Xiaomi Poco F1 Review | Flagship killer

Xiaomi Poco F1 Review, the Flagship killer phone with ultimate specifications

Xiaomi has had a dream run within the few couple of years specially in India. We can gauge its reputation from the truth that in Q2,2018, top 4 out 5 best promoting smartphones in India were from Xiaomi (as according to IDC). But, in spite of a lot popularity, Xiaomi couldn’t gain the equal achievement with its flagships in India and that’s the sense why in previous few years Xiaomi has barely launched 2 smartphones above Rs 20,000 in India and each didn’t do fine for the company.

At the same time, some other chinese startup, OnePlus, took a similar online path as Xiaomi and fantastically hooked up a firm footing within the premium smartphone segment. With its new sub-brand Poco, Xiaomi mean to challenge OnePlus in its turf, ultimately.

Poco F1, initial smartphone the brand new Xiaomi brand Pocophone, too comes with a truly truly competitive price. It’s the cheapest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 smartphone within the globe that too by a huge margin (come to think about it, OnePlus as well began off at almost the equal price in India some years ago).

Can the Poco F1 compete the Asus Zenfone 5Z and OnePlus 6? let’s dig deeper to find out solutions in our Xiaomi Pocophone F1 review.

Xiaomi Poco F1 Review: Design and Build Quality

Xiaomi has handled to Poco pretty high-quality specifications for the price but it’s yet again slicing corners with the design. The Poco F1’s body is completely made from plastic and the handset clearly doesn’t encourage that premium view and feel as you’d get from other modern glass or metallic body smartphone.

The soft-touch kevlar back alternative feels surprisingly better in hands however the experience is unique to the premium-priced version.

Xiaomi’s sense behind apllying polycarbonate is that each one-glass body smartphones are extra fragile consequently public slap a case which hides their aesthetic attraction besides. metallic body, alternatively, way they need to compromise on both battery size or weight of the smartphone. But, with polycarbonate, they don’t need to cope with such issues and of course, it's far cheaper which allows them maintain the price of the smartphone within price range.

For a person whose task includes cycling via countless phones, we’d respectfully disagree. we're all in for a properly-designed polycarbonate body smartphone [Like, say, Vivo V9 and LG Q6, however the design and the way your smartphone appears and feels naked performs an vital task in distinguishing it and has an effect at the every day enjoy. Even while you slap a case on it.

Chunky bezels on each chin and forehead of the display don’t assist Poco F1’s case either. Xiaomi as well did a few saving via not choosing oleophobic coating and the display of the smartphone is a smudge magnet. Like iPhone X, the Poco F1 has a reasonably huge notch however all that area hasn’t been stick to waste. Xiaomi has used it nicely via in addition to an earpiece, selfie camera, IR emitter and receiver for facial recognition.

aside from that, there’s a SIM tray at the left, standard volume rocker and power on/off key at the right side, a speaker grills and USB type C port at the bottom and a 3.5 mm audio jack on upper side. The Poco F1 feels kind of heavy and weighs 186 grams with approximately 9mm waistline.

What all this indicates is that the Poco F1 phone is really no longer a head turner when it comes to design. In fact, opponents just like the Asus Zenfone 5Z and OnePlus 6 could better match the bill in that class. Even Nokia 7 Plus (overview) and Xiaomi’s Mi A2 (assessment) sense also more premium than Poco F1. Having said that, you may’t have all of it. The superb price that the base variants gives makes the design further than forgivable.

Xiaomi Poco F1 review: display

The Xiaomi Poco F1 sports a 6.18-inch display with 18.7:9 aspect ratio. It’s an IPS lcd panel which has 1080×2246 pixels resolution, a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and might attain 500nits brightness. Xiaomi is utilizing Gorilla Glass 3 safeguard to guard your screen from incidental scratches.


At default settings, the Poco F1 display gives nice colors and contrast. But, we observed the Poco F1 display seems a lot better ones we switched to more contrast and fiddled a bit with colors. Daylight legibility wasn’t a worried for us with this smartphone.

Xiaomi Poco F1 Review: Performance and Software

This gadget looks great as far as execution. In the smartphone you get the Snapdragon 845 chipset which has demonstrated the best Qualcomm chipset up until this point. To keep the display far better, you have been given 256 GB of UFS 2.1 capacity with 6GB/8GB RAM choice in F1.

