With its new flagship Android phones enteringOnePlus’ 8-series handsets are currently at all-time low levels on Amazon. You can grab the company’s first helping hand on a full-featured high-end device, the OnePlus 8 Pro, for $ 700. Or, if you are looking for something cheaper and you don’t mind the slightly smaller size, there is the OnePlus 8T for $ 600. That’s a savings of 30% and 20%, respectively, with the prices also being reflected on that of OnePlus. to place.
It’s only natural for a current generation handset to get a price cut when it launches its successor, but these two 5G phones still come with future-proof specs. Plus, we gave them strong review marks in the 80s because of their beautiful displays, great performance, and fast charging.
Both phones essentially tout similar features, with the only major difference being the smaller 6.55-inch display on the 8T, compared to the 6.78-inch display on the 8 Pro. Selling models include the maximum of 256GB of out-of-the-box storage, 12GB of RAM, and that impressive AMOLED display running in Quad HD +. Best of all, they refresh at a rate of 120Hz, which makes everything from browsing the web and in apps to playing optimized games just beautiful. You can grab the 8 Pro in black or a more eye-catching ultramarine blue and the 8T in lunar silver or aquamarine green.
Of course, that still leaves you with the eternal dilemma of whether to wait for the upgrade. The OnePlus 9 series is set to debut on March 23, and the phone maker talked about its partnership with Hasselblad ahead of the unveiling, so you can expect plenty of pro-grade photography features. But if you find that doesn’t move the needle and want to upgrade immediately to 5G, the 8 Series offers one of the best Android experiences.
