You're paying for the 5g with the OnePlus. It was one of the cheapest options for a 5g phone when I recently was picking out a new phone.

Personally I decided that 5g wasn't that big a deal for me and got a Pixel 3 for a lot cheaper. Free storage on Google photos for original quality photos and videos taken on it before 2022, a great camera and a two year old made this an easy choice.

MrMobile, Supersaf etc reviews weren't too positive which put me off a bit. Maybe I just need to do some more research

Reviews do look great. People will just have to accept they OnePlus are no longer the budget friendly flagship killer they used to be.

Currently on the 5T, wouldn't mind a camera upgrade..

I have a Samsung S20 plus but with a trade in only paid around €550 , the OP Pro 8 looks on a par but they definitely arent a budget handset anymore, someone else will come along and take their place and so on and so on.

The S20+ is €1129 direct from Samsung at the moment and that's only for a 128GB version. The OP8 Pro in 128GB is only €919. That's still €210 of a difference. And would you not compare the Pro to the Ultra seeing as both are the top spec options?

Either way, people kept asking for IP certification, better cameras and wireless charging and now that they've got it they're complaining prices have risen to much. It's hard to please everyone but these items add to the cost.

I think when OP launched originally there was about €300 of a difference between itself and the Samsung S6? Could be wrong on that though.

I'm gone past the stage of paying big money for phones so won't be buying anything for the moment but both the S20 and OP8 look good options.

Cant recommend the 7T enough for people who are put by the price, there really doesn't seem to be much difference between the 7T and non Pro 8

7T and the 8 maybe? Some significant differences between the 7T and the 8Pro imo.

Onyx black the only option is both base models isn’t great.

Couple of other colours that aren’t there at all as well.

Has anyone been able to work out why the Irish price is €20 higher than the rest of Europe?

I presume it's due to 23% vat whereas it's lower in most mainland Europe? Italys the same

It seems to vary. Germany is €699, Spain in €709, Italy is €719. I have no idea if the logic but the price isn't the same anywhere.

I have the OP3, thinking about an upgrade. My camera does't focus anymore and the volume buttons don't work either. I've already replaced the audio jack and the power port; think it's maybe time to send my little OP3 to the farm for old tech.

The OP8 pro is out of my price range and honestly I could only really stretch to the OP8 (128Gb version) if I thought the specs were that much better than the OP7T or OP7Tpro.

The OP7Tpro is £700 from OP themselves but cheaper used elsewhere and I'm hoping htere will be a proce drop in the next week or so when the 8 series starts arriving at people's doors. I know there has been a suggestion above of going 7T over 8 for cost, but what about the 7Tpro? How do you think that stacks up against the 8?

€688 on Amazon.co.uk, free delivery if you have Prime.

Actually, its €704 after VAT adjustment.

Dave Lee basically said thumbs up, camera and all, so that would be good enough for me.
