Back then, the Poco F3 was a hit, perhaps the biggest since the original Poco F1. While nowhere near that phone’s price point, it’s still very well priced for a “flagship killer” and the specs are on point. This naturally has us very interested in its successor, the Poco F4, and whether it does a good job of replicating the F3’s formula. Now that it’s been on the market for a while, we feel like we can get a more accurate glimpse. Plus, it’s getting some software updates, so any initial issues should be ironed out. With all of this in mind we decided to put it to the test for a longer period of time, living it day in and day out as our only smartphone, to create this long term review, designed to give you an idea of what it’s like as a daily driver .
We’ve said it from the beginning – this is a weird one. It launched with the same SoC as its predecessor, which is surprising enough, but checking European pricing currently reveals something even more surprising: basically no price cuts, even now, more than five months after its release is also like this. This is definitely not par for the Poco class. 2022
Since the prices are fairly similar to the F3’s before the F4 came out, we’re going to take a wild guess and say we don’t think many owners of the former decide to buy the latter, which is probably for the best. Maybe the F5 will bring worthy upgrades soon, we’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, let’s try to determine where the
Good or bad to buy Poco F4 at the end, in a very crowded field. We’re referring to mid-range territory, though its chipset choice actually places it in an odd middle-ground between traditional mid-range and “flagship killer” (must be equipped with a newer SoC). Join us in the next few pages as we unpack what it all means, what the pros are, and what cons you should expect if you choose one of these in the near future.
