do you get a screen protector too ?? if you bought from pbtech ??

 



You don't get a separate protector but there is factory one already applied on the phone out of box.

 

 

 

Which is bloody terrible and was removed day one.

FYI and not happy about it myself but looks like Facebook rolled up with a bunch of cash and OP installed Facebook and Instagram both of which are removable however it leaves 3 unremovable packages on the phone

Dxomark results are out and you'll be disappointed. On a different note, I wonder why you're picking oppo find x2 as an option and not Xiaomi Mi 10 pro as a cheaper but a good alternative? By the way, if you're on Kogan Network, may work on your device too. Screenshot from a non-1plus8pro device.

I had inquired about the Mi 10 Pro with Xiaomi NZ and they advised that the device would not officially be released in NZ.  It's a shame as I was giving that phone some serious consideration.

Purchased mine from wonda. Arrived in 4 days. By the way, I regret what I said about oneplus 8 pro's camera. It has good cameras, I was just expecting it to be on par with find x2, mi10pro or s20u. But it's above ip11pro and s20+.

Which is why DXO is absolute trash. Most reviewers agree the S20+ is better than the Ultra, I came from the iPhone 11 Pro and it's superior to the OnePlus in every way.

Finally updating from my Oneplus 3t, looking at purchasing from Supero as my budget is $1k. My options are either the 8 or the 7t pro. What would be your go to? I prefer the camera layout of the 7t.

The camera on the 8 pro has blown me away! So sharp, depth vision is incredible and colours pop so well. Really impressive.

Unfortunately, the 8 pro is way more than I want to pay right now, I have heard great things though.

I thought the OP8PRO did pretty good on DXOMark given its using the IMX689 main processor which is smaller than the competition (not by much). It goes Huawei 40 pro, Samsung s20+/Xiaomi 10 pro, OP8PRO.

The biggest differences here are the Huawei (along with using the top Sony sensor IMX700) is using if not just brand games, LEICA lenses, Samsung is using its HM1 bright sensor which is the same size as Xiaomi who are using Samsungs Bright S5KHMX (both 108Mp quad bayer style) and OP8Pro as said using the 48MP Imx689 main sensor.

There is not a lot between these cameras, especially if you have a Snap Dragon S20.

Once the Pixel 4 GCam is updated then ported I think there is going to be splitting hairs between the bottom 3 with the Huawei being the clear (but priced so) winner, given its not running play apps, personally I see value in the Xiaomi and the OP8P, given its pretty hard to get an S20 qualcomm model here.

I didnt realise the OP8P had a macro in the wide angle sensor, that makes it even more value for money IMO vs the Samsung Exynos model.

Here's a breakdown, hope it helps to choose :)

Pros of OP8:
1 Guaranteed Android upgrade that the 7T pro won't get
Bigger battery
5G (if you need it)
Taller aspect ratio (easier to hold)
The curved edges are not as pronounced as on the 7T pro ( less accidental touches)
Slightly better performance. (latest chipset)

Pros of 7T pro:
Same price for more ram and storage ( although 12gb of ram is overkill lol)
Telephoto lens instead of macro (much better!)
Cleaner display (no punch hole camera)
As of now it's more optimised due to longer supports & fixes
The lack of 5G modem may mean better battery

I am getting some serious connection issues with this phone. Won't get any notifications for hours then they'll all come piling through at once.

Could be because your battery saver is on? It happens if you activate it.
