We would like to commend the speed of the included Oppo Find X3 Pro biometry system. The fingerprint scanners used may still be from the optical family but are extremely fast. As fast as the S21 Ultra which uses an ultrasonic scanner. The device can be locked without a finger being pressed hard on the scanner sensor. For those who use face scan (why use it in this masked world) it is faster than the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Just pick up the device and the screen stays locked. The only drawback is if the face unlock is done in the dark because the X3 Pro does not have the iPhone and Huawei Mate infrared transmitter.
After a week with the X3 Pro what we can say is that not only is Oppo’s design capabilities now mature but more importantly on the software side they are also able to provide an experience that is as good as other top android manufacturers. So it’s no surprise why Oppo dominated the Southeast Asian market and overtook Huawei as the number one device maker for the Chinese market in the first quarter of 2021.
What we’re hoping for is support for older Android updates from Oppo. Currently it is only given two years after the device was launched. They are behind Google, Samsung, Nokia and OnePlus in providing Android version update support for up to three years. Since Oppo and OnePlus are the other siblings of Pete Lau’s mother, it is hoped that this 3 -year support will also be given by Oppo in the near future.
