OnePlus 5T 4G 6GB RAM 64GB ROM International Version - Black Cheapest I could find at the moment, use code " MSPARK " at checkout.
I purchased the OnePlus 5T from GearBest around a month ago, got caught by DHL who rang me up telling me that they we're trying to avoid Import Tax & was being sued. They returned the phone back to GearBest and I went to buy it from O2.

Great phone though, not sure if the same will happen with normal shipping.

You actually said 'plus import fees' but let's forget that part.


meaning the price quoted should include that as not everyone will be able deny the British government its duty. Selective quoting is selective...
How much are customs roughly ?

I agree that “global” can mean anything, and I haven’t received my phone yet, but the item description clearly says it has band 20.
I've got this phone but 4GB version which I paid for about £193 from ebay, I know I could have probably got it for cheaper but I couldn't be arsed with Chinese sellers and waiting weeks for it. Really nice phone, great screen, decent camera. It's got band 20 so all good for Three 4g. Loving the IMUI skin. Any questions, ask away.

You literally couldn't make it up! Really hoping there is a Note 5 and really hope it resembles the alleged leaked renders.


Looks like they are doing both rebadging redmi 5 plus as redmi note 5 and also launching redmi note 5 pro with snapdragon 636 latest rumoured specs here gsmarena.com/xia…php but does look like no band 20 support hopefully they will eventually bring out a global version thats if the latest leaks are correct of course

Might be good for someone who wants to purchase a OnePlus 5T 6gb variant from Gearbest.
paid £500 for mine which is the 128gb version and that was late november directly from oneplus.....worth every penny! absolutly brilliant phone.
bgr.com/201…pp/

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.

twitter.com/fs0…31y

Other chinese phone manufacturers are know for similar activities.
Anyone know how long the warranty is for this if purchased directly from Oneplus? I can't find the answer on their site. Thanks

It IS a phone. I bought it last year. Dual SIM both capable of 4G and there's also a micro SD card slot so you can expand the storage. AND use both SIM's. It's not the greatest device ever but for the money I paid (£75 less about a fiver TCB) it's fab. Great for watching video. For calls you need to use loudspeaker or attach headphones.

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.

Happy with my Maze Alpha, albeit I paid ~£190 for it via Fulfilled By Amazon a few months back for more piece of mind!

More chance of me finding a gold flamedeer than buying off gearbest


Would rather buy off gearbest than a lot of the retailers in this country. All orders delivered, great prices including the phone I'm typing this on. 25+ orders this year, I'm still waiting for Amazon to deliver an order from September that was in stock when ordered but now they're trying to source it.

Edit, some of the items received.

All ordered using the cheapest method of shipping, never been charged customs.

I've got my phone and I'm loving it. It's a a great piece of kit, albeit somewhat heavy. But I actually quite like that, to be honest. It help reminds me that the phone is still in my pocket and hasn't been pinched. The battery life is unbelievable and the phone's camera/general performance is very good. Highly recommended if anyone is considering this.

Bit the bullet at around 4 am and bought one. I have a mi max at the mo and love it bar the really crappy camera. Hoping this might be easier to find a compatible vr headset for too.
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)

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.
