Need help, the version released in Europe are different to the Chinese ones?
When this will be available in UAE?

If you are really smart, you wouldn't judge devices based on Brands but on their actual performance.
Nobody buying outdated OS that receives latest features 5 years late.
Even the HW in the ecosystem is 5 years behind.
Chinese manufacturers are at the forefront of innovation while Apple playing catchup.
Flgshp2020, 07 Mar 2020You are just justifying your purchase of the iPhone Xr. Not our fault that you chose to buy ... moreWhile I don't believe any smartphone should cost $1000 and above, at least iPhones retain its value and are updated way longer than fragmented Android devices lol. If you're smart then you'll wait for the prices to drop before experiencing your new and "more premium" experience.
Flgshp2020, 07 Mar 2020Still better than overpriced iPhone in terms of quality. LOL! Not at all. My clumsy brother dropped his iPhone XS Max several times on various surfaces and there wasn't any noticeable damage to it. He gave it to his girlfriend and now uses an iPhone 11 Pro Max.

.alpha, 06 Mar 2020Expensive until you realize Samsung is asking $1600 for the same storage and in some market do... moreAt least Samsung has strong brand recognition and reliability on top of top-notch specs whereas Oppo doesn't. And besides, the prices of Android smartphones sink like a rock after a few short months anyway lol.
AnonD-804996, 06 Mar 2020The problem is, we were used for Chinese makers to be way cheaper. Now that they cost the same... moreIt's certainly not worth it because nobody wants to pay over a grand for a Chinese smartphone that'll stop getting version and security updates after two years, and that goes for most Android smartphones too. At least with your iPhone XR you won't have to worry about that at all.

Imported several Mi phones back in the day. Used Banggood.com for the same.
Flgshp2020, 07 Mar 2020Yes importing, vat and shipping all that costs hardly 30-40 dollar extra. That's 30$-40$ over... more30-40 eur vat + import fees for a 890eur price to start with? you want me believe that in your country the vat is less than 4%? you living in wonderland?
geek-a-contra, 07 Mar 2020what about import duties, vat, transport, warranty, servicing...? still 300 cheaper?Yes importing, vat and shipping all that costs hardly 30-40 dollar extra.
That's 30$-40$ over the original 890 Euros price.
So technically still 300 dollar cheaper (including shipping, tax, etc.).
In my country, Banggood is good site for importing stuff from China without having to pay exorbitant prices for the same. Imported so many products from Xiaomi and others that weren't available in my country at that time.
I dunno if Oppo provides worldwide warranty but most of these sellers do provide 1 year seller warranty. If the handset has some issue, it'll probably surface within a month, where you can replace it.
Either ways won't be sending them the phone if any minor non manufacturing defect happens, instead get it repaired from Oppo service Centre for a few bucks.
Been Using smartphones for a decade now, never had a phone give me problems before warranty. Or for that matter any electronic gear. But I have had several electronic devices malfunction/fail just after their warranty period expires.
But at the end, I'll wait to see what price it is launched at in my country, which will definitely be cheaper than S20 ultra base variant. If it is launched at 1200 Euro price which is unlikely, I am importing.
Flgshp2020, 07 Mar 2020So basically 300 dollars less if you import it from China. Let's see what price it is launche... morewhat about import duties, vat, transport, warranty, servicing...? still 300 cheaper?

Plus Oppo charging heavy price since base variant is 512gb storage /12gb RAM.
Other manufacturers with 512gb base storage and 12gb RAM charging similar.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2020You even wasted that moneyThat's your opinion. I'm having one of the best experiences on phone to date. And finally free of all the Android shit I was having. Google privacy shenanigans included.
Oppo will be pricey....more so their find series. For reasonably pricey offerings wait for realme flagships that will correspond to these phones.

Good phone; top of the line spec's atm but it will fail because of price. It is way too expensive.
