Oppo Reno 5G 256GB $599 + Delivery (Free C&C) @ JB Hi-Fi

1840

Looks like JB Hifi has dropped their price to match Harvey Norman https://www.harveynorman.com.au/oppo-reno-5g-256gb-optus-var...

This doesn't look like it is associated with any provider so perhaps will get updates quicker

Also this is my first post so feedback appreciated :)

I bought the Harvey Norman one so feel free to ask me questions about the phone as well. Overall, it's a really great phone for the price and no complaints so far.

    Compatible with the Telstra 5G network

    I think this is a hint

    •  

      Of what? When they wrote that, Telstra was probably the only live 5G network. And this phone only support N78.

    I'm assuming you could go to OW and get them to price beat?

      Not sure why you got negged, but I upvoted you to compensate.

      Thanks for the link

        cheers.
        I made no comment in the affirmative or negtive.
        Actually, I saw it in the news a week ago that Harvey Norman were 'dumping stock' and posted more for that reason than any political motivation!
        FWIW, I think the price is very good for the features.

      Wow, so people are ok with the US govt having their data but not China? Who really cares at this point? Not like most here would ever visit China anyway so why the big deal? All countries are just as bad if you look deep enough.

        People are stupid. There’s no other way around it, they simply lack intelligence.

        They have been brainwashed to think that the Chinese government wants their data lol. What would they do with it?

        On the other hand, nsa and the big companies have a big party with al their data.

        Makes me shake my head.

        The chinese govt is evil. (not saying Chinese people are). That government has forcefully taken a lot of areas from neighbouring countries. A lot of sea area is claimed and are notorious for many other things. Ultimately it can be allied countries vs china. you want Australia to be on chinese side?

          They definitely are, but lesser than we are and the so called allies. How many innocent people have we killed in the name of bringing peace and crap thousands of kilometres away?
          As if we didn't do that to East Timor, I wish we applied the same view on our own actions. Or is it ok if we do it?

            @Mechz: So America did it, now it is ok for China to do it? Who's next? At least Samoa has rights, freedom and good financial backing. Look at Tibet, China doesn't just claim the areas, it changes their system, currency, beliefs everything. And they are worse off in the long run as those areas are used only for sucking supplies, labour and resources. A Chinese makes $100 a day and a tibetian $12 a day

              Did the Americans change the system and everything for the American Indians? Oh even more, there were massacres:).
              Go and ask the native Americans if they are enjoying the 'freedom' and 'financial backing' there, if that's too difficult, try it with the Aboriginals.

              They had a class system and slavery was common, Dalai Lama was the king/owner of everything. Whatever they are today still is an improvement to what they were.

              Using your argument, at least Tibetans today have the rights not to be slaves and good financial backing.

      Time to start the revolution banning and boycott Chinese products. Our revenge on them seeing they want to stop us investigating Covid-19 independeny. Stop sending milk powder to them, ban it. See what their citizens will do. They are using their powers and force upon other countries to obey and not ask questions. That is BS.

      If all 100+ countries supporting the case, boycott China maybe it will work.

        Boycotting sounds great to the average Joe but it doesn't do anything constructive nor helpful. This simplistic view of how the world economy works is why we have Trump voted in by the very people who will suffer the most from protectionism.

        People forget how our prosperity for the last 20+ years is fundamentally due to our increased national income from our mineral/tourism/education/agricultural exports. Why was there a sudden massive increase in demand for our exports? Because Chinese workers and their middle class has money to buy things that they want to buy. How do they suddenly was able to afford this? By exporting products that they make (efficiently, economy of scale) to developed countries like Australia. Our income has suddenly grown because of exports and our expenses on imported goods have decreased, instead of spending $2000 on a TV, we now have $500 TVs, the other $1500 you can spend on another thing (yes, we are very materialistic). If we start to not buy Chinese goods, they will have less income, and buy less mineral/tourism/education/agriculture products, and this will decrease our income too! Boycotts only hurts ourselves and distort the market forces which we depend on.

