Creates shipping tracking number which he drops in dhl after 20 days. Passing around strict order rules and processing time. With digits that mean nothing as physically the shipment will be accepted whenever seller is ready which is in about 20 days.
Anyways. Looks like there is a deal. They capture 20-100 orders. After that with the money they do big order from manufacturer with discount. And than in 3 weeks actually ship to you. There must be no other logical normal explanation.
Nick.B, 13 May 2020Problem is, you order from China and it comes in 30-40 days. 15-20 days just for the mail out!You can chose DHL shipping (and there is no customs if you chose DHL), also, they can sent from EU warehouse, so, again, no customs, and last but no least, all sellers form online sites in China (Aliexpress, Gearbest..), put 49$ or lower prices on the box, so, maybe will pass customs anyway.. And Shipping takes from a day of order, about 3 weeks to arrive.
I said rhat, because, those Chinese phones (Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, Lenovo...) Are in many cases way cheaper, than prices in EU. If you can get this Poco F2 Pro, for under 400 euros, now, that will be good deal.
BrendonF, 13 May 2020Its a reasonable price. One of the cheapest 865 chipset phones. The Mi 10 is a lot more expens... moreAlthough the Mi 10 is overpriced and not worth the price tag, it does offer OIS, a much larger main sensor, wireless charging, and a 90hz AMOLED that will give you the full flagship SoC experience. As the first price cuts start happening, the Mi 10 may actually be a much better deal.
Right now the Poco is at 500 Eur only the first 500 units, then it goes to 550 Eur. Had Xiaomi rebranded as Poco the Zoom Edition of the K30 Pro and we would be in perfect agreement.
BrendonF, 13 May 2020Its a reasonable price. One of the cheapest 865 chipset phones. The Mi 10 is a lot more expens... moreIts not cheapest. Iqoo neo 3 is the cheapest sd865 phone out there. Get your facts right
Koc , 12 May 2020The expensive poco era begins Its a reasonable price. One of the cheapest 865 chipset phones. The Mi 10 is a lot more expensive and aside from the 90 Hz curved screen it offers little extra and lacks a tele camera to boot.
An0nym0us, 12 May 2020Under 450 Dollar plsAfter a few months definitely. But launch price is $500 starting out
Don Hrle, 13 May 2020If it was useless why is everyone jumping to that boat? If u ever used one hrs you'd know why It is useless to have 1080p or higher res screen too on a phone, but it is almost on every phone, because manufacturers put features and with time it becomes normal, consumers just takes it as granted, but does not mean that some features are not gimmicks lr usefull at all
this is just sad... didnt they launch a mid range device with 120Hz LCD? im sure they could have managed to put a 90Hz OLED at least in their TOP phone. or even put the same 120Hz panel tech from the X2 even if its LCD we still appreciate it more than javing just 60Hz
Katakuri , 13 May 2020It's all good 90hz refresh rate is the only thing missing if they add it in the next software ... morenot sure if you're joking... but that not how refresh rates work... cant just add more Hz after the device is made. the screen has to be the part that supports it and if it did support it it would be there from launch, so sadly you gonna be stuck with 60Hz if you buy this
It's all good 90hz refresh rate is the only thing missing if they add it in the next software update, i'll probably buy it.
T M, 13 May 2020Lmao!
The amount of desusional user here is incredible. Ferrari taste, Honda Fit bank account.You can get 120Hz screen & SD865 from other makers for around ~$500.
Poco is not the Ferrari
Problem is, you order from China and it comes in 30-40 days. 15-20 days just for the mail out!
I hope they offer a lower tier like a non-PRO with LCD screen, plastic back, etc to reach the POCO F1 pricing
Dear gsmarena team, review please? 😁
I'll definitely wait for F3, my poco F1 is running smoothly. I'll order a replacement battery after the lockdown is over.
Anonymous, 13 May 2020Everytime there is new innovation — people call it a gimmick.
It's the same with internet ... moreYour example is really far-fetched. Nobody ever said that 0.1 - 1Mbps internet speed is good enough. Some people say that 1000Mbps internet speed is enough for most users and I would agree.
90hz - 120hz panel for a phone is a useless overkill feature that shortens battery life. My 120hz OLED TV and 165hz gaming monitor are amazing but I would never need those refresh rates on a phone.
