Poco F4 Long Term Review – GSMArena.com Tests
At the time, the Poco F3 was a huge hit, perhaps the biggest since the original Poco F1. While a far cry from the price of this phone, it was still priced very well for a “flagship killer”, and the specs were spot on. This naturally made us very interested in its successor, the Poco F4, and whether it was able to replicate the formula of the F3 well or not.
Now that it’s been on the market for a while, we think we can get a closer look at that. Also, it got a few software updates, so any initial issues should have been sorted out. With all that in mind, we decided to take it for an extended ride, living with it day in and day out as our one and only smartphone to create this long-term review that aims to give you an idea of what it’s all about. is. as a daily driver.
We’ll say it upfront – it’s weird. It launched with the same SoC as its predecessor, which was quite surprising, but checking European prices currently reveals something even more surprising: there’s been hardly any price drop even now, more than five months after its release. It is certainly not the same for the course of Poco.
Given that the price is quite similar to what the F3 was before the F4 arrived, we’ll take a guess and say that we don’t think many owners of the former decided to buy the latter, which is probably for the best. Maybe the F5 will bring some worthwhile upgrades soon, we’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, let’s try to determine the purchase quality of the Poco F4 at the end of 2022, in a very crowded field. We mean the mid-range realm, though its choice of chipset actually puts it in an odd mid-range position between traditional mid-range and ‘flagship killers’ (to qualify as it would have to sport a newer SoC) . Join us over the next few pages as we decode what it all means, what pros and cons you should expect if you choose to get one in the near future.
