by June 26, 2018

Oppo-find-x-vs-iphone-xChina based handset maker Oppo recently launched its latest flagship Oppo Find X. The truly bezel-less phone comes with a high price tag of EUR 999 (roughly Rs. 78,700) which puts it in direct competition with Apple‘s iPhone X which belongs to the same price segment. Although the iPhone X has been launched last year, it is still one of the best flagships available in the market. Let us compare the Oppo Find X and Apple iPhone X to find out who wins this battle between Android vs iOS. We’ll compare the key specifications of both the phones including Display, Camera, OS, Battery, Processor and Price.

Oppo Find X vs iPhone X: Design and Display

Apple launched the full glass body premium iPhone X last year featuring a 5.8-inch OLED display with 1125×2436 pixel resolution. One of the highlights of the device is that it is the first smartphone to feature a notched display which was later on adopted by several Android smartphone makers in their flagships to achieve higher screen-to-body ratio. However, Oppo has come up with a unique design to achieve the scree-to-body ratio of over 93% without the help of the notch. The Find X features a top section that pops out as soon as the camera app is launched, and it contains the dual rear camera as well as the selfie camera. If you are worried about the durability factor due to the pop-up mechanism, then Oppo claims that it has tested the mechanism for over 300,000 slides so you need not worry about durability for at least 5 years. That’s way more than the average shelf life of a smartphone nowadays. The phone features a 6.42-inch AMOLED display with a 1080×2340 pixel resolution. It sports a premium design with 3D curved glass covering its front and back.

In terms of dimensions, the Find X measures 156.70 x 74.30 x 9.40 mm and weighs about 186 grams whereas the iPhone X measures 143.60 x 70.90 x 7.70 mm and weighs in at 174 grams. So, iPhone X is lighter and slimmer as compared to Find X.

Oppo Find X vs iPhone X: Security

For security purpose, the iPhone X comes with Face ID which is highly secured than any other face unlock mechanism available in current range of smartphones as it is based on 3D technology.

Oppo Find X features AI Face Access feature which can unlock the phone in 0.1 seconds as claimed by the company.

Both the phone lack fingerprint scanner if you are a fan of it.

Oppo Find X vs iPhone X: Software and Hardware

Uner the hood, the Find X is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of inbuilt storage. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box topped with Oppo’s proprietary ColorOS 5.1 and is fueled by 3,730mAh battery with VOOC flash charging support.

The internal storage capacity of the device is 256GB. it is backed by a 2,716mAh non-removable battery and runs Apple’s iOS 11 operating system out of the box.

In terms of performance, the iPhone X is a winner as the A11 Bionic is one of the fastest chipsets present in the market. In terms of battery, you may get better output with Find X. The software selection depends on the user, but we recommend iOS for its smooth and secured interface.

Oppo Find X vs iPhone X: Camera

In the camera department, the iPhone X features a vertically stacked dual rear camera of 12MP + 12MP and a selfie camera of 7MP. While the Find X features a dual rear camera set up comprising of 16MP + 20MP and an impressive 25MP selfie camera to live up to Oppo’s standard of creating good selfie centric smartphones. On paper, the Oppo Find X seems to have a better camera set up as compared to iPhone X. However, if you are a camera buff and camera is one of your primary factors while choosing a phone then you should refer more in-depth user or expert reviews in order to know the actual camera performance before taking a decision.

Oppo Find X vs iPhone X: Price

That brings us to the last parameter to compare i.e. price. The iPhones, as we know, come with a premium price tag. The iPhone X 64GB is priced around Rs. 85,000 and the 256GB is priced around Rs. 98,000. The Oppo Find X price in India is yet not known but it is priced outside at EUR 999 which is roughly Rs. 78,700. However, the actual price in India will be lower than the converted value.

Our Verdict:

Both Apple iPhone X and Oppo Find X are loaded with top end features and specifications. Both the devices flaunt premium design with glass body. iPhone X started a trend of notched display when it was launched last year while the Find X has come up with a unique pop-up camera design which has the potential of becoming a trend this year.
