OnePlus 6T 8GB/128GB Mirror Black (Global Model) $479 + Shipping (Import) @ Dick Smith by Kogan

900

Sweet price for an excellent phone. The listing says "down from $949", but I'd take that with a pinch of salt. I own one myself, and was watching its price to buy for the missus.
Shipping to Sydney and around comes out to $20.99.

    hmm almost perfect but no wireless charging and external sd card

    • +5 votes

      And no official support for VoLTE and Wifi Calling.

      •  

        Both those "features" are heavily over-rated.

        •  

          Hard disagree here. My parents have terrible in home coverage and wifi calling would resolve it if their phones supported the feature. Secondly, CS fall back is annoying when you receive a phone call in the middle of a data session, particularly tethering.

      7 pro is much better

      there was some good price for it listed here

        Not really not worth the price.

        Watch the quality of the back casing Jerryrigeverything you will be surprised 7pro did not pass the test

        • +9 votes

          who cares about the back casing
          just get a case for it…

          Jerryrigeverything wrecks all the phones in a way that is not likely to be a real life use case
          unless you are intentionally wrecking it like him

          Also what back casing issue you talking about?
          He is scratching it with a knife and I don't see it getting scratched
          https://youtu.be/wLmiWPHPqhU?t=230

          I am more interested in better spec and refresh rate
          also there is no notch or camera hole punch which I don't like on any phone

          this is not bad price

            @pinkybrain: Back glass just cracks with some bending. Reports all over the web before. Cracks inside people's pockets. Nevertheless go with what you like I'm skipping both oneplus 7 and 8

          •  

            @pinkybrain: Also what's with his asinine "burn test"?

            I'm sick and tired of this guy being some sort of paragon of virtue and people eating up all his bullcrap.

          •  

            @pinkybrain: Well said. I've watched some videos of Jerry rigs everything and no phones survived his test.

        •  

          Also that's the 7T that failed the test, not the 7 Pro. Two very different phones.

      • +6 votes

        To be fair though, there is no end to this line of thought.
        I had the 3T, 6, and now the 8 Pro.
        The 7 Pro you link to is great, but the no longer available deal at an arguably dodgier site was also >40% more than this listing. You can "Oh just spend 40% more" all day long, nek minnit, you spent $2k.

        This 6T is still v competitive against a lot of the Oppo/motorola range at this price point.

        •  

          I agree fully

        •  

          i mean for the software updates alone you are better with Oneplus than Oppo and motorola

        •  

          8 pro user here. Just got mine two weeks ago and I'm very happy with it. Especially the camera, it's a lot better than my old Samsung note 9.

    •  

      Yeah, the absence of wireless charging is a bummer. I've never really felt the need for additional external storage though.

      •  

        Agree with storage but I already have many micro SDs:(

        You don't need wireless charging….

        I don't understand what's so hard about plugging in a cable that delivers charging so quickly without heating the phone unlike having coils inside for wireless….

        Dash charging always faster than wireless

        • +2 votes

          Once you have wireless chargers and get used to having wireless charging it is very convenient. I could live without it, but it will definitely be a serious consideration when I get another phone.

          •  

            @Fappo: That's true, but it really depends on the charging technology. I thought the same when I had my S8 and I was really used to wireless charging and happy to forget about the cable and loose ports, but I changed to a OP7 one year ago and It hasn't been bad at all. I plug my phone every morning and after shower and breakfast it's enough to leave the house with about 80-90%. So in my case, not having wireless charging it's not an issue. Although, I would love having fast wireless charging for my next phone

          •  

            @Fappo: Sure however you still need a wireless charging pad plugged into something.

            Until the day you don't need that charging pad and stream power off powerpoints then I might consider it has to charge lightning fast as well without heat. I doubt we will see in our lifetime

          • +1 vote

            @Fappo: Had an s7 with wireless charge, bought the Oppo Reno 10x without it as a replacement. Lack of wireless charge hasn't bothered me in the slightest, however I wasn't a huge fan of it anyway. Phone got too hot.

