    Will get find X3 next year this time. Current Oppo still works well for me.

      Then will get find X4 after next next year….

        Yes, that's the strategy, I don't buy the latest, I buy last gen flagship

          Your strategy is to tell everyone that new models come out every year? How is that working out for you?

          •  

            @1st-Amendment: because my current phone still works well, and by next year,the battery might be weaker for my needs. that's the time i need a new phone, and that's the time to grab last year (which is this year)'s flagship at a discount price. this is how it works. i am not saying you should change you phone every year.

            if someone is looking for a new now, then buy the x2 pro, no problem.
            i am saying I WILL, not everyone should.

    How's this compare to Oppo Reno 5G?

    • +12 votes

      Advantages of Find X2 Pro:

      1. Better screen (QHD vs FHD)
      2. IP68 Rated
      3. Better chipset (SD865 vs SD855)
      4. More RAM (12GB vs 8GB)
      5. More memory (up to 512GB vs 256GB)
      6. Faster storage (UFS 3.0 vs UFS 2.1)
      7. Bigger battery (4260 mAh vs 4065 mAh)
      8. Faster charging (65W vs 20W)

      Haven't gone into camera differences as I couldn't be bothered reading comparison reviews.

      Better in everyway, except price? This has ip68 rating too which was a first for Oppo.

        only downer imo is the curved 2.5d screen

        •  

          Agreed, and sound quality

      •  

        Fwiw IP67 rating on my R15 Pro has been rock solid.

    What’s the android update policy for Oppo Find series? Is it 2 major updates?

    • +3 votes

      I was looking around info for the Find X3 and came across this. Looks like 2 years of security update + 2 major Android versions. Should be the same for Find X2.
      Despite overall great review, this is actually a deal breaker for me as 2 years are just too short imo. For reference, Apple promises 5 years, Samsung 4 and most competitors 3.

        Android Auto, but this has been happing accross a high number of devices running android 10 and android 11 when AA was incorporated into the operating system as apposed to stand alone AA app.

    What's difference between Telstra version and normal version? Can this be used when traveling overseas with an overseas sim?

    •  

      Hence this phone only has SINGLE sim, so can't see the difference between these two versions.

      •  

        Even the normal version aka retail version, just single sim only.

    •  

      When you boot the phone you will see Telstra logo I guess.

    I have this one and loved every bit of it…from the camera, fast charging, space. The only thing lacking is HDMI output via USB C and some of the camera light / water shot features other cameras have.

    •  

      How have you found battery life and camera performance compared to other leaders of that time?

      •  

        Battery life is ok, my huawei mate20 pro lasted longer but I kinda expected this due to a bigger screen and faster processor. The camera is sharp though and Im pretty happy, a step above or on par with the leaders. Its in the top 10 of the dxo mark ratings.

        •  

          I've had this phone for a bit over a month and also had a mate20 pro previously. Agree that the huawei had a better battery but that thing was a beast. The supervooc 2.0 charging on this makes up for it though. Only issue I've come across is trying finding another legit 65W supervooc 2.0 charger (oppo or aftermarket). They don't seem to be readily available. The only ones I can find are greymarket/second hand ones and other forums states alot of these don't hit the same charging speed. It would be great to have 2 super chargers - for work and home!

            @btribe: Just a heads up that althought sold out, i bought a spare one off the oppo sit ebefor ethe 14/04 - it was about $59 for the same super vooc charger. MIght be worth coughing up to have one for home and one for travel/the work etc… the charger cables have been abit easy to get supervooc ones, which seem to make no difference to the "VOOC" cables they give you in the phone box (despite being a supervooc charger - puzzles me?)

    I think it would be better to highlight (Ceramic Black) on the title, as two other colours (Vegan Leather Orange) & (Green) are still RRP

  • +2 votes

    Should put 512gb on the title or description, it has more storage than most phone and this is an excellent price

  •  

    As per other questions - does this "telstra" version have anything different that it's an australia carrier variant? it's highlighted specifically and I dont know the difference between just buying the white label phone? I mean telstra logo doesn't matter…. does this just mean the update roll outs need to go via telstra first for software (so one added layer) vs buying the phone outright which would be Oppo direct updates?

