So all in for under R9k? Excellent value!!

Super chuffed dude! Nearly placed an order for the Pro this morning with the R/$ dropping under 14.

But we going to trial this beast first make sure everyone in the family is happy then I’ll go ahead with another one.

3 people from my company have also ordered so we bundled some accessories with each persons order as Iv never had a USB C device. So it’s the process of changing all USB stuff to that and getting right of the iPhone lightning cables.

I was looking at getting a oneplus 7 pro, I can get it from Zeek for about R14k:
https://www.zeekonline.co.za/collec.../oneplus-7-pro-128gb-6gb-dual-sim-mirror-gray

That seems way more expensive then you guys are getting it for even after customs, if I order it from gearbest or something similar will it work out much cheaper then the one on Zeek?

Also will I need to flash it or anything like that?

Sorry man... Worth the wait though. Since the day I traded my iPhone 6s in for a OP3T I've always felt that OP's fluidity and speed was on a par with iOS, if not quicker.

The 3t/5/5t/6/6t were all speed merchants that ran quicker than anything else on the market at the time. Fluidity of the overall UI experience, I always felt was just shaded by iOS.... until now... the Pro is every bit as smooth as any top end iPhone/iPad. What a delight?!!!

If call recording is so important to you, just root your phone. takes 2 seconds, and OnePlus actively allows bootloader unlocking.

Find it strange you'd switch manufacturers just because of that.

Rooting causes issues with banking apps.
No OTA's when rooted.
