Summary of advantages:
OPPO Find N 5G:
• Higher resolution main rear camera
• Higher resolution ultrawide camera
• Higher resolution telephoto camera
• Higher resolution front cameras (outer and inner)
• Slight larger battery capacity (4,500mAh vs 4,100mAh)
• Faster charging rate (33W vs. 25W)
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G
• Larger inner display (7.6-inch vs. 7.1-inch)
• Larger outer display (6.2-inch vs. 5.49)
• IPX8 water resistance
• Pen support
The design of both phones is quite alike: they open up like a handbook to offer a larger screen. However, the OPPO Find N 5G is more compact with 7.1-inch (inner) and 5.49-inch (outer) displays. On the flip side, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G has larger inner and outer screens at 7.6-inch and 6.1-inch, respectively. In addition, the former has an AMOLED panel, while the latter has a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel. What’s more, protecting their screens is Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.
Both OPPO Find N 5G and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G are powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G SoC, so we can expect the same level of performance on both devices.
RAM and Storage
In terms of RAM, the OPPO Find N 5G comes with two options: 8GB and 12GB, while the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G comes in a single configuration of 12GB. Both have LPDRR5 RAM. More so, for the storage, both are offered with 256GB or 512GB of UFS 3.1.
The two foldable smartphones have versatile shooters with triple-rear cameras but different configurations. The OPPO Find N 5G has higher-resolution cameras for both front and rear. On paper, the OPPO device looks better with its 50MP Sony IMX 766 main sensor, 16MP ultra-wide shooter, and 13MP telephoto lens. On the other hand, all three main, ultra-wide, and telephoto lenses of the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G have 12MP sensors.
However, talking about the cover screen and main screen front camera, the Find N 5G also has an advantage. It has a 32MP lens for the cover screen compared to the 10MP on the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The former’s main screen’s selfie camera stands at 32MP, while the latter only has a 4MP under-display shooter.
Take note, though, that these numbers don’t always equate to quality. We will provide proof of which camera is better once we test both units for comparison.
Connectivity and Features
All your bases are pretty much covered when it comes to connectivity, as both devices support 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, SatNavs, NFC, and Dual-SIM. For security, both devices also have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Meanwhile, the Samsung foldable smartphone advances with its other features, such as IPX8 water resistance and Pen support. Indeed, these are all great features considering the large screen.
In terms of battery, the OPPO Find N 5G gets a slightly larger battery capacity at 4,500mAh compared to the 4,400mAh of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G. The former also supports a faster 33W wired, 15W wireless, and 10W reverse charging. The Galaxy Z Fold 3, on the other hand, supports a maximum of 25W wired, 11W wireless, and 11W reverse charging.
Which one to get?
Although both have similarities, it is worth noting that OPPO does a great job with its first foldable smartphone, finally giving Samsung some real competition. Further, the OPPO Find N 5G could slay in the camera and battery department. In addition, its more compact design is also a thing that some people might opt for.
However, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is still a good choice for those who want larger displays. It’s also a plus that it has IPX8 water resistance and pen support.
We can’t compare them yet in terms of price as there’s no word yet about the Find N 5G’s local pricing and availability. However, it would be more attractive if it would come more affordable.
