OPPO Find X2 Pro Lamborghini Edition Review




OPPO has partnered with Lamborghini once again for its flagship’s limited edition model. They took inspiration from the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster, and they’ve turned an elegant device into something that would definitely steal the attention from the room. While you probably wouldn’t be able to purchase the device locally, we can still appreciate OPPO’s craftsmanship when it comes to their special devices. Check it out below!

Design and Construction

In true Lamborghini nature, the recurring theme of the limited edition device is carbon fiber. Its back is made of a four-layer carbon fiber texture covered in contoured glass to match the curves on a Lamborghini’s body. While it may not have an additional effect on the device’s aerodynamics, it makes the device easier to grip in both portrait and landscape modes. The rear cameras module has also been changed, and now sits in a hexagonal lens frame, with gold accents – just like the Lamborghini insignia at the bottom of the device.

OPPO has included a special case in the box, made of microfiber leather in bronze and black carbon fiber.

At the front sits a 6.7-inch Quad HD+ OLED display that curves aggressively on the sides. It’s protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 6, with the front camera housed in a punch-hole module on the upper left corner of the device.

On the left side, you’ll find the volume rocker, while the gold-accented power button is located on the right.

The top is bare, save for the two antennas and noise-canceling mic. Meanwhile, the SIM tray, USB Type-C Port, and speaker grille sit at the bottom.

If OPPO’s goal was to make people drool in envy, then they’ve definitely achieved it. Everything about the device, including the curvature on the body, reshaped camera module, and gold accents, scream luxury.

Display and Multimedia

The OPPO Find X2 Pro features one of the best displays on 2020’s flagship smartphones. Measuring 6.7 inches, the OLED display can output 10bit colors, has a Quad HD+ resolution, run at 120Hz natively, and a touch response rate of 240Hz. It’s color accurate as well, covering 100% of the P3 gamut. It also Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for protection.

With a pixel density of 513 PPI, images shown are incredibly sharp, and colors are vibrant enough without seeming too harsh. Like other OLED displays, blacks are deep, and viewing angles are decent. Do note, however, that running the device at 1440p and 120Hz does deplete the battery quickly. To remedy this, we recommend turning down the resolution to 1080p if you want to keep the high refresh rate.

The front camera is housed in a punch-hole module located in the upper left corner of the device. In our opinion, this is the best placement for the selfie camera, as it does not impede anything when viewing content in landscape view.

Audio-wise, the OPPO Find X2 Pro Lamborghini Edition comes with one of the best stereo speakers on a smartphone. The sounds are incredibly detailed, with a balanced signature. At maximum volume, the highs are well tamed, and the bass does not get distorted. Speaking of volume, they’re also a tad bit louder than your typical smartphone.

It also comes with a limited Lamborghini Edition pair of Enco Free TWS earbuds. The audio quality from the earbuds was above average, but I couldn’t find an excellent seal, no matter how I put them on. It also failed the headbang test, and one of the buds flew out of my ear. The call quality, however, was excellent, and the person on the other end of the call was able to hear my voice clearly.

Camera

The camera specs of the Lamborghini Edition and standard Find X2 Pro are similar. As a refresher, it comes with a 48MP Sony IMX 689 sensor as its primary shooter, a 48MP Sony IMX586 ultra-wide sensor, and a 13MP periscope telephoto lens capable of up to 5x optical zoom.

Perhaps the most interesting camera in the Find X2 Pro’s camera set up is the Periscope lens. It can optically zoom up to 5X, with an option to digitally crop in for a 10X zoom. Using the Periscope lens is incredibly easy, as it wasn’t shaky, able to focus well, and capture a lot of detail – even when digitally zoomed in. Check out the sample below:

As for videos, users can capture up to 4K at 60 FPS. While stabilization and quality were great at 4K, we found that using the Super Steady mode is better overall. The videos still come out detailed, with more stability, while taking up less space.

Performance and Benchmarks

Under the hood, the OPPO Find X2 Pro Lamborghini Edition runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, paired with an Adreno 650 GPU, 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.0. We ran the device through our standard benchmarks and got the following results:

  • AnTuTu V8.4.0 – 610,582
  • Geekbench 5 – 812 (Single-Core), 2,821 (Multi-core)
  • PCMark Work 2.0 – 11,440
  • 3D Mark SSE – 6,775 (OpenGL ES 3.1), 5,789 (Vulkan)
  • AndroBench –  1641 MB/s (Seq. Read), 738.31 MB/s (Seq. Write)

Like the regular OPPO Find X2 Pro, the Lamborghini Edition is an excellent performer, capable of running the most demanding tasks and games. In our AnTuTu testing, it was able to score 600,000+ points, which is among the highest-scoring devices we tested.

OS, UI, and apps

The Find X2 Pro Lamborghini Edition runs on ColorOS 7.1 with a special Supercar Theme laid on top. Icons have sharp outlines and angles to show off the beauty of technology and power. I personally dislike the icon pack used as it’s a bit too bulky for my liking.

It comes with several OPPO apps pre-installed, including the Clone Phone app, Game Space, OPPO Relax, SoLoop, and the Phone Manager. Other pre-installed apps include OfficeSuite, Netflix, and your typical Google apps.

There are three navigation modes, including Swipe Gestures from Both Sides, Virtual buttons, and Swipe Up Gestures. You can also go back to the familiar Virtual buttons if that’s what you’re more comfortable with.

Connectivity and Battery Life

Unlike the regular Find X2 Pro, the Lamborghini Edition only has a single SIM slot. It does, however, keep all its features, including 5G connectivity, Bluetooth 5.1, WiFi 6, and GPS tracking.

The usual connectivity features, such as calls and texts, data and WiFi reception, as well as location services worked flawlessly. That being said, I was not able to test out its 5G capabilities, as my area does not support it yet.

As for the battery, the OPPO Find X2 Pro Lamborghini Edition is powered by two 2,130mAh batteries for a total of 4,260mAh. Since nothing else changed, we should get similar results to the original version. It lasted 9 hours and 3 minutes (60Hz) or 7 hours and 28 minutes (120Hz) in the PCMark Battery test and 19 hours and 45 minutes in our standard video loop test.

Charging the device, took only 40 minutes thanks to its 65W Super VOOC 2.0 Flash Charge support. It does not, however, support wireless charging.

Conclusion

We’ve always found the OPPO Find X2 Pro to be a solid contender in the premium flagship market. It offers users impressive performance, amazing display, great camera quality, and good battery life – which are the most important aspects of a smartphone. While it did fetch a hefty price of PHP 65,990, it was easy to justify since it’s a no-compromise device. That being said, the Lamborghini Edition is more expensive, costing CNY 12,999 or around PHP 91,000.

Thankfully, OPPO has always done been successful with its limited-edition devices, like the original Find X Lamborghini Edition and the Reno Ace Gundam Edition. This iteration is no different, as the collaboration has captured both brands’ theme tastefully. However, with the additional 50% price tag, you must really be a fan of both companies to justify the purchase.
