I would say we will be look at $1300 for 8gig / 128gb,  $1500 for the 12gig one.

 

But who knows :P

Personally I am looking at the 8GB 256gb version, on places like Ali it's around $1250. Once NZ stock has landed I would wait a month. If you look on the pricespy charts its dosent take long for the price to come down a substantial amount.

For everything gcam related go to the themes and app section of your phone's xda thread. Or alternatively

Whilst I'm a big fan of OP (from the OP Forum Invites etc days) I think the overall package just isn't as enticing in NZ.

 

Before PB made it available to purchase locally the option was to buy direct from OP's international website (as I did for the OPO and OP3). It just feels that other flagships tend to have great bundles attached with them, especially with the recent Galaxy bundles (1 for 1 S10E?!). 

 

 

 

All in all, great phone, great specs - design had always been rather predictable since the OP5 days (as compared to Oppo) but nothing wrong with it.

I do wish one of the telcos like 2d would pick them up as a brand.

Sounds like the battery is also a bit meh

 

 

 

 

Its probably because of the 90Hz screen refresh rate that's the culprit, having said that it apparently has the option to turn the refresh rate back down to 60Hz, which theoretically should improve battery performance.

 

 

 

 

Yep, good feature. MrWhoseTheBoss seemed to allude to the fact they made allow variable switching via an update

Mrwhosetheboss also did a video on battery drain test and OP7 pro lasted almost 6 hrs. P30 pro last the longest

OP7P does have a larger battery but the increased resolution coupled with the higher refresh rate probably chews into the battery a fair bit more. I suppose they would probably allow a 60hz mode to be coupled with power saver at some point but man 90hz is a buttery smooth beauty.

This isn't much better than the Red Magic 3: 6.65", 5000mah, 90hz, AMOLED, flat screen, front facing stereo speakers and even a 3.5mm jack. The only thing the OP7 has over it are the cameras and the OS, but I don't know if that's worth paying an extra $200/300 for.

I am surprised Noel Leeming even sells OP phones.

I am guessing these are parallel imported stock?

Has anyone ever purchased through oneplus.com using youshop? Looks like it would work out cheaper given the conversion rate + maybe 30-50 extra for shipping. Might still have to pay tax on top though which might bring it up to 1300-1400ish..

Just a bit curious, Oneplus always have a habit of creating different phones for different regions.I have seen Oneplus US models dont have an NZ 4G band of 1800. It may have changed now with newer models. Not sure after going through wiki page

A few models seem to have already disappeared off their site due to being loaded in error supposedly.
