Every Moment, Perfectly Captured

When I opened up the OPPO Find N3 Flip, I was buzzing with excitement. I adore snapping photos, and having a phone that can do that brilliantly? Well, that’s just awesome.

During an evening out on the city streets, the OPPO Find N3 Flip was my companion. With its main 50MP Sony IMX890 camera, I was able to capture stunning photographs that impressed everyone around me. Even in moments where the street’s hustle and bustle caused my hands to move a bit, the shots were clear. That’s all thanks to something called Optical Image Stabilization. It’s like having a built-in helper to make sure your photos don’t come out blurry.

Walking around, I also tried the 48MP Sony IMX581 ultra-wide camera. This lens is super cool because it lets you capture a lot more in one photo. It has a 114° field of view, which means it can see a big area, kind of like having wide eyes. It let me take a big picture that fit in lots of things, from tall buildings to large crowds. I also took a close-up photo of some pretty flowers, and the details were amazing. The Sony IMX581 sensor helps in making sure the photos are bright and clear.

At a local café, I took a few photos of my friends and our delicious food. Using the 32MP Sony IMX709 telephoto portrait camera, the pictures were perfect! Everyone was clear and in focus, while the café’s background got this soft, blurry look. It felt as if I had used one of those expensive cameras.

When it comes to capturing those candid moments or perfecting our video call looks, the selfie camera plays a crucial role. And, speaking from my experience, the Find N3 Flip truly understands this selfie culture. This phone comes with a 32MP Sony IMX709 camera in the inner screen, specially designed for those personal moments. Whether I was snapping a quick selfie or engaging in a group video call, it made sure I was presented in the best light. If you’re someone who’s into taking self-portraits, this camera won’t disappoint!

And then there’s the Multi-Angle FlexForm camera. This feature became my go-to for all those creative shots. Imagine being at a park, and you want a photo with the beautiful fountain behind. You don’t need anyone to help. Just set the phone down, show it your hand, and it clicks your picture! Plus, there’s an Ultra-Wide Selfie mode. This lets me get a photo with not just my face, but also all the cool stuff around me. Multi-person photography? A breeze with the ultra-wide angle and high resolution.

The camera’s software magic, like the Vitality Imaging Engine, refined every shot, making colours pop and details shine. And the Hasselblad features? They added a touch of class. Whether it was the HNCS, XPAN classic retro style mode, or the Master Style, every shot felt like it had been touched by a master’s hand.

And there’s more! The phone has some smart features to make photos look even better. OPPO Computational Photography ensures that the light in the photos is just right, so they look natural. And when you view the photos on this phone, they look so vibrant and lifelike. That’s because of the ProXDR feature. It’s like having a mini TV screen on your phone, making everything look super bright and colourful.

Design Experience

When I first set my eyes on the Find N3 Flip, it also gave off that classic charm with its vertical cover screen, reminding me of the beautiful design of the Find N2 Flip. But the standout for me was the new three-camera setup, promising top-notch photo skills.

Made for the Palm

Holding the Find N3 Flip is like holding a piece of crafted art. It’s wrapped in shiny glass and strong metal, but it’s the curve of the phone that’s a show-stealer. It fits snugly in my hand, thanks to the specially designed Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. I found out it’s the curviest flip phone out there, and the smoothness is all because of some super-cool way OPPO shapes the glass.

A Camera that Speaks

The Find N3 Flip isn’t just a flip phone; it’s the first flip phone with a flagship triple camera. And that camera setup though! The Cosmos Ring with the Starlight Track around it is not just good-looking but feels like it’s borrowed from those high-end cameras. I remember being fascinated by the Find X6 Pro’s design, and seeing a similar touch on the Find N3 Flip made me believe this phone is no less than a superstar.

Easy Peasy Sounds

The new Alert Slider on the side of the Find N3 Flip is pure genius. Just a quick slide, and I can tell if my phone is silent, vibrating, or ringing. Each mode has its own little buzz, so I don’t even need to look at the phone. Talk about convenience!

Colours that Speak ‘Me’

The colour choices are just the cherry on top. The Cream Gold is creamy, soft, and glows differently with changing lights. On the other hand, the Sleek Black has this glossy finish that shouts luxury. Both colours make the phone a fashion statement!

