Carol, 13 Jan 2019If you call pocoophone good, you most probably never used a good phone.Or you never used a pocophone F1!That's for sure! The MI 8 wich is even better only costs $50 more!

While people like this keep on complaining there are millions of happy customers with the phone. People like this cannot appreciate anything good. And just want to complain, complain and complain, even on when there is so much good with the phone. Pocofone has already received Pie update before Note 9, just saying.
Gandalfdenvite, 12 Jan 2019Pie has "Private DNS", I use "dns.adguard.com"!Changing the DNS doesn't block Xiaomi from sending data back to their servers, unless AdGuard blocked it which I doubt they did.
Plastic cheap adware unreliable junk is what you pay for and what you get. in 1 years time you will need another phone, so there goes the price difference.
About having tactile feedback with a vibration everytime you unlock with the fingerprint scanner... My first phone with a fingerprint scanner was a Xiaomi. Then I used a Sony, which had that vibration. I found it irritating, cumbersome, noisy and a drain on battery. I prefer Xiaomi's approach of a vibration only when you mistouch the scanner. And other Android phones should at least have the option of turning it on or off.
Heisen8erg, 12 Jan 2019I have a problem understanding the meaning of flagship and midrange. What do you mean when you... moreFlagship derives from word flag and ship, meaning that a flagship product is the representation of a company. In pocohone case, the F1 is the flagship since it is the only product from poco/pocophone. But if it is in a broader sense, which in this case xiaomi, then the mi 8 and its pro version are the flagship
AnonD-804996, 12 Jan 2019I've decided to use all my phones without a case. What's the point of buying beautiful glass d... moreI got mi5 for$190 and glass back only last one week after my sister dropped it when she received call from our grandparents. It cost $30 to fix, of course using my sister allowance to pay for it. Somehow it survived till now without case.
I thought that the naming of the phone was interesting, because in many ways I felt the Oppo F1 to be the best high quality low price offering they ever made (still to this day). Perhaps it was a reference to that phone?
edwin, 12 Jan 2019i bought my pocophone 6/128 for 282 EUR at gearbest plus 2 years warranty :D I paid less than 200 EUR for my S9. Boxing week sale. Not in Europe, of course. :-P
I have a problem understanding the meaning of flagship and midrange. What do you mean when you say poco is not a flagship. Flagship specs, flagship camera, flagship support, flagship feauters, midrange display, plastic build. I dont get it how this phone count as "midrange". Display and the material is what differentiate flagship and midrange? Or it has to be perfect to be recocnised as a flagship like all those "perfect" flagships with +700$ price tag :))))
Midrange phones are just as fast as flagships, so if you do not intend to play PUBG mobile at highest settings then a midrange phone for the same price/money but without any of the Pocophone F1 problems, is a far better option!

You ... moreBuudy, If you really looking pocophone as flagship... sorry man, you are on wrong track.
That phone is made for core performance, not for amazing looks & style. Look at the price 1st. If you want flagship, you should pay flagship price. Pocophone is not for you brother.
BTW @Gsmarena, IR face unlock works preety well in most of the regions. Change your region & enjoy.
