Is it the Poco M5s? They put the price as $400+... that abt covers the price for 2 sets... unless they change the price on 11.11...

Oh u've used/tried it before? Is it this phone or Redmi Note 10s that u've tried before (as u know one is a rebrand of the other)? The Note 10s has a big flaw... when u play any video on it... there is over-sharpening of the picture. Did the phone u tried have this problem?

Used the note 10s extensively, no such problem. Screen is really subjective opinion, you won't expect a top grade oled panel for a sub 200 phone right? You compare it to other brands which still gives you a 720p LCD phone with snail micro-usb charging

No.. it's not I say one... is in the gsmarena review and also in some Youtube reviews.. one of them mentioned that the over-sharpening and over-saturation of the pic is like wat u see on those cheapo LCD tvs on display at the shops haha... but maybe since those reviews were posted... there have been firmware updates that could have solved the problem... did u update it since u got it?

The so-called "over-sharpening and overcontrast" is caused by the inbuilt mediatek miravision video decoding, no way to turn it off with a button but there are ways to tweak or disable for control freaks in XDA forums.

So do u experience that effect on the video pic quality on ur set? As u know... gsmarena does reviews of watever phone when it's just launched so when they did it for this phone, they said hopefully when it receives firmware update/s in the future... the problem will be solved...

$299 for 2 6/128 Poco M5s is pretty good leh... about $150 per phone... but I think very limited sets lar... must camp at 00.00 11.11 to get a set I guess...

No, I find it perfectly alright. This kind of technical jargons like what over-saturated over contrast don't really matter to layman phone users. Core components of everyday usage - smooth interface of apps, fast charging and enough battery juice are the crux, nitpicking opinated details are sometimes irrelevant part of online reviews, especially for a cheap budget phone. You want those fine details, plenty of $1000-$2000 phones to fine-tune in the market

I'm sure gsmarena reviewers know their stuff... after all they do reviews for all types of phones whether it's entry-level... mid-range or high-end. U can't say that this fault with the Note 10s is irrelevant and is just technical jargon and nitpicking opinated details... this is substantiated by the fact that the problem is actually caused by the mediatek video decoding... u said it urself... didn't u? As I have also said... they are not the only online reviewers who have said this.. even Reddit has layman users griping over this particular problem on their sets.

And this is not just "fine details"... having a phone screen that shows realistic visuals is very much an integral part of a phone... especially when viewing videos on like Youtube are a "core component of everyday usage" for some ppl..............

If you wish to take those gsmarena users opinions as gospel, I am fine with it. I am just sharing what I see as a user of this model.
