    When I tried to price match the Optus $360 offer at JB Maroochydore last week the guy refused as he said they were paying $400 cost price for them. So now they sell at a dollar less than cost?

    Regardless, I got it matched at JB Hifi Kawana for $360.

    Worth a try for price match as optus are still selling unlocked outright at $360 , although as OP mentioned, their model is single sim compared to dual on offer here.

    For the record, been using it a week now, moved from a smashed S8 and so far I'm very happy with it, still getting used to colour OS in the backend rather than native android. Even at $400 its great bang for buck.

      I got it price matched through the phone at Officeworks so paid $342. Worth trying with a few different staff just in case :)

      •  

        How did you price match to $342? Also, this or the Nova 5T?

        •  

          Price matched with the Optus one for $360. Some Officeworks staff might tell you it's locked, which it definitely isn't but the biggest issue is that Optus one is single SIM while this is due but I didn't have any issues with the customer service representative that I spoke to 👍🏽

          Pocket up the phone safe day and liking it so far.

          Don't know how it compares to the Huawei but ColorOS is probably worse than Huawei's skin. Android 10 supposedly coming to the Reno Z this quarter though and imho it's speedy and looks good.

    •  

      It's easy enough to install Lawnchair (or similar) and then you don't need to worry much about ColorOS

      Note: Great phone for the price, only reason this deal does not get a + is because I got it cheaper at OW via price match with Optus.

        I use Nova Launcher which is fine on the UI, but its the backend settings that are difficult to navigate. Turning on developer mode for example I had to use the search option to find it. It's not the same settings menu as native android.

    •  

      Afterall Samsung is no native android and its UI is worser than these chinese phones

      How is the camera on this compare to the samsung S8? Would you call it an upgrade from S8 to this phone?

    It's insane to think a phone like this retails less than an iphone 6S from half a decade ago…

    I'm kicking myself I missed their sale on the reno 2 z before Xmas.. $449 or similar.

    •  

      Would jump at that price now. Looking for a replacement for my 3 yo Oneplus 3T since I have moved to Boost and the OP doesn't have band 28 or VoLTE. My preference would be a Xioami 9T pro but the Corona virus has caused supply issues.

  •  

    I have a samsung galaxy s5 and looking for upgrading. I only use it for news browsing, calls, ride sharing apps and taking photo's. Would this be a good option or is it overkill? How good is the camera?

      It seems like a great phone, but you could always go for one of the cheaper Samsung A series, they're pretty popular here.

      •  

        I tried the Samsung A5 2017
        The camera is just TERRIBLE!
        And the new USB-C port causes a lot of problems

        •  

          Fair enough, although I was referring to the other ones that regularly get posted here (A20, A30, A50, and A70).

          Should've clarified it in my comment.

          •  

            @mangobango: I would think that Samsung takes the same approach with all phones within the same series.
            i.e. doesnt matter if its an A5 or A20.
            Its still the A series.

            They are significantly cheaper for good reason!

    Currently have a Samsung S6 Edge and finding it sluggish nowadays, don't use it for anything more than FB, googling stuff, calls, WhatsApp, photo's (would like an improvement here)

    Looks like i'll get better photos but does anyone know if this phone will be snappier for general use than the S6?

      this phone would be snappier than an S9 tbh..

      my dad had a S6 edge plus since November 2015 and replaced it with this one in August 2019. He's quite happy with the phone.

      I have this phone, and its very snappy, no lag anywhere for general use

    •  

      The Samsung 6 Edge is still a terrific phone with a great camera.

      Suggest you back everything up and do a full factory reset.

      Then turn OFF automatic updates and just manually update the apps you use and only when you are forced to update.

      That should speed Your Samsung S6 edge right up again

      •  

        Thanks for the suggestions Amayzingone, i'll give your suggestions a go as the phone is still pretty damn good otherwise.

    It appears everywhere is selling it for $400. Not a deal. I believe OzBargain is a website for bargains…

    Officeworks have matched price on both black and purple versions at $399

    Amazon too. Black and purple

    The Good Guys seem to be doing only purple at this price.

    Adelaide centre JB Hi-fi price matched to Optus after speaking to the manager.

    Would this be better than the Pocophone f1? Currently $375 shipped from Toby Deals

    •  

      This has nfc so you can make payments and 2gb more ram and a dual sim tray and a higher mega pixel camera and band 28.

    which is superior this or mi 9t?

