Personally I would go from the pocophone, it has a much faster SOC and will last for longer because of it being completely unlocked (bootloader and ROM wise), the A70 has a better AMOLED screen though if you don't care about unlocked bootloaders. Other than that, the battery life on A70 might be a bit better.  I would recommend using Pixel Experience or another AOSP based ROM on the pocophone if it works with your carrier.

The A70 unless you really need raw performance or dont want a phablet. The big near bezel-less OLED screen and 4,500mAh battery are big draws, and combine to offer truly impressive battery life. The A70 also uses a Snapdragon chipset, so its only time before it gets community mod and custom rom support. That is if it matters to you at all.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Damm, i really cant decide > : (

Which one would last longer (quality/support wise) 

What phone are you currently using and what are your major complaints about it?

What about the phone do you think is the most important?

Will you be rooting or use custom roms?
