Oppo Find X3 Pro Review: Hitting The 1 Billion Color Renduji


[From time to time, the Find series has been OPPO’s “high-end flagship” product. After the release of the Find 7 in 2014, the OPPO Find series was absent from the flagship market for several years, until 2018 when users began to anticipate a new-look Find X. Since the launch of the first generation of Find in 2011, each generation of Find appears to be irregular, but each generation of Find has left an indelible impression, such as the aesthetic breathing light of the Find 7, the dual-track periscope structure of the Find X, and the screen image standard of the Find X2.

Now, in the second year after the release of Find X2, which is also the tenth anniversary of the release of OPPO Find series, OPPO brings the ideal work of the decade – Find X3 series. Find X3 will be equipped with a full-link color management system, in the shooting acquisition to global display class covering 1 billion color display standards, in addition to the rear dual main camera system.

When all of this mystery is cleared up, let’s see what flagship performance this Find X3 series can bring. The Find series debuted with the dual flagship Find X3 and Find X3 Pro, the Pro model performance quality is naturally top-notch, and this review we review the main Find X3 Pro.

The design of each generation of Find is the result of OPPO’s fusion of technology and technology, and the Find X3 series is no exception. This native 10bit (1 billion color) screen may be difficult to distinguish with the naked eye, but if you look at the back, you will notice that it is very different from similar products. Find X3 Pro back continuous integrated curved design, a whole piece of glass hot forging molding, in the lens protrusion part of the use of the “torus” design, slope front undulation without a splice, you can imagine that Find X3 Pro this time the process According to OPPO, more than 700 control points were arranged in the location of the lens torus in order to achieve a smooth transition of the torus slope front bump in the back design with a total of 2,000 control points.

In fact, when I showed the Find X3 Pro to my colleagues to appreciate in advance, everyone’s first feeling was dismay and amazement, “I’ve never seen this before” “This design can be” “It’s still a bit durable.” However, when you hold it in your hand, the warm and cold glass body will remind you that you are holding a flagship product, and the design should be distinctive. Looking back at the entire body of the most iconic ring-shaped mountain design and integrated design, the glass can be so integrated molding is indeed uncommon. The Find X3 Pro shape is actually very durable after the shock.

The only issue is that the plane of the ring-shaped mountain pass is not square, but a rounded vertical rectangle, which OPPO says is constrained by the stacking of four cameras on the back, and the final comprehensive consideration before finalizing the form. The mirror black colorway we received is one of many colorways of the Find X3 series, the best way to experience the Find X3 integrated back panel process, by introducing the OC0 process and coating, so that the Of course, fingerprints will inevitably stain mirror phones. If you are particularly concerned, the blue and white versions with AG process, as well as the brown plain leather model, are available.

With a rounded back, frame, and screen, the 193g phone fits comfortably in your hand and is not overly heavy. The Find X3 Pro’s body is 8.26mm thick, which is good for thickness control, including the 4500mAh battery capacity and wireless charging module inside the phone.

The front of the Find X3 Pro is a native 10bit 6.7-inch screen with a resolution of 32161440, a PPI of 525, a 120Hz refresh rate, support for 8192 levels of automatic brightness, and automatic color correction JNCD 0.4. These parameters are already the top cell phone screen standards today, and this screen has a DisplayMate A rating as a result. The OPPO Find X3 series no longer has frame rate switching settings in the screen settings, instead relying on Samsung’s LTPO panel and OPPO’s self-developed ADFR adaptive dynamic frame rate algorithm to automatically adjust the screen frame rate in different scenarios.

120Hz frame rate is cool, but in some situations, such as watching videos or movies at 30 frames per second, we don’t need a high frame rate to increase power consumption. In these scenarios, the Find X3 automatically adjusts the frame rate to extend battery life, and it does so in a senseless manner. During my time with the Find X3 Pro, I didn’t notice the frame rate switching abruptly dropping frames, and I could still feel the full-blooded 120Hz screen working hard when I was using it.

I believe that this is the technology and humanistic care that OPPO wishes to express at all times, and it is best to leave the technical algorithm to handle the problem. If you are concerned about sudden power loss, it is best to enable power saving mode, which reduces the screen frame rate cap to 60Hz. The LTPO screen of the Find X3 series can also be displayed at a minimum refresh rate of 1Hz in the subsequent OTA update.

Compared to the previous generation 8 dithering 10 color implementation, the Find X3 native 10bit screen will be more power efficient. 10bit (1.07 billion colors) native color is also a major selling point of this Find X3 series. In comparison to 8bit (16.7 million colors), 10bit (1 billion colors) color can achieve 64 times more color expressiveness and finer color transitions.

Image, Find X3 series three cameras all support 10bit color capture, the rear is responsible for the main shooting wide angle and ultra wide angle camera, the same OPPO Reno5 Pro on the highly acclaimed IMX766 sensor, effective pixels 50 million, 1/1.56″ sensing area.

The wide-angle end of the main camera supports OIS optical stabilization, 6P lens and full pixel omnidirectional focusing technology, f/1.8 aperture; the ultra-wide end rises to 7P lens, one more optical correction distortion lens, f/2.2 aperture; the lower left is a 13-megapixel 5x hybrid light variation camera, and the front is a 32-megapixel camera. All three cameras support 10bit recording, and when switching to ultra-wide angle, the color performance remains consistent.

This time, the ultra wide-angle camera in the Find X3 series includes an optically corrected distortion lens, which reduces the wide-angle viewing angle slightly in exchange for an ultra wide-angle image with less distortion and higher pixel refinement at the edges, which we believe is still a very real exchange.

