Try reading again the earlier part of my reply. The later part mentioned another rant against Xiaomi and other China based phones: when they do offer micro sd expansion, especially for lower end or midrange models, they can't be encrypted at all! It's a half baked, half-hearted effort towards giving users what they really want.

Anonymous, 25 Oct 2020I do not know why XIAOMI does not put memory cards on higher class phones?
I will never buy a... moreBecause like Google, Xiaomi offers cloud services with monthly subscription.
Buyers of more expensive phones like the Poco F2 Pro can afford additional expenses so Xiaomi likely decided to remove micro sd expansion in flagship phones so their 'can afford' owners will be forced to subscribe to Xiaomi's cloud services.
Also, even with some Xiaomi phones like the lower priced Redmi Note 9 Pro offering micro sd expansion, MIUI does not allow micro sd storage encryption. It's probably Chinese government dictated as all China based phones (Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo) don't allow micro sd storage encryption. That's what I mean when I say I have 'lingering doubts' with security backdoors for Xiaomi, Huawei and other China based phones (Oppo/Vivo).

Xiaomi 4Eva, 16 Jul 2020That's so true. The only positive aspect about the SE is that it gets 5 years of updates.... moreActually that is a negative. It's already outdated, imagine what it will be like in 5 years time.

I will never buy a phone without memory card. This seems an acceptable device, but lack of memory card = NO GO. Their Redmi series up to note 8 pro were ok, but they lack amoled. Redmi note 9 pro is crap...hope Redmi note 10 pro will not be another disappointment.

It is only 60 fps

Don't waste your money on high refresh rate phones. Better spend them instead on high refresh rate monitors. You'll see better payback and real benefits there than in small phone screens that get disposed off in 2 years time.

Find a phone that meets your needs and go for it..
Trying to buy a phone in this price range, should I just buy this or wait for some phones coming soon? I mostly play games, and a 90 hz refresh rate would be nice. I checked out x2 pro but its design and UI isnt my fav. Thanks.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2020I've been using Poco F2 Pro for a month+ now. Here's my review.
== Pros ==
See, ... moreLow light photos are excellent on this phone with GCam with Night Sight. Go back a few pages for the recommended settings and download the latest GCam by Urnyx:
begjay, 20 Oct 2020Pls can anyone advice me with phone to buy between Xiaomi mi 9 pro and Samsung galaxy note 9 a... moreThe Samsung Note 9 is a great phone during its era but it's no longer recommended to buy an old flagship that is end of life and end of software support. The Poco F2 Pro is much better in terms of battery, screen, processor and video and photo quality. Just install GCam with Night Sight and you'll see it performs so much better than the Note 9. As for the Mi 9 Pro, it's newer than the Samsung, but still, it's behind the Poco F2 Pro in specs and features and costs more so it doesn't really make sense settling for older flagships unless you can save a lot and get them much cheaper than the Poco F2 Pro.
begjay, 20 Oct 2020Pls can anyone advice me with phone to buy between Xiaomi mi 9 pro and Samsung galaxy note 9 a... moreGet Mi 9 Pro, it has an Amoled screen and the best camera. And of course really good specs
begjay, 20 Oct 2020Pls can anyone advice me with phone to buy between Xiaomi mi 9 pro and Samsung galaxy note 9 a... moreIt depends on your preference. But don't buy the Mi 9 Pro anyways.
I would suggest Samsung Note 9 has an excellent QuadHD Display, Stylus, SD Card Slot, IP Rating, Wireless Charging, Stereo Speakers and even a better camera than F2 Pro.
Considering F2 Pro, the major features are the full-screen display and Snapdragon 865. Also, F2 Pro has a higher 4700mAh Battery.
Galaxy Note 9 is a good choice unless you need a Higher Batter or Faster UFS 3.1 Storage.
Also notice that the Note 9 software support is ended. It has already got 2 major android updates and won't get Android 11.
While, F2 Pro comes with Android 10 out of the box. I'm pretty sure it will get Android 13 too.
Pls can anyone advice me with phone to buy between Xiaomi mi 9 pro and Samsung galaxy note 9 and Poco f2 pro pls I need serious advice
I've been using Poco F2 Pro for a month+ now. Here's my review.
== Pros ==
See, I play Ultra HD in PUBG with the highest framerate, this phone does peek, scope, drop shoot, jump spray shoot, aim, aim with peek, spray while shooting faster and smoother than any device I have used. I can only compare it to playing PUBG on a super high-end PC with Emulator.
And, there's this thing about the Gaming Turbo that boost your network latency and speed. For example, when connected to a low latency network, everyone would get a latency of like 150ms+, I get half of that! Worse, 98ms. This is insane! The game turbo feature sort of directs all network to the game.
Finally, the touch responsiveness is legendary. I have a high-end iphone and I can tell this F2 Pro is much more responsive. Let me paint a scenario, when you scroll down the menu or in a game, you can click your screen more than ten times in one second and it will all be recorded! This feature is of tremendous advantage in a competitive game like PUBG.
And finally finally, I connect this device to my 4k Nanocell Retina TV. It is smoother than sliding on oil. PS, my SSD, 16GB RAM, 8 processors PC is glitchy on my 4k tv.
Bro, the perfomance of this phone and the optimisations the engineers did is insane!
== Con ==
This device is not really a "mobile phone". It is a gaming device. The phone call app etc has minor bugs worthy of mention which makes it hard to be a functional mobile phone.
The four cameras takes super clean pictures but its horrible when taking pictures at night. The flashlight is worse than a sodium lamp! iPhone 6 has brighter flash than this device.
== Conclusion ==
If you don't mind the "bright" flashlight and buggy phone calls. If all you need is a high-end device, that doesn't cook your palm with heat like iphones plus an extremely HQ OLED, duper responsive display. Pick this phone. Forget the DOG phone.
If they make a Poco F3 Pro, I'd be the first to buy it. Voila amigo/a :)

As for the version, they are definitely different from region to region, but you can get an officially ulocked version (global, not locked to a region or provider). Furthermore, the specs vary too – otherwise gsmarena wouldn't have listed two different RAM sizes.
Is there differnt versions of pocco f2 pro avaible for differnt regions countrys etc .or is it just one version for global market.im in ireland looking to buy one off ebay
