo Find X5 feels and acts like a true high-end phone. On the back, all the flagship cameras are tuned by Hasselblad and come with the company’s MariSilicon X ISP for a more enjoyable viewing experience. Improved image processing Wired and wireless fast charging at your fingertips. Build quality is solid and as we said The screen should be flawless.

Sure, it runs on the older Snapdragon 888 SoC, but that shouldn’t be a problem for most users. Additionally, this approach seems to be the norm for major flagships. The standard GT2 is just one example. We are also pleased that Oppo is offering a vanilla version with a smaller screen size. As not everyone likes those bulky shapes, we feel like the Oppo Find X5 is finding its place in the sun. Let’s take a look at how it performed in our testing.

Unboxing the Oppo Find X5

The device comes in a rather large box but has all the usual stuff. In addition to the instruction manual, Oppo includes a matching 80W charger and a USB-A to USB-C cable for data transfer and charging.

It also has a soft-touch matte silicone cover for added protection. It’s very similar to the Realme GT2/GT2 Pro, but there’s no header next to the camera module.

Design, build and ergonomics

Oppo has retained the same refined and thoughtful design language as the X3 Series, so there are no sharp corners or sharp edges, not even where the camera sits. This method seems to mask the bumps of the rear camera pretty well. The camera island has a strange shape. It’s no longer square, giving the Oppo Find X5 series a distinctive look and we love it.

The glass back has a soft-touch matte finish – it slides slightly. Leaves no fingerprints and is pleasant to the touch, so soft that the material is difficult to predict. There are almost no fingerprints or smudges. at least in the black version We have good reason to believe that white isn’t a fingerprint magnet. The page header is a little unwieldy. But it cannot be avoided. Rules you can create.

The backplate blends seamlessly into the side frames without creating unwanted ribs. It feels smooth and the same as the first bottle. slightly curved to the side It gives a feeling of thinner edges. The top and bottom edges of the screen are slightly curved. and the edges look symmetrical We’ve seen thinner bezels. But it’s not distracting.

As you walk around the sides, you’ll see holes. for antenna Including the power button on the right and the volume rocker on the left, Oppo opted for a separate button instead of the volume button. So the USB-C connector, dual SIM slots. (No microSD card slot) and the speaker mesh remains on the floor.

Oppo Find X5 says the frame is anti-fingerprint. But it’s not entirely true. hard to see But it can be seen on closer inspection. After all, it’s a metal frame with a shiny finish.

The so-called 360 degree Smart Antenna 3.0 design should be mentioned here. It’s a combination of hardware and software features that put high-quality connectivity first. No matter how you hold the phone The system will continually analyze the best set of antennas.

All in all, the Oppo Find X5 has a solid build using only high-quality materials such as Gorilla Glass Victus on the front. It doesn’t boast ceramic or eco leather on its back but the frosted glass is a nice touch, nonetheless. It comes off a little hefty at 196 grams given the 6.55-inch diagonal and it’s not the thinnest handset around at 8.7mm but those are not enough to take away the nice hand feel. In fact, some may find the weight as a plus as it contributes to the overall premium feel. We can get behind that.
