In 2020 I have already had the opportunity to test 2 phones with the name ‘Lite’, so I can say with certainty that this Oppo goes far beyond the meaning of this word. At the end of the day, the Oppo Find X2 Lite from “Lite” has very little… Being a breath of fresh air to my eyes, after so much medium and low range that passed through these hands.
Its construction and capabilities can not be considered medium or medium/low range. After all, you may not even recognize this “Chinese” brand, but if you don’t know, it’s one of the largest smartphone manufacturers on the planet.
By the way, Oppo is nothing less than the parent company of OnePlus and its Flagship Killers.
Construction and quality
First of all, there are some important starting points that characterize whether an equipment is quality or not. I’m talking about points like thickness, weight, materials used and of course, the final finishes.
In fact, these points are the main responsible for first impressions, those first touches that end up telling a good part of the story. That said, as soon as I picked up the Oppo Find X2 Lite, I was immediately quite satisfied.
The combination of its sharp rear curvature, good location of the buttons and lightness make this equipment a treat for daily use.
Editor’s Note – This equipment has an extremely ‘smooth’ finish, which appeals greatly to the touch, but has the frightening tendency to want to slip to the ground. However, the cover included in the equipment case solves this “problem” and still maintains the beauty of the equipment.
Battery and Charging
Unlike other analyses, in this equipment I decided a priori that before checking the physical capacity of the battery would first simply use it without stress.
In this way, I found that autonomy is on par with the best current equipment on the market and is not for less. After all, your 4025mAh battery was able to hover around 6~7 hours of screen before you needed to return to the charger. And my friends, if there’s a guy on this planet with strict use, it’s me.
Speaking of chargers… OPPO is the queen of fast loading!
OPPO has been almost the “mother” of creating super fast shipments since the creation of its famous VOOC Charger. Therefore, now in its version VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 this equipment charges 50% in just… 20 minutes!!!!!!
This is something that can completely change the use of your smartphone. In my case, I always used the equipment without any concern up to 10% battery. So when I had to leave the house, while getting my hair done, combing my beard and brushing my teeth, I could easily get to 60% or more of the battery, to leave without any kind of worry.
In short, without a doubt, the charging of the device is a total carelessness with this charger. However, if you like wireless charging know that it was left in the drawer.
The cameras chosen by the manufacturer for this model are beyond doubt above average, and therefore much superior to any other “Lite” model I have used to date. However, while the quality of the captured images is decent, don’t expect a performance worthy of a top of the range as is the Mate 30 Pro, S20 Ultra or iPhone 11 Pro.
Having said all this, you will first look at the module equipped with 4 cameras, consisting of a main sensor of 48MP f/1.7, and the secondary sensors of 8MP (wide angle), monochrome of 2MP and even a last 2MP lens used for the calculation of depth.
These sensors have managed on some occasions to surprise me by the positive, but also by the negative.
At the end of the day, the use of HDR on this device is done strangely. When the equipment focuses on the main object the background turns completely white and when you take the picture the background returns to color.
Yes and no… It’s just that I can see a kind of clipping made by software to photography. In the simplest way to explain, they look like two photographs in which one was cropped and pasted into the final image, which unfortunately removes the naturalness of the photo.
See some of the photos taken by this equipment.
Compared against the “old” Samsung Galaxy S8+ that I have here by house, I can say that on display the old Samsung hit this OPPO hard and ugly. Not needing to use HDR in the vast majority of photos, managing to apply it naturally when it was really necessary.
Screen and Sound
This equipment features a 6.4″ AMOLED display and a maximum FHD+ 2400 x 1800 resolution. At the brightness level it can reach the 430nits, managing to ensure incredible colors and contrast that are undeniably capable of impressing.
Meanwhile, its FHD+ resolution offers 408 PPI, which guarantees a huge quality in all types of content. In this field I only had difficulties in outdoor use, that is, under intense sunlight.
At the design level, we have a body/screen ratio of 90.8% with the use of the water drop style notch for the front camera. Its edges and thin margins appeal to the look, but the transition from the screen to the sides could be smoother, especially on the corners of the equipment.
An important detail is that the fingerprint sensor is under the screen and I have to say that it is the best and fastest sensor of this kind that any did I used, too bad is the location be a little below expected.
Let’s go to the audio
In terms of listening to your movie, video or music, this equipment has enough volume and quality for the vast majority of situations. Although it does not have stereo audio the main speaker has immense volume, with a lot of clarity of voice and bass.
So, despite having only one column, managed to surprise me by the quality and volume.
However, in the field of voice calls, your upper spine is good but only up to 80-90%. Above that it is possible to notice some distortion.
Experience in general
In my experience this smartphone has enough power, specs and capabilities to impress the vast majority of enthusiasts.
After all, we have support for the new 5G networks thanks to the SoC Snapdragon 765G, which comes accompanied by 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, 128GB of UFS 2.1 Storage, NFC, good cameras, good screen and a good battery. Basically, in no way these are specifications that characterize the world of smartphone “Lite”.
However, despite having everything to beat head-on against current market offerings. Its price can be a major disadvantage, especially at this time of the post COVID championship (~500€).
Yet not everything is a sea of roses…
There are details that I honestly thought I could get used to over time. But no, and so we have to talk about the software that brings the hardware to life.
After all, I felt some lack of attention in the operating system that is on top of Google’s Android, with the existence of some annoying bugs. Something taken for granted as responding to a message by the notification bar was not possible on this device.
The different Sound Modes are not all available in the top bar, as you can only put in ‘normal’ Sound and Vibration mode. That is, to put in silence without vibration will have to resort to the settings of the equipment, which is not at all what is intended.
At the Hardware level, OPPO Find X2 Lite can be a great bet. It has everything or almost everything we want in a smartphone, bringing even on the table the extra ‘5G’, which is still a little useless for our market, but that guarantees some kind of ‘Future Proof’ if by chance you are thinking of staying with this device more than 2 years.
However, you will have to get used to the software that accompanies it, something that for me needs some brave tweaks.
