POCO F2 Pro 256gb: Overview
Xiaomi released the POCO F2 Pro 256GB in May of 2020 in the markets. The SmartPhone packs amazing-build with notable-specifications. The phone costs only about AED1,859.00 in Dubai, UAE. It is going for considerably a higher price than the POCO F1.
Despite its considerably lower price than a true-flagship phone, Poco F2 Pro 256gb boasts a premium-build. It is made from Gorilla Glass 5 with an extra-solid aluminum frame supporting the build. The phone has a silky smooth frosted matte finish.
The phone has a dimension of 163.3 x 75.4 x 8.9 mm and weighs about 219 grams. The phone is a bit thick and hefty, but the color variations of Neon Blue, Phantom White, Electric Purple, and Cyber Gray make the phone look and feel elegant.
The Dual SIM phone has Gorilla Glass 5 on the back and the front as a protection mechanism. Gorilla Glass also enhances the appeal and elegance of the phone.
The phone has an unusual back design with X shaped arrangements for the cameras. Although the Poco F2 Pro 256GB has some sleek looks, its build isn’t premium. It doesn’t have an IP rated waterproofing.
The Phone interface is the POCO-Launcher 2 based on Android 10.0 with an MIUI 11 on top. The interface is the same as other Xiaomi Phones but has an app drawer by default. The app drawer has a search bar at the bottom for an easier-reach. The super-customizable UI provides users with immersive user experience.
The Poco F2 Pro uses a Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 (7 nm+) chipset with an Adreno 650. This combination is one of the greats in the smartphone world. You can render heavy-duty games with ease and play at their highest settings.
The device has a built-in game turbo mode for gamers. You can control the game features and settings. The mode provides an individual profile for each game, which allows you to control the settings independently.
The Poco F2 Pro comes with two variants of RAM, a 6GB (LPDDR4X) and an 8GB (LPDDR5). You can either choose a 128GB 6GB RAM or a 256GB 8GB RAM F2 Pro. With these values, you will never run out of space. The sad thing about the storage is it is not expandable.
Poco F2 Pro 256GB has a 6.67 inch, Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. It is a significant upgrade over the IPS LCD on the original Poco F1. The screen supports 16 M color depth for vibrant colors and shades. The display system has a 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution with 395 PPI density.
You get deeper blacks than an LCD can provide, and the brightness is impressive 500 nits normally. You can enjoy the boost-up up to 850 nits in auto-mode. The colors are decent, and you can always optimize them in settings.
There is support for HDR 10+ content as well. The phone doesn’t have a trendy refresh rate. It just has a regular 60 Hz refresh rate, but there is a fast 180 Hz touch sampling rate.
Like many SmartPhone with the sAMOLED screen, the Poco F2 Pro has makes the use of honor display fingerprint reader. This saves space on the body, and at the same time, it is reliable and fast.

You get a 3.5mm jack port for connecting external sound systems.
With the 4700 mAh battery, the f2 Pro has surprisingly a high 120 hours of endurance-rating on a snapdragon 865 chipset. It is the best rating for a phone with the chipset.
