This week, the Remix team took the Oppo Find X3 Lite 5G for a test drive, assessing how it stacked up to other phones on the market. The Find X3 Lite is a brand-new offering from Oppo in the ‘Find’ series, with a premium and futuristic edge, it's a cut above the competition - this is not your ordinary smartphone. Here's our verdict...
The Cameras (all 5 of them) are INSANE
Offering five cameras in total, including a 64 Megapixel main camera, an ultrawide lens, and macro, no moment will be left uncaptured. Remix found the camera quality unparalleled, resulting in a little too much camera time over the week (guilty but rude not to right?). It's not just the back cameras that should get all the credit though, the front-facing camera ensures your Instagram selfie game is always on point. Something extra Remix liked about the Find X3 Lite? The Dual-View video, which allows you to record from both the front-facing and rear-facing camera at the same time. It’s perfect for capturing reactions from all angles.
There is not much Oppo hasn’t thought of
The Find X3 Lite’s features continued to impress us. We found you can easily log into the phone as different users, which is super helpful if you like keeping your work and personal life separate. Utilising the phone's double sim card port this is easily achievable and allows for chill Sundays without interruption (leave those pesky work messages till Monday.) Customisation is the name of the game with the Find X3 Lite, unlike many other smartphones on the market which force you to conform, the Oppo lets your individuality run free with the ability to change the way apps and themes look, and even the way you get your notifications. Because, who wants to receive an Insta DM like everyone else?
Blue is the new black
Long gone are the days of phones only being available in black and white, the Oppo Find X3 Lite strikes out with an angelic Astral Blue colourway stretching to the rounded polished edges and the raised camera housing. The Find X3 Lite is the epitome of sleek, and is sure to have your friends asking: ‘What is that thing?’ This phone will not fly under the radar, but what's the fun in that?
It charges fast, REALLY fast
Long gone are the days of charging your phone for hours on end, and here at Remix, our phones get absolutely thrashed, so we’re tough critics. The Find X3 Lite allows you to charge wherever and whenever you want. With the Find X3 Lite you can get back to 100 percent battery percent in as little as 38 minutes using the clever, Superfast, 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charging feature. We all know that feeling when you wake up only to realise your phone wasn’t charging all night. Well, never again, thanks to the Find X3 Lite and its superior battery capabilities.
Bang for your buck
Above all the Oppo Find X3 Lite is a serious smartphone, for a not so serious price. The RRP of $799 is bang for buck considering what you're getting: premium design, cameras and features galore. One of Remix’s favourite (amazingly, free) software features is the peaceful and calming games pre-loaded onto the device, rivalling similar pay-monthly apps. We also loved the customisable and personalised sleeping sounds that you can set up to play for that dusty weekend arvo nap. After spending the week with the now office-favourite Find X3 Lite, It's fair to say that the Oppo is some serious competition, and is punching well above its weight.
