    anyone have 90Hz display phone, can you really feel the difference for everyday use? other than gaming. my assumption it will just waste more battery , or by default it switched to 60hz to save power. I want to buy Note 10+ but it's 60Hz display make me hard to decide, should i buy 90Hz phone

    • +14 votes

      You'll certainly notice the 90hz refresh rate when scrolling but outside of that you won't notice it much. I had a OP 7 Pro for sometime and noticed it.

      The Note 10+ also has a far better quality display than any OnePlus phone. People tend to confuse display quality with refresh rate and think that high refresh rate = higher quality display but that's often not the case.

      • +5 votes

        i have oneplus 7 pro and bought my mum the note 10+, oneplus definitely feels much faster in terms of everyday use. whether that's due to exynos or crappy samsung os or the 90hz display. i cant really tell.

      • +1 vote

        I think your answer is a little misleading and off the mark, Note 10+ display far better than ANY Oneplus Phone? I have a Oneplus 7 Pro, QHD+ and 90hz with HDR10 and no hole in the top of the display. Depending where you sit on curved edges too this amounts to a personal choice, nowhere near a clear cut "far better quality display than any OnePlus phone", the 7 Pro is essentially yet to be matched design wise and goes tow to toe with a note 10+ for quality.

        •  

          Agree with the design, the full screen display with no punch hole looks great on the OP 7. But I've had both devices and speak from experience.

          If you compare both displays side by side, the Note 10+ has deeper blacks, higher contrast, punchier colours and an overall better-looking display.

          Fact is both displays are made by Samsung and they reserve the best displays for their own devices.

          Also I'm not a Samsung fanboy and would definitely pick OxygenOS over oneUI!

          •  

            @whirlforce: I've not owned both but I have had a Note 10+ side by side with a my 7 Pro for a little play, and I would agree is has an edge in a few ways, it pops that little bit more, but I'd not nearly call it far better. The difference 90hz makes is, at least in my view, far more of a meaningful difference. It would appear that the industry agrees with the apparent progression to 90hz and beyond. Again I think it all boils down to a personal choice/preference, and the Note 10+ is a very different device top to bottom to a 7 Pro, with a cost to match.

      •  

        Check on DisplayMate, one of the professional screen review organisations, the s10+ and the Op8 both achieve just about the best rating a screen can have, yet you are saying one screen is better than the other.

        Great, your eye must be more accurate than their lab-grade machine.

        •  

          DisplayMate are no normal reviewers, they are a consulting company who get officially paid to do OEM-sponsored display reviews. Much like dxomark is for cameras. They get cherry picked units sent out to them which won't have any QC issues a retail unit would have.

          For proper real life display reviews check Anandtech, XDA and Phonearena.

      you can tell the difference, but it's more of a marketing fad than a really useful upgrade over 60Hz.More important is the QHD over FHD

    • +5 votes

      If you do as much of scrolling on your phone as an ozbargainer, you'd definitely notice it and enjoy the smoothness. I currently have Note 10+ which has 60 hz so my friend's pixel 4 felt really snappy when I used it. I'm personally waiting for a high end phone with high refresh rate and QHD AMOLED display without curved edges that does not require importing.

    •  

      Definitely noticeable on the oneplus 7t but nothing gamebreaking. I have mine turned off since I prefer to have extra battery but if you prefer to have smoother scrolling and transitions, then it might be worth considering.

    •  

      I think it largely depends. As a tech geek myself I was skeptical but I only had to use my friend's OP7Pro for a few minutes before I was spoiled and knew my next phone has the have a high refresh rate.

    •  

      I have 90hz on my pixel, swapping between it and my work iPhone 7 I really notice the difference when scrolling emails etc. The difference is night and day, makes every animation a lot smoother imo.

    •  

      It's just a nice to have feature, makes scrolling smoother, it doesn't affect how or what you do with the phone. If you would prefer battery life then a big battery phone with 60hz 1080p oled is the best option.

    •  

      You're more likely to notice 90hz from daily use than gaming. Games needs to be optimised for 90hz to run it in 90.

    i assume this is shipped from China or HK. how is the shipping like?

    why OP7T Pro is more expensive than OP8????

    • +3 votes

      Because the OP 8 is not the 'Pro' version.

