My oneplus device came in a chinese box. Anything to worry about?

I can still return it. But looking at other sellers here, they either specify the phone (oneplus 7t 256gb blue) come with an adaptor for europe charge port, either not specify it at all.

 

Looking online, the only difference are supported bands. I found this site on google https://www.frequencycheck.com/carriers/digi-mobil-romania and it seems the HD1900 (my model?) is all good.

 

Also found a guy on yt teaching how to transfer from hydrogen os to oxygen os. I got no ideea what this means. Heres the vid anyway: 

 

 

So, anything i should be worried about? Should i just return the phone?

My OnePlus 3 did too, years ago.  Check the model number, make sure that pertains to your region.  Otherwise there is no issue.

Well OnePlus is from china so maybe the place you bought it from directly got it from the factory

Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

the os video is for changing the android version/variant.

mostly worried about the adapter that shipped with it, it doesnt give me any confidence. Also, dont know if the stuff about bands that i found is true or not, so I am afraind of not being able to use 4g for example. or even 2g/3g whatever.

picture with the adapter:

So there is between hydrogen os and oxygen os?

Also, can i still update my phone (without having to go through the troublesome that guy was doing in the video) to the lates oxygen os?

Just a plug adapter, nothing to worry about, metal on metal, simple.

You can get one in your country, less than $1.

 

Phone from chinese may have a chinese rom, one that doesn't have google inside, so you'll have to install it yourself.

It's pretty tricky, so if you don't have the nerve, i say return the phone and get ones with Oxygen (global) OS.

just entered my sim and started the phone. I added my google account, they asked for it in the settup, those this mean I have google inside? 

Also received a notofications saying "oneplus 7t oxygen os 10.0.11.hd65aa" with an "update now" option. So do i have the global oxygen os?

If it asking for google, then yeah, i think it's already preinstalled by the seller.

By the looks of it you have the Oxygen not Hydrogen.

Check the bands to make sure it supports all the ones for your carrier. I couldn't find them on the sites I usually use to check compatibility, so you'll have to actually look at the phone spec sheet and compare it to the ones your carrier uses. The other issue is that it likely doesn't have Google apps, which IMO makes the phone useless.

 

Really, I'd just return it. Not worth the hassle.

I got a folder called "google" which has gmail, chrome, google, maps, yt and all the good stuff.

What site do you normally use for checking compatibility? The one I used says its all good.

Its not like I wouldnt return the phone, but I've been stuck to using an iphone 7 for a week and I'm really tired of this small ass battery life, + I dont seem to find one here, in my country (romania, europe), which specifies it is the non chinese version. I can find the 128 gb with the non chinese version, but cant seem to find the 256 gb.

no, it only said the charger is non-UE and it comes with an adaptor. I did not bother to read the whole thing before purchasing, so I missed this part.

On the back of the phone there are 2 stickers that mention HD1900, so it is the chinese version. So far running fine, I dont think i'll return it.

You should check the bands though. Chinese rom phones usually have less supported bands.

Update for anyone interested: Talked to a guy from oneplus via live chat and they told me all is good, and there is nothing to worry about. 

 

Also, the macro mode is incredible!
