If you haven't bought the Poco F1, this is the best time to buy the flagship killer phone. I have used the Poco F1 (review) for more than a month and have to say; it truly lives up to the expectations. It works smoothly even playing the graphics-intense games or during the extended photography session.
It never showed lag-ness. It's no wonder the company sold more than 7,00,000 units of Poco F1 (and also global model Pocophone F1) in just three months after going on sale across the world.
For the uninitiated, The new Poco F1 flaunts a sturdy polycarbonate shell on the back with a dual camera and a fingerprint sensor below it. On the front, it flaunts a 6.18-inch full HD+ display with iPhone X-like notch on the top housing an advanced 20MP camera with an IR sensor for face unlock capability. It can even work in a dark environment.
Under-the-hood, it houses Snapdragon 845 octa-core, Qualcomm's most powerful and fastest processor to date and it is backed by the Liquid Cool technology and the newly introduced DSP architecture with AI performance that's three times higher than the previous generation.
Supported by up to 8GB LPDDR4x DRAM, Poco F1 can render the most demanding games at high FPS for an unparalleled gaming experience, the company claims.
As far as the camera is concerned, it comes with feature-rich 12MP (Sony IMX363, F1.9, 1.4μm) + 5MP AI dual camera, Dual Pixel Autofocus, HDR, Multi-frame Noise Reduction, more than 200 AI scene detection, AI Beautify and AI portrait mode.
On the front, it features equally impressive 20MP sensor with 1.8μm pixel size, 4-in-1 Super Pixel, F2.0 aperture, HDR, AI scene detection, AI Beautify, AI portrait mode and Infrared illuminator + infrared camera for the Face Unlock feature.
Poco F1 comes with big 4,000mAh battery, which is enough to last a whole day if not more under mixed usage. It also supports Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
As far as the Armoured Edition is concerned, it comes with a back panel made of DuPont Kevlar. It is said to super-tough, heat-resistant material and is widely used in the aviation industry, the military, and high-end cycling. Its textured surface gives Poco F1 a unique appearance and provides a comfortable grip. Rest of the internal hardware is the same as the standard model.