    •  

      The answer is because it's the T and Pro version, but this comment got me thinking. Why would anyone buy the 7T Pro over this? The main advantages I can see are the popup camera as well as the super slo-mo 960fps thing. But then this is half a year newer, with a better chip… I'm assuming 7T pro has more storage and RAM so maybe that's it.

    •  

      Because OP8 is basic model. It doesn't have any ammunition for comparison to 7T Pro etc

  •  

    Waiting for Pro deal

  •  

    Does VoLTE work on these yet with Telstra? Once they shut down the 3G network it'll be one expensive brick.

    Your ad says global EU version but the spec sheet indicates it is the Chinese version.

    Global version has band 28 support for 4G but CN version does not.

    Please clarify.

    Our poor AU$ means I'm not treating myself to an upgrade from my OP7.

    I just wish oneplus would bring there sh** to Australia and stop treating us like a third would country. Ive had on OP5T for just on 3 years now, it hasnt missed a beat to this day, im still happy with the product.

    What kills me is the risk of breaking a phone that is not really support by a AU warranty.

    •  

      I've just ordered a new battery for my OP5T, killer phone!

      Bought the OP5 on soft launch 2.5 years ago. Wish they would start selling here too.

      • +1 vote

        Same here. Very happy with that deal but I guess they weren't since they didn't do anything else.

        Sucks because I can't get a decent OnePlus 5 case. At least Amazon has working dash charge cables even if they die in ~5 months.

    •  

      What's weird is that at one point they did start selling here but then pulled out of our market fairly quickly. Wonder if they were annoyed they had to pay GST?

    •  

      Even Sony mobile pulled out of Australia a couple years ago. Tough market.

      •  

        Difference is that Sony was selling in retail stores whereas OnePlus was a fully online store so they didn't need as much presence here.

      •  

        They got themselves to blame, poor quality bad software.

        They better stick to their playstations, headsets, and lens

    •  

      Well… vote with your wallet. If everyone said we won't buy anything as long as you treat us like a third world country, they would change the tune pretty quick. It's not like this is the only company selling phones in Australia and you have no choice. The fact they still sell it like to a third world country means people are still happy to be treated like that. Third world citizens.

      Just like with many other things.

      •  

        yup i agree. We shall all stop buying all together. With Oneplus high prices and lack of stores here and ignore Australia might as well not give any business to them.

        We gave in before because of cheaper alternative but now when it comes to warranty after sales, you get nothing with an import close to 1k with GST on basic model.

        I say don't bother, have your money elsewhere.

    Anyone know how much the Oppo Find X2 Pro will be in Australia? With Samsung phones being rubbish this year and Huawei being useless the main option will be the Oppo. Xiaomi have just released the Mi 10 Pro here but for $1999! WTF!? So we're left with the Oppo.

  •  

    can OP please clarify if this is global or cn version? does this support band 28?

    • -2 votes

      Do we really need band28? If the phone js unusable without it?

      •  

        Not sure why you got negged but band 28 is what Aus mostly runs on.

        •  

          People are asses. The question has been asked heaps too. The phone will run fine without out it but there are some regional areas where you will struggle without it.

            @Caped Baldy: Going from a device that supports it to one that doesn't, city and suburban reception is also a lot worse. I used to get full signal in the house and now get 0-1 bars.

            •  

              @BenR31415: Fair enough. From my experience, I find there is a bigger difference with providers. Telstra has been awful around Thredbo/Perisher but great around Tassie.

  •  

    Note Global version doesn't include Band 28 which should make it an instant dealbreaker for most people. Lots of chatter on Whirlpool about it.

    Xiaomi Mi 10 Global is $969 shipped (to postcode 3000) on buybuybox and a better bet I think.

    •  

      Which version has B28? I thought Global did? I got OnePlus 6 Global and its working fine on B28…

    • +6 votes

      Global Version / European Version includes Band 28
      Global ROM doesn't include Band 28

      Don't get confused by the two.

      Having said that, they've called this the "Global Version" but the specs are for the Chinese / Global ROM.

      • +3 votes

        Sorry yes this, CN version with Global ROM (which is what all the chinese sellers are selling).

