Deal: Shun the alternatives, grab yourself a OnePlus 7 for less than $800

GearBest's latest flash sale gives you the chance to pick up OnePlus' latest 'flagship-killer' for just over AU$700.

Launched only two months ago, the OnePlus 7 features a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 855 processor, 3700mAh battery, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of on-board storage and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The back of the device boasts a triple-lens rear camera with a 48-megapixel primary sensor and 5-megapixel telephoto lens. There's also a 16-megapixel selfie camera on the front. 

At AU$715, it's a solid 20% discount on the device's regular price-tag. GearBest are even throwing in free shipping.

The beefier OnePlus 7 Pro is also on sale. It boasts a larger (and nicer) screen, bigger battery and a more powerful camera system on the back. For the next three days, you'll be able to nab it for just over AU$900.

PC World's review of the OnePlus 7 Pro rated it quite highly. In Michael Simon's review, he says that "The OnePlus 7 Pro is everything a OnePlus phone isn’t supposed to be. It has a better screen than the Galaxy S10+. It has a nicer design than the iPhone XR. And its front camera puts the Pixel 3 XL’s notch to utter shame."

While there are certain drawbacks to importing a brand that doesn't officially offer its products in Australia, there are significant savings to consider for those willing to take the risk. The OnePlus 7 boasts comparable specs to something like Samsung's Galaxy S10 at almost half the price.
