Oppo Find X6 Pro Review
In this Oppo Find X6 Pro review, we’ll take a closer look at Oppo’s latest camera-centric flagship, the Find X6 Pro, which boasts some of the most cutting-edge camera technology and a host of other impressive features. However, there is one significant drawback that we’ll also examine. So, without further ado, let’s dive into our comprehensive evaluation of the Find X6 Pro.
Oppo has truly outdone themselves with their latest release, the Find X6 Pro, which boasts one of the most powerful camera systems we’ve seen in a phone yet. This device features a main camera with a one-inch IMX 989 sensor, along with exceptional ultra-wide and telephoto cameras that have been tuned in collaboration with Hasselblad.
In addition to its impressive camera capabilities, the Find X6 Pro boasts a sleek waterproof design, a high-resolution AMOLED display, fast charging capabilities, and the latest flagship chipset. The only drawback is that the Find X6 Pro is currently only available in China.
However, if you’re willing to go through the hassle of importing it, this phone is definitely worth it. You can choose between an all-glass or eco-leather back design, with the latter offering a two-tone design that blends glass and leather.
The Find X6 Pro’s standout feature is undoubtedly its large, round camera bump, which is also two-toned and features a Hasselblad logo. The bump is accented by an aluminum bezel that mimics the grip of a camera lens.
A small orange dot at the bottom helps with alignment. The back of the device curves into a matte aluminum frame that, when combined with the eco-leather back, provides a secure grip. The device is also IP68-rated for water and dust resistance, but it’s unclear how well the leather backing would hold up after exposure to water.
Screen And Features
The Find X6 Pro’s display is a 6.82-inch LTP03 AMOLED with a QHD resolution and Victus 2 protection. The display boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, which makes it incredibly smooth to scroll around on. The high resolution also means that the picture is extra sharp, with a pixel density of 510 PPI.
The display supports 10-bit color depth, HDR 10+, and Dolby Vision. Depending on the color mode you choose, the color accuracy can be excellent. The Vivid setting measured the highest brightness at 860 nits with a manual slider, and it can boost to over 1300 nits in auto mode, which is quite impressive.
The high refresh rate of the screen makes it very smooth when scrolling around, and since it uses LTPOTEC, it’s extra adaptive to save energy.
The Find X6 Pro’s display assistant includes an optical fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication. The display also has the capability to dial down to as low as 1Hz when idling, although the minimum value depends on the screen’s current brightness level.
Audio Speakers, Storage, And System Interface:
The Oppo Find X6 Pro features a pair of stereo speakers, one at the top of its frame and the other at the bottom. They have very good loudness and good audio quality, with nice highs, alright vocals, and some bass.
The device comes with either 256 or 512 GB of onboard storage, which is not expandable through microSD. The interface is a Chinese version of Oppo’s ColorOS 13, which is based on Android 13. Despite being a China-based version of the UI, there is support for Google services. Oppo promises four years of major updates and 5 years of security patches for the device.
The default app store on the Oppo Find X6 Pro is Oppo’s own app market, but installing the Google Play Store is hassle-free. As expected, there are some pre-installed Chinese apps, and you may see Chinese in several parts of the UI.
However, most of these can be uninstalled or changed. Apart from these China-specific features, the interface is basically the same as on other Oppo and Realme phones.
Chip Sets Performance And Battery Endurance:
The Oppo Find X6 Pro is powered by Qualcomm’s most current flagship hardware, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which provides improved performance compared to the previous generation.
It also supports advanced memory tech like LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0. Additionally, under the hood is an in-house developed Mira Silicon X chip for advanced image processing. In benchmarks, the Find X6 Pro is among the best out there, demonstrating flagship-grade performance.
Gaming and multitasking are a breeze on the device. However, even though the phone has an option for high frame rate gaming, none of the titles tested went any higher than 60fps.
The battery life of the Oppo Find X6 Pro is impressive, and the 100W SuperVOOC charging technology is among the fastest in the market. The phone comes with a 5000mAh battery that is split into two cells for faster charging.
In our proprietary battery tests, the phone achieved an endurance rating of 114 hours. The 100W SuperVOOC charger is included in the box, and it can charge the phone from 0 to 64 percent in just 15 minutes, and up to 100 percent in half an hour. The phone also supports fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
The main camera has an f/1.8 aperture and produces images with high levels of detail, good dynamic range, and accurate colors in well-lit conditions. It also performs well in low light, thanks to the large sensor and OIS.
The ultra-wide camera has a 110-degree field of view and an f/2.2 aperture. It produces images with good detail, but the colors can be a bit oversaturated. The periscope telephoto lens has an f/3.0 aperture and can achieve up to 5x hybrid zoom and up to 20x digital zoom. It produces images with good detail and colors, but the sharpness drops off at higher zoom levels.
