Hi All,

 

 

 

I'm new here.  Have also ordered from Supero.  And it's on the way.  Very excited.  Ordered on Sunday. Will let you know when it arrives.

 

 

 

 

It's arrived! :-) 

 

 

Nice!

 

Are you on Vodafone? If so, would you please also test to confirm if 5G is working or not, assuming you live in one of the initial 5G launch areas?

Don't need to answer if you don't want to but I want to ensure I buy from a reputable seller. Do they disclose the proper full amount in the invoice/packaging? Thanks.

I see Supero have the 8GB models for $1100. That seems perfectly adequate to me. I feel 6GB is the current need moving on from 4 and 8GB is a couple years future proofing. I think 12GB is just over the top and wont make any IRL benefits before one moves onto a new phone.

I found it odd many companies using a quad bayer type setup using multiple brand sensors. In samsug (and Xiaomi) case it makes sense with the 108Mp Sensor being used for main camera but both companies using IMX processors for wide screen.

So was good to see OP8 using the imx586 (for everything).and IMX471 for selfie.

Sorry for the delay.

 

It is an IN2020. No problems so far.  Fantastic phone!

Thanks. Ordered and got super quick delivery which was awesome. However, they did disclose a much lesser amount on the package/shipping so I'm not sure if it's all above board unfortunately. Just a heads up as a lot of people were burnt with the UDS Mart situation. 

Phone on the other hand is amazing. Just having issues with WiFi disconnecting everytime the screen is off even with battery optimisation turned off. Both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

Mine has shipped from Honk Kong, left there on Friday and arrived in Auckland processing yesterday. Lets see how disgustingly long it takes our terrible couriers to get it to me in Christchurch. GST is included in original price and payment.

Im really liking the value of the OP8pro 8GB version.

But what is its benefits over the base galaxy s20, aside from 33h more battery life in gsmarenas battery drainer test?

One thing I can think of, often its hard to get GCams for Exynos SOCs, but Im pretty sure the S20 has one already. I didnt expect the s20 base model to have a qhd screen. for me it nearly makes the ultra look terrible value for twice the price.

 

Where you can get an OP8 pro 8Gb version for $1200, which is very similar to the s20 base.

So Im just curious of the benefits of the OP over the Galaxy?

Im praying for you Bro, have had 4 terrible NZ Post courier experiences in a row.

In January before the Virus was even making waves here.

Only number 2. was not express/next day, tracked and meant to get signature which none did. I get during lock down no signature but at least come to the door knock and leave a flappn cake on the door step not in the letter box (luckily it was rectangular and we have a large opening box)

1. a 50g overnight prepaid priority bag track n trace. 11 working days.

 

2. a router from BP, 8 working days.

During lock down.

 

3. A cake and other stuff sent to Mrs from work (she had a 6 hour surgery) from a Cake Shop 4km away, 8 working days

 

4. Edible stuff my Mrs ordered 6 working days

Complained to NZ Post on every occasion, Sorry Sir, thats it. Fn waste of space NZ Post, if its Government owned still they need to sack the whole Organisation and start again from bottom to top.

Hey guys,

Really keen to buy this and was waiting on PBtech. Do we know if they are offering any incentives like they are doing for the P40?

What other sites are safe to purchase from?

Thanks!

obliterator77: Hey guys,

From the PeaBody Tech promotion page:

 

 

  • NZ safety certification
  • An ANZ certified 20W fast charger
  • A real 24 month local warranty
  • An awesome bundle deal we can’t wait to show you

 

I imagine it will be along the lines of the previous ones (headphone/bluetooth speaker/fast charger etc).

 

Personally, spending this much money I would be waiting to purchase from a legit source. Or at least see if the price difference between PB Tech and grey-market suppliers is great enough to risk it. Which it usually isn't IMO, but sounds like other people in this thread have been successful so there is that.
