$10 cheaper than it was when I posted it around 10 days ago (change to GBP to get this price).
Original email link here: uidesign.gbtcdn.com/GB/…k5

New price: uidesign.gbtcdn.com/GB/…3MC

Mercifully, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack (if that matters to you) OnePlus actually explain why, here

£499 from their official website oneplus.net/uk/…-5t

The negative stuff out the way: No MicroSD slot, though, and no water resistance, on-screen recent apps/home/back buttons, rather than capacitive buttons - for the first time. No wireless charging.

Yes, I rather lazily pasted the same blurb as my first post hotukdeals.com/dea…500 but here's a new review/comparison with the OnePlus 5 and Google Pixel 2 XL:
Avoid GearBest the site was hacked and they've been hiding it.

Avoid GearBest the site was hacked and they've been hiding it.



I can't comment on Gearbest themselves, as I know as much as anyone else - but there's a thread about it here hotukdeals.com/dis…189

"Usual protocol applies. Change any passwords etc as a matter of urgency, and look out for any fraudulent transactions."

But in saying that, all sorts of websites get hacked, though perhaps I'm being naive.

Good price for the 8GB Ram version
So it looks like all that marketing hype with this company has led them to believe they can move up to those willing to pay such a premium price for a phone with features they will never need / use. I'm sure there will be some lemmings in the queue, but those really dedicated to saving money will look at what features they really need and choose a phone priced accordingly.

Bought one from OnePlus for £404 after using a student discount. Received it yesterday. Amazing phone and so fast at everything it does but the camera is truly awful. As is the speaker.
The camera should only be a software issue so I'm hoping they can sort it. My Nexus 6 takes far superior photos so this s disappointing. But it's a great phone though!
I never received goods from gearbest less than 2 month after placing the order, support is useless... Never order from them again. Why should wait 2-4 months for delivery???
+1 to the price but - 100 to gearbest - avoid!
Why bother with these guys, if the phone was around £100 I'd take a risk but for the price go direct via one plus. I paid £449.10 with a friends student ID, not here yet but some of the nuances are putting me off like the dodgy speaker

You started worry about rating reputation??? Surprise!

Placed order on 5th of September - received on 7th of November, tracking been shown as arrived after 1 week at destination but after several conversation with support got it delivered after PayPal has been involved. Phew. - 2 month.

Placed 2 orders on 10th of November (in stoke - delivery between 1 - 7 December), shown as dispatched on 25th of November. - 2 WEEKS LATER - WHY???
Tracking disappear after 3 days - blank. Beginning of december i sent message asking where is my goods, reply was - that my question has been transferred to logistics department and they will reply back to me within 10 working days!!! WHAT, 10 WORKING DAYS??? To receive reply?
Middle of December i did sent request where is my goods again, reply was:
Dear Customer,
Thank you for your recent order with us.
The Holiday season is coming and we wish you receive your items on time.
However, kindly note that this is peak season for the shipping companies and local post offices that may face a backlog with deliveries. There has also been adverse weather affecting flight times and the transport of packages to some destinations. We therefore warmly remind you to expect some delays during this time.
Santa Claus has also informed us that he too is overwhelmed this time of year and might be delivering some presents a little late.
We thank you very much for your understanding and support. Please feel free to contact us directly via our Support Center if you have any queries.
Merry Christmas and Happy holidays.

GREAT SERVICE, YES??? My neighbour in past ordered several times - same problems - been waiting up to 4 month - RIDICULOUS!!!

I had 8 outstanding orders to come on Monday but after Thursday 3 arrived and another today so I'm waiting for four orders to come.

One was a 75p USB cable which isn't worth worrying about. But I've got three others I'm waiting for all of which were insured so it's more out of time than money that is concerning for those.

From my limited amount of orders with Gearbest - generally, they are pretty slow. One was a knockoff BOSS Belt which took about a month to ship (can't give it as a Xmas present! btw, the recipient knows it's not real!) - the Axon 7 thread has a few complaining about how slow it took to dispatch - six weeks in my case.

Ordered here and there from Banggood and they seem to be much quicker with dispatch times - one time was a pre-order and took a while, but at least I knew to expect that with a pre-order.

Carphonewarehouse will give £100 for a Nexus 6 as long as there is no significant damage and it turns on. The problem is mine looks like it's brand new. It's had a screen protector and full bumper case on it since the day I got it. Absolutely immaculate. It's almost too good to hand over to Carphonewarehouse.
That said, this OnePlus 5T is so fast and smooth. And a better size too. It's definitely an upgrade. Just a shame about the camera. Hopefully a software update will fix it soon.
