I purchased the 6gb variant 21/05 and received it 11 days later.
Basic review, phone is spot on for value. I wanted a phone with a HJ and ultra wide angle camera + SD865 chip. Bonus is this phone has IR blaster and I use it daily for our air con, TV that doesn't have a remote and sound system. Never had a phone with an IR blaster and can now appreciate having it. Battery life is great!!! Past two phones, OnePlus 6 (buttery smooth blazing fast!) and S10 5G (never again! Battery life was ordinary and nothing like the snapdragon variants, Bluetooth connection with my car was so so and when I consider that I paid $1000+ for the thing, it bugs the crap outta me).
Not so good things, camera is OK. S10 5G took better videos with the OIS, this only has EIS. When shooting videos, you can't switch from ultra wide to standard etc. Very annoying. Photos decent with light/outdoors. Poco F2 Pro Night photo mode, what a joke.
Little things that are nice (not sure if it’s Android 10 related or POCO software) when you pair a BT headphone, it tells you what codec its using AAC APTX etc. RAM management from a real world day to day use is good; I would open apps from earlier in the day much later in the evening and it would still have it loaded where I left. Full screen no notch, A+. HDR support for Netflix, ripper. Would I buy it again, yes.
