Nearly two years later, the latest POCO F2 Pro is finally available. In the past two years, the smartphone market has undergone earth-shaking changes. The appearance changes of POCO F2 Pro and POCO F1 also reflect the changes in the past two years.
The Xiaomi Poco F1 has a 6.18in notch design display with an aspect ratio of 18.7:9 and a resolution of 2246x1080 pixels. This means that this is a complete FHD+-level panel and is a traditional LCD type.
The screen of Poco F1 was not the highest configuration of the year, but it still has an FHD+ level, and this configuration will not surprise us. Xiaomi still uses FHD+ resolution on most smartphones, even the more expensive Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S and Xiaomi Mi 8 at the time. This is because Xiaomi believes that the advantages of using FHD+ resolution outweigh the disadvantages, so it is most suitable for the smartphone platform, otherwise, it will bring a greater burden on battery life, and the FHD+ resolution is enough to satisfy the naked eye experience. In addition, the FHD+ resolution also helps to reduce the cost of hardware, while the actual performance of the display panel is good enough.
Poco F1 is equipped with an IPS LCD panel, which is usually difficult to see in outdoor bright light, but this is not the case with Poco F1. Even outdoors, it's easy to see what's on the screen, and it does intelligently switch brightness. For many people, notch design's grooves are a drawback. But at that time, almost all smartphones continued to use notch design screen.
What’s more, in today's smartphone world full of glass and metal, Xiaomi has decided to return to polycarbonate plastic on Poco F1 or Kevlar fiber on a special Armored Edition version. There is obviously a high price to pay for using plastic on a fuselage that is supposed to be glass and metal. First of all, it doesn't look as upscale as the Galaxy Note9, but the biggest difference in this material is that Poco F1 feels better than Galaxy Note9 and is less likely to slip out of its hands. Kevlar fiber also makes it easier to hold it because it does add some friction to Poco F1.
On the other hand, the latest POCO F2 Pro is equipped with the most popular full screen. Thanks to the overall screen design, the visual effect of the POCO F2 Pro is still quite shocking. The POCO F2 Pro uses a 6.67-inch Samsung AMOLED screen with a top frame of 1.97mm, left and the right frame of 1.75mm, and a bottom frame of 3.45mm, achieving a screen share of 92.7%.
The overall quality of this screen of POCO F2 Pro is very good, except that it does not support high refresh rate, it also has good data in terms of color and brightness. This screen is made of E3 luminous material and has an ultra-high contrast of 500000:1, with a maximum brightness of 800N and a peak brightness of 1200nit. it can also have an excellent display effect in the sun. Not only that, the POCO F2 Pro screen supports HDR 10 + and DCI-P3 gamut display and also performs well in color display.
In addition, the back of POCO F2 Pro adopts the same AG process of light and fog, so the light and shadow effect is more gorgeous. The fifth generation of gorilla glass can make the fuselage more wear-resistant and reduce the chance of damage in the event of an accidental fall.
The difference in cameras between Xiaomi Poco F1 and POCO F2 Pro also reflects the current changes in the mobile phone market.
Xiaomi uses all its camera software on Poco F1, so we can get artificial intelligence to take pictures. When it detects an object, it automatically adjusts the camera settings. For example, if you are taking a picture of a cloud, it will detect the cloud and adjust the settings to help you get a very good-looking picture. It can also recognize hundreds of objects, so you may never have to jump to manual mode, making the whole process easy and enjoyable.
In addition, Xiaomi is not so hard on the camera optimization of Poco F1, which is different from the photos taken with HUAWEI or Honor smartphone cameras, and the photos look more realistic. Both the back and front cameras of Xiaomi Poco F1 are equipped with this mode, and the rear camera uses a 5 million-pixel secondary camera to collect depth data and works well in portrait or panoramic mode. In addition, the front camera also uses some artificial intelligence elements, so you can get a very good-looking selfie. In fact, the photo effect of Poco F1 is very close to the quality of Google Pixel 2 XL, plus a beautiful front portrait mode.
The back of the POCO F2 Pro is highly recognizable, with a circle of lines around the phone lens module and four eye-catching cameras. The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom version has a main camera element of 64 million and supports OIS optical anti-shaking. in addition, the phone can also take pictures with 3x optical zoom or 30x digital zoom, giving users an excellent photo experience.
The POCO F2 Pro features a 20 million-pixel pop-up front lens and a new traditional design with a pop-up and recovery time of 0.58 seconds. For the protection of the front lens, the POCO F2 Pro has a built-in single magnet and 3D Hall sensor, together with a spring protection mechanism, which can automatically recover the front lens when the fuselage falls accidentally, reducing the chance of accidental damage. Under normal circumstances, the design life of the front lens of the POCO F2 Pro is 300000 times, so you can rest assured that you can use it boldly.
