    Friends,

    Our mission has always been to provide a fair price for our flagship devices. It is a defining feature of our business model and informs every decision we make. It’s a no-brainer. We want to create and design devices based around our user needs and demands.

    Over the last year, we have furthered our efforts to provide a fair price to all, focusing on some of our most cash-strapped community members: students. This year, we were proud to launch the Student Program in partnership with Student Beans, offering a 10% student discount on the OnePlus 5. Extending this to the OnePlus 5T, we have been committed in maintaining this discount and making our latest product affordable for students.

    Unfortunately, our commitment to a fair price for all users everyone means our Student Program is unsustainable in its current form. We have therefore reached a compromise that can provide a fair price to all users and a little extra help for students. We will be reducing our student discount from 10% to 5% on the OnePlus 5T and future devices however the 10% discount on gear & accessories will remain.

    This change will happen on the 1st January, so there is still time for students to receive a 10% reduction off the OnePlus 5T!

    Thank you for your continued support and Never Settle.

    the "better" version of the OPO was 300€. Now the "better" version of the OP5T is almost double!! Did the prices for all parts evolve so much?? Can't really believe that. Why can other companies make also good phones cheaper? How much is your profit margin?

    WE are fans of OnePlus because it's a company that makes the phones together with the community. We didn't saw a lot regarding this in the last few month. (Good old times when there was a question every week! @Nicole Q. ). Bring back these times, let us become active again. Not just people who joined beta programs (which requires you to have an OP3/3T/5/5T)

    5% is still very very good but I hope it doesn't devolve into nothing a few generations from now...

    Well that is a stupid change. Depending on the country the tuition fees are pretty high. So saving on a phone definitely helps a lot!

    You should make VAT free for companies who buy from EU warehouse and have valid VAT number. In case I buy OP, I cant even order as company..
