By LucyEva 1 month ago

With the arrival of Vivo Nex S and Oppo Find X, the mobile phone industry has moved one step forward. Both devices come with the exceptional all-screen design while removing the notch on the top, which was active in the flagships like Apple iPhone X and Huawei P20 Pro. In addition to that, both are featuring minimal bezels.

But best of all, both the Vivo Nex S and Oppo Find X introducing novelty pop-up cameras, for providing the futuristic look and feel. Here, we are going to compare both mobile phone from different brands, so you can check which one is leading in which department.

Design Comparison

Oppo Find X and Vivo Nex S both are composed of glass front and back, well supported by a high-quality metal frame. The glass is almost consistent on the back of the Oppo’s Find X, with no cameras to break up the finish. The volume keys are on the left, the power switch is on the right of the device, and single speaker, USB-C port, and the SIM tray are located at the bottom. Although, there is no earphone jack. Oppo Find X weight is 186 grams to be precise, but still, it’s not difficult to handle due to its curved design.

On the other hand, Vivo Nex S is slightly taller, wider, and slimmer, but still, it is heavier than the Find X with 199 grams of weight. It luckily includes a headphone jack on the top, whereas there a USB-C port and speaker at the bottom of the device.

Sadly, no one has an IP rating. So be careful while using the device for underwater conditions.

Display Comparison

Display wise, both smartphones are featuring all-screen front so you can avail maximum advantage from its display area.

The Vivo Nex S screen is 6.59’’ with an FHD AMOLED screen panel, along with a pixel density of 388ppi. Vivo brings one of the best screen-to-body ratios of 91.24%, while removing the bezels entirely around 3 sides of the screen, with only a thin strip remaining under the phone.

On the other side, The Find X has a slightly smaller 6.42’’ large FHD OLED display, along with a slightly sharper pixel density of 401ppi. But most importantly, Oppo Find X featuring 93.8% incredible screen-to-body ratio, minimising the size of the remaining bezel under the display even more.

Camera Comparison

Let’s talk about the camera department.  The Vivo Nex S phone includes a dual camera system is not hidden away in the body. Lenses are situated in a vertical manner, with a 12MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 5MP secondary sensor with f/2.4 aperture and OIS support. There is an 8MP (f/2.0) front-facing shooter will amazingly rise from the top of the device.

On the Find X device, none of its shooters are visible before you open the camera app. Once you open it, an entire section of the phone rises out of the top, and it moves up rapidly as compared to Vivo's front-facing camera.

There are a 16MP primary sensor and 20MP secondary sensor with f/2.0 large aperture and OIS support. In addition, there is a way better 25MP (f/2.0) highest quality selfie camera on the other side of the device.

Performance Comparison

Surprisingly, both Find X by Oppo and Vivo Nex S come with the most advanced and efficient Snapdragon 845 processor chip, 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.

On the software side, it runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with the Oppo’s own Color OS 5.1 UI. You will enjoy Google's full suite of apps, and it also supports the Android P Beta program, and hence you will experience the next version of the OS before its official release.

On the other hand, Nex S runs on Android 8.1, but with the manufacturer’s own FunTouch 3.1 interface over the top of it that doesn't have the Google apps suite.

Battery Comparison

The Vivo Nex S includes a hefty 4000mAh capacity battery which is one of the biggest in any of the leading flagship of the recent times. While the Find X battery is slightly smaller at 3730mAh capacity, but you do get Oppo's VOOC flash charging features to recharge the device in a flash. But the bad thing is that none of them support wireless charging feature.

Biometrics Comparison

The fingerprint scanner is not included in any mobile phone. There actually is a fingerprint reader in the Vivo Nex S device, but it is hidden within the display. It is comparatively slower than the traditional fingerprint scanners, but it still works quite well. You will not avail a face unlock option, however, as the selfie shooter is folded in the phone’s assembly.

There is no fingerprint sensor on the Oppo Find X though. Instead, you will experience the Oppo’s own O-Face technology.

O-Face uses the Selfie camera and an infrared sensor to 3D map your face, and for unlocking the phone you have to press the power/lock key to start the device, the camera pops up rapidly to look at you and consequently unlocks it.

Price Comparison

Vivo Nex S will cost you 4998 Yuan (or around $770) for the 256GB version, while the 128GB version will cost 4498 Yuan (around $700). The device is available on sale in China only. Vivo Nex S price in Australia will be approx. AU$1000 for 256GB, and AU$940 for the 128GB version.

On the other side, Oppo Find X is slightly higher in price at $1100, making it one of the most expensive flagship phones on the market. Oppo Find X price in Australia will be around AU$1500.
