The noble Oppo Find X2 Neo struggles with its very high RRP

On the plus side of the Find X2 Neo there is no doubt the excellent and very bright 90 Hz AMOLED panel.

The Find X2 Neo looks great. However, the Oppo smartphone receives a lot of criticism in our test, which make the mid-range smartphone appear unattractive close to the targeted RRP of almost 700 Euros.

The Oppo Find X2 Neo is a noble blender, even if it may sound a bit cynical. This is because the middle class smartphone from Oppo remains, despite the high RRP of almost 700 Euros, pure middle class. Not only is the performance of the Find X2 Neo with the Snapdragon 765G in combination with the UFS-2.1 memory and LPDDR4X-RAM not on par with the "performance monsters" in this price segment, but the equipment of the Oppo cell phone also leaves out many premium features.

In this price segment, however, buyers can definitely expect premium features such as an IP rating, WiFi 6 or wireless charging. Especially since "smartphone basics" such as an SD card slot, dual SIM or a 3.5 mm jack connection are also missing. The Find X2 Neo is also only partially convincing when it comes to cameras. Because especially the pictures with the ultra-wide-angle lens will not do justice to a 700 Euro smartphone in 2020 - picture noise is already recognizable in daylight, complex subjects are sometimes artificial and over-sharpened. The Find X2 Neo's front camera also has massive exposure problems when the sky is cloudy, and videos can only be recorded with the IMX586 at 30 fps in UHD resolution.

If you place little value on camera quality on a smartphone and if you are interested in a visually appealing mid-range mobile phone, then you can get a detailed impression of the Find X2 Neo reading our detailed test report on the Oppo smartphone. If you are not afraid of importing from China, you can take a closer look at our review of the Oppo Reno3 Pro instead - the Chinese version of the Find X2 Neo which is a lot more affordable.

My great passion has always been mobile technologies, especially smartphones. As a technology enthusiast, the half-life of my devices is not exactly high and the latest hardware is just good enough - manufacturer or operating system plays a minor role, the main thing is state-of-the-art

Because of my interest in computer games I started studying computer science, became a psychologist, but stayed true to the games and the hardware. For example during my year abroad in London as a games tester at Sega. In my spare time I find a balance between PC games and sports (meanwhile mainly indoor soccer and running after my toddler), playing guitar and building bamboo bikes (well, so far only one under guidance).
