happee, 06 Sep 2018yes. most phones years ago have plastic build quality, so this one is cheap. but it doesnt cha... moreAs someone who has dabbled in materials engineering, I can tell you that the converse is true.
Glass and metal are actually inferior; plastic has better durability, tensile strength and is versatile depending on the additives used. Keep in mind that even fuel tanks for automobiles are made from plastics because of their heat resistance and other attributes vis-a-vis metal. These are engineering plastics and far more premium than metal or glass. Granted that the latter look great on Day 1 but over time they cannot stand the wear and tear as much. A glass phone will look terrible over time and this only means that manufacturers make more money due to planned obsolescence #. So yes, glass and metal are more 'premium' for manufacturers.
Just bought this phone a week ago! It is amazing. Seriously I have a Note 8 and I had to buy a secondary phone. I was excited over the price and the specs but the real deal is even better. The software is just great! Much better then the samsung bloatware... If you want a new phone and do not intend to buy The new Iphone sharade or the Note 9 or the Huawei 20 Pro then dont even consider anything else (not even One Plus - that is direct trash compared to this phone) and just go right ahead and buy the Pocophone F1 ! I have not been this excited about a phone since Note 4!
Sun Sand, 26 Sep 2018Does the USB C port have audio support! If yes then it would be possible to use USB C headphones!!Mi Store sell USB typce headphone for pocophone it may be an answer maybe not.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2018But the camera of Mi A2 is better..No! IMX 486 is not any better than 363. Why? IMX 363 has dual pixel auto focus while 486 dont. It is laid back to the software itself and pocophone is still better than 486.
Does the USB C port have audio support! If yes then it would be possible to use USB C headphones!!
Zank, 16 Sep 2018I have a Nokia 8; should I "upgrade" to the Pocophone F1?Yes
Xiaomi still going strong as ever. If only the back camera were a little better, then I will spend no hesitation to buy this monster. Probably I will still buy it though, being the Xiaomi fanboy I am.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2018I think Mi A2 is not worse compared to Pocophone, but much cheaper, therefore better choice.Not even close to this Beast. SD845 is like miles miles and miles ahead of SD 660. I've used both this thing is a Beast. It beats even Note 9. I don't have to explain more

Abdul Salam, 17 Sep 2018Camera quality is very bad. Poco F1 not flagship phone, Only SD 845 flagship.Haters

Anonymous, 16 Sep 2018Snapdragon weak throttling Soc nothing new.every phone will throttle at a point. The problem here is how the game react / behave to the throttling algorithm.
If the game that you play relies heavily on GPU performance then you wont have any issue because no throttling observe, even at hot 45 C battery temps. Games such like Asphalt 9 and NFS no limit for instance.
However if you play CPU intensive game such as Cytus 2, Honkai Impact, Dynasty Warrior Unleashed, etc, then yes the you will the notice the frame definitely tanks. Enabling 60 fps option wont do a thing because the CPU already start to limit itself.
I solve this by of course, rooting. Then i let the CPU go all out while dropping GPU frequency about half of its speed and proceed to lowered few graphic settings. Now i can enjoy buttery smooth 60 fps gameplay with the battery heat generation is about the same as stock and the back of the phone isnt hot at all. LOL!
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2018The screen on this is way below average , typical XIaomi crap screen.don't expect, they cut corners right?
Abdul Salam, 17 Sep 2018Camera quality is very bad. Poco F1 not flagship phone, Only SD 845 flagship.its called Master of Speed not Master of Phonephotography. Get It?
