Oppo Find X5 Lite review verdict: The low-priced Oppo smartphone has an identity problem
The otherwise well-made Find X5 Lite has the feel of a US$ 250 smartphone due to the plastic frame and plastic back, rather than the feel of a device in the US$ 500 range. This is further reinforced by the fact that the back of our review sample could not withstand denting under selective applications of pressure. On the other hand, this shortcoming can be overcome through the use of a standard cover. The relatively wide frame edges around the OLED panel are rather conspicuous even with a protective case - the Find X5 Lite's "chin" in particular stands out a lot. In numerical terms: only about 84.9% of the front can be attributed to the display, which falls into the category of a cheap mid-range phone.
On top of these shortcomings, the Oppo phone also lacks certain features that buyers in this price range may well expect. These include IP certification against dust or water, a dual-speaker system or a brighter display. The screen brightness of the Find X5 Lite is on a solid level with a maximum of 583 cd/m², but the competition is noticeably brighter.
Those looking for a mid-range phone with very fast charging times should take a closer look at our detailed review of Oppo's Find X5 Lite. Then again, the sister model realme GT 2 also offers SUPERVOOC with up to 65 watts, along with significantly more power and stereo sound. Otherwise, we recommend our review of the handy Xiaomi 12X in the upper mid-range.
