The newly-released Pocophone F1 is one of the most exciting smartphones we’ve seen in a few years. The device isn’t going to be winning any design awards any time soon, but the phone does take the prize for offering the best value in the flagship smartphone segment. The phone’s spec sheet matches that of the OnePlus 6, but its $349 price point is 33% cheaper than OnePlus’ latest offering. The only downside is that Xiaomi’s Pocophone F1 is officially only available in five markets across Asia (India, Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong and Indonesia) and two markets in Europe (France and Italy).
Fortunately, GearBest has the Pocophone F1 in stock for $349 and is willing to ship the device anywhere in the world. For that price, you’ll get the base model of the Pocophone F1 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. If you need more storage, the 128GB Pocophone F1 will set you back $385 which is still an incredible deal considering that the base model in Europe is going for €329 (roughly $385).
We’re not sure how long GearBest’s prices or inventory of the Pocophone F1 will last, but we suggest acting fast if you had your eye on the new device. OnePlus may have been the original “flagship killer,” but Xiaomi’s new Pocophone F1 is by far the best budget-friendly flagship device of 2018.
