“Let the bullet fly for a while”, talk about OPPO Find X3 Pro in a month

There is a fairly classic long shot in "Let the Bullets Fly", which is about the rivalry of Huang Silang, Zhang Mazi and Tang Shiye. The effect is very cool, and the audience is enjoyable, but they paid a lot and overcome it. a lot of.

▲A famous scene in “Let the Bullets Fly''.

Director Jiang Wen also revealed in an interview: "The Hongmen Banquet scene. Every time I hang a one-thousand-foot film, three machines shoot at the same time, and three thousand-foot rotate at the same time. For this purpose, a circular track is made. It must be placed on top, and it must be synchronized. Each machine needs to be pushed when it rotates. There is also a man to operate the machine, and a man to control the focus. A machine must have at least 5 people. These 5 people walk in sync, and they can’t make a sound. They just have to rehearse."

The three thousand-foot film was turned at the same time. When I saw this, I was not distressed by the 15 staff members, but how much money and time was spent on the film for this scene.

In fact, a slight compromise in the effect of this scene will not make this original film with a clear intention to become dull, but Jiang Wen's extreme requirements for the production have created this classic moment on the screen.

In the previous interview with Li Yingming, general manager of OPPO Find product line, he mentioned that making mobile phones is an art of choice. This time we want to talk about the "icing on the cake" and "not strong perception" that have been invested in a lot of human and financial resources.

In fact, the effect of these efforts in exchange is a bit similar to "the fragrance of wine is not afraid of the depth of the alley." There are many unique points on Find X3 Pro, and it may be difficult for consumers to pick it out from the sea of ​​machines. If you don’t compare it carefully, It is also difficult to have a real feeling. But as long as you feel the contrast yourself, you will be easily surrounded by the "scent of wine."

"Let the bullets fly for a while" in the movie refers to waiting for a while before drawing conclusions and watching the changes. For Zhang Mazi, it can be said to be strategizing. This sentence can also be used on the OPPO Find X3 series. After using it for a long time and experiencing it for a long time, the perspective of perception has broken away from the limitations of "first-sighted pleasure" and has become more detailed.

Is the "2+2" imaging system enough?

The imaging system of Find X3 Pro is composed of two main cameras and two special lenses. Even if it is not the most interesting "microscope lens", the other three lenses cover the 15mm~75mm focal length (wide angle, medium focus, Telephoto), basically covering most of the scenes, even many people, of course, this also includes me.

To be precise, the dual main cameras are using IMX766 sensor, 50 million pixels, 1/1.56 inch photosensitive area, support 1.07 billion color capture (about 10bit full link, to be discussed with the screen), is for ultra-wide angle and For wide-angle use. The other is actually a double (about 50mm focal length) lens.

Among them, the ultra-wide-angle lens includes a "free-form surface", which can prevent optical distortion under the ultra-wide angle of view, and strive to have the same high quality as the wide-angle lens. According to the actual measurement, the Find X3 Pro dual main camera has almost the same performance on the edge. Even under the complicated light source at night, the choices of highlights and dark parts are similar, just like a zoom lens on a camera.

▲ Left: super wide angle, right: main camera.

The collaboration between each lens, or hybrid zoom (specifically 2x, 5x) has a very flexible algorithm. When the light is sufficient, this 2x lens will be actively used, and even under strong light, the 2x telephoto lens will be forced to use when zooming. Once the light is poor (even under complex indoor light) or blocked, the main camera IMX766 will be more actively used for high-pixel cropping. Such a set of "computational zoom" is actually a combination of practicality and image quality. , Portability and other needs.

If you want to achieve close switching and cooperation, you still need to have a more consistent imaging effect, otherwise it is easy to find the difference in the tendency of the final imaging. Find X3 Pro These three lenses have the same imaging color tendency. It is difficult to find the difference in daily life. If it is not for testing, I frequently use my fingers to block the 2x telephoto lens. I may not be able to detect the 2x state after using it for another month. Find X3 Pro will be "stealing the sky and changing the day" behavior.

Find X3 Pro did not follow two major trends in imaging. One was that it did not seek a joint name with a traditional imaging manufacturer, and the other was that it did not pursue the big and complete (that is, periscope telephoto).

▲ Main photo

It’s similar to my experience when I started Find X3 Pro for the first time. During this month, I rarely encountered scenes that needed to trigger a 5x telephoto or more. When I encountered “subtraction”, I usually opened 2x, 5x to solve the problem. The demand for telephoto is not high. Of course, there is a periscope telephoto, which may make the recording at hand more arbitrary, but 5x and super telephoto, here is the difference between 95 points and 98 points.

