Get up to 40% off OnePlus 9 Pro, 10T, 10 Pro and Nord 2T in Amazon sale
Prices cut across the board, including £331 off the 9 Pro
OnePlus has slashed the prices of some of its most popular smartphones as part of Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale. The savings cover everything from the flagship OnePlus 10 Pro to the mid-range Nord 2T, with the OnePlus 9 Pro reduced by as much as 40%.
A new sale event in the Amazon calendar, the Prime Early Access Sale is a warm-up for November’s annual Black Friday discount-fest. It’s running on 11 and 12 October, and you’ll need an Amazon Prime membership to claim the Early Access deals. But don’t worry if you’re not a subscriber: provided you haven’t signed up in the last 12 months, you can claim a 30-day free trial for Prime here, including all the perks.
OnePlus 9 Pro – from £498
Until recently, the OnePlus 9 was the firm’s top-end phone, available in regular and Pro forms. Flagship-busting specs include a quad rear camera setup and premium Snapdragon silicon. The OnePlus 9 Pro originally went on sale for £829, but during the Prime Early Access Sale you can pick one up from Amazon UK for £498 – a 40% saving. That’s also the biggest price drop we’ve ever seen for this phone, eclipsing July’s Prime Day discounts.
We awarded the OnePlus 9 Pro five stars, saying it has “the best camera array of any OnePlus phone, with image quality to challenge the best out there, day or night”. The firm’s partnership with Hasselblad really paid off, and while battery life may not be the best around, it has the performance and style we’ve come to expect from a top-end OnePlus handset.
OnePlus 9 – from £390
The vanilla OnePlus 9 was a slight step down from the pro on the materials front, swapping glass for plastic, but it otherwise kept most of the same great hardware. The entry variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage launched in the UK at £629, but has been slashed down to £390 – that’s 38% off the original RRP and 24% off Amazon’s non-deal price of £499. You can also bag a discount on the step-up version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It’s on sale for £499 – a 32% reduction over the original £729 launch price.
We gave the OnePlus 9 four stars, saying that while it wasn’t the slam dunk we’d seen with the OnePlus 9 Pro, the lower price made it just as appealing as ever. Superb fast charging, excellent performance and a high quality screen were all appreciated, and they’re even more of a bargain with this limited-time price cut.
OnePlus 10 Pro – from £627
Perhaps last year’s phone isn’t what you’re looking for. If it’s new or nothing, you’d best check out the OnePlus 10 Pro, which has received a more modest – but still very welcome – discount.
The 8GB RAM/128GB storage version has seen a £172 price cut, down from £799 to £627, a 22% dip. For slicker multitasking and extra room for apps and files, the 12GB RAM/256GB handset can be had for £749, down from the original £899 RRP – a 17% saving.
We had to wait a little longer than usual to get our hands on the OnePlus 10 Pro, which debuted in China months before it went on sale here in the UK. We decided it was worth the wait in our five star review, saying the “killer combo of specs and price point hit a home run” and that it “runs the Google Pixel 6 Pro really close if you want to spend somewhere in the £800-900 bracket”.
OnePlus Nord 10T – from £529
It’s not just the firm’s mainstream models that have been given some tasty discounts, either. The sub-flagship OnePlus Nord 10T only launched in August, yet it’s also the subject of some small reductions in the Prime Early Access Sale.
The base edition with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage launched in the UK at £629, but can be had at the reduced price of £529 during the Early Access sale – a saving of 16%. Or if you want more performance, you can pick up the version with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for £629, a small but useful discount of 14% against RRP.
Competition has never been hotter among mid-tier mobiles, but our four-star review still found that the OnePlus Nord 10T offered a huge amount for the money. With a sizeable battery, fast-charging smarts and the latest Snapdragon hardware, it has features that “take it ahead in the specs race” – even if its camera capabilities aren’t top-drawer.
OnePlus Nord 2 – from £289
The more wallet-friendly Nord line-up can also be picked up for less right now, with the OnePlus Nord 2 5G seeing the biggest reductions.
The 8GB RAM / 128GB storage model officially retails for £399, but right now it’s on sale for £289 – a hefty 28% reduction. You can also step up to the 12GB RAM / 256GB option for £349 – that’s 25% less than the usual £469 RRP.
“For the most part, OnePlus has nailed everything with the Nord 2,” we said of the phone in our four star review. “It makes Android sing, dancing through games that trip up rivals, while its camera can take great photos, day or night.” It was a genuinely tempting alternative to the pricier OnePlus 9, and even more so now it’s been discounted further.
OnePlus Nord 2T – from £330
The newer OnePlus Nord 2T 5G brought faster charging, a refreshed design and quicker CPU to the mix as recently as May this year, but has also been given a cheeky price cut so as not to feel left out.
The regular version, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, is on sale for £330 – that’s an 8% saving over the usual £369 asking price. If you need more memory and storage, the 12GB/256GB model can be picked up for £430 – an 8% reduction compared to the £469 RRP.
The Nord 2T provides some welcome mid-range refreshment amongst a growing stack of sub-£400 rivals. It remains to be seen how well it stacks up against the incoming Google Pixel 6a and Nothing Phone 1, but if you aren’t prepared to wait, this week’s price cut could seal the deal.
OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite – from £196
Finally, the most affordable model in the OnePlus line-up gets a price cut to bring it beneath the £200 barrier. The Nord CE 2 Lite gets 6GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board storage. It cost £279 at launch, but right now Amazon’s offering a 30% saving, bringing the price down to £196. That puts it firmly in cheap phone territory.
