    Dang! Xiaomi out here making other phone makers look like highway robbers.

    • +19

      The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing people they got a bargain smartphone

      • +3

        The Devil must be one cool guy.

      • +18

        I thought it was convincing people to pay iPhone prices.

        • +7

          No that's just criminal.

          • -1

            @plmko: Depends what price you put on your privacy. $1/day seems cheap to me (and I currently don't own any Apple products but I'm looking to switch because of this)

        • +1

          Even Satan isn't that evil!

      • +1

        Look how much Samsung can afford to discount their phones with all the vouchers and trade-in bonuses. The price we are paying after all that is really the true retail price lol They really have devalued their product by doing this too. Surprisingly Google has been more reasonable with their pricing

        • +1

          I don't know, $1300 for a 128GB phone doesn't seem all that reasonable. As far as Sammy goes, yup totally agree.

    • +17

      Has 3.5mm Headphone Jack, B28 & MicroSD support too which none of the other manufacturers want to offer 3.55m & MicroSD in any of the higher end products anymore.

      • +13

        As LG pulled out of the smartphone business, I think my next phone would be a Xiaomi. I do miss the HIFI QuadDac in LG flagship phones.

        • I loved my Xiaomi 9t (bought after having a gutful of bad samsung phones and software), though a recent drop shattered the glass back. Almost bought a pixel 6 as a replacement but that damn dog ugly camera ridge prevented that so now trying to decide with Xiaomi phone to buy.

      • +1

        OP deal has been extended another 7 days, please update post.
        I bought one, fingers crossed it arrives this week with express shipping.
        Thanks for the post!

    • +1

      Poco startup out as a Xiaomi brand but became independent about a year ago.

    • Does any body knows how Xiaomi handles or "not" handles privacy ? Is it same/similar way to Google ?

      • +5

        You get all the privacy invasion of google plus a bit more from Xiaomi. It is the price you pay for Android sadly. Haven't had any issues with my 9t, seem pretty similar to google.

        • Hey, atleast, they no longer work with cheetah for the security app, a company that actively sold data.

        • Are you aware their is a way to 'degoogle' a phone, can I do it with Xiaomi ?

          • +2

            @frewer: Most Xiaomi phones can be flashed with custom rom's, so should not be an issue, Just check before you buy that a compatible rom is available for the model.

        • +1

          Price you pay would be the same with Apple, guaranteed.

  • -2

    I reckoned these phone comes with built-in ads?

    • +10

      Bloatware? Yes. Built-in 'ads'? No.

      • -2

        The built in bloatware has built in ads… so that's a Maybe?

        Specifically 'Security' has a has when you install apps. It can be turned off.

        • +5

          True. Have used a Xiaomi phone in the past.

          No intrusive popups or anything fortunately.

      • Could you explain the difference please between "bloatware" and "built-in ads"? Are these features with all mid-range or "flagship" Chinese phones?

        • +9

          Bloatware is just useless applications loaded onto the phone by the manufacturer. My old Sony phone from 2013 had a Playstation app, a 'Sony Lounge', a WALKMAN app, and a bunch of other useless apps. This is bloatware.

          Built in ads I would say are just popups or messages telling you to download another app. For example, the Xiaomi file manager or calculator having an ad showing you another app they've made. Annoying, but not necessarily intrusive.

          No, not all midrange Chinese phones will come with bloatware or built in ads; some will come with stock Android, but that is quite rare to find. It depends on the company and software skin used.

      • Even Samsung has been pushing built-in ads on their latest phones.

  • +13

    Got this for $344 last week from Banggood AU. This flash deal is on every day at BG, don't let their fake scarcity fool you.

    See this deal:

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/653438

    • That was for the 6gb version.
      And on the mobile site there’s some group buy special. Be wary though cashback may not track.

    • +7

      6GB / 128GB

      This one I submitted is for 8GB / 256GB

      • +1

        POCO X3 Pro Global Version 8GB 256GB 6.67" 120Hz 5160mAh 4G Smartphone(au.banggood.com) for US$250.14 or ~AU$351.73 after coupon

        The 8GB 256GB variant is listed in the previous deal.

        • +2

          Yup, I didn't say it was a dupe deal, just pointing out this price is basically the normal price for this phone. It's been $344-$362 for 3 weeks with daily 'flash' deals.

          • +1

            @Nalar: The point I was making to Agret was that the deal you submitted was relevant.

    • How long was delivery? Used to be 4 weeks plus

  • "NFC: Multifunctional NFC, Availability varies between markets"

    So does this have NFC?

