OPPO Find N2 Flip: Here’s why it’s worth checking out

It might be time to flip to OPPO's newest foldable.

Flip phones are making a comeback. This a statement you’ve probably heard numerous time for the past couple of years, but it never really stuck. Some might say they’re too flimsy, expensive, and or gimmicky. In spite of this, several brands have been investing heavily in foldables, and with releases like the OPPO Find N2 Flip, you’ll see advances coming rapidly to this space.

Flip phones can offer an alternative to standards we’ve come to accept as the norm.  Foldables now feature flagship-level specs which can rival traditional smartphones, as well as a host of other benefits. Here are seven reasons why it might just be time to switch to a flip.

The best of both worlds

Some users want a device that fits snugly in their pockets, while others believe in “the bigger, the better” when it comes to a display. These qualities aren’t mutually exclusive, at least in the case of a flip phone. The OPPO Find N2 Flip features the same sized screen you’re used to, with a display that’s barely there. You can simply fold it in half and pop it into your pocket, or unfurl it to full size to experience its immense display. Also, you can’t deny the satisfying “clamshell clap” sound every time you close it up.

Less screen time, more “me” time

The fear of missing out is arguable the primary reason why we’re stuck to our phones 24/7. Just how can you curb our social media uptime and touch the figurative grass without being out of the loop? The OPPO Find N2 Flip makes the cover screen a priority. Clad with the largest cover screen in the industry, you can keep your phone shut but still receive notifications, so you don’t miss anything important. 

Built to last

The OPPO Find N2 Flip takes pride in durability. Being TÜV Rheinland-certified, you’re guaranteed 400,000 folds/unfolds, and while we’re no math experts, there’s definitely a lot of folding to go around. With 44W SUPERVOOC, you can go from 0 to 100% battery in less than one hour. According to OPPO Lab, it’s the fastest charging and longest battery life on any flip.

Happy snapping

For a lot of smartphone users, camera quality is the top priority. The OPPO Find N2 Flip continues the Hasselblad Camera for Mobile collaboration, boasting a 50MP rear camera, a 32MP front-facing camera, and an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, which rivals flagship bar style phones. Thanks to FlexForm Mode, trickier selfies are made so much easier.

Your phone, your way

The Flip features all the customization options you would expect from an Android phone: wallpapers, photos, icons, backgrounds, etc. Aside from this, you also get various cover screen options. This added customizability on your cover screen helps show everyone a bit of your personality, whether it’s a selfie, a groupfie, or a nice view of of your favorite anime waifu (or husbando, of course).  If photos aren’t your cup of tea, the Flip’s new Interactive Pets feature includes a bunch of cool, interactive critters who’ll make your cover screen their home. 

Variety is the spice of life

While the decade has seen the usual large, brick-shaped smartphone design, sliders and clamshell phones were all the rage in the late 90s and into the 00s. A little bit of nostalgia never hurt anyone, so it’s high time we had the option to relive the good old days. We miss that smooth flip to open, and satisfying snap to close. It’s always nice to have the option to mix it up, and experience another way of using smartphones without suffering on specs.

Industry-leading but price-beating

We can’t deny that foldables are premium devices. The advanced technology along with quality materials and intensive manufacturing, comes at a cost. The mission of OPPO is “Technology for Mankind, Kindness for the World.” This is why they’ve dedicated extra effort to making this groundbreaking product available to more people.

So, is there such a thing as an affordable flip phone? Comparatively, yes. OPPO managed to bring top-tier quality while having quite the competitive edge when it comes to pricing. With foldable phone specs to challenge even high-end bar-shaped phones, it’s safe to say that you get more bang for your buck with this flip.
