1. Introduction and pictures
Nowadays, the performance of mobile phones is no longer single, and memory, flash memory, and heat dissipation must keep up. These configurations determine the upper limit of performance, but the basis is still given by the processor.
I recently got the Dimensity version of the OPPO Find X5 Pro. As the name suggests, it is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity processor. Other configurations have not changed much from the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 version, so this time the focus is on the Dimensity 9000. Before the phone, let’s talk about MediaTek first. .
Eleven years ago, MediaTek released the Android smartphone platform MT6573 and officially entered the smartphone market. The subsequent release of MT6575, MT6577 and many other processors lowered the high price of smartphones at that time.
It is not difficult to see that Fage started as a mid-to-low-end business. The advantage is that it is cheap and easy to distribute in a large area. At that time, many well-known manufacturers adopted it, but it also has disadvantages.
In 2014, MediaTek wanted to hit the high-end and brought the world’s first A17 core 8-core MT6595, but unfortunately it encountered the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, which was in the limelight.
In 2015, MT6753, which is still used by many devices, was released, but the low price did not bring better effect to MediaTek, and even because it was cheap, it was carried by a large number of cottage phones, which became a stalk. If you are an old smartphone user , then you must have seen or used a device equipped with the MT6753 processor.
In the same year, the release of the high-end 10nm process Helio X30 is indeed expected to compete with Qualcomm. After all, the performance of the Snapdragon 820 was not very good at that time, but its design was a bit advanced, and it was hot, and was finally terminated by the generation of God U Snapdragon 835.
In 2019, MediaTek experienced the era of 3G and 4G, and came to the 5G network, and released the world’s first 5G dual-carrier aggregation, 5G dual-card dual standby Dimensity 1000, which was not optimistic at first, because of the inherent impression of MediaTek. , but in the end it was really fragrant.
Since then, MediaTek has become the world’s largest chip supplier by virtue of the Dimensity series, Dimensity 1000+, Dimensity 1200, Dimensity 1100, Dimensity 900, Dimensity 800… Complete the mid-to-high-end coverage, and become the world’s largest chip supplier in one fell swoop, changing Qualcomm for many years It is the only one that dominates and released the first 5G high-end flagship Dimensity 9000.
According to the above, MediaTek has hit the high-end many times. Can it be done this time? You must know that the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition is the first flagship mobile phone in the true sense of the MediaTek platform. How about the performance, heat generation, and power consumption?
To tell the truth, OPPO really needs to cooperate with MediaTek now. After the green factory resumed the Find series, it has been making steady progress. Now the Find 5 series is equipped with the Dimensity 9000 for the first time, which can gain more attention. The two goals are the same – to high-end.
The Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition is available in ceramic material, with two colors of white porcelain and black glaze. This one in my hand is white porcelain.
The phone packaging is printed with the words Dimensity Edition

The two versions of Find X5 Pro have the same screens. The front is a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 3216*1440 (2K), a maximum touch sampling rate of 240Hz, a pixel density of 525PPI, and a 100% P3 color gamut. The hole-digging design is a common design of the current flagship machine. The rare is the 2K high resolution, and the Find series has three consecutive generations of high-scoring screens, which are worthy of praise.

The new phone supports LTPO2.0, supports 1-120Hz dynamic refresh rate, and displays with different refresh rates in different scenarios, achieving the effect of power saving and smoothness. The lower fingerprint also returns to the normal screen position.

The back cover is made of an integrated nano-microcrystalline ceramic material, which is warm to the touch and is not easy to be contaminated with fingerprints. OPPO itself is very delicate in terms of workmanship. After using ceramics, the sense of delicacy is improved again, and it is more comfortable, especially in the hand. It is very delicate.