OPPO's strength in images has always been good. It is enough to stick to your own taste in images. The Reno series and Find series (except the first generation) are very suitable for daily shooting. The imaging style of the Find X3 Pro imaging system has always continued OPPO's consistent imaging proposition. The colors are bright and the atmosphere is lively. It is enough to please the eyeballs straight out. As for the real restoration, it is better to leave it to a professional camera.

▲ The APS-C format camera on the left is straight out, and on the right is the Find X3 Pro shooting. Here only color comparison is done, and the image quality is not considered. In fact, in retrospect, the one on the right is more in line with the scene in mind at that time.

Whether I use Find X3 Pro or Reno I have used before, I will actively turn on the built-in "AI scene enhancement" and use algorithms to "enhance" the recorded photos. Relatively speaking, OPPO's built-in algorithm is more restrained, and will not excessively increase the brightness of the color and offset the hue. It will always be maintained within a reasonable range. After processing, you will not be spit on the social network directly. "It's been repaired too much."

The three (dual main cameras + telephoto) lens system of Find X3 Pro, to summarize briefly, it is practical and easy to use, rather than pursuing the ultimate performance of extreme scenes.

The 60-times microscope lens really followed the "Curious" style. I thought that this lens would be forgotten in the "Secondary Menu" after the freshness, but in the end it was defeated by my curiosity.

Whenever I encounter something new that I haven't photographed, I will tire of opening the microscope lens from the secondary menu to take a closer look to see what it looks like in the microscopic world. The resulting photos often have quite good results. Kind of an eye-opening feeling.

However, the microscope has a shortcoming in imaging, that is, it will make strong corrections to the white balance, which will affect the rendering of some material colors, but the flaws are not concealed. It is really fun.

▲ Different materials under the microscope lens, 1 is watermelon, 2 is sponge, 3 is watermelon rind, 4 is RMB anti-counterfeiting silver thread, 5 is clothing under backlight, 6 is backlight leaf, 7 is the surface of leather boots, 8 is Cherry blossoms on Japanese yen, 9 is the surface of the iron pan.

Recently, the necessity of ultra-telephoto has been discussed. For consumers, if there is one, it is 1 and if there is no, it is 0. However, a good-quality periscope lens often takes up a lot of internal space and a certain amount of weight, and it is difficult to be sufficiently thin and light. A "big and complete" imaging system can indeed meet more needs, but it is still not perfect, at least it has lost the balance of the whole machine.

If you care about the coverage of focal lengths above 5 times, the "2+2" imaging system of Find X3 Pro falls into the "not enough" range. In my case, looking at the photos of this month, wide-angle is mostly, ultra-wide-angle is second, 2x zoom is third, and 5x is a little bit sporadic. Oh, by the way, the number of microscope photos is about the same as the 2x zoom photos.

The "2+2" imaging system of Find X3 Pro is enough for me.

LTPO screens today and 1.07 billion colors in the future

This screen of OPPO Find X3 Pro can be said to have the most cutting-edge technology in the industry.

Regarding the popularization and expansion of LTPO material screens, you can check the previous " iPhone 13 high screen refresh, stable? "This article, the overlapping parts, I won't go into details in this article. Here I will focus on the actual experience of this LTPO screen on Find X3 Pro.

In a word, it is not much different from the experience of ordinary 120Hz high refreshing. But isn't the advancement of science and technology just making you unable to feel?

The Find X3 Pro screen has two smart switching properties: "Smart Resolution" and "Adaptive Dynamic Frequency Conversion", which means that in terms of resolution and refresh rate, Find X3 Pro will judge and set itself according to the scene.

Smart Resolution Here, with my naked eyes, the change in resolution is almost imperceptible. One is because this 6.7-inch screen will still have 315ppi even at FHD+ resolution, which is fine enough. The second is that the ColorOS intelligent switching mechanism is relatively mature and difficult to distinguish.

However, under the two settings, the endurance status is still relatively obvious. When limited to QHD+ resolution, with the same intensity of use, it will use nearly 10% more power per day than in the smart state.

According to OPPO, this LTPO screen on Find X3 Pro can switch between 1Hz~120Hz and 120 gears. With the corresponding software algorithm optimization, there will be a 50% reduction in power consumption in theory. This lowest 1Hz was also released via OTA before Find X3 Pro was launched.

However, it is difficult to determine the real frame rate of the LTPO screen without ROOT and special tools at this stage. The display screen refresh rate option in the developer options can only display the current highest refresh rate. At the same time, without system-level software control, it is also difficult to "control variables" for comparative testing.

But in actual experience, from my krypton gold eyes, I can hardly notice the change in refresh rate, but the battery life has indeed improved. The same use, keeping the screen on for 4~5 hours, is about 10% more margin. From the mechanism of action, it probably accumulates from the screen staying here, and from the effect point of view, it is far more obvious than imagined.

