No NFC??? Oh man, they were so close. But I'm not paying 300 bucks for a phone in 2018 that can't do contactless payments. What a shame
O S, 22 Aug 2018The Cons should also include; Plastic frame, let's see what Zack of JerryRigEverything thinks... moreIts LPDDR4X. I saw that mention in somewhere i cant remember. And also there budget Redmi Note 5 has LPDDR4X Ram.so there is no way they use cheaper once .hell even they used UFS 2.1 in this.So no way
I really like this phone, mainly for its plastic back (I really hate glass !), large battery, and price. But if you need a good camera, the OnePlus 6 delivers way more in terms of low-light performance and it also has a much higher video bitrate (which means much better video quality).

[deleted post]Because there is only two (yes 2!) QC4.0 charger currently and they are too expensive (the Razer's is 50$).
This smartphone reveal how stupid is the industry imo even if it's a great deal for the customer (but don't believe you can buy it for less than 400€ if it's officially shiped in EU/US):
How the hell can a "high end" CPU ends up in a phone at that price ? It just means that this processor is cheap for companies and the snapdragons clearly lacked further developement and we could have a better line up of CPU/GPU whitout those ridiculous S4XX (and S630 or S625 which are still used by too many phones launched in 2018).
Even the S636 seems to use more power than this S845 (look at note 5 pro battery-score).
I don't get where is going the money.
Someone was talking about cars: imagine if the mustang was launched with its V8, 400HP and 4l/100km (70 mpg).
[deleted post]What do you have to say about the QuickCharge 3.0 used (you telling me to shut up, while you are the one who shut up and didn't refer to my comment about it)
Even Qualcomm admit that QuickCharge 3.0 sometimes overheats and overcharges your battery, which they corrected in QuickCharge 4.0
SD845 supports QuickCharge 4+ which is compatible with USB-PD why didn't they use that
The Xiaomi POCO F1 is best in the price range but to say it has no compromise is a blatant lie. I'm no Xiaomi hater, in fact, my daily driver is Xiaomi.
Xiaomi made some compromise to achieve this price, which is fine, really everyone does that. I was just stating some of them and asking questions of some specs that were not stated.
[deleted post]You need to save cost somewhere don't you? If you want qc 4+ you are welcome to buuy mi8... or buy a 1000$ phone and shut up, you don't get 1000$ for 300...
This phone basically took out Honor Play , Mi A2, OnePlus 6 and Asus Zenfone 5Z out of the competition.

Seriously, this is actually a good thing. We'll be seing more of this flagship budget phones battle a lot in the future because of Xiaomi move by introducing Pocophone in the market. It will benefits us eventually.

Sadly i trust the professional reviewers rather than some random people.

Because I'm pretty sure that phones front looks nowhere close to iPhone x and camera is better than my iPhone 8 for stills in most situations, video, yeah that's bad, but that ain't my major concern anyways (this one depends on person to person), performance is crazy good and to think I bought it for 500 for 128 rather than iPhone 8(my work phone) which was 800 odd...
damn xiaomi went batshit crazy on this one, truly the only flagship killer of this year
Vic4BBM, 22 Aug 2018Now truely this is a flagship killer, if we look at price vis-a-vis hardware on offer.

"- the cameras. With Sony sensors, it may not be the best but will not be bad ones at least"
I am not sure what you meant by it, but ATM there are no better camera sensors than Sony's and that has been the case for years.

It uses the same low quality LCD display, microphone and speakers like other Xiaomi phones. And also bad video recording capability. My dad uses the Mi Mix 2S and the video quality is worst than an iPhone 4S. Camera is par on iPhone 6. 0$ budget for engineering and design team because they completely copied iPhone X design. That's what make them keep the prices very low.
