    €100 cheaper than in europe –‘ I don’t know if that’s all about taxes, or if they juste feel like taking more money out of our pockets, but I’m not buying this.
    They could at least spread the cost a bit more over the different continents, so that everyone gets to buy the 1+5 for around €450. Even then the price would have increased again from the oneplus 3t….

      Probably mostly about taxes but also about purchasing power. It doesn’t make sense to adjust the price to make it “the same” (when it’s not due to differences in purchasing power) everywhere.

      I emailed them, they said it was taxes. Some governments are judging chinese company for Dumping product.

    Please, Giztop. I’ll buy from your store if you keep its retail price and not increase it by 30%.

    • $499 on giztop, it’s best price for oneplus 5 on international shops.
