ishreal, 25 May 2021Illogical commentWell you are the one who made an illogical comment. Not everyone, including myself, likes to keep files inside the internal storage no matter how fast the UFS storage is. Also, you don't use a microSD card to run Android.

Aierlan, 25 May 2021Fair enough. Take your point. This one is a little bit expe... moreYeah, we might never know what he meant, but its probably not for chinese market people, i dont think they even visit gsmarena or other english sites.

Edge s seems like the much better deal then.

Mediatek sux, 25 May 2021Thats what he is trying to say i guess? No need to import t... moreFair enough. Take your point. This one is a little bit expensive anyway with something like the Motorola edge s now available for only 1,799rmb with similar specs

Aierlan, 25 May 2021He's saying the Poco is already $100 cheaper though so... moreThats what he is trying to say i guess? No need to import this since poco is already available.

And its $100 cheaper in his country, doesnt mean its like that everywhere.

Mediatek sux, 25 May 2021Its not like its impossible to import a china only device. ... moreHe's saying the Poco is already $100 cheaper though so why in the world would anyone consider going to the hassle of importing a device with similar specs (arguably worse specs) than a device that is locally available for cheaper (even before you consider taxes and postage costs)

Aierlan, 25 May 2021That was kind of my point. No point in comparing the price ... moreIts not like its impossible to import a china only device. For the chinese, there's the k40. I assume the guy's comment is directed at global market, since poco doesnt sell in china.

Mediatek sux, 24 May 2021Poco f3 and redmi k40 is the same thing.That was kind of my point. No point in comparing the price of a Chinese model with the price of an international model in a foreign market as the Chinese model will only be officially sold in China and the international model can't be officially bought in China. Therefore, it makes far more sense to compare it with the k40 or other phones around the same price that are available in China.

beep bop boop, 24 May 2021honestly i think they are using a low end LCD in the lite (... moreIf Vivo gives AMOLED 144Hz for the standard Neo5 and gives LCD 120Hz for the Neo5 Lite, that would make perfect sense. But a Lite version with an LCD screen that has a higher screen refresh rate? I can't really see the logic of that.

YUKI93, 24 May 2021Wait a minute... the standard variant has an AMOLED screen ... morehonestly i think they are using a low end LCD in the lite (kinda self explanatory)

ishreal, 24 May 2021MicroSD storage is slower than ufs so that's an irrele... moreIllogical argument

ishreal, 24 May 2021MicroSD storage is slower than ufs so that's an irrele... moreYou don't install Android OS inside the microSD card, you only store files in it. Also, I don't keep all my files inside the internal storage. Makes it super useful when I'm changing phones.

Wait a minute... the standard variant has an AMOLED screen with 120Hz whereas this more affordable Lite variant has an LCD screen with a 144Hz refresh rate? Seeing how LCD is still a popular choice in terms of battery life, I may incline to pick the Lite version.

Aierlan, 24 May 2021This is a China model. The Poco f3 is not available in Chin... morePoco f3 and redmi k40 is the same thing.

Anders, 24 May 2021No micro SD, no buyMicroSD storage is slower than ufs so that's an irrelevant feature.

No micro SD, no buy

True also, that the average salaries in China and India are far lower than something like Europe or North America. So maybe that's why they always get the good stuff (nice phones at lower prices).
At least I live in Europe, is a little better than US (regarding the phones options). And no, I don't want to import phones from China on my own.
