Xiaomi Pocophone F1 launch 1

Any links to online stores should be assumed to be affiliates. The company or PR agency provides all or most review samples. They have no control over my content, and I provide my honest opinion.

The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is the cheapest Snapdragon 845 phone on the market, offering flagship performance for mid-range prices. Unfortunately for the past few months, there has been no official UK stock with all the options being via grey imports either from Amazon or Gearbest and the like.

This all changes today and Xiaomi officially launch in the UK. The launch event is not until 2 pm but that has not stopped Amazon from listing Pocophone F1.

Sadly the phone has gone up in price from my best original post with the best Pocophone deals, with the phone now costing £329.99 on Amazon compared to £299 previously. However previously this was via a marketplace seller, and now it is dispatched from and sold by Amazon. This means you will get the superb customer service and returns policy Amazon has to offer along with Prime delivery options.

They also have the 128GB model in stock for £349.00.

Interestingly the page I linked to now does not appear to be any marketplace sellers offering the phone, so it looks like Amazon have removed these.

The base model of this phone comes with:

  • 6.18 inches, 96.2 cm2 (~82.2% screen-to-body ratio) running at 1080 x 2246 pixels, 18.7:9 ratio (~403 ppi density)
  • Snapdragon 845
  • 6 GB RAM and 64 GB Storage
  • Android 8.1 Oreo
  • 4000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0
  • Dual rear camera with 12 MP/5MP
  • Single front camera with 20MP
  • This does NOT have NFC so no Google Pay

It is also worth noting that you can get this phone from GearBest for just £245.83 however returns and warranty options are poor at best.
