The Xiaomi Poco F1 will land on August 30 in a market that seems to be destined for a great change; in a way, because of This terminal offers very high benefits at a bargain price. Perhaps this is the first step for a big drop in mobile phone prices.
Opinions of Pocophone F1 by members of The Free Android
The Pocophone F1 is one of the phones that has attracted the most attention in its launch. The reason is in its price, so we talk about it.
I have been able to test the terminal and I assure you Poco F1 does not offer new experiences in relation to other phones; But, it will be marketed at a very low price for the specifications it has.
This phone integrates a 6 GB RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor for only 329 euros; or what comes to be the same, a ridiculous figure for those specifications.

Simple and attractive design
The variants of Poco F1 in black and blue are quite simple; instead, the red version is quite striking, so much that it pushes to get hold of it. Polycarbonate has been the material chosen for these three modalities, which is a point in favor of its resistance to falls; In addition, the device has a nice touch and not full of footprints, all with a surprising minimum weight considering its 6.18 inches.
Even so, the true beauty of this phone is in its modality with finishing in Kevlar, just take a look to fall in love. He touch is something magical and differentiating regarding polycarbonate models; Although, it also shows as resistant and lightweight.
Acceptable camera and battery at the level of very few
As you know, Poco F1 does not stand out for its cameras, but its 12 and 5 Mpx rear sensors and its 20 front are enough to take pictures in conditions. Obviously the quality of the photos is not comparable with the flagships of each brand, but it gives good results.
In relation to the Poco F1 battery, it is not far behind with 4000 mAh and QuickCharge 3.0; Undoubtedly, a figure that offers autonomy at the level of the best in the sector. It seems that since Xiaomi they have not wanted to forget one of the strongest points of their phones in the terminal that aims to revolutionize the market.
Keeping the fashion of the notch
Its 6.18-inch screen does not stand out nor is it at the level of those offered by Apple or Samsung in its latest terminals; although, without reaching that level of quality, it offers everything necessary for any standard user. In my opinion the number of inches is too large, but that is at the discretion and taste of each.
Little F1 includes notch, what a surprise! The brand has decided to follow market trends without leaving the script. It is obvious that Xiaomi is doing well by doing this, but it is also true that some people (including me) do not like the notch too much. I will not deny that this phone might be worth complying with the punishment of the notch.
Power and speed
Xiaomi Poco F1 was born with the intention of focusing on the "really important", as the company qualifies it. The Snapdragon 845 processor and 6 GB of RAM ensure excellent performance, a fact that many customers in the sector will appreciate.
Isn't there a multitude of people that all they want is a mobile that acts quickly and fluidly? To deny it would be to get too far from the truth. In a way, This terminal seems tailored for that audience that does not use the camera, except on specific occasions, and that simply seeks effectiveness.
In addition, to prevent the smartphone from getting too hot, it has a liquid cooling system in its processor.
The price is the strong point of this phone that can be purchased from just 329 euros. Until now there was no terminal with the best processor on the market, a battery of 4000 mAh and 6 GB of RAM, at such a reduced price. In fact, I would say that the other brands are going to have to put the batteries, since Xiaomi is starting to offer the same products as them, although at half the price or even a third.
