One plus 3 £336.00 o2

£336.00 @ O2
I think is a good phone. Very unusual for a O2 but still I think is a good deal.

Chinese phones should be Chinese price brackets. It should be half this price.

In the past they do not provide a VAT invoice and it appeared they under invoiced in bulk via the courier.
If one can reclaim VAT it is 20% more expensive from OnePlus.
I am not sure if things have changed. They were reported to HMRC.

Anyone know if O2 are getting the soft gold version anytime soon?

​Iphones are made in China.

But not designed in China.
Have you seen widespread advertising on television, billboards for OnePlus?

I equate OnePlus below Xiaomi and expect prices below them. Are they better than Honor, Elephone, Lenovo?
Is the brand name premium worth any more?

Compared to Chinese phones it could be classed as expensive; I get it.

On the other hand, you are buying for a high street uk shop. If something goes wrong, your dealing with o2. No crazy sending off to China etc.

So to those who vote cold, is there another SD820 device which can be bought from a UK high street shop that is cheaper?

​I read quite a few industry pundits on phones and you're the first to say oneplus is below xioami (who are also supposed to be pretty good). E.g. tech radar seem to be absolutely head over heels in love with oneplus.

I don't have a horse in this race but everyone else in the industry says one thing and you're saying something else but presenting it as gospel.

I keep hitting snooze on my bs alarm but still it rings!

You will be lucky if you can find a grey one soon. The word from china is they can't source anymore Amoled panels( do you really think they can't get an Amoled screens from samsung?) And will rebrand to S and use LCD.
Its more like the dodgy job lot they had from OPPO with pink, grey, purple areas, has finished and they don't want to pay the going rate for more.

There seem to be very few actually available from o2 as the stock evaporated when Google overpriced the Pixel last week. I ordered last Wednesday and it was supposed to take 2-3 days. Still no phone.....

At no point have I presented anything as "gospel". I have expression an opinion and you are free to disagree with it.
I am free to express it. What is boring is your claim only you can be correct. This is what is the real "bs"
Are you stating everyone else is disagreeing without evidence from everyone else? That's a bit rich.

I presume you have a OnePlus device and real experience.
I have a OnePlus device in the household and do not rate it better than Xiaomi and reported OnePlus to HMRC. They refused to provide a VAT receipt. Eventually OnePlus refunded the VAT to me as I kicked up a fuss. So, I got it at 20% less than others. Discussion with the courier was very interesting as was the low value on invoices.

​I have a oneplus 3, my cousin has a xiaomi mi4c. Comparing the two shows that both are made to a high standard with attractive designs. Xiaomi is one of the largest phone manufacturers in China whereas Oneplus are a startup, albeit with support from Oppo.

The differences between the two, software and physicalities aside, are minimal. Looking at examples from both companies, I couldn't say which was "Inferior" to the other.

Oneplus have had a flying start in this Qbusiness and have scored 4 huge successes, I hope that they keep up the impetus. They are a relatively small company in this game and are beginning see the rewards of the hard work they have done behind the scenes. Their reputation is growing and will continue to grow if their luck holds. I find that the "Inferior" argument really doesn't hold water.

Thanks all this is really interesting stuff. Seems crazy if they had supply issues why introduce their product to O2.

They didn't have many the week before either, i don't believe they had much stock in the first place. i popped into a store the day after release and they has 1.
Good luck with the Phone, if your not a member of the forum then join, because as many good things you hear there are just as many bad.

Just picked mine up. For the £, the quality of the phone makes it a total steal. See you on XDA. :D

Nearly ever device from budget up are made from the same material's so they all feel and look the same lol. The OP3 is a good looking device, but that's not where the problems lie.
Enjoy the bug fest, I was on the forum today and nothing has changed.
#26
Having spent time in China I can tell you that this is the average price for Chinese flagship phones. Anywhere between £220 and £350 is the standard rate

It will be interesting to see how quickly OP handle the bugs. Even the best phones have bugs (The Nexus 5 was a great example.) but once they are sorted, it was the best phone I've ever owned. There is also the issue of bugs coming from Google, (just look at the issue with the fingerprint readers after you lock the screen using an on screen button,) but OP have dealt with these much better than Samsung for instance. Whichever phone you buy, do your homework, find out the bugs and ask yourself how badly they will affect you.

Even if they don't sort things out, I paid half the price for top notch hardware. I can always put Cyanogenmod or a custom rom on my phone. I'm on 3-2-7 and haven't encountered any issues yet in the short time I've been using it.

You have not done your home work well enough it would seem. With each device they have made they have moved on to the next leaving the prior one with a tonne of bugs and hardware issues.
Custom roms lol just hope they have all the workarounds
As for 1/2 the price for top hardware their is an equivalent devices for 1/2 the price and others for 30% off the price of the OP3.
There is always something better and cheaper that is the industry and every device has dev these days.

Every OEM leaves there old devices with bugs when the latest and greatest is released. The difference is, some devices don't even have root or Cyanogenmod as another option. I learnt this the hard way with the Huawei P1 LTE. My point about the half price hardware is in relation to the UK. Where on the high street can I get another phone with the same specs as the OP3 for the same price? I don't want to be dealing with China if I have faulty hardware.

Unless O2 are taking full responsibility for the warranty you will be dealing with China.
There is moving on and abandoning guess which one OP falls into. Leaving a device with a camera where auto focus don't work properly is pretty bad and it still can't now. As you are about to find out with OP3, it still can't hold focus on video and OIS is all but non existent

Oh and buying a 2012 Hauwei device was not a smart move and CM supports almost every device well known devices. Where they don't there will be an unofficial version dev is really a dozen a dime these days.
Root there isn't much that you can't nowadays, the Chinese do have plenty of dev too even for the most obscure of phones and tablets.
But have fun with the device if you have the patients then good, after I saw the state of the device the memories of the OPO told me RETURN IT.

I agree real, I could be dealing with One Plus if my device becomes faulty. As most devices which are faulty, tend to be faulty from day 1, I meant that at least you are dealing with o2 in the first 30 days. This is still so much better than the other Chinese phones that you cant buy on the high street.

Oh yes, I learnt the hard way with the Huawei. It was so annoying that the hardware was essentially a 4G Nexus 4 but the software ruined it. Whenever I buy anything now I always see if root and cyanogenmod is available before I make a purchase.

If the camera is rubbish on the OP3 and they don't sort it out, I didn't pay £600 for the phone and I can just sell it.
