Phone Comparisons: Google Pixel 8 Pro vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra

Google Pixel 8 Pro vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra comparison

OPPO announced its new flagship this month, and our review went out quite recently. Having said that, in this article, we’ll compare it to one of the best flagships around. We’ll compare the Google Pixel 8 Pro vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra. These two smartphones are both quite powerful, but they’re also quite different at the same time. They not only look different, but have different sets of specs, and approaches to photography too.

We’ll kick things off by comparing their specifications, and will then move to a number of other areas. You’ll see a comparison between their designs, displays, performance, battery life, cameras, and audio output. Before we start, do note that the OPPO Find X7 Ultra is not available globally at the time of writing this comparison. The chances of that changing are very slim. It does work fine when you install the Google Play Store, though, so… importing is always an option. Having said that, let’s get started.

Google Pixel 8 Pro vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Design

The moment you lay eyes on these two phones you’ll notice how different they are. The Google Pixel 8 Pro is made out of metal and glass. It has a flat display on the front and a centered display camera hole. The bezels around its display are immensely thin. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra is made out of metal, glass, and vegan leather, as vegan leather covers two-thirds of its backside. It has a curved display, a centered display camera hole, and very thin bezels around its panel.

Now, on the back of the Pixel 8 Pro, you’ll find glass and a camera visor. That camera visor is horizontally aligned, and it stretches from the right side of the frame to the left. It does protrude noticeably. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra has glass and vegan leather on the back and a huge camera oreo. That camera oreo also protrudes quite a bit. Both camera bumps are a good anchor for your finger when you hold these devices. Due to its vegan leather on the back, we found that the OPPO Find X7 Ultra is less slippery. Neither phone is particularly grippy, though.

The OPPO Find X7 Ultra also has an alert slider on the back, unlike the Pixel 8 Pro. That’s a three-step alert slider. Physical buttons sit on the right-hand side of both phones, but they have different alignments. All physical buttons are quite clicky, though. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra does have a slightly larger display, and it’s slightly taller, slightly narrower, and slightly thicker than the Google Pixel 8 Pro. It’s also slightly heavier, by 8 grams. It’s worth noting that both smartphones are IP68 certified for water and dust resistance and that both feel like premium devices.

Google Pixel 8 Pro vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Display

The Pixel 8 Pro includes a 6.7-inch 2992 x 1344 LTPO OLED display on the back. That panel is flat, and it offers an adaptive refresh rate, it can go from 1 to 120Hz. This panel supports HDR10+ content, and its max theoretical brightness is 2,400 nits. The display aspect ratio is 20:9, and the display is protected by the Gorilla Glass Victus 2. The bezels around this display are very thin.

The OPPO Find X7 Ultra, on the other hand, includes a 6.82-inch QHD+ (3168 x 1440) LTPO AMOLED display. This display is curved, and it can project up to 1 billion colors. It has an adaptive refresh rate (1-120Hz), and supports Dolby Vision too. HDR10+ content is supported, and the maximum theoretical brightness is at 4,500 nits. The Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protects this display. The bezels around the panel are very thin.

There’s really not much to complain about here, regarding either display. Both are outstanding, actually. Not only do they offer great viewing angles, and very vivid colors, but they’re also quite color accurate. On top of that, they’re very sharp and have good touch response as well. Both panels also get more than bright enough in all situations, even when you’re outside in direct sunlight. You’ll be happy with either of these panels.

Google Pixel 8 Pro vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Performance

The Google Pixel 8 Pro is fueled by the Google Tensor G3 processor. Google also included 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM inside of the device, along with UFS 3.1 flash storage. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra, on the other hand, comes with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. OPPO also placed up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM inside of the phone, along with UFS 4.0 flash storage. OPPO’s handset does have a theoretically more powerful processor and faster storage. The Tensor G3 is made for the Pixel, though, and it does bring plenty of AI features to the table.

