Poco F3 review

Just don't see it being worth the upgrade compared to the F2 Pro:

> No 3.5mm jack
> No notification LED
> Punch hole in the screen
> Almost identical CPU
> Lower resolution main and ultra-wide CAMs
> Can't record in 8K
> Smaller battery

Literally only upgrade is the dual speakers and the screen, and even then the latter has a hole in it.

The phrase where typical average nits is mentioned does not really emphasize that the measured value is quite a bit less than the 900 marketed by Poco. As such, it is a very slight negative. Unless this 700 reading is incorrect? Are there more reviews which have tested the average nits already, because i cant really find them.

what? no gaming benchmarks?! this is poor value vs. the X3 unless one is gaming night and day. Ideally, this should be an X3 with that Snapdragon 870 and charge $50-70 on top of the X3.

GeekBench is the finest example. Claims to be cross platform and gives the iPhones scores higher than some desktop CPUs yet it fails to showcase that kind of raw performance in the real world.
Running on iOS doesn't help either as there is no app or features to take advantage of it.

The ROG 3 with Snapdragon 865 already beat the iPhone 12 pro Max while having half the single core performance and 2/3rd of the multi core performance in real world speed tests.
A14 is essentially reduced to being a paper champ on GeekBench. In real world, it is far from the champ and Antutu confirms and exposes this very fact.

Got mine today... All I can say is WOW!!! Poco has done it again!

Coz he is the only one who accused me of owning One Plus 8 pro, some other guys think I am using Find X2 pro just because I am praising it. I have got my hands on all flagships from 2020 but I haven't used them as a daily driver. I am using Galaxy S10+ from 2019. Wanted to upgrade to Mi 10 ultra but couldn't import it due to the pandemic.
Never blamed Samsung either, Infact I had high hopes for the Exynos chip which was disappointing after the results.

Apparently the display isn't as bright as they say and even gets dimmer during gaming? Is this true?
