OnePlus 3 getting a slight price hike in the UK after Brexit tumbles British pound


Starting next week, the OnePlus 3 will cost slightly more in the United Kingdom: the price will go up from the current £309 to £329, a £20 increase that is enforced because of the sharp decline in the value of the British pound after the Brexit.

"Given the effects of the unstable markets on our extremely thin margins, we’re reluctantly going to have make some small changes to our pricing structure for the device. In practical terms for our customers, this means that from July 11, 2016 (that’s next Monday), the OnePlus 3 will be £329 in the UK," OnePlus manager David S wrote in an official post on the OnePlus forums.

OnePlus has given its UK customers a heads-up a few days prior to this announcement, and there is still almost a week in which the customers who want to get their OnePlus 3 as soon as possible would still be able to place orders at the lower price.

The company says that this price hike only affects its OnePlus 3 and none of the accessories or other devices it sells in the United Kingdom.

An interesting tid bit that OnePlus shares in this post is about demand. OnePlus mentions "significant demand" for the device currently and that's great news for its latest flagship. You can take a look at our detailed OnePlus 3 review to learn more about it, but also don't forget that a lot of the current issues (poor color calibration and RAM management issues) are allegedly fixed in an update that has started rolling out and will come to OnePlus 3 users within the next few days.

And if the pound goes back up does the price immediately come back down? In my experience... No.

Nice job pricing yourself out of the competition One Plus! S7 is already around £400 mark here. So why shouldn't people pay £70 more for a better phone with excellent customer service, wider availability of acessories and much more 4G bands ?

Damn, we aren't officially separate yet but I understand because of the strength of the £.

Disagree with the "excellent" customer service. Sent my S6 to the service centre twice with a hardware fault and they did not repair it (stating that they could not replicate the INTERMITTENT hardware fault that I demonstrated on video), went to a Samsung Customer experience store and they told me 72 hours minimum and I was not in the country that long, and then went to another Customer experience store and they told me 4 weeks repair time (I have already been 3 weeks without the phone at the repair centres!). Both of the Customer experience stores agreed it was a hardware fault... This is the first of many Samsung devices to have a problem but the service has not been great! Hoping to go the the "flagship" store in London but quite a journey to fix a hardware fault and I will probably have to leave it a few days and come back.
