Only one SKU of the Find X5 Pro is currently available in Europe. Both the smaller 8/128 GB and the larger 12/512 GB storage capacity models are not sold in Germany. Not one with a faux leather back made its way across the border. This makes the decision easier because there is only a choice of two color options – black and white. The 70 Euro cheaper model with MediaTek Dimensity 9000 will not be available here for the time being, but this is not necessarily a bad thing, because it is equipped with a different image and without MariSilicon X co-processor.
The Oppo smartphone has a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, which delivers a QHD Plus resolution, mostly true to color but not as bright as expected. The performance of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is very good, but even faster than its predecessor, it degrades significantly under constant load. There should be little interference with WLAN, because the 6 GHz band is not satisfied.
The camera leaves a very good impression. Both sensors offer excellent performance from macro data to wide angle to wide angle. Although Hasselblad optimization images can in some cases, however, be somewhat on the cool side. The zoom is also very good, but some competitors do better, especially with long focal lengths.
Although Oppo promises a dual-to-tri-band connection when locked to satellites, this didn’t really work when we tested it. It is very possible that this will be fixed in the next update.
Overall, the Oppo Find X5 Pro is one of the best smartphones of 2022. With an RRP of 1,299 euros, for example on Amazon Germany, it does not need to be ashamed of the price comparison. But that’s not cheap.
As a child I was fascinated by my Commodore 16, and this made me interested in computers. Using my first modem, I surfed the BTX videotext system and then the World Wide Web. I have always been fascinated by new technologies, and this is especially true for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. I’ve been part of the Notebookcheck Team since 2013 and still occasionally write for Notebookinfo.de, and I’m looking forward to testing new updates for our readers. I like to spend my time relaxing in photography and barbecues and being with my family.

I have been bilingual since childhood and left Europe to live in Australia, and then New Zealand. My early career with IBM was followed by years of my own small IT business. My passion for technology is more about the impact it has on human behavior rather than the gadgets themselves. Understanding the latter quality is a prerequisite.
