500 note for a Oneplus (skeptical)
This is not a deal. Cold.
No deal here move on...
Didn't they cut this to 5%?
But it from O2 instead?

Use discount code CHEAPSKATE
If anyone wants a discount code please PM me. Thanks.
Sam likes this one or does she? You decide
They need to get off their high horse. Don't they offer a student discount?
So what phone would you then recommend? That isn’t like 700£+?
Good discussion from the above posters
http://bgr.com/2018/01/26/oneplus-data-collection-clipboard-app/ In October 2017, a researcher caught OnePlus silently collecting all sorts of data from its users. Now, a new report says that there's still a OnePlus app that can grab data from the phone and send it to servers in China without a user's knowledge or express consent. BGR reports: The French security researcher hiding behind the name Elliot Alderson on Twitter detailed OnePlus's data collection practices back in October, and he has now discovered a strange file in the OnePlus clipboard app. A Badword.txt file contains various keywords, including "Chairman, Vice President, Deputy Director, Associate Professor, Deputy Heads, General, Private Message, shipping, Address, email," and others. The file is then duplicated in a zip file called pattern alongside six other .txt files. All these files are apparently used in "in an obfuscated package which seems to be an #Android library from teddymobile." Now, TeddyMobile is a Chinese company that works with plenty of smartphone makers from China. The company seems to be able to recognize words and numbers in text messages. And OnePlus is apparently sending your phone's IMEI number to a TeddyMobile server, too. It looks like the TeddyMobile package might be able to grab all sorts of data from a phone. Even bank numbers are apparently recognized. OnePlus has yet to issue a statement on the matter. https://twitter.com/fs0c131y Other chinese phone manufacturers are know for similar activities.
Hi bit late to the party but oneplus are offering the 5t sandstone white edition from there website which I want to purchase, my brother goes to uni and sent me his email address but before I can put it, it's asking to log in. So do I put my email address to register them after words I put his email address or should I put his uni email address as a register email. Can someone please help me how I go on to do this. Or should I just tell my brother to purchase it for me lol
It is an awesome phone!! If you want a extra promo code for 20$ of use my Link and click "redeeming" and you get your code you can use when buying the new oneplus 5t! It helpes me out to! I get some points.. Here is the Link: https://oneplus.net/se/invite#EN7K9NS4Z78LWP3
What other regions can I get it from where it's cheaper? No where that get import duty, btw.
At least the dual camera works, the OP secondary camera only work in good light. The OP camera Also has focous, white balance and colour reproduction issue. Mediocre is the word that fits it best.
Most phones are better "value" than the note 8 but they are nowhere near as good.
If this was an NUS-based discount, I probably would have taken the plunge. For me, the OP5 failed to deliver after some huge hype and was overpriced for the spec. The 'student discount' makes it almost reasonable, but given it is already available direct from manufacturer in other regions for less and given I cant get a student beans account, ill let this one slide. Its not significantly cheaper than the S8 can be bought for and given the Samsung warranty and support are far superior, I cant bring myaelf to pick up this handset unless it feels like im actually getting a good deal.
This now makes the OP5 a good deal and is really the maximum price OP should have charged for a device very similar to the previous OP3T. It seems any member of the household can buy this phone as long as they have access to the Student Beans family member's account. I wonder where this leaves potential O2 customers who are students, are O2 going to price match this deal?
So you're all whinging about a brand new high end feature packed well supported smart phone costing £500? Remind me again how much a new iPhone or a new Samsung costs? Wake up you morons, Apple have got you brainwashed and Samsung are trying to do what Apple are doing. There are leaders and there are followers, the Apple and Samsung brigade are sheep, "Must follow, Must follow" The OnePlus brigade are the ones that dared step out of line, and are very happy having done so. As Bruce Lee said "Don't concentrate on the finger, or you'll miss the heavenly beauty above"
If it had passed certification, they'd have advertised it.
Maybe water resistant http://www.techdroider.com/2017/06/is-oneplus-5-waterproof.html
Got my Oneplus5 in France on Monday for €499. It camfrom Hong Kong via Poland! I like it but I've decided to send it back and have ordered a LG G6 for €370 from Eglobalcentral which I think will suit me better as I've been using a LG G3 for the last few years. The charging on the Oneplus 5 is really amazingly fast but it feels slippery in my hand and there are too many control buttons. I'm sure I'd get to like if but I want to compare it to he G6 side by side. Btw I took out insurance for shipping for the G6 even though I thought the sender is liable until you receive the item. Seems like a bit of a scam to me.
