Its 120Hz display is smooth, the performance is great, the battery lasts long, and the Sony IMX686 gives great-looking pictures. In the end, I think the devi...

After so long, POCO entered the market with the POCO X2. It's a mid-range device that's just a rebranded Redmi K30 for the non-Chinese market. Its 120Hz display is smooth, the performance is great, the battery lasts long, and the Sony IMX686 gives great-looking pictures. In the end, I think the device could have been so much more. I hope the next iteration of POCO will fulfill what it was meant to be in the first place.

Want the 64-megapixel Sony camera? The X2 is the one. Most importantly, if you want a fast and smooth user experience with loads of customisation options, the Poco X2 is currently beating everything in its class. At a starting price of Rs 15,999, it's hard to believe what Poco has to offer. My only gripe with the Poco X2 is its chintzy colours and the massive size.

The 120Hz refresh rate display is something really good to see in this segment, but as of now, there’s not much you can do with it. So buying this smartphone just for that display is moot. Having said that, the Snapdragon 730G at a price of Rs 15,999 is pretty amazing. The performance chops it brings to the table can be harnessed to support just about any game or app right now. The camera setup needs more polish which we hope gets improved with future updates, but it’s really the software and the menace of unsolicited notifications that mars the experience.

Every bit better than the POCO F1

from XDA Developers

Looking at its price, the value that the POCO X2 offers is in line with other devices in the Xiaomi ecosystem. The POCO X2 supersedes the POCO F1 and is better than the latter in almost every sense with its bigger and smoother display, an improved and more versatile camera setup, better performance, a bigger battery, and so on.

Redefines value for money

from Mashable

While the POCO X2 while might not be the POCO phone you were expecting it to be, a flagship, it’s still a great smartphone that I’ll recommend to anyone buying a phone in the sub-20k segment. The 120Hz display, enjoyable quad-camera setup, great performance, and 27W fast charging really give the phone a well-rounded appeal.

A great smartphone

from BGR

Poco X2 was not launched as the successor to Poco F1. It was launched as a mid-range smartphone with few unique features. It is a great smartphone fundamentally, but novel features like 120Hz display don’t take your breath away. Also, it is not quite a leap over Realme X2. You won’t be making any mistakes if you get the Poco X2.