The rear camera part continues the “crater” design of the previous generation, but the details have been fine-tuned compared to the previous generation. The mobile phone case is definitely not universal. I won’t say whether it looks good or not. I still can’t appreciate it. In addition, the body supports IP68 dustproof and waterproof. .
The difference between the Dimensity version and the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 version lies in the back cover. The former does not have the MariSilicon and Hasselblad logos, so it is easy to distinguish the difference between the two.
2. Performance and Gaming
In terms of performance, let’s talk about why the Chat Ji 9000 has attracted much attention? Because we want a better energy efficiency ratio, that is, the ratio of energy conversion efficiency, which can allow heat generation, but cannot be hot after running for a while. This is a common problem in the Android camp in the past two years. Taking Qualcomm as an example, the performance is obvious to all. Who is not sure, but users want to have a competitor.
MediaTek treats Dimensity 9000 very cautiously. The CPU part is designed with Cortex-X2 super core + Cortex-A710 large core + Cortex-A510 small core. It is the latest ARM architecture solution, so it is also a public version, why do you have Dimensity 9000 will be stronger and more power efficient? MediaTek has obviously made great efforts in this regard, increasing cache and memory bandwidth to improve multimedia efficiency. This has been proven by predecessors. Therefore, Dimensity 9000 supports LPDDR5X-7500 memory, which is currently the largest Android flagship SoC. The cache design improves performance and power consumption.
Of course, the above all belong to hardware, and software adjustment and optimization are the key points. The Dimensity 9000 brings global energy efficiency optimization technology, covering different IP modules, and designing the specific specifications of each component, which can divide the mobile phone load into light weight according to the usage scenario. Load, medium load and heavy load, use corresponding energy efficiency optimization strategies in different scenarios, and ultimately reduce the power consumption of mobile phones.
In terms of GPU, Dimensity 9000 integrates Mali-G710 MC10. In addition to being the latest ARM GPU architecture, it also has a unique design that greatly reduces the load when CPU participates in collaborative computing, which should be similar to CPU+GPU collaborative computing. To add to the wickedness, there will no longer be a scene where one core is difficult and nine cores are watching.
Then there is the APU590, which is an independent AI processor that is responsible for the scheduling of the GPU and the game engine, balancing game image quality and power consumption.
In addition, many people are concerned about the ISP computing power of the Dimensity 9000. This aspect is left in the camera and image, and let’s take a look at the running score of the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition.
After the actual test, the AnTuTu running score of OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition is 1000848, breaking through one million. Among them, the CPU score has a very good performance. It is found that it has a high frequency that has been maintained for a long time, and it is rare that the fuselage Fever is not obvious.
As mentioned earlier, the Dimensity 9000 has a larger cache and LPDDR5X-7500 memory. According to the data previously released by Micron, based on the Dimensity 9000 platform, the latency of LPDDR5X is reduced by 20% compared to LPDDR5, so the CPU waits faster for memory read and write time. , the computation can be done earlier, so it can be concluded that the heap cache is indeed useful.
Through the 30-minute stress test comparison, it can be seen from the curve that the CPU of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 maintained a continuous high frequency in the early stage, but the frequency lock appeared later, which is expected to be related to the heat of the fuselage. It maintains a continuous high frequency, but does not reach above 3.GHz. It is for reference only. Each manufacturer treats the processor scheduling differently, but it can be seen that the CPU capability of the Dimensity 9000 is better.
Another obvious example is the comparison with the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 version, as follows.
The GPU is at a normal level, which is somewhat different from the new generation Adreno of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1. It is understandable that Qualcomm has been working on the GPU for many years and has deep attainments, while the Dimensity 9000 integrates the Mali-G710 MC10. The GPU scale is not large, it is estimated to be Fage’s helpless move for power consumption, and because ColorOS scheduling is different, the software solution is not so radical.
The test data of Mali-G710 MC10 shows that high-load operation can run all mainstream games smoothly, and MediaTek has made some special optimizations, that is, the aforementioned collaborative computing. In some game scenarios, the CPU, GPU, APU of Dimensity 9000 Be able to work at the same time, reduce the individual burden, choose the appropriate or more efficient core to complete, and see the actual game performance.
– “Glory of the King”
“Honor of Kings” opens the 120-frame mode, which can maintain full-frame operation. For this MOBA mobile game, Dimensity 9000 does not even need to be fully loaded. The frame drop during the period belongs to the end-of-game switching interface. In terms of temperature, the maximum temperature is 41.6. The average temperature is 38.3, and the temperature of the whole machine is only a little high in the chip area.
– “Original God”
Then there is “Genshin Impact”, which can be stabilized to 60fps in the early stage, and then the frame starts to drop by 40fps when the body heats up. Relatively speaking, OPPO Find X5 Pro can maintain 60fps for a long time. In fact, most flagship mobile phones can sacrifice power consumption in exchange for 60fps for a long time, but it causes the body to heat up and consume a lot of power, so it is not worth it. In fact, I personally think that the optimization of “Yuan Shen” is part of the reason for the current mobile phone heat. In terms of temperature, the highest temperature is 43, and the average temperature is 39.7.
On the whole, the Dimensity 9000 is indeed lower in power consumption than the Snapdragon 8 Gen1, especially for long-term running games. Personally, I think it is not as strong as the online saying. After all, it is the first installed machine, and there is still room for polishing. Existing, not too hot, it is an acceptable level. In terms of performance, it can compete with the Snapdragon 8 Gen1, but the latter has a greater advantage with the almost invincible GPU of the Android camp, although MediaTek still has a way to go in the flagship field. , but as the first true flagship for so many years, the Dimensity 9000’s performance is surprising enough.
three, Cameras and Imaging
In terms of imaging, the lenses of the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity version and the Snapdragon version are basically the same. The latter’s main camera has suspension image stabilization and a 13-channel multi-spectral sensor. The former has optical image stabilization, and the lens is still the 50-megapixel main camera. (IMX766 OIS) + 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle (IMX766 free-form lens) + 13-megapixel 2x telephoto lens, but there is no Mariana X self-developed chip, I consulted OPPO, and the main reason for the response is that there is no manpower And time, Mariana’s initial project was nearly 3 years ago, but now it is communicating with MediaTek about debugging MediaTek and Mariana chips.
Then there is the 18-bit HDR-ISP image signal processor Imagiq 790 on the Dimensity 9000. The improvement is very obvious this time. The pixel throughput capacity of theoretical data reaches 9 billion pixels/second. The biggest upgrade according to the official description is the night scene, which calls the APU. , combined with AI algorithm noise reduction processing, not ISP multi-frame synthesis, to see how the effect is.

