While the iPhone 12 Pro Max has exactly the same form factor as the iPhone X released in 2017, the OPPO Find X3 Pro comes with a brand new design, even though the rear camera module reminds of the latest Apple phones. It is a very elegant handset with a higher screen-to-body ratio, curved edges, and a protruding camera module with a very innovative design. While the OPPO Find X3 Pro has a more interesting and innovative look, the iPhone 12 Pro Max actually provides a better build quality. It has a Ceramic Shield back and a stainless steel frame, and it is waterproof up to 6 meters deep.
Despite the iPhone 12 Pro Max has one of the best displays in the whole smartphone market, the OPPO Find X3 Pro promises an even better experience. It provides an awesome image quality with a 10-bit color depth for its AMOLED display, as well as the HDR10+ certification and the BT.2020 standard. Further, it comes with a high refresh rate: up to 120 Hz. The refresh rate is adaptive thanks to the LTPO technology and it can automatically switch from 1 to 120 Hz. The phone even comes with a higher Quad HD+ resolution and an in-display fingerprint reader. The iPhone has a stunning image quality, but it lacks a high refresh rate and QHD+ resolution.
