    no NFC

    Wow, in 2020?

    Very similar spec to Pocophone F1, with smaller screen & no headphone jack, but better CPU/GPU performance, Great budget gaming phone if you can live without high res screen and NFC.

      Never heard of this before, how many sub brands does Xiaomi have ?

      • +3 votes

        Many.

        Xioami is an umbrella brand which has financial interests in a ridiculous number of sub-brands. This is how there's a Xiaomi version of virtually every product out there.

        •  

          Redmi, and blackshark are xioami brands, but xioami has released redmi to operate independently, and blackshark is xioami way to tackle the mobile sector like Asus is doing.

            @Shibbito: To be more accurate Redmi is a sub-brand of Xiaomi, while Blackshark became independent in 2019 and Poco in 2020.

              @Clear: I started to notice HuaWei(Honor), BBK Electronics(OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Vivo, IQoo), XiaoMi(RedMi, Poco, Blackshark) really saturating the market with so many different options and price range. This strategy is entirely different with Apple where there's 1 brand and 2-3 models released every year.

          Technically they OEM the sub-brands from smaller manufacturers around the country that can demonstrate quality and quantity. That's how they have such a huge range of products now outside of just phones..

      Poco F1 was IPS if I recall. AMOLED much better.

    •  

      Also, AMOLED vs IPS

      F1 uses 845 while this is 855. A good deal I must say.

    Impressive price for an excellent phone. Just need a good deal for the controllers to go with it.

  •  

    That's a Good price, but black shark 4 will be out soon.

    I'd get a Asus Rog 2, the cpu over locked to 2.96gh, and has plethora of attachments but just under $970 it's still easy to see why this becomes a better deal.

    I'd settle on this black shark 3 or pocof2, if Rog 2 not for you.

      I'd settle on this black shark 3 or pocof2, if Rog 2 not for you.

      You do realize that they are all at least us$200 (Poco 2) compare to this deal?

      •  

        Yeah I do, but I'm Looking at a variety of conditions each phone could exist in.

        Pocof series phone shines bright on price and specs, but the king goes to Asus Rog series phones as the leader on phones in all calibres.

        The black shark series phones (while cheaper to repair then the Asus Rog series phones that can cost upwards of $800 to repair) however if a 855 series CPU interests you then buy one.

      Blackshark 4 release soon??? Where did u get that from? 3 just came out 2 months ago.

      If you only look at Antutu score than they are very close but we all know that live is not that simple.

      Iphone 11 while cost three times the price of this phone. It has an excellent camera system and a very fast system when running IOS 13. Then there is other stuff that our resident Apple fanboy team cam fill in.

      At the end one has to justify if the better of iphone 11 is worth three time the asking price? For me its a definitely no.

    • +1 vote

      Something to keep in mind when comparing the two is aftersales support. With the iPhone if you have issues you can walk into any Apple store and walk out with a replacement, wheras this would effectively have no warranty. Plus i'd guess it's much easier to get an iPhone 11 screen replaced than this. That being said, you could break this and buy a new one for the price of an iPhone 11 haha.

    I saw the on kimovil this morning and was thinking about posting but don't want to post a thread that can potentially turn into a political debate, or mock by local warranty troll.

    The is a remarkable deal. According to Kimovil, the is is the only 128G phone currently going for under US$300 but break the Antutu 400000 mark. It has Amoled and B28 (for the B28 addicts). Only thing missing is wide angle and NFC. Can't complain at this price.

    Also be aware the usual possible pitfall of Aliexpress with no paypal and effectively zero purchase protection. Finally let me do it for the local warranty troll. If your phone fails, good luck with warranty!!

    Over all for this price I think it a great deal and give how low the price is, its worth a punt. May be use a credit card that will assist you with charge back if the phone goes south? Or a credit card that give extra warranty with purchase.

      Also be aware the usual possible pitfall of Aliexpress with no paypal and effectively zero purchase protection.

      Coincidentally I received a refund today for a product shipped in February that never arrived. AliExpress are less helpful for accounts that have minimal spending and thus a lower level of membership.

        I've found AliExpress to be simply awful.

