The Poco X2 has finally been launched in India and based on on-paper specifications alone, it is a highly appealing smartphone for its price. The Poco X2 may not be as powerful as the Poco F1 but it certainly is an all-rounder in many ways. Unlike the F1, the Poco X2 focuses on design, build quality, cameras and the overall user experience. And, when you consider the starting price of Rs 15,999, the Poco X2 comes across as the best value for money phone you can buy today, even better than the Poco F1.
But what about the Poco F1? If you head over to Flipkart, you can still see a few variants of the Poco F1 selling at the same prices as the Poco X2. In fact, the base Poco F1 with 128GB storage is still selling for Rs 14,999, which is actually cheaper than the Poco X2. Hence, if you want to buy a performance-oriented phone from the house of Xiaomi, which one should you choose? Is the old warrior still capable of fighting the new kid on the block?