We chose the ocean world as the shooting theme in the low light environment, as you can see, the 1 billion color depth record still has a good transition between light and dark, in the atmosphere of the busy scenery, OPPO Find X3 Pro can optimize the photo subject in depth, while retaining the dark details of the naked eye perception, and the red area, which is easily overexposed in the previous 8bit record, is also well controlled.

This 32-megapixel, F/2.4 aperture single camera on the front also performs well with selfie levels, prioritizing face exposure in complex light scenes with natural facial skin retouching effects. In terms of software, OPPO customized the Find X3’s photo function with two ginger film filters, ginger film number one is a slightly faded high tolerance film, ginger film number two brings a rhythmic black and white film texture, ideal for use in the circle of friends for emotive photos.

OPPO Find X3 series video is also very “professional,” not only does it support the highest 4K resolution BT2020 color gamut 10bit color depth HDR video shooting, but the shooting process can also be arbitrarily adjusted focus, shutter speed, white balance, and other parameters, adjusted to 1/15s shutter shooting, there is a strong Wang Jiawei style. These professional-grade color records and rich parameter adjustments are sure to please professional creators, while for entry-level users, OPPO’s fully automatic shooting can also be very convenient and quick to record the moment. The anti-shake feature, which has been OPPO’s main focus on the Reno series, is also present, as are AI video enhancement, sound zoom, and other features.

However, the most noticeable improvement overall, or Find X3, support 10bit screen capture and playback of this function, whether it is ultra-wide angle or telephoto support 10bit record, shoot directly after the scene to share the 10bit picture is very stunning. It’s a shame that Find X3 doesn’t support 10bit editing and saving; otherwise, with the 10bit video uploading channel of B station and Weibo that OPPO has opened, the 10bit full-link experience will be more complete. The image aspect of Find X3 Pro doesn’t stop there; OPPO also added a microscope with 60x magnification, 3 effective megapixels, and fixed focus.

You can see how the microscope is a differentiator for the OPPO Find X3 phone, but it’s also a very fun feature, especially when I was excited to zoom in on the mouse pad I’d been using for years and immediately had the idea for a new one.

Zooming in on some plant slices, hair, and gift bands reveals a microscopic world that is difficult to see with the naked eye, complete with very unusual textures. When shooting, you don’t have to worry about underexposure because a ring of lights around the camera can automatically illuminate the screen, making it easier to see the arrangement of the screen pixels. The Find X3 feels like a primary and secondary school science education device at this point, and can satisfy our desire to see the microscopic world.

Performance is one of the few differences between the two flagships of the Find X3, with the standard version equipped with Snapdragon 870, while the Pro version rightfully uses Snapdragon 888, with a maximum of 16GB of LPDDR5 and 512GB of UFS 3.0, allowing the phone to have a more fluid and rapid performance. AnTuTu score performance has outperformed 99 percent of current users, with a total score of 741,271 points, Geekbench 5 single-core 4340 points, and multi-core 13398 points. The flash memory sequential read speed is as fast as 1763MB/s, and the sequential write speed is as fast as 731MB/s.

We tested Elite Peace and Original Gods, and the OPPO Find X3 Pro always maintained a smoother picture during 30 minutes of continuous gaming. However, after 10 minutes of gameplay, the 90 fps screen of Peaceful Elite was reduced to 80 fps due to overheating. The Snapdragon 888, a SoC with a new architecture and a more dense 5nm transistor stack, has improved the CPU and GPU by 25% and 35% over the previous generation 865, respectively, which by definition should bring some smoothness, but as with all phones currently using Snapdragon 888 processors, the challenge of heat generation remains very serious.

Find X3 series with dual linear speakers and Z-axis vibration motor, moderate performance.

The power consumption, OPPO Find X3 Pro play half an hour “original god” and “peace elite” power consumption of 11% and 11%, respectively, online video half an hour power consumption of 4% OPPO tuning this LTPO screen can actively monitor the scene, reduce the frame rate to achieve the purpose of power saving, but the actual test down, even if If you don’t play games on a regular basis, the Find X3 Pro’s 4500mAh battery still supports a very long standby time. Charging for the consistent excellent 65W super flash charging, half an hour that can be filled at any time; Find series also ushered in the first wireless charging 30W Air. OPPO has introduced a new Ari wallpaper in the Find X3 series system, as well as a new rest screen display based on LTPO screen technology, based on the phone’s full-link 10bit color depth support. In terms of sound effects, OPPO commissioned Hans Zimmer to create a set of global ringtones for the Find X3 system, including alarm clock, phone opening sound, SMS and notification ringtones with a spacey feel.

In terms of software interaction and humanistic care, OPPO flash up to the window, full-screen translation, AI ID photos, and other features to reduce inefficient cell phone operations. To summarize the results, the OPPO Find X3 Pro plays a superb strength without shortcomings in screen, performance, and image, and is also the first tier of the flagship market at the moment.

The upgraded LTPO screen from the previous generation enables the Find X3 to raise the display standard while significantly lowering power consumption. The Find X3 Pro can easily handle even the most difficult purchase requirements. The Find X3 series is a decade of the OPPO Find series, even if it is slightly disappointing not to wait for the 125W super flash charging body, but it is better than the overall machine hardware balance.

There is a full link 10bit support screen, image ceiling, hardware parameters are also flagship level, and it is not difficult to predict Find X3 will have a good market performance in the 2021 flagship phone market.
