Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro Smartphone Review - Mid-range Phone with an HDR AMOLED Display and >1000 nits

Still a flagship killer? This year's Poco phone once again offers very competitive hardware specifications, including the very bright, color-accurate AMOLED display, for a cheap price. We measured a brightness of above 1080 nits from the mid-range phone. Our review will show whether the cheap 5G smartphone is worth the asking price of 440 Euros (~$516).

Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro smartphone review

The Poco F2 Pro is available in Europe and is based on the Redmi K30 Pro, which Xiaomi released in March for the Chinese market. There are barely any differences in terms of the appearance and the technical specifications.

The 6.67-inch HDR AMOLED panel has a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a resolution of 1080p. Like on the predecessor, a headphone jack is still available and the F2 Pro now also comes with 5G support, fast UFS 3.1 storage and a 4700-mAh battery that supports 30-watt fast charging.

The Poco phone, which has been available in Western countries since May, relies on the Snapdragon 865 and it can currently be purchased for about 440 Euros (~$520) from various online retailers. For the price, prospective buyers receive an F2 Pro with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. For 530 Euros (~$620), the top configuration offers 256 GB of storage space and 8 GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the prices of the Redmi K30 Pro tend to be significantly cheaper. Import shops currently demand about 350 Euros (~$410) and 430 Euros (~$505), respectively.

The front and back of the F2 Pro consist of 5th generation 2.5-D Corning Gorilla Glass that is slightly rounded-off at the edges for a smooth transition into the metal frame. The 6.67-inch OLED display is surrounded by thin bezels. Thanks to the pop-up camera, the bezels on top of the case are small as well, resulting in a very efficient screen-to-body ratio of 87%. Like many other phones with a pop-up cam, the Poco F2 Pro is also relatively heavy at 219 grams (~7.73 oz).

The build quality and choice of materials is excellent. The integrated buttons sit firmly within the frame and their actuation points are comfortably crisp. The retractable pop-up cam makes a solid impression as well, appears to be well-protected against a moderate amount of force, which only causes slight teetering, and it automatically retracts if the phone is dropped in order to prevent damage to the module.

Since the case of the Xiaomi phone is IP certified according to IP53, the F2 Pro is protected against dust and splash water. However, the Poco phone is not waterproof.

Features - Poco F2 Pro with a 3.5-mm Headphone Jack

The USB Type-C port on the bottom of the Poco smartphone's case supports USB 2.0 speeds. Peripherals can be connected to the F2 Pro via an OTG adapter. Additionally, Miracast is available for wireless video output.

The latest Poco generation now finally supports HD video content from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and other streaming services, since the models have passed the certification process for Widevine L1. It should be noted that the Chinese version, the Redmi K30 Pro, only specifies support for the Widevine DRM level L3.

Unlike on many other devices, a status LED, the always-on feature (ambient display) for incoming messages, FaceUnlock, a 3.5-mm headphone jack, and an IR blaster are available on the phone.

The internal UFS 3.1 storage of our test device has a capacity of 128 GB, approximately 107 GB of which is available to users due to the space taken up by the operating system and the preinstalled apps. Users who need more storage will have to pick the 256 GB version, since the storage cannot be expanded via microSD cards.

Software - Poco Phone with MiUI

The Poco F2 Pro ships with Google's Android 10 operating system. On top of it, Xiaomi has installed its own user interface MiUI 11 for Poco. The latter offers slight visual adjustments, which we are already familiar with from other Xiaomi phones. An update to the current version MiUI 12, which will also include updates to the installed security patches from April 2020, is planned for the F2 Pro in the near future.

Note: Since the Redmi series was made for the Chinese market, the MiUI software of the K30 Pro does not support Google services such as the Play Store or Google apps such as Gmail ex-factory. Instead, the K30 Pro uses Chinese services and Xiaomi's own framework.

Communication and GPS - Xiaomi Phone with Wi-Fi 6

With Wi-Fi 6, the Poco F2 Pro supports the latest Wi-Fi standard, allowing it to use both the 2.4-GHz and the 5.0-GHz frequency range. Since the Xiaomi smartphone is also compatible with MIMO technology, the Poco phone achieves terrific results in our Wi-Fi test. In conjunction with our reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12, it reaches high and quite consistent transfer rates.

Furthermore, the dual-SIM phone supports all modern mobile-networking standards, while covering a sufficient amount of frequency bands for Germany. Thanks to the X55 modem, 5G is also available for theoretical download speeds of 3.45 Gb/s and the F2 Pro already supports LTE band 28, which corresponds to the 703-to-733-MHz range.

The Poco F2 Pro uses both the L1 band and the L5 band, which is used in the professional space, to determine the current position. For locating purposes, it accesses the satellite systems GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou during our test.

In order to assess the precision of our test device in a real-world scenario, we simultaneously record the route with the Garmin Edge 520 for comparison purposes. The detailed view of the GPS recording shows an accurate depiction of the 4-km test track that only deviates from the professional navigation device's route by about 80 meters. The accuracy is more than sufficient for daily navigation tasks.

