Oppo is on a mission to make 5G more affordable. To do so, the brand has therefore declined its new range in three models: the Find X2 Pro , the Find X2 Neo and the Find X2 Lite . Now is the time to take a look at the smaller model.
To put things in context, it may be useful to remember that the Find X2 Pro, Find X2 Neo, Find X2 Lite together form the new range of the Oppo brand.
Three devices that are quite different from each other, but still share a lot in common.
So we will certainly come back to the differences between these three devices in a dedicated video, but in the meantime you will be able to discover the Find X2 Lite through this grip.
Packaging & Accessories
When launching a range, it is essential to maintain a certain consistency from one model to another.
Oppo has understood this and it can be felt right down to the Find X2 Lite box.
The Find X2 Lite is therefore delivered in a box that looks like two drops of water like that of its two big brothers. No visual, we just find the name of the brand and the model on the hood, with the added bonus of a focus on 5G.
Because indeed, just like the Pro and the Neo, the Find X2 Lite has the good idea of being compatible with the next telecommunications standard. And if 5G is not yet officially launched in France, it should develop rapidly in the years to come.
And there, at least, you will be quiet and you will therefore not need to change phones to take advantage of the standard.
When you open the box, you come across another box. The same as in our previous unboxing. It contains the phone's documentation, but also the pin allowing access to the card door.
The phone sits underneath, still wrapped in protective film. And there, unsurprisingly, Oppo chose instead the focus on the 5G modem, but also on the compatibility of the battery with the VOOC and on the photo module. A module composed of 4 sensors.
The rest of the contents of the box are similar to that of the Find X2 Neo and we will therefore find a charging cable, a block compatible with 30W fast charging and a hands-free kit.

Design & Ergonomics
Broadly speaking, the recipe remains unchanged. If the Find X2 Lite obviously does not display the level of finish of a Find X2 Pro or a Find X2 Neo, it remains very elegant.
Elegant, but also very comfortable in the hand thanks to a contained weight. We will also appreciate the finesse of the case which will allow it to be forgotten once in the pocket.
Unsurprisingly, the Find X2 Lite skips the glass and the back of the case is therefore made of plastic. The finishes are nonetheless neat and Oppo has even sought to reproduce the mirror effect of the Find X2 Neo in order to maintain a certain cohesion within the range.
The punched screen does not answer the call either. It remains the prerogative of the two largest models and Oppo has therefore turned to a notch in the shape of a drop of water. Very discreet, the latter should not however bother us much on a daily basis.
The display / front ratio remains very correct and Oppo has made sure to reduce the borders surrounding the phone panel as much as possible. In the end, we therefore have a good balance and this should once again result in increased comfort in use.
Not much to say about ergonomics. The buttons are placed in the same places as the other models in the range and the only notable difference ultimately comes from the connection.
Unlike the Find X2 Pro and the Find X2 Neo, the Find X2 Lite is actually not limited to its USB Type-C connector and it therefore has a headphone jack. The latter is located at the lower edge and it should fill the hearts of fans of wired headphones and headsets with joy.
Another surprise and not the least, despite its positioning, the Find X2 Lite is equipped with a fingerprint reader placed under the screen. And I really didn't expect it.

If the Find X2 Lite does not offer the level of finish of a Neo or a Pro, it does not lack charm.
In fact, it is even surprising in more ways than one. And even more considering its selling price. 5G smartphones at € 449 are not really running the streets and we could have expected a lot of compromises, but that does not seem to be the case here.
At least not at first glance. It will of course be necessary to wait for my complete test to know what the Find X2 Lite really has in the belly.
