The best and most impressive design belongs to the OPPO Find X3 Pro, which even won the Red Dot Design Award 2021. Its rear glass is made with a very complex heating process lasting 40 hours and involving temperatures up to 700 °C, in order to achieve perfect curves and the Gradient Arc design for the camera module. The Find X3 Pro is also the only waterproof phone of the trio, with the IP68 certification. On the other hand, the OPPO Find X3 Lite is the thinnest and lightest phone of the trio and, unlike its two internal rivals, it features a flat display. The OPPO Find X3 Neo still comes with an amazing design: thin, lightweight, and original.
The OPPO Find X3 Pro has the best display of the trio and one of the best smartphone displays in the whole market. It shows up to one billion colors thanks to a true 10-bit color depth, it has a Quad HD+ resolution, an adaptive refresh rate with up to 120 Hz (thanks to the LTPO technology), and more. The OPPO Find X3 Neo does not come with a 10-bit color depth and it has a lower Full HD+ resolution, but it retains the HDR10+ certification, it has a high 1100 nit peak brightness and a 90 Hz refresh rate. With the OPPO Find X3 Lite you get a 90 Hz AMOLED display too, but it lacks HDR10+ and the brightness is lower compared to the Find X3 Neo.
OPPO Find X3 Pro and Neo are two flagships powered by the Snapdragon 888 and the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, respectively. The OPPO Find X3 Lite is instead a mid-ranger with the Snapdragon 765G, the same as the predecessor Find X3 Lite. However, I tried the Find X3 Lite and for normal users (daily usage), it is hard to distinguish the performance difference, unless you play advanced games. All the phones run Android 11 with ColorOS 11.1 on top.
OPPO Find X3 Pro is the most innovative phone and the most advanced one in terms of cameras. It boasts a dual 50 MP main camera paired with a 13 MP telephoto sensor and a 3 MP macro camera with 60x magnification which works like a microscope. Right after, we got the OPPO Find X3 Neo, still, a high-end camera phone with a 50 MP Sony IMX766 main camera, but the secondary sensors are inferior: you get a telephoto sensor, a 16 MP ultrawide camera, and a 2 MP macro camera. The OPPO Find X3 Lite is a midrange camera phone with a 64 MP main camera: it lacks OIS and telephoto.
OPPO Find X3 Pro and Neo have the same 4500 mAh battery and they provide a similar battery life, while The Find X3 Lite has a smaller 4300 mAh unit. With the OPPO Find X3 Pro, you get 65W fast charging and wireless charging, while Find X3 Neo and Lite only feature 65W wired charging.
OPPO Find X3 Pro is priced at €1150 globally, Find X3 Neo costs €799, and Find X3 Lite has a €499 starting price (prices vary depending on the market). At the end of the day, they belong to three different segments: with the Find X3 Neo, you can be satisfied even if you are an above-average user, thanks to astonishing cameras and flagship hardware. But if you want one of the best flagships of 2021 with the best camera, display, hardware, and additional features, Find X3 Pro is your choice. The OPPO Find X3 Lite is an overpriced mid-ranger, but it offers some interesting advantages such as a very sleek design and provides a great overall experience to everyone. The vanilla Find X3 is currently unavailable in the global market.
