Reasons Why Not to Buy Poco F1: 

#1. Plastic Body:

If you’re the one like me who likes to use phone naked then this device isn’t made for you. It is made of the plastic body and doesn’t look that good. Apart from the look, build of the device is really good.

#2. Wide Notch & Huge Chin

The notch is to big, when they are giving fingerprint sensor, there is no need of face unlock in my opinion. But they went for that and placed infrared sensor in that notch. The notch looks really ugly and the bottom and side bezel is also huge.

#3. No OIS

There is no optical image stabilisation for the videos. If you are planning to shoot videos with this device then this might be deal breaker. But take a note that it does have electronics image stabilisation which uses software to stabilise the footage.

#4. No NFC

As this device is made for the Indian market and not yet launched in global. There is no NFC support. As most of the Indian user doesn’t even uses NFC but if you’re one who uses NFC on daily basis you better avoid this device.

#5. Poor Low Light Images: 

It has 12MP + 5MP rear camera at the back which is great in day time, gives average result but in night time, It isn’t that great. Considering it’s price range it gives good result tho.
