Xiaomi is here with their latest launch the Poco F1 and since its launch, people are going crazy over this phone. The addition of Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset sets some heavy expectation. The crazy pricing of just Rs. 20,999 is even making us wonder “how is it possible?” But it seems it is indeed possible because Xiaomi has made it possible. Poco is a newly launched segment by Xiaomi which is all set to present with new phones with some extraordinary specification. Let’s see what the Poco F1 has to offer.

Poco F1’s design

Let’s check out the Poco F1 design first. This phone will sport 6.18-inch full HD display. It also comes with Gorilla Glass 3 which will protect the screen of this phone. While exploring the design we could see that the borders were thicker than the usual. Well, we guess there is a valid reason for that, it comes with the camera and infrared emitter and a bumper 20-megapixel camera.

The volume key and the power buttons are on the right-hand side. You can easily locate the power button while you will have to struggle a bit with the volume keys. The camera and the LED flashlight are positioned at the right spot in the back and just below that you will find the fingerprint sensor.

The back of Poco F1 has been made out of Kevlar, the material which is used to make bullet-proof jackets. Pretty interesting.

Want to know where the headphone jack is, well, the 3.5 mm headphone jack is in the bottom. You will also see the C-Type USB port along with the two grillers. One of them is the loudspeaker.

This one will weigh a bit, it weighs 182g and could be heavier for a few but otherwise, the grip is good and doesn’t easily slip.

The 4000 mAh battery is good enough to last long.

We were surprised to see how fast this mobile could operate. Multi-tasking is easier, in fact playing heavy games like Asphalt 9 and PUBG were as easy as drinking water. Poco F1 gave us no room for complaints as well. We tried the base variant as well, and surprisingly it didn’t disappoint us at all.

Battery life was cherry on top. We were still left with 25% charge in this phone even after using it for playing some hardcore games, making phone calls, and using WhatsApp. You can have your phone fully charged in just 2 hours, which was another surprising element.

Camera quality also didn’t disappoint us at all. The primary camera captured some very good photos and it also captured the objects in the background clearly. This phone will automatically switch to HDR mood while taking pictures in low light. Regarding the front camera, yes, it captured some awesome selfies as well. You will enjoy the various beautification mood available on the phone to make your photo look even better.

Poco F1 will cost just Rs. 20,999 and at this price range no other phone is giving you Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. And the addition of Kevlar is something which is worth recommending. Our verdict is to definitely go for the Poco F1.
