POCO M2 Pro Intro
Today I will be telling you about this phone first thing is it is a rebranded redmi note 9 Pro global version. is it worth it? first I would like to tell you that rebrandingis not always bad because if in rebranding you are getting benefits then what’s the problem in this. the benefit of the rebranding is the UI becausein poco UI you don’t get ads. suppose you were planning to buy redmi note9 Pro but instead you are getting a phone which is similar to that and which is ad free and the name of the devices Poco M2 Pro.
The second thing is that you are getting A 33W fast charger in this which you don’t get in the redmi note 9 Pro. in this case this phone will be a better choice but that will be the case when the pricing of this phone is that is if it’s priced less than the Redmi note 9 pro. this phone will be priced around 10,000 To 15,000. I’ve been told that there will be three variants of this phone.
So let’s start with the review and I will tell you if this phone is actually better or not. You are getting seven Snapdragon 720G and A33 watt charger. the design of this phone on the back is exactly like the redmi note 9 Pro. What is the colour profile is a little bit different you are getting a dual tone colour finishing and here are some textured lining. When you getting A33 watt charger
Poco M2 Pro will go on sale on July 14 for the first time at 12 noon only on Flipkart
As you can see here from the back side both redmi note 9 Pro and Poco M2 Pro look exactly the same 48mp camera has been written here while 48mp Quad camera has been written on the top of the camera sensor on the Poco M2 the back colours scheme apart from the camera module has been removed here and the LED flash has been left there.
Also you are getting dual tone on the M2 pro look and feel of the devices that were different in the form factor and the build quality is exactly the same. You are getting Gorilla glass 5 protection on the front and back on both devices. I like the realme 6 design on the back, the lightning pattern looks very good. the design of the Poco M2 Pro is subtle how ever the look and feel of the device is good.
POCO M2 Pro Connectivity
Let’s talk about the connectivity and on the bottom your getting USB type C, headphone jack, a loudspeaker, primary microphone holeon the top you are getting IR blaster and also secondary microphone hole on the right and as you can see you are getting a fingerprint sensor which is a fast and responsive. here you are getting volume rocker on the right hand side. on this side you’re getting a SIM tray which is full size SIM tray so there is no compromise in the connectivity. friends there is no compromise on the build quality of Poco M2 Pro design.
This phone looks good the phone feels a little bit heavier. if you hold this phone then the phone is the aproximity of 209 grams. it feels a little bit difficult is because you are getting a 5000 mAhbattery that results the heaviness of the cult to use in single hand usage. phone and which also makes the phone a little bit thicker. they edges are rounded so you wont feel the difference the glass is curved so you can easily hold this phone.
it makes the phone a little bit slippery andon the back that it will catch smudges very easily but not the scratches. on plastic phones you can get scratches very easily but because here Gorilla glass 5 is given you won’t get scratches not that easily but that will come with time if you don’t use it with a case.
POCO M2 Pro Display
Let’s talk about the display. There are some compromises on the display of this phone. Of you look at the display then you will notice and colour fading. on different viewing angles, you will get different shades of colour that happens in IPS display and that is happening here too. also the display is not that bright. It feels a bit dim. It not like it’s better in Realme phones. In those phones too you will get dim display.
Lets compare the brightness of Poco X2 Proand Poco M2 Pro I have set up both the phones on full brightness bright but I will check it with the help of brightness meter. which one is more brighter this one is 324lux and the Poco X2 is 462 lux so as you can see here both the display look bright but Poco X2 is much brighter. and then here we have realme 6 Pro and Poco M2 Pro I have set up both the phones on full brightness and lets see which one is more brighter lets see the brightness of the phones also none of them are on power-saving mode.
does usual you might feel for the displays are bright but lets check this on brightness meter so this is 358 Lux for realme 6 Pro and Poco M2 Pro IS 383 Lux so as you can see by yourself, there is much difference in terms of brightness of both the phones even when both the phone come at different price point.
POCO M2 Pro Gaming
Just like the redmi note 9 pro you can play pubg on HD and high graphic settings. the game play will lag a lot on this phone however if you play this on a smooth and ultra settings new game play will run very smoothly and you can see the difference here. Friends, in Poco M2 Pro you are getting Snapdragon720G which is a good thing at this price point. getting the fastest storage us us 2.1 using 6 GB of DDR4X RAM storage Ram and processor all three are good in this phone.
POCO M2 Pro UI
In terms of UI you are getting a cleaner version of MIUI on Poco phones in the Poco M2 same case is there. Same the user interface is very smooth and responsive that app drawer opens up very fast however it could have been smoother and that as response also could have been smoother if this were to come at 90 hertz display which is not the case here but if you go into the settings and check the version of MIUI.
when is the new a global version this is not the Indian version and as you can see here it is the 11.0.2 apart from this if we talk about one more thing that was given in the form of new option which is the you can change the app vault so used in redmi phones for Poco phones by default when you go to the left from the home screen you get this app vault.
Spam in a huge quantity is pushed here. there are so many widgets there and you cansee this is so likely and slow touch response he is not that good too if you want you can disable it in this phone however this feature is not available in the Poco X2 but it is available here go to the screen and you can disable app vault here and by disabling this you can enable Google discover. And after enabling Google discover you will see the same case happening here similar to the stock Android phones.
So you can get the Google assistant inter face which can be customized by yourself it is the Google interface so it is a little bit better also you get latest news. Lets test the loudspeaker here and see how loud the loudspeakers.
POCO M2 Pro Camera
Let’s talk about the temperature of so you are getting a 48MP primary camera 8mp wide-angle camera 5mp macro and 2MP depth sensor on the front you’re getting a single 16mp shooter the camera the interface is like this it is exactly the sameas the redmi note 9 Pro you can easily access the 48-megapixel mod you can go up to 2x zoom or in wide-angle you can take the pictures on the top you’re getting a Pro colour mode in which you can enhance the colours better.
You can also enable and disable the HDR mode to go to the macro mode you have to click here and select macro mode and you can select the macro mode the photo photos clarity has come out very good this is the the photo as you can see here the details and the clarity of this picture is very good 5MP macro camera sensor which is a auto focus sensor which takes good quality micro photos this is one more indoor picture so overall I liked the camera.
There is nothing extraordinary here colour for uneven sometimes and you don’t get the exact colours often you get good amount of details on the shots that is front camera shots or rear camera shots.
Finally if I want to conclude this so I would like to tell this that poco m2 pro is the better version of redmi note 9 Pro which is already in the Indian market however usually is not available in stock. Phone will be in stock and this phone is better than that one because you are getting better UI you don’t get any ads and also your getting a fast charger so you can go for Poco M2 Pro I gave a big thumbs up from my side
