Oppo Find X2 Pro review: Still going strong in 2021

If you weren't paying attention to Oppo before, now's the time to start. Although a behemoth in Asia, Oppo is still relatively new to Western markets. The past two years have seen a few high-profile launches for the brand, but Oppo still has a way to go in terms of brand recognition and perception in Europe. So last year, the company simplified its smartphone portfolio, positioning the Find X line as its main high-end brand. Launched a year ago in spring 2020, the Oppo Find X2 Pro isn't an outlandish, borderline experimental device like the original Find X.

If you've been eagerly awaiting the next season of Rick & Morty, Hulu's animated series Solar Opposites is just the thing to tide you over and we have all the details on how you can watch the show's second season online. There are quite a few similarities between Solar Opposites and Rick & Morty because it was co-created by Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan who worked as a writer's assistant on the show.

In Solar Opposites, Korvo (Justin Roiland), Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone), Terry (Thomas Middleditch), and Jesse (Mary Mack) are a team of four aliens who crash land on Earth after escaping their exploding homeworld.
