In an increasingly crowded field, the Oppo Find X2 Pro is one of the top Android phones of 2020. The Oppo Find X2 Pro is a stellar handset that in many ways is easy to recommend, especially if you’re willing to throw down serious cash for an Android phone.
As is often the case with Oppo flagship phones, the Find X2 Pro shares much in common with the latest high-end OnePlus model, due to the two brands sharing a supply chain and common ownership under a larger Chinese conglomerate.
Oppo Find X2 Pro is prohibitively expensive. Even though it’s not the priciest of the phones released this year, it comes close, and it costs a lot coming from Oppo, a name that doesn’t have nearly the same brand recognition as Apple or Samsung.
Oppo Find X2 Pro Specifications
Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Plus is probably the closest competitor to this phone. At $1,349 for the 512GB variant, the S20 Plus is similar in price to the Find X2 Pro but also has 8K video capture versus Oppo’s 4K and a significantly larger main sensor.
The same goes for the screen, which is very similar to the OnePlus 8 Pro’s. It’s a 6.7-inch 3168 x 1440 curved OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, and it’s as good as any display I’ve ever seen on a phone.
It’s punchy, accurate, and all-around gorgeous, with subtle curves, an excellent in-screen fingerprint scanner, and a small hole-punch cut out for a 32-megapixel selfie camera that proves to be minimally distracting.
The Oppo Find X2 Pro comes in two colors: black ceramic and orange leather. It’s a nice change from the original Find X, which was made of glass. Oppo says the orange variant is made of vegan leather, but the company hasn’t confirmed exactly what it’s made of. It could be synthetic leather, which is fine with me since I’m all for phone cases that are made without animal products.
The Find X2 Pro sports a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, and it’s Oppo’s most advanced screen to date, putting it right up there with the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. Even when set to the full Quad HD+ resolution, the phone can still run at 120Hz.
Most phones have a refresh rate of 60Hz, but a higher refresh rate gives graphics a smoother look and offers a more fluid user experience. The Find X2 Pro also has a 240Hz touch-sampling rate and an in-screen fingerprint reader, which works like a charm.
The Find X2 Pro no longer features 3D face unlock, which is more secure and allows you to unlock your phone in the dark. Instead, there’s a standard face unlock, which was probably done to save on costs.
The Find X2 Pro comes with three rear cameras: a massive 48-megapixel main shooter, a 48-megapixel ultrawide-angle camera, and a 13-megapixel telephoto lens. On the front, you’ll find a 32-megapixel selfie camera. Overall, the Find X2 Pro cameras take fantastic photographs and videos.
Keeping the cameras static has meant a hole in the display, which isn’t ideal, particularly when the previous generation had no such blemishes.
The Oppo Find X2 Pro doesn’t have wireless charging, but that’s not really a make or break feature, the lack of a headphone jack is hardly news at this point, and who is really going to lament the missing microSD card slot with half a terabyte of built-in UFS 3.0 storage?
The Oppo Find X2 Pro has a total of 4,260mAh worth of battery, split into two equally sized cells for faster concurrent charging. That’s a bit less than the current Galaxy of comparable size, the S20+ (4,500mAh). The Ultra packs even more juice (5,000mAh).
Overall, the Oppo Find X2 Pro got an Endurance rating of 88 hours with its display at 1440p/120Hz and 96 hours when halving the refresh rate.
