Does anyone know of any NZ stores you can go to try the One Plus 8 Pro? Would be great to have a play around with a test device before buying.

Still holding out for PBtech...!

Not sure of this is allowed but would anyone be interested in selling me their OnePLus 8 pro case that came out of the box?  I scuffed my one up but I really like it.

 

Thanks

Hey all

 

 

 

Can anyone provide a list of places/stores that sell Oneplus phones in NZ?

 

I can't make up my mind to whether to go with 7 pro/7T pro/8 pro? 

 

 

 

Does anyone know when Pb Tech's Oneplus 8 sale will go live?

 

 

 

TIA!

Just search for Oneplus 8 pro on pricespy or priceme.

 

 

 

Definitely go for 8pro. price might be a few hundred bucks more but the display, battery life, performance, CAMERA, its just the best phone out right now - all in my opinion obviously.

Hard to argue when many sites have stated the price differential was deliberate to make the Pro stand out as a REAL flagship this year and it is.

 

Conversely I think the P40Pro at $900 after rebate and a watch is a much better deal, has the same primary sensor so should beat all other flagships in that area. Of course the 1080p 960fps is at 720p and you lose the 5x optical OIS. I guess it depends how serious a camera phone is. No doubt the 5x zoom with cropping makes for a pocket travel camera. But the price.

Many good options this year but the OP8 pro looks so damn fluid and fast on the reviews. Great picking.

I'm just holding out for PBtech to release it so I can buy it in store...

I looked on PriceMe but reluctant to buy it online since unfamiliar with any of the retailers...

Out of curiosity, what rebate are u taking about with p40? They just give a bonus watch don't they?

Just buy from Supero, cheap and very fast shipping end the owner is good at contacting you.

How are people finding their phones?

 

Anyone have the green screen and black crush issue?

No issues so far from my side at all. My only main gripes with it is the camera bump and the curved screen - but I'm happy to live with both as it's been amazing with everything else 😄

Just be mindful that they may not be declaring the full value for GST/Duty and therefore you run a slight risk. Aside from that, yes they're great.

The more I use it the more I enjoy it. Slick phone, snappy and great OS. Only issue is with the night mode camera having no controls over shutter speed and the screen seems to miss touches regularly.
