    Pretty top price tbh. I got mine from Kogan for like $500 with some warranty (I should've waited a bit though) and it's probably the best phone I've had so far. Flashed Lineage OS and runs like a well-oiled machine.

    I wish it had NFC because it would've been my ultimate phone if it did have NFC, and the Poco F2 will be an insta-buy for me if they keep all these features + smaller notch + NFC as well.

      I felt the same way but I only started using NFC and it's really convenient not having to carry my wallet around. I can also use a normal phone case instead of a wallet case.

          Not at my age nah I guess learners is something but I don't need to carry that when I'm not gonna drive.

          if your in NSW don't really need drivers license (well in some suburbs, soon to be state wide)
          https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/campaign/digital-driver-licen...

          … comeon VIC get your act together.

          Medicare typically a photo of it can do in most cases, all they really need in the number most of the time, same with organ donor, when i did mine they said you dont need to keep the card with you're on the register (which is good since it was a crappy low quality card anyway it degrades too quickly)

          Only issue of course is with everything on you're phone its hard to identify you, android needs to get inbuilt emergency info function like iPhone does.

      @SDF05, do you lose any functionality compared with stock ROM if you flash Lineage OS? Do you receive automatic security updates? Thanks.

      •  

        Functionality wise i would say the Stock Camera has some features that the modded Gcam can't get (this is like EIS and stuff which is great on the Stock Camera) but you can also get the Stock Camera (MIUI Camera app) on custom ROMs as well now.

        But honestly don't see any features being lost since the firmware is constantly getting updated (i think MIUI just got Wideline support L1 iirc for Netflix and stuff which is easy to flash then you can flash back to LOS or Pixel etc). And much cleaner and faster than MIUI. It's hard to get used to MIUI since i'm using custom ROMs these days so it will be sad for me when Xiaomi closes the door on unlocked bootloaders and stuff (hopefully they don't).

    Great phone, great price, thanks OP. I pulled the trigger after wanting one for ages.

    (Also, it's been 5 minutes and not a single mouth-breather has mentioned band28 or NFC yet - you guys are slipping…).

    Pay the extra ~$25 for the 128gb version IMO.

    No NFC.

    No reliable warranty, right? Need a phone for the missus but I'm thinking something with warranty would be better.

    Which cpu does this have?

    Seller with 97.8% feedback isn't great over 23000 sales.. majority of the complaints are that they sell possibly used items and have to be shipped from China instead of advertised as locally available.

    •  

      I bought a phone from them. They said they ran out of stock in Australia, so they shipped it from China using FedEx. It arrived within 10 days, so it's not too bad. The good thing is that I didn't have to pay GST.

    Bought one 128gb one on last deal from the same seller. Apart from a bit slow shipping cannot complain about the seller. Took 4 days to send. the phone is super fast. Will flash it to lineage soon.

    Seriously can someone please tell me if it has b28? Will pull the trigger if so.

      are you joking?

      this has been on Ozbargain so many times its not funny and it always gets a post on how it does not have B28 or NFC….

        Xiaomi M9 global version has b28 while its standard version doesn't. This one is global version. Now you know why I asked?

    Anything that is NOT Apple deserves an upvote. It deserves another upvote for having good specs at a modest price, a cellphone for the proletariat rather than the chardonnay swilling elite who purchase a $2000 phone every year.

    i use an iphone. i wanted to get another good cheap phone to play games on like pokemon. will this be a good choice, i don't know much about anything that isn't apple.

    While the appeal of a Snapdragon 845 phone for $400 is undeniable, this phone, with its lack of band 28, NFC and (until recently at least) the widevine DRM protocol, is a bit of a mirage.

    The average aussie who wants a Snapdragon 845 would be much better off snapping up a sub-$600 LG G7 (which are becoming more and more common).

    The Pocophone also has a huge chin and ugly rounded corners which the G7 mostly avoids.
