Oppo Find X5 test: it has (almost) everything of a Pro

Oppo has opted for the same triple photosensor as in the Find X5 Pro, but there are still some small differences. We are still entitled to a 50 Mpx Sony IMX766 sensor duo for wide angle and ultra wide angle. Everything is completed with a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom (and digital up to 20x).

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

The wide angle of the Find X5 offers a resin lens and 2-axis optical stabilization, as well as digital stabilization (EIS). Both benefit from the partnership with Hasselblad and the MariSilicon X image processing chip. We will compare its photographic performance with that of its big brother, but also with that of the formidable Pixel 6 Pro.

Main module: 50 Mpx, f/1.8, éq. 24mm

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

In good light conditions the Find X5 delivers a very convincing shot. As with his elder, the photo is very clear and rich in detail. We can see that the colors are slightly more saturated to the left of our test scene and that the cards have a slightly more pinkish tint. The Find X5 Pro offers a slightly more natural rendering, but it will be hard to tell the two devices apart in a standard daytime photo.

At night, we see the Find X5 offer a slightly more contrasty rendering. We see it for example in the lion’s mane, whose relief seems more pronounced. The Pro again offers a slightly smoother and more natural treatment, although we do see a bit of blurring in the title of the book.

Face on Pixel 6 Pro

Google’s smartphone proves to be particularly good in exercise, and we also compare them.

In both situations, we noticed that the Pixel 6 Pro shows even more detail and better sharpness. It is particularly significant on the faces or cover of the book, suggesting greater roughness.

50MP mode

We examined the 50 Mpx mode in a dedicated lab article when testing the Find X5 Pro. This Find X5 behaves in the same way, we refer you to the latter. Here again, it is interesting as long as you pay attention to the storage space of the device or opt for a solution in the cloud.

Ultra wide angle module: 50 Mpx, f/2.2, éq. 16mm

In ultra wide angle, the manufacturer uses the same 50 Mpx sensor as for the wide angle. The result this time is better than the Pixel.

Google’s smartphone may offer better exposure and less digital smoothing, but the result isn’t as sharp as the Find X5. Oppo’s device offers a result very similar to that of the main module, which is its merit.

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

Oppo doesn’t change the formula here and the Find X5 offers fairly similar shots to the Pro. Unfortunately, this is a module that hasn’t received as much attention from the firm. Its 2x optical zoom struggles to compete with the 3x or 10x zooms offered by devices like the Galaxy S22 Ultrathe Huawei P50 Pro where he Pixel 6 Pro.

In this module, we see that the rendering of the Find X5 is cooler and the colors are less vivid. The set remains clear, but the Pro’s shot benefits from better sharpness. Therefore, the treatment used differs somewhat.

In the dark, the Find X5 Pro is slightly better exposed, but hardly more attractive.

Front and video module

Like the Pro, the Find X5 is equipped with a 32 Mpx wide-angle front photosensor (f/2.4). A module of very good quality, which allows you to take detailed shots, and which has an effective portrait mode. It is easy to see the hairs of a beard or the small bumps on the face. The rendering is natural and it is possible to customize the background blur on the fly. However, it is necessary to set an exposure time during capture.

From the Find X3 Pro, Oppo takes care of the video. Once again, the representation offered here meets our expectations. Day or night, it is possible to shoot in 4K HDR at 60fps and enjoy excellent quality. Therefore, it is a smartphone capable of supporting amateur videographers.
