Oppo Find X3 Lite: The smallest and most affordable model in Oppo's new flagship family
Oppo's new Find X3 flagship family is launching with three smartphone models. The smallest and most affordable of them is the mid-range Find X3 Lite that is officially priced at 449 Euros (~$536). With the Snapdragon 765G, the 6.43-incher is equipped with the same SoC that is also used by strong mid-range competitors like the Google Pixel 4a 5G. The Find X3 lineup is rounded off by the Find X3 Neo (6.5-inch, Snapdragon 865, 799 Euros (~$953)) and the top model Find X3 Pro (6.7-inch, Snapdragon 888, 1,049 Euros (~$1,251)).
Oppo's 5G-capable mid-range smartphone delivers an overall good impression in the test. Its bright OLED display with its 90 Hz refresh rate is particularly compelling. The Find X3 Lite also scores points with its 65-watt fast-charging power adapter that fully recharges the 4,300 mAh battery in just under 40 minutes. However, the smartphone doesn't support wireless charging. We also expected a bit more from the 64 MP quad-camera setup.
Plastic or glass back cover depending on the case color
If you buy the Find X3 Lite in the "Starry Black" or "Astral Blue" color variants, the smartphone's back is made of a multilayer polymer that not only looks stylish but also provides a good grip for the fingers due to its slightly roughened surface. Those who want the Find X3 Lite with a glass back instead of a polymer one have to choose the "Galactic Silver" color variant, but that means accepting a somewhat higher weight (180 grams instead of the 172 grams of the models with the plastic back cover).
