    Order it from Amazon.de, with Amazon Prime you get 30 EUR off.

    Finland ALV 24%, yet it seems to be 399 and 499 EUR.

    I preordered it from the Bulgarian EMAG. There is a 10% discount even, so I bought the phone for about 360 euros with free shipment.

    So whoever buys from oneplus directly to support them, gets rewarded by a more expensive price. Nice.

    Well, it is all a mixed bag. If you are in Europe and you see the indian prices, yeah you will feel bad. Even in EU countries, the price difference is quite big. The one example I can think of is the Greek and German prices. If you can preorder from OP and get the buds as a gift and sell them later then I guess it is worth it. Otherwise no.

    I agree that it is a mixed bag but exactly the same scenario applies to countless other consumer products. Different prices in different parts of the world. There are different rates of purchase taxes from nation to nation, territories within nations so the price you pay is based on the local context. Haven't we all tried to buy items from different counties and import them because that will save us money? Don't we buy things when abroad or in duty free locations in order to pay less? I totally agree that as a customer in the UK I can look at how much cheaper the phone is in India. I know that there is a whole conversation to be had about the 'mystery gift' and how that varied according to location. But just considering the phone itself I would suggest that the pricing variations would apply to any device at launch whether it is a phone or whatever it is. Because of the differences in economies it is not logical that the same price can be or will be charged in all territories. What are you suggesting - everyone pays the American rates or the Indian? That is not the way the world works as we know.

    Thats the reason we are part of the EU! There is no reason for different prices in the EU.

    Unfortunately there is EVERY reason why there are different prices in the EU. Obviously my situation is being in the UK as we are in the final stages of leaving the EU and the associated EU project - the rights or wrongs of the electorate making that choice is a whole different question. However there are still separate economies throughout the EU with separate counties setting their own taxation in line with their fiscal plans. Uniformity would seem to be attractive but I would suggest that it is a long way off.

    Based on this, means that the untaxed price should be the same for all and the diffrence comes from the tax i.e. VATor saless tax. I know greece has very high tax but it does not add up. Germany is 399 with 16%, Bulgaria 409 with 20%, Slovenia 419 with 22% so the untaxed version is about 340-345. So the greek price wit 24% should be around 430 euro. As mentioned I bought it "locally" from the bulgarian EMAG store with 10% off of 409 euros. I guess shipping to other EU coutries will cost less than 10 euros.

    Every country handles different rates on importing goods, especially electronics are rated the highest and it's very possible that you all live in the EU, but eventhough EU advises to follow certain regulations, countries sometimes do whatever they suits best and a country is not different than running a business and everything needs to make money at some point.
    The imports costs are always charged towards the end consumer and then you end up with the taxes that goes on top of that ending your goods at a certain price.

    If you feel like that the Nord is to expensive, you can always check out the Realme X50! Realme and Oneplus are part of the same group and the Nords is basically a rebranded X50 with less plastic (housing) and a lower refreshrate on the screen. Google the specs of both and be surpriced that Oneplus did a Huawei move.

    This is the time that people draw the "racism" card way to fast! It tells more about the persons who start crying that kind of nonsense in my opinion.

    Taxes don't account for the price difference..Holland has higher VAT then Germany, yet the price is the same €399...Indeed this is just price gauging for Eastern Europe.
