Review smartphone OPPO Find X: sliding greetings from the future
The company OPPO is rather poorly known outside of China. Are available under this brand and now officially delivered to Russia remarkable planar magnetic headphones we audiophile brand is known, perhaps most of all. But its main business is connected with smartphones, and in China a strong position OPPO, along with Vivo, the brand occupies a place in the top three in sales. In Russia, both brands belonging to the group BBK, came almost at the same time, about a year ago and have taken very
Of course, we are more interested in the second. About the unusual flagship Vivo models NEX with retractable front camera and fingerprint scanner, located directly on the display, we already wrote. Now the time has come OPPO Find X more expensive and less fancy smartphone. He doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner, as there is no mini-Jack, but with Apple on the Parallels end. It goes without cut and copying some of the more important chips iPhone – Find X much more radical. It did not find neither front or main camera and some sensors. They’re all hidden inside the case and put forward if necessary to unlock the gadget using the system of face recognition, and applications that require access to the camera. The front panel is thus at the mercy of the screen almost entirely, a minimal frame is only on top and bottom, and the edges of the display is bent in the manner of the older model Samsung Galaxy.
Technologically, it’s one of the most interesting smartphones of this year: in addition to the retractable cameras it also supports proprietary charging SuperVOOC, which allows you to fully charge your smartphone in 35 minutes. It also has a front camera with a resolution of 25 megapixels, dual rear camera (20+16 mega pixels), OLED-display diagonal of 6.4 inches, the flagship platform Qualcomm, a number of original software solutions… and is 69 990 rubles. Whether such a harsh price for OPPO Find X? Check!

Design, ergonomics and software
At first glance the OPPO Find X do you notice anything unusual – well, another smartphone with a frameless glass enclosure. Is that line more dynamic and curved on all sides, as usually only makes Samsung. And only a couple of seconds to realize that the screen occupies the entire front panel (well, almost all – 93,8%), and on the back panel no camera, no flash.
But when you try to unlock the display, they all appear simultaneously and dotted with various sensors front block and rear dual camera and single led flash. Looks very unusual and always makes a strong impression on everyone who meets with a smartphone. I note that this extends the unit is pretty fast, but not lightning fast – it takes, according to the manufacturer, 0.6 seconds, and gadget this time pleasantly vibrates. Such are the simple tactile joy.
At the sight of a retractable module, the question immediately arises: not stuffed up dust and what happens when a smartphone falls with “openly”? At first the answer is simple – Yes, stuffed. To take pictures of the OPPO Find X in “expanded” form, it took long and hard work rubber bulb, blowing the dust from the sliding portion, and it was not until the end. On the performance of the smartphone during the two-week test is not affected, but is it time? The manufacturer promises that everything will be all right, but disclaims any dust and moisture protection that are actually for today’s flagship smartphones have long been the norm. However, mechanical parts and ingress protection are usually incompatible.
On the second question the answer from OPPO, too, is – the machine gives the team a built-in gyroscope, and in the fall, the module is removed. We only recall that to do this he requires 0.6 seconds. Whether this will be enough, so he had to go into the case together with drop pockets on jeans, for example? Unlikely. So the first questions that concern the practicality of this decision hangs in the air.
But purely visual impression OPPO Find X produces very powerful. It is not only unusual mechanical parts, but also in the performance of the body. Curved edge OLED display, almost totally devoid of frames, curved glass back, and is painted in a gradient color… Find X really looks cool, and he has no plaque coarseness that often accompanies the original decision in Chinese smartphones. This is one of the most beautiful smartphone – even pull-out module is elegant and fits in with the overall concept.
OPPO Find X is available in two colors, the ones whose names are worth it: “ruby Bordeaux” and “the Indigo sapphire”. Glass back cover is streaked red or blue, respectively, and changing the angle of view plays a variety of shades. The solution of fashion, today such things indulge in a fashion asked Huawei. In principle, it is beautiful, not reproach. But fans of boring black rigor may be disappointed by the lack of this option.
Case with two sides covered with tempered glass Gorilla Glass 5 with a good oleophobic coating, and for safekeeping included is a plastic cover with slits on both sides. Here it just looks a bit sloppy – as it is too Intrusive covers a smartphone from the bottom and is visibly over its borders.
Dimensions OPPO Find X – 156,7 × 74,2 × 9.6 mm. It is noticeably less Vivo NEX, which features the display is only 0.2 inches longer and comparable in size with P20 Pro Huawei with a 6.1-inch display. Yes, it is a large smartphone, weighing 186 grams, but it is easy to use even with the case. At least already familiar.
