OPPO might be the underdog when compared to Samsung. But as you just saw, the OPPO Find X2 clearly dominates the Samsung Galaxy S20 in major areas.
The most obvious one is in the display department. The Find X2 has a bigger 6.7-inch screen, while the latter is only at 6.2-inches.
But to Samsung’s credit, it has the same QHD+ resolution, a fast 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+ support. In fact, we expect the Dynamic AMOLED screen on the Galaxy S20 to have better color and contrast than the OLED on the former.
The OPPO Find X2 has a 4,200mAh battery that’s marginally bigger than the 4,200mAh capacity of the Galaxy S20.
Even more, the Find X2 has a 65W fast charging technology. That’s three times faster than the 25W charging on the latter. But to Samsung’s credit, the Galaxy S20 does have wireless charging and reverse wireless charging — features that the Find X2 lacks.
Based on experience, the traditional in-display fingerprint scanner is faster and more reliable than the ultra-sonic technology that Samsung uses. A win for the OPPO Find X2.
We have mixed results in the camera department. The OPPO Find X2 has a 48-megapixel primary shooter. That may look good on numbers, but the bigger individual pixels on the 12-megapixel Samsung camera might take equally good images.
Both the OPPO Find X2 and Samsung Galaxy S20 have 12-megapixel ultra-wide cameras. However, the Galaxy S20 gets a one up with its 64-megapixel telephoto lens that can do up to 30x of hybrid zoom, while the latter only has a 13-megapixel with 20x of digital zoom.
Oh, and for those who are worried, performance shouldn’t be a big issue in a flagship device like this. Both the Snapdragon 865 (OPPO Find X2) and Exynos 990 (Samsung Galaxy S20) are some of the most powerful processors in the market today.
Pricing wise, the OPPO Find X2 is available in Europe for EUR999. The direct conversion is a little higher since it’s in Euros. But once it arrives in the Philippines, we expect it to be in the sub-Php50k range, just like the Samsung Galaxy S20.
Bottomline, it looks like the OPPO Find X2 is a winner here. Power users would really prefer its more reliable processor, ultra-fast charging, and bigger display.
But if you want something more compact, has storage expandability, and fancier features like IP68 protection, and reverse wireless charging, then going with the Samsung Galaxy S20 is not a bad idea, either.
