After the delay caused by the Coronavirus outbreak, Oppo launched its new lineup of flagship smartphones, and just like the flagship lineup launched in 2020 by Samsung and Xiaomi, it includes more than a phone. The “affordable” variant is the Oppo Find X2. After comparing the Find X2 Pro with the most advanced flagship launched by Samsung and Xiaomi, in this article, we decided to compare their affordable variants. Here is a specs comparison between Oppo Find X2, Samsung Galaxy S20+ and the vanilla Xiaomi Mi 10.

Independently from the device, you always get a premium design with a glass back and an aluminum frame. Samsung Galaxy S20+ is more interesting in terms of build quality because, besides providing the Gorilla Glass 6 protection front and back, it is also a waterproof phone with the IP68 certification. In my personal opinion, Oppo Find X2 is definitely more attractive with its smaller camera module and its ceramic body (only in the Ceramic Black color variant), but it is just splash resistant. Xiaomi Mi 10 does not provide any certification against dust and water, but it has a very minimalistic and beautiful design.
Due to the presence of a high 120 Hz refresh rate, a high 240 Hz touch sampling rate, an amazing color accuracy, and a very high resolution, our favorite display panel is the one found on the Oppo Find X2. It is likely one of the best panels ever made and on the paper, it looks more convincing than the still amazing display of the Samsung Galaxy S20+. The Galaxy S20+ takes second place, while Xiaomi Mi 10 loses the comparison again due to a lower resolution and a lower refresh rate.
Each of these devices is fueled by the same processor, with the exception of the European version of the Samsung Galaxy S20+ coming with an Exynos 990 chipset. Even the RAM is the same in the top-end configuration, while Samsung Galaxy S20+ doubles the internal storage to 512 GB in its most advanced variant, compared to its rivals. Further, it is the only with expandable internal storage (you can expand the storage through a micro SD slot). In each case, you can find Android 10 out of the box.
At least until we test each of these devices thoroughly, it will be hard to establish which one provides the best photo quality. Despite the presence of a 108 MP main sensor on the Xiaomi Mi 10, Oppo Find X2 and Samsung Galaxy S20+ look more convincing due to better secondary sensors. On the paper, Samsung Galaxy S20+ is more interesting with a quad camera including a 64 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and a 12 MP main sensor with OIS. But you should not underestimate the 48 MP triple camera of the Oppo Find X2.
Xiaomi Mi 10 has a bigger battery and, given that it also comes with a lower display resolution and a lower refresh rate, we believe it will last more on a single charge. Oppo Find X2 features the fastest charging technology, but unlike the Xiaomi Mi 10 and the Samsung Galaxy S20+, it does not support wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
Xiaomi Mi 10 launched in China with a €260/$306 starting price, Samsung Galaxy S20+ costs €399/$399 globally, and Oppo Find X2 will sell for €379 globally as well. It will surely have a higher value for money, but Xiaomi Mi 10 is an inferior device to Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Oppo Find X2. For some kinds of users, on the paper, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ may look more complete than Oppo Find X2 since it has some special features such as IP68 certification and wireless charging which you do not get on the Oppo Find X2. On the other hand, the Find X2 offers faster charging speeds and an awesome display, so we can not say that it is inferior to the Samsung Galaxy S20+. Which one would you pick?
