OPPO has solidified its reputation in the market by offering devices that greatly appeal to budget-conscious consumers. The company mostly operated in the mid-range segment that it came out as a bit of a surprise when they finally decided to compete with the big dogs and launched the OPPO Find X. Is this device a good move for OPPO? Find out in our review.
Design and Construction
OPPO definitely pulled out all the stops when it comes to the design of the Find X as it doesn’t look like any other OPPO device’s we’ve seen in the past. One of its notable features is the 6.4-inch Panoramic Arc Screen which dominates the entire front. It has slim top and bottom bezels while screen, as well as the glass, curves towards the edges.
While most smartphones have thicker top bezels to house the earpiece and the camera, the Find X does away with this by hiding it inside the body of the phone (we’ll discuss that part in a bit). So the only thing you’ll see at the top is the tiny slit for the earpiece.
The Find X is equipped with a metallic frame which houses your usual buttons like the volume and power/lock keys.
At the bottom, we have the loudspeaker, main microphone, USB Type-C port, and dual nano-SIM card tray. While at the top is the secondary microphone.
Even at 9.6mm thick, the Find X feels really thin thanks to its tapered sides. It’s tall but the narrow footprint makes it easy to hold. The physical buttons are easily reachable as they are placed closer to the middle of the frame. But, if you want to navigate the entire screen, especially the top part, you will need the help of your other hand.
Flip it on its back and you will see the glass back with a gradient color that comes in either Bordeaux Red or Glacier Blue. It’s pretty and eye-catching as it looks it’s glowing depending on how the light touches it. Like the front glass, the sides also curves towards the edges which remind us of the design of the Samsung Galaxy S8, but sleeker.
