The OPPO Find X2 Pro was the least and most versatile of the first 5G flagship aircraft this year.
It's almost the best component spline available today: the SnapDragon 865 chip, 12GB of memory, a custom IMX689 camera, 65W fast charge, and the indispensable large-size linear motor and dual speakers, as well as the unique ceramic, leather rear shell.
But the most commendable is the QHD-plus resolution screen that supports a 120Hz refresh rate.
In the past week, we have made continuous tests and experiences on OPPO Find X2 Pro, and the screen is also the deepest part after we get started.
Although it is still a familiar hole-in-the-box design, you can easily detect its outstanding performance in terms of refinement, fluidity, and color as soon as you light up the screen.
After getting used to this visual improvement, it is estimated that it is difficult to return to the previous low-spec mobile phone.
120Hz refresh rate + 3K resolution, this is the best mobile phone you can buy
The screen is the most important part of a smartphone. After all, whether we are using WeChat or watching videos, our eyes will never leave this area, so it also determines the quality of the mobile phone experience.
Thanks to the positioning of Find X2 Pro itself, OPPO doesn't need to make any trade-offs and compromises on the screen this time, basically how to get better.
This allows it to have 100% P3 wide color gamut coverage, support 10bit color depth and HDR 10+, and screen brightness up to 800 nit and peak 1200 nit. The color accuracy accuracy JNCD in the default mode is also less than 0.8.
At least in terms of color accuracy and brightness, the Find X2 Pro does not have much to pick for. The evaluation of Display Mate A + also proves that its screen quality has reached the flagship level of Apple Samsung.
But the highlights of this screen don't stop there.
One is QHD + level resolution. The panel of Find X2 Pro this time uses Samsung's 6.7-inch hyperboloid AMOLED, which supports a maximum resolution of 3168 × 1440 pixels, so even if the human eye is close to the screen, the text and picture display will still be very clear, and the edges of the objects will No noticeable jaggedness.
Find X2 Pro also has an independent color temperature sensor, similar to the "original color display" on the iPhone, which can keep the screen color temperature consistent with the ambient color.
Another feature is the 120Hz refresh rate. Today, high refresh rates are no longer exclusive to gaming phones, but are becoming the new standard for Android's flagship.
If you use the 90Hz phones of the past year, or the 120Hz iPad Pro, you should also find that the improvement in the high refresh rate screen for fluency is "perceived by the naked eye". This may make more sense for the improvement of the user experience than for simply running points.
Its greatest value is actually to create a visual "fluid sense", not only to mask a part of the blunt interaction, but also to refresh dynamic content, effectively avoid the situation of canton, frame drop.
Higher touch sampling allows you to brush streams and play games more closely.
This time, the Find X2 Pro, with a 120Hz refresh rate enabled while also taking into account the QHD-plus resolution, is supposed to be the first product to support this combination in this year's 5G flagship, with a 240Hz touch sampling rate and the possibility for users to enjoy an immersive visual experience.
The video below is a 120Hz and 60Hz refresh rate screen comparison that I recorded with a slow lens. As you can see, the Find X2 Pro makes the flow of information flow smoother as it scrolls, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a distinct "stickiness."
To better take advantage of this 120Hz screen, OPPO also made some "dessert-grade" optimizations on the software side.
At the heart of this is the "MEMC Video Dynamic Frame" feature, which increases video below 30fps to 60fps or even 120fps, not only for local video, but also for online video platforms such as Aichi, Tencent Video and Netflix.
Another feature is HDR Quality Enhancement, which simply automatically converts SDR to HDR quality, giving video more vibrant colors and better dynamic range.
New shell material for a completely different feel
On the outside, the Find X2 Pro continues the features of many of OPPO's past products. For example, the bottom of the "moon moon bay" design, can allow users in a single handheld, reduce the speaker and data interface openings on the small thumb squeeze, while weakening the medium frame on the frontal vision interference.
To increase the screen share, the Find X2 Pro's screen also uses a COP encapsulation process similar to the full screen iPhone, further narrowing the width of the lower border to 2.98mm, which is currently the narrowest phone with the OPPO lower border.
