Oppo Find X3 Pro: A Quick Glance

Performance and Charging
The Find X3 Pro has the latest high-tech processor available for Android devices- the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 with 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage. It performs impeccably- the interface being snappy, apps are exceedingly responsive, and the games indeed fly.
In Oppo Find X3 Pro, you get a 4,500mAh battery that delivers a tad bit but still a remarkable upgrade over last year’s 4,210mAh capacity. We found that when the screen was set to its maximum QHD+ resolution and 120Hz frame rate, the phone lasted about 49 hours. We also got eight hours of screen-on time and noticed that one could easily get into the second day without charging.

Speaking of charging, this premium model comes with 65W wired charging. It matches the capacity of all its predecessors and other BBK models. Despite the high battery, you will still need a promised time of 35 minutes to go from zero to 100%.
Design and Screen
The Oppo Find X3 Pro is a marvelous device with a brilliant display. It can be considered to be a much lighter phone than its rivals Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and iPhone 12 Pro Max. While it is still big with a 6.7-inch display, but the use of curves makes it excessively comfortable to hold.
The blue version comes with a lovely matte finish on the back that is smooth to touch. Additionally, it doesn’t pick up any fingerprints. The grey model comes with a glossy back. Both the front and the back of the device are covered in Gorilla Glass 5. It also comes with a dual SIM slot on the bottom of the phone.
The refresh rate maxes out at 120Hz, but if you are selecting the phone settings, you are offered two choices- 60HZ or a variable refresh rate that varies between 10Hz and 120Hz based on what you are doing. Now, noticeably Oppo has touted widely for this device display in its colors. It comes adorned with a 1-billion-color display that is better than most of its competitors. It also demonstrates over 100% of the DCI-P3 gamut, apart from having an exemplary HDR10+.
Find X3 Pro also comes with a Full-Path Color Management System. To put a technical explanation simply, this feature makes sure the videos you shoot, stream, or the files you download don’t get compressed or tweaked excessively on their way from their source to the display.
Not everyone will appreciate this premium latest feature, but if you are someone who uses the phone for writing CPM homework help solutions or editing videos, this will be an indeed welcome addition.
Taking a completely different route than the Find X2 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra (the best camera phone in the market)- the Oppo Find X3 Pro comes with a rear camera setup. It focuses on the ultra-wide and wide performance rather than the periscope zoom camera.
Now, if you want a phone that can offer 10x, 30x, and even 100x zooming features, then you might not be satisfied. But, Oppo has a lot more focus on the ultra-wide camera which uses the same Sony IMX 766 sensor as the primary camera. Having the same kind of camera on both apart from focal lengths is extremely rare. This what makes this premium model of Oppo far exemplary for ultra-wide shots.
The zoom is taken care of by a 13MP telephoto lens the camera has, which provides buyers with a 3x optical and 5x hybrid zoom. Finally, there’s a 3MP Microlens that offers up to 60x gamification. Besides, the phone also records videos at up to 4k 60fps on the rear camera and 1080p 30fps on the front one. Now, both of them let you add a digital ‘bokeh’ effect to videos, something that not many phones let you do.
Night mode needs to be selected manually as the camera doesn’t switch in conditions, where there is a low-light setting automatically. But, in low ambient light indoor situations, night mode is impeccable.
Pricing and Availability
The Oppo Find X3 Pro will be available in stores for £1099 in the UK from April 14, 2021, for a single 12 GB RAM/256GB storage combo. It is primarily slotting in between the Galaxy S21 Plus and the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Thus, it’s definitely not an affordable flagship experience. Elsewhere, it will be available for €1149 from Mid-April in other European countries. Disappointingly, it won’t be sold in the US.
Oppo Find X3 Pro is one of the best flagships on the market right now when it comes to battery life, display, and speed, without a shadow of a doubt. It will likely remain to be the most favored choice throughout 2021.
While the camera can make your pictures more warming and sometimes a bit saturated, the whole high-tech system is hugely versatile and acquires incredible results, irrespective of the lighting conditions. Oppo might not be a well-renowned brand to everyone around the world, but the Find X3 Pro is so amazing in almost every way that it’s definitely going to put the brand name on the map. It stands apart from the herd- and for the right reasons, too!