Had mine for a week now. Amazing phone.
Did it work then?
Braver person than me... Good luck!
Guess I did read as an idiot in that post. But you're wrong in thinking I was mistaken. I'm aware of what it is and that it is proprietary I and even said so. I also own a 3 and a 3t tyvm. People are converting qc to it currently and claiming 90% of dash speeds, as a result you can buy dash cables and chargers for very cheap. Edit: This thread put me onto them. https://www.reddit.com/r/oneplus/comments/5poqv4/this_dongle_claimed_to_convert_qc20_to_dash/ Figured I'd they'd crack that then they'd be cloning the chargers. Chinese phone supplier sites are full of claimed Dash chargers since Feb. So figured for £2.65 it's worth a go, I'll let you know if it worked.
Not dash charge as it is proprietary only works with the 3 and 3t not the same as qualcomm fast charge or another other...
This is proprietary nothing else works with it apart from 3 and 3t the
One Plus deliberately juke the phones to cheat in benchmarks. COLD.
So if you go to O2 you buy the phone on pay as you go, and then use can use the other sim, in my case monthly with iD with 1gb? On Refresh don't you buy the phone but then afto take the airtime?
I was really tempted when this came out, but did not go for it in the end as really wanted at least a 2K screen minimum due to I think it helps slightly on a screen of that size (especially when using it with VR) and also I've heard the camera is not the best (I use mine to take a lot of photos of the kids and want fairly decent ones (I know they are never going to be as good as a propper camera, but it's handy on the phone)). Im going to see what the OnePlus 5 has to offer in a couple of months.
great phone, best price available. the only reason I didn't buy it when I was looking for one end of last year is because it was out of stock
Yes, I picked up the none T version for only £336 from O2. What a bargain.
link please ?
Talking about any One Plus phone, you have to speak from experience. The 3T 128gb is the best Android phone as of today. I have used the original One Plus One ever since it was released; and believe me, it is still working fine. Not only that; it was 5.0 when I got it, but it has updated to 6.01 as of today. In other words, it is as good as any of the latest phone. One Plus was about the first mobile phone with 64gb and that is the one I got. I am now going in for the 3T which still remains the best among its peers. If you haven't checked it out, please do so now and you will find that apart from 64gb and 128gb, it comes with 16mpx for both front and back camera. This is first of its kind. Don't be misled. One Plus has been rightly rated as one of the five best smartphones on the market.
Finally bit the bullet and have purchased this today.....went for 128GB, partner has got a S7 and will be interesting to compare
bought mine from oneplus at this price. no regrets, was a Samsung s7 edge and other android phone user. always love the oneplus phones and the 3t holds that up well. no slowdowns and looks the part. The 3t is by far one of the best looking and spec phones for its price. screen is beautiful. battery life has been really good too. fast and smooth. good to look at.
Whoever are hitting cold on this obviously have never used one, I have had mine for 3 months and they are brilliant phones and easily one of the best I have owned (and believe me, I have owned some of the best) with virtually the spec of the iPhone 7 or Galaxy S7, but half the price of them both. What's cold about that? And if any of you are thinking "I voted it cold because it's a Chinese phone', check to see where your iPhone or Samsung is made.
For those who may want the phone before Xmas. Now out on pay as you go @ o2 online.
you bit. see south park season 20 for lessons on the art of trolling.
Nice one f2k8, I'm thinking of ordering one. I've emailed oneplus to ask if android auto works with no issues.
