Oppo Find X5 test: it has (almost) everything from the Pro

Oppo Find X5 test: it has (almost) everything from the Pro

Oppo has opted for the same triple image sensor found in the Find X5 Pro, but there are still some small differences. We are still entitled to dual 50MP Sony IMX766 wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle sensors. The whole thing is completed by a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom (and digital up to 20x).

At the wide angle, the Find X5 Pro is covered with a glass lens to better fight chromatic aberrations and to deliver a more accurate color rendering. It is also equipped with 5-axis optical stabilization (3 axes on the sensor and 2 axes on the lens).

The Find X5’s wide-angle lens offers a resin lens and bi-axis optical stabilization as well as digital stabilization (EIS). Both benefit from the partnership with Hasselblad and the MariSilicon X image-processing chip. We’ll compare the photo performance to that of its bigger brother, but also that of the massive Pixel 6 Pro.

Main unit: 50 MP, f / 1.8, eq. 24 mm

We decided to compare the results of the Find X5 with the Pro version, only for the difference in aperture (f/1.8 for Find X and f/1.7 for Pro). As you will see, the two devices finally offer a very close presentation.

In good lighting conditions, the Find X5 provides a very convincing shot. As with the old photo, the photo is very clear and rich in detail. We can see that the colors are a little more saturated to the left of our test scene, and the cards have a slightly more pinkish hue. Find X5 Pro offers a slightly more natural display, but it will be difficult to distinguish the two devices in a standard daytime view.

At night, we see that the Find X5 offers a slightly more contrast display. We see it for example on the mane of the lion, whose relief is most evident. The Pro once again offers a smoother, more natural treatment, even if we see a bit of a blur in the book’s title.

Facing Pixel 6 Pro

The Google smartphone proved to be particularly good at exercise, and we also compared it.

Either way, we notice that the Pixel 6 Pro displays more detail and better clarity. It is especially important on faces or book cover, which suggests more roughness.

50 MP mode

We looked at the 50MP mode in a dedicated lab article when testing the Find X5 Pro. This Find X5 behaves the same way, we refer you to the latter. Here again, it is interesting provided that you pay attention to the storage space of the device or choose a solution on Zipper.

Ultra wide-angle module: 50 MP, f / 2.2, eq. 16 mm

In the ultra-wide angle, the manufacturer uses the same 50-megapixel wide-angle sensor. The result this time was better than Pixel’s.

A Google smartphone may provide better exposure and lower digital smoothing, but the result is not as accurate as the Find X5. The Oppo offers a score very close to the main unit, and that’s to its credit.

Telephoto unit: 13 MP, f / 2.4, eq. 52 mm

Oppo doesn’t change the formula here and Find X5 offers shots quite similar to those of the Pro. Unfortunately, this is a unit that has not received much attention from the company. The 2x optical zoom struggles to compete with the 3x or 10x zoom offered by devices like Galaxy S22 UltraThe Huawei P50 Pro where is the Pixel 6 Pro.

In this unit, we see that the display of the Find X5 is cooler and the colors are less vivid. It all stays clear, but the Pro shot benefits from better sharpness. So the treatment used varies slightly.

In the dark, the Find X5 Pro is a little better exposed, but it’s not much more attractive.

Front and video unit

Like the Pro, Find X5 is equipped with a front 32 MP wide-angle (f / 2.4) image sensor. A very high-quality module, which allows you to take detailed photos, has an effective portrait mode. It is easy to see beard hair or small bumps on the face. The display is normal and it is possible to customize the background blur on the fly. However it is necessary to determine the exposure time during capture.

since Look for the X3 Pro, Oppo takes care of the video. Once again, the rendering presented here lives up to our expectations. Day or night, it is possible to shoot in 4K HDR at 60 frames per second and enjoy excellent quality. So it is a smartphone capable of supporting amateur videographers.
