  • If only it came with the five dollar wireless charging addition, that is such a letdown in 2021 as I have basically not plugged in my phone since I pulled it out of the box! (besides hooking it up to debug over USB, practically all charging happens wirelessly)

    • It is just convenient, I've got a charging plate next to my bed and next to my TV and I just put the phone on it whenever. The charging is pretty fast, fast enough for me as I don't use my phone when I'm at home?

Everything is great to ok(camera dept is just ok for the pricing) Also I didn't get bracelets , everything else yeah. pfft. Plus I didnt see 4gb versions in India, theres only 6 gb versions here(64 and 128)

  • Motorola phones are great products for budget phones too. I bought a G7 Power a year and a half ago and it works wonderfully. USB-C charging, headphone jack, decent camera, decent speakers, not lagging at all and a battery life of a day and a half without battery saving mode on.

    • @Thicc Noodles well i use it for the same things and im a competitive player soo i spend 6-10 hours daily grinding and im the heaviest user among my family and friends . I think your brother's phone is not fully setted up and maybe e uses third party apps and stuff and there are soo many other things to consider soo its hard without seeing whats the problem but i just wanna say i haven't had any problems with this device

      SpikeSpike29 gün önce
    • @Thicc Noodles by twicking i meant customising i turned off and lowered some unnecessary settings and that did the trick its dosent heat up performance is smooth its faster and im 1000% sure it doesn't harm the phone and i have a relative who has the poco m3 and mine is clearly better in comparison

  • Very bad viewing angles on Poco, i had to return it back to the store because of that. Shame. Touch screen is very quick. Speakers are decent with clear highs and stronge midrange but lack of bass. S9 plus is more meaty with nicer bass but with slightly less volume. When charging and watching TRmore or playing games Poco gets hot pretty well but nothing dramatic. I dont mess with one speaker sistem smartphones for two years. Only stereo is the way. 🤗👍
