Interesting price point.. 

Is it worth buying this model for OIS camera?  Any drawbacks? OS updates? Read about poor battery life in other comments.. so not really worth it?

One of the best mobile I ever bought. Mine is a 12GB/256 GB Model. Bought at ₹ 27,028 during the Big BIllion Days (Flipkart).


2 Years warranty is 🍒 on the 🎂 as said @KhannaG


Dolby ATMOS/Vision, 4k video recording, and inbuilt vlogger templates for video recording with sound effects are some of the prime features.


Not experienced any lag. Fluid UI.

One should avoid nothing phone and redmi note 12 series considering their price which is not at par with their respective processors..

SD 870 is much better in my view.

Key criteria - basic phone functionality, 5G bands supported, camera for low light/indoor photos of kids..

  • I don't know much about Nothing phone. However, Poco has a decent primary camera. The selfie camera is good but not as decent as the primary camera.
  • You can count on the primary camera for the night shoot. It won't displease you.
  • Talking about warranty, Poco comes with a 2-year warranty, whereas the Nothing phone carries a 1-year warranty.
  • Processor: Poco has a Snapdragon 870 chip vs 778+ of Nothing phone. SD 870 is 28% faster than SD 778+
  • Nothing phone has not launched any new phone in the last 6 months. So, I am pretty doubtful about their future endeavor.
  • My Solapur city is still waiting for 5G. So no comments about 5G from my side.
  • WiFi reception and transmission are decent. Poco F4 can be used as a WiFi extender.
  • Poco F4 is my 4th phone from the Xiaomi family. (Redmi 3, Redmi 4 Prime, Redmi Note 7 Pro). No phone ever visited the support center. One phone was sold. Three phones are still in use.

SnapDragon 870 is the real performer here.. All Amoled screen phones consume lots of battery.. but fast charging takes care of it.

Additional benefit is 2 years of manufacturers warranty!

.. every user has it's own set of requirements & priorities..

Someone buys mobile for camera.. Others for processor and gaming etc..

Also UI has improved a lot over the past years. .

As per my understanding, redmi / Xiaomi/ poco uses same UI.

So this poco f4 phone becomes value for money at this price point!

Very useful review.. I had a similar experience..!

This poco f4 with 8gb RAM might sustain another 3-4 years easily, without getting obsolete in terms of updates/ RAM etc.

It's about preference , for a normal user 870 and 778 won't show any difference. It will matter if playing games or doing intensive tasks. Poco and redmi k series focus more on processor and specs whereas redmi note is more balanced overall.

Absolutely it's all about preference dear, as I earlier said.

As far as normal user is concerned they can avoid all such mobiles, as there are other much cheaper phones having separate segment altogether.
Which can serve their purpose very well and can be value for money for them!

It depends on your requirements brother, avoid moto edge as per my view.

Poco f4 has side fingerprint scanner.

Neo6 has inscreen fingerprint scanner.. With additional price.

I'm not a Nothing fanboy and just playing devil's advocate here.

Are you aware why Poco is giving 2yr warranty while every other brand (even flagships) is giving only 1yr? It is because of high number of hardware issues in recent Poco models, so they had to increase the warranty period to convince the customers. Individual experiences of facing issues may vary.

"doubtful about their future endeavor" seriously? instead of launching new model every month like most other brands, they seems to focus on improving existing model via multiple software updates (from what I can see in recent months, heard the same by GeekyRanjit as well). Even Apple launch their iPhones once a year and initially when they started, they didn't have lot of models.

Your understanding is correct bro.. But this poco f4 has global ROM / updates, so they want to convince customers with less chance of hardware/ software failure.
