The Oppo Find X is one of the best lower premium smartphones on the market - especially if you hate notches and love photography. With a true edge-to-edge screen and innovative pop-up camera, it's a bright beacon of originality in a sea of samey Androids. Currently, you can get $500 off the Find X at JB Hi-Fi when you bundle it with a $65 phone plan. Here are the details!
