    OnePlus 7 has an OLED screen and OIS camera but it costs more doesn't it?

    ZenFone 6 could be favoured if you like the bigger battery, 3.5mm headphone jack, and price is keener.

    OP7 starts at £499 for 6gb RAM and 128GB storage and is an evolution of the 6t

    OP7 Pro starts at £649, and is the one with the pop-up selfie camera, better screen etc.

    Both have OIS and OLED, I think, Pro has 3 cameras at the back, normal one has 'only' 2...

    With either choice I think prices drop quite quickly after launch. This seems to be the case with every smartphone except Apple branded ones. So patience will likely pay off if you can wait a few weeks.

    Best place I've found to get OP & Chinese phones is Toby Deals, got my last 2 phones from there - My OP6 was £100 less than Amazon, was able to get the 8GB/256GB version. If you don't mind waiting 3 weeks for delivery you'll get yourself a cracking deal.


    Rigs:
    Main: ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer, i7 980, 24GB Corsair Dominator GT, OCZ Vectors + HDDs, Inno3D GTX 980 iChill Herculez X4 Air Boss Ultra, Seasonic X-850W, Fractal Design Define XL, 10 x64 Pro, Noctua DH14 + stock chassis fans
