What?! No HTC fans in the team?!!

Honestly speaking, Xiaomi and Nokia had a better year in terms of Smartphones. PuGB and Fortnite in terms of Games. And ofcourse Memes like these

Clear

Indrawan, 05 Jan 2019How do you know that price is only factor for me? You always jud... moreDo you even understand my replies. Stop assuming, i dont have an iphone xs max i never said anything about owning one and i never said your focus is the price. Again i was only SUGGESTING, im not forcing to to buy the poco f1, im just saying the poco f1 is a wiser buy if you're more inclined with the price because the spec is flagship and the quality may even be better than the more expensive mate 20 pro. Try to understand the my first post that you replied to. At the end of the day you're buying your phone.

Note7 owner, 05 Jan 2019Isn’t it great there are so many options to chose from in 2018.... moreEy, I also have the XR

Indrawan, 05 Jan 2019How do you know that price is only factor for me? You always jud... moreNothing wrong with this words:
Iphone x s max is very xpensive, with the PRICE of the iphone i can buy 2 FLAGSHIP like mate 20 pro n note 9 or pixel...
1. Price
2. Flagship phone specifically that is my concern



Excalibur, 05 Jan 2019Didnt you yourself emphasized that you dont want the iphone beca... moreHow do you know that price is only factor for me? You always judge me about price, you know me than myself lol

I said many times, mate 20 pro n note 9, both phones are flagship phones n more xpensive than pocof1 so if price is only factor for me, i wouldn say mate 20 pro n note 9...

I prefer buy 2 flagship phone than 1 n yes it talks about price but the flagship quality too automaticly even pocof1 is cheaper than mate 20 pro, i will not to buy it

I prefer to find the others flagship phone than buy poco, i will buy flagship phone that have cheaper price than your iphone, i can buy 2 flagship phones

Try to understand it

Indrawan, 05 Jan 2019You didnt like what i said My sentences are not wrong at all I... moreDidnt you yourself emphasized that you dont want the iphone because of the price.... It implied price is a factor for you, so i suggested if price is a factor the poco f1 is a better deal.

No judging, just pure suggestion, no bashing... Try to understand that.

Isn’t it great there are so many options to chose from in 2018. Mines is the iPhone XR, insane battery life. And most importantly Apple’s no nonsense warranty at any Apple store in the world.

Excalibur, 04 Jan 2019Try to understand my comment, i am giving my opinion and your in... moreYou didnt like what i said
My sentences are not wrong at all
I said iphone x s max is very xpensive, i said if i buy the iphone it means i can buy 2 flagship phones like mate 20 pro n note 9 because both phones have great flagship quality but much cheaper than the iphone

Then you judged me that i only concerned about price..you were wrong...you must understand why i chosed mate 20 pro n note 9 it means i didnt talk about price but quality also

You forced me with your argumen about pocof1...no words about pocof1 from me, you use poco to bash me because you think i only concern about pricing



Indrawan, 04 Jan 2019Yes i talked about price but quality also so mate 20 pro n note ... moreTry to understand my comment, i am giving my opinion and your insinuating something i did not say. Did you even understand my last comment...
You like mate 20 pro or note 9, no one can take that away from you.
I said quality is not an issue, all the cited phones including poco f1 have good quality exept perhaps the mate 20 pro that is my opinion.
No bashing done... No judging you about it. Be a little more open minded.

Wait, where is Will's pick?? I want to know Will's best phone :(

Indrawan, 01 Jan 2019My best phone is huawei mate 20 pro... Great camera quality and... moreGreat screen hahahahaha... On YouTube one of the users was just given third mate 20 pro with a defective screen like first two.
Huawei continues sending him bad phones and he's waiting one month to be able to use a mate 20 pro with a proper screen. It's a big joke from Huawei.
