I'd owned this phone for a year+ & this is the most affordable yet best phone I owned so far after my experience with other brands. Thank you, Xiaomi.
Btw, Im not saying that other brands are not good but Im sure if you buy higher spec, it'll may beat Poco F1. But you have to spend more $$ though.
I've been using poco f1 for two years, and the only thing that I despise about this phone is that this thing running so smoothly and still in good condition after all this time thus I don't have a 'reason' to buy a new phone
Now its nearly 2 years from the date i satrted to use by poco f1. Nothing gonna wrong yet. Superb quality mobile that i ever used.
I have been using my pocophone for over a year now, still I find it hard to switch to other device. I have one of the fastest processor in market, it has face unlock and trust me it makes life so much easier, it has tremendousbattery life even today, it has great software supoort and amazing performance overall. I think this is the best thing any phone comoany has ever given me since I started using phone back in 2004. Love this phone
Omar sako, 30 Jan 2020Am a Poco user from more than year ago, I haven't face that problemPoco it's aaa phone filled with wondder
Regarding the face unlock feature, you can change your region to Singapore (least bloatware) or india and face unlock will start appearing in your settings, it's also very fast and supports app lock as well..
Ali Bestani, 08 Feb 2020It is been almost a year since I bought Pocophone and I've been changing a lot of phone device... moreI read this through my poco f1. I have it for 1 year and 3 months. I bought it for 320 euro. Wow just wow. I would buy the same phone again if i turn the time back.
I have been using POCO F1 since last April19 and feeling good. Expecting eagerly for the next POCO F2 without changing F1. The features are pretty good in F1 except the cameras. Other basic features are all good which actually do not there in some big brands
It is been almost a year since I bought Pocophone and I've been changing a lot of phone devices in the last five years and maximum duration of any phone that stays with me is not more than 8 months and I used to own Samsung Note, galaxy...etc, Huawei flagships, but there was always something missing, but this is the first phone that I'm satisfied with the phone, except the selfie camera is not that good, otherwise, the rest is amazing and till this moment, I would like to change it to something new but I'm still waiting for something like pocophone but with better selfie.
I've owned an F1 since they became available here in Singapore some 16 months ago, most reliable & fastest phone I've ever owned. Previously I've had Samsung & LG flagship phones but prefer this.
The face recognition has worked from day one here? It's much better than I expected & use it 99% of the time. Issues with the phone have been minor, camera is only average but acceptable. It got better with updated software. Notification LED is single colour & you cannot have different sounds to distinguish an SMS from WhatsApp etc.
Biggest gripe is when I travel to the USA, limited LTE bands mean you're stuck mostly with T Mobile whose coverage in many places pretty weak.
Love the fact that it has a place for a SD card (even if it means no second Sim) & 3.5mm socket.
Yes I'd buy another & will when the F2 comes out.
taktak, 08 Nov 2019hey what is the successor of this beast nowadays? is it still the best stuff we can get for it... moreIf the OS is the only issue, you can flash your own onto the phone. LinusTechTips did a video on the entire process using the pocophone f1 which is what I am considering doing if I get this phone since it fixes issues I would have with the MIUI
hey what is the successor of this beast nowadays? is it still the best stuff we can get for its price range ? I saw the meizu 16t looking interesting but apparently meizu has a shitty OS..
hummer, 06 Aug 2019Really? You do realize in day to day use most of those features don't matter? Plastic body? Do... moreI don't want to say that I don't need this and that feature. I would say for the price of Pocophone F1 asking, it does has the cut corners that someone just too greed to want for a direct copy of Samsung Note 9, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Oneplus 6T, or even LG V40.
For the controversy of innovation term at such low price, I would say for the price, it is what it can offer that still retain the SD845 SoC.
Certainly this Pocophone F1 is not for everyone that looking for so called quality with such low price. And to call OLED screen, glass and metal body, NFC, wireless charging IP68 water resistant are quality offering also are not true. Simply these are expensive add on tech, and nothing to do with quality.
It is down to personal mindset that think these add on tech are mean better things, then someone should pay more to get these features instead of blaming this Pocophone F1 doesn't offer this and that.
Finally with last few updates, Widewine L1 is finally here.
As always, I only see this Pocophone F1 is lacking NFC as the prime missing feature. Others features are the logic cut cost alternatives, such as LCD screen, plastic body, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which is as tough as it's 6th generation glass (please go YouTube watch scratch test video), water resistant, and wireless charging. Yes, it does lack in camera department as well, not featuring OIS, also not the best in photography quality. Read that it's photography quality is not the best in 2018, but it is among the best at it's asking price category.