It's just that Find X3 Pro has so little flaws in its frequency conversion strategy, and it has so little "crude". The most obvious is to switch to video applications (Station B, Oil Pipe, Tencent, etc.). The frame rate of the screen will be locked at 60Hz. When you jump directly from 120Hz to 60Hz, you will have a more obvious perception.

The same situation needs to be a little more delicate on OnePlus 9 Pro, and only when the video is horizontally screened, will it change to the same frame rate as the video. But they are all ColorOS. It is estimated that changing the status quo is an OTA problem.

If the LTPO screen will be the current technology, then the full link 10bit is laying out the future.

The concept of full link 10bit sounds very complicated, but it can be simply understood as a one-stop process of collecting, processing, and displaying 1.07 billion colors, but it is currently limited to Find X3 and Find X3 Pro, which is considered an exclusive feature and cannot be extended for the time being. To the entire Android ecosystem.

During this month, I will also use other Android devices. If you switch back and forth and constantly compare, you will have a more obvious perception of the 1.07 billion color rendering.

It's like if a colleague in the office sprays Six God perfume, you will be "bullied" by its unique fragrance, but if you have been in this environment, it will be difficult for you to experience it anymore. Here, the thrill of Six God. The same is true for the 1.07 billion colors of Find X3 Pro. I have been using it all the time and the perception is not strong, but after switching other devices, I will find that the colors are missing.

The full-link 10bit feature is still not a particularly prominent point even if it is placed in the small circle of consumer electronics enthusiasts. It is like a Kryptonian who has not yet arrived on the earth. It has to wait for changes in the general environment before it can be used. strength. And this big environment cannot be changed by OPPO alone, it still has to wait for manufacturers to promote it together. And now the full-link 10bit implemented by OPPO equipment is more like planting a seed, which will become a tree in a few years.

Strike a balance between design and performance

Even now, in the first half of the first half of the year, the flagships, machine kings, and light of all have all shined, but the appearance of Find X3 Pro is still very recognizable, especially the "impossible" curved surface on the back.

Whether you say that the "curved surface" is unique or against the trend, it hides the camera module very well, without the hard line outline, and the direct transition makes the whole back more simple. In addition, compared to the "straight-forward" design, the curved surface originally has a hand-feeling addition, and it is more comfortable to touch and hold, which will add a lot to the design of Find X3 Pro.

I dare not say whether this design will become a "public lover", but after seeing it for a long time and using it for a long time, I can feel its beauty.

However, this kind of "beauty" transmission cannot simply be transmitted with pictures and words. For those who have not experienced the back surface of Find X3 Pro, they still need to go to the offline physical store to experience it. This aesthetic transmission cost is somewhat Slightly higher.

Not only is the cost of communication high, but the glass back of Find X3 Pro's "continuous curved surface" is also expensive. It uses complicated glass hot forging to form a one-piece curved surface, while the camera part uses a CNC hole to create a flat surface on the curved surface. And the processing of the two is different, the back panel is matte texture, and the camera module is a bright surface.

Counting the plain skin version of Universe Mocha, the Find X3 series has 4 colors and 3 touches. Among them, the mirror black is integrated with a bright surface, and it has a full sense of the future. The foggy blue and condensed white take into account the hand feeling. The main feature of the universe is the skin-friendly texture.

Carefully understand that the back of the Find X3 series has considerable details, but the beauty brought by these design ideas, the tactility presented by different materials, and the investment in the craft behind it, are difficult to convey in the simplest way, and it is also very difficult to convey. It is difficult to be recognized at a glance, and it takes a little time to subtly.

In terms of data, the thickness of the Find X3 Pro body is 8.26mm, and the weight is 193g, which is not heavy. If combined with the "curved" design, it feels lighter and thinner than the visual. In this body, there is a combination of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 flagship processor and LPDDR5, UFS3.1 flash memory, which is also the normal operation of current flagships.

I'm not a heavy gamer. I rarely spend one to two hours on the game. I use it on and off to pass the time. Therefore, I prefer turn-based games. It is best to maintain 15 minutes per game. Previously, it was "Peace Elite" that completed this important task, but as the ranks improved, the time of each round became shorter and shorter. It was originally a battle royale mode, but gradually became a jumping game. More importantly, most of the "Peace Elite" games are now running at 60fps, which cannot reflect the pleasure of high screen refresh.

During the period of using Find X3 Pro, my eyes turned to "Ace Fighter", turn-based, within 15 minutes of each round, and optimized for high screen refresh, in line with the demand. Find X3 Pro's high-quality and high-refresh state is almost maintained at 120fps. As long as the technology is good and it is not killed, it will not enter the animation playback and drop frames (game setting problem).

In addition, turn-based small-scale battles such as "Ace Warriors" require a lot of timely response from mobile phones. Whether it is playing guerrilla, reloading, suppressing, or sniping, if the response is not enough, it is undoubtedly to "give the head."

