    Thinking of getting a phone between now and end of year, would the price of Poco F1 likely be lower at the end of the year?

    FYI the price is including GST for those who have not checked. It is listed at 349 with a $50 coupon so 299 plus gst of $30 for a total of $329.

    Find out Indian friend who can order from India. It's under $600 for 8GB / 256 GB version

    Estimated shipping time 31 to 39 days. I have found this to be usually correct.

    Tremendous specs.

    BUT at this price I’m just expecting hardware to fail on me sometime. Already in drop tests screen breaks VERY easily and it can’t stream HD Netflix for whatever reasons.

    Too cheap, no deal! I will buy iPhone

  •  

    drop test fails the screen. Not a best phone out there….

  •  

    ~Same price as iPhone 6s

  •  

    Considering buying.
    With phones like this how would I go about getting the screen fixed if it breaks?
    Are most mobile phones places able to fix Xiaomi phones generally?

    •  

      nope. good luck finding a place. you would need to get an Asian friend to take it with them for a visit.

      •  

        This. Have a faulty fingerprint sensor on a Mi A1. Can't find a single repair shop here that can fix it. Older Xiaomis, yes. Newer ones, no.

    •  

      I have an Asus phone with a cracked screen and have found that most repair places will flat out say no to repairs, but some little suburban places will repair if they can find a video on line and +/- if you buy the part (and then you buy the part and they close down and you have to start the search again)..
      Due this phone really not have NFC?

    This phone is like a killer to flagship killer phones.

    • +3 votes

      If it doesn't have NFC, is not waterproof, and can't play Netflix in HD, it adding killing anything.

      •  

        From what I can tell most the flagship killer phones that cost considerably more than this like the oneplus 6 lack waterproofing too. That’s a feature you pay a premium for. Netflix in HD is a Xiaomi issue. NFC would be a huge compromise for some, personally stop using that feature when my watch offered tap to pay. I don’t see anything offering current gen flagship SoC at this price point. Hence why all the hype, and it’s kind of refreshing to see a sub $500 price point phone like this, albeit with trade offs, but expected considering the low price. It reminds me of the nexus 5 era when the Australian dollar was worth ~$1 US.

        •  

          I absolutely get that argument, but for me personally, a flagship killer would have to have those 3 things along with a solid price (ie no more than 50% of what most flagships are going for these days, so $750 or less). So for my personal preference, this isn't a flagship killer or a killer to flagship killer phones. For it to not play Netflix in HD is a big bummer, as is NFC (I use it quite often now for tap to pay, and dont really care for smart watches at this point in time). Waterproofing/water resistance is a must have in my next phone. I am sick of having to hide my phone while talking in the rain (it happens more often than I would have expected).

          @Trishool:

          This phone costs $457according to this deal not the $750 price you are stating, that's a huge difference in price and of coarse if you are willing to spend another ~$300 more you would expect to get more features. This phone main market is to target India, and to take sales from phones like the OP6, I expect it to be very successful at that considering it considerably lower price for the specs on offer. Not everybody value the same features you do, some people are willing to lose out in some areas to save a few hundred dollars. The market will be the one that decides at the end of the day whether this phone is a killer to flagship killer options like the op6.

      It's a nice phone for its price. But you're getting what you pay for. You're missing some things that lots of people find essential. And those people will get those phones over this.
