I’ve had an iPhone for the last ten years since the 4 was released in 2010. Always enjoyed Apple’s simple and intuitive interface and never felt the need to look elsewhere. The only drawback of the iPhone is how bloody expensive they are. I was paying over £80 a month on my last contract. So when I got a notification that I was eligible to upgrade I decided to look elsewhere – and prove I’m not the Apple fanboy people once thought I was!
Enter the Oppo Find X2 Pro.
I’m no luddite but I don’t grasp the technicalities of mobile devices. I like having new, shiny toys but the:
- 6.7-inch OLED 120Hz display
- 48-megapixel main camera
- 32-megapixel selfie camera
- Snapdragon 865
- 4260mAh battery
- 512GB storage
- 12GB RAM
doesn’t mean a great deal to me.
I wanted a good camera as I love taking photos and a decent battery life. The rest is neither here nor there so I’m certain many other devices – including the latest iPhone – would have suited my needs perfectly, but there is something quite gorgeous about this phone. As expected the camera is superb and easily the match of similar priced devices. When I think back to what my first digital camera was like, this is far, far, superior. The colours really pop and the detail is incredible.
The screen is massive and looks amazing watching HD movies. I read something about upscaling from 30fps to 60fps when streaming on Netflix and Youtube. It also has built in stereo speakers and sounds great with or without headphones. I’ve also never had a phone which charges so quickly. Before going to work and having the phone on 12% battery, I plugged it in and inside 30 minutes it was sitting on 92%. The 512 gb storage will come in really handy with my propensity to photograph pretty much everything and anything.
I’m very pleased with my choice. One of my friends is also very pleased with my choice and has ordered the same device. What phone do you use?