To a huge display at least occasionally be handled with one hand, OPPO has developed special techniques for proprietary shell ColorOS latest version 5.1. In different applications (claimed Youtube, WeChat, WhatsApp, but I met it also in MX player, for example) on the top edge of the display — or on the side depending on the orientation of the device — displays the shortcuts that allows you to block the notification, take a screenshot, record a video or reply to a message without leaving the current screen. The set of labels depends on the application. Also in the settings you can activate the gestures on the edge of a curved display: double swipe down along one edge, for example, will return to the last open app, and swiping in opposite directions from two edges activate the split screen option.

The rest of Color OS doesn’t make surprises. In the shell there is no common app menu – they’re all distributed desktops. There is the search for installed software — is shown in the leftmost screen, which are usually Google Now, and in this case their own Color OS: quick selection of apps, weather, pedometer, photos, calendar and favorite contacts. Redrawn (and not corrupted) the notification panel, providing a list of settings (with problems like unnecessary abbreviations of words), icons devoid of framework. Sheath looks good, is fast, but not stable enough: regular freezes, although the case does not come before the reboot. She also suffers from minor mistakes, like failing to reset the notification in the status bar all in one motion.
As I wrote above, OPPO Find X there is no fingerprint scanner for the safety of the user is answerable solitary facial recognition system. Lonely, but very serious – here works not only the front camera only supports IR-illumination (as in Xiaomi Mi 8, for example), but a full 3D face recognition (on your face laser projects around 15,000 points, and the scan result is compared with the template at those points in the phone memory). The manufacturer claims that this system is significantly more reliable than fingerprint – like, she makes mistakes much less – but there are no reliable studies that I have found. Anyway, a 3D detection to Find the X very fast and almost does not depend on the lighting. For speed of operation — excluding the time it takes to from the body came sliding block with sensors — Find X quite compete with the iPhone X.
Display and sound
In OPPO Find X has a curved OLED-display with a diagonal of 6.4-inch format 19:9. One would assume that this is the same matrix as the Samsung Galaxy Note9, but, first, it is hardly the Koreans would sell it for a smartphone, which was released before “laptop”, secondly, it is elementary lower resolution of 2360 × 1080 pixels. Yes, despite the huge screen, here “only” Full HD+. The pixel density of 401 ppi. If you look closely and strongly to strain your eyes, some hint of pixelation can be seen, but honestly from the evil one – the picture is smooth, to use with comfortable.
Is the mode Always-On Display that shows the time and notification icons – it also needs to be activated in the settings, by default it is off. You can configure this mode on the clock, to the night he in any way didn’t bother. Because of the Find X is OLED-matrix, at the time of the smartphone, this mode does not render almost any influence. When incoming calls or notifications, turn on colored lights on the circuit – it looks beautiful and also a couple of times caught my attention when I was sitting in the headphones and did not hear the bell.
In the display settings you can change the font size, enable blue filter, adjust the color temperature. More flexible configuration of the display impossible – and I tested it with the settings “default”.
The measured brightness level amounted to 413 CD/m2 for the OLED screen which is very good, which means that on a Sunny day to use the smartphone without any problems. With the angles of the display OPPO Find X all too well — is it here this concept is hardly applicable.
Color reproduction for mobile display in OPPO Find X is normal, just not outstanding. The color space is very close to DCI-P3, the average gamma of 2.24 is in stable behavior of the curves, the color temperature is slightly elevated with an average value of 7 700-7 800 K. the proper colors will be colder, which affects the color accuracy. The average DeltaE deviation for the extended Color Checker palette (shades of gray + a wide variety of colour shades) is 5,13 (at a rate of 3 and the reference value of 2).
In OPPO Find X not mini-Jack, and any special talents for music playback. The smartphone can do everything at a high level – then there is the EQ, and everything you need to play sound wirelessly at a high level profiles. As a result, the sound is not disappointing, but not charms. In the box with the phone there is no adapter from USB Type-C to mini-Jack, but there is style headphone EarPods – wired with the appropriate connector. Sound fine, but to me this design is not suitable, so a correct assessment can not give.
A speaker in the OPPO Find X monaural, located on the bottom of the case – its capacity is sufficient to safely watch Youtube videos without headphones, or hear the call in another room. To talk with OPPO Find X too without problems – on the screen managed to hide the earpiece, almost imperceptible.
