So overall, Xiaomi POCO F2 Pro has a capable camera system. It’s fun. It’s not going to give you the best quality images and you should look elsewhere if you want that. But as far as a decent quad-camera setup for $500. This so nailed that really the software is probably the only reason I couldn’t rock this phone every day with MIUI. As I said isn’t my thing and even performance to me is not that good. Because I didn’t feel high end like Snapdragon 865 should feel smooth with a 1080p display. Definitely it should pretty much smooth. But it doesn’t always. Here the problem is with the software part of that is also probably that I’m spoiled at this point getting used to all these higher refresh rate display. I just generally felt like it should be stuttering less and should be smoother.
Xiaomi POCO F2 Pro Display
Of course Xiaomi poco f2 pro has some cool features like decent camera and the always-on display with a customizable clock and things like that.But there’s also occasionally ads inside the UI and the stock apps, but if I’m just evaluating this whole phone as a package for $500.
It’s a deal they did a really good job here. It’s the real deal. You know, they have the non-pro Poco F2. They have the Poco f2 and then there’s just a whole ton of other competition in this space. If you like different things about different budget phones, and I talked about that. So this phone is a good sign of a lot of action in that space. We might think and see that a lot of the Improvement at the very high end now is pretty incremental. That’s a minor Updates this year.
There’s a lot of action.
Xiaomi POCO F2 Pro Pricing
Above all, This phone is fire for about $500 when you translate it. So it’s not quite the same thing as the original which was like the maximum value for $300. But hey, I’m okay with that and they also have the regular poco phone F2 you want that.
But this phone that defined in a high-end phone and I guess basically they’re adding the word Pro here at that just kind of means better. So from the overall build quality to all the specs and all the numbers on paper and all the included features it looking pretty complete. Not only is it a pretty big phone.
Xiaomi POCO F2 Pro Camera
Firstly, I haven’t noticed there are a lot of hole punch cameras out there now. And so this doesn’t have a hole punch doesn’t have a notch and it’s doing my favorite method of getting rid of the hole punch camera and the selfie camera. It’s a little pop-up. So now you have a full screen corner to corner display six points six seven inches of 1080p ammolead and it’s a flat display to no fancy curved glass which I am totally fine with its HDR 10+ certified and I guess up to a comfortable but not incredible five. A hundred in its I’m just happy we have displays like this on a phone of this price though. It is 60 hertz. And I think if I was spending anymore, I would definitely be looking for high refresh rate.
But aside from that it’s clear that the standout feature of this already. Great Hardware package is the screen the fingerprint reader underneath is pretty good too at this point. It’s also kind of cool that this is pretty much standard, you know, this used to be a high-end future, but now it’s started to trickle down and it seems like the optical fingerprint reader under the glass is cheap enough. Most of the phone can include it in the pop-up camera here has just a little extra flare to it. It’s got the LEDs on the module itself. And actually if you go to the special features section in the settings, you can configure the front camera effects and really customize the the sound effects and the light color for every time you open that front facing camera.
In addition, Xiaomi POCO F2 Pro also gives you a warning if you’re doing it too many times. Anyway, on top of all that it comes with this clear case, which I’m learning people really like especially for getting rid of that little camera bump on the back. But if you’re not into that which I’m usually not been you can always grab a skin from our Channel sponsor brand to mix it up with the color or the back texture finish, you know, this matte black skin has never done me wrong. But honestly, I think holding this phone, you know it’s $500.
However the only thing that would tip me off that this isn’t a $900 phone is there’s a little bit of rainbow banding on the display from off-axis. And then also these rounded Corners. I just noticed the lower-end phones for whatever reason just usually have more of swooping bigger Corner radius while the higher end phones can tighten that up make it sharper more boxy other brand-offers.You can’t tell just from holding it. There is no wireless charging despite the glass back and There’s also no IP official IP water and dust resistance rating. Those things cost money. I just want the vibration motor as it buzzes in my hand I’m reminded about it. Now, you can’t necessarily tell that it is a cheap phone because of a bad vibration motor because there are expensive phones with bad vibration Motors too. But overall it’s a decent phone.
