Seems like a decent price, came to $692 delivery to north Sydney.
In before no band 28.
I'll remember this moment for the rest of my life………
In before "well that sucks"
Just saved me a whole lot of disappointment lol thanks
How do you know? There is no model listed on the page?
The title says China version.
China and India miss band 28. Need the Euro version.
The title on the sales page just says
"8T 5G Dual SIM"
Righto, there's no 4G Band 28, hard to buy-in on this model :/
Sorry for my ignorance. Why is band 28 an issue?
Telstra & Optus use it to provide 4G services, mostly in rural areas, but in the cities it's used because it has better penetration into buildings/dwellings. So if you're on Telstra/Optus or a Telstra/Optus MVNO, you'll most likely get better signal if your phone supports it.
For regional areas
Yup. Major issues in regional areas. I live in regional NSW and basically had to chuck a phone, because I couldn't get any reception. If you go outside cities and use Telstra (Aldi / Boost) or Optus and there MVNOs, then B28 is a must. Nothing worse than needing to call for assistance and there is no reception
It "can" be an issue depending on where you live. I'm definitely regional AU's but my mi max 3 with no b28 works fine. It's not as bad as people make out BUT it does depend on where you live and your provider.
I saw a table listing towers and bands. Band 28 was 25% of Telstra's 4G(X) towers.
This band stuff is new.to me but can I ask is Band 28 really an issue if its supports B1, 3, 5, 7, 8 and 40? Plus n78? From what I can tell the major networks here use all of those. Just checked mine in central Sydney and its B3.
No B2 either. https://www.abc.net.au/news/image/8585360-3x4-700x933.jpg
my brother complains about poor reception on his phone that doesn't have 28.
It'll 'probably' work fine but you need to be able to cover all bands that your carrier uses for the best experience.
Where does it say this is a Chinese version?
Look if my phone blew up this second, I'd probably get this deal, a lot of phone for the money.
How reliable is the seller?
I have no idea, but as long as they accept PayPal, then there's no problem. You may be without your money for a month but, you'll get it back, and most likely, you'll get your phone… Have never used them though.
They are on eBay, too. Bought from them on eBay, no problem.
I've bought from them a few times and haven't had any issues.
But there's zero communication and they don't respond to any emails.
own a 7t pretty good
7t owner too, overall it's a great phone except for the ridiculous auto brightness feature.
Getting a little desperate for a new phone now, and never see any specials on OP Products with Band 28 support. Other then a iPhone or Samsung Garbage, Can anyone recommend a product with OP7T-8 performance, budget is 600-700 incl shipping. Things for me is CPU and RAM, Decent (doesnt have to be amazing) camera, I dont need 100 lenses, just one back one front), Battery that would last me over a day and close to stock android. Go.
I received it and it's the Indian version KB2001
I received mine on Friday and is also Indian version. When I spoke to them via ebay they advised it was CN version on their website. Seems to working ok on Boost mobile.
Hey how is the phone? I am searching for a deal of oneplus! should I get this 8T or oneplus 7 pro? also i think the price went up?
Been happy with it so far, better battery life than my 6t and camera seems much better. mymobile.com.au has also get good pricing and you get 12 months local warranty.