    •  

      same question!

    •  

      @jabbairc It's a tough call but I'd probably go the Oppo.
      It's fractionally bigger, has a microSD slot, 128Gb vs 64Gb
      Downsides are no NFC, marginally lesser camera on spec, fewer 4G freqs

      Actually, tbh, I couldn't cope with either phone. No NFC on one & no microSD on the other means I'd look elsewhere.
      It pretty much comes down to which one of those two you can live without.

    Had this phone since November, replaced my Huawei mate 10 pro which I dropped :(. I'm loving it so far. Fast, bright screen, dual sim, decent camera, separate headphone jack.

    I bought this from officeworks Wentworthville for $342. They were happy to price match Optus.

    Here is a summary of what I've noticed after two weeks of usage compared to my old S8 plus /9

    Positives:
    1. Battery life is amazing - I can heavily use it all day without any issue.
    2. Screen is nicer than the samsung indoors but outdoors samsung is better. The keyboard is more accurate, it sucks on my samsung.
    3. the notifications on their simplified android system are so much better. I don't miss anything now compared to samsung but there are less customisation options.
    4. NFC seems to also be more stable and works on all machines. NFC on my samsung doesn't work on all eftpos machines.
    5. Came with a solid case, a screen protector and a headphone with a headphone jack.
    6. Was very easy to set up and had my content migrated across through wireless.
    7. the fingerprint reader at the front is easier compared to Samsung

    Negatives:
    1. Camera is not comparable at all. Both front and back are below average.
    2. Speakers are also cheap quality and don't sound great.

    Summary:
    if you want a phone for taking photos or playing music stay away from this. But for those looking for a nice phone with web functions and a big screen, it is an awesome phone at this price range.

      Oppo's Color OS android overlay sucks big time as well.

      You cant change the default messaging app through which the Chinese govt spies on everyone.

      when you replace other system apps like the dialer it gets very sluggish.

  •  

    I'm looking for a cheapish phone for my wife, we've gone through four phones in the sub-$200 price range in the last five years and I'm sick of it. Can anyone suggest what might be best for up to $300, small and light preferable with preference for a decent camera? Hmm and replaceable battery would be good… We might have stretched to this Oppo phone, but it's A) too big and B) having an average to poor camera is a deal-breaker. I'd prefer to get a previous gen Samsung or Pixel for the camera.

      I have a Nokia 6.1 as a spare phone and love it.
      Low light photography is always sub-par on cheaper phones but the daylight photos come out well.
      The replaceable battery thing isn't really a thing anymore except on purpose-built phones like X-cover 2 Pro.

  •  

    I've been using this phone for circa 4 months now. Great phone, dual sim works a treat and battery life is amazing. It's easy for me to get 2 days charge out of the phone.

    ColorOS is a bit rubbish and a little buggy. Sometimes the notifications just don't appear at random times. The phone probably just needs a wipe and reload.

    I'll buy another Oppo phone in a year or so, they are good value and have decent hardware.

    As mentioned though, the camera was a let down going from the original Pixel to the Oppo - apart from that, everything else is much better.

  •  

    Price beat it from Officeworks with MobileCiti. Final price $378.10

  •  

    Just had a look and the officeworks one says i doesnt accept external mem cards. For those that got from officeworks is this correct? I wont buy a phone unless it has a mem card slot so if the phone crashes i still hae photos.

  •  

    Does anyone have problems with this phone?. I am havin issues with the echo + screeching back when I am chatting to people using both normal mode and phone audio speaker on and off. Please see my previous post:

    I am going to refund my oppo Reno Z phone today bought from office works. As call quality is terrible. I get this echo sound from mobile phone audio when making a phone and chatting with other people. Like you can hear it badly like its echoo + screech noise. This happens with speaker on and off, the phone has no case in it aswell, just plain normal phone call. Not sure if its faulty or something else. But my iphone 6 plus phone I am currently using doesn't have that echo screen noise when chatting on phone speaker mode on.

  •  

    Can anoyone with this phone confirm if you can add a memory card to it? It says dual sim but no to expandable memory?

    •  

      No support for microSD. Either single or dual-SIM depending on whether you get the Optus model or unbranded version, but neither supports microSD

      •  

        Cheersfor that. Thats a deal breaker for me.
        Anyone recommend realme 5 or vivo s1? The same price range.