        • +1 vote

          I have the 7t and if I need to charge it up quickly I use the warp charger. People say they use the wireless charger to charge overnight but it's a mute point for me.

          I have a charge station in the living room and other charges throughout the house.

          The only use case I see wireless charging being applicable to me is if I had a newer model car with android auto and the car had a place to qi charge my phone which would save me from mucking around with cables and caddies.

          •  

            @Hahuh: But sadly only aftermarket (Kenwood etc.) stereos do wireless android auto via wifi. New cars with QI charging won't then be able to use Android Auto without plugging in with the cable. :-(

    • +3 votes

      Don't really need either.

      Everything is cloud these days and its got plenty of onboard space. You sacrifice water proofing usually for it.

      The dash charge is stupid fast ( 10% to full in under 30 minutes )

      It doesn't have DAC anyway, why does it matter?

      • +1 vote

        lack of DAC aside on an even more basic level, need to connect those xiaomi pistons & hybrids to a jack! very happy with the OP6, i'm sure 6T is just as good but it's ironic that after making a point that apple/samsung had bailed on the jack, they go ahead and do the same in the same SD 845 generation lol

            @neonlight: Everything with an analogue headphone out has a DAC of some form or another.

            •  

              @9839002: Quality of the DAC chip matters. Else there's nothing call audiophiles

              • +1 vote

                @neonlight: Is English not your first language? Perhaps you can try using complete sentences in your posts.

                A DAC by definition, is a digital to analogue converter. Every device that converts a digital signal to an analogue signal does so with a DAC.

                •  

                  @9839002: When I say DAC I mean a proper DAC chip that comes with the phone that gives better quality sound than ordinary stereo including QuadDAC.

                  You are just nitpicking on words. You know what I mean in the first place.

                  Stop trying to troll and put personal comments on others. Its offensive. I don't see you having perfect English either, do I care? Do I comment about it? The answer is no.

                  If you want to defend the word DAC and terminology. Go with it. I see no point continuing.

                  All I'm giving others is an opinion of this phone.

                  I have this phone close to 2 years therefore sharing my own opinion on sound quality

                  Don't be a snob.

    If you need VoLTE/VoWiFi, an equivalent phone (SD845 etc) is the Mi Mix 3 - $445 at Allphones with 24 months warranty and tax invoice

    •  

      Just out of curiosity how do you get a case on the Mi Mix 3, given its a sliding screen?

      •  

        I think you only need to slide it to take "selfies", so for a person like me, thats couple times a year, shouldn't be a problem lol

      • +2 votes

        Cases I've seen for it cover it well on the top and both sides but have a section at the bottom missing so the screen can slide. Seems reasonably secure but still probably not as good as a regular case for a normal phone.

    Great phone, highly recommended, I'm actually looking to offload both my OnePlus 6T and 7 Pro as I've recently bought an Oppo Find X2 Pro.

    I had VoLTE and VoWiFi working on both phones with Optus using a common workaround available on the XDA Developers forums.

    Worth upgrading from a OnePlus 5T?

    • +4 votes

      I probs wouldn't. My general rule of thumb is upgrade every 2+ generations. So I'd go from 5T to 7 Pro/7T Pro. Or 8 series if you want.

      Wait for the 8. OP improvements has been incremental.

      I'm still on the OnePlus 5.

      Haven't seen any reason to upgrade yet, especially with the new Android update that just came along. Easily the best phone I've ever had in terms of performance / longevity.

      •  

        Same as you. My wife and I are still rocking the 5. Just doesn't die.

        •  

          It's so good! My partner recently got a new Samsung for like $250-$300 and it's awful compared to this. I will look for another one if it carks it

    Still using this since November 2018. The longest time so far for an Android phone.

    It might make it to the 2 year mark.

