As you just saw, Chinese underdogs like the OPPO Find X2 Pro are very capable to take on some of the bigger names in the industry.
In fact, it even has other features that are better than the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.
For starters, the OPPO Find X2 Pro does come with a generous 512GB of storage. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which costs Php4,000 more, only has 128GB of onboard memory.
Although, Samsung is giving you an option for storage expandability via the microSD card slot. But unless you’re planning on getting a ludicrous 1TB of storage, you can settle with the fixed-memory that the Find X2 has.
The OPPO Find X2 Pro also has a 65W fast charging support that easily outclasses the 45W charging of the Samsung flagship. Oh, and for those who are still clinging, the Find X2 Pro still has a headphone jack — a feature that Samsung already let go a couple of years ago.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S20 Ultra does come with fast wireless charging. You can even share battery to other devices with its Wireless PowerShare feature, which is just a fancy name for reverse wireless charging.
As you can see, the OPPO Find X2 Pro is already a great device for what it is. Other than the aforementioned features, it also has a large and vibrant screen, great cameras, and flagship-level performance. But let’s not get into that yet, as we’ll reserve that for our full review.
OPPO Find X2 Pro even comes with a Vegan Orange Leather that’s more attractive than any Galaxy S20 Ultra variants

The OPPO Find X2 Pro is definitely a proper flagship smartphone with a ridiculous price tag of Php65,990.
But if you’re still not convinced, plus branding and flashier features are a big deal for you — then you might not mind spending Php4,000 (Php69,990) more for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Besides the social status, going with the Galaxy S20 Ultra also entitles you to a bigger and more advanced screen. Also, we think the Samsung One UI is one of the cleanest and straightforward interfaces in the market.
Samsung’s flagship handset also has better cameras. Led by a 108-megapixel primary shooter and a 40-megapixel selfie snapper on the front. It can even record 8K videos.
You should also get better sound out of this with its AKG-tuned stereo speakers. And of course, the aforementioned charging features and a bigger 5,000mAh battery.
As stated earlier, it is available in the Philippines for Php69,990. You can learn more about it in our Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra hands-on review.
