Successes and failures of the POCO F4 after a month of use
During this month, our colleague from Urban Tecno used the POCO F4 as a personal mobile, which allowed him to conclude in more detail what are your favorite aspects of the device, and also those that fail to convince you.
Starting with the design, we can assure you that this POCO F4 is a comfortable mobile in the hand, it gives a very good feeling when we grab it. It can get slippery of course, so it’s best to use the silicone cover that comes in the box to use it safely and avoid stupid drops.
Let’s not forget that this affordable high-end processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G, which already gave us a very good feeling when we analyzed it in Oneandroid. After a month nothing has changed and the chip is still a beast that moves any app with ease. Also, don’t overheat something that’s always positive.
This POCO F4 comes with MIUI 13 based on Android 12, an operating system that offers good performance in addition to being current. As they confirm to us from Urban Tecno, the mobile experience is good with no serious errors like reboots or app crashes.
A disadvantage of this smartphone may be the location of the fingerprint sensor on the right side. As our colleague rightly points out, that spot makes you accidentally touch the sensor every time you pick up the phone, causing the phone to vibrate or wake up the screen without you wanting to. As usual, it’s a matter of taste, maybe you also prefer the sensor on the screen, or you like it better on the back.
The experience with the POCO F4 is good after a month of use, both for its power and for the smooth operation of the software.
As we said at the beginning, one of the differences between the POCO F3 and the POCO F4 is that the latter equips an optical stabilizer on its main camera. However, taking into account our colleague’s experience, this element is not doing its job as it should. In videos the stabilization is not good while some photos have watercolor effect which is nothing good. In addition, regarding the photographic system, we must also emphasize the loss that the disappearance of the 5 MP telemacro sensor.
Looking at the technical sheet, we see that the POCO F4 also mounts a 4,500mAh battery. How is your performance? Well, let the terminal arrive perfectly at the end of the day, with about 5 hours of screen time. If you use it lightly, it can even exceed that day of autonomy. Plus, it’s fully charged in just half an hour thanks to 67W fast charging, another improvement over the POCO F3 (67W).