The front lens of the POCO F2 Pro also adds an RGB lighting effect, which can be customized. There is also a circular light prompt area at the top of the front lens, which prompts the user through LED breathing lights when the phone receives a notification.
The difference in system and performance between Poco F1 and POCO F2 Pro is also huge.
If you think the cheap Poco F1 is not as good as other flagships, you are wrong. Xiaomi equipped the Poco F1 with a Snapdragon 845 processor and running memory for 6GB or 8GB, which was basically the best smartphone configuration on the market that year. Xiaomi has also added a liquid cooling system to the Poco F1, so overall it is an impressive flagship smartphone, at least in terms of performance.
Xiaomi Poco F1 uses the Android 8.1 Oreo system and the MIUI 18.104.22.168 (OEJMIFD) version. When you pick up Poco F1 for the first time, you may wonder if it is running MIUI, because the interface of Poco F1 doesn't look like MIUI at all.
Poco F1 uses a stereo dual speaker configuration, although the headset part is mainly used for MIDS and treble presentation, while the speaker at the bottom of the phone is mainly responsible for bass, and the bottom speaker is slightly smaller and does not look obvious, but if you listen carefully, you can still hear the difference. It should be noted that the design of the speaker at the bottom may block it in the game, but even so, its sound is still loud enough. So there is no need to worry about the sound quality of Poco F1. In addition, the phone provides a 3.5mm headphone Jack, so you can still use your favorite headphones to listen to music while you are out. There is no special DAC chip in Poco F1, so the sound quality mainly depends on the quality of headphones.
POCO F2 Pro is equipped with a Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. Compared with this chip, everyone is already very familiar with this chip. Because of its powerful performance, it is also used by the vast majority of flagship mobile phones. The continuous read speed of POCO F2 Pro is 1720.5MB, and the continuous write speed is 759.03MB, which is quite good. The storage of UFS 3.1can bring faster read and write ability.
If you want to make the phone output with high performance for a long time, heat dissipation is very important. POCO F2 Pro has 9 built-in temperature sensors, which can detect the temperature in different areas such as motherboard, CPU, camera, battery, interface, and so on. With the internal heat dissipation design of the fuselage, it can effectively improve the heat dissipation capacity of the whole machine.
POCO F2 Pro supports SA+NSA dual-mode 5G network and supports more than 5G bands such as N1, N3, N41, N78, and N79. At the same time, the mobile phone also supports Wi-Fi6 technology, which also brings about all-round upgrades in the network.
In addition, the POCO F2 Pro retains the headphone interface of 3.5mm, which also brings convenience to users. The traditional functions of Redmi mobile phones, such as multi-function NFC and infrared remote control, continue to be used on POCO F2 Pro.
The POCO F2 Pro uses a 1216 superlinear loudspeaker unit, and the interior of the loudspeaker uses a flexible double diaphragm design for the first time, which can improve the external low-frequency and intermediate-frequency performance of the phone so that the POCO F2 Pro has a better sound when playing music outside.
Xiaomi keeps fingerprint sensors on the back of the Poco F1, so we can still protect our phones with our fingers. The position of the sensor is below the camera, which is very reasonable and easy to find, which makes it very easy for us to unlock the phone with our fingers.
At the same time, for those who do not want to use fingerprint sensors, facial recognition technology can also be used, which can be achieved through the front infrared sensor, and the face of Poco F1 can be unlocked very quickly. And the recognition accuracy is also very high, even in the case of dim light. Poco F1's facial recognition function runs smoothly, but the only drawback is that face unlocking can only be achieved in some places. For example, in the US market, the face unlocking feature on Xiaomi phones is not available, but if you switch from the US to another market, you can use it normally. It's a little weird.
POCO F2 Pro uses an ultra-thin optical fingerprint module under the screen, and the placement of the fingerprint area is no longer limited by the internal space of the fuselage, which also increases the screen fingerprint recognition area by 10% compared with the previous generation, further optimizing the experience of screen fingerprint unlocking. Through the way of micro-lens and micro-collimator, the fingerprint recognition accuracy of POCO F2 Pro is greatly improved, and the success rate of screen fingerprint unlocking is higher.
The battery life performance of Xiaomi Poco F1 can be described as "amazing". Although it has only a 4000mAh capacity battery, it is still a pleasant surprise. Even if you use the 4G LTE network all day, you can still get pretty good battery life. In our test, it can basically reach 9 hours, and there is about 20% power left at this time, which is quite incredible, and it is basically the best performance for smartphones. In addition, Poco F1 supports QC 3.0 fast charging technology and does not support wireless charging.
Although the POCO F2 Pro does not have a high refresh screen, it has a more affordable price, allowing more users to buy the POCO F2 Pro at a lower price. And the POCO F2 Pro phone has a high-capacity battery of 4700 Ma / h and supports 33W extremely fast charging. It takes about 63 minutes to be fully charged, so it can have a good battery life whether for daily use or playing games.