        1st attempted order: there was a $5 voucher that AliExpress described as working on everything, yet it didn't work on what I wanted to buy, so I gave up.
        2nd order: Ordered successfully, then 2 days later got "This order has been closed due to potential security reason", and my order was simply deleted. WTF?!
        3rd order: Ordered, received, but wasn't particularly good product: was the Rock phone mount, kept falling off the car phone vent, but kept it as semi useful.
        4th order: ordered, received, a Nohon replacement mobile phone battery, but it was a completely garbage product, had same or even less battery life than the 2 year old battery it replaced. Opened a dispute, No resolution, dispute automatically closed, no explanation, no recourse, no refund. Awful.
        5th order: Xiaomi Mi Band 4. Ordered, received, this one was great, zero regrets, good deal.
        6th order: Belt. Ordered, received, but too small, so gave it away.
        7th order: Car phone holder: to replace the 3rd order. Ordered, received, but was wrong for my car vents. Reread the listing and realized it said this in the fine details of the listing… but seriously, who's got the time to read every all the details of a listing? Gave this one away as could not stand to deal with AliExpress returns process.
        8th order: A car phone holder, to replace the 3rd and 7th orders. Ordered, received, albeit took 2 months to get here (a month later than expected) due to covid. Seem fairly decent though.

        And at all times, I only ordered from stores with excellent feedback.

        So 2 arrived and good and useful and functional products out of 8 orders. Honestly, AliExpress is the worst marketplace, the one I'd avoid if at all possible, and will only use when there's no decent alternative. Personally, I wouldn't buy anything worth more than about $25 from AliExpress, only if I was happy to wait up to 2 months for it to arrive, I'd have very low expectations of any purchase from there, and I'd only buy if I was happy with zero warranty. None of which sounds like a good fit for buying a phone. Just my $0.02, ignore if you wish.

          Funny how you keep going back for it.

          You purchase cheap items you're likely to get crap products. Hence why the Xiaomi Mi Band is a good comparison compared to the Rock phone holder that's basically a generic product with a logo slapped on.

          I buy plenty of branded items (like Xiaomi) and they're great.

      •  

        Had 3 refunds in last 5 years, 1 on Alibaba (dodgy ass 16gig micro Sims) and 4 other on Ali Xpress while none on Amazon, but countless from local stores in Australia.

        While Australia and America have some issues dealing with china, Alibaba actually cares more about their customers then the Chinese government does.

      For almost exactly us$200 you get SD865, Quad camera, NFC, 5G and WIFI AX.

      on one hand, one can argue that extra for us$200 is a bargain, but I am sure a lot of people these days will rather save that $200 and just go without those extra.

    Guys, something to note about.

    When there's phone deals like this for Xiaomi (or any other Android phone for that matter), always check on the XDA Forums and just have a bit of a search around (like looking for feedbacks and comments and just general discussion about the phone).

    Gives you an understanding of it's lifetime for the next few years, and whether it'll survive through updates (community and officially). For this phone, almost nothing on XDA Forums support it (that means no custom ROMs or anything) so community-wise the support is dead for this phone. Your best bet is Xiaomi updates this phone for the next 2-3 years at most, but they are a Chinese company who is very inconsistent with updates and security issues, and sometimes they outright cancel a brand if it doesn't do well (like the Mi Mix series).

    Still a great phone, but something to note about if you want it to be future proof. If you are a person that goes for 1 year = 1 phone then this should be okay with you.

      Why is all android thread in OZB has to have someone going on about issues that everyday user don't care…

      You go ask people around and I swear most of them don't know and don't care about XDA nor custom rom. There are data that shows less than 1% of Android phones is rooted.

      Oh Xiaomi is also one of the company that are quite good with major updates, at least three sometimes even more.

      • +5 votes

        Is definitely something I considered when picking up mi 9t. Massive community and custom ROMs give you options if you feel the stock software is not up to par. MIUI is ok but still buggy compared to Samsung, this is understable given the cheap price. In my personal experience right now I'm waiting for MIUI 12 update because 11 has battery drain issues.

        Dumbing things down and not mentioning these things on a bargain forum is not the way to go, some people here are looking for the overall picture.

        Sub brands, off branches and limited edition don't get update as often. In the second year of the mi max and mi note series, they get updated once every three months for security updates.

      The frequency of update from xiaomi is the best among all Chinese brand phone.

    Mi Max 4??

    No micro SD or headphone jack either.

    Did anyone get one of these?
