Photo shows why new phone is incredible

Summary

The flagship Find X5 Pro is a major competitor for the title of best phone on the market, battling it out with Apple’s 13 Pro Max and Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra. The series includes the Find X5 Pro, Find X5 and Find X5 Lite.OPPO shipped me out a Find X5 Pro for review so I put it through its paces. Best feature on the Find X5 ProThe best thing about the family of phones – by a long shot – is the camera array.The Find X5 series was co-developed with Hasselblad, a Swedish manufacturer renowned for making quality and stylish cameras.The phone’s camera array is frankly incredible. The Pro has 4K ultra night video and ultra HDR photography capabilities. There’s a 50PM wide-angle camera, 50MP ultra wide-angle camera, 13MP telephoto camera and 32MP front camera. All this is powered by the MariSilicon X neural processing unit — a chip dedicated to imaging developed in-house by OPPO.Widely known across South-East Asia through its “Selfie Expert” advertisements, the OPPO can intelligently switch angles depending on whether you’re taking a selfie by yourself or with a group. Photo shows OPPO is outright winnerTech writer Ben Geskin ran an interesting experiment on Twitter. He posted four photos of the same spot using different phones — and asked people to pick the best image (it was a blind test).He was using the Oppo Find X5 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro, Galaxy S22 Ultra and Xiaomi 12 Pro — and the results were stark.The Oppo Find X5 Pro was the winner, followed by the Xiaomi 12 Pro.I took some shots of the Sydney CBD just after dusk and the results impressed me (as a point and shoot photographer).Display with a billion coloursThe phone has a billion colour bionic display.That means you get ultra-vivid colours while watching videos and gaming. It’s also just a fun phone to use. The lock screen image keeps changing to cool landscape images and the animated wallpaper looks like the remnants of a supernova. These settings can all be customised of course, but having it set as default is a plus.

I’ve been playing League of Legends: Wild Rift and it did look and play incredibly well on the Pro.I also tried out Stickman Archer and PUBG Mobile, with the high touch sampling rate making the game-play top-notch. Charging and batteryThe battery can last about 42 hours between charging on the 5000mAH dual-cell battery.I fully-charged the phone and it lasted a full two days. The battery itself will last a lot longer than other brands, with OPPO boosting to 1600 charging cycles – about double the industry standard.But it’s the charging speed that really perked my attention.The Pro supports Supervooc flash charging of up to 80W, meaning you can charge the phone from 0-50% in 12 minutes.Using the Airvooc Wireless, you can fully charge a flat phone in about 50 minutes. My overall thoughtsThe OPPO Find X5 Pro is a real contender for the best phone on the market. It’s fast, responsive and has stunning video and photo capabilities. The super-fast charging and long battery life are also highlights.It’s a buy from me.
