OPPO Find X2 Pro Review

OPPO’s latest smartphone is one of their top tier products that comes with a wealth of high-end features, including a very stylish design with its “ceramic” black colouring and shimmering back case. Needless to say, style is an understatement, it’s actually quite an exquisite smartphone and while the back cameras slightly jut out, it feels good in your hands. The IP68 rating gives the phone some water and dust resistance should the unthinkable happen.

Adding to the design of this slimline phone with curved edges is a super sharp 6.7” 120Hz QHD + Ultra Vision Screen that produces exception clarity and vibrant colours thanks to its 8+2 bit technology which has access to over one billion colours that boasts a 3K (3168 x 1440) resolution.



It is powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor, has access to 512GB of storage and comes with a very healthy 12GB of RAM. As a result, it is a super responsive device for all aspects of your smartphone use from playing the latest Android games, using various apps and of course photos that all in all, created a very fast and flawless experience.

When it comes to photo quality, the OPPO Find X2 Pro has three cameras on rear (48MP+ 13MP + 48MP) plus a front facing (or selfie-camera) of 32MP. It comes with Android 10 with ColorOS 7.1 that tweaks the operating system to make it more user friendly. Add in an all-day (more like two) 4260mAh battery plus 5G, a 2-year warranty and the Find X2 Pro will definitely become your new tech friend.


Well packed from OPPO, the Find X2 Pro is indeed an impressive phone and comes with everything you need to quickly get this phone up and running, including “fast-charging” with its 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 USB-C charger that can give your phone a 40% charge in just 10 minutes and in under 40 minutes, a full-charge. While I digress here with the unboxing, the phone comes with the charger, cable, pin eject tool and even a pair of wired earphones.

Installation is very easy and you simply follow the wizard that connects to your phone network and Wi-Fi in order to set-up the phone. You’ll be up and running in just a few minutes and once powered, the tech behind this phone does create a very responsive phone. The preloaded apps include (Screen One), Calendar, Clock, Weather, Settings, Photos, Play Store, Google (Google ,Gmail, Maps, YouTube, One Drive, YT Music, Play Movies & TV, Duo, Photos). Tools (Contacts, Phone Manager, Recorder, Compass, Calculator, Clone Phone, One Tap Lock Screen, Keep Notes, OPPO Service), Phone, Messages, Chrome and Camera. The main screen can also be tweaked, including the installation of widgets.

The second screen contains Music, File Manager, Mail, Theme Store, Videos, Music Party, Soloop, Game Space, OPPO Relax, Facebook, News, Opera, OfficeSuite, Netflix and Trip.com. By swiping to the left is the Smart Assistant that allows you to have your favourite apps right at your finger tips.

A special mention should be made about the totally impressive and immersive display of the OPPO Find X2 Pro which is a 120Hz QHD+ Ultra Vision Screen display after using this phone religiously for the last few weeks. Not only is the resolution super clear (especially at 3168 x 1440) but it can swap between 60Hz and 120Hz which is great for gaming The screen has a touch sampling rate of 240Hz that adds to the responsiveness of this phone.

Add in Video Motion Entertainment which changes the frames per second from 30 (and even lower) to 60 and even 120 fps that is deal for Netflix and Amazon, including HDR that takes your videos to a new level by giving the colours depth. Another immersive feature are moving backgrounds and I had a double take when I first saw it moving. Sure, it might use a minuscule fraction of the battery and CPU but it looks totally cool and here’s a couple of screenshots (look carefully) of the background image moving.

While the phone has a large battery, we easily got at least 2-days usage from it. Although 5G will effect this at times, including some of the more advanced settings of the phone and due to COVID-19, we were a little stuck in terms of where we could test it and access to 5G. In terms of speakers the OPPO Find X2 Pro produced some excellent audio quality with good levels and even a touch of bass.


What’s a review without benchmarks? The benchmarks we used was 3DMARK and Geekbench and both apps mirrored the hype from OPPO that this is one very powerful phone and has the performance to match. With that said, the phone scores on the high-end of the spectrum and according to 3MDARK, the OPPO Find X2 Pro is 99% more powerful than most phones on the market.

Given the CPU/GPU/RAM of this smartphone, this device was designed for gaming and titles such as Asphalt 9: Legends, Call of Duty, PUBG Mobile and Dead Trigger 2 never missed a beat and played like a high-end gaming console. Adding to this was League of Legends, Final Fantasy XIII and my personal favourite, Injustice 2 that all played like a treat on this smartphone. Speaking of consoles, you can also mirror the games to your TV that really takes gaming to a whole new level of a smartphone.

When it comes to cameras, the OPPO Find X2 Pro is quite impressive for photography, even in low-lighting. Add in a 5X optical zoom with 10x hybrid and 60x digital zoom and this will give you some nice close and personal shots. It captures colours well and images are quite sharp. However like most phones, sometimes you do need to tweak or retake images in low-lighting and even so, it gives its competitors a run for their money.

There’s also an AI enhancement mode that makes the colours more dynamic and dare I say, HDR-like in appearance. The standard camera settings include night, video, photo and portrait. Further settings include Google lens, slo-mo, expert, sticker, text scanner, panorama and timelapse. The phone supports 4K video recording and with its ultra steady feature, it helps in keeping your videos quite smooth.

Final Thoughts?

Whether you’re watching Netflix, taking photos, creating videos for content creation, playing the latest games or just surfing the net, the OPPO Find X2 Pro was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Find X2 Pro is splash, water, and dust resistant, and has been tested under controlled laboratory conditions with a rating of IP68 in compliance with GB/T 4208-2017 (China)/IEC 60529 (international). Splash, water, and dust resistance may decrease as a result of normal wear. Do not charge a wet phone. Liquid damage is not covered under warranty. The IP68 rating means that the product has passed the test under the following conditions: (1) immersed in still fresh water with a depth of 1.5 meters; (2) tested for 30 minutes; (3) no more than 5°C of difference between the water temperature and product temperature.
2. By default, the screen refresh rate is changed automatically based on the specific scenario. You can choose the Auto Select, 120Hz, or 60Hz mode in Settings.
3. The 240Hz touch sampling rate applies only to some gaming scenarios. The 120Hz sampling rate is used in other scenarios.
