The POCO F1 is a device that is considered to be among the top spot in the Value for Money segment in the market. The device has received several performance improvements and addition of some handy features through OTA updates since launch. Despite its ultra affordable price tag for the specification it offers, the software team has been keen on improving the user experience.
The device received support for interpolated 960 fps super slow motion and a dedicated night mode a while back. Recently, the OEM also added Widevine L1 compatibility to the device in a rather surprising move, along with 4K 60fps video recording.
The latest addition to the software comes in the form of Game Turbo Mode, which we first saw at the launch of the Mi 9. Although we are skeptical about the performance improvements, it offers some great usability improvements like real time CPU and GPU monitoring. It can also be used to toggle all notifications and start screen recording from the new toolbox. There was already a Game Mode in the POCO F1 which only cleared the RAM while starting up a game. The new update improves upon the feature to add more functionality.
The successor to the Poco F1, probably the F2 is expected to launch in the following couple of months. We expect the upcoming device to be an improvement upon the current model, rectifying the few cons. As of now, the POCO F1 is the device that has the most active developer community in the price range.
