As one would expect from a flagship, both phones have beautiful designs. Of course, the slope around the camera module and the compactness of the Oppo Find X3 Pro may be more appealing. This phone is also slimmer and lighter.
But when it comes to build quality, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra excels thanks to its front and rear Gorilla Glass protection. Both flagships are IP68 certified and can withstand up to 30 minutes in 1.5 meters of water.
On paper, the screens of two phones have similar features. Of course, no practical tests have been performed on the Oppo Find X3 Pro yet; But the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has been shown to have one of the best mobile displays.
The Oppo also has a lot to say about the ability to display one billion colors thanks to its 10-bit color depth. But what sets Samsung’s flagship apart without a word is the support for the S Pen digital pen.
Another difference is the in-screen fingerprint sensor, which is ultrasonic for Samsung and has a faster function in unlocking the phone.
Hardware and software
Both phones are powered by a Snapdragon 888 chip; However, the European version of the Galaxy S21 Ultra comes with the Exynos 2100 .
The maximum capacity of internal memory and RAM in Oppo Find X3 Pro is 12 + 256 GB. But Samsung’s flagship can have up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.
So it must be said that the Galaxy S21 Ultra has more hardware power. On the other hand, Samsung flagships experience at least four years of security updates and three operating system updates; But Oppo’s track record of updating is not that brilliant.
Again, on paper, the Oppo Find X3 Pro camera set looks more attractive. It has two 50-megapixel cameras with wide and ultra-wide lenses, a macro lens with 60x magnification and a 13-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra has a 108-megapixel main camera, a 10-megapixel periscope camera, a 10-megapixel telephoto camera and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera.
For more accurate judgment, we have to wait for the release of the Find X3 Pro test results; But for now, it can be said that this phone is better at capturing macro images. The Galaxy S21 Ultra, however, has more ability to zoom in on normal images.
Battery capacity and charging speed
The battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is 500 mAh, which can mean longer charging time; At least for power versions of Snapdragon!
On the other hand, the Oppo Find X3 Pro has a 65 watt charging speed thanks to SuperVOOC 2.0 technology. It also supports AirVOOC for 30 watt wireless fast charging.
In global markets, the Oppo Find X3 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra are available for the same price: around € 1,150!
It may be a little early to choose the real winner, and it depends more on the needs of the users. But the highlights of Samsung’s flagship include support for the S Pen, admirable zoom power and a larger battery. The Oppo flagship also comes with a quality display, efficient camera and high-speed charging.
