OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition Review: Almost Perfect?


The OPPO Find X3 series has been increasing, such as Find X3 Pro Mars Exploration Edition. Now users have one more choice-OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition.

For OPPO, the X3 series is not only a product series but also a representative of a high-end brand, as the product manager of Find mentioned before: “This is the combination of product and artistic sense… It is OPPO that wants to present more A state to the outside world.”

From the perspective of past products, OPPO seems to be particularly keen on “re-engraving” the year’s flagship models, such as the Reno Ace Gundam customized version and Ace2 EVA limited edition, which often achieve good results, and the market is also buying it.

Although some users sometimes say that “technology is based on shell replacement”, there are one or many more options based on the original configuration. This approach is still worth encouraging.

Take the OPPO Find X3 Pro photographer version we got this time as an example. The design inspiration comes from a retro camera. The design features are reflected in the packaging box. The contrast processing of silver + black and the black leather material have an excellent visual effect. There is a sense of quality.

The phone’s back is also treated with a contrasting color of silver + black, and the top is still made of white glass, but it feels a bit like metal. It reflects a silver-white effect under direct light, and the hand feels very delicate.

The bottom is made of black leather, which has a relatively soft feel and pronounced texture, making people think of the leather material on old-fashioned cameras instantly.

How can the combination of leather and glass make the seams tight enough? This is a problem that plagues many businesses. Looking closely at the back of the OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition, the seams of the two materials are very neatly cut, and the transition is natural. Even the hair is difficult to fit in.

Such emphasis on the association with old-fashioned cameras is naturally to focus on shooting capabilities. The rear four-camera crater camera module, the primary camera is less than 50 million, Sony IMX766 CMOS, f/1.8 aperture, and supports optical image stabilization.

As a “re-enacted version”, OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition is also in line with the standard version in terms of configuration, with only 16+512GB in terms of memory. Considering the central shooting ability of mobile phones, large memory can make shooting more accessible, which is understandable. The following are the detailed parameters of OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition:

Design & Appearance

Different from the standard cement gray design packaging, OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer’s version has a more sophisticated color-contrasting style packaging. The vast body is matched with a large area of ​​leather material and a metal top cover. It even looks a bit like a luxury product. For packaging, OPPO just had to write the word “exquisite” on the box.

Open the layers of packaging; there are a 65W charging head, data cable, attached high-fidelity headset, a protective shell with the same color as the back shell of the phone, and a warranty card in the box.

The phone is equipped with a 6.7-inch QHD+ screen, the front design is no different from the standard version, and the micro-curved design is beautiful.

The upper and lower borders are almost the same width, have excellent chin control, and have extraordinary visual effects. The back of the phone is distinct. The upper part is a four-camera camera module designed with a crater. The silver paste spraying process performs well on the glass back panel, and the touch is gentle and smooth.

The leather material is soft to the touch, and the texture is more prominent. Obviously this is intentional by OPPO to make the phone leather closer to the retro camera.

The transition between leather and glass is very natural, and there is no cut feeling when you get started. The thickness of the leather material and the glass back shell is uninformed, and there is no sense of division.

The camera module is still a combination of two IMX766 CMOS main cameras, a telephoto lens and a macro lens. The phone’s left side is the volume dial, and the right side is the power button.

The body openings are mainly concentrated on the bottom frame of the phone; from left to right are the speaker opening, charging/headphone jack, noise reduction opening, and SIM card slot.


The OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition hardware configuration is the same as the standard version; that is, the dual IMX766 primary camera is still retained on the Photographer Edition. OPPO is very confident in its performance.

Let’s take a look at the sample.The shooting environment is cloudy, and the time is around 3 pm. The light effect is insufficient, but the OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition can still show the shooting details better. Still, the background level of the screen is relatively average. In terms of light and dark elements, the OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition shows quite well.

In the indoor environment, OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer’s Edition performed very well, with bright colors and a better display of light intensity changes. In macro mode, OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition still performs well.

OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition has a solid ability to perform in dark parts. Still, it does not overwhelmingly impose the original brightness on the dark parts when shooting at night.

From the proofs, the lighting performance is good, the sense of layering is strong, and the difference between light and dark is noticeable. Jiang Wen filter still has an excellent picture tuning effect, and the old-fashioned architectural filter adds a sense of cinema to it.


The SoC used by OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition is Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, consistent with the standard version. Let’s take a look at its specific performance.


When the performance mode is not turned on, the Snapdragon 888’s single-core run scored 809 points, and the multi-core run scored 3362 points.

After the performance mode was turned on, the single-core score came to 1114 points, an increase of 37%, and the multi-core score was 3360.

This approach is for battery life considerations. In daily use, if the performance of the SoC is fully charged in real-time, it will cause a waste of power. When the performance mode is turned on, it is usually to meet the game’s needs, and the single-core score increase by 37% is to meet the game’s requirements.


In the GFXBench test, the performance is still comparable to that of the mainstream Snapdragon 888.


In Androbench, the sequential read speed is 2022.72MB/s, and the sequential write speed is 787.02MB/s, the standard USF 3.1 flash-memory speed.

Battery Life

In the charging test, cell phone power started with 3% power, which reached 30% in just 5 minutes, 50% in 10 minutes, 86% in 20 minutes, and 100% in 26 minutes.

We use the battery dog ​​produced by Kuai Technology to carry out the endurance side test. The test items include full-load operation of the processor, video browsing, web browsing, etc. After 46 minutes and 09 seconds, the power consumption is 9%. This is a perfect result; the whole process is estimated to last for more than 8 hours.


Dare to launch a revised version of the contemporary flagship phone again half a year after its release, OPPO is confident in the OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition. In the author’s many days of experience, I also clearly felt the tyranny of this phone, and even once made the author think that the Find X3 Pro series will be a perfect model in the history of OPPO mobile phones.

Judging from our shooting proofs, the OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition’s impact system has achieved accurate color restoration and very high anti-interference ability in various environments. For consumers, the OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition has familiar but surprising shooting performance everywhere, and the image flagship deserves its name.

Although the processor is still using Snapdragon 888, in actual testing and gaming experience, the performance of this SoC is still top-notch. Coupled with UFS 3.1, I rarely experience it in the multi-day experience when the mobile phone performance reaches the bottleneck.

The practical appearance distinction from the standard version and making users pay more attention to the shooting of mobile phones is more like a microcosm of the OPPO Find series. OPPO is confident and capable of raising the image level of mobile phones to unprecedented heights. The OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition fully reflects this urgency and users’ enthusiasm for sharing.

In terms of appearance, the exquisiteness of the hand is difficult to be displayed by static pictures; the warm leather back shell and the weight of the whole machine are convenient. If you don’t hold it in your hand and play with it carefully, it would be a waste of the excellent design of this phone.

If you need a mobile phone with various qualities in the top echelon of domestic production, then OPPO Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition is undoubtedly your choice.
