At least on the paper, their overall specifications are actually superior to every Android device released until now.

If you want to get the best Android phone but you are unsure about which one to go for, you can check this specs comparison to learn the differences between Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and OPPO Find X3 Pro.

Given that they are top-tier flagships, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and OPPO Find X3 Pro come with gorgeous designs. I personally prefer the OPPO Find X3 Pro not only because it is more compact, but also because of its curves, especially around the camera module, making the overall aesthetics more elegant. Further, with the OPPO Find X3 Pro, you get a thinner and lighter design. If you want the best build quality, then Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra might satisfy you because of its Gorilla Glass Victus front panel and rear side. Both the phones are waterproof with the IP68 certification (up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes).
It is very hard to establish which phone has the best display not only because their specs are similar, but also because we still had no chance to test the OPPO Find X3 Pro since it has been announced just two days ago. At the moment, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra offers one of the best displays you can find in the smartphone market, and so does the OPPO Find X3 Pro which is able to show one billion colors thanks to 10-bit color depth. The display of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has an additional feature: the S Pen support. Further, its in-display fingerprint reader is ultrasonic, which means better unlock performance.
Specs & Software
OPPO Find X3 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra are powered by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform, but the European version of the Galaxy S21 Ultra has the Exynos 2100 which is actually inferior to the Snapdragon 888 in terms of power management. The OPPO Find X3 Pro has up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage, while the best configuration of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage. The Snapdragon version of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra wins the hardware comparison. The Sammy flagship will get four years of updates and three years of Android major updates, while OPPO actually has inferior update policies.
On the paper, the OPPO Find X3 Pro has a more interesting camera department. It comes with two 50 MP m ain camera (including an ultrawide one), a microlens camera which shoots macro with up to 60x zoom, and a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. With the Galaxy S21 Ultra, you get a 108 MP main sensor, a 10 MP periscope sensor with 10x optical zoom, a 10 MP telephoto sensor, and a 12 MP ultrawide sensor. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has better zoom capabilities in normal photos, while OPPO Find X3 Pro should guarantee better macro shots. For the rest, we wait to test the Find X3 Pro thoroughly in order to give a final verdict.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has a bigger 5000 mAh battery and it should last more on a single charge in most of the scenarios, at least in the variant with Snapdragon 888 inside. On the other hand, the OPPO Find X3 Pro provides faster charging technologies: you get SuperVOOC 2.0 providing fast wired charging with 65W power and AirVOOC for wireless charging with 30W power.
You can actually find the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the OPPO Find X3 Pro at similar prices in the global market: about €1150 ($1199 for the U.S. version of the Galaxy S21 Ultra). It is still too early to establish a rear winner of this comparison and it mostly depends on the users’ needs: the Galaxy S21 Ultra has the S Pen, amazing zoom capabilities, a bigger battery. OPPO Find X3 Pro guarantees an awesome display quality, amazing photos, and faster charging speeds. Which one would you pick?
