We’re not sure how they were able to do it, but Xiaomi has done something incredible again. If you have no idea what I meant by that, what we’re talking about here is the new Pocophone F1.

The Poco F1 is a huge shake-up for the entire smartphone industry as it blurs the line between midrange and high-end smartphones.

Technically, due to its affordable price tag, the Poco F1 belongs in the midrange category. But due to its flagship-like specs, there’s even no point in comparing it with the devices within its price category.

Just like Xiaomi, OnePlus is known for making flagship smartphones for the cheapest possible price.

In our Poco F1 versus OnePlus 6 specifications and features comparison, we’ll be stacking Xiaomi’s newest smartphone to one of the best bang-for-the-buck flagship smartphones in the industry today. Can the Pocophone F1 end OnePlus’ winning streak? Let’s all figure that out.

It’s easy to say that the Pocophone F1 wins this battle due to its powerful hardware and cheap price tag. But I think, the extra money that you’d be paying for the OnePlus 6 might still be worth it depending on your needs.

As stated earlier, the OnePlus 6 is a proper flagship smartphone. This means that, besides having a powerful processor, it also comes with other high-end components.

To name a few, there’s the dual-camera setup on the back, which is obviously more impressive than what the Poco F1 has. It comes with a 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel primary shooters, both equipped with Sony sensors, wide apertures, and even a 480fps slow-mo capture capability.

On the other hand, the Poco F1 settles for a 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel rear cameras. But to its credit, it does have a better 20-megapixel selfie camera than the 16-megapixel sensor found on the OnePlus 6.

Moving on, the OnePlus 6 uses an Optic AMOLED screen, which offers more vibrant colors and deeper contrast than the IPS screen found on the Poco F1. An icing on top is its sRGB and DCI-P3 coverage.

As extras, the OnePlus 6 also has a dedicated alert slider and is water resistant.

OnePlus 6 Specs

Without a doubt, the OnePlus 6 has a more premium design. It is sandwiched by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 in the front and back, with smooth curves and edges. The Poco F1’s polycarbonate body sure is nothing against that.

If you want a proper flagship device, with all the premium features that come with it, the OnePlus 6 is still one of the cheapest ones that you can get aside from the Xiaomi Mi 8.

But if you don’t care about those fancy things and all you want is a straightforward and really powerful smartphone, then the Poco F1 is surely hard to beat.

In fact, the Poco F1 has several better features over the OnePlus 6. For one, there’s the 4,000mAh battery, which is remarkably bigger than the 3,300mAh battery of the latter.

The F1 also has a stereo speaker setup, while the OnePlus 6 only has a single bottom-firing speaker. And despite using the same processors, we expect the Poco F1 to perform better thanks to its LiquidCool thermal system.

For its starting price of Php17,990, the Poco F1 is one of the best smartphones out there. But then again, if you want something more flashy, the Php30,990 OnePlus 6 is still among the top choices for a cheap flagship experience.

The Poco F1 is expected to arrive in the Philippines on September 6. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 6 has been around for a couple of months now.
