Oppo Find N2 Flip review: a real alternative to the Galaxy Z Flip 4
The Find N2 Flip is not as fully equipped as a Find X5 Pro, for example. It ignores the telephoto lens, like most folding smartphones. It thus offers a photo unit comprising a main sensor (IMX890) of 50 megapixels signed Sony (wide-angle optics f / 1.8) and a second of 8 Mpx, with an ultra wide-angle (f / 2.2).
Main module: 50 megapixels, f/1.8, 23 mm eq.
The main module of the Find N2 Flip uses the pixel binding allowing to obtain final shots of 12.5 megapixels, lighter. They are of very decent quality, and even slightly higher than those of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 (12 Mpx). There is a better sharpness, the textures being better rendered, the small elements more readable, and the colorimetry being a little more vivid. The processing operated by Oppo is less soft and plays more with micro-contrasts, but this serves the readability of the image.
The smartphone has more difficulties at night. The Find N2 Flip then struggles to deliver an image with natural colors, and smoothing appears. The accentuation of the contrasts partly compensates for the desaturation of the colors, but the result is less pleasing to the eye.
50 megapixel mode
Rather relevant during the day, since it allows you to comfortably crop images while maintaining good final quality, the 50 megapixel mode lacks interest in low light. Remember that this mode is available in the “formats” tab of the photo application.
Ultra-wide-angle module: 8 megapixel f/2.2
The Find N2 Flip struggles to compare with the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in the ultra wide-angle field. In addition to a slightly light definition at this price level, the module is associated with aggressive software processing marked by a clear accentuation of the contours. The whole lacks both detail and naturalness.
In low light, a smoothing that erases the details of the scene makes its appearance and the whole is difficult to use.
Front and video module
If the smartphone makes it very easy to capture selfies using its back modules, it has a 32-megapixel front sensor located in a punch. A high definition which nevertheless should not make us forget a rather aggressive treatment, and whose results lack naturalness. On the video side, the Find N2 Flip allows you to film up to 4K at 30 fps, with stabilization. The front module does not allow filming in definition higher than Full HD at 30 fps, we will favor back sensors as much as possible.
