OPPO Pad Review: Large Display For Productivity With Snapdragon 870


OPPO will make preparations for a long time when it tries to enter a new field, such as the earlier true wireless earphone market, smart TVs, etc., which also makes these long-term polished products available as soon as they are released. good market performance. On February 24, Although it can be seen from the product rhythm that the OPPO Pad has indeed been polished for a long time this time, the 11-inch size is obviously the result of long-term research, and this site is believed to be more in line with the first intuition of many people. definition of the word.

At this size, the OPPO Pad is also very thin and light, reaching the mainstream level of as thin as 6.99mm and as light as 507g. Although it is still inconvenient to play games when you hold it in your hand to watch videos, create and simply work, you can still feel its lightness and thinness.

Although the size makes people a little “aesthetic fatigue”, the design of the OPPO Pad is eye-catching. This back cover adopts the “streamer crystal drilling process”, which is somewhat similar to the crystal diamondback cover on the Reno series mobile phones.

On the other hand, on the camera side, OPPO Pad has also made a very fashionable splicing design, with a pure crystal diamondback cover on one side and a vibrant OPPO logo on the other side. The advantage of this is that it is very “young and youthful”. “The feeling, it does seem to have a lot of personalities. It’s a pity that we received the most stable black this time, but it actually has more youthful silver and purple options and even made an artist-limited set. Interested friends can also pay attention to other colors.

On the front of the fuselage, OPPO Pad has prepared a 10.95-inch 120Hz high refresh rate screen with a resolution of 2560×1600, which is familiar to everyone. The actual display effect of this screen is still good. With the four large sound cavity speakers blessed by Dolby, the experience of watching movies, animations, or TV series is quite good.

As for performance, this time OPPO Pad is equipped with the Snapdragon 870 processor that everyone likes very much, and the flagship-level performance is still very reliable. But after all, it is such a large size. It would be meaningless to evaluate its game performance like an Android phone, so we only chose the game “Genshin Impact” to test its performance. limit.

Although the game will prompt “Severely high load”, under the high-quality +60 frame setting, the frame rate of the OPPO Pad is quite good. The average frame rate in half an hour can reach 56.2 frames, which is already a lot of Snapdragon. Only the Dragon 888 mobile phone and even the Snapdragon 8 model can achieve the results. With the blessing of a more powerful cooling module such as a tablet, it does play a different role.

Of course, although the frame rate is very good, and the OPPO Pad’s body has been controlled quite well, I still feel that the tablet is too heavy in the game, and I will be tired after a long time. I may still have to play chess and cards, strategy, or audio games. This kind of game that does not need to pick up the tablet will be more comfortable to play – on the other hand, games such as “Genshin Impact” can also be considered to be operated through the handle, and the experience may be better.

Maybe some friends have already seen it here. The OPPO Pad chooses this size, and the main purpose is not for games, but for office work. In order to allow users to work better, it is also equipped with a keyboard and a stylus, plus functions such as free-floating windows, application split-screen, and multi-screen collaboration, the actual performance is quite expected.

Let’s talk about the keyboard first. In terms of keyboard, the choice of OPPO Pad is still the mainstream keyboard cover design, which can be adsorbed on the tablet in the form of magnetic suction for protection. Although there is no touchpad, it can be made lighter, thinner, and easier to carry, which is a solution that everyone recognizes. Cover the keyboard to take away, open the keyboard to start creating, the whole experience is silky and smooth, and it feels good to type.

For the convenience of use, it also prepares a lot of shortcut key settings in the keyboard, such as the task key + Enters key to directly return to the desktop, the Tab key + Alt key to switch recent tasks, etc. After you are proficient, you can control the tablet horizontally or horizontally. Very convenient. However, it is a bit strange to say that although it is called the “task key”, in fact, clicking it will only call up the Xiaobu assistant. Maybe it will be more reasonable for OPPO to replace it with the “assistant key” in the future?

