The smartphone market is a bustling arena, and Poco has made a significant splash with its latest release, the Poco X6. We’ve been putting this device through its paces for the past seven days, and here’s our detailed review. From the unboxing experience to the camera performance, we’ll cover it all.
1. Unboxing Delights
Let’s start with what you get right out of the box. The Poco X6 doesn’t disappoint with the thoughtful inclusion of a screen guard, a powerful 67W charger, and a sleek black cover that not only protects but also enhances the phone’s aesthetic appeal.
2. Design Aesthetics
The Poco X6 boasts a Glasstic sandwich design with boxy edges and a notable camera module. The snowstorm white color adds a touch of elegance, akin to a marble feel. While it tends to attract fingerprints, the white color surprisingly manages to conceal them well.
3. Dazzling Display
The 6.67-inch 120Hz 12-bit AMOLED display is a highlight, featuring a 1.5k resolution and Gorilla Glass Victus. With a peak brightness of 1200 nits, the display is vibrant and sharp. Dolby Vision on Netflix enhances the viewing experience, though HDR content on YouTube remains surprisingly unavailable.
4. Powerful Performance
Under the hood, the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2, LPDDR4X RAM, and UFS 2.2 provide a decent performance. With a commendable Antutu score of 6 lac, the phone handles high graphics settings and gaming quite well, with only slight frame drops in heavy games.
5. Software Quirks
Running on Android 13 with MIUI 14, the software experience comes with a few hiccups. Some apps freeze, and occasional notification issues persist. Bloatware is present, but the promise of updates up to Android 16 is a plus.
6. Extra Perks
The Poco X6 surprises with good stereo speaker quality and decent haptics, considering its price point of 20k.
7. Robust Battery Life
With a 5100mAh battery, the phone charges in just 40 minutes and easily lasts a day. The impressive 6 to 7 hours of screen-on time (SOT) on a single charge is a definite highlight.
8. Camera Performance
The camera setup, shared with the X6 Pro, includes a 64MP OIS camera, 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro lens.
While the photos exhibit good details and natural colors, dynamic range handling can be a drawback.
Night mode shines,
but the ultrawide lens may lose detail in certain conditions. Video recording at 4K 30fps is good for still shots but may not meet expectations for handheld or moving videos.
9. Verdict: Bang for the Buck
Considering the price, Poco has delivered a commendable device. The Poco X6 competes neck-to-neck with the Redmi Note 13 Pro but at a significantly lower cost of 20k, making it a compelling choice. the Poco X6 is a well-rounded smartphone that offers a plethora of features at an attractive price point. While it’s not without its quirks, the overall user experience and value for money make it a solid contender in the mid-range smartphone market.
