Let’s start with the processor: that’s how you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 685 with the Oppo Find X3 Neo. This model from 2020 is strong enough for this device. Apps open quickly and switching between them is easy.

The Oppo Find X3 Neo has a solid storage capacity of 256GB and a good 12GB of RAM, the hardware of this device makes it possible to support good connectivity such as the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth standard, but also the much-discussed 5G.

The main sensor of the Sony IMX766 is capable of absorbing 63.8% more light compared to the IMX586, which means brighter and clearer photos and videos. The sensor has 1.0 µm pixels and a 1 / 1.56-inch matrix. Overall, the OPPO Find X3 Neo has a rear quad camera with a 50MP main sensor, 16MP ultra-wide-angle and 13MP telephoto (5x hybrid zoom), and a 2MP macro lens. In addition, the camera supports DOL-HDR (Digital Dynamic Range Overlay), which improves the quality of photos and videos. On the front of the smartphone is a 32 MP selfie camera.

Other specs include a beautiful 6.5-inch curved display with FHD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The device is powered by a 4500mAh battery that supports 65W fast charging wired. It is also worth noting the presence of a liquid cooling system for smartphone components. At the same time, the device turned out to be relatively compact: the thickness of the device is 7.9 mm, with a weight of about 184 grams.

The screen is a gem on the Find X3 Neo, when you are watching a video on this device is a pleasure, made possible thanks to the two stereo speakers! Although it is striking that one of the two stereo speakers is weaker than the other.

So far so good. However, there is no wireless charging, but on the other hand, you do get a hefty battery of no less than 4500 mAh. Logically, this is more than enough for a day of intensive use.

With the supplied charger, which is no longer obvious nowadays, the device is charged at a fast 65 watts. With that charger, the Oppo Find X3 Neo is fully charged in more than half an hour. In practice, this meant that I connected the device to the charger in the evening during the evening ritual. Fifteen minutes later and the battery was fully charged from the slight loss throughout the day.

The primary lens is one from Sony, specially developed for the new Oppo smartphones. Regardless, the results are there to support their claims. Taking photos is very easy, takes the changing light into account and takes focus quickly. With the oval lenses, we see a similar story, although the use of the other lenses, such as the macro, is rather limited for me. Oppo has also packed the camera app packed with extra functionalities such as HDR recordings and duo video. This is a mode where you simultaneously record a video with the selfie camera and the main camera. Ideal for the influencers among us.

Very bright and colour accurate screen

The camera is as good as it gets for the price
