I am a user of poco f2 pro 8gb/256gb
Using it since it launched.
Main reason i bought this is because its a cheapest phone with flagship specs of 2020 in my country.
Just to give you all a idea, it is the same price as samsung s10 lite, or oneplus 7 pro which are both 1 generation old.
Now my experience with this.
I have used oneplus and Samsung mobiles before, for miui i can say its much much better then at-least samsung one-ui
Bec i have globle version so its very much has stock google apps.
Oneplus oxygen os is still the number 1, but i like this miui so far.
60hz is totally fine. Let me tell you my experience, i have used and tried many phones. This phone feels so much smoother then other 60hz phone may be bec of its soc and specs and optimization.
And i always prefer better battery life then highly refresh rate which not even every app and game support.
The best 2 things about poco f2 are its battery left and display...
Nearly 9hrs screen on time, and display with no punch hole or nouch.
So far best phone in this price
AJ - PR, 12 Aug 2020Ok! Been a user of this phone since 2 months now and I waited for at least a couple of months... moreThanks you man! Perfomance, battery and fast charging are what I'm looking forward about a phone
Overall, this is one of the flagship killer of the year. And by means of flagship killer, meaning it has cut corner.
Similar to the Pocophone F1 and the Xiaomi Mi9T Pro before it, this Poco F2 Pro offer high end flagship SoC of the year at a fraction of price. It is more closely resemble the Xiaomi Mi9T Pro, which is the direct sequel.
If you can look past the cut corners, this is a fully usable and functional smartphone. The true main concern over here is, this is a "note" kind of smartphone, or is a phablet size, which is heavy, and big. There is no small size variant of it. It is also much bigger and much heavier than the smartphone before it. Before you really want to buy this smartphone, I would recommend you hand on it before purchase. Clearly, it is not made for everyone.
Been a user of this phone since 2 months now and I waited for at least a couple of months before jumping into any kind of judgments.
I am based out of Dubai and I did buy it from an online seller and ordered a Neon Blue 8GB 256GB variant..and after it was delivered I happen to read a review somewhere about the 6GB and 8GB doesn't really matter much and the difference is not at all noticeable. So I went for the 6GB one and the online seller was kind enough to take the return. This time, 6GB Neon Blue and I still wasn't feeling too good about the color and it was too shiny and catching up finger prints on its glass surface. I decided to go for another replacement and the seller was kind enough again. Finally, the 6GB Grey variant and I was too excited and happy about the color and started using the phone upright..No shiny / flashy looks(which I love) and it wasn't catching fingerprints on the surface.
Performance : I was a user of OnePlus 3T, which is 4 years old approximately( I am not a gadget freak ) and so obviously this upgrade was a huge jump for me in all possible ways. Every other feature, performance speed and battery, all of it obviously seemed way better to me considering I was using an outdated phone earlier. The restart takes nothing more than 12 seconds. I am not a great camera user so I have nothing much to comment on it though the features look promising. I do a lot of gaming and this is where I am too impressed with the performance, no lags, NO heating issues whatsoever. My OnePlus 3T was a furnace and on the contrary the Poco doesn't show any signs of heat even after 3 hours of uninterrupted PUBG..and did I mention the performance was butter smooth???
The charging takes 77 minutes approximately from 0 - 100( I charged on mulitple occasions after the phone went dead and 77 minutes is the average ). The battery fell from 100 to 70 or 65 after 3 hours of play which is quite impressive and I have nothing to complain here. With gaming, browsing, social media, calls and WhatsApping my phone lasts easily for 28 to 30 hours including the phone on idle mode at nights( with WiFi/Data/Location/NFC etc put off )
Network connectivity is seamless and crazy fast on WiFi. I am not going too technical about the phone and I know that's not what most readers here are looking at to decide on buying a phone.
Cons : I sometimes envy my friend's OnePlus 7 Pro for his 90Htz refresh rate which lacks here but not certainly a deal breaker for me.
Wireless charging at 30W could have been a gem on the crown.
Waterproofing is something which I feel could have been added.
My requirements were a fast for gaming, no heating issues, battery lasting long enough and a processor which could run easily into the future(since I don't change phones often) phone. And POCO F2 Pro did turn out to be a winner and I am happy customer.

Sikandar khalol, 09 Aug 2020Poco is shit and it is heater x2 Pro is betterYou are talking $hit,a phone with a dedicated heat vapor chamber and a smaller nm fabrication process is a heater,while the Realme X2 Pro with non of that is better?
Sikandar khalol, 09 Aug 2020Poco is shit and it is heater x2 Pro is betterX2 Pro better? Not in your wildest wet dream fantasies. That ugly X2 Pro notch alone with that smaller screen and last year's processor with no 8K recording and no 5G and no IR blaster with much lower battery capacity, and questionable software update will be enough reason to dump it in favor of the Poco F2 Pro.

2. A POCO, likely to have great 3rd party ROM/supports as the market share is gonna be huge; just take a look at F1 and you get the idea.
3. SD865 vs 855+, a gen newer, better CPU/GPU power while been more efficient on battery.
4. WIFI6 & 5G ready (though 5G is good as non-existent feature for most markets, but at least there’s no harm to have it)
5. Notchless full screen display
6. Noticeably longer battery life and bigger battery, useful when your device getting old and the battery degraded
7. universal standard USB PD vs proprietary VOOC fast charge
Lastly, all my points above has no points if you’re a heavy user and need the 256GB storage (6GB RAM vs 8GB RAM isn’t that significant). POCO with 256GB is significantly pricier than the 128GB; if you’re comparing both with same storage size, it backs down to if you value the points I mentioned above over the price differences.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2020Aren't they the same price?The Poco F2 Pro is cheaper. $399 vs $424. Source: gsmarena.com The price gap increases in markets outside the US with Samsung costing more in most of Asia.
I forgot to add this to my last comment. I can buy them both for the same price of 400€ (Poco F2 with 6gb/128 and x2 pro with 8gb/258).