Telephony and Call Quality - Poco F2 Pro with Wi-Fi Calling

Like the Redmi K30 Pro, the F2 Pro also accepts up to two nano-SIM cards. VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling are supported.

The call quality is good overall. The voice of our conversational partner is clear and our voice is also transmitted distinctly. Making video calls via Skype with the integrated microphones was a very pleasant experience.

Cameras - Quad-camera System with a Sony IMX Sensor

Pop-up selfie cam of the Poco F2 Pro
Pop-up selfie cam of the Poco F2 Pro

Poco uses a 20-megapixel sensor with an f/2.2 aperture for the pop-up selfie cam. While the quality of the front camera is decent relative to its price class, the F2 Pro is not a true selfie specialist. Although the Poco phone often achieves good results under optimal conditions, the images tend to lack sharpness and the lighting is frequently off when taking a backlit picture.

The camera setup on the back is composed of a 64-MP main camera with an open aperture of f/1.89 without an optical image stabilizer, a 123-degree ultra-wide-angle camera with a resolution of 13 MP as well as a 2-MP macro optics and a 5-MP camera for depth information. Since there is no telephoto lens on the Poco phone, the camera does not have an "optical" zoom.

The Sony IMX686 sensor inside the main camera on the back combines 2x2 adjacent pixels into one larger pixel for pictures with a resolution of 16 megapixels. In low-light situations, the lighting is poor and the pictures lack sharpness. By contrast, objects captured in well-lit scenarios shine with a lot of details and a high dynamic range. The sharpness of these images is excellent as well.

The 123-degree ultra-wide-angle optics is significantly weaker than the main camera. Neither the sharpness nor the dynamic range of pictures captured with the former can really be described as good. Compared to the 48-MP Sony sensor of the OnePlus 8 Pro, the images are severely lacking in terms of both details and brightness.

As required for a current flagship killer, the Poco F2 Pro can capture moving images at UHD with 60 FPS or 8K with up to 30 FPS - slow-motion recordings at 960 FPS and 1080p resolution are possible as well.

We further analyzed the color accuracy of the Poco smartphone under controlled lighting conditions. Compared to the reference colors, colors on the display of the mid-range smartphone are noticeably too bright. Furthermore, white tones appear overly warm.

We captured our test chart under artificial light to assess the sharpness of pictures. While the sharpness in the center of the chart is decent, the image is somewhat lacking in terms of contrast. However, there are no major sharpness issues even near the edges of the photo.

Accessories and Warranty - Poco F2 Pro with a Protective Case

Modular 33-watt charger included with the F2 Pro
Modular 33-watt charger included with the F2 Pro

Aside from the smartphone itself, the Poco F2 Pro's scope of delivery also includes a modular charger, a USB cable (Type-A to Type-C), a transparent (hard-case) bumper, a SIM tool and a quick-start guide.

The warranty period is 12 months. This does not affect the duration of the manufacturer's guarantee for EU buyers.

Input Devices & Handling - Xiaomi Phone with an In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

Thanks to its fairly high sampling rate of 180 Hz, the touchscreen of the 6.67-inch OLED panel feels very responsive. While the optical fingerprint sensor below the display responds reliably, it is at a speed disadvantage compared to the fastest models. Similarly, biometric authentication is available on the Poco F2 Pro, and while the facial recognition also works reliably, it is not the most secure unlocking method since it is 2D-based.

The haptic feedback from the vibration motor is good, although it cannot match the extreme precision and crispness of its in-house competitor Xiaomi Mi 10.

Display - Poco F2 Pro with an HDR OLED Panel

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

While the 6.67-inch AMOLED display of the Xiaomi smartphone, which has a native resolution of 2400x1080 pixels, is able to display HDR10+ content, it does not have a 90-Hz or even 120-Hz refresh rate, and is instead limited to just 60 Hz. Thanks to a pixel density of just below 400 PPI, the screen displays content with a reasonable level of clarity.

The luminosity of the OLED panel is excellent, particularly in comparison to other panels in its price range. On a purely white background, the display reaches 813 cd/m² with a very even illumination. After disabling the ambient light sensor, the maximum brightness drops to around 500 cd/m². With 1080 cd/m² in the APL50 test, the brightness increases significantly when displaying an even distribution of bright and dark areas and reaches a level that is almost ideal for HDR10+ content - the results of the APL10 test are potentially even higher than those of our APL50 test.

As per usual, the F2 Pro's OLED panel uses PWM at a fairly low frequency of 117 Hz to control the brightness. However, there is a special DC dimming mode available via the Xiaomi phone's settings menu.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 177.3 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 177.3 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 177.3 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17507 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Due to the underlying OLED technology, the black values are outstanding, which results in an excellent (theoretically infinite) contrast ratio. Apart from great contrasts, the F2 Pro also offers very good color-space coverage. Ex-factory, the panel displays colors accurately (profile: standard), although the Xiaomi Mi 10 achieves even lower average DeltaE deviations from the sRGB color space.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.

