Oppo Find X5 Lite Camera test

This device has been retested in the latest version of our protocol. Overall, sub-scores and attributes are up to date. For detailed information, check the What’s New article
OTHER AVAILABLE TESTS FOR THIS DEVICE

The Oppo Find X5 Lite competes in the High-End segment against competition like the  Samsung A72, Xiaomi 11T or Redmi K40 Pro+ and offers a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with Full-HD resolution, 8GB of RAM and a MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset.

The rear camera combines a 64MP primary shooter with an 8MP ultra-wide and a dedicated 8MP macro camera for close-ups. In video mode the camera is capable of recording 4K footage at 30 frames per second.

Let’s see how the Oppo Find X5 Lite did in our DXOMARK Camera test.

Key camera specifications:

  • Primary: 64MP sensor, 24mm equivalent focal length, f/1.7-aperture lens, AF
  • Ultra-wide: 8MP sensor, 15mm equivalent focal length, f/2.25-aperture lens
  • Macro: 8MP sensor, f/2.4-aperture lens
  • 4K at 30fps, 1080P at 60fps/30fps (1080p/30fps tested)

About DXOMARK Camera tests: For scoring and analysis in our smartphone camera reviews, DXOMARK engineers capture and evaluate over 3000 test images and more than 2.5 hours of video both in controlled lab environments and in natural indoor and outdoor scenes, using the camera’s default settings. This article is designed to highlight the most important results of our testing.

Use cases

Use case scores indicate the product performance in specific situations. They are not included in the overall score calculations.

Outdoor

Photos & videos shot in bright light conditions (≥1000 lux)

Indoor

Photos & videos shot in good lighting conditions (≥100lux)

Lowlight

Photos & videos shot in low lighting conditions (<100 lux)

Please be aware that beyond this point, we have not modified the initial test results. While data and products remain fully comparable, you might encounter mentions and references to the previous scores.

Pros

  • Good exposure in bright light on primary camera
  • Wide dynamic range in bright light and indoors for photo and video
  • Good exposure at all tele ranges
  • Preview image on display close to final capture
  • Fairly neutral white balance in video

Cons

  • Lack of saturation results in unnatural skin tones
  • Exposure instabilities in bright light and indoors
  • Fusion artifacts and ghosting
  • Lack of detail in photo and video
  • High noise levels in low light video
  • Moving texture artifacts in video
  • Ineffective video stabilization when walking or running

With a DXOMARK Camera score of 106 the Oppo Find X5 Lite delivers an average performance for a device in the High End segment. The camera produces well exposed images when the light conditions are not too challenging. However, photos suffer from a lack of saturation and detail as well as exposure instabilities across consecutive shots and some image artifacts. Overall results are quite similar to previous Oppo phones in this class, for example the Find X3 Lite or Reno 6.

In bright light the Find X5 Lite is capable of capturing images with good exposure and a fairly wide dynamic range.

Still images tend to be well exposed in bright outdoor light and indoors but in low light exposure drops quickly. A fairly wide dynamic range ensures good detail in highlights and shadows but instabilities are visible across consecutive shots. Images also lack saturation which results in unnatural skin tones, and we also observed a lack of detail in most captures. Ghosting and fusion artifacts can be noticeable, too, and in low light using the flash will typically get you better results than flash-off mode.

In this graph you can see that exposure is good in bright light and under indoor conditions but drops off in low light.

This graph shows lightness measured on the portrait crop of the DMC chart against the light level (in lux). The white area represents the region where the lightness is considered correct.

At 16mmThe Oppo’s ultra-wide camera offers a narrower field of view than many competitors. We also found dynamic range to be more limited and texture levels to be lower than on many devices in its class. On the plus side target exposure is generally accurate and image noise is fairly well under control.

When zooming in at close range detail is decent and on a similar level as the competition. However, at medium and long range settings we can see a noticeable loss of detail, especially in low light. The camera does well for tele exposure as long as you don’t shoot in low light but again dynamic range is more limited than on some competitors. Our testers also observed some white balance casts in low light and inaccurate color rendering.

Oppo Find X5 Lite, medium range tele, low light: green color cast and bad color rendering
Oppo Find X5 Lite, crop: strong lack of texture
Oppo Find X5 Pro, medium range tele, low light: good white balance and nice color
Oppo Find X5 Pro, crop: good texture
Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, medium range tele, low light: yellowish white balance, accurate color
Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, crop: good texture

When recording video the resulting footage shows a fairly wide dynamic range under outdoor and indoor condition. Exposure is pretty accurate as well but we did observe some instabilities. Video clips lack fine detail and under indoor lighting noise becomes noticeable, too. Our testers also observed autofocus convergence issues and instabilities in indoor and outdoor conditions. When walking or running while recording video stabilization is not doing a good job and a lot of camera motion is still noticeable.

In low light video performance is very poor and video footage shows a strong lack of detail and noise. The dynamic range is limited, resulting in highlight and shadow clipping, and the autofocus can lock on the wrong target and is generally unstable, especially in high-contrast scenes.

This sample clip shows good exposure and accurate white balance. However, we can also see exposure adaptation and autofocus issues. More fine detail is lost on the subject’s face than on the comparison devices while the level of noise is similar. There are also some moving texture artifacts in the clouds.

Oppo Find X5 Lite, good color but exposure and and autofocus adaptation issues, noise on face

Oppo Find X3 Pro, wise dynamic range and nice color, noise well under control

Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, limited dynamic range, noise on face
