I'd nearly be tempted to sell my S10+ for 400 and get the Nord instead!

Why would you do that? Fair enough if you were pocketing some cash and getting the Nord

90Hz panel, much better UI, better, faster software updates. Snapdragon instead of Exynos (admittedly a less powerful Snapdragon, but still). 5G capability.

I also find the curved screen really annoying, I would've switched it for the 8 or 8 Pro already if they didn't have one, too.

It's £349 for the 8GB/128GB variant on Amazon if you're a Prime Member.

Be interesting to see reviews for the OnePlus Buds they released today alongside the Nord. They look good on paper and are a reasonable price, although a bit ugly to look at.

I was waiting for the Nokia 8.3 5G to launch because that seems like a good phone but with it consistently only being teased without any real launch date the Nord might just be something for me.

I thought of OnePlus 8 but giving my restrictive travel I think a mid range might just be good enough.

Been looking at a couple of the unboxing videos around. Looks like a good phone. Currently have a pocophone F1. Did pre-order give you a discount or something?

Apparently?
It's all a bit confusing tbh.

https://www.oneplus.com/ie/oneplus-nord

The price listed there is €409, but when you use the pre-order code, it's still €409. When you go to checkout, it shows the price as €430 with a €20 discount.

So I'm very confused. I haven't pulled the trigger yet, I need time to look properly. The €399 price applies to Germany.

Buy from Amazon for £349? Works out at €383.

I guess the idea here is that if you pre-order now you'll get it by the end of the month and it won't be sold out.

I was going to say it was wildly optimistic, but I see they sold out 3 rounds of pre orders!

I think the buds would be ok value with a OnePlus phone, but otherwise not worth it, basic enough features and quality. If other earbuds had AAC only they'd have longer battery life too as it's the lowest bit rate codec.
Not in the market for a phone at the moment but it looks decent enough for €400.

Whats the “surprise gift” thing when ordering? Options are flagship camera, 90hz display etc.
