The Chinese K20 pro comes with ufs 3, 12gb ram and 512gb storage. So yes, that is the real f2. But Europe get an f1 with a new cpu and amoled screen. The rest of the hardware is the same as the f1.
[deleted post]Absolutely agree..
Take Xiaomi Mi9 lineup for example,all of them offering excellent specs for 30-35% of that trio price..I'd say $400 for a good Mi9 variant plus $600 for some really good mirrorless dig.camera...

The low end K20 pro. For the same price as the flagship K20 pro... Nah, f1 is still better than this joke. At least in Europe!
Just ordered my Mi9t Pro with Global Rom,blue one..
365euro for 8/128 GB variant,I think it's a great value..
Huh ! No optical image stabalizer...bye Xiaomi...we don’t need optical zoom we need OIS
Oi oi! What about Asus Zenfone 6? Back then, these two (K20 Pro and Zenfone 6/6Z) are compared with each other all the time and the narrow victory always belonged to Zenfone 6 for being more feature rich than this. Please add the Zenfone 6 as a popular alternative.

That's because you went and purchased the K20 Pro with a Chinese ROM, clowns. The Global Mi9T Pro has all the bands required in Europe.

It has a decent display with a lot of advantages compared to crapmoled used in flagships.
Zenfone 6 isn't considered worthy of being a competitor? In many aspects it's better than the K20 Pro..
Reborn, 27 Aug 2019I am from Europe and I have the opportunity to buy the K20 Pro, but what I want to know is: sh... moreCheck the LTE bands used by the network you're using. The K20 Pro/Mi9T Pro has a lot fewer bands than the other Global Mi phones like the 8 Pro and 9T/K20.
K20 Pro/Mi9T Pro is pretty much unusable on O2 in the UK, as it doesn't support O2's primary 4G band (800MHz). You'll only get 3G except in certain city centres.
The normal SD730-powered K20/Mi9T works fine, however, as it has the correct bands.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2019Mediocrity display and no global 4g "good" for 2018. For 2019 is just another mid-rangeYou have no grounds for claiming the display is mediocre, when it reproduces colors more accurately than even S10+ which manages an average DeltaE of 1.9
Another flagship, Hauwei P30, manages 1.8
Not bad results from the others mentioned, anything below 2 is plenty good enough, but the Poco is still better - if you want accurate colors that is. If unnatural colors is your goal then sure, the Poco can help there too, just use the Automatic contrast mode.
Current AMLOED is still a flawed technology and I'm anything but content with the AMOLED-panel from Samsung in my phone. The pentile matrix is just awful and the green tint is as well. Sammy, BOE etc need to start making proper RBG based (AM)OLED panels. They managed before (SGS2 and Moto X)
If you by global mean the US, I don't care. That's on the US, using bands no one else in the world uses. Blame your carriers instead, oh and suck it because in Europe, Asia etc it's brilliant :-)

SD845 - flagship of it's time
6-8GB RAM - flagship
up to 256 GB internal storage- flagship
1080p IPS (sharpness equivalent to QHD AMOLED due to pentile in AMOLED) with average DeltaE of 0.9 - flagship
Only the camera wasn't true flagship, but close to, especially with gcam.
Redmi should have used the F1 successor since it had made an impact in its release... shying away from its name is not a good strategy. Just saying...they should have made it F2.
