POCO has unveiled its first flagship phone of the year, the POCO F6 Pro. With the device now in our hands, we’re thrilled to share our firsthand experience and share our thoughts with you.

Design and Construction

From afar, the device’s back panel kinda looks like a plastic-like appearance. However, when you experience it on hand, the device is made of a smooth-textured glass back, complemented by an aluminum frame that not only enhances durability but is also fingerprint and smudge-resistant.

Furthermore, the camera module is also made out of glass which also serves a dual purpose as a functional mirror, adding an element of versatility to its design.

The POCO F6 Pro is a bit heavy weighing 209g, it boasts a sturdy build, yet its slightly slippery surface may be a challenge when handling. To avoid accidental drops, I highly suggest taking advantage of the included case provided in the package.

Looking at its sides, the frame is made out of aluminum. On the right, you’ll see volume rockers and a power button. 

The left side is pretty plain and only antenna bands are present. At the bottom are a speaker grille, a microphone, a dual SIM tray, and a USB C port. And on top is another microphone and another speaker.

This device is available in two colors, which are black and white.


Moving on to its display, the POCO F6 Pro comes with a 6.67” WQHD+AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 2,160 touch sampling rate. This device achieves an impressive peak brightness of up to 4,000 nits, ensuring clarity even under direct sunlight.

I have tried using this outdoors and its brightness is truly impressive. Even under the glaring sun, I can clearly see the texts and vibrant visuals. Its performance in an outdoor setting truly impressed me, reaffirming its status as a standout device in any lighting condition.

The POCO F6 Pro’s AMOLED display and 120Hz refresh rate, elevates both watching and gaming experiences. Colors are rendered with accuracy, so whether you’re into watching your favorite movies, vlogs, scrolling through socials, or even intensive gaming it will surely give you an immersive experience.


Now, let’s dive into POCO F6 Pro’s cameras. This device comes with a triple rear camera setup featuring a 50MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, and a 2MP macro.

The rear camera impresses with its decent performance, capturing vibrant, true-to-life colors. What truly astonished me was its ability to deliver exceptional photos even in low-light conditions.

In terms of the front camera, it boasts a 16MP resolution. I’m particularly fond of the natural-looking photos it produces, with commendable color distribution. Admittedly, it struggles a bit in low-light settings, but activating the dedicated mode significantly enhances photo quality in such conditions.

When it comes to video recording, the rear camera impresses with its ability to shoot in stunning 4K resolution at 60fps, while the front camera delivers crisp 1080 resolution at 30fps. Both cameras offer commendable quality, but what truly stands out is their stability.

I’ve tried taking videos during adventurous activities like dune-bashing in the Desert Safari and the videos remain remarkably steady.

Software and Performance

Let’s talk about its software and performance. Obviously, since this is a flagship device, it is powered by the latest (as of writing) Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset which runs on the Android 14 OS version. 

The POCO F6 Pro comes in 3 variants: 12GB+256GB, 12GB+512GB, and 16GB+1TB. What we have right now is the latter version which is the 16GB+1TB.

Here are some of its benchmark results:

  • Antutu Benchmark V10 – 1,551,302

  • Geekbench 6 CPU –  1,151 (Single-core) ; 4,288  (Multi-core)

  • Geekbench 6 GPU Open CL – 7,558

I conducted a video loop test for 17 hours and 12 minutes with the volume and brightness set at 50%. I’ve also tried playing Mobile Legends with it, and the chipset is actually doing a great job as it was able to run smoothly in the highest frame rate and graphics settings which is the ultra mode.

This device comes with a standard 5000mAh battery which is partnered with 120W HyperCharge.

In our standard video loop test where its brightness and volume are at 50%, the POCO F6 Pro lasted for 17 hours and 12 minutes before the battery total ran out.

When it comes to charging, it took us about just 20 minutes from 0% to 100%.

 POCO F6 Pro Conclusion

Now that we’ve talk about the technicalities of the POCO F6 Pro, let us now hop on to its pricing. This device is available in three different variants; 12GB+256 GB which is priced at PHP23,699; 12GB+512GB which is priced at PHP25,399; and the 16G+1TB for PHP29,999.

Overall, the POCO F6 Pro stands out as a highly competitive phone. It may not have the absolute best camera, but it makes up for it with the latest Snapdragon chipset (as of writing) and the option for a 1TB storage capacity with 16GB of RAM. I’m really impressed by its amazing screen too.

Plus, the fact that you can get a version with such extensive storage and RAM is uncommon in smartphones. Despite its flaws like the camera struggling in low light and its slightly heavy build, it’s still a great deal. POCO seems to be offering top-notch features without breaking the bank. I’m eagerly anticipating what they come up with next!
