Xiaomi Pocophone F1, a smartphone with all the flagship grade specification except the build quality, and Design. In the month of August Xiaomi launched this device with an aim to provide a Flagship performance at a Budget Pricing. Pocophone F1 got some great coverage all around the globe, still, something was missing. Everyone was complaining about the Plastic build quality which looks and feel like a budget device of 10,000 Rupees/$150. But, at the price point of around $300, Xiaomi Pocophone was totally worth, and acceptable.
Now, its been almost 2 months since Pocophone is launched, many users around the globe are complaining about the very bad build quality of Pocophone. It’s mainly a matt plastic body phone, which prone lot’s of scratches. It is not pretty and attractive as other flagships like OnePlus 6, Asus Zenfone 5Z, Samsung Flagships, Vivo/Oppo phones. Basically, Xiaomi is not a design-centric brand, so most of the phones are not so attractive, and good looking. Which makes sense why Pocophone was featuring a decent build quality.

Give your first priority to build quality and design. Performance is something which you can adjust with, or use to of the same performance, but in terms of build quality and design, you have to spend on hard case covers, tempered glass, and other kinds of stuff.
