The Oppo Find X5 Pro isn't perfect but it's easily the best Oppo phone thanks to an attractive display, fast performance, and a great main camera. 80W wired charging means it takes less than half an hour to recharge, which is remarkable too.

Its 6.7-inch AMOLED panel looks great, with a decent refresh rate of 120Hz and maximum brightness of 1,300 nits. Camera-wise, you get a 50MP f/1.7 lens for the primary sensor, along with another 50MP f/2.2 snapper for the ultrawide, boasting a 110-degree field of view.

Reasons to avoid

-

No IP rating

Aside from IP-certification, the Oppo Find N2 Flip looks as though it was purpose-built to thwart Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 4 at every turn.

A zero-gap folding design capable of withstanding double the number of folds as the Flip 4 leads the charge, a larger cover display than any other clamshell foldable on the market expands functionality beyond what's possible by its competitors and it's more affordable than even the baseline Galaxy Z Flip 4, despite packing in comparable performance, twice the storage and a much larger battery.

Speaking of battery, the Find N2 Flip boasts the largest (4,300mAh) and the fastest charging (44W) of any clamshell foldable, at the time of writing.

There are a capable pair of rear-facing cameras – a 50MP main and an 8MP ultrawide sensor – which, thanks to the N2 Flip's huge 3.26-inch portrait cover display, can be used to snap high-quality selfies and video, with ease.

The N2 Flip is also one of the company's first phones to boast a Samsung-matching four years of OS updates and five years of security updates.

The new best Oppo phone

Specifications

Release date: March 2022
Weight: 196g
Dimensions: 160.3 x 72.6 x 8.7mm
OS: Android 12
Screen size: 6.55-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 2400

RAM: 8/12GB
Storage: 128GB/256GB
Battery: 4,800mAh
Rear camera: 50MP + 13MP + 50MP
Front camera: 32MP

Reasons to buy

+
Bright and vivid screen
+
Good battery life

Reasons to avoid

-
Little expensive
-
No waterproofing

The Oppo Find X5 offers a high-quality experience at a premium mid-range price (which continues to drop). With a great look that's rarely troubled by fingerprints (especially in black), it looks sleek and appealing. That comes at a price with no waterproofing but providing you're careful, it's worth it.

A gorgeous 6.55-inch AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz means this is a great phone to look at, while a triple-lens rear camera means photos look pretty great too. Even in low-light conditions, you're guaranteed superb shots, although don't rely on the 2x optical zoom for anything more than portrait-mode shots.

Speedy performance and 5G support round off a remarkable phone that packs a lot in for a more reasonable price than you would expect.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro

Great quality all-rounder

Specifications

Release date: July 2022
Weight: 183g
Dimensions: 161.2 x 74.2 x 7.3mm
OS: Android 12
Screen size: 6.7-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 2412
CPU: MediaTek Dimension 8100-Max
RAM: 8/12GB
Storage: 256GB
Battery: 4,500mAh
Rear camera: 50MP + 8MP + 2MP
Front camera: 32MP

Reasons to buy

+
Great performance for the price
+
Good-looking display

Reasons to avoid

-
Awkward design
-
Weak secondary cameras 

With a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel sporting a 120Hz refresh rate, the Oppo Reno 8 Pro immediately looks attractive for anyone wanting to watch movies on the move or play games. Embedded within that display is a reliably speedy fingerprint scanner. 

Speed is certainly the Oppo Reno 8 Pro's strong point. Using the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 MAX, there's high-end performance that's not quite as speedy as the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, but still more than good enough. 256GB of storage is a useful touch and the main camera uses the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor well; even if its other cameras are a little weak. 

Throw in speedy 80W fast charging and there's a lot to like about the Oppo Reno 8 Pro.
