With the minimalist style that has been all the rage for a while now, your EDC (Every Day Carry) should consist of two things: the best money clip you can find on the market (because a true gent should always carry cash, at least for tipping) and a good phone. And if you are a type of person who does not like to conform to all the (pricey) trends in the mobile phone industry, then keep on reading, as here we will introduce a new big player on the market – the almighty Xiaomi Pocophone F1. This “Master of Speed” from the Chinese tech giant, Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is a premium mid-range product that is quite assertively taking over the world. Incredible specs and lower prices? Well, this is most appealing!
The Almighty Xiaomi Pocophone F1
When it comes to design, the Pocophone F1 has a polycarbonate body, which means that it has a better chance of surviving multiple drops on the ground unlike all those (very) costly glass phones. We most certainly appreciate resilience over a fancy finish. You can enjoy this polycarbonate model that is available in three colorways: Graphite Black, Steel Blue, and (our favorite) Rosso Red.
However, if you want to pay some extra money to be a bit more stylish than you have the option of getting a so-called “Armored Edition” model. This model comes only in black and has a first-class, real woven Kevlar fabric on the back. This one will not stop a bullet, but it looks quite amazing and has an awesome in-hand feel and grip. Note that all models are made with a thin aluminum frame. Power and volume buttons, which are also incredibly responsive, have a right side position, while the round fingerprint sensor that is placed on the back is easily accessible with either hand as well. Just above that fingerprint sensor is a rear dual camera.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Features
The Pocophone F1 features an 18.7:9 Full-Screen Display with a resolution of 2246 x 1080 FHD+ at 403 PPI – but with rounded corners like any other modern smartphone. This Great Phone supports the standard display and gesture-based features (for example, double-tap and raise-to-wake). This great phone also offers sunlight and night display, an adjustable reading mode, and a rich custom color temperature adjustment. An impressive display, brightness and vividness of colors on such an affordable phone! It also sports a USB type-C charging port and a 3.5mm audio port (a.k.a a standard headphone jack).
The moniker of the Pocophone F1 is ‘Master of Speed’ and it is not a joke! It runs on the Snapdragon 845, Qualcomm’s current flagship processor. This means you get a powerful and the most advanced AI engine. This AI Engine lets you enjoy an incredible performance providing you with lower power consumption. This is also a gaming worthy smartphone for any hardcore gamer. The engineers have thought of everything – even the ways to keep cool as well as fast!
With a liquid-cooling mechanism, LiquidCool Technology, regardless of how much you use the phone, you will have no problem keeping it up and running smoothly. No slow response time and no frozen frames, the Pocophone F1 keeps its cool and stays fast always. The almighty F1 has an incredible high-capacity 4000mAh battery (and supports Quick Charge 3.0) that keeps the phone going for 30 hours of calling or 146 hours of audio playback on a single charge. That battery provides enough power to let you use your high-performance phone long enough to make you tired!
The Pocophone F1 has a hybrid SIM tray, which means it lets you use two side-by-side cards, or, although we believe that it has enough capacity, you can still expand internal storage options of 64GB, 128GB or 256GB with a microSD card. There is an option of dual apps support – for example, you can have two versions of Viber as each of them would be connected to each SIM card. You can also customize the look and feel of the phone via the theme store.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Camera
The 12-megapixel plus 5-megapixel AI dual camera has dual-pixel autofocus and can instantly autofocus even in dark environments. In the primary lens, the camera has a large 1.4μm pixel sensor. Also, the AI cameras have the option of intelligently distinguishing across 206 scenes. Thus automatically adjusting the exposure, saturation, and many other photo optimizations. This phone has a whopping 20MP high-res front camera coupled with 1.8μm large pixel (4-in-1 Super Pixel) technology.
Unlike other products from Xiaomi (which are also great by the way), things are taken to another level with their incredible sub-brand Pocophone F1, which has been built with the idea of gaining new markets and going global. The overall experience that the high-performance Pocophone F1 offers is just incredible. And, considering the performance-to-price ratio, we warmly recommend this product.
