Xiaomi’s Poco Smartphone series always amuse the fans with mind-blowing specifications under affordable price range. In this legacy, Xiaomi has launched their latest Smartphone Poco M2 Pro on July 7, 2020. If you are looking for a mid-range Smartphone with upright camera features and efficient gaming hardware, do not miss Xiaomi Poco M2 Pro! Let’s see what it has to offer.
Poco M2 Pro features polycarbonate built frame which is acceptable in this budget. On both the front and back side you get glass built construction protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Unlike other mid-range smartphones, its backside is not scratch-hungry. People, who tend to use their phones roughly, can get this Smartphone for regular use. However, using provided back cover you can protect the camera bump from getting damaged.

Overall, this Smartphone appears with a stylish outlook. You can choose among several colors: green, blue, gray and black.
Poco M2 Pro out sizes many pricier competitors with its 6.67-inch screen. IPS LCD capacitive touch-screen display featuring thin bezels (~84.5% screen-to-body ratio) makes this Smartphone look trendy. However, due to the large screen and weight (209g), this gadget may feel a bit hard to hold by one hand. Like the Redmi Note 9 Pro, Poco M2 Pro bears 60Hz refresh rate. Lack of high refresh rate would certainly dishearten the Xiaomi fans once again.
Poco M2 Pro comes with standard resolution (1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratios) and punchy color quality (~395 ppi density). Furthermore, the HDR10 can make your viewing experience more enjoyable than average budget phones. Its screen is equipped with 450 nits typ. brightness performing well in direct sunlight. But you can use the darkness mode to avoid the screen bleeding issue. Due to the punch-hole design you can experience a bit blinky vibe on the display. However, you can find the same issue in any other IPS LCD screen.
Poco M2 Pro has quadruple rear camera series including 48MP main camera, 8MP wide-angle lens, 5MP macro sensor and 2MP depth sensor. The captures of main rear camera are average with good color contrast. But if compared with Redmi Note 7 Pro’s main sensor, the image quality of POCO M2 Pro falls behind. The dynamic range of its wide-angle camera may not impress you.
With the macro sensor you may experience problems while focusing under direct sunlight. Its 16MP front camera is a smart addition, which we have also seen in the pricier Smartphone Redmi Note 9 pro. This Smartphone is programmed with diverse advance features like shutter speed, filtering options, double zooming, night mode, etc.
However, the color accuracy and sharpness of PCO M2 Pro camera series is a bit questionable. People who dislike color boosting may not like its picture output. Though Photo capturing is speed is average, it may take some moments when you shift from one option another. As a mid-range Smartphone Poco M2 Pro offers satisfactory camera performance under good light. But the photo-quality in low light conditions may lack detailing unless you apply the night mode.
You can shoot slow-motion video using both front and back camera. The front can allow you shooting at maximum 1080p@120fps. While the capacity of back camera reaches ranges from 4k@30fps to 720p@960fps. Its built-in internal MIC system can record audio during shooting videos. Furthermore, you can use time lapse, Gyro-EIS technology, and double zooming (2x) feature during capturing videos. However, video quality in low light conditions seems below average.
POCO M2 Pro is blessed with Qualcomm SM7125 Snapdragon 720G (8 nm) chipset. Its octra-core processor is built with two Gold (Kyro 465) cores with 2.3GHZ clock speed accompanied with 6 Silver (Kyro 465) cores with 1.8GHZ clock speed. This Smartphone is enriched with Adreno GPU 618. Though Poco M2 Pro asks for a lower price, its hardware configuration is similar to Redmi Note 9 pro. It is certainly good news for the Poco fans!
This Smartphone runs on Android 10, MIUI 11. Do not worry! Very soon, you can update to the latest MIUI 12 version through an upcoming update. Even at high graphic setting, the gaming performance of POCO M2 Pro is fascinating. After half-an hour gaming, the heating range stays below 42% and the battery drains only up to 5%.
This hyped Smartphone is available in several variants: 64GB by 4GB RAM, 64GB by 6GB RAM, and 128GB by 6GB RAM. It also carries a dedicated slot for MicroSD card. Poco M2 Pro is programmed with required sensors including face-unlock, fingerprint, compass, proximity sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor and gyroscope.
Poco M2 Pro carries a 5020Amh non-removable Li-on battery which is a standard for mid-range budget smartphones released in 2020. On single charge session, this Smartphone can support you for two days, when used moderately. Do not worry about battery draining issue, even if you are a heavy gamer. With the provided 33-Watt fast charging cables, you can recharge this gadget within one and half an hours.
The overall specifications of Poco M2 Pro are quite impressive. But considering the security aspect, this Smartphone may shock the Xiaomi fans. In this Smartphone the built-in security applications called ‘Security Master’ would ask for your permission to access your information. Built by ‘Cheetah Mobile’ Company, this app can track the users, and collect their personal data.
In 2018, this Clean Master was eliminated from Google Play due to its alleged misuses of Users’ data for advertisement fraud. It is a pity that Xiaomi Xiaomi has allowed this unnecessary app in Poco M2 Pro. However, it can be a deal breaker for the security conscious consumers. The face unlock security section opens the system even from side facing, which is weird. It is expected that Xiaomi would remove these security issues on next update.
Poco M2 Pro‘s 64GB/6GB variant is available at 14999 Rs in India. However, in Bangladesh the approximate price range would be around BDT 20,000.
