The OnePlus 7 Pro is an undeniably great device. It has almost everything you’d expect from a flagship, and even offers things others can’t like a pop-up front facing camera, an uninterrupted display, and a 90Hz refresh rate for that buttery smoothness.
However, at a base price of $669.99, it’s not exactly the OnePlus product we expected. It is not that much cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S10e and it has definitely reached into “expensive” territory. The company had made a name for itself by making affordable “flagship killers” and that doesn’t seem to be the case with this device.
Thankfully the OnePlus 7 is a great budget option for those who don’t want to opt for the 7 Pro. It features the same Snapdragon 855 processor, 48MP main rear camera, and more. It can even be decked out to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage! The triple camera has gone down to just a dual camera and the display is downgraded to 60Hz and with a teardrop notch, but the devices are very similar and the standard OnePlus 7 is very much still a flagship in many ways.
Unfortunately, it is not available in the US. Our only official option is the pricey OnePlus 7 Pro. However, you can still import an international model of the OnePlus 7. The highest spec 8GB RAM and 256GB storage version is currently on sale for $489.99, but if you use coupon code “GBMPOP7256” at checkout (without the quotes of course), you will save an extra $10 and bring the price down to only $479.99. That’s a great deal for such a powerful device. Do check the bands are compatible with your carrier, and hit the source link to get yours!
Update: $479.99 still a bit too much money? If you’re really on a budget, grabbing some superseded but still very modern tech is the way to go. Grab the barely 8 month old OnePlus 6T for only $419.99. Featuring a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and dual rear cameras, you get a lot of phone for the money.