        You need the EU model for band 28 (and only way to get that model is through official OnePlus store AFAIK)

        •  

          So this post is very misleading. They should specify Chinese version with Global ROM as its a completely different device! If that's the case, they should also remove EU from the listing as well (it says 128GB/EU).

          •  

            @knight321: yes by EU afaik all they mean is it includes a europe power adaptor in the box.

            almost got caught out by this when looking for a Mi 10 yesterday (Fasttech only has the CN model, but buybuybox has the global model).

            •  

              @xyron: I have seen the global version being listed elsewhere such as dicksmith

              Scrolling through its specs - it says it has B28.

                @knight321: For $1099 it had better wipe your bum for you too, honestly. But yes I would also trust Kogan/DS to sell the true global version.

                •  

                  @xyron: Haha yeah the Global version tends to be priced way higher than the Chinese version. But I think its worth it if you're considering using it in Australia.

                  Quiet sad OnePlus don't sell the phones here and only have Oppo's around :( I really like their software and frequent updates.

    Upvote because want. But cannot spend while already have OP6. Hard lyf.

      Not buying this neither. Got 6T still working fine. Price wise it's on the high side.

      Not keen to jump on unless it's pro but pro is too expensive and has punched hole. Should have kept the 7 pro design

      No longer a oneplus fan here. Will keep my 6t til next phone

    Should I go with OPPO Reno 5g deal or OnePlus 8 ? Any advise? Thanks

    • +1 vote

      Probably Reno 5g if you care about having Band 28 which doesn't come with the version of the Oneplus 8 in this post. If you don't the Oneplus 8 would be very solid and they are known for having software support longer than most other android offerings.

      • +1 vote

        I got the Reno too. Also get aussie warranty. Only downsides are colorOS, no 90hz and lack of waterproofing.

  •  

    Reviewers say Oneplus 8 is a let down with the 7T outperforming it in photography, I'd stretch to the 8 Pro or just get a 7T. Or wait for Sony's sexy Xperia 1 ii.

    •  

      Xperia 1 ii is estimated to be 1500-2000AUD ….

      •  

        Will be around $1500AUD, (retails for $1300CAD), same price as Oneplus 8 Pro, Samsung S20+, etc. But with no notch, a headphone jack, front facing stereo speakers, unique camera setup, 4k bt2020 color space display and it's made in Japan. It's a great package. Only downside is Sony are slow with android updates.

        •  

          8 pro is already down to ~1200AUD from HK sellers it seems. not sure why oneplus thought punch hole-less was worth giving up for a waterproof rating, still prefer the popup or oppo's wedge.

  • +3 votes

    I remember when OnePlus was a cheaper alternative to premium phones, selling for $500 or so…. man …

    •  

      Yeah i remember buying my Oneplus One for under $400 AUD from a 20% off Ebay sale after it was released and loved it, then i got my Oneplus 5 for $500 something almost 3 years ago, now their phones are all pushing that 1k+ bracket which makes them just another run of the mill phone company and less bang for buck.

      •  

        Check this video from Tech Altar on how enthusiast brands are doomed to betray their fans for an understanding of why this is happening. The video is a couple of years old but is no less relevant today.

    •  

      Not any more since Oneplus 7 Pro.

      They market themselves as premium like Huawei.

      The direction is not good one less choice.

      I hope this covid 19 will make all these phone manufacturers wake up and know that people want more choices for mid range not everyone wants top end 1.5k phones

      This Oneplus 8 is not that great for its price.

  •  

    (imperial measurements ah)

    7inch phablets are dying out, xioami were the leaders then abandoned ship, then Asus but wauwai was then the leader with the mate 20x, huge 7inch phone, but also lost customers from app issue.

    •  

      I have Mate 20 X, love it. The 18:9 screen makes it fit normal video better than all the 19-20:9 screens nowdays.

      Only current big screen phones are Xaomi blackshark 3 pro, 7.1" screen. Samsung ultra is pretty big also at 6.9".

  • +3 votes

    Other people have mentioned it but Kogan is selling the actual global model with band 28 support and AU warranty for $1099. Just in case that's worth $180 to you.

    •  

      Hmm, if we have to pay GST buying from FastTech, it comes to a final price of $1009.25, only ~$90 saving but without AU warranty. Not that attractive then.

  •  

    What about the 10% GST? Does your price (A$917.50) include that?
