If we were to describe Oppo Find X5 in one word, it would be ‘Impressive’. It’s one of these rare phones that does great in every department. At the very least, if you are in the market looking for a phone that costs around $1075, then you should seriously consider this one. While it’s an amazing phone, it can’t be denied that its price falls on the expensive side. The phone supports 80W fast charging, which is its biggest highlight. It’s easily among the best phones on the topic of fast charging. Additionally, the phone supports 30W fast wireless and 10W reverse wireless charging.
It has a 4800 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery that lasts somewhere around 1.5 days on average use. If you’re a light user, you should get a battery backup of around two days. This is very good, all things considered. In the communication department, the device has USB Type-C 3.1, USB On-The-Go, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 5.2, dual-band Wi-Fi, and a Hotspot. The phone’s overall camera performance is great. In fact, the phone does well in low lighting conditions, which can’t be said for every premium phone out there. Oppo Find X5 has a 50 MP wide-angle, 13 MP telephoto, and 50 MP ultrawide camera on the back.
The wide-angle camera has OIS while the telephoto camera supports 2x optical zoom. Selfies and video communications are handled by the 32 MP wide-angle camera. Besides the usual camera features, Oppo Find X5 has Hasselblad Color Calibration, gyro-EIS, and 10‑bit video. While the phone can record videos up to 4K@60fps, the selfie camera is limited to 1080p@30fps. Its overall performance is buttery smooth thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G chipset. The gaming performance delivered by the Adreno 660 GPU is likewise.
However, you can get similarly priced phones that deliver slightly better performance. On the software side of things, the device runs Android 12 with ColorOS 12.1 on top. The device comes with tons of bloatware, which is disappointing since we’re talking about a premium phone here. This is among the biggest cons of Oppo Find X5. The phone has a stunning 6.55-inch with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It not only has support for HDR10+ but can also go up to 1000 nits of brightness. This means your multimedia experience will be impressive regardless of lighting conditions.
The phone has an awesome screen-to-body ratio of 89.0% and a decent PPI density of 402. In the sound department, the device has stereo speakers but not a headphone jack. In the design department, the phone is almost perfect. The reason we say it’s almost perfect is that the phone lacks any kind of IP certification. It has an aluminum frame and a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protected glass front. The glass back panel has a matte finish which does a phenomenal job of resisting fingerprints and smudges. Oppo Find X5 looks stunning, and it comes in Black, White, and Purple.
The Black variant is especially great at staying clean. The phone has an average weight of 196 grams and measures 6.31 by 2.86 by 0.34 inches. It comes in three RAM/ROM combinations, which are 8 GB/128 GB, 8 GB/256 GB, and 12 GB/256 GB. Oppo Find X5 doesn’t support an SD card. However, it can either handle two Nano-SIM cards or a Nano-SIM card with an e-SIM. Connections are expectedly supported up to 5G. When it comes to sensors, the device has an under-display fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and color spectrum.
