I have to say, the battery is fantastic. Getting around 4 days out of it on average and it charges via its own charger in 60 mins.

All the adverts are turned off in the UK model and easy enough to turn off in the international one- but slightly painful that they're there at all.
There's a "taken by poco" watermark on pics, but you can turn it off too.

Otherwise I've no real complaints.
I wish it had image stabilization on the camera mind you.

I read about the ads, but as you said, at least they can be turned off.
That's literally been the only bad thing I have read about the phone.

It's down to 212 today.

Yes I'm really happy with it. It's snappy, feels solid, has plenty options in every regard. The ads etc are no issue once turned off. Other than image stabilization, there really is nothing it's missing and so far I haven't found that an issue. I'm getting 4 days out of the battery and it only takes 1 hr to charge!

If you buy on amazon you can return within 28 days if you don't like it, but I'd be sure you will like it.

It comes with a clear jelly case. It's grand, I just hate clear cases as I find they get really dirty.

Thinking of pulling the trigger on this just one question if someone could help me with.
I will be coming from a Note 7. Since its a xioami phone. Can I synch all my apps from my note to the poco?
TIA

Still haven't got my X3!

Soooooo this is a salutary tale for people looking to save a bit of cash like I was.

1. Ordered phone on 22nd September from Gearbest using PayPal - always, ALWAYS use PayPal if you're not sure of the vendor.
Almost a month later, no sign of the phone. Contacted Gearbest and requested a refund and amazingly they refunded me within 24 hours.

2. Decided to order the phone from EGlobal central, was told in tracking that my phone was being despatched on the 20th October. 10 days later and according to the tracking "We apologise for the delay, we are following up your order to get it delivered to you as soon as possible" I'm smelling yet another rat here, and if it has arrived by MOnday I'm requesting a refund.

I can't believe I've ordered it TWICE and it still hasn't arrived!
I seriously object to Amazon's work practices so I try to avoid ordering from them, hence my looking for other vendors.
The Irish Xiaomi site is ridiculously expensive so now I'm looking to order from somewhere else once I get my refund.

Anybody got any recommendations as to where to buy the 128gb Blue version?
Also is everyone who got it pleased with it still?
Thanks so much for any help in advance!
