OnePlus 6T $40 Off -Starting at $729

Deal Link:
Retailer:
OnePlus
OnePlus does not plan to sell the OnePlus 7, its new, lower-cost alternative to the OnePlus 7 Pro, in North America. Instead, the company will continue to offer the OnePlus 6T to consumers in Canada and the U.S. who want to purchase a new OnePlus smartphone but don’t want to spend the extra money needed to afford the company’s latest flagship. To make up for the missing OP7, OnePlus is discounting the price of the 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB 6T models by $40, making them $729 and $799, respectively.

OP7 or bust. Bad deal. Should give like 200$ off to make it a proper deal.
😎Thanks RFD😎

Not sure why they don't offer the 7 alongside the 7 pro. Giving consumers choice is good, since the 7 pro is so expensive people can opt for a Samsung or Google phone. Their other phones had a huge advantage since they used to be a lot cheaper with top of the line specs.

I must say that the Oneplus 6t is a very good phone. I own one and could not be happier. Very fast phone, constant updates and 0 issues thus far.

I remember when 1+ was truly a budget brand of flagship specced devices. My OnePlus One was less than 400$ back in 2014. At these prices, they're just like every other manufacturer.

For a similar price, I'd much rather get a Google Pixel:

Exactly, plus their resale values tend to hold up better than other phone brands.

The Zenfone 6, when it arrives, will likely be a better smartphone choice. Depending on the Canadian pricing, that is.

I'd like to point out that when the OnePlus initially launched, the entire premise was that it was a flagship/premium phone at a sub $300 pricetag,, and now it has slowly crept up to this hefty pricetag (a thousand bucks for the newest model!)

I think the Pocofone is the closest to the Oneplus One. Oneplus wants fatter margins, so they've gone upmarket.

I don't know if they won't ship only the 7 but I just ordered the 7 pro and they will ship that one to Montréal

That sounds like bs to me. Why would people pay more for an old oneplus when the attraction to the brand is flagship specs for non-flagship price? Hell, buying new OP phones is becoming less attractive now, why would used be different?

I think one of the reasons why the resale value tend to hold up is because it was already "cheap" to begin with.

I looked at a few brands on Kijiji with the same Snapdragon processors, ie. Samsung, LG, vs Oneplus
Oneplus relative to its original MSRP seems to hold better, so in percentage terms depreciation is lower.

That's because very few buy Samsung/LG/pixel etc at msrp since they get it subsidized unlike one plus. The OnePlus is a bad deal when you can churn Koodo or get a subsidized phone from carrier

There's a difference between asking price and actual selling price, you might have seen ones asking for more for the 1+ however I doubt you'll be able to actually sell it for even the same price as it's Samsung counterpart. You would probably not get many offers/inquiries and most of those listings are old.

Not many people know 1+ really and I doubt many are willing to risk buying an unknown used phone with no proper support/warranty.

The exchange rate was close to par in 2014. Plus phones were simpler back then. Now it's a feature arms race with fingerprint scanners, notches, advanced cameras, etc.

Which is still a budget model compared to the best versions of other flagships. It is a PRO model after all.

Was really considering the OnePlus 7 (non-Pro), but that decision is easier now...

I think they could do a little better than $40 off, that's pitiful for what's now a last-gen phone.

I'm writing this on my Oneplus one, circa 2014, which cost me $372 USD ($480 CDN now) with no tax back then. Ordered the 7pro 12GB/256GB Nebula blue with the nylon black bumper case and 6 month screen protection, final cost was $1351. I plan on getting five years out of this one too.

If you want the 6T at a better price the Chinese sites are selling them at reduced cost or if you wait a bit they will probably have the 7 also.

As for getting a phone on a plan, I'm paying $28 a month so BYOD is the only option. My friend in Netherlands laugh at our mobile options as he pays 25 euro a month and gets a new phone and 10 GB data.
