No its not an Audi 200 5T [I wish for £373!] but the new OnePlus 5T > Cheap!

OnePlus 5T 4G Phablet Android 7.1 6.01 inch Snapdragon 835 Octa Core 2.45GHz 6GB RAM 64GB ROM 16.0MP + 20.0MP Dual Rear Cameras Full Optic AMOLED Screen Fingerprint Scanner

After some successful, quick deliveries and very smooth transactions with Gearbest, had been waiting on a 5T for an after Christmas price drop, but it seems to have come early!

Varies by about £2, no idea why, but still lowest price so far!

Gearbest have a security leak, make sure your card details aren't connected.

Since its the chinese version and not the uk one you wont be covered with warranty, am i right? Plus gearbest give 1 year warranty, but its rubbish, pay £80 more and buy directly from oneplus and get 2 years solid warranty

Unlikely, unless it's a fast shipping option.
I like the star wars edition, don't know what your on about
If it's any help to anyone, I paid off my S8+ contract today and bought the OnePlus 5t. Gobsmacked at how awesome it is. Feels much better than the Samsung in my opinion. Well worth the money.
If you get caught for VAT and duty, it will cost more than the retail in the UK £449. It's like comparing prices to the US but not adding sales tax. Some things are a bargain from Gearbest, but this isn't one of them.
The 5t is £405 direct, w/ student discount, v tempting.

IF you choose the realtime DHL service, everything that lands here over $21 via it, will get tagged...

Personally have never had an issue, with just the normal priority tracked mail service, which has taken anything from 5 to 23 days from gearbest, but has always arrived smoothly and without any extra costs, after gimping around on here for a few days, there seems to be a lot of #members# that continually post the same issue over and over about shipping#duty which might happen now and then on something shipped from 10,000 miles away.. but surly it is not happening to them everytime they order!!!

How have you found the everyday [will mostly be doing youtube streaming] battery use of the 5T to the S8+ ?

...if your a student! If you are very good price so grab one!
Good price but heard some horror stories about Gearbest warranty issues. If you go for it I would suggest using a credit card for the additional protection.

Hi. I'm intrigued how the OP 5t is better than the Samsung. Please tell
As with every gearbest/eglobal/banggood offer, always use a credit card if you can! If the company fails you, your credit card company can back you up!!

Heat from me! I'll be purchasing one once the Christmas fiasco is over!

See the Oneplus website, there's a page about their student discount. I'm staff, but you just need a uni email address. £405 is great price, though I'm torn between this and a 24-month Pixel 2 deal on mobiles.co.uk, which works out about the same once I factor in the sim value.

I have both and i know for a fact, the op 5t is faster, smoother, and better at handling games, longer battery life, faster battery charging. Unfortunately it cant compete in camera quality, screen quality and extra features

The everyday battery life is way longer than the s8+ by atleast a few hours, I've notices the samsung drains faster when playing games, also the op 5t charves wayy faster, hoenstly never seen anything charge this fast. Also had the op 5, don't know why but i feel the op 5 had even longer battery, maybe I'm just imagining things

I also think oneplus 5t and 5 is underrated, it feels wayy smoother and faster than the s8 and battery life is wayy better, i just wish it had a better camera
The face recognition on the 5T is so much faster than iPhone X

Correct! Deffo worth paying the extra
Doe this now plays Netflix , Amazon in HD? Deal breaker for me unfortunate, had to cancel order at the last minute due to this, anyone can confirm this has been fixed?
In an effort to get gearbest to sort issues some info for everyone.
I have bought lots of stuff from them and generally good, but when it goes wrong its a mountain to climb.

However recent android box went wrong. First remote then box. Gearbest customer service woes started.
Offered a couple of quid refund and no joy, or even understanding of English through gearbest ticket system, next to useless.
Escalated to paypal, eventually full offer of refund.
Eventually through paypal offered a UK return address for info (gearbest ticket system contradicted what they were saying through paypal)

Weiwen Luo
Address:
Woodgate Business Park,
Clapgate Lane,
Bartley Green

Birmingham
United Kingdom
Phone: 07780841791

They then repeatedly refused delivery from courier. One could interpret this as a device to 'pretend' to offer refund then refuse to accept the returned goods. No goods return=no refund to pay.
Only when I refused final paltry offer from through paypal, (after they had previously offered full refund) did the return that mysteriously had been repeatedly rejected, was now accepted, on the day Paypal ruled in my favour for full return of money.
coincidence?
doubtful.

So if everyone uses paypal for payment and escalation, keeps full records, they will compel gearbest to fully refund. If everyone does this then maybe gearbest will sort it properly.
Hope this helps.

No such thing as a solid warranty as far as OnePlus Is concerned, their customer service record is shocking.
If you want a solid warranty use the student discount and get it from O2.

It is nowhere near as secure, it us just a modified version of trusted face and only works well in good light.

It's a second tier device with no thermal cooling ,running at max frequencies most of the time. Let's see how long it can do that for.

When the OP6 arrives what performance you artificially have will start to disappear as they have with the OP3 and OP3T.

There are also several device that charge faster or put through more charge over the same amount of time, that's why you see the focus on the a days charge in 30 mins after that it is slow very slow.
The Mate 10 pro charges faster, it puts through 2000 mah in 30 min compared to 1700 on the OP5/T.
That's over 20% faster.

Ive had oenplus since the oneplus 2 and i dont know whether your talking from personal experience or from reviews, but every time my phone got slow/bad battery/bad charging port, they arranged collection, repaired it and sent it back within 2 weeks, just as good as my samsungs warranty experience. I also bought it with student discount direct from oneplus, 2 Years waeranty is truly amazing, im just glad theyre following in samsungs footsteps

I dont know anything about Huawei since i never had any phones other than samsung, apple, oneplus, htc and LG, every flagship, i got oneplus to prove to people it wasnt really a flagship killer, which i still believed it wasnt until the 3t came out with the snapdragon 821. I then tested more of the phones and realised for some weird reason (maybe great optimisation) the op 3t performance did not degrade after 6 months unlike every samsung I've had, the s8 has been holding oit well, we will have tait a few months to notice

Thats the case with every manufacturer, performance increases by over 20% for every flagship phone they bring out, in regards to charging i didnt know there were faster charging phones than dash charge since most reviews i read and said that. Anyways for now my ideal phone is the op 5, i prefer it over my 5t, if i could get any phone i would choose the usa version of samsung s8(since it has snapdragon), i hate exynos since i play lots of emulated wii games on my phone.

Havnt even set it up yet, and dont plan to, finger print is enough security for me, i agree though, apple security must be much better
This does seem the best bang for the buck but the more you research the more confusing it gets!
I'm very tempted with this have to say