The camera app offers a range of shooting modes, including Night, Portrait, Pro, and Panorama. There’s also a dedicated mode for shooting 4K video at 60 frames per second. Oppo has partnered with Hasselblad to tune the camera system, and the results are impressive. The images from the Find X6 Pro are some of the best we’ve seen from a smartphone camera.
Daylight video quality: It’s worth noting that the maximum resolution for selfie videos on this smartphone is 1080p. You can see an example at the end of this review. However, you can record videos from the rear cameras in up to 4K resolution at 60fps.
The quality from the main camera is excellent, with flagship-grade detail and sharpness, natural rendition, great colors, and a wide dynamic range. The 4K video from the telephoto camera was also great, with a lot of detail, no traces of noise, lively colors, and okay dynamic range.
The 4K videos from the ultrawide camera have impressive sharpness and dynamic range. However, the colors could be a bit better, although these are still some of the best ultrawide videos around. Electronic stabilization is supported across all cameras, and for the rear cameras, it’s always on. It does a great job at smoothing out shakiness.
Low-light video quality: In low light, the 4K video from the main camera is impressive, with excellent detail, colors, and dynamic range, and the noise is low too. However, three times zoomed low light video is only decent. The detail is adequate, noise is low, and colors are true to life. But there is some softness, and the dynamic range isn’t too wide.
Surprisingly, nighttime video from the ultrawide camera is good, with enough detail, great colors and exposure, and adequate dynamic range. While some noise is visible, it doesn’t get in the way.
Daylight photo quality: By default, the primary camera on this smartphone utilizes pixel binning to generate 12.5-megapixel photos, which are considered among the finest available on smartphones currently. The level of detail captured in the photos is impressive, with the fine details and textures being exceptionally well-captured.
The sharpness of the images is just perfect, and the overall image quality is well-balanced and natural-looking. The colors in the images are vibrant without being overly saturated, and the images exhibit ample contrast, with the dynamic range being satisfactory.
The primary camera on this smartphone is capable of delivering two times lossless zoom, which is quite impressive. While there may be some evidence of upscaling, the photos still retain ample detail, and all other properties match those of regular shots.
Portrait mode shots can be taken using either 1x or 3x zoom, and the 1x portraits from the main camera are particularly noteworthy, with an abundance of detail and proficient separation from the background. The three-time zoomed portraits, captured using the telephoto camera, are also excellent, with great subject rendition and lovely-looking backgrounds.
The regular zoom shots captured using the telephoto lens are similarly impressive, with the zoom level on the viewfinder set to three times, resulting in a slight crop and upscale from the lens’s native 2.8 times zoom. However, there is no detriment to the quality, with plenty of detail, great sharpness, likable colors, and good dynamic range.
Additionally, there is a toggle for six times zoom, which produces decent photos, although the detail level is mediocre, and the sharpness is not ideal. Nevertheless, the other properties are just as good as the native zoom.
The ultrawide camera on this smartphone captures incredibly detailed photos, with fine details appearing quite natural-looking. These photos are also clean of noise, with minimal distortion around the corners. The colors are great, matching those from the main camera, with high contrast and a wide dynamic range that is not too extreme, thanks to the autofocus feature.
Moreover, the ultrawide camera can take macro close-ups, which are outstanding with tons of detail, sharpness, and superb colors.
Low-light photo quality: In low-light conditions, the Find X6 Pro automatically employs night mode processing. Additionally, there is a dedicated night mode that produces the same quality. The photos captured using the main camera in low light are among the best you can get, with a top-notch detail level and excellent exposure.
There is also little to no noise, great colors, and ample dynamic range. The nighttime three-time zoomed photos are similarly impressive, with all shots turning out bright, detailed, and sharp with low noise, if any.
The colors look great, and there is a wide dynamic range. The same can be said for the ultra-wide camera’s performance at night, with impressive photos featuring balanced exposure, great detail, and sharpness. For this type of camera, the color rendition is also great, and there is a wide dynamic range.
Selfies: Selfies on this smartphone are captured using the 32-megapixel front-facing camera, and they are solid. Without HDR, you get plenty of detail, a nicely balanced rendition, and accurate colors. However, the dynamic range is a bit narrow. When HDR is enabled, you may lose some detail, but the dynamic range receives a nice boost.
Finally, the Oppo Find X6 Pro is an impressive flagship phone with amazing features, especially its cameras. The detail, sharpness, color accuracy, and dynamic range of its cameras are top-notch, even in low-light conditions. The only issue is its limited availability, with Oppo not planning to release the phone outside of China.
However, importing the phone could be worth it for those looking for a top-of-the-line device. If you’re looking for alternatives to the Oppo Find X6 Pro, you could consider the Xiaomi 13 Pro or the Vivo X90 Pro, both of which offer similar features and performance.
