EARLY VERDICT

 

The Oppo Find X5 Pro doesn’t have many upgrades from its predecessor and misses some of that phone’s best features. But it’s not all bad news: there’s faster charging, a more powerful processor and some new camera modes.

FOR

  • New Hasselblad camera modes
  • Big charging upgrade

AGAINST

  • No microscope camera
  • It's fairly large to hold

The Oppo Find X5 Pro comes a year after the Find X3 Pro launched. And no, you're not going to go senile, there was no Find X4: Oppo told us that its foldable Oppo Find N technically counts as the fourth-generation device. Sure.

The phone was launched alongside a standard and Lite version: the standard model is very similar, albeit slightly smaller, and the Lite is a distinctly different (and more affordable) phone.

As far as the Pro member of Oppo's flagship lineup goes, we've seen diminishing returns every year: the Find X3 Pro brought limited upgrades over the Find X2 Pro, and now the X5 Pro doesn't have much of a difference from its predecessor. In fact, a key feature has been removed, although there are improvements in other areas.

Before the launch of Oppo Find X5 Pro at the end of February, we were testing the device. Expect a full review soon, once we've had time to fully test it and see if it's worth it or not.

NextGadgetsInfo didn't provide a release date for the Find X5 Pro, but we can make some educated guesses.

We imagine the phone will launch sometime in March alongside its siblings, the Find X5 and Find X5 Lite, possibly with pre-orders starting a week or two in advance.

As for the price, it will definitely be a high-end smartphone. In the UK it's £1049 (around $1430, AU$1690) for the 12GB RAM and 256GB storage configuration alone, slightly cheaper than the Find X3 Pro which costs £099 / AU$1699. (about $1500).

Oppo doesn't sell its phones in the US, so you won't be able to pick them up there.

Design and display

The Oppo Find X5 Pro is available in black or white, with the same rising glass back, meaning the back of the phone naturally waves towards the camera bump. The phone resembles the Find X3 Pro in this regard, and in our review of that phone, we mentioned the disappointment that the device doesn't look more like the Find X2 Pro. That must be the way business goes, though.


It's your otherwise standard "candy bar" smartphone, with the volume rocker and power button on the right edge, both of which were out of reach of our thumb when holding the device normally. There's a USB-C port but no 3.5mm headphone jack, and it's all IP68-rated.

The screen curves around the edges but it's smooth, unlike the spectacular waterfall on the X2 Pro. It's a 6.7-inch WQHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, the same as its predecessor.

There are a few improvements here, and the most intriguing is the 1000Hz touch input rate, which refers to how many times per second the screen searches for finger movement. This is mostly useful for mobile gaming, and even bespoke gaming phones usually only hit around 720Hz, so it's a surprising improvement.


There is also a maximum brightness of 1300 nits and support for HDR10+ and 10-bit color. It's a beautiful screen, and the Pro will likely prove to be one of the best movie streaming phones of the year.

Cameras and battery life

The Oppo Find X5 Pro has the same three rear cameras as its predecessor: a 50MP main, a 50MP ultra-wide, and a 13MP telephoto lens (for 2x optical zoom). However, it lacks the 3MP microscope camera of its predecessor and given how much fun that extra lens was for close-ups, its absence is felt.

These cameras are likely to have improved sensors over their X3 counterparts, but Oppo only detailed one sensor, which was on the 32MP selfie camera. It's an RGBW sensor (with extra pixels to capture white) and should make selfies a bit brighter.


There are some new camera modes here, too, which were apparently designed by Hasselblad (the companies announced a partnership that started with the Find X5 phones, and it looks like the old camera company contributed software, but not hardware, to the phone).

First off, there are tweaks to Pro mode, though it seems to be mostly on the user experience side (with a Hasselblad-looking trigger and sound) rather than new features. More interesting still, there's XPAN, which shoots like the old Hasselblad XPAN camera in grainy widescreen, and Hasselblad Master Styles, filters designed by the company based on famous photographers who use their cameras.

Oppo also offers some modes you won't find on every smartphone, like Pro Videography and Long Exposure – the company is clearly positioning it as a device for prolific smartphone photographers, not the everyday consumer.

So it's funny that zoom photography seems like an afterthought. The 13MP sensor and 2x zoom lens don't quite measure up to what similarly priced rivals get, and it seems that Oppo has focused on perfecting the main and ultrawide experience rather than responding to people's requests. who like to zoom.

Battery-wise, this is one area where the Find X Pro models let us down, and it's also something that can't be judged in a short time. The device has a 5,000mAh power pack, which is 500mAh more than the Find X3 Pros, so we'd expect to see more longevity there.


Charging speeds have seen a big boost though, with the Find X5 Pro offering 80W wired power, 50W wireless power, and 30W reverse wireless power. flagship level and we hope to recharge our phone in no time.

Performance, specs and software

One update to the Oppo Find X5 Pro that comes as no surprise is the use of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the next generation in Qualcomm's line of high-end Android processors. The latest version, Snapdragon 888, was used in the Find X3 Pro.

It's an extremely powerful chipset that's great for gaming or photo and video editing, though it's not a huge power boost from the 888. The phone is quick to navigate and use, even if we'll have to lug it full of our daily apps to see for sure. There's 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, but no expandable storage.

The software here is Android 12 with Oppo's ColorOS on top, and it's a bright and colorful UI with plenty of customization options for things like app icons, always-on display, and fingerprint sensor animations.


Android 12's main feature, Material You, hasn't made its way to Oppo phones yet, but its feature, the ability to set a launcher theme for settings icons and menus based on your desktop background screen, it's basically already present in ColorOS, so it's not a post.

The Oppo Find X5 Pro doesn't seem like much of an improvement over its predecessor. This is an iterative change with a few updates and tweaks, but no big flashy differences.


We will miss the microscope camera. Oppo's lack of interest in zoom photography is also a shame, but during our full test time, we'll have to see if we're convinced by other aspects of the camera.

Otherwise, it's the same premium phone you've seen before with a beautiful display, fast charging, and a powerful processor.
