Dometalican, 24 May 2020Who says no to speed? The people who can't take advantage of it. Not everywhere has 5G buddy.yes i too agree that not all have 5G ,but its future of network ,may be, it can become an usual think in 2021 and yes not are gonna use there device for just nearly 1 year, we might not take the advantage now, but not "forever"..... .....Think of future buddy.....
Hope u have a good day
No 90hz or 120hz mode means its a fail for me. Vivo neo 3 5G is a much better value for money phone. Even realme x2 pro from last year is much better than this overpriced phone. Xiaomi is not what it used to be.
This is no POCO 1 version 2.
I hate notches, some dont care.
I love macro photography, some dont care.
I dont need an extra SD slot, some do.
I cannot afford a new phone each year, this phone will last me some years.
Never seen a phone with > 60hz screen, probaly will never care, but others do.
AMOLED is much better than LCD, unless maybe the phone is your nintendo replacement.
Is it to expensive? Compared to POCO 1 YES, compared to similar "flagship" phones no.
"your mileage may vary"
J k Mcnulty, 25 May 2020it depends on for how long you're going to stick with your phone. Average consumers are not t... moreCompletely agrees with your point except the 8k part. Not in 10 years will 8k become the standard for video lol. With all these data compression due to more and more storage being taken up on social media, 1080p would be the maximum resolution that most people who fall in your said group will enjoy even in 2030.
btw. I think vivo IQOO Z1 is what Poco F2 should've been:
- Dimensity 1000+
- 144Hz screen
- no fancy camera setup
- no fancy pop-up camera
- sold for 280€
If it was released worldwide, it would pretty much murder Poco F2's sales
Again, funny poll interpretation by gsmarena... Nearly 3/4 of people think it's a bad deal and the title is "F2 Pro was worth the wait", haha.
Anyway. Poco F2 was supposed to do three things: a) flagship chipset, b) price close to F1 and c) at least 120 Hz screen. It failed in 2 out of 3 tasks. It's nice that we got all this fancy glass build and all, but that's not why people liked Poco F1 so much. Give it plastic build, give it basic camera setup (who gives a f*ck about 'telemacro' or 'depth' sensors anyway) and if SD865 is too expensive, resort to MDTK 1000+ or SD855+, both perfectly good enough.
AnonD-903864, 24 May 2020I prefer the s765 or + s855 for a lower price. 5G and 8k are not necessary yet. If Xiaomi wan... moreit depends on for how long you're going to stick with your phone.
Average consumers are not tech enthusiast like us.
They are not going upgrade a phone every 1 or even 2 years. iphone SE 2020 makes so much havoc around so many goups cause, apple makes this device for the consumers who often stick to their phones for 3/4/5 years straight.
and trust me on that. There are a large number of these customers.
come to the point why 5g and 8k matters. Most of the buyers of Poco F2 pro is not going to buy another phone when 5g is going to avail in their region amd 8k become something standard of capturing videos.
maybe its not useful or necessary for many of us. But we still have other options within this price range.
and who knows when we're going to feel the need for 5g ,8K there'll a better Pocophone for us. ✌🏼️
Anonymous, 25 May 2020but... if you buy 4G phone this year will you buy 5G phone next year?or course not, because 5G rollout by telecommunication carrier are pretty slow.

GSMArena were viewing from their prespective...
This is the part that me, in asia, were laughing when reading GSMArena "idea". I just come here for the review, but always laugh at their thought.
To 5G or not?
If I'm gonna buy new phone this year, my next phone gonna be in 2025.
Therefore, I will buy 5G...
Anonymous, 24 May 2020We don't need trend in budget phoneMaybe u, but enthusiasts like me need.
Stay with 4G forever! satisfied with 60Hz forever! I would love to live back to stone Age forever! Don't bother me!
Anonymous, 24 May 2020IPhone SE 2020 isn't huge and has the best gaming performance of all time. Eww. Nobody would touch that with a 10 foot pole for gaming.
Half the screen of that tiny 4.7 inch size is occupied by controls leaving you with a lackluster game play experience.
Not to forget lack of higher refresh rate which is easily available on other 200-300 dollar smartphones.
Bought my f2 pro for $410 equivalent during a flash sale and using a voucher. Just waiting for it to arrive. I hope it would be worth it as my f1 that i'm using now.