Combined with the surface screen's hiding of the left and right black sides, this 6.7-inch screen has filled the entire front body as much as possible.
Having said that, the wide screen doesn't significantly increase the weight of the Find X2 Pro, which is tucked into your trouser pocket, and it doesn't make you feel down while walking.
This can also be confirmed on the data, where the Find X2 Pro version on hand weighs only about 200g, which is much lighter than the 226g of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Replaced with a glass version, the weight will be further reduced to 187g, and it appears that OPPO has put a lot of thought into the internal structure.
But the bigger changes are still in the back.
The back shell of different materials and processes is one of the hallmarks of today's high-end smartphones
In addition to the most mainstream glass, opPO has introduced two new materials for the Find X2 series: ceramics and leather, which are now relatively new.
Due to cost, these materials are often difficult to use on high-volume midrange phones, and more often exclusive to high-end machines, such as the Huawei Mate 30 Pro or earlier Xiaomi MIX2, which has used vegetarian skins and ceramic backshells.
The introduction of the new material also gives the Find X2 a completely different sense of quality than most phones. "Looking very advanced" is naturally one of the points, in the feel, ceramic warm not greasy, and the leather's unique fine texture, but also let people have a repeated impulse.
On the Find X2 Pro, you can also see a logo made of metal nameplates
You may be entangled in the scraping resistance of leather, like the iPhone's official leather case, which will leave a scratch pattern for a long time and cannot disappear, greatly affecting the back perception.
Pu eco-friendly leather is very scratch-resistant, you can rest assured that you can put together small items such as keys
Fortunately, this Find X2 series uses PU eco-friendly leather, which is not only waterproof and moisture-resistant, but also very scratch-resistant. To confirm this, I also used sharp objects such as knas and keys to rub back and forth on the back cover of the Find X2 Pro, and the test proved that there would be no trace.
Improved photo experience with custom lens
The Find X2 Pro doesn't flow with the flow, with four or five cameras of different sizes on the back of the phone, but its configuration is unmistakable.
The 48-megapixel main camera, from Sony's custom-built IMX689 sensor, boasts the largest image sensor in 48 megapixels and the largest single-pixel size.
The Find X2 Pro also features a 48-megapixel IMX586 ultra-wide-angle lens and a 13-megapixel potential telephoto lens that delivers 17-170mm focal length coverage, which is a rare "no-go" three-camera match.
The Find X2 Pro is rear-facing as a three-camera combination of 48 megapixel master, 48 megapixel ultra-wide angle, and 13 megapixel telephoto
Beyond the hardware, there are some technical improvements that you can't see, such as "omni-pixel omnidirectional focus" technology, which increases the focus success rate in dark light from 3% to 97%, and supports 12bit RAW images straight out, giving professional users more late-stage space.
As for how the actual performance is, let's take a look at the samples in each scenario.

Ultra Wide Angle Mode
With plenty of light, the Find X2 Pro's sample details are good, the colors inherit the lively and vibrant style of the previous Reno, and the small picture has an advantage in the view.

However, the Find X2 Pro's light measurement sits slightly more aggressively, such as this one compared to the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and while the Find X2 Pro will be brighter overall in a small picture, the highlighted portion of the shoe in the photo has already spilled over, affecting the details.
Find X2 Pro Night Mode Vs. iPhone 11 Pro Max
More worth mentioning the night scene, as mentioned earlier, the Find X2 Pro focus accuracy has been greatly improved, but because most of the flagship aircraft during the day focus is already very fast, it is difficult to perceive the difference, so the new technology is more to help take pictures at night.
As for the color display, the Find X2 Pro does have a more intense style than the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but the difference is not obvious when it comes to the window signs of tall buildings in the distance, as well as the nearby trees, streetlights and other details.

Ultra-wide samples have also improved this time, after all, the Find X2 Pro's ultra-wide-angle CMOS uses the IMX586, the 48-megapixel camera that was often used as the main camera last year, which also allows the Find X2 Pro's ultra-wide lens to produce very good detail.
