POCO F1 – MASTER OF SPEED and COOLING

 

Xiaomi POCOPHONE F1 Quick REVIEW AND WHERE TO BUY

POCO F1 is dubbed Master of Speed for a good reason. Thanks to the most powerful Snapdragon 845 and LiquidCool Techology, POCO F1 brings unparralled performance and efficiency without overheating. No more throttling and loss of performance after 10 mins of gaming.

People also want to play games longer, hence the 4000mAh battery to deliver up to 7HRs of Non-Stop gaming on a single charge. Certainly, no comprimises here. $1000 worth of performance on a $350 phone! There is no NFC to be found here though, but POCO F1 has a headphone jack and microSD card slot, something most phones are missing these days.

BETTER CAMERAS WITH AI, LARGE PIXEL SIZE and DUAL PIXEL AF

 

Xiaomi POCOPHONE F1 Quick REVIEW AND WHERE TO BUY

While cameras on POCO F1 are not S9 level of quality, the large pixel size and high-grade SONY IMX363 will look great to anyone who isn’t using the latest flagship from Samsung or Apple. No OIS in this one, but a Gyro based EIS makes videos less shaky and low-light photos a tad better. A massive 20MP Selfie camera is present to please the Social Media Fanatics too. 4K Video recording is present, as is Portrait Mode Dual Pixel Autofocus. Overall, worth your money in the camera department, but not puching much above it’s price tag.

CUSTOM POCO MIUI WITH APP DRAWER AND GLOBAL LANGUAGES

 

Xiaomi POCOPHONE F1 Quick REVIEW AND WHERE TO BUY

The biggest gripe with Xiaomi from most phone users is MIUI, due to it’s more iOS like looks and no App Drawer, but POCO F1 has a different MIUI. A custom MIUI version on top of Android 8.1 Oreo was developed to look and feel much more like Stock Android and it includes and app-drawer and YES it’s Multi-Language. The POCO team have confirmed Android Pie 9.0 is coming to Xiaomi POCOPHONE F1 later this year too.

BIG, BRIGHT AND COLORFUL – POCO F1 DISPLAY DELIVERS

 

Xiaomi POCOPHONE F1 Quick REVIEW AND WHERE TO BUY

Display size and quality is something that really matters in a smartphone and Xiaomi have assured POCO F1 has what you need. Using a custom 6.18-inches IPS panel with the new 18:8 standard and FHD+ resolution. People have to be realistic at this price and not expect and AMOLED/OLED panel as it’s far too expensive, but IPS is still more durable and has a more realistic colour approach. POCO F1′s display boasts very high contrast ratio and brightness to rival if not beat any $350 phone on the market today.

POCO F1 FINAL THOUGHS AND WHERE TO BUY

Overall, I expect POCO F1 to really rock the smartphone world. People want the fastest phone for the lowest price with great battery life and good cameras, nothing beats POCO F1. For me, the only downside is the plastic body and notch. Don’t get me wrong, Plastic is a great material for phones! It’s way more durable than metal or cheaper glass, but don’t expect it to feel premium when you hold it or to WoW somebody with the POCO F1′s design.
