POCO by Xiaomi It was a brand that revolutionized 2018 thanks to its first launch, the Pocophone or Poco F1. This terminal stood out for focusing on performance and high-end battery at a really cheap price, being the cheapest high-end processor mobile in Spain and a terminal that even today remains unmatched.
Two years later, the Xiaomi sub-brand tried again with the Poco F2 Pro, a team that comes to be the successor of what for many was the mobile revelation of 2018. After going through our analysis, we believe that the new generation loses some of the essence of the original, but with the price drops there is nothing wrong.
Poco F2 Pro, analysis: a great mobile that abandons its essence
Almost two years after its first mobile, the Poco F2 Pro has already arrived, and we have been able to test it. Will it live up to its predecessor?
The discounted Poco F2 Pro is very attractive
When we analyze the Poco F2 Pro, I recognize that it was not a mobile that made me especially excited, since the task of matching its predecessor was complicated. It was a single terminal, while the new model is more a Redmi with the changed name, in the same way as the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro last year.
However, that does not make it a bad motive if we value it objectively. It still has the best Qualcomm processor at the time, the Snapdragon 865, accompanied by 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage and a 4-camera system that is far from being the best in its range, but if you are not very demanding in photography will leave you satisfied.
This mobile does not represent a great evolution in battery, since although this is 4700 mAh we also have a much larger screen (which looks excellent, although it is limited to 60 Hertz) and we also do not like it to be much heavier. It also has a motorized front camera, headphone jack, NFC and Netflix in HD.
Is it worth it now that it has dropped more than 100 euros? Now that the price has fallen, it recovers some of the essence of the original, and that is that like F1, if your purpose is to have the most powerful Snapdragon at the cheapest possible price, it is your first option.
