As i read out of the mi and poco site that the phone come with 8 and 12GB ram and also have idle rom for 7GB so you can get up to 19GB ram. So the 8GB ram version then go to 15GB

Even tough it's really confusing for me as the digital ram

      Anonymous, 24 Aug 2023Wy you not read all comment mean? This man just put a que... moreHe said the camera is trash on the F5 but wants to get good camera phone and then shows some one and half year old Realme phone that have it's good camera and SD 8 Gen 1 in it that is also good enough for gaming. But he wants all of that in the 400 dollar range. So use your brain and think about it on your own. There are no good camera phones in 400 dollars range with high performance also. Poco is a brand that makes phones for performance as priority number 1 and camera is decent middle class. I own the F5 and i can give advice to people on that phone from my own experience with it. But you cant have good camera phone and have good performance too for 400 euro if the phone is not at least 2-3 years old but by then the camera is already middle class and performance is also top of the middle class.

      In 400 dollar range you can only pick one and that is good camera phone and middle class performance or good performance and not so good camera

          Anonymous, 23 Aug 2023What you suggest and why? Poco F5 12/256 or used Realme GT ... morePoco f5 man. If you are confused try to watch GsmArena reviews for these phones. I just watch them and i can sai GT2 pro its low performance for an snapdragon 8+ gen 1 phone. In AnTuTu v9 Poco f5 have 930000 points and Realme GT2 pro have 960000, in Geekbenck Poco f5 beats Gt2 and f5 have more fps in benckmarks. Poco f5 have much good battery life. Poco have an better screen. Becouse f5 has been launched with Android 13 and Gt2 with Android 12, Poco have one more year of software updates becouse Gt2 used one of them software updates for update to Android 13. Poco have much low overheating and better stability. About cameras in GsmArena review they said that Poco f5 cameras are good for this price except night mode. If you can buy an new Poco you shoud buy it especialy when you can buy 12GB RAM version and you actualy have 7GB of digitaly RAM and thats mean 19GB( you need to motive that digitaly RAM are slower than usualy RAM). I hope that i help you with this comment :)

Poco F5 12/256 or used Realme GT ... moreIf the camera is not good enough for you and you want a good camera then why are you even here asking this question ? Go with the 1.5 years old Realme then. If that has the better camera and you get 2 pixel better quality with it.

            Wanting to get a flagship best of the market camera on a phone and then look at the 400 price range. I would suggest you print a new brain for your self that actually works

I've also tried debloating all of the stuff and it's still the same. Still the best value for money for performance but it's not without its rather large flaws software wise.

              Thanks though!

                  What you suggest and why? Poco F5 12/256 or used Realme GT 2 Pro?? The camera on Poco F5 is below average to be honest, overall power Poco is better but I'm very confused, what someone suggest in the 400$ range??

                      I have with me poco f5 for the last 3 months. I have had issues like whatsApp videos not been able to fast forward or reverse. One had to watch the full video and couldn't skim through it. After lot's of interaction with WhatsApp team & poco f5 team it was decided that the software of miui may need to be reinstalled, but I would loose all data. Fortunately after a month an upgrade to the software came on the mobile and the problem was resolved. Now for last one month some woosh sound comes from the mobile at any given time 5/6 times in a day. I have virtually tried everything from switching off notifications but been unable to pin it to any single thing. Apart from these issues so far the mobile processor is good, camera is good, they could have given more functions to it, sound is quite loud but a bit shrill.

                        Anonymous, 20 Aug 2023Anybody have vibrations from back of phone when playing sound?That is not an issue because phones with dual stero speakers have a channel from the top to bottom usually for audio balance and premium phones manages it's speakers properly so it's not needed but in mid range it is used
                        That what causes the vibration

                          hmm, 21 Aug 2023I dont think it's the screen hz issue on your battery ... moreNope. Changing it to 60Hz reduced the heating and drain, I tried it and it doubled my battery life. I only use the 120Hz when a game supports a high refresh rate now. the 120 Hz activates both in Browser and FB so changing it to 60Hz really helped. Video Recording at the Highest Settings for several minutes does heat it up (like every phone ever). You can confirm it with the monitor tools inside the phone and a thermal monitoring device. What's good about is the temperature difference internally and externally isn't as high due to it's large cooling system unlike other phones which have high internal temperature and low outside temperature.

                            Hello
                            I need help. Last Saturday I had my POCO F5 film my drive home, but at the end of the trip it only made a video of about two and a half minutes and I wanted to have the complete video of the trip about 20 minutes. is there any setting to shoot as long as i want?

                              Kurokaze, 20 Aug 2023I don't know about the 8GB but the battery on my 12GB ... moreI dont think it's the screen hz issue on your battery draining issue.
                              It's probably your screen addiction issue why your battery drains a lot.

                              Also why the heck you need a phone cooler for video recording ?
                              I cant imagine what does the phone do on just video recording on high res or what ever.

                              Gaming is different as the game is software that needs to create texture that you can see on the screen and do it in high frames per second rate. Also games use internet so the modem needs to work more. There are lots of things that take more power on games to make heat then there is for filming something.