    •  

      Telstra version might have slower firmware update

      •  

        ringing JB hi fi now.. the lady reckons it'll work in aus but not overseas. Very cheap for aussie use but it would kill me if i neeeded a diffferent phone to use overseas when travel finally resumes rather than just reusing the phone.

        •  

          isn't the phone unlocked?

        • +1 vote

          I would check with Oppo directly about that, doesn't sound right

          •  

            @vsixtyfour: I ended up buying it as i rang another jb hi fi store and the guy there seemed to no his script well enough and seemed to be no issue of using it overseas. Ive never heard of unlocked phones not working in a region physically either…. if its a locked phone then yes. But the old days of unlocked phones seems largely gone given how fluid travel and phones are these days.

            •  

              @SaberX: The only country current phones have any issues with when traveling overseas is America. This is due to the phones in the US , often having no SIM slot at all as the work on different infrastructure and this become less of an issue as there networks are adapting. In saying that, it depends on your networks partnership with the carrier in the US and the hardware of the phone. It would generally effect most phones in any given brand line due to is hardware. For example, if this was an an issue with the X2 pro line, it would effect the majority of X2 pro's and not just the Telstra version.

  •  

    very tempted, price wont' be seen again… just not sure about what the 'telstra carrier variant' means… from what I've read in the past this phone would be a flagship leader in the 2020 era correct when comparing the camera to say the s20 lineup and other competition? However, it wouldn't stand up against the s21 line or the find x3 pro new gen?

    One thing I didnt see is this doesn't have an aux jack port does it? So only bluetooth audio all the way? no expandable storage but it's 512 gb so that's pretty beefy….

    I dont know what the shopback thing is but does it take business hours to process? if so i wont risk this going out of stock if this will only process after the long weekend (to save 3%).

    So little time to make a decision! Was just about to push the button on the poco x3 pro deal… but for this price, gosh! yay or nay?!

    I'm guessing this can't be used overseas?

    Very very very tempted to buy it now. I was going to pre order the Find X3 Lite but this is much better value! But if it can't be used overseas, it's a deal breaker…

      I used an unlocked cheap Optus oppo phone overseas just fine, so can't see why an unlocked Telstra phone won't?

  • +4 votes

    Ok just got off phone with JB Hi fi. THe lady confirmed with a more educated workmate - they said and confirmed this phone won't work overseas. Which is a killer for this deal for me. We can't travel now, nor do we travel often, but over the years we'd travel and not being able to use the phone is a killer for me.

    Happy for anyone to say to the contrary -b ut supposedly this will only work in australia, hence why it's discounted heavily.

            @dealsforlife: well I rang up ANOTHER store and the guy insists it works overseas. Says it has the telstra logo slapped on it and is for the telstra carrier but being unlocked it works overseas - no problem.

            So now i have a $750 problem - trust one JB hi fi guy, or another? This guy seemed pretty clued up though about the phone. vs the lady at the other store asked a colleague who was 'more knowledgeable' and said he mentioned the hardware's different - so doesn't work overseas.

            This other store had a much more detailed explanation of jb hi fi stocking telstra owned phones as these are what they need to work the system supposedly when signing up on their plan…

            Might take the plunge! just a pity there's no headphone jack!

            •  

              @SaberX: Yes it is a $750 problem! I was going to pick up in store tomorrow but I believe JB is closed. I will call them on Saturday morning but I have a strong feeling that this phone will be OzBargained by then

                @dealsforlife: why not just buy it on click and collect? and pick it up saturday ? at least you'll have it by then?

                Edit: also if you dont buy it online you cant get the 5% off discount code. So buy it and click and collect it? so they'll put it aside?

                •  

                  @SaberX: Yes that's the plan but I am worried that it may not work overseas. Also, I want to pay cash which I have saved. I guess I can't have it all.

                    @dealsforlife: yeah… for this price it wont ever get that cheap. lets both take the risk haha. bank your cash into your credit card or bank account tonight or tomorrow if your worried and just pay online now?

