OPPO Find X2 review: this standard version is a bit fierce

Since the release of the Find X2 series, naturally the most concerned is the Find X2 Pro, which integrates a variety of cutting-edge hard core configurations, and once again demonstrates the Find X series' exploration of scientific and technological innovation and user experience innovation. The jointly released Find X2 is also very worthy of attention. Although it is the standard version, it still retains the core configuration of 120Hz super-sensitive screen, 65W super flash charge, and Snapdragon 865. It also differentiates the image part and passes the evaluation together. Learn about the article.

High-spec flagship screen like Find X2 Pro

The screen is the focus of the Find X2 series. This time the Find X2 standard version is also equipped with the same 120Hz super-sensitive screen as the Find X2 Pro version. For users, purchasing the standard version can also enjoy this excellent screen.

Find X2 uses a 6.7-inch curved screen for digging. The digging is located in the upper left corner of the screen. The smaller aperture fits well with the status bar. The screen adopts advanced COP packaging technology, and the bottom border width is only 2.98mm.

The curvature of the screen surface is not very aggressive. The screen curvature is 67.8 degrees. The official said that this curvature is the best balance between visual effects and feel. In actual experience, the left and right borders of Find X2 have little visual impact and the screen has a wide field of view. The daily use of the screen edge will not affect daily operations.

Find X2's screen supports 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, 3168 * 1440 resolution, 100% P3 wide color gamut, 1 billion colors, and contrast 5000000: 1. Such screen specifications are not many at present. Even in flagship phones, it is sharp.

High refresh rate + high resolution is a new trend of flagship mobile phones in 2020. Find X2 directly increases the screen refresh rate to 120Hz and can display 120 pictures per second, which is doubled compared to the ordinary 60Hz screen. It can bring smoother visual effects.

In actual experience, the improvement brought by the 120Hz screen is very obvious. The software interface on the system interface, adapted microblogs, and headlines are very smooth. This improvement will be easy to feel in daily use. As can be seen from the comparison of the above moving pictures, the sliding smoothness of Find X2 is significantly better in slow motion.

In consideration of battery life, Find X2 provides options for setting the screen refresh rate and screen resolution in the system. When smart switching is selected, the resolution and refresh rate are automatically adjusted according to the screen display content. For example, on applications that do not support 120 frames, the system will automatically select a 60Hz refresh rate, which will save power while not affecting the experience.

Of course, if you don't care about battery life, just focus on the screen effect, Find X2 also provides the option of 120Hz and QHD + turned on at the same time. For general users, it is more recommended to turn on the smart switching mode, the actual power saving effect is more obvious.

In addition to improving the refresh rate, the touch sampling rate of Find X2 has also been increased to 240Hz. The 240Hz sampling rate can bring a shorter touch response time, improve the followability of daily operations, and have a faster response speed when clicking in a competitive game.

A screen with a high refresh rate is not enough. High frame rate content is currently lacking in high refresh rate mobile phones. At present, most videos on the network are below 30 frames. Even if viewed on a 120Hz screen, it will not improve the fluency. Find X2 changed this by introducing video frame interpolation technology on high-end TVs.

Find X2 is equipped with OPPO's original O1 super-sensitive image quality engine, which supports video clear (Motion clear) technology. The video insert technology estimates the motion trajectory of each frame of the picture and makes intelligent predictions based on the relationship between the front and back pictures. A new picture is inserted between the original frames, which can increase the number of video frames and make the picture smoother.

Find X2's O1 super-sensing image quality engine provides 60 and 120 frame interpolation effects. 60 frames is more suitable for daily video. 120Hz can be used for high-speed sports scenes such as sports events. At present, the video frame insertion function has been adapted to mainstream platforms such as Tencent Video, Tencent Sports, iQiyi, Youku and so on.

