One of the best mobiles I have used since the old Oneplus one and Oneplus 3 days. Even after almost 1.5 yrs there is no lag in software/hardware support. Hope they launch a poco f2 for me to upgrade.

You will only appreciate these phone if you are one of those get used to Xiaomi Mi3/Mi4 and Oneplus One/Two era of smartphone that is really cheap in price, but not compromise on the inner part where it is on par with flagship smartphone.
This smartphone pay homage to these flagship killer smartphone.
So, if you are someone that is look for saving money, definitely picking this smartphone is a no brainer if it is officially sold at your country.
But, on a realistic notes, there will be compromise on something if compared to those real flagship smartphone. So, please don't expect everything will be good on this smartphone. But of course, it nonetheless offer a choice for user to pick up a phone, that is not fancy, but very cheap in price, and is actually having a SD845 processor.

Overall, a great device to have. Initially I want to use my F1 as secondary device, but now it is my only device. Regards.

Do you know that sometimes you have to set your region to another country to have face unlock option enabled?

Mine got screen retention after 9 months of use. Pocophone did cut corners on the LCD thats why a lot of users complain and have their phones taken to the service center for lcd replacement.

I think that is the real reason why they stop selling pocophone on Mi stores while the demand is still very high. I know xiaomi fans will hate this but I am a fan and my sister as well. But the pocophone has too many defects mostly LCD problems.

Go for Nova 5t. I have tried it and its a bit faster than the pocophone. And the camera quality is very good. New Realme phones offer quite a good spec for its price. And also take into consideration the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Note 10 and K30

I want to buy Poco f1 in 15k but I'm afraid of touch heat and screen bleeding issues. I just want the phone to play pubg and cod. No preference for camera.
I read many reviews about Amazon selling used phones as new, of course they'll be bad.
Should I but it from offline mi store?

In fact, I have bought it as a secondary device for gaming, but now I am so impressed that I have replaced my Galaxy. Thinking to buy in next summer another mi Note 8 for camera.

Depending on which games you're playing on a full charge, battery can last a good 8 hours at least of continuous play of something like Candy Crush or similar or can do like a solid 3-4 hours playing Call of Duty. Phone does tend to heat up quite a bit, as does any phone, but nothing to be worried about and doesn't affect performance.

I need some advice,

I like to play games and taking picture
In my daily basis I spend about 2-4 hours to play them
I dont care about design, speaker, and UI

Am I must try this?

  • Your ordinary person

Having it a week after the 1st day release

Im lucky as my device didn't have any ghost/backlight/delayed touch problem cuz i buy it offline

6/128 @$290 variant still handle every day/gaming task easily, keep in mind that this is 2018 device, which is great. And cheap as heck from the performance ratio.

Camera is decent, i can't really tell you about the camera since i don't know what to judge, same goes to every camera ever. As long as it's similar to what i see with my own eyes, then it's good.

Performance, gaming for 4hrs @70%brigthness and max setting available on the game is pretty good, left me with 15% left (with sim card connection). Battery got heat up to 43°C as excpected but the CPU is staying at 35-43°C the entire gaming sessions. You know whos to blame.
I use device HW/Antutu/heat gun to check the temp, i can't buy a thermal imagining camera tho its expensive.

Im @ Singapore with temp around 29-36°C.

The screen is decent, nothing special from it, if you want a crisp display then go with AMOLED display.

Notch is pretty big, but i couldn't care less about it. Fun fact the notch is like a face (o-O), and i LOVE it🤣🤣.

Speaker is stereo.....kinda, why? The earpiece part is only deliver about 10-20% total volume and no BASS whatsoever, only treble, but it's there. Better than nothing.

Dual sim or 1 sim 1 sd card, your choice. If you want all of them then you need to look else where.

Fast charge capable as expected.

Design is nothing special, plastic after all. But i like the "sleeper" Phone if you know what i mean.

It's a good phone on it's time and probably still till today, you can still buy it and worth your money as they are getting cheaper. It's and kinda old device but if you are the type who want a cheap phone to handle everything you throw at it like i am + don't care of even want a non-eye catching device as i am, then this is still up on the buy list.

If you are a fashion type then..... WTF are you doing here???

Having this phone for about 1+year (October 2018 is when i bought it).

My thoughts:
1. Performance is still blazing fast even after a year, and still capable toe to toe with the newer device which is great already.

2. Extended playing time (~3hrs is my max play time at a time before my eyes start to get really tired, this goes with TV/laptop as well which is suck)

BK10, 30 Dec 2019i planned to buy a new phone but i cant decide whats phone ... morego for F1, it's cameras are pretty good. I am Playing COD Mobile on it and it looks damn good.
