Pocophone F1 beats Apple iPhone XS Max in speed test

Recently, Apple has released its three new iPhone models which have been taking the spotlight since their release. iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and all new iPhone XR are the new models with different prices and different screen sizes. The iPhone XS Max comes at a whopping price tag of $1,499 for the 512GB storage model –the largest screen and storage on any iPhone ever. All of them are powered by the A12 Bionic processor (which Apple claims to be the most powerful chip in a smartphone).

But Xiaomi’s Pocophone F1 has disrupted the market since its rumours. The $300 smartphone sports features that are comparable to any other flagship out there. The phone comes with a dual-cameras setup at the back, 20MP selfie-camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8 GB Ram, 4,000 mAh battery for juicing your whole day, and QuickCharge 3.0 with the brick in the box. All of these features at the price of $300 make it unbelievable.

Many YouTubers have come up with videos on speed-test between iPhone XS Max and Pocophone F1. One of them is here, and you will be surprised to see the result.

The Verdict

Pocophone is the winner here. It loads most of the apps faster and has the liquid cooling technology to prevent the phone from overheating. Liquid cooling technology at this price point is a win-win for everyone. Overall, while the display of the phone might not be as crisp as most of the flagships, but all of its drawbacks are subdued in front of its price tag.

However, one may note that the video only shows how fast the apps load on each phone. It doesn’t show how well both the phones handle the apps during usage.

One more thing, did you notice how apps refresh when they are reopened in the iPhone after some time? iPhones only have 3 GB of RAM so it’s natural for them to store fewer apps on its memory. Pocophone has 8 GB of RAM, so it definitely has more physical memory to keep the apps running in the background. But it is in no way a benchmark of how powerful one phone is. Apple can yet handle lot more apps in the background with lesser RAM.