As can be seen from the real comparison chart above, after the Find X2's video frame interpolation function is turned on, the characters in motion are clearer, the smear phenomenon is greatly reduced, and there will be a smoother visual experience. Especially for sports events, the smoothness of the video after inserting frames is obviously improved.

The O1 super-sensing image quality engine also supports hardware-level SDR to HDR, which can enhance the dynamic range of ordinary video in real time and enhance the detail of the picture layer. At present, this function has been adapted to Tencent Video, iQiyi, Youku and other video platforms. And other short video applications.

Video frame insertion, SDR to HDR picture quality enhancement, these are all things that users can enjoy in daily use. Just turn on the "O1 Super Sensitive Picture Quality Engine" option, without other complicated operations.

It is worth mentioning that the Find X2 also has a very good performance in terms of screen color. Supporting 1 billion colors + 100% DCI-P3 color gamut can make the color performance of Find X2 more realistic and natural. Each screen is color calibrated before leaving the factory, which can bring more accurate color display. The highest JNCD ≈ 0.4.

The Find X2 screen also supports ambient color adaptation, automatically adjusting the color temperature according to the current ambient light, and achieving more accurate screen color reproduction in different scenarios. In addition, ColorOS 7 will automatically learn the user's usage habits to automatically adjust the brightness, more in line with user needs.

This screen uses new E3 material, with a default maximum brightness of 500nit and a local maximum excitation brightness of 1200nit. Not only can it easily meet the use in the sun, but also improve the video effect. In addition, this screen has unexpectedly passed the HDR10 + certification.

Thinner body

The overall layout of Find X2 is very close to the Find X2 Pro version, the main difference is the rear camera module. Find X2 currently has ceramic and glass body materials, the evaluation machine for the Bibo version color, that is, glass material. Rich textures and small textures are added on the back, which is very textured.

The back of the glass material feels delicate, and the bare metal grip will not be particularly slippery. The back of the fuselage and the front screen are designed with curved surfaces, and the seams with the middle frame are handled more naturally, have better integrity, and are round and comfortable to hold. It is worth mentioning that the Find X2 Bibo version (glass body) weighs about 192g and has a thickness of about 8mm, which is thinner and lighter than the Find X2 Pro version. 5G mobile phones can do this very well.

Find X2 supports IP54 dust and water resistance, so it won't have the good waterproof performance of Find X2 Pro. The Z-axis linear motor used in Find X2 is also different from the X-axis linear motor used in the Pro version.

Find X2 is equipped with dual speakers. The volume of the upper and lower speakers is very close, and there is a certain amount of bass, which can create a better stereo. It is particularly obvious when watching videos horizontally. The daily experience of watching videos and playing games is very good. of. In addition, Find X2 headphones and charging share a Type-C interface.

New Sony IMX708 ultra wide-angle, three shots cover commonly used focal lengths

The image part is the biggest difference between Find X2 and Find X2 Pro. Find X2 is also a rear three camera, which is different in the camera hardware. The three-camera combination of 48 million main camera (IMX586) + 12 million super wide-angle (IMX708) + 13 million vertical telephoto was used for subsequent shooting.

The main camera is the Sony IMX586, which is very familiar to us. It is the main camera of most flagship phones last year. It has a 1 / 2-inch photosensitive area, a large f / 1.7 aperture, and supports OIS optical image stabilization. Regarding the adjustment of this sensor, I believe that OPPO has also accumulated a lot of experience, so the actual imaging effect need not be worried.

The 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens is worth mentioning. This is a brand new Sony IMX708 sensor. If you remember correctly, Find X2 should be the first lens. Sony IMX708 has a 1 / 2.4-inch photosensitive area, f / 2.2 aperture, and can bring a wide field of view of 120 °. This new sensor also uses a native 16: 9 ratio, which is more suitable for video shooting.

The weather is slightly overcast when shooting the material, this kind of scene tests the imaging ability even more. In this kind of scene, the real proofs of Find X2 can still maintain a relatively good sharpness, zoom in and have rich texture details. The overall color of the photo is more realistic, and it will not be particularly strong, the white balance is more accurate, and it looks very comfortable.