Both of these smartphones do offer great performance, to say the least. For the vast majority of tasks, both smartphones are truly fluid. They can multitask like nobody’s business while consuming multimedia, browsing, emailing, and other everyday tasks are not a problem at all. Even image and video editing, and some more advanced tasks are running smoothly, at least they did for us.

When it comes to gaming, the OPPO Find X7 Ultra does have the advantage. It not only has faster storage but also a more powerful processor. We did notice that extremely demanding games are running better on OPPO’s handset, at the highest settings. Still, the Pixel 8 Pro can play those games too, they’re definitely not out of the question. Neither phone got too hot while running those games either. There’s also no outstanding lag to talk about either.

Google Pixel 8 Pro vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Battery

You will find a 5,050mAh battery inside Google’s flagship, while the OPPO Find X7 Ultra carries a 5,000mAh unit. The battery life is very good on both smartphones, though we’ve experienced better results on the OPPO Find X7 Ultra. The Pixel 8 Pro managed to get around 7+ hours of screen-on-time for us, most of the time. We managed to get over the 8-hour mark a couple of times.

The OPPO Find X7 Ultra was able to cross that 8-hour mark consistently, and even go beyond it at times when needed. Having that in mind, both smartphones do offer very good battery life, and chances are both will be able to get you to the end of the day. Your mileage may vary, though, of course, so keep that in mind. Also, if you’re playing games on your phones, or run very demanding apps, the results will be different, of course.

In terms of charging, the OPPO Find X7 Ultra blows the Pixel 8 Pro out of the water. The Pixel 8 Pro supports 30W wired, 23W wireless, and 5W reverse wireless charging. It does not come with a charger in the box. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra supports 100W wired, 50W wireless, and 5W reverse wireless charging. A 100W charger is included in the box as well, so keep that in mind.

Google Pixel 8 Pro vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Cameras

The camera setups and general approaches to photography are completely different between these two phones. The Pixel 8 Pro has a 50-megapixel main camera, a 48-megapixel ultrawide unit (126-degree FoV), and a 48-megapixel telephoto camera (5x optical zoom). The OPPO Find X7 Ultra includes four 50-megapixel units. A 50-megapixel main camera (1-inch sensor) is backed by a 50-megapixel ultrawide camera (123-degree FoV), a 50-megapixel periscope telephoto unit (3x optical zoom), and a second 50-megapixel periscope telephoto camera (6x optical zoom).

AH OPPO Find X7 Ultra image 82

OPPO not only includes a 1-inch main camera sensor, but rather large sensors overall. Even its ultrawide and periscope telephoto sensors are larger than the ones on the Pixel 8 Pro. On top of that, Hasselblad is a part of the picture here as well. Google is, however, using very compelling sensors too, and it’s well known for producing outstanding camera smartphones. How do they compare?

Well, both smartphones do provide outstanding results, which are different. The Pixel 8 Pro loves to use plenty of processing for images. It will provide you with great results in both day and night. Daytime images do look processed but in a good way. The HDR shots in particular end up looking great, while in low light the phone does like to brighten up the scene quite a bit. The ultrawide camera does keep up with the main unit in terms of colors, while 5x shots look great.

The OPPO Find X7 Ultra likes to keep things a bit closer to real life, but still make the photos pop. The images during the day are great, the HDR performance is outstanding, and the phone has an outstanding white balance. OPPO’s new flagship shines when it comes to images with demanding light sources. In low light, it tends to keep things a bit darker, and closer to real life, while obtaining plenty of detail. Even its secondary sensors do great in low light, including periscope telephoto cameras. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra also covers more focal lengths.


There is a set of stereo speakers on both of these smartphones. Those speakers are quite loud and well-balanced. There are some differences between them, but they’re minimal. You’ll be more than happy with both pairs.

What you will not find is an audio jack. You will need to use their Type-C ports in order to hook up your wired headphones, which will require a dongle. For wireless connections, however, Bluetooth is supported. The Pixel 8 Pro supports Bluetooth 5.3, while the OPPO Find X7 Ultra includes Bluetooth 5.4.
