OP7 Pro crazy price

    The OP7 Pro is crazily expensive here in Hong Kong. Its over US$120 more expensive here compared to the U.S. Thats very strange because phones are usually cheaper in Hong Kong.

    At the price its being sold, it is cheaper to get a brand new S10+ with 8GB than a OP7 Pro with 8GB.

    If I were you, I will just get across the border to mainland China and get one. Then replace hydrogen os by installing oxygen. I mean, OnePlus is cheapest in China since it is a Chinese company.

    Similar story in Australia. It is not available to buy locally through OnePlus however is available via some online retailers. They are selling an 8gb version for $100 more than an S10+ of equivalent specs.

    Of course if you're willing to buy through a less than reputable location it can be bought for about $500 less than others.... but you run many risks.

    Ultimately though price means nothing if someone really wants something...

    I feel like we should start referring to people as "fanperson" rather than "fanboy"

    This way we are more gender inclusive :) :)

    Been using OP phones for a while and really like the balance between cost and features.

    I didnt mind the price bump in recent years but pricing a "flagship killer" above a full spec flagship is crazy considering OP phones have very terrible resale/trade-in value compared to "cheaper flagships"

    Then buy one a 7 Pro at the price it's available at or buy from some other region where it's cheaper and forego the warranty. Your choice.

    Good suggestion but i think this will void the warranty

    Installing a ROM will not void the warranty.

    But you have no warranty anyway if you buy it from a different region.

    You dont complain at $180 more?
    You just settle and pay?
    Then they will keep doing it.
    Every year that disparity gets bigger, it's averaging $60 per year since the OP3 in the UK

    £67 cheaper than the UK.
    £100 more than a MI9.
    A OP just isn't cheap anymore.​


    But OP-HK expensive than OP-China about US$100
