Recently, Poco launched its first smartphone brand in India as an independent brand after splitting from Xiaomi. Poco was identified with the popular Poco F1. However, it has been more than a year since that model was launched. Poco is now working on her own. However, the company will use many of Xiaomi's resources to survive in the market in the near future. Both the specification and the name make it clear that the Poco X2 is not an upgrade model of the existing Poco F1. This phone comes with a significantly different design style than the Poco F1.

Even after Poco became an independent brand, people are expecting the company to price aggressively compared to other brands, and to a lesser extent the company has managed to do so. For just Rs 15,999, the Poco X2 takes on its rival Realme X2 in the market and to some extent also outshines the Redmi K20 and Redmi Note 8 Pro.

Will Poco once again wreak havoc in the Indian market, and will its new phone usher in a new era of competition? To know the answer to all these questions, let's start a review of the company's new weapon Poco X2.

Poco X2 design:

Poco X2
On the one hand, in order to keep the price to a minimum, Xiaomi has made Poco F1 made of simple plastic, due to which the phone looks quite plain. On the other hand, with Poco X2, Poco is trying a different approach. In the new phone, we get a bright, colorful glass back with gradient finish. Apart from this, a circular design around the camera module also gives the phone a completely different look. We had the Atlantis Blue color unit of the phone to review. However you can also buy Poco X2 in Phoenix Red or Matrix Purple color. Poco's branding is given in the back of the phone.

The center of attraction in the Poco X2's design is the circular design around its camera module. This design looks 3D and at first glance you will feel as if the camera module has a circular load around it. The camera module has four cameras set. The camera module is slightly more bumpy than necessary.

With a 6.67-inch screen, it is undoubtedly a big phone. However, the 20: 9 aspect ratio of the display makes it somewhat easy to use. Despite being shiny, its back panel is not slippery, due to which it has a good grip. However, when using the phone with one hand, it may be a bit difficult for you to access all parts of the screen with the thumb. The wide cutout given for the two selfie cameras in the top right corner of the screen can grab your attention many times. In normal use, it won't bother you much, but can definitely reduce your experience a bit while watching full screen video.

Poco X2 fingerprint sensor:

The fingerprint sensor is also fitted in the power button on the right side of the phone, but it is long and thin, which is not good in my eyes. This makes the fingerprint register process take longer than normal. Users who use the phone with their left hand will find this fingerprint setup a bit strange.

The volume buttons are set above the power button, due to which it is sometimes difficult to access them with one hand. Like most Xiaomi phones, an infrared sensor has been given at the top of the phone. The SIM tray on the left side of the Poco X2 is hybrid, so if you want to install a microSD card, then you have to sacrifice your second SIM. The 3.5mm audio socket, USB Type-C port and speaker are provided at the bottom.

Poco says that  Poco X2 uses Gorilla Glass 5 at the front as well as at the rear. Along with the phone, the company also offers a transparent case, which can protect the phone from minor scratches to some extent. Apart from this, you also get a SIM tray ejecting pin, a 27 watt charger and a USB Type-C cable in the phone box.

Overall, it seems that Poco X2 wanted to distinguish itself as a brand with this phone. We cannot directly say that the design of the phone is absolutely the best, but this phone is definitely unique from the front and back. However, we would have liked this phone with a slightly less bright color.

 Poco X2 specifications and software:

Poco X2 cannot be considered an upgrade of Poco F1 as we have mentioned earlier. Even the company has not tried to offer this phone with flagship grade features like Poco F1 at a low price. However, in this phone you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset, which is a good thing. This cheapset is against Poco.
