This comments section belong to realme 2. Why everyone talking and debating poco f1. Poco is really affecting phone market aren't they
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2018That's a very bad trend!
Reviewers could get phones out of special series with better part... moreI actually like this trend. Yes the poco f1 top end variant was given but I could find out all the pros and cons of the phone immediately and didn't have to wait. I liked what I saw and I bought the poco f1 today based on the reviews. Regardless of the top end variant the screen, cameras, soc, battery, audio Dac etc are all the same and thats what I was looking at in the review.
And you may have missed the part of how calibrated the screen was. It is better calibrated than even the $1000 Sony Xz2 premium.
Honestly it's a flag ship phone in all aspects except for the build as most flagships come in glass or metal but since I am going to slap a protective case on it the looks are of secondary importance.

Reviewers could get phones out of special series with better part... moreDude, that's simple the point in the Pocophone, delivering all it can for the lowest price possible, that's why no AMOLED, no IP rating, and also fewer Bands, if they went for a more "flagship" modem with a lot of bands that would had increased the price, making what makes the phone special useless, then if they would provide all the little features, like they do for example on the Mi Mix 2s, then why would launch the phone that would compete with the same products, instead if they use a lesser modem, and placed the phone by region it is way better, making it more affordable, which is the phone idea.

Reviewers could get phones out of special series with better parts or such a things . . .
Reviewers got This time the top-notch POCO with 8GB in (that stolen) Spec.Ed.,
but that doesn't even launched globally.
Also reviewed another phone, such has been launched later.
That's very silly.
and that POCO review is simple to good to be true!
and yes, that (or even better) display you can get in a Zenfone Max Pro for much less.
and doesn't even matches the specs even in the top-notch Spec.Ed.
(500nits in specs by Xiaomi)
and nothing about the very poor radio coverage in that hype-review,
even one 110 USD Android Go PHONE can offer more bands.
POCO could be a good gaming piece,
but has not much to do with a flagship PHONE!
Xhxhyy, 28 Aug 20189000 Rupee will got you this. Meanwhile 21000 Rupee will get you Pocophone with far better in ... moreAs you yourself have wrote, that phone costs more than twice the amount of this. I can assure you that if anyone is looking at this phone (or any phone in this budget), then they don't have the budget to buy something worth twice the price...
LG Superfan, 28 Aug 2018Oh thats good now we dont have to wait weeks after unvieling for review and can decide if the ... moreI know right. It indeed works best for all. No anxious wait after unveiling. The reviewers also don't need to follow the barrage of pesky leaks before the launch.

Anonymous, 28 Aug 2018Reviewers get it way before us mate! They are under embargo till the actual launch of the device.Yes but previously Gsmarena posted review week after unvieling but hours
Another Iphone X copycat! Why don't you make your own design? Why copy?
Xhxhyy, 28 Aug 2018I'm amazed that Snapdragon 450 still used in 2018.
It should be replaced or discontinued. QSD... more450 is mostly a underclocked 625...
Same cortex A53
Same Adreno 506
Same Hexagon 546 DSP
Same cat7 modem
But weaker video encoder...
Perfs are close between 450 and 625.
When 636 is far far better than 625!
And P60 is slighly better than 636
if they re-launch Realme 1 with fingerprint scanner, good Cameras and usb type c, then it would be a real deal
Xhxhyy, 28 Aug 2018I'm amazed that Snapdragon 450 still used in 2018. It should be replaced or discontinued. QSD... moresd 450 was re-branded from sd 625 .. it mostly the same soc but with different name.. if i not mistaken sd 450 have slightly lower clock speed compared to sd 625.
Oppo, Huawei, Xiaomi, they all look exactly the same.
Just compare it with Oppo A3s, and you'll get , how oppo is killing itself by this sub-brand.