Let’s talk about its stylus. The pen equipped with OPPO Pad this time is their first stylus OPPO Pencil. The design is still very OPPO. The whole body is frosted white, and the lines of the pen are straight and straight. There are also two ridges on the magnetic charging side. At the end of the ridgeline is the classic OPPO Logo, which looks quite like a high-end pen.

This OPPO Pencil is very smooth when writing, and even sometimes makes me feel “too smooth”. OPPO has also prepared a lot of software and hardware optimizations for it, such as the handwriting recognition accuracy of “5g water outlet”, the self-developed OPPO Pencil SDK algorithm and application-specific optimization, etc. If you have friends who use apps such as Yunji, you will probably feel Very pleasantly surprised.

In addition, OPPO Pad has specially prepared some linkage functions for this stylus, such as tapping the screen on the screen to call out the note APP directly, double-clicking the pen holder to switch strokes, and other shortcuts functions, etc. For those who need to take notes in class and have a meeting suddenly For those who want to record the key points, I believe it will be the highlight function.

With such satisfactory accessories, does OPPO Pad provide sufficient depth optimization for creation and office in the system? Of course, there is, and there are quite a few.

It seems to have absorbed the previous large-screen optimization experience on OPPO Find N. On this Pad, OPPO has prepared a lot of large-screen functions, such as two-finger sliding split-screen gestures, parallel windows, free-floating windows, etc. Even some functions are optimized for the shape of the tablet, which will be smoother to use.

Especially the free-floating window function, compared with the original operation on the mobile phone that needs to slide to a specific position to trigger the floating window form, the free-floating window on the tablet only needs to slide up, and the floating window can be opened without stopping, or The small window is triggered by pinching with four fingers; and the small window can be freely changed in size, plus the high fluency of ColorOS, the overall experience is naturally quite comfortable and easy to use.

What’s more interesting is that in this case, ColorOS for Pad also prepares the function of dragging and dropping files. For example, in terms of adding pictures, it only needs to press and hold the file icon until it floats, and then the picture can be easily inserted into the note. Or in the document, it is very similar to the operation logic of the familiar PC system.

In addition, OPPO Pad also supports the linkage function with other devices this time. In addition to joining the mutual transmission alliance, it can easily use the OPPO mutual transmission function to quickly transfer files with other products, and it can also project the mobile phone screen onto the tablet. The operation of the mobile phone screen can be completed on the tablet. With the free-floating window function mentioned above, the operation experience of multi-application and multi-device collaboration can still give us a “productive” feeling.

Finally, let’s talk about continuation. This time, the OPPO Pad uses a super-large battery of 8360mAh. With the Snapdragon 870, which has an excellent power consumption ratio, the overall battery life is still very good. For the usage scenario of the tablet, we simulated the use of it for one hour of “Genshin Impact”, one hour of Bilibili 1080P video viewing, and one hour of simulated graphic office, and recorded its power consumption. Arranged as shown:

What needs to be added here is that in the above three scenarios, we have adopted a brightness of about 50%; in the simulated graphic office scene, in addition to using its keyboard cover, we also connected a Bluetooth mouse, and the refresh rate of the screen is set to 120Hz, and some system applications such as settings and notes are also opened in the background for collaborative creation.

It can be seen that the OPPO Pad can last for more than 14 hours of continuous work with more devices connected. If the power-saving mode is turned on to reduce the frame rate, its battery life may be longer. In the face of video viewing, it can achieve more than 16 hours of battery life, which is quite good.

In general, as a new entrant in the tablet computer industry, although OPPO Pad is not particularly eye-catching, its excellent comprehensive configuration and ingenious design allow it to show OPPO’s unique understanding of tablet products. The price starting from 2299 yuan makes it show different strong competitiveness.

With the gradual improvement of OPPO’s ecology, I believe that its experience will be further improved and improved in the future. If you also need a good tool that is enough to help you create, I believe that choosing it will not disappoint you.