The Find X2 Pro is powered by multi-focus segment fusion technology and super-separation algorithms to ensure stability when switching between three lenses
On telephoto, OPPO's 10x hybrid optical zoom is also upgraded to the second generation this time, although it still supports up to 60x digital zoom, but from the point of view of photo usability, 10x mode is obviously more commonly used.

Here's a 10x mixed zoom sample captured by the Find X2 Pro under a fully hand-held shot. Although its resolution, color and main camera have a certain gap, but the Find X2 Pro's long-focus capture success rate is very high, usually to capture some specific theme of the work is still very appropriate.

Dragon 865, LPDDR5 and 65W Super Flash, Top Flagship Performance
There's nothing to worry about about the performance of the Find X2 Pro. This year's flagship, with the Dragon 865 chip and 12GB of LPDDR5 memory, is the phone's performance firmly at the top of the current Android camp.
I tried out two mainstream games, Peace Elite and King's Glory, on the Find X2 Pro, which can take the quality and frame count to the highest gear and maintain a stable frame rate output during the game.
As for 12GB of memory, you can keep more background processes at the same time, rather than being killed by the system.
Coupled with support for dual-mode 5G, the Find X2 Pro is also sufficient to handle changes in the network environment over the next 2-3 years. As long as you're willing to pay for a higher package and have good 5G coverage in your city, I don't think there's any reason to refuse to use a faster, better network right now.
There are also some test data for running-point applications, which are basically the same as the other 865 flagships.
The new ColorOS 7.1 system is also one of the selling points of this Find X2 Pro. After two years, ColorOS in the design style has been basically stable, functions and interactions are also in a light direction to adjust, but also done such as application icon redrawing, art wallpaper and other details work, said it is now the "face value" of the highest custom Android system is not too much.
In addition, I particularly like the new "OPPO Relax". It's a decompression-type application that not only has built-in breathing exercises, but also contains a number of pure music and ambient white noise, perfect for working and napping.
OPPO Relax is a decompression application pre-installed in the system
In terms of battery life, considering that the Find X2 Pro is currently the only 5G phone on the market that supports QHD-plus resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, the display is up and up, and can it be carried on? This should be a concern for many users.
To test the impact of different resolutions and refresh rate modes on battery life, I selected some video applications and games to make a set of comparisons, the data is as follows:
As you can see, basically every child, QHD-/120hz mode will increase the power consumption by about 1%-3% more than the FHD-/60hz mode, and 3 hours down, the remaining power difference between the two modes is about 10%, proving that the QHD-/120hz mode still has some effect on battery life.
The 120Hz refresh rate is not suitable for all scenarios on your phone, such as watching movies and playing, which automatically reducethe interface frame rate to 60fps, which is not necessary to force a 120Hz refresh rate at this time, let alone those games that force a 30fps lock.
Both "Screen Resolution" and "Refresh Rate" are "smart switching" by default, and users can change them manually
Therefore, from the point of departure of balancing power consumption, a more practical option is to set the frame rate to "smart switching".
It's a bit like the ProMotion Adaptive Refresh on the iPad Pro, which is equivalent to having the system match the corresponding "screen refresh rate" based on the "highest fps" supported by the current app, ensuring the best visuals and taking into account the battery life.
I've tried to use Find X2 Pro in "smart switching" mode, basically operating on the system interface, browsing photos, or using information streaming apps like Weibo WeChat to get a high refresh rate experience, playing games lightly throughout the day, watching short videos, even on 5G networks, and sticking to 9-10 Hours of continuous use are still not stressful.
Looking ahead, in addition to the existing MEMC frame, OPPO will obviously continue to seek cooperation with Tencent, Aichi and other content manufacturers for targeted optimization, coupled with Samsung and other TOP5 manufacturers are also beginning to use 120Hz screen, the future high refresh rate of application scenarios will only become more, not less.
Charging with SuperVOOC, you can start to see the percentage of the last two digits of digital changes, very dynamic
Finally, the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash-filled Find X2 Pro is charged fast enough to significantly reduce the user's "anxiety" about high refresh rate screen power consumption.
