This time around we’re comparing two ultimate flagship smartphones. This is a comparison between the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra. Both of these phones are extremely powerful, and the best smartphones their respective companies have to offer at the moment. The thing is, the OPPO Find X7 Ultra is only available in its homeland. Well, at least at the time of writing this article. Still, if you do import it, and install the Google Play Store, the phone works great.
Having said that, we’ll first list their specifications, and will then move to compare them across a number of other categories. We’ll compare their designs, displays, performance, battery life, cameras, and audio performance. There is a lot to talk about here, as these two devices are quite different. So, let’s get down to it.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Design
The moment you lay your eyes on these two phones you’ll realize how different they are in terms of the design. The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra has a flat display, slightly rounded sides, and flat top and bottom. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra includes a curved display, curved back (proportionally to the front), and very thin frame on the sides compared to the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Both phones do include a centered display camera hole on the front.
Both devices have extremely thin bezels around their displays. The Galaxy S24 Ultra utilizes titanium and glass, while the OPPO Find X7 Ultra combines aluminum for its frame, and glass and vegan leather on its back. Both smartphones include physical buttons on the right-hand side, while the OPPO Find X7 Ultra also has an alert slider on the left side. The Galaxy S24 Ultra includes an S Pen stylus, which is accessible from the bottom-right side of the phone.
If we flip the two phones over, you’ll see even more differences. The Galaxy S24 Ultra has four cameras each of which protrudes directly from the backplate. There is no dedicated camera island. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra has a dedicated camera island on the back, a circular one. That camera island is quite pronounced, and it includes four cameras as well. We’ve actually realized that it’s a good anchor for your index finger when you hold the phone, so it has a practical use too.
The OPPO Find X7 Ultra is slightly taller and narrower than the Galaxy S24 Ultra, while it’s also a bit thicker. The Galaxy S24 Ultra is heavier, though, over 10 grams heavier. Neither phone is particularly light, though. OPPO’s flagship does offer more grip in comparison, though, mainly thanks to the vegan leather implementation on the back. You will be getting an IP68 certification on both of these smartphones for water and dust resistance. They do feel entirely different in the hand, but offer that premium feel.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Display
The Galaxy S24 Ultra features a 6.8-inch QHD+ (3120 x 1440) Dynamic LTPO AMOLED 2X display. That panel is flat, and it offers a 120Hz refresh rate. Its refresh rate is adaptive by the way, it goes from 1 to 120Hz. HDR10+ content is supported here, while the theoretical max brightness is 2,600 nits. The phone has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, while the panel is protected by the Gorilla Glass Armor.
The OPPO Find X7 Ultra includes a 6.82-inch QHD+ (3168 x 1440) LTPO AMOLED display, which is curved. This panel can project up to 1 billion colors, and it has an adaptive refresh rate (1-120Hz). Dolby Vision is supported on this panel, while the display can theoretically go up to 4,500 nits of brightness at its peak. This display is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection.
Both of these smartphones offer outstanding displays, to say the least. They’re extremely bright, very sharp, and offer vivid colors, and deep blacks. The viewing angles are excellent on both panels, while the touch response is also very good on both. The Gorilla Glass Armor does help with reflections, though, so the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s panel is less reflective. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra display is not too reflective or anything like that, but you do notice the difference when you place them side by side. Corning really did make a difference with the Gorilla Armor protection.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Performance
The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra includes the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy, worldwide, unlike its siblings. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra, on the other hand, is fueled by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The difference is in the clock speeds, the ‘for Galaxy’ SoC is clocked a bit higher. That shouldn’t really play a role in your choice, though. Now, the Galaxy S24 Ultra comes with 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 flash storage. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra offers up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 flash storage.
It is worth saying that both of these phones do offer outstanding performance. They both handle regular, everyday tasks with ease. They’re smooth and very responsive. The same can be said for gaming as well, actually. We did not notice any excessive heat, not even during longer gaming sessions, and they can both play the most demanding games from the Google Play Store without a problem. They’re not technically gaming smartphones, but they do the job really well, they are flagship phones after all.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Battery
A 5,000mAh battery sits inside the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra, on the other hand, carries a 5,000mAh battery as well. Now, both of these phones do offer great battery life, but the Galaxy S24 Ultra takes the cake, at least based on our testing. Getting over the 8-hour screen-on time mark is possible on both smartphones, though the Galaxy S24 Ultra can take things even further than that.
It will all depend on your usage, of course. Such numbers may be more difficult to reach if you do count in gaming sessions in there, of course. Still, even with some gaming included, we managed to get great battery life from both of these smartphones. Both devices will be more than enough for most people to get through the day, the vast majority of people, actually, so that’s not something you should be worried about.
When it comes to charging, the OPPO Find X7 Ultra blows the Galaxy S24 Ultra out of the water. It supports 100W wired, 50W wireless, and 10W reverse wireless charging. On top of that, it comes with a charger in the box. The Galaxy S24 Ultra offers 45W wired, 15W wireless, and 4.5W reverse wireless charging. It does not have a charger in the box. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra does charge much faster. In fact, wireless charging on the OPPO Find X7 Ultra is faster than wired charging on the Galaxy S24 Ultra.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs OPPO Find X7 Ultra: Cameras
The Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 200-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultrawide unit (120-degree FoV), a 10-megapixel telephoto camera (3x optical zoom), and a 50-megapixel periscope telephoto camera (5x optical zoom). The OPPO Find X7 Ultra, on the other hand, includes a 50-megapixel main camera, a 50-megapixel ultrawide unit (123-degree FoV), a 50-megapixel periscope telephoto (2.8x optical zoom), and a 50-megapixel periscope telephoto camera (6x optical zoom).
These are some of the best camera smartphones on the market, to say the least. So do have in mind that you’ll likely be happy with the performance from both of them. Still, the OPPO Find X7 Ultra does have the edge in terms of hardware, and it is also backed by Hasselblad. We did notice a lot of difference in terms of output and mostly prefer the results from the OPPO Find X7 Ultra. The Galaxy S24 Ultra did win in some scenarios, though.
Images from the OPPO Find X7 Ultra did tend to offer better colors more often than not. That especially goes in demanding scenarios when there wasn’t enough light in the image or something like that. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra also tended to provide more detail, and that is especially true when it comes to its ultrawide, and periscope telephoto cameras. Both smartphones did a great job in HDR conditions, and depending on the scene, they also did a great job in low light.
The OPPO Find X7 Ultra tends to leave the shadows a bit darker in order to provide a more realistic image. The Galaxy S24 Ultra tends to brighten up shadows whenever it can. The Galaxy S24 Ultra tended to overdo it with processing a bit more often. Ultrawide and periscope telephoto images ended up looking better on the OPPO Find X7 Ultra more often than not, especially up to 10x zoom. The OPPO Find X7 Ultra tended to offer better and more natural-looking bokeh.
You will find a set of stereo speakers on both of these smartphones. The fact of the matter is, that both sets of speakers offer great audio output. They’re both more than loud enough, and you won’t really have to deal with any distortion at higher volumes.
What you will not find on either phone, however, is an audio jack. You can always utilize their Type-C ports to connect your headphones via a wire, though. Bluetooth 5.3 is supported on the Galaxy S24 Ultra, while the OPPO Find X7 Ultra offers Bluetooth 5.4.