Performance - Xiaomi Smartphone with a Snapdragon 865

Xiaomi relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 to power its flagship Poco smartphones. The high-end chipset comes with one fast "prime core" that runs at up to 2.84 GHz and three additional Cortex-A77-based performance cores with clock speeds of up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, there are four ARM-Cortex-A55 cores (1.8 GHz) for energy conservation purposes. The powerful Adreno 650 inside the Qualcomm SoC handles graphics-intensive workloads.

While the system performance is good and the user experience smooth during daily use, the animations are not as smooth as on a panel with a refresh rate of 90 Hz or more. Although applications launch almost instantaneously thanks to the extremely fast UFS 3.1 storage and the responsive panel, the internal storage of the F2 Pro is not really any faster than the UFS 3.0 storage of its competitors, which suggests that only the 256-GB version uses UFS 3.1 storage and our test model continues to rely on 3.0 storage.

The good results of the Snapdragon 865 are not just limited to day-to-day use. In our benchmarks, it reaches very high scores. That being said, the results of the F2 Pro in the system benchmark PCMark for Android cannot quite match those of the realme X50 Pro or the Nubia RedMagic 5G.

It should be noted that like the Blackshark 3 models, our 128-GB test device is only equipped with LPDDR4X RAM, whereas the 256-GB version of the F2 Pro comes with faster LPDDR5 RAM. Thus, the benchmark results of the latter may vary.

Gaming - F2 Pro with Qualcomm Adreno 650

The Adreno 650 GPU within the Qualcomm SoC is more than capable of displaying even more-demanding 3D games from Google's Play Store smoothly. Current titles such as the racing simulator Asphalt 9 and PUBG Mobile run at a consistent 30 FPS with high graphics settings. At lower graphics settings, the first-person shooter can be played at 60 FPS on the Poco F2 Pro - we recorded the frame rates with the help of the app Gamebench. The sensors and the touchscreen warrant no criticism.

Note: Since downloading the frame-rate graphs from Gamebench currently is not possible, we cannot display them here at this time. We will add them to this page as soon as the feature becomes available again.

Emissions - Poco F2 Pro with a Mono Speaker

Temperature

Even though the Poco F2 Pro uses the new LiquidCool technology 2.0, a multi-layered liquid cooling system, both the case and the display of the Xiaomi phone become noticeably warm to the touch during prolonged gaming sessions. Under continuous load, the Poco phone reaches above 42 °C.

However, the heat development on the inside of the Xiaomi phone and the performance of the cooling solution are a more interesting matter. To this end, we used GFXBench's battery test. The Manhattan 3.1 test showed that the frame rate barely decreases as the load increases.

The fluctuations are within less than 1% of the total performance. These results show that users are very unlikely to experience performance drop-offs with the Poco F2 Pro, since the performance of the Snapdragon 865, particularly during prolonged gaming sessions, remains consistent.

The mono speaker on the bottom of the device reaches a satisfactory maximum volume level of about 84 dB(A). The soundscape of the unit is defined by fairly balanced mids. Meanwhile, very high tones are more present than on the realme X50 Pro.

The 3.5-mm headphone jack, which provides a good audio experience with a fairly high maximum volume level, can be used to connect headphones for stereo sound. Thanks to support for Bluetooth codecs such as aptX, aptX HD, LDAC, and AAC, wireless solutions are also supported.

Verdict Poco F2 Pro - Excellent 60-Hz Smartphone

In review: Poco F2 Pro. Test device courtesy of notebooksbilliger.de
In review: Poco F2 Pro. Test device courtesy of notebooksbilliger.de

With the Poco F2 Pro, Xiaomi has once again managed to release a well-rounded mid-range smartphone. Although this year's model is not quite as cheap as the Pocophone F1, the asking price of around 430 Euros (~$505) for the 128-GB model still makes it an interesting offering - this is further reinforced by the fact that the 256-GB version was frequently on sale for 450 Euros (~$530) during our review.

The Poco F2 Pro offers a very bright and well-calibrated OLED panel, long battery life and a modern design without a notch or a punch hole to disrupt the screen. Additionally, the build quality is high and the performance almost, but not quite, reaches flagship levels thanks to the Snapdragon 865 and UFS 3.1 storage.     

Those who do not need 90-Hz and a good camera setup will find that the Poco F2 Pro has a lot to offer for a relatively cheap price.

Unfortunately, Xiaomi has only equipped its latest Poco phone model with a 60-Hz panel that displays animations and scrolling less smoothly than its in-house competitors Black Shark 3 or Xiaomi Mi 10. Similarly, the F2 Poco only comes with a single integrated speaker that produces a very convincing audio experience. Compared to high-end competitors, compromises will also have to be made when it comes to the camera quality. Due to the lack of a telephoto lens and the fairly poor quality of the ultra-wide-angle lens, the Poco phone feels far less flexible than flagship Android camera phones.
