CompactPhones5ever, 09 Oct 2019There was never going to be Poco F2 in a first place imo. Redmi K20 Pro was an obvious success... moreWow you must be a privileged Indian to consider Xiaomi as expensive now
trapper09, 09 Oct 2019is that a joke?Person knowing true and making such joke would be a joke :)
I've rarely paid attention to Realme so I missed this :/
trapper09, 09 Oct 2019is that a joke?Yes. I didn't know they're gonna sell in Europe as well (usually don't) and thought "Europe" announcement was incorrect text. So it was based on that.
Now I've glanced through articles and I see I was wrong.
So, I'm starting to pay attention to the new Realmes.
This phone has everything you need including a damn headphone jack. Realme has already killed Xiaomi with their pricing. Also, realme phones have a lot better quality than xiaomi. Xiaomi uses cheap low quality displays.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2019Wait for Samsung s11e with SD865I heard that the compact variant didn't sell well enough to the point that it's not gonna be considered and I will not wait for a phone that has lost dignity by removing the headphone jack.
I'll stick to the RoG Phone II.
"It's slated to go official on
October 15 at simultaneous
event in Europe and China."
I didn't know India's in Europe. Great, now I can get the phone. :)
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2019Well, goodbye Pocofone F2...There was never going to be Poco F2 in a first place imo. Redmi K20 Pro was an obvious successor to Poco F1, but Xiaomi decided to drastically increase price, and to avoid the controversy of 2nd gen Poco being so much more expensive than the first one, they decided to call it differently.
Xiaomi is no longer the 'cheap' brand. Same thing happened to OnePlus - they built their brand on cheap devices, but once they grew popular enough, they started acting the like 'big boys' with their prices, and eventually ended up in a spot where the price/performance ratio is same as with Samsung or Huawei. This will most likely happen to Realme as well if they manage to grow big enough. But now it's a good time for the customers because they're trying to penetrate the market with extremelly competitive prices. Each upcoming generations will have worse and worse price/performance ratio.
Comparing X2 pro with k20 pro and note 8 pro is just not right. Realme flagship is just on another level