My One Plus 3T 128GB came through today finally! :D Been on it all day, absolutely love it, it's snappy as hell, I'm upgrading from a trusty LG G3 so I'm bound to notice a difference but it's actually scary how fast it is, the fingerprint sensor is ridiculous, it unlocks so quick, gone are the days of entering a password! haha I'm on Three and I have unlimited 4G data, have taken it with me while driving and I haven't dropped 4G once, I've even been using my google maps and usually I lose gps signal around certain parts of my city with my LG G3 but not at all with the OP3T, as well as that, my speedtest.net app reaches speeds I have never seen before. Well chuffed with it, the build quality is very impressive, bought a Karbon case along with it and the case is minimalist enough for my liking, and looks/feels gorgeous! Updated it as soon as I turned it on to the Nougat beta and I'm enjoying the new features quite a bit, battery life has also been pretty amazing, and the speaker/earphone sound is far better than most modern day phones that I've tried out prior to buying this. I'm a big fan of stock Android, and this is very stock, had doubts about OxygenOS but there's actually a lot of handy things in there and it's not as bloated as my LG G3 was at stock and a few other phones on the current market. Genuinely glad I went for this phone, for the price it's brilliant, any questions regarding the phone then just ask :)
Forget the usd v GBP cost, look at the euro v GBP cost where no other sales tax comes into it, the UK is getting screwed over by about 20 quid more! There's NO excuse for that at all! *EDIT* Just checked the exchange rate and it's £25 MORE in the UK than the rest of Europe!
Have you seen any of Edward Snowden's revelations? Beware of spyware installed on American phones, or British ones if we made any. All the governments are at it.
http://www.umidigi.com/page-umi_pluse_specification.html a little competition for the OP3T...I think this will be a lot cheaper too
I'd recommend you buy the OP3 from O2 NOW if you're interested in it. Do it before OP3 stock totally dries up. Buy the handset outright with a plan and then cancel the plan. £399 vs £336 is totally not worth it for what amounts to a slightly better processor and battery (unless you want 16mp selfies...).
Beware of trolls.
Excellent case. Arrived Tuesday from Poland.
Sorry too late now
Lucky lad, can I be your son too?
Wish come true. Son asked for OnePlus 3 as a first phone I got him IPhone 6s and bought this cover so both happy. Thx ocz for this link.
Ordered. Free upgrade to priority shipping too
You can, in O2.
Yeah, my oneplus one has lasted longer than any phone I've ever had, still not planning on upgrading anytime soon
Did the homework. Not the one that goes on fire ? ?. :(. Ordered, on way, due next week. Great phone, bargain for £329.00. delivered. Thank you for posting "angusjenkins". Ps:- Never mind about the HEAT leave that to Samsung. :D. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j18hY2gyLV4
http://appleplugs.com job done :)
Good points. Easily looked over when the price is low. If these where as good as they make out, you could buy one on the high street.
Any discount codes around?
Upgraded from nexus 5, I'm pretty impressed likewise. Still running oxygen OS 3.2.4
Going to probably buy a second OP3 for my OH once prices start to drop in a few months - that's how impressed I am with mine after a few months. How is everyone else doing with their OP3? Did anyone try the 3.5 uodate or even the HydrogenOS?
My missus was sortof holding out for the iPhone 7, or possibly the next Nexus, but she likes my OP3 so much she's caved ! Just ordered the new gold colour (anyone else got one?), plus a 5 pack for £12.99 - OnePlus 3 Orzly® Multi-Pack of 5 Colour Protective Flexicases - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01HDH7TAQ/ OP3 in grey and gold versions
I bought the OP3 to replace my launch day N5. I wanted a phone that should last me a few years, and wanted a phone that had potential to be supported by xda & their devs. It took me a while to adjust to the larger screen size, but everything else has been a significant improvement. The screen is better. The camera is better. The battery life is better. The speed is better. Bootlocker easily unlocked. The price is better (N5 cost me £350 + del). For what I want in a phone, the OP3 may as well be a Nexus in everything but name. I was going to hold out for the 2016 Nexus, but it is looking like it'll be more or less the same thing as the OP3, but with a resolution I don't want, and likely to be a higher price. The only reason to buy a Nexus over the OP3 is the software updates. OP3 is still a risk, unless you don't mind relying on devs (and if you have a Nexus, then you probably don't mind relying on the devs).
I had one for a long time and it's a great phone, not sure why voted cold, definitely hot for me
64gb wasn't out of stock at time of posting!
From oneplus support via Twitter re. MM for oneplus X (3/6/16) "We're working on it and will provide more information in the coming days. Please stay tuned! Thank you."
