The Poco F1 is a phone that is going to make Xiaomi’s competitors scared. Why? Simply because Xiaomi was able to build a smartphone with flagship specs and features and offer it for less than a third of the price of the Galaxy Note 9 and Apple iPhone X. That has really caught a lot of people’s attention, as it should. And the good thing here is, that it’s not too good to be true.

What the POCO F1 manages very well is to strike a balance between superior performance and good enough hardware at a price that is irresistible. The screen might not be the best in class and the design is a bit uninspiring but these are small sacrifices for getting the fastest hardware possible, oodles of storage, a camera that is pretty damn good for the price.
