    what sort of iphone is that?

    Um, it’s a chow mee poke-o phone.

  • +31 votes

    No NFC. You have to walk around paying for things with cash or card like a peasant

    • +46 votes

      Look at Mr. Moneybags here actually having money leftover after buying his phone.

    • -5 votes

      I disable NFC any how as it's a security risk like having your credit card in a wallet without any RFID protection. You could have your payment details hacked in public. e.g. drive by NFC back. NFC was not designed for security.

    Nice find OP, i have purchased LG30+ otherwise this was on my wish list.

  • +5 votes

    Awesome phone, I flashed Lineage OS and it runs like a beast. Better than a Pixel 3 and some of the higher end phones out there, and for a price like this you can't really go wrong with buying one.

    One bad thing is that it doesn't have NFC, which I kind of take it as a positive because I probably won't spend more than what I need. I think it's just the NFC feature away from being a perfect phone imo.

    •  

      Was it easy to flash? I'm getting mine this week and wanting to flash it too.

      • +1 vote

        Yeah, really easy tbh. Same procedure as the last few Xiaomi phone flashing as well. Just remember to flash the latest firmware to not get any bootloops and follow the instructions properly in the XDA threads.

    •  

      Does Lineage OS mean similar to Android One?

      • +4 votes

        Pretty much, but Android One is just officially provided by Google while Lineage OS is provided by another set of individuals who contribute to the project everyday.

        The best thing about Lineage OS is that you can choose what Google Apps you want to have preinstalled - do you just want to have the required features + play store? go right ahead! Do you want to have every single Google App in existence? That's all good!

        Also Lineage OS, like Google, once confirmed official is usually updated weekly or nightly depending on how they go about it. It's very consistent and reliable unlike other custom ROMs.

        People just don't like to flash Lineage OS a lot because of the gruesome process that some of them go through (like unlocking the bootloader, hoping things flash well without issues etc). But once you get the hang of it, it's like second nature.

        •  

          I love Lineage but I'm reluctant to use hacks like Magisk to make Google Pay etc functional.

          •  

            @uk3000: TBH, you would hardly use magisk if you just want to use Google Pay. I flashed Magisk and hid Google Pay and my bank app and after that never touched it again. It's not really a hack as well, we're not trying to tamper with the app, it's just for us to use our bank apps easier.

            And i don't think banks mind either, otherwise they would've found a way to block Magisk by now. It's just there for us to authenticate that we're using the app for our personal needs everyday and not to hack them or anything.

            I think a lot of appreciation goes to the dev who keeps updating it whenever he can, and i think without it custom ROMs wouldn't really have a place to be used for everyday needs.

    •  

      Try Pixel experience ROM. I tried it on my mi5s and don't miss my pixel 2xl.

      •  

        Yeah, Pixel Experience is awesome for people who are coming from a Pixel to this phone. And they were one of the very first ones that had their ROM running smoothly (because Lineage OS and other ROMs did face issues). Also one of the top ROMs that are much easier to flash and forget. Comes with Google Apps as well.

    I would have bought this phone by now if it had NFC. Such a beast!

    just a question about grey import. If something goes wrong with the phone how will they cover with warranty. Will seller cover it?

    What a pity most if not all xiaomi phones have no b28.

    •  

      should blame Telstra and optus picked a non popular band,

      •  

        It was picked for a technical reasons …Europe now also moving to band 28 Taiwan already on band 28 …..

    • +6 votes

      b28 is overrated, I reckon. My wife's nokia has b28 but it doesn't seem that makes a difference in Sydney metro area.

      • +12 votes

        Maybe it makes no difference for 90% people in Aus but sadly I'm the 10%. Upvote if you're the same and let me know I'm not alone :P

      •  

        does in Victoria regional ….it is alife saver in some areas where I go for work.

      •  

        In metro areas you already have towers everywhere so reception is quite good, when you get further away from the city you need more bands

      •  

        I may be wrong, but I think it's the band I need when I travel to the USA (and maybe other places)… all I know is I travel a lot and my phone works whereas my wifes' doesn't.

    good phone. 3 day battery if light-medium user. camera surprisingly good although i think thats all in the software

    •  

      Remember to get the Gcam Mod side-loaded into the phone to get the best of the Poco F1. I think the MIUI camera limits how good the camera can actually be.

      •  

        Only big difference i see is night mode. The camera doesn't have ois so it's limited

        •  

          Very limited but it's sharper than the MIUI imo. MIUI for whatever reason kinda downgrades the camera (maybe not to compete with their higher models) so i tend not to use it (although it is the only one with EIS, so people might need that too if they want some stability when recording).

    Great phone.
    I bought one a month ago and it's been life changing for me. Came from a Nokia 8. So much better. Band 28 who cares makes.

  • +3 votes

    This is a really good deal. I ended up paying $600 for the armoured edition (256GB/8GB) and had to source it from overseas as it wasn't available elsewhere

    •  

      How are you liking that one?

      •  

        It is great for power users.The MIUI may need a bit to get used to but works fine. The camera is ok but the battery life is excellent. The notch is probably the only thing I find really annoying

    • +1 vote

      Where did you find one?? I gave up and went with this one lol

      • +1 vote

        Sourced it from Xiaomi India through a friend. They don't have international shipping and had to wait until he came back from holidays

  •  

    How does this compare to the LG V30 plus?

    I have just bought it but this looks like a pretty decent phone as well for a similar price range!

  •  

    If you watch Netflix this phone cannot watch in HD. Other than that no NFC is no big deal

    Pay a bit more for the other oneplus 6 deal

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/439425

    You get NFC, Netflix HD and Oxygen OS better camera

    • +2 votes

      On the screen size you cannot really notice that it doesn't do HD.
      As a side note, Optus also includes free 1.5mbit netflix streaming which just so happens to be around the quality that it does play. if I'm on Wi-Fi, well I probably have a 4k TV nearby.

    •  

      $140 or 35% more is hardly what I'd call 'a bit more'. More like pay 1/3rd more for marginal benefit. HD on a screen this size doesn't matter, and you can flash a new OS. All you really lose is NFC.

  •  

    Hows the robustness of the screen glass? Other Xiaomi ive seen are fragile.

    •  

      The screen scratches easily, I do not drop my phones so I will not break it (unless I am unlucky).
      However, the screen scratching easily has actually been a blessing in disguise at it pushed me to discover "ringke dual easy" screen protectors which are a rubberised plastic and don't scratch. The tactility of the screen is much, much improved over glass, especially for playing games with on screen analogue controls.

  •  

    Pacopacomama.

  •  

    Does it use Android One like MiA1 or MiA2? How does it compare with MiA1?

    •  

      No, so much better than MiA1. I used MiA1 and my wife use Pocophone, always borrow her phone to snap a photo if we're together. The performance also excellent, you can get near S9 with half of the price.

    Three of these or one Galaxy S10?

    it is NOT water / dust resistant at all.Given the fact most of others are, rather risky buy. Otherwise great value for money… 6 GB of ram vs 3 in latest iPhones… LOL
