A few months on, has anyone picked up one of the newer Xiaomi models? Thinking about buying one of the poco F1's but there's so many different models i'm struggling to choose one!
Will be quality mate. Xiaomi do not make shit phones, all their gear (they make more than phones) is excellent quality.

I responded before reading your post, only read the first page. I have that phone. It's very good. If you use dual SIM, maybe get the 128gb version (if you keep a lot of music and photos on your phone).

my next phone is either the mi mix 3, or the mi 9 (struggling to pick which one, as they both look great pieces of kit, with their own advantages) I'm just waiting till they come down a touch in price, as they do fairly rapidly after a few months of release
I was looking at those two, but I managed to get the f1 pocophone from amazon from 275 - seemed like such a good price so just went for it, arrives tommorow.

the mi9 is 415 on eglobalcentral, it will drop again very soon, probs to 375, that's when I'll probably bite tbh

I've been an iPhone user for the past 7 years and I am amazed at how good this F1 is! I am so impressed and if it stays this fast and slick after several months of use I will most definitely stick with Xiaomi phones

I am looking for a dual sim phone for summer work travels. This will be a second phone so don't want to pay more than 150. Any suggestions from that eglobal site?

Pay a few quid extra and buy through Ebay or Amazon for ease of return if necessary.

Plenty of options out there in Android land.

I'm an Oukitel fan and my next one will be the K9

A bit more than you are looking at paying. Currently have the K8

I didn't realise there were any problems with that eglobal site? That phone looks excellent (199 USD)...but where would you be it from for ease of return?

Apologies, I just assumed eglobal were similar to the likes of Banggood and Gearbest, who are normally cheaper, but ship from the Far East and are the mercy of import duties and long delivery / return times.

There are a couple of other Oukitel users on here, but forget who they are.
I've got this one and had it for 15 months
6'' Oukitel K8 4GB 64GB Dual Sim Smartphone Android 8.0 13MP 8 Core Face iD 5000 6971078303215 | eBay

Not a pick of bother and the only reason I'm getting a new one is simply fancy a change.

hoping it lasts until the mi a3 is out which should be shortly. plenty other Xiaomi options but i can't get away with mi ui

got the huawei Psmart 2019 model in january/feb time and ts a cracking phone for 200 notes. only niggle i have is the speakers aren`t the best quality when higher volume but with lugbuds or connected to the car like i usually have it its great. memory is upgradeable as well with sd card unlike apples that i`ve had

I got the Huawei honor 8x and it more than does for me, lovely phone for about 170quid. The missus got a Huawei nova 3 for 100quid in a flash sale and it's superb
