Ugly, ugly punch hole selfie camera in an otherwise attractive package. What was Xiaomi thinking? No flagship phone of 2021 should have ugly punch hole selfie camera(s)! I'd take a perfect 100% hole free, all screen display anytime with 60Hz display than one with an ugly selfie camera hole despite it having a 120Hz, or even a 144Hz +++ display! Ugly, ugly, ugly!
RIFTY, 01 Mar 2021no pop up camera no deal. they just ruined the main distinctive quirk of this phone downvote pls.same deal here for me. I rarely, or almost never take selfies. the FRONT camera is entirely useless for users like myself. Having an ugly, obnoxious punch-hole in the display is a HUGE deal breaker for me. If I could choose, I would just for-go the front camera entirely. I dont use it, i dont need it, but its creating a hole on my otherwise perfect phone display.
no pop up camera no deal. they just ruined the main distinctive quirk of this phone downvote pls.
it kinda doesn't feel like an upgrade compared to the K30 Pro. But have an high-refresh rate AMOLED display now, and that's kinda cool. But that's basically all.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2021Well, Redmi and Xiaomi did release phones for a low price which didnt hold up in the real mark... moreSrrangly enough most blotted service right now is Google's regarding adds and of course there's no privacy whatsoever. MIUI is what it is but even MIUI works better with out it (Google) at least that's my experience with K30 Pro, had a Mi Max long ago. While it can serve the purpose especially for gaming (regarding hardware) I certainly want something else for a daily steady driver (software) from the phone for now I settled down with Sony regarding that. Whose earlier when CM and costum ROMs had their peak regarding having clean secure software but unfortunately those days are also long gone and people generally get tired of doing it.
Well, Redmi and Xiaomi did release phones for a low price which didnt hold up in the real market later. Especially outside Asia their phones did see a massive bump in price when hitting the street. We talk 100-200€ more than first talked about. That's ridiculous and it makes xiaomi less attractive, since you already have to live with unwanted in-UI advertisement and data-leakage to china (that Xiaomi said to have worked on). I was a massive xiaomi fan back when the mi mix (1) was released. But Im all fed up with them already. They know how to regulate prices, but at what cost?

Flask alike one's with battery can be sized as smaller phone. I know only one (series) that resolved those problems that can be used with regular cables in exclusive player mode and can even slowly change the phone (Android only) but those are getting old today and performance isn't stellar (100 - 105 dB SINAD, UB/B 2/4 V).
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2021I think you are confusing phones here. I was talking about Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC model. And I was... moreYep, so basically when the Redmi K40 article comes up. He says that the Realme X3 Superzoom is the best alternative out there. He said that it has good chip, cameras, and display for its price (400 euros). I jist couldn't agree and i said that even 200 euros phone like Poco X3 has all of those features minus the 855 and periscope zoom, and even X3 Superzoom cuts a lot of corners. I said that even Poco M3 has stereo speakers, bright display, better battery. And he keep disagreeing. Such a heavy Realme fanboy

1. No latest chipset
2. No 5G when other phones offer
3. No stereo speakees when even an 150 euros phone offer one
4. Main camera, ultrawide, periscope, selfie cam is bad at night
5. Display is only 400 nits! (WTF???)
6. Design is same as 2019 Q1 Realme phones, very boring
7. Plastic frame
8. Bad vibration motor when Poco F2 Pro and Mi 10T Pro has an great one
React 2 Gadgets YT, 28 Feb 2021To be exact, it is an telephoto lens used for macro. As the focal length is 50mmAh yes

Also, if you do need a little more quality just go for the Poco X3 NFC. It cost around 50-60EUR more, but is better in all departments. Of course, even in this case, you can't except ground breaking speaker or display quality. But still, we are talking about a 200EUR phone.
200EUR phones from Samsung, Sony, Motorola or Nokia are far worse.

If more heat and power is drawn while the difference in performance is only 10%, what's the point? Even S21, Vivo, Mi 11 throttles easily with the SD 888. All 5nm chips are phrone to throttling except Kirin 9000. And the most efficient 5nm is A14 bionic. While the failures are 888 and EXYNOS 2100

No headphone jack - no buy. How the heck do they get certified with "high res audio" if there is no analog audio output via 3.5mm jack? Heck, I'd be fine with 2.5mm jack! If size is an issue, use the smaller variant!
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2021Poco M3 has just over 400nits of brightness and most recent models have terrible speaker, even... moreThat's because of the Chipset itself or maybe Xiaomi just wanted to be first so they don't spend time optimizing it. Even the Mi 9 with 3300mah Battery is very good. Snapdragon 888 is basically an hot chipset and sucks a lot of power even if it says 5 nm. And yes, stereo speakers from Poco M3 are bad, but they are better than having one speaker. And also, Realme X3 Superzoom has 400 nits for an Flagship killer, which is unacceptable and it has no 5G. At the same price, around $400, i could get Poco F2 Pro Or Mi 10T Pro with better screen, cameras, chipset, speakers, and design. Realme X3 Superzoom design is very boring
