And still no wireless charging or IP rating.

I'll stick with my 6T.

OnePlus have really dropped the ball with this launch I think, way too many options yet not delivering what people actually want.

That popup camera is such a gimmick.

I'm not sure what to do to be honest.
Ive bought the last few when they came out and I don't want to settle for anything less than the top spec but we are talking the bones of €900.
If I do buy it,I won't be buying again for 2 years..
But by then something a lot better will probably have been released.

The dollar prices won't have state taxes included. This is mentioned every single year on nearly every product launch.

Jesus. Was going to buy off Amazon as they will sell to business customers vat free, but there's a nearly €100 price difference between €820 and £800. I'm hoping you'll be able to get one delivered to Ireland off on of the euro Amazon sites.

When I posted that I had only seen the top spec UK price was £800 so I was expecting it to be nearer €900 here.
I wouldn't be going for the 699 one anyway.

Looking at the review, it's looking less likely I'll go for it.
I was 50/50ish but it's seems battery life isn't great and I want a good battery for traveling.

And of course the EU version will have vat already added, which if we added Ireland's VAT rate to the American price would bring it up to $922

Edit, that's taking the price of the most expensive phone

I bought the 5 when released, best purchase I made tech wise in years, still going strong. I dont see anything here that would tempt me to run out and buy the 7/7pro over it.

More than likely as they won't have enough time to lock it themselves

Will be unlocked at they only come in a dual sim config.

If price is same as OP then better going with OP for support in case of any issues.

Three are awful to deal with.

If price is 70-80 cheaper than I would go with Three.
