Hello Guys! Today I’m going to make a full specifications comparison between the Poco Phone F1 Vs OnePlus 6T. And now we will see which phone is better for your money. So, Let’s start-
Design & Build: –
The OnePlus 6T has the better design and build, I mean it has a premium looking glass back, slim bezels all around, a tiny chin and a small notch. It just seems beautiful, to be honest as far as not just go.
On the other hand, the Poco f1 comes in a plastic back, slim bezels but a huge chin and huge notch. So the OnePlus 6T feels like the most premium phone so when it comes to looks and feel the OnePlus 6T gets the point.
Biometrics & Security: –
Moving on to the most significant changes in the OnePlus 6T is new in Display fingerprint scan. Now, I’ve been using the OnePlus 6T for quite some time, and the fingerprint scanner is decently fast and better than the other phones within display scanners, so that’s great. But if you ask me, I prefer the consistency that our physical fingerprint scanner and so I like the Poco F1 Phone here.
Apart from fingerprint scanners there’s also Face Unlock on both these phones and while the OnePlus 6T is blazing fast Face Unlock is fantastic.
The Poco F1 Phone brings an IR to face Unlock which means you can unlock it with your face in even pitch dark conditions and that’s something you can’t do with the OnePlus 6T at least not reliably.
So, here comes the biometrics and unlocking methods, the Poco F1 is the winner.
The Poco F1 Phone comes with an IPS LCD display with the dated Gorilla Glass 3, and the OnePlus 6T comes with an AMOLED display with the latest Gorilla Glass 6. Look, I like the screen on Poco F1 especially considering its price, but the OnePlus 6T’s AMOLED display is just a lot better.
I mean it has all the AMOLED advantages, the blacks are deep, the viewing angles are great, everything looks stunning. Its just the better than the display on the Poco F1.
Moving on to the audio capabilities on both these phones this is where the Poco F1 is the winner. So the OnePlus 6T like the previous OnePlus flagships comes with a single bottom firing speaker which is good enough and gets loud, but the Poco F1 has stereo speakers which sound good.
I like it better than the OnePlus 6T plus you know what the Poco F1 has the 3.5mm headphone jack, and that alone is enough to give it the points.
Both the phones come with great dual camera setups so how do they fare against each other? Well, let’s cut to the chase when you will capture photos from these smartphones you will see the OnePlus 6T takes better in the Poco f1 beat in daytime and low-light. The 6T pictures are sharp would have more details and just a lot better.
When it comes to Portrait mode both the OnePlus 6T and Poco F1 are hidden miss. Sometimes the Poco F1 gets the better photo with more natural colour and other times the OnePlus 6T gets the better background blur at better colours. So, it’s a little confusing.
In the videos, however, the OnePlus 6T is the clear winner. The 6T video not only looks great. It’s also most stable thanks to the EIS + OIS combo.
The same is the case when it comes to the selfies as well the OnePlus 6T is 16-megapixel selfie camera takes sharper and more detailed selfies than the 20-megapixel camera on the Poco F1. Look, the Poco F1 has decent cameras for the price, but the OnePlus is just miles ahead, points to the OnePlus 6T.
Both the phones are flagship trade with the same Snapdragon 845 went up to 8GB of RAM. So, naturally, both the Poco F1 and the OnePlus 6T handle day-to-day tasks with ease, beat multitasking, launching apps or anything else. It’s not just the daily tasks, both the phones run intensive games and apps like PUBG mobile and Asphalt 9 well. So, I’m going to give both the phones a tie.
So that was that, but one area where both of these phones differ, and that’s the software. Both the phones have Android Pie on-board, but the OnePlus 6T has oxygen OS, and the Poco F1 has MIUI. While I like the MIUI for Poco because it’s fast and it’s got all the features you need, and it has a ton of customisation options.
But if you ask me, I prefer Oxygen OS because its close to Stock Android, it’s bloatware free and it’s got all the features I need plus Oxygen OS it’s just a way more polished experience than MIUI. To me the Oxygen OS is just perfect, so I’ll give the points to the OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 6T comes with a massive 3700 milliamp-hours battery, and the Poco F1 comes with slightly larger 4000 milliamp-hours battery. So there’s no doubt that both of these phones have some fantastic battery life.
Well, in our usage both the OnePlus 6T and Poco F1 easily last more than a day in the usual day to day usage. I mean I know, the Poco F1 lasts a bit longer than the OnePlus 6T but it’s not a huge difference really, and I think both the phones have amazing battery performance.
However, when it comes to charging that’s where the OnePlus 6T takes the game, the 6T takes just an hour and 15 minutes to go 10 to 100% whereas the Poco F1 takes 2 hours to from 10 to 100%, so the difference here is enormous and trust me faster charging makes up a huge difference.
So the OnePlus 6T is an outright winner with a Poco F1 Phone lagging on almost every way. I mean the OnePlus 6T brings a more premium design and build, a better display, great cameras, and a more polished software experience when compared to the Poco F1.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying the Poco F1 is a bad phone in-fact I think if you’re on a budget of around rupees 20,000 you should get the Poco F1 Phone because it’s one of the most value for money smartphones you can get and it offers performance and features that up unmatched in its price bracket.
However, if you do have a budget of rupees 40,000, you should know that you’re getting a better phone in the OnePlus 6T.
