POCO X3 NFC

This new phone from Pocphone looks to be a bargain.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001...5cbf4c4dNh3X3V

I have a Pocophone F1, which is just coming up to two years old which I'd been thinking of replacing. I had been thinking of holding off for a 5G handset, but the added cost to the handsets was putting me off. That, and the takeup of 5G here isn't great. And my network (gomo) doesn't officially support it!

I've ordered it from Spain to Parcel Motel (went for the 128 GB) version, so hopefully it won't be long before I have it.

Sorry, it was one of those automatically applied ones, for playing some game on their site. Got 8 euro off or something, which was nice.

This might help you.

That was a thought, but from what I've seen so far, 5g isn't widespread, and when it is available, it's not life changing speed. I'm also currently with gomo, and trying 48. No 5g with either, so thought there was little point in forking out twice as much for 5g.

If someones buying a phone today purely because it has a 5G chip in it, then they really need to ask themselves - Why.
