Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Review

Xiaomi Pocophone F1The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is an exceptional phone in various ways. Most strikingly, the way it offers a premium set of specs for a frankly outrageous price. It's one of the cheapest phones around with the flagship Snapdragon 845 processor and also has a large battery, decent cameras and plenty more. All this comes in an attractive design, even if it isn't the most svelte around. It might seem like Xiaomi is following in the footsteps of Honor which is sub-brand of Huawei, but Jai Mani, Head of Product at Pocophone, says that’s not the case here.

The phone doesn’t have a Mi version it’s based on and the link to Xiaomi is no secret. Mani says it’s like being a startup but without all the big issues new tech companies face. Jai Mani also says it’s like being a startup but without all the big issues new tech companies face. Pocophone F1: price and mentioned earlier, it’s no secret that Pocophone isn’t it’s own thing. that’s why the subtle words ‘by Xiaomi’ are printed on the back of the device.

GSM / HSPA / LTE type of network has available for this  Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Smartphone. The Pocophone also has decent connectivity with Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi Direct, a 3.5 mm jack, a USB Type-C port and an FM Radio. Unfortunately, the device lacks an NFC chip, so you cannot use the Pocophone with Google Pay among other NFC-related services. The USB Type-C port supports USB 2.0 speeds and USB On-The-Go (OTG) for connecting peripherals. The Pocophone cannot output video to an external monitor over a wired connection though.

Xiaomi Pocophone F1Design and Display
The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 looks and feel rather conventional. We were clearly not expecting Note 9-like dimensions of structure refinement, however, the F1 misses the mark contrasted with rivals in its value extend, and even some less expensive choices.
The sentiment of inexpensiveness to a great extent returns from the polycarbonate back of the device. It isn't so much that it's terrible or feeble, a long way from it. The completion of the dark grey (Graphite Black) version mimics metal quite well, yet the F1 certainly feels less premium than the OnePlus 6 or Honor 10. On the other side, the plastic back should toll better when dropped, regardless of whether it will scratch and wear quicker than glass.

In the event that you'd like something somewhat fancier, you should investigate the best Pocophone F1 variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of capacity. Called "Armored Edition", this model comes with a made of Kevlar texture that takes after the Motorola Droid Razr from a couple of years ago. It's the only version we would feel certain utilizing without a case, as it feels very tough and the additional grasp is consoling. The Kevlar model is only available in black.

All models come with a thin aluminum frame, with the power and volume buttons set on the right side. The buttons are a little thin for comfort, but they are crisp, responsive, and easy to reach. The round fingerprint sensor on the back is also easily reachable. Pocophone F1 has a big notch on the front. Unlike other devices though, the F1’s notch feels out of place due to the thick bezels at the top and bottom. It feels like Xiaomi slapped a notch on an older phone design it had lying around, just to try and look cool. The heavily rounded corners make the bezels even more visible.

The Pocophone F1 Comes with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display, featuring 1080 x 2246 pixels (18:9) of resolution. At 416dpi, the pixel density is high enough to make pixels unnoticeable. Colors are nice and punchy, though OLED would’ve obviously got you better contrast rates and viewing angles. The only minor issue worth noting is outdoors legibility – at full brightness, text can be a little smudgy. The Pocophone F1 does not have always-on display functionality. You can, however, double tap the screen to wake it up, which is always great to see.

Xiaomi Pocophone F1Camera
Proceeding onward with our Pocophone F1 review, the back camera on this phone is a precarious thing. In theory, it sounds extraordinary – a double camera setup containing a 12MP main camera and a 5MP secondary one for profundity data. Practically speaking, execution is conflicting.  In most cases, especially in good lighting conditions outdoors, the Pocophone F1 manages to take some brilliant shots with a good amount of detail. The portrait mode too is close to perfect, with excellent edge detection. Xiaomi has almost cracked portrait modes on budget and mid-range smartphones, as we saw in the Redmi Note 5 Pro or the Mi A2.

However, in tricky lighting conditions not necessarily low light  the overexposure and white balance mess up, resulting in botched images. The shots look highly saturated in most cases, which is usually how we like it. Lot of times, we don’t care about good color reproduction as much as we do about fantastic Instagram ready shots. But with the F1, there’s too much color saturation sometimes, like when you will clicking flowers or food, and that’s not a good thing. The 20MP front camera uses Xiaomi’s pixel binning technology to combine data from four individual pixels. The selfies will serve fine for social media posts, but won’t blow you away.Overall, the cameras on Pocophone F1 fare well. They’re solid, but not exceptional, which is fair for a smartphone in this price segment, but looks disappointing only because Xiaomi promises the world in its marketing.

Operating System
The Pocophone F1 runs Android 8.1 Oreo, with Xiaomi's exclusive UI layer, MIUI 9.6. However, since Pocophone is a separate sub brand, there's a Poco Launcher on top of MIUI. Indeed, MIUI over Android, and Poco Launcher on top of MIUI. There are some important think about this phone also runs with all three versions feature the Snapdragon 845 processor 10nm octa-core with Adreno 630 GPU.

Storage and Ram
The Pocophone F1 will be available in three memory-storage combinations: 6GB/64GB, 8GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB.

At the last things about this Xiaomi Pocophone F1, As Xiaomi promised, the Pocophone F1 is all about speed. If you care primarily about having the best performance or you want to make sure your phone will stay fast for several years, then it’s very hard to beat the Pocophone for the money. If you’re looking for performance and a battery that keeps you going all day, the Pocophone F1 becomes even more compelling.
