    Best, 09 May 2023For the fear of deadboot I think I will have to settle for ... moreAbsolutely correct: A lot of POCO X3 & POCO X3 Pro Phones have gone dead within 1-2 years of purchase with no remedy to customers from POCO except the extension of 6 month warranty period. But that was too late and a lot of customers were refused for unnecessary remarks by the service center.
    My POCO X3 too has gone dead since last 18 days and gone out of warranty just 4 months back. I have never faced this type of problem with any of the phone till now even from XIAOMI.

    I searched here at GSMArena for any write up/ article but found nothing.

        The SoC of this phone is very very good, I would not even call it mid-ranger. It's better than 888+ in all aspects and goes neck and neck with 8 gen 1: 7+ gen 2 has faster CPU but slower GPU. But keeping in mind that 8 gen 1 is manufactured by Samsung and has throttling issues, you might even expect similar if not better prolonged gaming experience on 7+ gen 2. For casual usage it's more than enough. Finally fellas we have a properly sized non-gaming phone with almost no downsides, with fast SoC, high refresh rate display and a headphone jack. I hate punch-holes / notches but if it's a large screen I can definitely live with that. Remembering Pocophone F1, I bet side-mounted fingerprint sensor will be much faster in this phone than the under-display one in the Pro variant. They really did a great job in decision making of the hardware of Poco F5, finally my wishes have been granted, though possibly useless macro camera makes me vomit. Poco F5 is more pricey than China's variant I think because of taxes and the Global version has more network bands. China's version might have more bloatware which reduce price but I am not sure on this. So a bit higher price might be reasonably justifiable. If anything, under 400 EUR for this beast is still very cheap compared with what other brands have to offer

                I'll stick with my A52s unless this has 1tb option or expandable storage. Thanks. I knew it was too good to be true.

                      Does it have a led notification light? How about google camera?

                        No... they ruined it. 256gb max storage supported and it can't be expanded. Also missing the IR blaster? Nice. F5 pro sounds cool with 512gb, but it lacks a headphone jack.

                          AmerMA, 09 May 2023$379 for 8-256 $429 for 12-256Cheaper than expected...

                              I saw two LED chips there. Is it all white or dual-tone like in Note 12 Pro?

                                  Should I buy this or the Realme GT Neo 5 SE?

                                    For the fear of deadboot I think I will have to settle for vivo v27. To many issues from my friends who use Poco phone otherwise best phone for the price.

                                      I currently own a Poco F3, I will sell it, although it is a great phone, and I will buy the Poco F5, but I was hoping that it would come with a processor like the Pro version, because the SD 7 + Gen 2 is classified as a mid-range processor, not a flagship, but the numbers of the performance look great, we will soon see the truth about this phone
