OPPO just released the Find X3 series. While Europe got the Find X3 Pro, the Find X3 Neo, and the Find X3 Lite, OPPO launched the vanilla Find X3 and the Find X3 Pro in China since the Neo and Lite variants are already present in the country under the Reno5 series. The vanilla OPPO Find X3 is a perfect competitor of the best flagship by Xiaomi: the Mi 11. Both are flagship phones but they do not carry top-tier prices due to a few compromises in their specifications. Is it worth going for the OPPO Find X3 or the Xiaomi Mi 11 is a better choice? This specs comparison will clear your idea.

The most stunning design belongs to the OPPO Find X3. Its “impossible surface” is very attractive with its curves, especially if we look at the camera module. But the Xiaomi Mi 11 comes in a special leather variant which may be the preferred one for several users. Unlike the Xiaomi Mi 11, the OPPO Find X3 is waterproof with the IP68 certification, while its rival does not offer certification against water and dust. Further, the OPPO Find X3 is actually more compact thanks to its smaller display.
The differences are not huge in terms of specifications, but the OPPO Find X3 has a superior display. It is a real 10-bit panel with the LTPO technology (adaptive refresh rate from 5 Hz to 120 Hz) allowing for lower energy consumption, the HDR10+ certification, the BT.2020 standard, and a Quad HD+ resolution. The display has curved edges and a diagonal of 6.7 inches, as well as an in-display fingerprint reader. The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a wider 6.81-inch panel, but it is actually inferior in terms of image quality. On the other hand, it should be sturdier since it is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus.
Specs & Software
If you want the most powerful hardware, you should go for the Xiaomi Mi 11. It is powered by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform, which is actually the best one released by Qualcomm. With the Find X3, you actually get a Snapdragon 870 mobile platform that is an upgrade of the Snapdragon 865+. The chipsets are paired with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage. Xiaomi Mi 11 runs Android 11 customized by MIUI 12, while its opponent has ColorOS 11.2.
On the paper, the OPPO Find X3 is a better camera phone than the Xiaomi Mi 11. It is equipped with two Sony IMX766 main cameras with a 50 MP resolution, one of which is an ultrawide sensor sporting omnidirectional autofocus. Then you get a 13 MP telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom and an amazing 3 MP macro camera with a LED ring that is able to offer up to 60x magnification. Unfortunately, the Xiaomi Mi 11 lacks a telephoto sensor: it has a 108 MP main camera with 8K video recording and OIS, a 13 MP ultrawide sensor, and a 5 MP macro camera.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a slightly bigger 4600 mAh battery, but it is still unclear which one will last more on a single charge since the OPPO Find X3 has just been announced. The Find X3 offers faster wired charging speeds, while the Xiaomi Mi 11 is faster when it comes to wireless charging. Both support reverse wireless charging.
The starting price of the Xiaomi Mi 11 in China is about €600/$720, just like the OPPO Find X3. So which one is worth going for? Well, in my honest opinion, OPPO Find X3 is a more interesting phone. It has a weaker processor, but for the rest, it is actually superior. It is waterproof, it has better cameras and even a better display. Further, the Snapdragon 870 mobile platform is enough to handle every kind of activity with blazing speeds in 2021.
