It's hard not to be disappointed by the fact the 5G-enabled OnePlus Nord mid-ranger is skipping an official US release, at least in its first incarnation, but at the same time, it's definitely worth considering one of the company's older high-end phones if you're strapped for cash or simply don't want to spend a small fortune on a new handset.
OnePlus 7T might be even more appealing than ever before right now at a reduced price of $399. That's down from $599 almost a year ago and $499 as recently as May, although you can technically take your savings all the way up to 450 bucks if you purchase the device from T-Mobile on a monthly installment plan with a new line of wireless service.Deemed quite possibly the best value in mobile tech at the time of its commercial debut, the

The OnePlus 7T holds a number of other significant advantages over the slightly cheaper $350 Pixel 4a, including a Fluid AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate technology, two extra gigs of memory, a bigger 3,800mAh battery supporting faster 30W charging capabilities, and a premium metal-and-glass construction. Unless you really like that vanilla Android or the classic (read outdated) design of Apple's second-gen iPhone SE, this is truly a no-brainer.
