POCO, the mobile manufacturer known as a subsidiary of Xiaomi, has taken the leap and established itself as a brand completely independent from the Chinese giant.

This fact, added to the large terminals that the company has launched since 2018, leads us to dedicate an article so that make you fully aware of his interesting proposal.

In this buying guide, we show you the list with all the mobiles that make up the Pocophone catalog. Finally, if you can't choose between one of them, we select which is the best POCO from our point of view.

But before talking to you about its catalog, let's find out what the main features of the Pocophone brand, a name that is becoming increasingly important in the vast mobile phone market.

What features does the Pocophone brand have?

Pocophone, or POCO, is a brand that was born under the shelter of Xiaomi in 2018. The main strategy of the company was to launch high-end terminals with a more adjusted price than those of its competition. This is how we saw it in the Pocophone F1, a mobile that changed the market thanks to its great value for money.

Not counting on luxuries and impressive specs, POCO terminals are focused on offer a fast and powerful user experience with an irresistible price. As the company itself states, technology matters above all in its products.

On the other hand, the company also wants to be characterized by listening to its users and introducing their requests in its new models. For now, in 2020 we have been able to see a great bet in their new phones, which have come to fight hard to succeed in the high, medium and low range.

Another important fact for POCO in 2020 is that it has officially become an independent brand of Xiaomi, as Redmi has already done.

Despite this change, POCO has committed to keep the same philosophy: create advanced mobiles at a low price, with a personality of its own, and listen to what your community has to say.

At the moment, there is no further data on what this separation truly means, for example, whether it will continue to share design and research resources with Xiaomi. POCO has not yet developed its own software, so we imagine that their mobiles will continue with MIUI.

POCO announced in November 2020 that there was sold more than 6 million units of its different models to date. The past has been interesting, but the future looks even more successful for a brand that is little by little more known among users.

If you still do not know the mobiles that make up the current POCO catalog, you can discover them below.

All Pocophone mobiles

Unlike Xiaomi, POCO is not a manufacturer that launches dozens of different models every year, something that makes it easier for us to clearly differentiate all the members of its catalog.

As we have already mentioned, the first mobile that saw the light was the Pocophone F1, a true revelation of 2018. In addition to the family LITTLE F, the company also has the series POCO X, POCO M and POCO C.

Since that first launch in 2018, the company made us wait almost two years to see its new terminals. This drought of launches has ended in 2020, the year in which POCO has presented several phones, some of them Xiaomi models disguised as the brand itself has recognized.

Currently, these are the POCO mobiles that you can buy:

POCO F2 Pro

Little F2 Pro rear

This is the rear of the POCO F2 Pro.

The actual Pocophone flagship is he POCO F2 Pro, one of the best high-end mobiles you can buy this year.

This mobile, which inherits many of the characteristics of the Redmi K30 Pro, stands out in the first place for a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen, Full HD + resolution and up to 1,200 nits of maximum brightness.

If you are looking for power, the POCO F2 Pro has plenty thanks to the processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, which is accompanied by 6 or 8 GB of RAM depending on the version. As for the operating system, it has MIUI 11 based on Android 10.

The quality of the phone is also reflected in the photographic system, with four cameras on the rear with 64 MP main sensor and a 20 MP “pop-up” front camera. Autonomy will not be a problem either, since it integrates a 4,700 mAh battery with 30W fast charge.

Power, performance, cameras and battery are the main characteristics of this terminal, in which we miss a higher refresh rate. However, this inconvenience loses importance when seeing its price, less than 550 euros.

POCO X3 NFC

LITTLE X3.

The rear of the POCO X3.

If POCO wanted a piece of the pie from the crowded mid-range of the market in 2020, it has achieved it with its remarkable POCO X3 NFC, a terminal with a value for money difficult to match.

For a price of around 200 euros, this POCO X3 NFC offers you a 6.67-inch IPS screen with 120 Hz refresh rate and Full HD + resolution. Power is assured with the processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G, which is accompanied by 6 GB of RAM.

Despite this high refresh rate, autonomy is remarkable thanks to a 5,160 mAh battery which is fully charged in 1 hour and 20 minutes thanks to the 33W fast charge. In short, a very complete terminal that you can buy for just over 200 euros. If you do, you can protect it with some of the best covers for the POCO X3 NFC.

LITTLE M3

LITTLE BIT

POCO M3, one of the latest mobiles of the brand.

Own personality is what is left over LITTLE M3, launched by the company at the end of 2020. Its versions in yellow and electric blue and its price, 149 euros for the version with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage are especially striking.

In addition to the design, this POCO M3 also highlights the 6.53-inch IPS screen with Full HD + resolution, the processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 662, the triple camera led by a 48 MP main sensor and a incredible 6,000 mAh battery with 18W fast charge.

This terminal, whose design is completely new, offers users a value for money that is difficult to beat in the low range. We repeat, it is available for about 150 euros, a seemingly unbeatable price.

Which Pocophone is the best?

The three mobiles that make up POCO's current catalog cover the three ranges of the market: high-end, low-end and high-end. Depending on your needs and budget With which you face the purchase, you must choose between the POCO F2 Pro, the POCO X3 NFC and the POCO M3.

Regardless of the budget, the best Pocophone currently is the POCO F2 Pro, which we have already praised on several occasions. For a price of around 550 euros, you can enjoy a mobile with a Snapdragon 865 processor, AMOLED screen, four cameras on the back and a 4,700 mAh battery with 30 W fast charge.

To this must be added other details, such as NFC, 360º ambient light sensor, on-screen optical fingerprint reader, 3.5 mm headphone port and USB Type C. In short, a great terminal that will fulfill all your wishes and will show you 100% the POCO experience.
