Poco F1 available at its lowest price ever of Rs 15,999 for limited time but there's something you should know

The Poco F1 literally below everyone last year when Xiaomi announced that they are selling a phone for less than Rs 25,000 with a flagship Qualcomm chipset. The phone immediately became the only choice for gamers and performance enthusiasts on strict budget. It has been almost a year now and Xiaomi has been lowering the prices of the Poco F1 in between. Recently, there was another price cut and Xiaomi is now offering several discounts under the Independence Day sale going on in the country.

The Poco F1 is on sale in Amazon, Flipkart and at the recently revised prices and on top of that, Xiaomi is offering exchange deals that could get you the phone for Rs 2,000 less. The base variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage has been selling for Rs 17,999 and with the exchange bonus of Rs 2,000 included, you can get the phone for as low as Rs 15,999. This makes it a bargain deal.

Of course, you will have to have a handset in exchange that should offer you the value. If you have newer models from other manufacturers, the price could go down to as low as Rs 8,000. However, the standard exchange value remains at Rs 2,000.

Similarly, the other variants of the Poco F1 also enjoy the same price benefit. The mid-tier variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage after the exchange bonus will be available at Rs 16,999 whereas the top-end end variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage is available at 20,999 after the exchange bonus.

Does this offer make the Poco F1 a recommended buy now? Surely if all you seek is unmatched power to play games and run all apps under a budget of Rs 20,000. The Poco F1 with its Snapdragon 845 chipset is one of the most powerful phones in its class and it offers unmatched performance. Along with performance, the battery life is decent with a 4000mAh tank whereas the cameras are known to put up a decent show.

However, if you seek refinement, you should probably look at other alternatives from Xiaomi and other brands. The Realme X is a great option at this price whereas the Redmi K20 is decent f you are willing to cross the 20k mark.
