Benchmarks aside, the Oppo Find X5 Pro 5G is a powerful smartphone. I ran several apps at once and hardly faced any glitches.

I also found the Oppo Find X5 Pro 5G to heat up a bit, more noticeable during video playbacks and video calls. Surprisingly, the game-centric features have better heat-dissipating support, ensuring it doesn't heat up while playing any game. Overall, the battery on the phone is good, but it depends on the app you're running.
