    I'm not getting the figures sorry,

    7t pro is £699
    24 x £36 + £29 = £893
    £893-£699=£194
    Unlimited data/text/minutes is £8.08 a month

    Can the phone be bought cheaper?

    Yes, you just got it for £431. If you could find a shop selling it for £839 then you could think you got the mins/texts/data for free.

    Just smashed the back of my 7T Pro :o
    34 years of age and I've never broke or damaged a phone in my life. Fell off my living room table.
    I see on the OnePlus website a replacement back cover is just £22, that seems very reasonable. I suppose at the end of the day it's just a thin layer of glass. Any idea what the total price would be with labours added in?
    Has anyone any experience with OnePlus repairs? Should I expect a reasonable turnaround?

    Back glass replacement on a recent model iphone is something like 500 quid, if that makes you feel any better.

    Crazy, Apple are either using magic glass or they are really sinking the arm in! Although in reality the OnePlus back panel (having watched YouTube videos) is actually your standard plastic affair with a very thin sheen of glass on the outer edge so that would surely have something to do with it.
    Anyhow, I ended up buying one from eBay for £18. I did a DIY replacement on a Sony Experia back panel a few years ago, it went fine so why I'll give it a shot! :p

    I've heard that changing the glass on an iPhone is quite difficult and labour intensive because it's really hard to remove without shattering it into lots of pieces. Plus enormous Apple tax of course.

    did you have to go in/on chat for that deal? Can't find anything close via website or 3app.

    That's a great deal, especially with the OP8 launch most likely postponed for a few months.

    May as well skip right to OP 8T?

    7T reduced to £469 brand new from the rainforest. Pretty decent price if you ask me :D
    If I didn't already own a 7T Pro I'd be very tempted.

    Is it worth going from a mate 20x to this do you think the 7t? Hate the slow updates on the mate, plus like the look of oxygen os.

    I got an email from Oneplus yesterday inviting me to watch the web launch for the OP8 range on 14th April so seems like its going ahead as usual.

    I'm sure it will be great but I'll be keeping an eye out for 7 Pro or T variant on the second hand market, price should come down nicely after launch.

    Notchless 90Hz panel should keep my happy for a while along with the rest of the package.

    Half tempted to grab the rainforest deal. No problem with the 5T, just getting a little upgrade itch. That said, really rather want 5G capability with any new phone, and it would be a bit pointless to move to phone to tide me for the next 24-36 months without it.

    From a purely software side I'd say yes. I had a Mate 10 Pro and got rid fairly quickly because I thought EMUI was just awful. Whereas OxygenOS is hands down the best version of Android out there.

    Bought the 7T for myself and the wife to replace Galaxy Note 4's. Didn't realise we'd had them for 5 years! Really nice phone, I've been following OnePlus since they started and impressed. The OP8 will be too much for me and the Samsung's were getting show and annoying. Very happy for the price paid, so fast and a great screen, loving OxygenOS and Android 10 so far.

    Has anyone else noticed that in direct light (particularly sunlight) the FPS doesn't work all that well? As this is our first spell of good weather since the phone was released I have noticed that the direct sunlight seems to really mess with the optical function of the scanner.
    And to compound matters my rather dishevelled lockdown look is playing havoc with my face unlock! :p

    The brightness sensor is my only gripe with this phone. I'll be interested to see if the 8 series is the same.