If you want to please the eye-catching photos, you can click on the colorful AI function on the camera interface, and the system will optimize the color of the photos according to different scenes.

Default mode ↑

Open colorful AI ↑

From the proofs above, you can see that the overall color saturation is higher after the colorful AI is turned on. In addition to the color style becoming more vivid, the overall tone of the proof will also change slightly, and there will be a feeling of adding a filter. However, the overall color optimization process is more natural, and there will be no obvious saturation.

The ultra wide-angle mode can bring a wider field of vision, and it will be more imposing when shooting buildings. Because the Find X2 ultra-wide-angle lens has a 16: 9 ratio, the system will automatically crop to a 4: 3 ratio when taking photos, which has little effect on the overall performance of the proofs. In the default setting, the super wide-angle real photo proofs can be enlarged to see the details. If you want to make full use of this sensor, you can also set the photo format to 16: 9.

Find X2's ultra-wide-angle lens is also very good in imaging quality, the color is close to the main camera, and the picture purity is higher. The ultra-wide-angle lens also handles the distortion of the picture very well. You can see that the edges of the picture are natural and retain rich details.

Macro mode ↑

Macro shooting can also be achieved with the Find X2's ultra-wide-angle lens. Switching the phone closer to the subject will automatically switch to macro mode, which is very convenient to use and eliminates the trouble of manual switching. In macro mode, the mobile phone is close to the object and can be clearly imaged. It can capture different details and beautiful scenes.

Find X2 can provide relatively complete focal length coverage through the combination of main camera + ultra wide angle + vertical telephoto three-shot combination, which can support 5x hybrid optical zoom and up to 20x digital zoom. Ultra wide-angle lenses can achieve ultra-wide-angle and macro shooting. Covers the commonly used focal length.

Although the zoom performance of Find X2 is not as powerful as the Pro version, the actual zoom experience is also very good. More commonly used zooms such as 2x and 5x can have good imaging quality, which can give users more creative space. It's also more fun.

In terms of night shooting, the main camera, super wide-angle, and telephoto lenses all support Super Clear Night Scene 3.0. The system will automatically determine the current ambient light conditions and decide whether to turn on the night scene mode. Of course, users can also turn it on manually.

Super wide-angle mode ↑

Many poor-quality ultra-wide-angle lenses will have obvious disadvantages in this link, and the performance of this ultra-wide-angle sensor in Find X2 is very surprising. With the blessing of the ultra-clear night scene algorithm, the main imaging quality is naturally very good. The ultra-wide-angle lens also inherits this advantage, the picture purity is very good, the suppression of highlights is also in place, and the overall texture of the proofs is quite good.

Super wide-angle and video super dual image stabilization are more perfect

In terms of video shooting, Find X2 supports Super Vision Dual Image Stabilization. The Super Video Stabilization Pro mode with an ultra wide-angle lens can bring more stable and open video images, and it can also bring more cropping space in the later stage.

From the comparison test of the running scenes above, it can be seen that the Find X2 with the video super anti-shake Pro mode turned on is significantly better than the iPhone 11 in stability, and even if it is handheld, it can easily obtain a stable video picture.

Generally, the video shooting ratio is 16: 9, and some pixels are wasted when using ordinary 4: 3 ratio sensors to shoot video. Find X2's ultra-wide-angle lens (Sony IMX708) is a native 16: 9 ratio, which is the same as the format of video shooting. It can make full use of pixels and have better video effects.

Find X2's ultra-wide-angle lens also supports pixel aggregation technology. After four-in-one, the single pixel can reach 2.8 μm, which can effectively increase the amount of light and bring a better video night shooting experience. In addition, the ultra-wide-angle lens with Video Super Stabilization Pro not only can bring a wider field of vision, but also has better picture stability.