Let’s talk about macro first. At present, there are many solutions for macro macros on mobile phones. One is to take the main camera directly at the violent point, but the details are not sufficiently restored and cannot be too close. The other is to shoot with a separate macro lens, such as 200 10,000 pixels or 5 million pixels, the disadvantage is that the pixels are too low to be very clear. Another is that the ultra-wide-angle lens is commonly used in flagship phones to be responsible for macro scenes. This is the case with the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition. Due to the ultra-wide-angle distortion algorithm, The edges are a little blurry, but the details of the subject are clearly discernible thanks to the ultra-wide-angle advantage.
All images in the main camera have good details. In some scenes, it can be seen that the algorithm makes the picture better. However, there is a small problem of color inconsistency between the ultra-wide-angle and the main camera, which may be due to the engineering machine. Autofocus is fast and smooth, thanks to the computing power of the Dimensity 9000.
It needs to be explained that the local weather was suddenly foggy, and the long-range shots could not be taken, so I had to take some close-up shots and make up later.

The night scene has a wide dynamic range, good color reproduction, and rich details, especially texture and noise. , but the actual performance also depends on the lens. Speaking of people, what will happen if I change the CMOS algorithm of a thousand yuan machine? To be followed-up performance, in fact, in this regard, I personally prefer Qualcomm’s plan.
Fourth, charging and battery life
In terms of battery, the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity version is equipped with a 5000mAh battery, and many people want to see whether the Dimensity 9000 saves power compared with the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 model. Let’s see how its battery life is. It is customary to use the AnTuTu stress test function to perform super power consumption tests.
Stress test is a built-in function of AnTuTu Review. It tests the stability of device performance by performing high-load operations. It requires a lot of calculations by the CPU, so the power consumption is larger than that of video and daily use.
Compared with the OnePlus 10 Pro equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen1 (170 minutes), and the 2K+120Hz option is also turned on, the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity version lasted for 210 minutes. Both of them run ColorOS 12 based on Android 12. The system scheduling Not to mention exactly the same, it is always similar, so it can be concluded that the power consumption of the Dimensity 9000 is indeed better.
(Click the picture to enlarge it)
Another impressive point is that the stress test will stop when the maximum temperature is set to 50. Before testing some Snapdragon 888 or Snapdragon 8 Gen1 models, it would be embarrassing to forcibly stop at 50 degrees, but OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity This is not the case with the version, and even 45 degrees is rare.
In terms of charging, the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition supports 80W wired fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging, and has a built-in 2440mAh dual-cell solution, so the equivalent is 5000mAh.
After the actual test, the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition took 19 minutes to go from 1% to 100%, which is a significant improvement compared to the ancestral 65W. Among them, 21% of the power is charged in 3 minutes, and 58% of the power is charged in 9 minutes. This speed There is absolutely no problem in daily use.
The overall performance of the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition is surprising. The screen and camera are all high-end flagships. Even the Dimensity 9000, which has changed the most, has very stable performance and power consumption, almost reaching a balance, improving the two-year high. The situation that the load is hot, lived up to expectations.
Since the first generation, the Find series has been an “anomaly” of domestic mobile phones. The shape has always been innovative, the update and iteration are very fast, and it has followed the mainstream of mobile phones.
The OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity version can’t pick out obvious shortcomings, but aside from the Dimensity 9000, the whole body does not have much bright spots, and there is no radical point. It has continued OPPO’s many years of stability. The top flagship of the phone, it is better to say that it is a flagship that is well-known.
Then let’s talk about MediaTek. It is a very wise decision to release the flagship processor at this time. In fact, at this point in time, users have more fault tolerance for Fage than Qualcomm. After all, the latter has been dominant for many years and really needs a competitor to compete. With the Dimensity 9000 footprint, who said that MediaTek can’t be the flagship?
To be honest, I talked a lot about MediaTek in the whole review, and I was always worried about going off topic. After thinking about it carefully, I personally think that MediaTek and OPPO are very similar in some places. I haven’t given up for so many years. Under such a premise, it doesn’t matter whether Fage’s high-end road is successful or not.
Baojianfeng comes from the sharpening, and the fragrance of plum blossoms comes from bitter cold.