Marshmallow for OnePlus X and soon for OnePlus 2 also. https://www.inoreader.com/article/3a9c6e7c41455521-cyanogenmod-13-nightlies-available-for-the-oneplus-2-moto-x-pure-yu-yureka-oppo-r5-and-r5s-and-the-xperia-tablet-z
64gb out of stock, and it has no SD card support.
Get a xiaomi
or a bank card with NFC
Yeah, I know but phones have got to critical mass, my needs are pretty primitive as I don't play hard end games I certainly won't pay more than 100 for a phone now. Once you've had cyanogen you won't go back. Maybe I can find someone to put mod on for me. After buying the oneplus one it was way overpowered for what I need. I've rationalised what I want and pay for a phone so have others I believe. I picked up a battered m4 aqua for 21 on ebayand it's perfect as a walking phone so might even go that route now
There is a cm13 for the redmi note 3 pro iirc
that's not what i wanna hear lol. good to know though.
Did anyone actually buy a OnePlus 3?
Pricing in India converts to approx.£294, but obviously we will pay more! Oneplus 2 price is 3% more in UK than India, but Oneplus X is 18% more (all very approximate!) So I would guess at somewhere between £299 and £349, probably the higher end though as we are bound to get ripped off. At that price I’ll probably leave it for the time being and at least wait for reviews before deciding

That's is the weirdest thing ever....... any who.... of to ummmn...... make a drink.... yes, make a drink.... *bedroom door slams"
word of warning- their CS is terrible. bought this phone but refused delivery (as instructed) as I saw the huawei p9 offer. DHL returned the phone to their London warehouse a week ago and they've not spoken to me since. opened a PayPal dispute and voila, a reply from them saying they'll not resolve the issue internally anymore as I've opened the claim. don't expect any proper CS if anything goes wrong
It's true the dirty flash process results in NO data loss.
Then explain how you don't lose data. The dirty flashing is really dirty.
I have this phone since last year. I paid £210 used but like new for it from eBay. It had loads of problems such as an unresponsive fingerprint scanner, lots of freezing, camera issues and crap battery life. Ever since they released the Marshmallow beta update it has transformed into a a totally different beast. No more freezing and stuttering, the fingerprint scanner works perfectly. The battery life is still ropey though, I get around 3-4 hrs sot. I'm using a Galaxy S7 now but still have the OP2. Great phone for the price. Heat added.
waiting for the mi5 at a similar price. much higher specs at roughly the same price. supports UK 4G bands except O2. I use EE so will be fine
is this the latest OnePlus phone?
it s so heavy to make the difference between ceramic and gorilla version
Oh yeah. For the same price you can get a Sony Z2 with the same specs but amazing battery life and camera.
My girlfriend has a oneplus x. The phone is solid. I would say that the battery and the camera are the downpoints. She is not an intensive user and she's always at 10 or 20% bat at night. But solid build and good looking phone. Screen is really nice too. Camera is I would say the most negative point of this phone.
I bought one plus x about two months ago. Does everything and has caused no problems at all. I do everything from browsing, shopping, reading and videos and it has a good camera.
They are not made from real wood! I have the Rosewood cover and although good quality, it's not real wood
Thanks for posting, just ordered kevlar cover
Bang on. Made from real wood and even a kevlar case. Thanks OP. Off to get a Bamboo and Rosewood. HEAT. Never mind the kiddies voting cold.
I think you'll find that the phone is great. Compare it to everything in its price range and you'll see that this is the clear winner. It just went under the radar because it's missing NFC and quick charge. It's built like a tank and still has some great features like fp scanner(often missing in its close competitors) and usb type-C(missing from the s7). Yes the invite system is annoying but it's gone and rumoured to be gone forever(op3), and the invite system is gone....look at the deals title. #OP3 HYPE
Neither of those, both over priced, especially Apple imo
What is a great phone then, Samsung or apple ?
The invite system was viral marketing allowing them to grow the company, which has clearly worked allowing them to increase production and lower the price. The price is also lowered as the parts are old with the new snapdragon 820 coming out so its cheaper to make.
I don't know vs the G4 having never owned one. But the Oneplus two is very well put together in my opinion. It's very solid feeling with the metal chassis, no creaks, no odd alignment problems when parts come together. I came from a Z3 Compact and that was like a toy in comparison.