For example, starting at 20%, to 90%, the Find X2 Pro takes only 22 minutes, and if it starts at 0%, to 100% full, it's only about 40 minutes (The Find X2 Pro has a battery capacity of 4260 mAh).
An efficient charging experience can also change your habit of "plugging your phone in front of bed". Once I got up and found that the Find X2 Pro's battery had dropped to 19%, and then I plugged in the VOOC, washed it in 10 minutes, and found that the phone was 52%, which was enough to support a lot of people's half-day use.
Details that are easy to ignore, but that can be minded.
The unique selling point is to persuade users to buy more expensive phones. A few years ago, our review of the "flagship" was simple and crude, and we might have felt that it would be enough to use a top-level processor, a high-resolution screen and a large-capacity storage configuration.
But now, smartphones are becoming more homogeneous in the "core configuration", and the pricing between products is more often due to the detail experience.
Although they are not as intuitive as a running number, these differences are still noticeable to most people and have an intuitive impact on the experience.
Typical use scenario for linear motors: A list of numbers is dialed when setting the alarm clock, and there will be a sense of shock similar to turning the knob
Linear motors are one of them. This opPO is equipped with a large X-axis linear motor for the Find X2 Pro, and the feedback is significantly better than the average Z-axis and rotor motor, but I appreciate the opPO's fit on the software side than the hardware specifications.
In the new ColorOS system, OPPO's software team designed auxiliary sound effects for 8 scenes, including input, calculators, compasses, setting switches, black-screen gestures, such as the crisp sound of "clicks" when you type with the default input method, and different amplitudes would make the feedback delivered to the palm more delicate.
The Find X2 Pro features a full-band stereo speaker with 0.65mm oversized amplitude
Then there's the dual speakers, which are also a "easy to ignore, but when used and then it's interesting." Especially when playing cross-screen games, because the bottom speakers tend to be blocked by the palm of the hand, more often we have to rely on the speaker of the handset to hear the soundtrack, if less this part, the game experience is obviously a big discount.
Fortunately, the Find X2 Pro didn't castrate on the dual speakers, and this time supported Dolby's Panorama to further improve the performance of the out-of-the-range music.
Finally, water resistance. The domestic phone doesnot do much IP68 waterproof and dustproof, and now the Find X2 Pro is one of them, meaning it can stay at 1.5 meters deep for 30 minutes.
The IP68 waterproof ingress will give you more peace of mind with your phone in the bath and rainy days
However, i don't really want to take the IP rating, but i want to use my phone more with peace of mind in the settings of daily water splashes, bathrooms and rainy days, and a little bit of friends can naturally bring the Find X2 Pro into the shower, put on a rock 'n' roll and add to the fun of bathing.
Do you have to buy a 5G phone without a short board? Find X2 Pro is the best choice
OPPO isn't obsessed with updating its flagship machine once a year, and it's only two years since find X was launched in 2018 that we've waited for its successor, probably because OPPO wants to do our best once.
It throws away eye-catching, but doomed structures, such as lifting and lifting camera modules, but also brings with it features such as 120Hz screens, custom cameras, and all sorts of detail features that seem "perceived" and that are important to the experience.
Judging from the results, this is not necessarily a good thing.
As a strong competitor in this year's Android flagship market, although the likes of the QHD-plus resolution screen, 120Hz refresh rate, and the Dragon 865 are not opPO's first starters, but are really willing to bring these expensive components together on one phone, Find X2 Pro Probably the best one to do this year.
OPPO Find X2 Pro Lamborghini Limited Edition
This is not the first time OPPO has hit more than 5,000 yuan of high-end price segments, but behind the high premium, itself is also OPPO in the product strength of the progress, and this will eventually be returned to the brand itself.
Smartphones are no longer OPPO's only business. When the more perfect the mobile phone, can only rely on one or two technical points to open the gap, consumers for a mobile phone evaluation system, will gradually from the past product itself, into a variety of mobile phone outside the extension category, service concerns.
Looking ahead, things like smartwatches, TWS headsets, and even AR devices have all appeared in OPPO's product line;
They are still attached to the core carrier of mobile phones, but OPPO is clearly also aiming for a wider future
