Oppo and Xiaomi are two Chinese manufacturers who have established themselves, each in their way, in the French smartphone market. Do you need more time between these two brands? We help you see more clearly. Present in France since 2018, Oppo has entered through the front door with the launch of a high-end smartphone, the Find X.
A tactic that has paid off since the manufacturer is now one of the main sellers of mobiles in France, behind Samsung, Apple… and Xiaomi. Since 2017, the latter has won the hearts of the French by offering phones with excellent value for money while moving upmarket over the years. As you will have understood, you will be satisfied with your purchase, whether you choose one or the other of its brands. Here’s what you need to know before deciding.
An Exceptional Display
Oppo and Xiaomi offer smartphones with excellent display quality. Their top-of-the-range models also have the best technologies (Amoled, refreshment at 90 or 120 Hz, etc.), which have almost nothing to envy the tenors of the Apple and Samsung market. True to its early commitments, Xiaomi does not hesitate to offer some of these technologies on its smartphones for 200 euros. Great for those on a tight budget.
The screen diagonals offered by Oppo and Xiaomi are among the widest on the market, around 6.7 inches (or 17 cm diagonal). For a compact model, you must turn to the Xiaomi 12(6.28 inches, or 15.9 cm diagonally) or the Oppo Find X5 lite, for example (6.43 inches, or 16.3 cm diagonally ).
Innovators In Photography
The two manufacturers, Oppo and Xiaomi, each claim exceptional photo quality on their mobiles. Their high-end models are equipped with ultra-versatile photo blocks, consisting of a wide-angle, an ultra-wide-angle, and even a telephoto lens, capable of covering all types of scenes. Xiaomi favors megapixel-rich sensors – like on its 12 T Pro, and its 200-megapixel wide-angle guarantees high-definition shots convenient to crop. Oppo is betting on its in-house image processing chip like theFind X5 pro. For shots powered by artificial intelligence, impressive in low light.
The Kings Of Fast Charging
To provide their smartphones with solid endurance, Oppo and Xiaomi equip them with high-capacity batteries, usually at least 4,500 mAh or even 5,000 mAh. The more powerful the smartphone, the more its endurance is undermined. The two manufacturers, therefore, offer an ultra-fast charging function, among the highest on the market, on their high-end references. With an 80W charge at Oppo and even 120W at Xiaomi, refueling is a speed record. On its 11 T Pro, Xiaomi had fallen below 20 minutes! And good news, the two brands also offer a fast charging function on their mid-range (65 to 67W) and even entry-level (33W) models.
The Quest For Ultimate Performance
To provide their smartphones with power that meets the expectations of the most demanding consumers, Oppo and Xiaomi call on the best. They select the most efficient processors from the two big names in the field, Qualcomm and MediaTek. These chips are almost all compatible with Bouygues Telecom’s high-speed 5G mobile network (except those intended for entry-level smartphones, around 200 euros). The two brands are sparing with RAM and storage space for their devices. In particular, Oppo does not hesitate to equip its mid-rangeFind X5 Lite with 8 GB of random access memory (RAM) and 256 GB of storage.
