Not sure if the price is a placeholder since POCO F4 GT now offered at US$469 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005004181661309.html :)

Update 20 Jun: The page keeps updating, the price is reduced by 18%, some additional details provided like 120Hz AMOLED. I'm sure this is not the final price drop.

    Is the official launch price cheaper, compared to normal price (or RRP)?

  • +6

    Where is the bargain?

    • +1

      Just an ads

    Snapdragon 870 ? Lol

    • Probably the best Android chip available right now.

      The newer cpus (888, 8gen1) are more powerful on paper, but have terrible thermal performance and efficiency, resulting in throttling (~capped performance) and worse battery life.

    • Not bad. 870 is powerful enough for most users.

  • Wouldn't the POCO F3 be a much better buy? ~$400 vs ~$700+

    • Pay more for an ugly plastic back.

      • most people put cases on their phones anyway

    • +1

      Only issue with F3 is no VoLTE and VoWIFI with Telstra. No n40 for Optus.
      Mostly minor issues for F3. I would rather opt for other mid-ranges for $300 than paying another $300 to get such updates.

        I haven't done any research for Telstra, but have you tried:
        ##86583## (for VoLTE)
        ##869434## (for VoWiFi)
        (That's star hash star hash 86583 hash star hash star, my phone doesn't handle markup very well sorry)

        • I'm not sure if this is the right one but whatever it is, it works. Mine does wifi and volte calls.

          • @krunchymoses: Yes that's very strange and chaotic. A few of F3 have band 28 supported but a lot not. The hardware certainly supports these easily and no-one really knows if that's restrictions via the os or antenna…

      • ┬┐The "only" issue?

        What about a virtual proximity sensor that makes using your phone as a phone hell?

  • +1

    $100 more at launch than the Poco F3 was??

    No way.

  • Not buying Xiaomi phones anymore, got an Poco X3 GT, only good thing is the battery

    • +3

      What do you find bad about the phone? Been using a POCO X3 Pro for nearly half a year now, has held up decently well.

      • +1

        X3 GT doesn't officially support band 28 though a lot of website says yes. That is a serious issue if you travel a lot.

      • I bought a brand new Poco X3 pro (8gb/256gb) last February from Banggood for <AUD$315 and sold it for AUD$375 on ebay after using it for one year. Lol

        Best phone as per my use.

      • Mine is the X3 GT, different from X3 pro

  • +1

    The Realme GT Neo 3 with the Dimensity 8100 is a far better buy.

  • -2

    Unfortunately they don't have international warranty

  • Might be an OK deal for a Poco F4 GT. But it isn't so… it isn't.

  • -1

    They are all going to slow down eventually…. give or take 1 to 1.5 years of use

  • +1

    For around the same price you can get the Realme GT 2 or for a cheaper price the OnePlus 9RT both have better specs.

  • -1

    Crazy to buy SD870 at this price.

    • Again, probably the best cpu available for Android as of today. The theoretical better performance of the newer ones (888, 8gen1) means little if they suck at thermal/power efficiency and end up throttling and worsening battery life.

  • Poco F2 Pro driver here… this F4 doesn't look enticing…

    What a crappy order page. Doesn't even tell you the colour you are ordering.

  • L
    Would like to buy Realme GT2 Global version at around $600 including GST! Any suggestions?

  • Wait for Nothing Phone (1)

  • Looking to spend about $400-500. Reliable phone for parent. Any recommendation?
