Oppo Find X6 Pro review

GSMArena Team, 17 April 2023.


Meet one of the best smartphones in the world, which also happens to be one of the hardest ones to buy - the Oppo Find X6 Pro. The next generation Find flagship introduces an exquisite design, the most premium OLED panel, the fastest available chip, 100W fast charging, and a trio of premium 50MP cameras with the largest of sensors and with Hasselblad Color Calibration. The caveat is it's only available in China.

The Oppo Find X6 Pro is the ultimate smartphone package, going by its specs at least. The phone's design combines Gorilla Glass Victus 2 and Gorilla Glass 5 or eco-leather; there is a metal frame and a special metal ring around the camera island. Oh, and the whole thing is IP68-rated for dust and water resistance.

The 6.82-inch OLED screen uses a 1440p LTPO3 panel of 120Hz dynamic refresh rate, 10-bit color depth, and Dolby Vision support. This screen is capable of 1,500 nits of maximum and up to 2,500 nits of peak brightness. This latest generation LTPO should allow for flexible refresh rate adaptiveness and reduce the strain on the battery life.

The Find X6 Pro is powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, and there is a lot of RAM and UFS 4.0 storage, too. The phone also comes with a large 5,000 mAh battery and seriously fast wired (100W) and wireless (50W) charging support.

But nowadays, the cameras are usually the most intriguing aspect of a high-end smartphone, and that's also the case with the Find X6 Pro. There are three 50MP cameras on its back - a 1.0" primary, one of the very few on the market. The ultrawide and the telephoto cameras rely on large 1/1.56" sensors. Oppo says its periscope tele lens has the best stabilization on the market, too.

There is a lot more to talk about, so let's quickly scroll through the specs and get down to business.

Well, the only thing that's not as flagship-grade is the selfie camera. An average 32MP front camera that's limited to 1080p video capturing seems out of place on this device.

The Find X6 Pro ships inside a black paper box, which contains a 100W SuperVOOC charger and a USB-A-to-C 10A-rated cable.

But that's not all. The bundle also contains a case that copies the phone's back - it has the same split design with a top gray part and a bottom one made of brown eco-leather. The case's top part is made of plastic (the phone's is glass), but we still appreciate these extra steps, and we are glad that many users will get to keep the iconic design even when they are using a case.

By the way, the Black and Green models, which have all-glass rear panels, also come with matching black/green plastic cases with the same matt finish.

Xiaomi most certainly does use ads and bloatware on its flagships. You have to flash the Xiaomi EU ROM to get rid of the ads and bloatware.

that is a 15mm thick phone,not 9mm

This seems like a really good China only phone in every way except the software. There's lots of bloatware and ads on a premium flagship? Only most of it can be removed? That's inexcusable on a phone like this. Even Xiaomi doesn't put ...