Built to Last…and Last

My occasional mishaps don’t concern me much anymore, especially knowing that the Find N3 Flip has the TÜV Rheinland Certification. This isn’t just any certification; it assures that this phone can withstand a staggering 6,00,000 folds! The hinge, fitted with dual plates, operates with an unmatched smoothness, making each fold feel as seamless as the first. The zero-gap design, a homage to the Find N2 Flip, blends flawlessness with functionality. An unexpected downpour or an accidental liquid spill isn’t a cause for worry, thanks to its IPX4 rating that ensures splash resistance. Moreover, its backbone, made from aircraft-grade materials, promises a 25 percent boost in load-bearing strength, building my trust in its durability. By my calculations, even if I were to show off the flip action 100 times daily, this marvel would remain by my side for over 16 years. Now that’s unparalleled value and endurance!

Effortless Excellence

With the OPPO Find N3 Flip in your hands, your experience will include unparalleled efficiency and power. This device isn’t just about getting through the day; it’s about making every moment count with seamless responses, uninterrupted gameplays, and endless entertainment.

Performance Powerhouse

The secret? Well, it’s powered by the MediaTek 4nm Dimensity 9200 chipset, which is a big deal in the tech world. I could easily switch between apps, play those graphic-intensive games, and even try my hand at editing some 4K videos, all without a hiccup. Also, while being in those hardcore gaming sessions with my friends, I no longer had to pause my game to optimize performance. All thanks to the Gaming Tools that helped the avid gamer in me to be always ready. Just a swipe from the screen’s edge, and I was all set.

OPPO Find N3 Flip comes with 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. This combination of RAM and storage can handle seamless multitasking, take any heavy game and store lots of photos, videos, apps, and more.

Endurance Enthusiast

With life’s pace, who has time for frequent charging stops? The Find N3 Flip understands. It packs a 4300mAh battery, which, to put it in simple terms, meant I didn’t have to run for the charger by midday. It is the largest battery that you will find on any flip phone.  And speaking of charging, this phone is lightning-fast. The 44W SUPERVOOCTM is magic. I tested it out: in just about 10 minutes, it got a 21 percent charge, and in 30 minutes, it was already at 58 percent. Full charge? Just in 56 mins.

The Charm of the Cover Screen

Small but Mighty:

OPPO Find N3 Flip with its 3.26-inch AMOLED vertical cover screen really left me amazed. It gave enough space to hold three large sensors in the camera setup and above all this vertical cover screen design even helped the brand to fit the largest battery capacity in any flip phone till date. The quick toggles displayed everything I needed, and I could glance at up to six notifications without squinting. But what really made me smile? Taking selfies. The cover screen’s preview was great, with almost no cropping, and the details popped with its 17:9 aspect ratio. And the bezel? So thin at just 0.3mm, it was barely there!

Reimagining the Camera:

With the Find N3 Flip, bigger isn’t always better. It’s the smart design choices that make a difference. Instead of crowding its beautiful display with cameras or pushing them to a corner, the phone’s design houses three flagship cameras. And it didn’t stop there – it’s the only flip phone I’ve seen that boasts a telephoto camera.

Stay Updated Without the Flip:

The all-new cover screen experience was a game-changer. All the mini apps I loved from the Find N2 Flip made a return, but now, there was room for more than 40 third-party apps. From Gmail and Google Maps to favourites like Reddit and WhatsApp, I could stay connected without flipping open the phone.

A Delightful Pet Parade:

This feature added a fun twist! Eight animated pets live right on the cover screen. And now, they’re in 3D! A simple tap, and they’d play around, each animation bringing a smile to my face. From a playful cat to a cuddly koala, choosing a pet became my new pastime.

Access Made Easy:

Navigating the cover screen felt intuitive. I could quickly swipe and fire up my favourite apps or widgets. And the cherry on top? A real-time animated weather wallpaper that shifted with the day. I even pinned my top three widgets for lightning-fast access.

Experience the Expanse:

Opening the Find N3 Flip was like stepping into a cinema. The 6.8-inch 120Hz AMOLED screen was nothing short of a spectacle. Every detail was sharp, every colour vibrant, and the added benefits, like reduced power consumption and minimal reflections, enhanced the experience. That 1440Hz PWM dimming? A subtle touch that ensured comfort during my binge-watching sessions.

Beauty Without the Crease:

One thing I’ve noticed with flip phones is the crease. But the Find N3 Flip came close to perfection. From many angles, the crease seemed almost invisible. The touch was smooth, and thanks to the innovative Flexion Hinge, the screen folded seamlessly and looked like a perfect water-drop shape. It felt like a unified, single screen rather than a foldable one.