Xiaomi guarantees here that this phone has been presented with Liquid Cooling Technology which can be seen just in Samsung's High End Phones S9 + and Note 9. With the assistance of this innovation, the gadget can fend off the warming from the issue. 
To test Poco's this cooling innovation, we played the PUBG game persistently for some time, whose designs and graphic settings were high. Amid this test, we didn't perceive any issue like frame drops and the whole time gaming background remained very great. We trust that the phone was extremely hot toward the finish of the test however it very may be ignored. Multitasking Experience likewise shows signs of improvement and there is no uncommon issue.

In Poco F1 you additionally get the facility of IR based Face Unlock with the fingerprint sensor. When setting up the Face ID, Xiaomi himself has said that Face Unlock is somewhat less dependable than fingerprint sensor and pin unlock.

Fingerprint sensor and face recognition are both quick yet the fingerprint sensor is speedier and more exact yet. Face Unlock now and again demonstrates some trouble in perceiving the face.

Presently we should discuss the product, here you keep running on MIUI 9.6 custom skin. Xiaomi has additionally rolled out a couple of improvements to the custom skin for its Poco F1, the most conspicuous among which is the Poco Launcher, which likewise gives you an app drawer. 
Above all else discuss Poco Launcher, Xiaomi has incorporated an app drawer in its MIUI skin while focusing on user input. Here you get an application drawer inspired by Google's pixel launcher, which likewise offers search bar and gesture support on the base.

Aside from this, you likewise get third-party icon pack support in Poco Launcher. Aside from these, there has been an adjustment in the quantity of couples who might love to utilize the phone. Aside from this, the product is the same as previously. We didn't care for the quantity of pre-introduced applications given in Pocophone F1 however they can be erased.

There is additionally a product bug in MIUI skin accessible in Poco that the company can settle through future programming refreshes. 

Xiaomi Poco F1 Review: Camera


The camera of Poco F1 is reminiscent of the Xiaomi Mi8, which was recently launched in China, which may before long be launched in India.

Optical picture adjustment isn't given in both front and back camera setup.

The camera application is given similarly as other MIUI based smartphones. The design of the application is very basic and simple. Notwithstanding changing the mode with life and right sliding on the screen, here you have given modes like flashlight, HDR and AI.

The camera of Poco F1 gives you a greatly improved execution in view of your cost. In Daylight, the gadget can tap on a superior picture with a decent powerful range, which looks very more honed on the screen. Once in a while the picture gets somewhat finished immersed yet Poco F1 is fit for conveying a superior picture with Auto HDR mode in low-light. The picture gone up against the night meets with a little noise and somewhat less deatails of interest.

Poco F1 likewise has a picture mode which, as per the value, works like our own. In a considerable measure of pictures, it enables the edges of the protest be appropriately obscured to the foundation. The 20MP selfie camera performs well and at this entryway we figured out how to get a decent selfie picture. We utilized a portion of the picture modes in the selfie camera and clicked that picture in the light, the picture was superior to our desires.


Xiaomi Poco F1 Review: Battery and Audio


Poco F1 has a huge battery of 4000mAh which is in excess of OnePlus 6 and Asus Zenfone 5Z. We have been utilizing this gadget for right around a week and once the battery did not baffle us at all. Indeed, even subsequent to utilizing gaming, web surfing, online networking applications, calling, media content in the smartphone, the gadget can serenely back one day.

To charge the greater battery rapidly, Xioami has additionally been given the Charger of 18W with Quick Charge 3.0 help here. Amid the test the gadget was energized to 40% in around 30 minutes.

Talking about the sound, the amplifier is set in the Poco phone F1 at the base and earpieces likewise give stereo impacts while filling in as a speaker. With Dirac HD sound help, this gadget gives a greatly improved sound yield as indicated by this value section. But, the output acquired by earpieces amid giving isn't great a role as we anticipate. 

Xiaomi Poco F1 Review: What will prove value for money device?

In Poco F1, you get a great deal of particular by cost. We trust that it isn't exceptionally alluring as OnePlus 6 or Asus Zenfone 5Z, yet keeping the detail as a mid-range smartphone, we will consider it a decent choice. Poco F1 gives you the best equipment, dependable camera setup and an incredible battery. These three things matter to the mid-run gadget that are accessible in Pocophone F1.

Taking a gander at such an alluring value, Xiaomi has fixed the intensity of the 20 to 30 thousand rupees, after which we can simply trust that the company can finish the supply with popularity.
