You will find a card that says quotWelcome to the Poco Familyquot. Then there is a small yellow box that has the SIM ejector pin on the outside. Then inside there are some cool Poco stickers, Nice, the user manual and a clear soft phone case. Then, of course, you will find the phone itself And for what else is inside of the box, you will find the USB A to USB C Cable, the USB C to 3.5mm, headphones dongle and, finally, a 33 watts fast charging adapter, Oh yes, As for the phone’s Specs the phone comes with the Snapdragon 870 7nm process, with 5G support, as the name clearly mentions it has the Adreno 650 GPU, Then the variant that I have is the 8 gigabytes of RAM with 256 gigabytes of UFS 3.1 storage. It comes shipped with MIUI 12, where I have updated it to the latest. Miui version 12.0.1, All right, looking at the phone’s design and build using the phone, as my daily smartphone felt really good in my hands. Although it comes with a clear phone case, I did not even use it as the phone was quite grippy and it had a very solid weight to it as well. You will really need to see the phone in real life to really appreciate the super classy matte white finish on the phone And speaking of the back. It has a medium sized camera bump where the design looked great, but the phone will wobble a bit.
If you are typing the phone, when placing it on a surface Now, the good news is that this rear finish is not made of plastic like most other cheaper options, but is made of glass with the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, which was great to know, especially With a smartphone within this price range Now, this same Gorilla, Glass 5 is also for the front panel, where it features one of the thinnest dots in the industry just at 2.76mm. Now, looking at the phone’s ports and buttons down below other than the USB C port, you will find the card slot and you’ll find one of the two stereo speakers where the other is right. On top of the phone, together with the IR blaster as well, which at first glance it looked like a speaker too, so that was smartly designed Then on the right. There is the volume rockers and also a very unique power button that doubles up as a fingerprint sensor, where, as opposed to a typical side, mounting fingerprint sensor that you would see in any other smartphones, this hands down has the best quality in terms of the tactile Feel of the button and the fastest fingerprint sensor that I have ever tested with a side mounting option So overall, I would totally rate the phone very high on the overall design and build of the phone, especially within this smartphone level, and range where it surely feels Like it has a Flagship level design Now looking at the phone’s screen, it has a 6.
67 inch AMOLED display, with a resolution of 1080 x, 2400 pixels with HDR 10, with the ultra tiny dot drop display. Where I was shocked at how good the display quality was, especially since it also comes with a high 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate and with its peak brightness of 1300 nits, it made the phone great to view even under bright and harsh daylight, with Its sunlight display 3.0 technology Now using the phone daily just felt great due to its screen quality when it comes to daily tasks like social media browsing and watching videos on YouTube as well. The screen experience was also quite great, especially with the Dolby Atmos support, which I will do a sound test for you all later on in this video Now let’s talk about the camera’s specs. It has 4 cameras in total, where the main lens is a 48 megapixel. F, 1.79 aperture, an 8 megapixel, f, 2.2 ultrawide angle lens and a 5 megapixel tele macro camera with an aperture value of f 2.4. Then, as for the front camera, it has a 20 megapixel f 2.45 lens Now here is where again, I was really pleased with the phone for the photo taking capabilities where you will be getting almost flagship level photos on the phone with nice dynamic range, whether it’s For the ultrawide angle lens as seen over here or the main lens as well, The dedicated 48 megapixel mode was also great for situations where you need to crop and zoom into your images.
But I would use this mode sparingly, since the file sizes are quite huge In terms of zooming. You can zoom optically up to 2 times and digitally up to 10 times where the results were pretty good as well. Portrait Mode on the phone was also great for the rear and also for the front camera. Then the night mode had a nice balance of the highlights and shadows with no signs of a noisy or grainy image, even when taking photos in a REALLY poorly lit area. As for the video, the phone can record up to 4k 2160p at 30 frames per second for the main lens, where the video quality was really good as well. Image stabilization for the main lens and the ultrawide angle lens was extremely stable as well, but keep in mind that the ultrawide lens can only record up to 1080p instead. But I did not see a HUGE difference in the image quality as seen over here as well. Then, as for the phone’s front camera, it records up to 1080p at 30 frames per second, where the video quality was great, with really nice image stabilization. But do keep in mind to make sure that you are not in a backlit situation, where the overall background could be overexposed during that kind of situations. But I have to say that, among all the cool camera features, I really appreciated the dual video mode, where it records both the front and the rear camera.
At the very same time, which was REALLY nice to know that this smartphone within this range had that option. As for the phone’s sound quality, this has to be the best audio quality on any Poco series, thus far, that I’ve reviewed, where not only the audio separation was good when it comes to listening to music, both through wireless earphones and through the stereo speakers, as well. With its high resolution, audio, The Dolby Atmos surround on the speakers sounded extremely well pronounced and the output volume was really high as well, and here is a quick, sound test Anyway. If you guys are enjoying this video so far and if you are new – and if you like this kind of videos, don’t forget to subscribe to Adam Lobo TV and of course, leave me a nice big thumbs up. That would be very much appreciated. In terms of the software, it is upgradable to the latest MIUI version 12.0.1, where the latest iteration of the MIUI has really given me a positive reaction towards the brand new UI in general compared to the previous versions. The overall experience was great, using the phone daily from multitasking browsing websites to social media usage, as well, without any issues whatsoever thanks to the DDR5 RAM And since the phone comes with a high refresh rate and the high touch sampling rate, as mentioned earlier, you wouldn’t Even think that the phone is not a flagship with its fluid navigation experience Now on to the phone’s battery, it comes with 4520 milliamps of battery with fast charging up to 33 Watts where the charger comes inside of the box.
As seen earlier Now, with this fast charging option, it got me from 0 to 100 percent about 55 minutes, which was extremely sweet, And the phone feels like a phone that I just can’t, get it to die within a day unless I really use the phone to The extreme, where, based on my daily usage, I got an average of 4 hours and 49 minutes to 5 hours of screen on time when I was at 10 battery. So, yes, this is surely a HUGE plus on the phone Now in terms of gaming. The good news for you all is that I finally started TRYING to play Gensin Impact. The Game. Turbo mode surely made the gameplay really smooth without any issues, both on Gensin Impact and even on COD Mobile as well, and the phone performed like A REAL BEAST Now. This has to be because of its combination of the Adreno 650 GPU, and also because of the combination because of the DDR5 RAM and the UFS 3.1 storage, especially with the 7nm process of the Snapdragon 870 And with the inclusion of the LiquidCool Technology 1.0. Since the device has a great heat distribution that, although it can be a little warm during a very long gameplay, but it didn’t overheat, neither did it affect the overall gameplay performance Now. In conclusion, the Poco series has yet again exceeded my expectations for a smartphone. That is surely an entry level to a midrange smartphone killer.
I am still extremely mind blown not only for the spec sheet, but my overall usage using the phone every single day by really taking the phone to its limits, And it is a device which I can fully recommend if you guys are looking for a smartphone. That has great cameras, fantastic gaming performance and, of course, a great battery life as well, And with a starting price of ONLY RM1’9 for the 6 plus 128 gigabytes variant, it is surely a smartphone that is going to be totally worth the money. So with this …
