At that time, as most Chinese manufacturers are copying the bangs iPhone X, Oppo has decided to go its own way and to think about how to hide the front camera in the phone. The result of Find X for $ 1,150, which raises many questions.
Oppo Find X got a large AMOLED-display with a diagonal of 6.42 inches. The screen is 93,8% of the whole front surface. On top there are no sensors and cameras. They appear at the top if necessary. But such a solution has several serious drawbacks.
According to The Verge, any mechanical element in the smartphone is becoming a threat to water resistance. The slider mechanism is a threat to the ingress of water, dust, sweat and other unwanted particles that can affect its performance.
In Oppo Find X hidden not only the front 25-megapikselnaja camera, but back camera with two modules for 16 MP. Front camera is not questioned, but the rear has not very high-quality optics. Most smartphones, the camera protrudes from the case, because for best image quality is required good module that is usually big in size. Most likely the rear camera takes good, but not enough to compete with iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S9.
Another weak point is autonomy. Despite the huge battery on 3730 mAh battery and fast charging — battery fully charged in 35 minutes, a mechanical element will consume energy. Given that the smartphone is missing the fingerprint scanner, the top panel to unlock frequently, and this will negatively affect the operating time of the device.
The latter noted designer Philippe Starck in 2009, when commenting on the design of Nokia N97. Any mechanical component, regardless of how good it is, makes the product less durable.
Other characteristics of the Oppo Find X are the same as the typical Android flagship in 2018. This 845 Snapdragon processor, 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage for user files. On top of the Android shell 8.1 installed Oppo ColorOS 5.1.
