Xiaomi Launches Pocophone F1 $300 Phone w/ Snapdragon 845!

Today, Xiaomi launches Pocophone F1, an Android smartphone with latest Snapdragon 845 processor that starts at just $300 USD.   Expected to release on August 29th next week, the Pocophone F1 gives you performance of a flagship phone at 1/3 the cost!  Pocophone F1 has 2 rear cameras, a 12MP F1.9 and 5MP F2.0 depth sensor along with a 20MB F2.0 front camera.  Interestingly Xiaomi has cut down on the cost of its screen by utilizing the older Gorilla Glass 3, which I think is actually great idea if it can cut down on price.   It does feature an 18.7:9 ratio 1080×2246 pixel IPS LCD screen, which may be the ultimate deciding factor for some of you who want a good screen.  Pocophone F1 also has a whopping 4,000mAh battery along with Quick Charge 3.0, which should prove great for those who need all-day battery life.  The back is covered by cheap, polycarbonate material, cutting down the prices further.

eBay Smartphone Scams! – DO NOT BUY AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon Phones on eBay!

Probably the biggest smartphone scam that’s been going around for at least the last 10 years is on eBay is people buying phones on carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon then claim insurance on them(so they get a new phone for free) after 3-6 months after you buy the phone.  The reason why this scam works is because eBay itself ONLY guarantees you for 30-days at maximum(if seller does) and by the time your phone is blacklisted 3 to 6 months later, eBay is no longer responsible for the blacklisted phone.  It is actually the perfect scammer for scammers out there but if you are just trying to get a brand, new phone for a bit cheaper then buying at the stores, you may end up paying hundred of dollars more.
