Is there customs charge on buying from this website. What's the advantage of buying from them instead of direct from Oneplus?

Yes, there *should* be customs payable, you might get lucky and it passes thru without getting hit, but its way above the limit.
would only buy this if I was with 02 and looking to have a better camera otherwise would op for a xiaomi mi6. for £310 with discount code DSXM68 and check out in USD and use PayPal then PayPal will convert it to £309.??
Lotta bang for your buck . As is the Mi6 . Both true flagship phones
What would be the realistic upper limit to avoid customs charges ?

Import VAT (17.5%) will be charged by HM Revenue & Customs on bought goods above £18 in value, or £40 for gifts between private individuals and add a fee for handling the goods

I assume you are talking about the Mi6 on tomtop. Why use paypal in dollars if you use a no foreign transaction fee credit card like Halifax Clarity, the current mastercard currency converter here mastercard.us/en-…tml converts it from the $389.89 to £299.04 so £10 cheaper than using paypal conversion and you should have section 75 protection. I recently bought a Mi6 from Banggood using this method cost £287. Had phone just over fortnight now fantastic phone and i use tesco sim so no band 20 its using HSPA+ for internet and pages load very fast so dont know what all the fuss is about band 20. The phone took 15 days from placing the order to in my hand and used free air parcel registered delivery and no customs package was marked as a gift mp4 player value $21.99

The fuss about band 20 is that o2 could swap the mast you use over to 4G leaving you with 2G if you are lucky - neither you nor I know how likely that is! Also you may travel a few miles and be in an area where 4G is strong and 3G isn't. Finally Tesco could change over to another network who rely on B20 in your area - it is the only band that all networks use heavily. Again no one can tell how likely these events are, so I for one make the choice to buy phones with B20.

This is the O2 full network bands

1,800 MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE 2G
900 MHz UMTS/HSDPA/HSPA+ 3G
2,100 MHz UMTS/HSDPA/HSPA+/LTE3G,4G
800 MHzLTE/LTE Advanced4G/4G+

so as you can see the 3G signal is put out on 900 MHz and 2100 MHz and the Mi6 supports both bands for 3G also O2 are rolling out 4G on band 3 2100 MHz so cant see your scenario ever happening .So as i say whats the fuss about band 20

Be as arrogant as you like about your assumptions - I'm not the one possibly going to suffer because of them. I was honest that I can't be sure how likely. Just do others the favour of not posting assumptions as fact as they may not know better. It is a fact that somewhere in the UK a band 20 capable phone will get usable mobile internet where a non-band 20 one won't and this could happen on any network (o2 just most likely). Not to mention the possibility that someone may travel further & find more bands even more useful.

Also you are wrong about the o2 4G bands - they already have some 1800MHz 4G. Not sure about 2100MHz 4G (I hadn't heard of that, but then again I have not looked it up recently).

I stand corrected it is the 1800 they are rolling out not the 2100 but i am not trying to be arrogant just pointing out that band 20 is no problem for me and i am now on my third xiaomi non band 20 phone over 3 years on a tesco sim and i am not the only person on here that says this

Apologies if I mistook your sentiments, but I recall what happened when Chi!ese phones did not offer '3G900' - internet at dial up speed on 2G!

I hope you continue to enjoy decent speeds on 3G.
Better buy from Eglobal with UK tax paid
Do tomtop ask for photo of your credit card. 1st time it's happened to me
A few pounds more expensive here @ £378 but I bought it from here and it was shipped from Manchester so no customs charges, and it was posted within 5 days, no UK dash charger but it came with an adaptor so very happy with the phone at this price and no jelly scrolling or another issues mentioned in previous posts ebay.co.uk/itm…698

Thats how much I paid it went down afterwards I tried posting the deal on here but the mods rejected it as it's not a UK based eBay dealer even though all stock is shipped from Manchester and the 1year warranty is guaranteed and they have a repair centre in Manchester but it's not hot enough deal for the UK