                    Edit:

                    Just placed my order!

                    Now the anxious wait until Sat hoping the click and collect has gone through, ok!

Hopefully first in first serve and they pick the order tonight before they go home! or after store close haha.

                            @dealsforlife: Never crossed my mind but that would be pretty cruel haha. Only thing I'm regretting now is realising i can aux cable to my old car stereo as there's no headphone jack… and some saying updates arent frequent or kept up after a short time. Currently my samsung s8 still gets patches for security - pretty important given how things alwaye evolve. Shame if oppo sell and throw out support after a short while. I suppose at this price its a fraction of a s20 let alone s21.

                              @SaberX: Buy a usb car charger with fm transmitter - I've used Roidmi and more recently Blitzwolf. You'll never look back

                                @CachePC: Hmm so your saying usb charges your find x2 pro then transmits your Spotify or audio output by fm to the radio of car? Only i ssue is i used to use fm transmitters in the 2000s pre all these aux cable cars etc and worst part was getting noise interference…. :(

                              @SaberX: For $20ish you can get yourself a Bluetooth head unit.

                                @Richardc: Does that convert cigarette charger into a Bluetooth unit? Thing is i need to get a feed to my car stereo which is aux cable or fm radio. Not a new enough car with bluetooth car screen built in unfortunately.

                                In order to use my old headphone earbuds i was thinking an usb c to aux cable adapter. Cant charge concurrently but then i could continue running my usb c to the car aux cable i presume? Which would solve the problem until i get a new car?

                          •  

                            @dealsforlife: Picked mine up at 9am open today! Wont get to open it until tonight…. i even managed to return it and pay with gift cards i organised last night so got another 5% off woot! Will needa wait for sales team to process a refund but otherwise just a slight inconvenience on credit card balance.

                            Did you end up getting it??

                    @dealsforlife: I previously bought a Telstra branded unlocked ZTE Urbane T22, & had no problems using it overseas in Europe.

                    Though that was back in 2014, & was a $40 purchase, so not much of a risk :P

                    Been looking at this phone for a few weeks. For $765 I think it's worth the risk.

        well if you believe Paul from Armadale store he seemed to know his stuff… as opposed to the other store I rang up. He tells me it isnt ovserseas locked, updates come from Oppo, and software can be deleted (telstra) so not preloaded bloatware supposedly?

        Just a telstar logo slapped on? Even if there's some bloatware, if it works overseas, < $800 is great. I'm gonna push the button too and get it! beats hoping there'll be another ebay allphones deal at $1,060, as most jb hi fi deals and office works were down to $1,199 lately at best.

          I've gone over to oppos site and found no special firmware version for Telstra ones.

          On the whirlpool thread people who bought Telstras ones from previous deals seems to be operating on the same firmware as well.

          The JB ad clearly states it's unlocked from Telstra and works on all Aust carriers. Frankly I haven't heard of phones that are network unlocked not working overseas bar the usual band compatibility issues.

          I think we're pretty safe here imo.
          Worst is a Telstra logo here and there with some bloatware.

                @arman1201: I felt the same. Was anxious and got there at 9am to get it. Thankfully it was picked just before opening and i got it woo. Even got gift cards bought retrospectively after i realised its 5% off. So now waiting on original refund but at least I got the gift cards in

    •  

      i've literally never heard of any unlocked phones "not working overseas". bands are bands. if the phone has them, it doesn't matter what company's broadcasting them.

      also you'll find that most of the major carriers around the world are actually owned by the same ~4 telco conglomerates, just under different names.

            @jassssone: ahhh damn, i didnt buy any off previous sales or deals. for 3% off $799 that's $24….. for the chance of waiting for gift cards to arrive while im about to head out to sports and this deal selling out.. probably not worth it as this is a good $300 off the deals that were at $1060-1150 in previous ozbargains. The deals are far and infrequent and with x3 pro here I doubt we'll see much x2 pro stock.

            Camera is good so definitely better than dropping $370 on the pocco x3 pro deal currently.

    What does Telstra version mean, i would consider buying this phone but don't really know if this means im locked to a telstra sim or not
