    Can people explain the hype around this phone?

    Is it purely about the ram and cpu speed? and not so much about the display?

    as the https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/432969 Nova 3i is very similar and cheaper?

    Thanks.

      Mainly the CPU (Snapdragon 845) which is found in a lot of more expensive flagship phones from the likes of Samsung, Sony etc…

    • +15 votes

      Yes snapdragon 845 chipset.
      It's a great device for gaming or anything really. Camera is also good with the pixel camera apk.

      That other phone sucks compared to this.
      Its also got a large 4000mah battery and very good heat management. Big copper heat pipe inside, tests show it retains CPU clock longer than most other devices tested.

      I bought one.

      It's like a Nexus 5, but better.

        Nexus 5 sucks.
        I will never touch Google or LG phones again!

        The nexus 5 was a great phone in its day. 2013 is a long time ago though for smartphone tech.

        The pocophone is good bang for buck, but yeah I think it was better buying a few months back when they were first released. These phones are due to be superseded by next generation tech. Hence the reduction in price.

      People prefer Xiaomi for their batteries too, huawei has a smaller battery so probably will be hard for it to last a day. Xiaomi phones last a day and a half comfortably usually.

      If this phone stops working within 2 years, do you have to chase this seller
      for 6 months back and forth until you give up from exhaustion?

        One of the sacrifices you make when you opt for bargain price. Go B&M store for warranty convenience.

      Terrible seller. Long delay, dishonest communication. Lies about a warehouse in Australia, goods are shipped from Hong Kong, if you are lucky. Avoid like a plague.

      • +1 vote

        Not surprising it's shipped from Hong Kong considering that's what their location is saying.

      10% Gst applies so it will just be like not paying GST so the actual price would be $428.52

    Camera on this vs iPhone 6s.

    Which would be better?

      The camera can be upgraded to GCAM - literally uses the same sensor as the Pixel 3 :) and we all know that has a brilliant camera. There are also updates to night mode that have been made avail
      this cam will sh!t on the apple cameras

    •  

      iPhone 6s is old now, so you would expect any newer phone even mid tier to offer an improvement. The camera sensors used by Apple were tiny cheaper ones too. The reason the iPhones hold up so well is software. However as someone have pointed out if you use google excellent camera app you can have great results on a phone like the poco.

    Pros:
    Amazing speed
    Headphone Jack
    Expandable Storage
    Stereo Speakers
    Dual Sim
    Surprisingly good LCD panel
    Price

    Negs:
    NFC

    I would have listed missing B28 as a negative, but it honestly hasn't been at all where I live and work. Haven't lost reception once.

    Who is this phone for? Someone who is an android enthusiast. I say this because you really do unlock this phones potential if you dive into custom roms. The support for this phone is insane on xda fourms which is great for its longevity. Furthermore, with the Pixel Experience rom, you get pretty much all the features of the Pixel 3 on a $400 phone. Definitely worth it.

    •  

      NFC and lack of stated water resistance really stopping me from upgrading my S7 which has begun to slow down a lot now. I had a lot of fun before with ROMs on the OnePlus One though.

      •  

        If you don't mind tinkering with google camera ports (they tend to be unstable on Exynos), using LineageOS on S7 really speeds it up and with gcam its basically the same quality. Stock LOS camera is hot garbage though.

    Fantastic phone been using it for a month.
    Great camera, performance and battery life.

    My downside is that all Xiaomi phones tend to have issues with Android Auto.

      What’s the video stability and night pictures like?

      Ever had an iPhone 6s/7?

      Really want to move to android but heard these budget china phones aren’t great for camera/video

      • +1 vote

        this is pretty damn good

      • -4 votes

        iPhones will always have the best camera/video. I got a Redmi Note 5 back in September for $180 USD. Best decision I've made after having iPhones for 7 years. The camera is still great, and considering how much I paid (peanuts compared to an iphone), it would be absolutely nonsensical of me to go back to an iPhone. I've also learnt to like the extra features that come with android.

        The Redmi Note 7 was just released too.

        • +4 votes

          What's with all the downvotes?

          I was saying that iPhones excel when it comes to the camera, but for me, that's pretty much it. Either butthurt iPhone fanboys or butthurt android fanboys. Based on this post being for an android phone, I'm guessing it's the latter, even though I'm saying I prefer an android phone?

      I've still got a Mi5s. Won't be upgrading mine for at least another year. Wife has a Pocophone F1, and I am a bit jealous (better camera and a "smoother" experience), but I do find the Mi5s still games well. The only thing I might consider this year is changing its battery. It does seem to lose its charge a bit quicker these days.

      Dude if you feel your phone is doing you good then don't upgrade. Take it from someone who wastes money on tech they don't need, it's not worth it.

    Can noB28 be a problem at Hunter Valley especially Cessnock?

    I am thinking of this and Huawei Nova3i.

    • +1 vote

      Band 28 improves reception where buildings are blocking radio signals I think. So it improves reception indoors and walking between skyscrapers.

    •  

      I would be more interested in 850MHz 3G at this stage in rural areas, while the 4GX (700MHz/B28) is still being rolled out. However once Telstra has ubiquitous 4GX, then you may have slightly better coverage than NextG.

    • +2 votes

      Really depends, I have Mi6 and since I changed my phone from Nexes5X 2 years ago I cannot get 4G at home sometime, I highly suspect lake of Band28 is the reason. I'm with Optus, if you're with Voda you don't need to worry this.

    • +1 vote

      People always talk about the coverage factor, but there’s also a congestion factor. Having more bands helps out in times when many people are trying to use the net at a tower in your area.

    For anyone doubting this phones camera abilities, watch the below blind test review by MKBHD

      My guess is they send the item from Hong Kong, the location of "Australia" will be a way around the new GST laws

    128gb is a little bit more. It might worth it

      He does not say this is the best camera phone on the market.

    I find Xiaomi has too many phone models. They should streamline most of it.

    • +1 vote

      They already have. The Xiaomi Mi series (e.g. Mi 8, Mi Mix 3 etc.) are the Xiaomi branded flagships. Redmi is the recently split off sub-brand for all budget phones. And finally Poco is another sub-brand of Xiaomi that are more independent and are focusing on high performance bang for buck phones.

      It's just sells better if sellers slap the Xiaomi logo on all Xiaomi sub-brands and investment partners.

    Gonna wait for the Poco F2 and F2 Plus (rumored)

    Pretty much the same price but through a reputable seller.

    Anyone have an links to SAR ratings on this phone?

    Only thing keeping me for buying it.
    Xioami rarely share that kind of info.

  •  

    This phone has no Widevine L1 btw, so no HD streaming via paid services like Netflix n shiz.

    Camera is pretty meh, not waterproof, sound is a bit meh (have to make a hand cup to direct the sound…if you know what i mean).

    Battery life is the bees knees, awesome for gaming, WATERCOOLED, general usage is quick AF.

    Had the phone since Aug/Sep. No issues.
