Zero, 15 Apr 2020This is the PocoPhone of this year. And seems that Apple will throw us every 3 years a new iP... more4GB RAM is enough for iPhones. Infact, you won't even notice the difference between 4GBs and 6GB.
Finally a small phone! But I have to be honest, I'm utterly disappointed by the pricing here in Europe. 400$ would be around 370€ but in the end it got to 480€, that's even more than the original SE from 2016. With more storage it even comes close to the XR.
This is a great buy. If a person knows how to use a phone smartly ( without worrying about bezels and megapixels of cameras), this is one of the best choices.
Quite possible this will make life tough for Pixel 4a and Oneplus 8 siblings, specially in India.

Still, this one looks interesting. Aparently this one will have 4 GB RAM. If that so... the next iPhone would start with 6.
Definately NOT a Flagship Killer, but is the phone made to ruin the Mid Range of Android.
Harsh times for Android has finally come.
And now for me the slogan for it would be:
"You don't need googles or expensive phones to have the best for the price".
MadMel, 15 Apr 2020400$ for SoC, rest you could just throw away ...Let's see how many "SoC collectors" will there be in the world ;) It's by no means a meaningful upgrade for X, XR, XS owners and probably even iP 7/8 owners might want to wait this one off. But I can see this as a feasible "first iPhone for the budget-conscious myself" or a ...5/5S/6/6S/SE upgrade. Why not?
Anyway, it would be nice to get rid of comments like "Total trash, anyone buying it is a !" IN GENERAL. It doesn't serve any meaningful purpose, just stoking the negative emotions. Of course there are excellent phones, good phones, mediocre phones and bad phones. But if someone wants this or that phone, all right. Let's give a polite, neutral, non-emotional, constructive opinion/advice. Let's not scoff or swear. It's JUST a phone, folks...! ;)
I'm no Apple fan and I've used only last-years Android flagships because I can buy them twice as cheap, but man. This is a great phone for that price. Sure, the screen is pretty small and the bezels are pretty big, but that's the point of the phone, to be rather small. But what kind of Android phone can you get at 400$ with this kind of performance and camera quality? This phone has the same camera as the 11 Pro, sure you don't get ultra-wide nor tele cameras, but the primary camera is the same.
At 400$, almost no Android phone has stereo speakers, IP67 and this kind of build quality (I'm so tired of plastic phones).
The Pixel 3A has similar camera quality, but that's it. It's got no IP rating, a plastic case, a mono speaker.
Didn't expected an A13 Bionic on this one... Also Wireless charging and IP67 rating under 399 is impressive...
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2020Fastest device on the market, excellent camera, dirt cheap.Good joke. But is good you actually believe it. This way can apple survive.
Only Apple can release a 2014 design phone in 2020 and get praise from their fanbase.
Apple could've at least trimmed the bezels, yes?
"You get one 12 MP sensor on the back (with dual-pixel autofocus no less),"
No, read the specifications. It doesn't have dual pixel autofocus. It also doesn't have a night mode. Selfie camera is worse, too. Therefore the camera is a significant downgrade compared with the iPhone 11 main camera.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2020Now people in India no longer need to buy from Xiaomi and Realme. I assume this to be a sarcastic comment. Even if we convert the 400$ into INR which is approx. 30K INR (Usually Indian taxes result in a higher price than the one shown in USD). A majority of smartphone buyers purchase phones for less than that amount. Also, majority of Realme and Xiaomi's products are below that amount.

Davy Jones, 15 Apr 2020Overpriced as hellFastest device on the market, excellent camera, dirt cheap.
Great camera and processing power and all but... Imagine playing 400 bucks for a 4.7 in LCD in 2020.
Well, I suppose it might have its fair share of audience in the US, but for a little more you might as well pick up an XR or 11.
Either way, for the rest of the world there's probably better choices, given that in EU it'll cost around 600$.
