Poll results: 39% will go for the Pocophone, 62% didn't settle for doing the math
As the OnePlus 6T was getting unveiled on the 29th of October, Xiaomi's sub-brand Pocophone didn't waste any time to try and take the limelight. Outside the OnePlus event in India, Poco was giving out free calculators and picketing the tagline "Do the math". Taking a look at the company's Twitter account, we can see what all that is about — a bunch of messages, showing us that the Pocophone F1 has all the features of the OnePlus 6T, but for a fraction of the cost. So, that's the match that needs doing, it seems.

Well... There are a bunch of reasons to prefer one phone over the other for sure. We are not sure how this particular guerilla marketing campaign would affect Poco sales. But we thought we'd ask you — which phone would you buy? Here are our poll results, do the math.

Pocophone F1 or OnePlus 6T?

Pocophone, of course... I did the math!
38.82%
Pft... OnePlus 6T!
61.18%

Oh come on now, it's called poor rounding.

Just making a joke. I do like the title very much - it was clever because the name of the other device is an algebra equation.

What's wrong with the math? Even rounding it's still 61+39=100

See, I did the math, and the pocophone doesn't support US LTE bands, otherwise I'd have one already

It’s a win for pocophone...when they make a global phone with global release plan...it’d give tough competition to 1+

Poco is a great phone, but users beware. The following issues are widely reported: 1) Terrible backlight bleeding. 2) Poor color gamut. 3) No widevine support. Netflix / Amazo prime runs at 540p. For those who are not bothered by these issues, Poco has a headphone jack , 4000mAh battery(no idea about the real world battery life between the two) , ad more durable(but arguably less premium) a huge price advantage and the same chipset and RAM (which is an advantage given the same price). OnePlus has the better software, camera and display.

Pocophone's camera is no where near even my OnePlus 5T and huge ugly chin makes things worse