In addition to the Find X3 Pro core providing sufficient performance, the overclocking response O-Sync based on LTPO technology can adapt to the time of different frame synthesis, speed up the synchronization frequency between the screen and the processor, and can render the chip faster The picture is sent to the screen, and the reaction to the game will be more follow-up and quicker. In "Ace Warrior", the characters are more flexible, the skill release is more calm, and the record is improved.

As for "Original God", which stands at the top of Android's performance requirements, Find X3 Pro performs similarly to other flagships. It still can't hold it down. It drops frames when entering the city and drops frames as soon as it flies. The field performance is slightly better, and the combat combo will be small Stuck, but after these are reduced to a medium quality, the frame rate will stabilize a lot. The performance of the Android flagship phones "Yuan Shen" is not much different, and it is not very related to the mobile phone and 888. The most important thing is that the optimization of "Yuan Shen" is relatively general.

The balance between design and performance is difficult to grasp, but there is still a priority in it. Lightness and thinness are the top priority, performance is the top priority, and performance is the top priority. It is now the ultimate gaming phone, it is difficult to guarantee a thin and light design. , And thin and light design is the priority, that will be the balance point of most flagship smartphones now.

Find X3 Pro also follows this concept and releases its due performance as much as possible in terms of ensuring the appearance of hard core parameters (weight, thickness). At the same time, the "impossible surface" adds points to the design and feel, while the LTPO-based O-Sync overclocking response characteristics add points to the performance. Adding the scores of these two parts, the advantage of Find X3 Pro comes out.

65W + 30W charging combination changed habits

Find X3 Pro is still equipped with the 65W flash charge of SuperVOOC 2.0, which is common in OPPO mobile phones. At the same time, it also makes up for the small regret that the previous generation did not have wireless charging, and supports up to 30W.

Support for wireless charging has changed my daily habit of using the device to a large extent. When I leave it at work, I will be in a state of recharging at all times, without the shackles of cables, so I am much more free to use. Find X3 Pro's 30W wireless charging is only a private protocol for the time being, but it also supports the standard Qi protocol, but the power is lower.

More wireless charging is actually using the fragmented time to replenish electricity. It is really necessary to quickly replenish electricity, and the best choice is wired fast charging. They actually have a complementary relationship. When you want to temporarily recharge the battery quickly, the continuous and stable input of 65W can basically meet the moderate use of a day in less than half an hour.

As long as I charge fast, the battery life anxiety cannot catch up with me. Given that the current battery technology has not been innovated, and the effective way to increase the charging speed, the power of 65W is already an excellent level, but it is far from the extreme, and the power of 120W is fast. Charging is no longer so "niche".

It is true that the Find series bears the "exploration" of OPPO products, and it seems that the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 cannot match it. However, it is important to know that the charging experience of 120W in mass production is not obvious from 30W to 65W, and the 120W charger is much larger and heavier than the current 65W charger.

OPPO is not without 120W charging technology (125W to be precise, which is close to mass production), but from the Find X3 Pro and even Find X3 series, considering various factors such as stability, compatibility, and market, 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 can still be used. hit.

From Find X to Find X2, and then to the current Find X3 series, Find has become more and more stable and the application of technology more mature. Find is a series that tends to be used for exploration regardless of sales or cost. Find X and Find X2 Pro have high product power and pricing.

When it comes to the Find X3 Pro generation, OPPO has relatively restrained when making products. Except for the screen and dual main cameras, Find X3 Pro does not pursue too much "first", so the weight and thickness of this generation are all in the price. A reasonable level is more friendly to mass consumers.

Will it be the key to the "oasis"?

The OPPO Find X3 Pro "bullet" has "flyed" in my hands for nearly a month, and it has made me feel a little bit more about it. For OPPO, it is an "ideal for ten years", integrating many of OPPO's long-established technologies with a little bit of exploration for the future.

▲ In the movie "Top Player", the key obtained after clearing the level.

In "Ready Player One", James Halliday, the founder of "Oasis", set up three levels. After completing each level, you will get a key. All three are linked together to control the "Oasis." It is the spiritual world of all human beings in the movie.

OPPO Find X3 Pro is here for me. I would rather describe it as a key to the future "oasis". It has the achievements of OPPO's ten-year accumulation of technology, and it also bears a little shadow of future products.

In this "oasis" of the smartphone industry, wanting to control it is not as "easy" as the protagonist Wade of the movie, through three levels, and three keys.

But after you have a key, you need to constantly try and find new "levels" in the next industry. The 10bit full link and LTPO screen on the Find X3 series are the new levels found by OPPO. Can you get new levels? The key to the level may have to let the bullet continue to fly for a while.
