My OnePlus 8 arrived today for me is it a upgrade when you come from normal 7 like me. The scrolling smoothness on 90hz is really nice and way better compare to the normal 7. The curved screen is not that bad as I thought. The punch hole camera is needing to get used.But all in all to me is a nice phone which runs pretty fast and smooth. So will see whether I can like the punch hole or not, if not I sent the phone back :good:

I've changed the screen setting so the camera hole is above the main display now. I don't notice the reduced screen space and it means I really don't notice the 'punched hole'.

    Hi all,

    I currently have a OnePlus 5, purchased when it was first announced. It's still doing sterling service, but is now getting to be 3 years old. I was in the market for a new phone as the OP5's GPS is not that reliable (at least, not on my phone) and I wanted something different. I was looking at the OP 7T from last year. Seemed OK.

    However, I watched the intro from OnePlus yesterday and was struck by three points:
    1. It has the latest of everything. Therefore, it should have fewer hardware bugs (e.g. GPS)
    2. It has 5G - which I can get on my current Vodafone contract
    3. It will get support from OnePlus for longer.

    What finally swayed my decision was the offer, for the same list price, of a box set with the new headphones and a case included - oh, and delivery by tomorrow.

    So, I bit the bullet and ordered one - I went for the top model 8 (12Gb/25Gb) as I want the storage but I don't believe the extra £200 for the top model 8 Pro is worth it.

    I'll report back here when it arrives.

    It arrived today in an enourmous box. What I ordered was one of the early 'pop up' offers which, for the list price, gives me two extra bumper cases (cyan and black) as well as a clear one plus the new OnePlus Z headphones. It came with 51% battery charge and, when set up, immediately did an OS upgrade to the latest.

    The unboxing pictures are below.

    I also did a "OnePlus Switch" to move my apps and data across from my old phone. It all went very smoothly.

    I only have two issues

    Minor one - I lost all my old conversations from WhatsApp.
    Not so minor one (but not OnePlus's fault). I have an app which connects to a camera at my fathers house so I can see when he is sitting down and that he is OK. I've forgotten the password so I have to keep my old phone, just for that app!
