Anonymous, 17 Nov 2021There's NO proximity sensor, and that's the problem. Does this problem exsist in xiaomi note 10 pro max ?

This commonly happens on LED screens. You shouldn't turn your screen brightness to max all the time, let your phone standby on the same screen for an extended period of time.

Background apps can still drain your phone even your phone is locked. Make sure to close all apps in the recent apps. All phones will drain overnight unless you power off.

MIUI is generally is not great. It's kinda unfair to compare MIUI to other ROM because it's just bad. But it has its pros.

Poco F3 emphasizes performance over camera and software. A31 and J7 Prime's chipset is nothing compared to SD870 5G

Poco F3 was fine for a few days after I got it, battery was great, screen was too, and the processor is fantastic. After a week of usage, the screen started to have a YELLOW TINT(anyone knows hot to fix it?), my Oppo A31 screen is brighter compared to F3 which Idk why, the battery drained around 15% in 5 hours time when I left my phone off(WiFi was turned off) and went to sleep, gotta admit as a long term Samsung smartphone user, I found out that MIUI is far away compared to One UI. I strongly suggest for those who value the camera, u guys may opt for Samsung smartphones. My Oppo A31 captures better picture in terms of coloration. I do really hope the SOFTWARE could be IMPROVED. I will still prefer the UI on my Galaxy J7 Prime, no offense to Poco. It's just my personal opinions.

Having this POCO F3 since last may, i never doubted buying this. Battery, display, connectivity and its processor. It gives everything to but the camera, i dont want to say anymore. Im just satisfied having this one on my everyday use.

If you swipe down for control centre (new one) you can just swipe from left to right to get notifications you don't have to just swipe from upper left corner (you can do this ever way).

The SD720G is still working well for me after 4 months of use. Camera and battery life are the major improvements over my previous main LG V35. My plan now is to replace the Mi 9T with something more powerful and not break the bank like Poco F3 or Oneplus 8T if I can find a good condition used one. Samsung S20 is out of question since only Exynos version is available here.

Anonymous, 20 Nov 2021Too bad these greedy orgs remove valuable features like 3.5... moreI do agree but xiaomi is not the only company doing this. Besides soem company like Samsung maybe are going to remove it even from thier budget phones. As long as thye are in midrange its still okay. But u can't get flagships if u want 3.5mm Jack or sd card.

Anonymous, 19 Nov 2021I know Realme offers good value but I just don't have ... moreMan 210 for a52 is killer deal. Even better than poco f3. But then again the sd 720g is still quite weak even at that price point.

Suselam, 21 Nov 2021I found poco f3 and realme gt almost at the same price! Ca... moreHonestly the realme gt has better gaming perfomance and faster charging but poco f3 isn't no slouch either in both of these sections. Maybe the main cam is better on realme but uw cam is mostly same and macro cam is better on poco f3 even though barely anyone uses them. Overall id say u can find the poco f3 for even cheaper if I found an realme gt for around 300 euro. But I'd say realme gt if u can't find an poco f3 for cheaper. Also realme gt has the cool yellow leather option.