            @laser: Once again, "there are other markets" is another example of over simplification of a complex issue. If it were easy, the brilliant and hard working Aussie businessmen and women would have found a new market for their goods. Ignoring a ready market consisting a fifth of the world's population is madness, hence no one did. "Make hay while the sun shines" is what we did in the last 20 yrs and it'll continue for the next 20 until other developing nations (India and Brazil) catch up.

          Yes but China is using as a threat. Do you really want to just forfeit your moral and ethical decisions based on a country using it as threat against your own country?

          Many people lost lives and lost their jobs. It is unfair to use trade as a political move to call off independent investigation.

          China loves political game, typical communist and believe they have the superpowers to enforce and force it down your throats.

          We have been relying too much on China and put too much in one basket. When that country has issues we got no other contingency plans.

          We end up getting threats from China, whom say can kill off our economy by not buying our stuff.

          They even call us "US Dogs". We do know US was silly not looking at Covid-19 seriously to being with and that's their fault, not ours. But call Aussies Dogs of US is not on!

        It's made up by Trump as part of his trade war. Chinese have no care whatsoever about what crap is on your phone.
        US and Australia, very much care about what is on your phone. If you have a Chinese phone, they are less likely to know what is on your phone.

  •  

    For those who can utilize the JB port in deal, this may be a good choice, however…

    Mobile carriers are putting a price on 5G access and I am almost certain that the Harvey Optus plan and the JB / GG Telstra plan does not include 5G access. So we are buying a 5G phone but don't have 5G access. YOu don't need to be a Vulcan to see how the logic is screwed up…

    •  

      try telstra, they offers 5g when you port in your number

    • +1 vote

      If you want 5G access then you can buy a plan that has 5G access. The logic isn't remotely "screwed up".

      Not to mention, not everyone buying this cares about 5G access. When I got my first 4G phone I was still perfectly happy with 3G.

      •  

        I was specificity refer to the port in deals from JB / GG and Harvey as you can use the credit against the phone and only lock to a 12 month contract but does not include 5G access. Having said that those deals are not design for this or any 5G phones….

        •  

          Exactly, so how on Earth is the logic "screwed up"?

          •  

            @callum9999: Spectral efficiency - its cheaper for the carrier to serve you your data allowance on the newer technology than it is on existing infrastructure. If people are happy to pay more for something that costs the carrier less, go for it, free up cheap and cheerful 4G for the rest of us who rather keep the money in our pockets :)

        Just for me to get your logic right. If you don't care about 5G access, wouldn't you just buy oppo reno Z priced at $399 that's pretty much EXACTLY the same with this 5G version, apart from that 5G thing?

        • +2 votes

          different SOC…. this has Snapdragon 855 (Flagship 2019)
          reno z has Mediatek helio p90 (midrange soc)

            @echocae: Right. So for people who don't care about 5G, they care about a few milliseconds on processing speed?

              Actually not just the processor, the display, camera, battery capacity, base storage are all different. These two models are nothing alike apart from the name.

    A very solid phone so far, smooth performance and I love the big screen and speaker quality. Coming from One Plus 6 and S10e.

      I was eyeing S10e for smaller size, but I would appreciate your comments comparing the two…

      • +1 vote

        S10e is a really good phone as well very comfortable to hold in the had with its size, but after using One Plus 6 I wanted to go back on the big screen. S10e has one downfall which is its short battery life 4-5 hours SOT still last a day, whereas I find myself going 1.5-2 days with the Reno. Also, there is no 4k 60FPS selfie camera on the Oppo which the s10e has.

      •  

        This Oppo is about the biggest and heaviest around. But great device for the money, Wife got one from HN

    •  

      Could you please give us a comparison between this phone and your S10e, especially the camera ?

      •  

        Camera on both is superb, although you will find S10e is more saturated in colours if that's your preference in comparison to Reno's true to colour. I do find the Video stabilisation on S10e is slightly smoother than Reno, but the optical zoom x10 is really nice on Oppo. Can't go wrong with either.