    Better price point than 7 and 8

    Oneplus gotten greedy they are no good any more

      Still on a 5t.. Got a note 20, was basically the same phone with a better camera except out of pocket for $1200 so just sold it lol.

    Many people are now running VoLTE and VoWifi on Oneplus 6, 7, and 8. I have a Oneplus 6 myself and am running both VoLTE and VoWifi on Telstra with no issues.

    Here are the instructions to get it working:

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-8-pro/help/volte-vo...

      If you going to flash a custom rom, no need to do the fix. Most of roms sources already have this patch.

    •  

      Thanks mate, I've followed the instructions and my international OnePlus 7T Pro now fully support VoLTE and VoWiFi!

    •  

      Thanks, OP6 - got VoLTE working (Boost), no sign of VoWiFi :-(

      •  

        VoWiFi started working too, after I made a call, Thank you :-)

    •  

      Do you have to root the phone to enable VoLTE?

  •  

    I wonder what model this is as it says it's single SIM. I know there were locked carrier versions with it elsewhere in the world. Kills the deal for me unfortunately.

      Yeah, judging by how long I had my OPO, it'll probably be a while until I feel the need to upgrade my OP5T.

      Same here but with OnePlus 5, thinking of getting the Nord.

      •  

        The Nord looks like a great phone! I hope the battery life is good! I'm sure this will be my next phone too! Lets hope for a reasonable price, estimates are $700AUD currently on GSM Arena.

        Ive only ever looked for phones with great cameras and a smaller size, i.e. 6" but nothing hits that spot in the current market.

      Love my OnePlus 5T too. Battery lasts all day, still getting updates and the phone hasn't shown any noticeable lag with age/use. Put a spigen case on it and it's been near indestructible!

        It's so durable, god knows how many times I've dropped it, slammed it into the ground etc. Currently I don't even have a case on it and its still barely scratched up and showing no signs of age software wise. For $600 it has more than payed off in value.

    I've got the OP6, I remember at the time preferring it to the 6T.

    Great phones, really can't say anything wrong about OnePlus 6. No wireless charging, but don't care. It can charge so fast using the Dash Charger doesn't bother me.

    •  

      OP6 line is the last great OP I reckon although I'm biased lol

  •  

    I think people pay more attention on the specs than any other else. For me, I really focus on the communications like VoLTE, VoWifi or noise-filtering. I have run a communication test with my friend, who is currently using the Note 10, and I owned a oneplus 5T, the test is including:
    We are all in the same private room
    - he will try to play some background music, news from his computer with his phone on speaker and ask if i can hear the background noise
    - I will do the same as well.
    Result: Samsung has done an excellent job in blocking any "uninvited" noise except human voice(I dont know how can they totally block the news read by reporters as well), however, oneplus is just, I believe that they cut the cost from this, really crap in filtering those noises that my friend can hear exactly what I had played in the background.
    It is really concern me at this moment, even though, I love my oneplus a lot in terms of UI, experience, but Samsung do put some weigh on in comparision.

      But how much did both phones cost new? :-)

    Still have not been given a good reason to upgrade from my OP6. I guess the bump screen refresh rate would be nice, but everything else seems so gimmicky. How much processing power do you need in a phone when OP6 is still so fast?

    •  

      OP6 is still quite remarkable. I am noticing some delay with Camera (especially Portrait) though.

    •  

      For me it's the degrading battery. Warp Charge kills it quicker so I've stopped using it. Leaning more towards the 7T/Pro to get some of that upgraded camera action for when travel is possible again.

    • +1 vote

      OP6 can still hold it's own. In fact, after OP6, the upgrades have been simply incremental. I could not see much practical difference between SD 845 and 855 (benchmarks aside), and the refresh rate seems really gimmicky. The only thing I wish would improve is the in-screen fingerprint sensor. The physical one on OP6 is lightning quick, while the OP6T's in-screen one (and the ones after that) has not been the game changer it was promised as.

    Still love my Aussie soft-launched OP5. Shame the battery is starting to degrade now.
