With media reports and various reviews having been around for a while now on this upcoming device to be released in NZ on or around June 13th, I am interested to hear others opinions on this flagship challenger to some of the more mainstream handsets out there from the likes of Samsung, Oneplus, Huawei, etc.

 

The spec sheet is quite comparable to other top tier flagships that have been released such as the S20/Ultra, and the Oneplus 8 Pro, and even with the lack of wireless charging, it seems to be a real contender in the field and one that I am giving some serious consideration to.  I have found the camera reviews of the S20 Ultra to be a little disappointing. That coupled with the underperforming Exynos version being the only official version available in NZ has all but written off this as a potential device for me to consider.  The screen problems that seem to be causing a stir for the Oneplus 8 Pro are a concern for me.  I had a similar "green screen" issue with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and do not wish to have those issues in another expensive phone.  With the phone now being available in other markets since early March, there doesn't seem to be any major negatives about the phone, although I am open to other opinions on the device.

You should assume that OPPO and OnePlus will have similar issues. They have the same parent company and share supply chains.

That vegan leather finish is epic. Very tempted, especially given the camera issues on my OnePlus 8 Pro.

While both have similar displays, most likely manufactured by Samsung, it would be highly unlikely that they would come from the same batch and both be faulty.  I know the problems with the green screen and black "crush" issues on the Oneplus were addressed in an update, but this does not seem to have solved the problem for a number of users which suggests a hardware defect.  I think that given the similarities of the two phones, either would stand well against the other (wireless charging and same parentage aside).

I'd like to add, I'm not batting for either side, I'm just trying to gauge the best phone for me.  I've had wireless charging on previous phones and never needed the feature, so it really does come down to the pros vs cons of each one.

It is known that OnePlus have historically improved on their cameras with firmware updates.  One could surmise that this will most likely be the case with the 8 Pro.

Pre-order bundle is out. UE Boom, Enco Free true wireless earphones, and also $400 account credit if you get it through Spark/Voda/2D. Not bad.

Why does it seem like PBtech are now defaulting to their pricing being without gst? There seems to be no real reason of doing that other than to deceive.

From Vodafone (who is now an OPPO distributor):

 

 

One week before a range of new 5G smartphones start to hit the shelves around New Zealand, Vodafone is delighting customers with an awesome pre-sale offer in partnership with OPPO.

 

Vodafone’s Consumer Director Carolyn Luey says, “With 5G now live across large parts of New Zealand, we’re hearing from Kiwis they want access to a greater range of devices so they can take advantage of the faster speeds and greater reliability evident in the next generation mobile network. Vodafone customers can now access future technologies at an affordable price with these awesome and sophisticated smartphones, OPPO Find X2 Pro 5G and the Find X2 Lite 5G.

 

“5G is an exponential leap forward in speed and connectivity – benefits that customers can experience on Vodafone’s live 5G network with OPPO’s new range of devices, added to the data certainty of our Endless Data plans.

 

“Starting from $799, these are the most affordable 5G smartphones on the market and we’re offering some generous add-ons for value-driven Kiwis including a free speaker and wireless ear buds to further entice technology enthusiasts.”

 

Pre-orders of the new OPPO Find X2 Pro 5G with Interest Free on a $60 Endless Data Plan or above will get a massive $900 of value in the package they receive. Customers will save $402 off with Interest Free, plus receive a free UE Boom 3 speaker (worth $279 RRP) and OPPO Enco Free Wireless Buds (worth $219 RRP) via redemption.

 

Business customers will also receive $900 of value when pre-ordering the OPPO Find X2 Pro 5G, with Interest Free on Vodafone’s Red+ Business Unlimited $69.56 (excl. GST) Open Term Plan.

 

The X2 Series features outstanding camera and video capabilities and aesthetically-pleasing design. While the Find X2 Lite ($799 RRP) shares many of the flagship features found on the Find X2 Pro ($1,899 RRP), the entry-level version is priced to make premium accessible to Kiwis.

 

The Find X2 Pro 5G is available in Ceramic Black from 5 June 2020.

 

The Find X2 Lite 5G is available in two colours: Moonlight Black & Pearl White from 12 June 2020. 

 

“We’re also pleased to offer Kiwis the OPPO A72 4G smartphone, which will be available on 12 June for $499 in Vodafone stores – a 4G option for customers at a time when New Zealand is transitioning from 4G to 5G.”

 

The pre-sale offer for the OPPO Find X2 Pro 5G smartphone will run from 8am Friday 29 May 2020 to midnight Thursday 4 June 2020. More information can be found at https://www.vodafone.co.nz/oppo

I know, but previously it defaulted to inclusive, now it defaults to exclusive.

Went to PB Tech yesterday and got mine early. Pretty great so far. Got the one in black and it's considerably heavier than the OnePlus 8 Pro. The two phones are basically near identical from the front as well.

A solid option for anyone that wants more camera power and a better deal in general. Now just waiting for the boom and the enco free to come in...

Honestly looking at picking a X2 Pro from VF, Coming from a P20 Pro and it looks like a strong contender against the S20 Plus 5G but a bit cheaper and Samsung issues





Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Thinking of using my Trade Up next month to go from the S10+ to the Find X2 Pro. Reckon it looks a better bet than the Samsung 20 series...

Ok so this is a weird one, I've been a Samsung/Huawei owner forever but on my Find X 2 PRO i've started getting full screen ad's when I unlock, No new apps just the same load from my P20 Pro. If I bring up the app overview it's showing up as a "partners" app but I can't see it installed :/ I dont think I've been malware'd but it's possible I guess, Is this an Oppo thing or something different?

Very strange. Would you be able to show any screenshots for this? The first thing that comes to mind is your region you set it to, possibly. 

 

I don't seem to have any ads at all, and I'm using a Find X2 Pro from 2D.
