POCO X2 DESIGN

While the previous models of POCO are plain-looking and made of simple plastic in order to remain affordable, but Poco is trying a different approach here with its new model. POCO has a bright, colorful glass rear with a gradient tone and an unusual circular design around the camera strap. The logo of the POCO is at the bottom.

The main design of the phone is the circular patch. At first sight, we thought that Poco X2 has a raised camera module, but it’s just a patch with a smooth finish while the glass around it looks frosted. Poco X2 has this patch which reflection of a convex mirror, and we were able to frame a selfie taken with the rear camera.

With a 6.67-inch screen, this is a large phone in size. It’s still difficult to use the phone with one hand Your attention will be drawn to the wide dual-camera cutout in the upper right corner of the screen – it isn’t too noticeable in ordinary use, but definitely is a distraction when watching a full-screen video.

OTHER FUNCTIONS

The power button on the right side acts as a fingerprint sensor, but in the long run, it’s not a good deal. The fingerprint registration process took a little bit longer than usual Left-handed users will find this placement awkward, and you’ll need to enroll at least two or three fingers so you can unlock the phone when it’s in your hand and on a table.

The volume buttons are above the power button. There’s an infrared emitter on the top, like all other Xiaomi phones. There’s a 3.5mm audio socket, USB Type-C port, and speaker on the bottom of the phone.

Poco says that it has used Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for the front as well as the rear of the protection of X2. You get a clear transparent case for the protection of this phone.

Overall, it seems as POCO wants to establish itself as a brand. This phone is unique and recognizable from the front as well as the back.

POCO X2 SOFTWARE AND SPECIFICATIONS

POCO X2 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, which is the best thing in this price range. This is the same chip that Realme X2 comes with, so we can assume that gaming and general-purpose performance will be solid.

Poco X2 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage is priced at Rs. 15,999; 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage priced at Rs. 16,999; or 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage priced at Rs. 19,999.

The 6.67-inch 2340×1080-pixel display has a killer feature. This is a subtle feature but it really does improve the quality of the user experience, making the Android UI feel smooth and responsive. The company calls this feature “RealityFlow” and it isn’t hard to see why. For gaming purposes, this phone won’t make you sad.

Poco has a 4500mAh battery, dual VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5, GPS, FM radio, and all the standard sensors.

USER INTERFACE

Poco’s UI is identified as Poco Launcher as well as MIUI 11.0.3 in different parts of the UI. It looks and feels like what we’ve seen recently on the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. It’s based on the latest Android 10.

Among the preinstalled apps on Poco X2, you’ll find Mi Pay and Mi Credit, Xiaomi’s apps for UPI transactions and personal loans respectively. There’s are several Mi apps including a Web browser, photo gallery, and calendar, but some others such as Mi Remote, Themes, and Screen Recorder are useful. The third-party apps, including Helo, Gaana, Amazon Shopping, Dailyhunt, Opera, and more, are removable apps.

You can customize the UI interface. Smart touches include a search bar at the bottom of the drawer so you don’t have to stretch and neatly grouped “Special features” in the Settings app. These features include the Game Turbo optimization mode, Quick Reply panels for messaging apps, and Second Space for privacy.
