Since apparently Xiaomi desided to remove MicroSD from all of their newer devices right when I was planning to upgrade, I might have to go with this, instead of Note 12 Pro as I was planning to. Sad, but it is what it is.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2023Good phone but one major downside
A 60 hz led is still acceptable to me. But... moreWhile the switch from OLED to LCD tech is a downgrade by all means, I prefer LCD screens to OLED screens.
I'm a light mode boy but I also like long battery life and since Dark Mode saves battery life on OLED screens, I'm kinda forced to use it.
Having an LCD screen means the back light stays on even when the picture is completely black, so dark mode has no effect on battery life on LCD screens. That means that I can use light mode without compromising on battery life like I would on an OLED. That's why I prefer LCD's.
For $160, this is a no fuss 5G phone with performance to match >$200 phones using SD695 and Dimensity 920. It would be better if it comes with stereo speakers and ultrawide cam, but most phones in the same price segment and even above are not including those 2 features as well.
justasmile, 06 Aug 2023It's half the price though.Plus with new soc will fly. People dont understand how big impact soc have on Xiaomi devices.
No 8/256 option for the poco
rizki1, 05 Aug 2023what's wrong with rebranding? almost all brands do it, this phone will sell millions and ... moreThen give me one advantage of rebranding instead of releasing it globally. I bet you can't list any more than 1 (not good) advantage.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2023Maybe u want 6/128gb for 20$.That's not what I want.
What I'm trying to say is that Poco increased the price of its rebranded Redmi 12 5G.

The M4 Pro 5G is a better overall phone than this, but that doesn't make this phone bad value at all, it's just simply not an upgrade over a 2 generation old phone from the same line of phones.
You managed to misunderstand me as well, which is your problem not mine.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2023Why is iphone sinonim for most expensive phone, where u can find more expensive android models... moreI own an iPhone and Android phone as my daily drive 🙄 Nintendo Switch for mobile gaming, Mac Studio for work (I work from home a.k.a home office), iPad mini for entertainment and work, don't use Apple Watch or any smartwatch just basic fitness band, Canon EOS R5 for work and hobby, custom made Window PC for gaming and stuff, Linux as server and another computer running Unix. I don't own a car, just a motorcycle and live in countryside. My house is not big not too small and stand on my own land. Am I rich to you?? 🤦🏻♂️
P/S: I'm not, but I work my @$$ hard save money to buy the things that is useful to me and don't buy unnecessary things.
Good phone but one major downside

So it's inferior to the Poco M4 Pro 5G from 2 years ago as well as being yet another re-badged phone? God smartphone market is dumb nowadays

And I'm glad other people in this same comment section have called you out on it. But since they're disagreeing with you all you can think of is "you misunderstood me!", hilarious lmao.
