The OnePlus 7T has always been priced aggressively but I woke up today and saw that it is now even cheaper – like way cheaper!
The OnePlus 7T is one heck of a phone. It looks great, performs brilliantly, and is kitted out with spec that’d make the iPhone 11 Pro Max blush. And right now you can pick it up for just $479.99/£459.
For that money, you’ll want to act fast – I don’t see this kind of discount lasting for a while. The reason the OnePlus 7T has had its price slashed is that the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro have just landed. The OnePlus 8 range is a big update as well, although both phones come with a pretty hefty price hike…
Is the OnePlus 7T still worth buying in 2020? Absolutely! If you’re after a powerful smartphone that can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it, has a brilliant OLED panel, great battery life, amazing software, thanks to Oxygen OS, and a solid camera, then the OnePlus 7T still comes highly recommended – even in 2020.
In fact, given the price of the OnePlus 8 range, I’d wager that plenty of existing OnePlus users – meaning those running the 6 or 6T – will probably opt for the OnePlus 7T over the OnePlus 8 simply because it is so much cheaper. You’re also getting a 90Hz OLED display, tons of performance thanks to its 8GB of RAM and Snapdragon 855 CPU, and 128GB of storage as standard. Given all that, it’s easy to see why we’d recommend the OnePlus 7T (VIEW LATEST OFFERS) to anyone that is after value for money in 2020.
