I was hoping for a bit of a discount on the 7T but at this price, the 7 pro 6gb 128gb variant seems like the way to go

SOMEONE PERSUADE ME NO TO GET IT, I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO

Wow, they are finally offering the OnePlus 7 Pro at the same price I paid to get it from China several months ago.

I got the 7T because the Qualcomm 865 chip seems to be a terrible choice. It will keep both 4G and 5G modem activated at the same time whenever you use 4G due to the lack of 4G within the same silicon. At least that is what I think it would do.

Do you have a link about this? I'm interested in understand it more. The 7t is $160 more than the 6gb 128gb 7 Pro and am wondering if its worth the price difference.

It's the 7 pro they are offering though. Qualcomm 855 vs the 855+ in the 7t.

At this price I would have to go 7 pro unless you really don't like the curved screen or really need the brighter screen on the 7t

Is there another phone that would be a good alternative to 7 pro at this price range? Trying to weigh out my options

Isn't it still better to get the 8gb/256gb variant of the 7 pro over the 6gb/128gb?

I would say so but only if you need double the storage. If you have a student beans account you can get 5 percent off as well

Aliexpress was still selling the 7T for like $600 just a week ago.

Sure but to my knowledge neither the 7t or 7 pro use Qualcomm 866 chips

That isn't my arguement. My argument is AGAINST the next generation of Qualcomm chip. Which means if you don't want the next generation flagships, you will have to wait one more years to upgrade. Or upgrade now.

Okay I misunderstood now I see what you meant

On another note I have both the 7 pro and the 7t and they are so close in performance it's essentially a wash. 7t is a little lighter and in my opinion easier to hold

I would personally still take the 7 pro over the 7t but would be more than happy with either of them. The 7t has a ridiculously bright screen which will be great for outdoor visibility in the summer but even on my 7 pro only use it as 50% brightness

Ugh - I bought the 8gb/256 Pro model in the black Friday sale. Now wondering if the 6GB/128 Pro model would have been sufficient. Just received shipping confirmation today so I'll have 15 days to make a choice I guess.
