Dimensity 800 is a fine chip, but not at that price.

Im not talking about the price of the phone, it could be a nova8 with K985 and still would be better. im just pointing out the SoC, because D1000+ and K990 are direct competitor.

This is for the Chinese market where Poco doesn't have any phones available. The new honor phones are not very good value for money alright though
