Xiaomi is known to be quite aggressive when it comes to pricing its handset compared to other brands in India. Which for most industry reviewers translates to a poor durability because of the stereotypical; you get what you pay for! While it might be true with most Xiaomi phones, it doesn’t look like the case with Xiaomi’s latest POCO F1. Why do we say it? Because Zack Nelson AkA JerryRigEverything believes so!
POCO F1: Surprisingly durable
Well, you don’t have to take our or his word for it, but you should definitely look what he has done with the new POCO F1 on its standard rigging tests. Before you go all bashing about how the Xiaomi has not utilised much metal on its new POCO F1 smartphone you must watch this test below. Note that this test was done on a regular POCO F1 model instead of the one with Kevlar back.
I hope you’re done watching it! Now, what do you reckon with that? Well, you should know by now that POCO F1 is perhaps Xiaomi’s most durable smartphone till date. During various test including scratch, screen burn, and bend test, it holds pretty well considering the price point it retails at. There are phones costlier than this that have failed to amaze us.
Whether you talk about the scratch on screen, front camera, back camera or even on a fingerprint sensor, it keeps you worry-free. Everything is said and done, the most important durability test these days is a bend test, and the POCO F1 passes this with flying colours. It locks out and returns to form immediately with no breakage at all once the flexing is done.
What this could mean is that Xiaomi’s Pocophone F1 will last longer than most cheap premium phones in the market including from Xiaomi as well. Drop your feedback in the comments section below regarding this.
