Aside from the notch and the lame name, that's some killer pricing for the specs! A truly revolutionary phone. Move aside OnePlus, there's a new flagship-killer!
3.5mm jack, IR blaster, a USB-C port, microSD slot, Excellent stereo speakers, good cameras, Astounding battery life from the 4000 mAh battery, better UI that looks more stock & clean than MIUI.
All for $260 only.
The Cons should also include;
Plastic frame, let's see what Zack of JerryRigEverything thinks of that.
QuickCharge 3.0 which overcharges and overheats the battery, when the option of QuickCharge 4.0 which corrects all that is available, better yet is QuickCharge 4+ which supports USB-PD.
Also using a substandard DAC for the 3.5mm Jack doesn't help, even when you have better earphones the DAC still lets you down.
Does anyone know the quality of RAM used? Is it LPDDR 3, LPDDR 4, or LPDDR 4X.
"Honor Play is now the king of budget flagship with Kirin 970!" Xiaomi be like "Kirin 970? Hold my beer.."
Godd*mmit Xiaomi, start putting NFC on your phones! It's the only reason I don't get a MA2 or for example the Pocophone. Where I live you can get all your metro and bus tickets on your phone and validate with NFC. I'll stick with my BQ Aquaris X for longer then, battery still lasts me two days easily
The only hope I have is.... Jerryrig everything pls don't review this phone. (Bad memories of great Mi 5)
How GSMarena get that it has Sony IMX386 sensor. It is nowhere mentioned on official site. Looking on camera comparison tool, it seems Pocofone has same sensor has Redmi Note 5 AI Dual Camera.

I am truly impressed, sure. I can't expect the balancing unit and water proofing on a 300$ flagship but honestly! That's a massive kudos on the excellent work!
The notch is still an eye sore for me. But for those who don't mind I recommend on this babe! Even though it has a rather silly yet catchy name!
Rambhat, 22 Aug 2018The only flagship phone with a plastic back?????$300 price that provides S845, 6gb ram, 64gb storage, expandable storage, liquid cooling, stereo speakers, a good camera setup, 4000 mAh battery, infrared face unlock, fast charging, fm radio, latest 5.0 Bluetooth and lots of stuff.
I don't get it, what are you crying about?
