Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro Conclusion from July 23, 2020
The Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro offers a strong performance for less than 97273 pkr. In our test, it delivers excellent performance at the flagship level. The display is also first class. In addition, the quad camera is particularly appealing under good ambient light with excellent image quality. Battery charge and runtime are great, only there are a few gaps in the equipment.
- Enormously bright and colorful display
- Top camera quality in daylight
- Lightning-fast performance
- A bit chunky and heavy
- Camera quality in low light much worse
- Some gaps in the equipment
Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro in the test: the first impression counts
About two years ago, the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi showed the Pocophone F1, a very powerful smartphone for the price of a mid-range device. Now the popular cell phone gets a successor, the Poco F2 Pro. However, it is significantly more expensive than its predecessor. Can it offer more? The data sheet promises numerous features that are otherwise only reserved for much more expensive high-end smartphones.
The back, like the iPhone 11 Pro or OnePlus 8 Pro, is made of frosted glass. However, it feels a bit softer here than with the devices just mentioned. In any case, the Poco mobile phone in the hand gives a much higher quality impression than you are used to from competitors of the same price.
The design of the back also highlights the cell phone: a camera module placed in the center and centered lettering ensures a symmetrical design. This looks chic and stands out a bit from the usual look of current smartphones. The positive external impression is rounded off by a high-quality metal frame and a power button in red, which provides the necessary contrast to the dark blue back.
However, the Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro is one of the chunkier smartphones. We measure an above average weight of 219 grams and the thickness is also striking at 10.8 millimeters. For comparison: The Samsung Galaxy S20 weighs just 163 grams and is only 9.2 millimeters thick; the iPhone 11 Pro weighs 188 grams and is 9.4 millimeters thick. For the Poco F2 Pro, you should therefore be prepared for predominantly two-handed operation.
Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro: Huge display with mini borders
You are really overwhelmed by the sight of the 6.7-inch display: This covers around 90 percent of the front, and the display edges are correspondingly small. Not even a notch or a camera hole disturbs the overall picture. The front camera is hidden in the housing and only mechanically extends from the upper edge of the smartphone when necessary. The sight alone suggests that the Poco F2 Pro is a much more expensive smartphone than is the case.
Xiaomi relies on a panel with OLED technology, the advantages of which are particularly evident in our color and contrast measurements. It confidently covers over 152 percent of the standard RGB color space (sRGB) and also fully shows the DCI-P3 color space relevant for HDR videos.
Together with a good contrast value of 165: 1, nothing is left to be desired. Even compared to much more expensive models, the Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro is hardly inferior here.
In our laboratory test, we also measured an excellent display brightness of 587 cd / m², which can be achieved in manual mode. In automatic mode under bright ambient light, the Poco F2 Pro even trumps with peak values of up to 983 cd / m².
You can easily see everything on the screen in all situations. The image resolution is okay, but unspectacular with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels (Full HD Plus) and a pixel density of 393 ppi. However, this is completely sufficient for everyday use.
Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro battery test: even long days without an outlet
The battery is likely to be responsible for the somewhat chunky design of the Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro: it has a total of 4,500 mAh capacity and of course that takes up space. For comparison: The Samsung Galaxy S20 + has 4,500 mAh, the Huawei P40 Pro even only 4,200 mAh.
The results of our runtime test are accordingly pleasing. Under 200 cd / m² display brightness, we let cell phones automatically surf the Internet via LTE network in our battery test until they run out. The Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro lasted 11:27 hours, a very good value. This means that the cell phone should survive longer days without stopping at the socket.
And even that works quite quickly: The battery charges a whopping 56 percent in just 30 minutes with the included 33-watt power supply. It doesn’t take too long for a complete charge from 0 to 100 percent – namely 74 minutes in our test.
However, despite the glass back, you have to do without wireless charging – one of the few flagship features with which the Poco F2 Pro cannot score.
Top level performance
Manufacturers of Android smartphones in the mid-range segment generally rely on Snapdragon processors from the 600 or 700 series. Xiaomi also takes a different approach here and installs the current high-end processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 in the Poco F2 Pro.
It achieves a clock speed of up to 2.84 gigahertz, works with eight cores and is usually found in much more expensive smartphones, for example the OnePlus 8 Pro or the Mi 10 Pro from our own house.
Unsurprisingly, the smartphone did very well in our performance tests. It loads and renders our elaborate test PDF file in just 3.6 seconds, and it scores 9,983 points in the PCMark benchmark. That is top level.
The working memory is between six and eight gigabytes, depending on the variant selected. Our test device is the basic version with smaller RAM. This also shows no signs of poor performance in our practical test: applications start quickly, even complex games run smoothly, animations are smooth and response times are very short. Xiaomi has done a very good job here, because you can’t drive much better with current Android flagships for a lot more money.
Very good light leads to very good photos
On the back of the Poco F2 Pro are four camera lenses in a round module, the design of which is strongly reminiscent of the OnePlus 7T . The main camera has a resolution of 64 megapixels, but thanks to the so-called pixel binning technology that pulls four pixels together, the smartphone outputs photos in 16 megapixels.
You can choose to use the full 64 megapixels, but this is only recommended under the best ambient light. The ultra-wide-angle lens has a resolution of 13 megapixels and the macro lens has a resolution of five megapixels. The fourth camera, a lens for blurring effects (bokeh), only captures information about the foreground and background, which is used in portrait mode.
Xiaomi dispenses with a telephoto lens for a lossless zoom. Unfortunately, none of the camera lenses is optically stabilized, so a good hand or a tripod is required for good pictures in dim light and videos. The Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro not only shoots videos at 4K at 60 frames per second, but also optionally at up to 8K at 24 frames per second.
The photos are particularly convincing under daylight. In our laboratory test, the quality just barely misses the top mark, with which the Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro plays at the level of the best smartphones currently available – but only under good lighting conditions.
Under dim light, the quality drops significantly, here the Poco F2 Pro plays on the average level of peers with the same price. If you take pictures with a tripod, the pictures look much better than when you snap them out of your hand. The bottom line is that we rate the photo quality in our subjective test as “good”. The extendable front camera also does a good job.