As can be seen from the screenshot of the real video above, the Find X2 ultra-wide-angle lens can bring a wide field of view, the colors are real and natural, and the overall video texture is excellent.

Find X2 also puts 3 radio microphones at different positions on the fuselage. It supports surround sound recording when recording video. It can automatically increase or decrease the sound of the subject following the zoom. It can also greatly reduce wind noise. effect. After recording, you can also quickly generate videos through the built-in Soloop editing software, and the entire creative process is very simple.

No need to worry about flagship performance

Find X2 is equipped with Snapdragon 865 processor, which has significantly improved CPU and GPU performance over the previous generation. With X55 baseband, it can achieve SA / NSA dual-mode 5G. Storage uses LPDDR4x memory + UFS 3.0 flash memory, these configuration combinations can bring quite good comprehensive performance.

Find X2 AnTuTu runs up to 590,000+, and its comprehensive performance is very close to the Find X2 Pro version. It is also the mainstream level of this year's flagship machine. It has no problem in daily applications and mainstream large-scale games. For the game, we selected the popular "Peace Elite" and "Honor of the King" for testing, and recorded the number of frames through the software.

"Honor of the King" game frame rate ↑

Play "Honor of the King" with full special effects without any pressure. The frame number of the whole game is around 60 frames, which is very stable.

"Peace Elite" game frame rate ↑

Games such as "Peace Elite" that have relatively high requirements for mobile phone performance can also be easily handled. Under the HDR HD + limit frame rate picture quality setting, the game can also be maintained at about 60 frames throughout the game, even when driving, fighting and other scenes. The fluency is also very stable, and there is no sudden drop of frames to affect the experience. And because it has a 240Hz screen sampling rate, clicks, drags, and other operations during the game respond very quickly.

In fact, the 60-frame game did not fully take advantage of the 120Hz screen of the Find X2 and the advantages of the Snapdragon 865. Due to the limitations of the test machine, there is no way to turn on the high frame rate mode. The subsequent adaptations of "QQ Speeder" and "New God Demon Land" will support the high frame rate mode, and the game experience in the high frame rate mode will be more outstanding.

Charge life

Find X2 is equipped with 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 super flash charging technology and adopts a series dual cell design. In terms of charging safety, it provides mobile phones with five-fold security protection from power adapters, cables, and mobile phones. The battery capacity is 4200mAh, which is a little smaller than the Pro version (4260mAh).

In the endurance part, we conducted heavy use tests for three consecutive hours, including watching high-definition videos online, flashing Weibo, vibrato, and playing games. Find X2 has a screen brightness and volume of about 50%. When the O1 super-sensitive image quality engine is turned on, the screen resolution and refresh rate are intelligently switched.

The actual endurance test results are shown in the figure above. After watching an hour of 1080P video on Tencent Video online, the power consumption is 16%, and the game consumes 23% for 1 hour. After a 3-hour endurance test, the remaining power is 41% . Of course, because the test machine is an engineering machine, subsequent optimization is more in place, and subsequent navigation performance should be improved.

In terms of charging, the battery starts to charge when the remaining 1% of the battery power is available. It can reach 23% of electricity in 5 minutes, 44% of electricity in 10 minutes, 95% of electricity in 30 minutes, and finally 37 minutes of 100% electricity. The overall charging speed is very fast.

Write at the end

Although the configuration of the Find X2 is not as extreme as the Pro version, it is also an excellent and balanced flagship machine. 120Hz ultra-sensitive screen, 65W super fast charge, Snapdragon 865 and other core highlights you can experience on the Find X2. Although the rear three cameras use different configuration combinations, they can still provide rich and comprehensive image capabilities, easily meet the big Some user needs. Find X2 is not simply reducing the configuration, but more considering the comprehensive user experience. It is an outstanding product that is not so Pro, but far higher than the mainstream standard version flagship. More importantly, the more affordable starting price of the Find X2 5499 yuan (USD $0) makes it easier for you.