    • +2

      yes

    • Has NFC, doesn't have wireless charging. Only has USB2 cabled connectivity (through a USB-C port) so you can't dock it. Screen is IPS rather than AMOLED so the blacks aren't as good as some others. Otherwise it's a great phone. Note that it's a big phone, but also the battery lasts two days pretty easily (if you're one of those people who doesn't charge their phone every night).

      • Thanks for the info - no wireless charging is a dealkiller for me :-(

        • +2

          Each to their own. I've had wireless charging phones and never found the feature very useful.

          • +1

            @macrocephalic: The only place I'd like it would be in the car's wireless charging pad… but then you can't use Android Auto, you have to plug it in for that.

  • Does Gcam port work perfectly on this?

  • $348.91 for me, that's with the $6 insurance

    • Was $295au last month (as above). Not the greatest deal here…

      • +3

        That was HK Banggood.

        • +1

          Oh true. $50 for faster delivery, and maybe more meaningful warranty?

      • +2

        That was also only 6GB / 128GB

        • +2

          Wow I'm clearly half asleep tonight ¬¬

  • +1

    Australian warehouse means ACL applies to the item or not?

  • +1

    Spur of the moment buy. Should have checked before buying whether it was OLED. Ah well, higher resolution will offset that.

    • +1

      Despite not being OLED, it's still a very good screen.

    • Don't be disappointed. Colour is actually more natural on LCD

    • Oh thanks, I was going to pull the trigger. But no more lcd after using any Samsung (amoled tho).

      • +1

        Note 10 Pro for lower spec with AMOLED screen.
        or
        Poco F3 for higher spec and AMOLED.

        • I pulled the trigger for Note 10 Pro for less RAM and half the storage at slightly higher price (paid $389). TBH if this deal was on at the time I purchased, I would jump on this instead.

          I guess 108MP camera and AMOLED screen are something to look forward to but value for money this one wins by far imho.

    • Ended up cancelling my order. Wasn't a hassle so far, will be a few days before money back into paypal.

    • I think the F3 is basically the same but with an OLED screen.

  • +3

    Use the app and it works out slightly cheaper at $342 shipped from AU warehouse.

  • What is the difference between buying from HK Banggood vs AU Banggood? I'm not in a hurry to receive it as long as it is within the next four to six weeks. How about warranty?

  • What ROM is the best?

  • +4

    How is the camera? If you were after good camera for around same price range what would be choice? This or Xiaomi?

  • How is the update of this phone?

  • I have the 6/128 version of this mobile and it is pretty good so far. Only issue is VOLTE doesn't work for Boost mobile.

    • I ordered a Redmi note pro from this deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/657723 - VOLTE might be possible to enable - enter - ##86583## - enable Voice over LTE

      869434## - enable Voice over WIFI - worked on my redmi k30 5g…
      • +1

        I am aware of these codes and tried on Poco X3 Pro, Poco F3 & Redmi note 10 pro (yes , bought them for family members). All of them enable the VOLTE/VOWFI option in the settings, but don't work with boost mobile. This is due to MIUI 12 bug and it is extensively documented in Whirlpool and previous poco/redmi ozbargain threads. If you have Android 10 based miui, these options do work. ( I do have a Mi9 with Android 10 and VOLTE works fine).

        • I have Poco X3 Pro, I have Boost, VoLTE never worked on any phone prior. I had turned on the VoLTE and VoWiFi from the back end but it never worked.

          With Poco X3 Pro, all I had to do was use the codes listed on whirlpool. And it works flawlessly (put phone in airplane mode, turn on WiFi, and can still make calls).

          I have tried those codes on X3 NFC and Mi 11 Lite and they also worked no issues (on different SIM, but all are Boost).

          I recommend having a chat with Telstra support and making sure the service is enabled for your account, or ultimately do a factory reset and see if it works.

          For reference I'm on MIUI 12.5.3, but this worked out of the box on 12.0 or whatever it was.

          • @OpayuOnam: There is no issue with the SIM as it works fine on Mi9 and Oppo A52 mobiles. you must be lucky for it to work.

            • @manja: Sorry to hear it doesn't work for you, as I said I'm just surprised since it's working for me X3 Pro, and Dad and Sister X3 NFC…

              Do you have the international model or the Chinese one with a custom rom? maybe that plays a role?

          • @OpayuOnam: On Boost - VoWiFi and VoLTE work perfectly.

            I did read you might need to contact Boost support to get VoLTE enabled - I did this when I had my 9T, put the sim into the X3 Pro and its worked as soon as I entered the dialer code - YMMV.

            I'm running MIUI 12.5.4 Global

    Sooooo much phone for $350. Makes me seriously think about updating my Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but the old girl is still putting out for me.

    If you had to compare the performance of this phone to an iphone, which one would it be closest to?

    • How much do you pay for an iPhone? Not a fair comparison
