I really rate the Pixel 3A. Purchased the XL verison a few months ago and loving it.
However you seem really keen on a NZ based shop/parallel importer and a cheaper price point.


I can recommend Top Mobile for service, speed of delivery and delivering what is advertised. I purchased a Samsung S7 from them December last year and had no issues.


I can't speak to the warranty side as have had no issues with the phone.


Good luck with your shopping.

I have ordered a OnePlus 6 128g from Mobile Station. Will take my chances and report back to this thread with the outcome. Thanks all for your suggestions.

Of course it's totally your prerogative to elect where to buy a product from - it's your money, and you take on any risk - but I do find it somewhat confusing that you'd do so, having been pointed towards highly negative feedback about the company and the way it manages problems, and no replies to the contrary!


Retailers like that should be put out of business by people simply not purchasing from them, but in the end there'll always be enough people swayed by their prices to make it worthwhile (and I'm sure one of the ways they can provide lower prices is their sh!t post-sales service; covering CGA risk is, of course, one of the key reasons why NZ-sourced products are typically more expensive).


Good luck (though I hope you don't need it), and enjoy the phone. I really liked my OP6, especially given it still had the fingerprint reader on the back; still hate the in-screen one on my S10+.

The majority of reviews on Price Spy over the last 12 months are positive so like I said I will take my chances.
If they do not meet my expectations I will for what it is worth express my disappointment on this forum and on price Spy.
Likewise a good result will be praised accordingly.
There is nothing like good or bad publicity to effect a business.

OnePlus 6 took around 10 days to arrive from Mobile Station. Phone is new and works perfectly. Great phone.
