Poco X2 : Beast Or Busted?

Checkout our review for Poco X2

The most awaited Xiaomi’s subranded Poco F2 was expected to launch mid last year. But, all of a sudden, what we get is Poco X2. So, is it a Beast or does it get Busted? check out..
Now, following the legacy of Poco F1, what all does it inherit the legend is given below:-

  1. The Liquid-cooling technology
  2. P2i splash-proof coating
  3. USB 2.0 Type C Port
  4. Full HD IPS LCD Screen

And that’s pretty much it. Rest everything is changed.

The Internals are no longer Flagship grades but, 8nm Snapdragon 730G which is Octa-core (2×2.2 GHz Kryo 470 Gold & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 470 Silver) which focuses mainly on gaming supported with Adreno 618.

The display is huge 6.67 inches 1080P IPS LCD Screen that supports HDR10 with a whopping 120hz refresh rate.

There are half a dozen cameras in total. 4 at the rear & 2 in front.

The back cameras are:-
1. Sony IMX 686 Sensor: 64 MP, f/1.9, 26mm (wide), 1/1.7″, 0.8µm, PDAF
2. 8 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide), 1/4.0″, 1.12µm
3. 2 MP, f/2.4, (macro), 1/5.0″, 1.75µm
4. 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth)
Dual-LED flash, HDR, panorama & shoots [email protected], [email protected]/120fps, [email protected]; gyro-EIS

Front Pill-shaped notch houses 2 Cameras:-
1. 20 MP, f/2.2, 27mm (wide), 1/3.4″, 0.8µm
2. 2 MP, f/2.4, 1/5″, 1.75µm, depth sensor
Supports HDR & shoots [email protected]

It has changed the entire look & feel. unlike poco f1 which was plastic, this X2 is made up of glass both in front as well as back. Hence, the phone feels bulky & at times uneasy to operate single-handedly.

Battery is now 4500mAh with a Super fast 27W charger that comes in the box. It claims to charge the phone from 0-100% in just 68 minutes.

THE VERDICT

Here it goes

Though the cameras are pretty amazing & the looks are impressive, the processor should have been Flagship. The housed hardware is super powerful, but the processor fails to meet the needs of it’s own hardware.
Rest all is super impressive & for 20K, 8/256GB is bang for the buck, given the plethora of features will suffice for 3 upcoming years easily.
