POCO M2 Pro Detailed Review

Design

Like we said earlier, the POCO M2 Pro design looks very similar to Redmi Note 9 Pro. The phone is a bit bulky, and you will need some time to get used to it. The good part is that Poco M2 Pro comes with the protection of Gorilla Glass 5 on the front, back, and even on the rear camera module.

When we look at the POCO M2 Pro features, the fingerprint sensor has been incorporated in the power button, and you need to tap it lightly to start the phone. The volume rockers and power button are both on the right side of the M2 Pro Poco, and some people might find it hard to reach the volume buttons.

The single speaker, 3mm jack for headphone and USB port (C-type) are given at the bottom. The front panel has a gorgeous 6.67-in display that supports full HD images and videos. The display has a small punch hole at the centre for the selfie camera. You will be able to purchase the blue, black, or green variant of POCO M2 Pro, but the blue variant looks the best so far.

The POCO M2 Pro Screen is bright and supports a wide range of colors, and the pre-applied screen protector does not affect the brightness of visual appeal of the 4K videos by any means. The Poco M2 Pro design is decent, but there is nothing extraordinary when it comes to the POCO M2 Pro specs, especially if you have handled a POCO or Xiaomi smartphone before.

Summary

Great but it can be better

Performance

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 720 SoC, which is the POCO M2 Pro Processor, is too good, especially at this price point. However, the one area where POCO M2 Pro lags is the refresh rate. A 120Hz refresh rate cannot be expected in a phone that targets the phones that are priced at or near 15K, but 90Hz would have been all right for the M2 Pro POCO

The gaming enthusiasts might be satisfied by the performance due to seamless graphics. Game Turbo is an exciting feature to have because it lets you record your gaming performances live and many other interesting options.

undefined-Performance

The single speaker of POCO M2 Pro isn’t that loud, but the audio can be tweaked when you use the microphones. A stereo speaker would have been much better for the M2 Pro Poco. The MIUI interface works ok, but there are times when it feels a bit snappy.

However, you can open multiple apps for multi-tasking, and the POCO M2 Pro will not disappoint you as the apps get loaded at a blazing speed.

Summary

Great performance at this pricepoint

Camera

POCO M2 Pro Camera setup comprises 4 rear cameras and one front selfie camera. While the POCO M2 Pro tries to impress the audience by giving a macro lens (5MP), a wide-angle lens (8MP), and depth sensor (2MP) along with the huge 48MP main camera, the depth and macro cameras are not of much use for most users.

It would have been better if they had provided at least an 8MP macro camera on the POCO M2 Pro. A good thing is that you can record videos in full HD quality, and the images captured during day time look great.

The main sensor of the M2 Poco Pro captures details perfectly, but the camera app makes the colors appear a bit more bright than necessary. The colors are vivid, and if you need more saturated colors, you can use its Pro color toggle.

undefined-Camera

The wide-angle camera also does a good job, but the details are not so sharp, and the colors are not as vivid as you get with the main 48MP sensor. Poco M2 Pro’s portrait mode turns out to be great as you can adjust the intensity of the background blur.

The camera does an ok job in low light conditions, and the night mode is also not as effective as you might expect. However, you cannot expect much, especially when the POCO M2 Pro Price in India is so cost-effective that it is definitely going to be a tough time for the POCO M2 Pro competitors. The selfies are picture-perfect, and skin textures came out good.

The M2 Pro POCO captures 4K videos at 30fps, but you might find the colors extra warm in this resolution. You will find that the 1080p videos are far better when it comes to color stabilization and tone. Overall, the camera of M2 Pro Poco performs really well but not so well in low light conditions.

Summary

The camera performs fairly well

Battery

The POCO M2 Pro battery is a powerful 5000mAH powerhouse that can sustain an entire day of usage even if you play games and use the camera quite a bit. People who use their phones sparingly might even get a 2-day battery backup.

The 33W charger packed with the POCO M2 Pro does more than a decent job as it charges the phone completely in just an hour. You cannot expect anything more from POCO M2 Pro battery life, especially at this price point.

Summary

Excellent longlasting

P2i Splash Proof Coat

The body of M2 Pro POCO is polished with a P2i coat that is claimed to be water-resistant for occasional splashes. However, it doesn’t mean that this POCO M2 Pro can digest a bucket full of water. It is a cool thing to have, though, and therefore reviewers had to include it in the POCO M2 Pro Reviews.
