After Xiaomi launched the POCO F4 GT, the flagship e-sports machine earlier, it launched the POCO F4 in China, minus some e-sports functions, and replaced it with a low-power Snapdragon 870 processor. The performance is still at a certain level, and the price is cheaper and more affordable. It is the thinnest model in the POCO series of mobile phones. Is the price/performance ratio more attractive? Try it now for everyone.
Design & Display
POCO F4 has 3 colors in total, Moonlight Silver, Night Black and Nebula Green, and the editor got Night Black this time. The back of POCO F4 uses a glass mirror design, a straight frame design and a rounded corner design. The design of the entire mobile phone is relatively limited to a rectangle, but the camera module has added a circular design embellishment, and the design is very consistent and makes people look very comfortable. Obviously, the display is also superb, with a huge 120Hz AMOLED panel with a screen diameter of 6.67 inches. We even added a sampling frequency of 480 Hz and hip-hop to get us a great phone for gamers.
The 5G machine Xiaomi Poco F4 has a Snapdragon 870 CPU, 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM, with a running score of 665491 points, all of which are high-end mobile phones.
In playing games, POCO F4 also provides the Game Space function. After this feature is turned on, you can see the games built into the phone. When playing a game, swipe to the right to activate the Game Turbo mode. Players can choose the balanced mode and the performance mode according to their own needs. The latter is relatively more power-hungry, but can improve performance.
In other respects, POCO F4 is equipped with dual speakers, and the sound quality is average for the editor. After turning on the maximum volume, it is obvious that the sound cannot be locked, resulting in a slight popping sound in the played sound.
The Xiaomi Poco F4 main camera has a 64-megapixel wide-angle, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and 2-megapixel macro lens, and the wide-angle lens supports OIS anti-shake function. A wide-angle lens can capture detailed and clear images, but the exposure of the photo is brighter than what the naked eye sees, making the photo look unnatural. Ultra wide-angle photos are equally bright, but the images are not detailed and have purple fringing. Macro lenses can produce natural and detailed colors. OIS optical anti-shake can effectively offset the slight shaking of the user’s hand. In addition to reducing the problem of hand-shake during shooting, it also allows the camera lens to have more exposure time for shooting, improving image quality, especially in low-light shooting. There will be significant progress.
As for charging, F4 has a built-in 4500mAh battery, supports 67W fast charging, and is equipped with a 67W fast charging charger. It only took almost 11 minutes to charge from 0% to 36%, and 42 minutes to charge to 98%. It took 3 minutes to charge from 98% to 100%. One hour of battery life for watching a movie will consume 8-10% more power. If it is not heavy use, the battery life for a day is enough to cope with it.
The system of Xiaomi mobile phones is always in the down mode. F4 has a Poco Launcher interface, and the applications are automatically classified, making application management more convenient. Other system functions are like ordinary Xiaomi mobile phones, such as dual application, application lock, mobile phone clone, screen refresh rate switching, video call skin beauty, speaker cleaning mode, memory expansion function, etc.
As a gaming phone, the shoulder buttons are an advantage, but the experience is not as good as the ASUS ROG Phone series, which is true. However, POCO F4 perfectly surpasses the ROG Phone series in terms of price. With a more powerful Snapdragon 870 processor, less sensitive shoulder buttons and a smooth 144Hz screen refresh rate.
