Oppo Find X3 Lite: The smallest and most affordable model in Oppo's new flagship family
The Oppo Find X3 Lite is entering the highly competitive mid-range. This means that a good configuration is a must. The manufacturer is also aware of that and equips its 6.43-inch device with the Snapdragon 765G, a 90 Hz OLED panel, and a 65-watt power adapter.
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).
My fascination for computers started with the C64. Since then, I’ve put everything that comes my way in terms of hardware through its paces. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and the first PC with an 8088 CPU, my list of projects has grown increasingly longer. For more than 20 years now I have also turned my hobby into my profession and have been active in the mobile section of Notebookcheck since 2021. Before that, I worked as a hardware editor for IDG Media (tecChannel.de) and VNU Business Publications (PC professional), among others.
I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
