When you buy a phone, you don't want it to fall apart even if it's a "budget" device. The Pocophone F1 costs a mere $300-ish and comes with top-of-the-line internals. Did Xiaomi cut some corners in the build to keep the price low? As usual, YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has sacrificed a phone to find out.
