OPPO Find X: 5 Reasons To Choose This Innovative Oppo Flagship Phone Over Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

Why pick the Samsung Galaxy S9 when you could have the OPPO Find X?


The OPPO Find X features an edge-to-edge display and is one of the first devices to depart from a design featuring a notch to house the internal camera and sensors. You would be forgiven, however, to confuse the OPPO Find X from a distance with the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, but here are five reasons why you should pick the new OPPO flagship opposed to the Samsung device.

Camera and Design

As mentioned earlier, the OPPO Find X is a truly edge-to-edge design, or at least as close to it as we can get with current technology. Sure, there’s a thin bezel around the edge of the device to actually attach the screen to and a place to rest your fingers whilst holding the device, but for all intensive purposes when compared to other devices like the Pixel 2 XL and Galaxy S9 Plus, the OPPO Find X is bezel-less. While it was Samsung that pushed the boat out and introduced the concept of dropping the top and bottom bezels on a device to depart from the traditional design we had become accustomed to, the Samsung Galaxy S8 sparked a revolution in design amongst the smartphone OEM’s. Many looked to take what Samsung started one step further and eradicate the top bezel and opt for a notch that would house the internal sensors for face recognition and front-facing camera. The most popular implementations of this are the iPhone X and Essential Phone.

What the OPPO Find X offers is something completely different by way of a retractable front-facing camera that slides up with from the rear of the device when needed.

Housed in the slide-out section of the device is a 20-megapixel and 16-megapixel f/2.0 dual camera setup that offers AI-driven scene recognition to automatically detect and adjust the camera to the best settings depending on what you’re pointing it at.



The OPPO Find X also has a bigger battery at 3730mAh when compared to the 3500mAh capacity of the Galaxy S9 Plus. For a flagship pushing a 6+ inch screen, you don’t have to look far on the internet to see the various forums populated with people having issues with battery on the S9 Plus. Despite 200mAh not being a massive improvement over the 3500mAh of the S9 Plus, it could just be that difference between getting a full day use or not.


Not only does the OPPO Find X have the Galaxy S9 Plus beat when it comes to the spec sheet, it also has a bigger display when compared against the 6.2-inches of the Galaxy S9 Plus that offers 1440×2960 pixels to achieve an 84.2% screen-to-body ratio. The OPPO Find X has a massive 6.42-inch screen at 1080×2340 resolution but offers a huge 87.0% screen-to-body ratio.


The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus starts at Rs.59,499 for the 64GB model whereas the OPPO Finx X is Rs.59,990 for 256GB of internal storage. To get the equivalent spec in an S9 Plus, you’ll need to be paying a whopping Rs.71,000 for the 256GB model.


The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus falls short on the spec sheet in a number of areas. The OPPO Find X has more RAM at 8GB than the 6GB in the Samsung device. While anything over 4GB of RAM in a smartphone at this point is overkill, it does provide the OPPO Find X with significant more future proofing and the longevity of the device to be more than that of the Galaxy S9 Plus. The Find X is also pushing more megapixels in both the front and rear facing cameras that will come in handy for post-editing if you tend to crop your pictures.
