Friends who are obsessed with mobile games will not hesitate to buy a reliable mobile phone partner. Otherwise, how can there be so many super and flagship mobile phones? However, in addition to these exaggerated models, more reasonably priced models are always needed to satisfy the wider public.Poco, a Xiaomi friend factory that is cost-effective, has recently launched a Qualcomm S870 Poco F3, Aimed at the more general e-sports players. Our Engadget Chinese version takes the opportunity of the launch of this mobile phone in Hong Kong, and is the first to bring everyone a sharing experience.
Poco F3 is a 6.67-inch 20:9 long-ratio mobile phone, but because it only uses a flat screen design, and the middle frame is slightly larger than the screen, it will feel wider in the hand, but it also has Better protection against accidental touches, so it’s not a big problem either. On the matte middle frame with chamfered modification, the I/O layout is a common design. The power button and volume button that also serve as a fingerprint reader are placed on the right side. There is a 5G dual SIM slot and USB-C underneath. The F3, which is not a flagship, actually has a dual-speaker combination, and it also has a hole on the top of the camera. It does not only sound in the earpiece, which brings a relatively average stereo sound, and it will not surprisingly support Dolby panoramic sound.
It may be predicted that players may be so excited that they will crash. The Poco F3 uses Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and rear of the fuselage. In the white version tested, the hyperboloid machine back is equipped with a matte pearly white, which looks quite textured, and it has not become very homey or exaggerated because of the positioning of e-sports. It is generally used in a large body.
The long camera module in the upper left corner is a two-layer design. The first layer is a shiny veneer, printed with the words emphasizing the 48MP triple camera, and there are also LED fill lights and luminosity sensors; the second layer is two large There are two small openings for three cameras and microphones. Fortunately, the module is not too high, probably wearing a protective cover can offset the height difference.
In the camera module of Poco F3, a 48MP f/1.79 wide-angle camera that supports four-in-one pixel, a 119° 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 5MP telephoto camera that can double as a macro are placed.
Since it is an e-sports phone, the screen specifications are naturally stronger. Poco F3 uses a 6.67-inch FHD+ (2,400 x 1,080) AMOLED panel, which supports 120Hz high-fluency display, and more importantly, it has the industry’s cutting-edge 360Hz touch response. Rate, provide a bright and sensitive screen experience. After all, due to positioning and cost, this screen can only be selected between 60Hz and 120Hz, but with the agile feel of operation, the editor feels smooth and smooth when playing games, which is comparable to the flagship of e-sports.
For audio-visual entertainment, this screen also supports HDR10+ display, and has a peak brightness of 1,300 nits. It is also good to watch videos with dual stereo speakers. And although Poco F3’s selfie camera is a perforated screen placed in the center of the top of the screen, the size of the opening is small, which does not affect the picture too much.
Hardware specifications / performance
Poco F3 is a high-end e-sports mobile phone, but it is not positioned to the current flagship level. How to configure the core specifications? In fact, it is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, an upgraded and upgraded 7nm processor. The S870 is actually enhanced from the S865 Plus that was only launched in the middle of last year, allowing the Kryo 585 CPU clock to increase to 3.2GHz, maintaining the same Adreno 650 GPU. In other words, the flagship processors in recent years have redundant performance, coupled with the battle of 5nm chips, so that the S870 becomes another way out.
The tested Poco F3 high-end model, using 8GB LPDDR5 RAM + 256GB UFS 3.1 storage space, can perform smoothly when playing high-demand games. Among the performance evaluation tools, Poco F3 scores are also good, 3D Mark Wild Life can have 4,168; Geekbench 5 is Single Core: 987 / Multi Core 3,331, the score is almost the same as that of Xiaomi Mi 11 with S888. There is also a 4,520mAh in the phone, which supports 33W fast charging, but does not have Qi wireless charging and reverse charging functions.
But in addition to the numbers, of course the editor also actually played games. Poco F3 operates smoothly in the relatively simple “Brawl Star”, and the burn-in “Bang Huai 3rd” is not as hot as the S888 model. It can be seen that the S870 mobile phone has no shortcomings in practicality, but the specifications are not as high as the peak.
to sum up
With a lot of flagships fighting each other, Poco F3 chose to be equipped with a higher-end processor of the next level, but after all, it is still the flagship of last year and has been upgraded, so the performance is absolutely no problem, but there is no S888 It’s overheating. Of course, on the card, Poco F3 lacks many certifications and fancy features, but it does have some parts for e-sports, so it can be regarded as a simple e-sports mobile phone. More importantly, the price is not high. A sufficiently powerful mobile phone can be purchased for two to three thousand Hong Kong dollars. It is a model that can be considered for consumers with different backgrounds such as dual-streaming, low budget, and so on.
