This must be the most underrated phone in the market!
There are two misconceptions that create negative impressions.
The one is that it feels slower than inferior 90hz phones like the 1+ nord and the other is that it is not it is not a bargain anymore, as it's quite as expensive as the poco F1.
Only if you can afford and owned a more expensive which had 90hz you can really appreciate the package the F2 has to offer.
I owned a 1+ 7pro before and I'm telling you, 90 and 120hz are gimmicks. What the eye can really see is fps, having 120hz and still render UI, and games at 30fps is just stupid. Some ppl that paid for it are just trying too hard to convince themselves. It's like a QHD display that can offer 500+ ppi, vs a 1080p display that offers 400+ppi, the eye can barely tell the difference between 400 and 500ppi and there hardly is any content taking advantage of it anyway. However taxing the GPU 4 times as much and draining all that battery makes a real impact that can be felt by all.
So this is where this phone focuses, raw power, speed and battery endurance. And it's a champion there.
Cameras are extremely overrated and the main reason flagships went past 1000 euros, but not everywhere is in need of so many and expensive cameras, yet we do want our phone to be as fast as it gets and readily available for heavy use and enough battery to support it!
Can you imagine this phone with OnePlus software and 90Hz display? For me that would be a perfect phone
Yes and this nice hardware comes with the aweful Xioami ads as usual, no thanks.
notahater, 06 Jul 2020Must be better than K20, it's predecessor.IT'S HAVING A SNAP 865 DUDE , srysly tho , it also has lpddr5 memory on the 8gb of ram edition , four sensors and the primary one is a 64mp one
Add display PWM tests with DC dimming on and off.
Why you call OLED a superior technology, when it burns in, makes eyes bleed and gives weird colours, especially with DC dimming? boo hoo, but the blacks are deep! smh
Drue, 19 Jun 2020Please also mention that Poco is a Global version of K series which is in China ROM version.Lol, that information still doesn't change the fact that only the F1 was the phone under Poco that they can call their own, Xiaomi has even rebranded it as Pocophone for Global. Now the problem with the current state of Poco is that they only exist just to be a "Global rebrand" of Redmi and that's totally different from what Poco F1 has been, the current state now is worse if they continue doing so.

2. The rules still apply, you can't get everything at this price point.
3. It got 30W charging, SD865 SoC, 180hz touch scanning, 5G, 4700mah battery, Quad camera, compared to Mi 9T Pro. If these are not upgrades, I don't know what you expect.
4. By comparing 128GB version of both Poco F1 and Mi9T Pro, it is not twice more expensive.
5. I know what you want, 65W charging, wireless charging, Micro SD slot, water resistant, OIS camera, 90hz or 120hz screen, maybe 2K screen, maybe 108MP camera, maybe better camera optic for low light capture. All these features on other brand are costing more. Be ready to pay more for more features rather than yelling at this Poco F2 Pro for lacking this and that, that's it. (If you can't pay more, than just stick to your old phone, which is nothing wrong with that)
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2020If you think that OIS will guarantee you better images you are wrong.If you think that OIS won't yield better images with the same sensor, especially in low-light and video, then you are a fool.

So, it should have twice specs. But the only good thing about this is the 5G connectivity. Nothing else is special. Even,
last year's K20 Pro had better specs. No telephoto lens, no gorgeous design and no premium feeling can be found on this irritating phone. Now, don't tell me it lacks all these features as it's cheap. Because, K20 Pro was even cheaper than this.
So many good and bad comments.
Do remember this is a budget flagship smartphone, so please expect all the cost cutting measure. You won't get OIS, you won't get 90hz/120hz screen, you won't get water resistant, you won't get wireless charging, won't even get 2K screen and no Micro SD slot. No super fast 50W and 65W charging.
There are plenty more expensive alternative smartphone out there, if you can shell out more money, go get these smartphone.
Every smartphone has pros and cons, especially with a budget one, that has much less features than full flagship.
You can keep saying why this Poco F2 Pro lack this and that.
The reason is simple, because it is cheap.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2020High costDepends on which phone you compare it to. Comparing with other sd 865 phones, I'm sure it's one of the LOWEST if not outright the lowest. The Poco F2 Pro is not the successor of the midrange priced Poco F1. It's the successor of the higher end K20 Pro/Mi 9T Pro.

Pocophone F1 or Poco F1 is the only Poco-phone that is not a rebrand of any sort and that's before Poco became an "independent" sub-brand. Now that Poco became an official sub-brand here's comes their re-branded phones:
1. Poco X2 is a rebranded Redmi K30
2. Poco F2 Pro is a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro
