In comparison to the Find X2 Pro and Find X2 Neo sibling models, the Chinese manufacturer's Lite model is a clear downgrade in terms of optics as well haptics. With the classy exterior of the Find X2 Neo - high quality, thin and sophisticated in appearance - the concept of the Lite model from Oppo would have been quite coherent. Compared to the Snapdragon 865 devices in the price range around 500 Euros (~$562), such as the Pocophone F2 Pro or the Nubia RedMagic 5G, the Find X2 Lite would have positioned itself with its premium look. However, the Lite variant of the Find X2 series has plastic on the back, and the frame is also made of this material (or at least covered with a plastic coating), which doesn't exactly contribute to its perceived quality. In addition, the bezels around the OLED panel are quite pronounced, so that the ratio of the screen to the overall front side of the Find X2 Lite is only 84% - in comparison, the Find X2 Neo reaches a ratio of 90%.
What remains is a solid mid-range smartphone without premium features and with clear deficits in terms of cameras, because from the rear quad-camera setup, only the main camera offers any real added value. The 8 MP ultra wide-angle lens is probably the same as in the Neo model; at least the quality is on a similarly poor level. The other two lenses of the quad-camera setup are only used to take photos with filters.
