POCO F5 Pro: Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 And 512GB Memory?!

What are the most common issues or reasons to replace a smartphone? Other than breakages due to falls, many often say that running out of storage is a clear sign of an upgrade. But what if we told you that the POCO F5 Pro is the company’s first smartphone with 512GB of storage onboard, alongside other amazing features that make it an “all-around hardcore” flagship device? Let’s check it out here.

Unparalleled Display

High refresh rates are quite common in today’s smartphone world. What distinguishes the flagships from the pretenders is the resolution: a top-tier device should be able to handle at least the clarity of a WQHD+ panel and the smoothness of a 120Hz refresh rate. Needless to say we have both here.

This will definitely shine when watching a movie or performing any kind of content consumption. To add to that, the colors are vibrant and punchy thanks to AMOLED technology. Finding the two features together is rare and will only usually be seen on top-shelf smartphones. Due to the astronomical pixel density, zooming into tiny details on the screen will prove to be no problem.

Keep in mind that this display isn’t just impressive – it can be used anytime, anywhere. Even in direct sunlight. With 1400 nits of ultra-high brightness, content is always legible. The opposite also holds true at night. The POCO F5 Pro is equipped with 1920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming to reduce eye fatigue and other health problems over the long run.

All-Powerful Chipset With HUMONGOUS Memory

Of course, you’d need an equally-strong chipset to bring crystal-clear content onto the big screen. That’s where the beating heart of the POCO F5 Pro comes in: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.

It’s a flagship chipset and will absolutely crush any game, even the notorious Genshin Impact by running it at a consistent 58FPS on the highest settings possible. Since it uses TSMC’s latest 4nm process, energy efficiency has also been prioritized and optimized.

This results to an Antutu score easily surpassing the 1 million mark.

Peak performance means nothing if it can’t be sustained. The POCO F5 Pro is equipped with advanced heat dissipation thanks to LiquidCool 2.0 and HyperBoost technology, as well as a newly-designed high-efficiency vapor chamber to keep temperatures within manageable levels. This ensures that the device doesn’t randomly thermal throttle or reduce screen brightness during high-stress situations.

Even when you have memory-consuming games open, 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM keeps your multitasking in check. You won’t have to worry about apps crashing or closing unexpectedly during your sessions. 512GB should be more than enough for years’ worth of games, apps, photos, and videos; even for all our power users out there.

All-Day Battery Life

Another stellar feature of the POCO F5 Pro is its long-lasting battery life. It has a 5160 mAh battery which is the largest in the POCO F series among all its iterations. The company is determined to keep the lights running on its most powerful smartphone ever, as long as possible.

Should the battery pack be fully drained, you have two options: both rapid 67W charging or 30W fast wireless charging nurses it back to full health in as fast as 50 minutes. Say goodbye to power anxiety.

Triple-Camera Monster With OIS

Usually, smartphones that carry a lot of power make some compromises in the camera department. But the POCO F5 Pro refuses to fall within that category as it’s equipped with a 64-megapixel main camera leading its triple-lens setup.

On the software side of things, it retains all of the previous generation’s beloved features while adding an “algorithm-enhanced” vintage filter to give off a “film camera” look and feel. Your social media followers will never know that it came from a modern-day smartphone.

Additionally, installing a flagship chipset such as the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 inside the POCO F5 Pro comes with some benefits when it comes to the optical side of things.

Firstly, POCO F5 Pro has a motion capture function which can automatically track objects in quick motion. This makes photoshoots of excited movements, such as lively pet dogs and children, easier than ever. Where other smartphones will falter and give you a blurry photo, the device’s software and hardware work together to project a clear image. 

In addition, you can also take up to 50 photos in a few seconds, easily choose your favorite picture, and don’t have to worry about missing the wonderful moment. Of course, there is no problem if you want to shoot moving videos. The newly supported motion tracking focus can automatically identify the object you want to focus on, and automatically follow the focus without worrying about blurred video focus. 

Want the kicker? 8K video shooting capabilities. Need we say more?

All in all, the POCO F5 Pro is undoubtedly a well-rounded device that ticks all the boxes one would need in a modern-day flagship smartphone. It has content creation, consumption, and everyday usage abilities wrapped up in one neat package.
