123pi, 15 Dec 2020Oh! Have you tried it? Is it that bad? I ordered as a gift, i dong wanna be embarrassedFor normal use, it's fine. And firmware updates already improving the app switching lag. Besides, it is decent for gaming with the stereo speakers.
Alex 94, 14 Dec 2020Realme is much better deal. Dont be folish with this battery, stereo speakers or full hd scree... moreI suggest you use a Realme before commenting. For example the Realme 6's 90Hz display has ghosting problem, dim brightness and RealmeUI still buggy after updates. Price-wise Realme only cheap in India but price increase in other countries. Realme 7i is MYR999 while Poco M3 is MYR699 in Malaysia. That is MYR300 ($74) difference for a phone using same processor.
123pi, 15 Dec 2020Oh! Have you tried it? Is it that bad? I ordered as a gift, i dong wanna be embarrassedNever tried it since it's only available online. It's not even my ideal phone since I mainly target the SD700 or SD800 series SoC for myself.
Markuss, 15 Dec 2020maybe you got that price in resellers, that's too much, the price should range to 100 to ... moreNot resellers, just regular stores.
Same stores that sell the X3 for €219 (because except the cery first week, it's price was never €199)
I'm really surprised on how it looks on hand. It looks and feel so bulky. Kinda weird coz the official photos doesn't look like it.
Finally a review that actually mentions that the audio is recorded in mono with a 96Kbps bitrate which is frankly terrible even for a budget device.
Perhaps GSM Arena could start including this information as standard on all their reviews. You delve tooth and nail into video and photo resolution but frequently fail to talk about the audio quality.
What's the point in reviewing all these fancy phones but then not mention the audio quality? Great video with shabby audio is a major miss for me.

That is still sd675.

"Ads are baked into some system apps - this is usually done to lower the phone's cost. We saw ads most often in the Security and Themes app, as well as part of the embedded virus scanner which pops up every time you install an app."
That's the reason why the phone is so cheap. Even Mrwhosetheboss said the same thing before. If I got this phone, the very first thing I would do is install a custom ROM. Really not impressed with the MIUI's overall look.
Look at slow charging speed ... Almost 3 hours for 0 to 100% ... Worst thing is this & ruined its charm
It could have been perfect with stock Android and an ultrwide camera
Nice camera, tiny bit sharper than my S8+ but this can't shoot 60fps which is huge to me.
It is really affordable and nice hardware but I'd rather save to get the X3 than regret/kicking myself all the time for being too cheap and getting this.
