The Poco F2 Pro looks very similar yet distinguishable from the K30(Poco X2), on the Front on F2 Pro We don’t have the Punchhole camera for selfies instead we have a motorized pop-up camera for selfies, on the back we have gradient finish back but the gradient is a bit different from the K30(Poco X2), also the camera module is Circular, but unlike the K30(Poco X2) which has a Rectangular module inside the circular module on F2 Pro, we have a full Circular Camera module.

Conclusion

The Poco F2 Pro is Essentially just a Re branded Redmi K30 Pro with the MIUI 11 being replaced with the Poco Launcher.

The Poco F2 Pro is Great Smartphone with Excellent CPU/GPU, Great memory and storage, Great Camera Setup, Great Build Quality, Great Display, and great Battery, And it certainly doesn’t disappoint like the Redmi K30 4G, but still, it has some flaws like the 60Hz Screen, now when all the flagships are coming with 90/120Hz Screen K30 Pro still has 60Hz Screen.
And the Camera setup could have been better like 64+13+8+2(On K30 Pro Zoom) is a much better option than the 64+13+5+2, but at the same time is much costlier for just a bit better camera, so it all comes down to personal preference, also the Audio Could have been better.

  • Great Build Build Quality
  • Great Display(Lacks a high Refresh Rate)
  • UFS3.0/3.1 Storage
  • Great Camera Setup(One of the Best Macro Camera)
