MSRP 499 EURNEX score 67%

Product Overview

Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro (known as POCO F2 Pro) is a powerful mid-range smartphone that features premium components, including the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset as well as LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 memory and flash storage.
The Snapdragon 865 processor gives the K30 Pro / POCO F2 Pro a 20% performance boost over its predecessor while being more efficient. The state-of-the-art LPDDR5 + UFX 3.1 combination allows for thundering read and write speeds. The massive 3435mm2 vapor chamber cooling system, a large multi-layer graphite, and 9 built-in temperature sensors allows the components to be pushed to the limit without fear of thermal throttling.
To offer a consistent viewing experience, the K30 Pro / POCO F2 Pro uses a pop-up front camera, allowing the gorgeous AMOLED display to reach an industry-leading 92.7% screen-to-body ratio.
The K30 Pro Zoom Edition is the first Redmi smartphone to adopt a 3x optical zoom lens. Together with the 64MP, Sony IMX686 camera with a large 1/1.7-inch sensor, the 3x telephoto camera is equipped with 4-axis optical image stabilization (OIS).
Last but not least, both feature a 3.5mm headphone jack with High-Res Audio certification.

The Poco F2 Pro has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor inside with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, depending on the model you buy. The 4,700mAh battery has serious legs, making it even more of a gamer's friend. The camera is inconsistent, and the software needs improvement in a few areas.

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
Xiaomi relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 to power its flagship Poco smartphones. Thanks to its great contrasts and an extraordinarily high maximum brightness, the Poco phone's outdoor usability is convincing even in sunny weather. While the system performance is good and the user experience smooth during daily use, the animations are not as smooth as on a panel with a refresh rate of 90 Hz or more.

Xiaomi's Poco F2 Pro is a great choice for people that want the flagship experience without breaking the bank. It's a 5G-ready phone with excellent battery life, surprisingly good camera, and superb performance. With a price tag of €549 for the base 6GB RAM/128GB storage version and €649 for the top 8GB/256GB storage in Europe, it very well might be!

, though the image optimization that made photos taken with the main camera look good didn't seem to be at work here. In portrait mode, the artificial background blur does look a little more accurate than it does with the rear camera, though now and then we found it having trouble with errant strands of our hair. The Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro has a 4,700mAh battery, which is pretty average for a mid-range phone. The phone will last for about a day between charges - it won't get to a second day with much charge at all, but it should be able to survive a whole day even with heavy use.

Pros
  • Sleek design
  • Good performance

Cons
  • MIUI has too much bloatware
  • No gesture navigation

Xiaomi’s take on Android 10 is actually pretty nice to use. MIUI 12 update is a definite improvement over what came before. You get new split notification and control centre menus in a blatant but successful crib from iOS. Enhanced privacy protection makes you more aware of the information you’re sharing.

Pros
  • Fantastic performance
  • Good battery life
  • Decent performance
