Poco F6 Pro test: a lot of compromises in order to “fold the game”

For its photo component, Poco has opted for a triple module consisting of a 50-megapixel main sensor with wide-angle optics (f/1.6) and optical stabilization, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle (f/2.2) and a macro module (2-megapixel sensor) attached to the camera. Clear.

Main unit: 50 MP, f/1.6

Compared to the massive Pixel 8a, which is famous for its photo features, the daytime photos taken by the Poco F6 Pro lack contrast. By accentuating the lines, Google's smartphone is able to deliver sharper images, although the F6 Pro is able to deliver detailed images with slightly washed-out colours. If we notice some chromatic aberrations when faced with moiré effects, the Poco smartphone delivers successful images overall.

Also at night, the Poco F6 Pro does well with readable images, with fairly well-written colours. If we notice digital smoothing aimed at erasing image noise, this does not hamper the level of detail, greatly helped by sharper contrasts.

Ultra wide-angle module: 8 MP, f/2.2

Despite good lighting conditions, the ultra-wide angle is particularly disappointing. Daytime images are very smooth, lacking texture and resolution. At just 8MP, the sensor struggles to deliver satisfactory resolution, especially compared to its 13MP competitor, which is significantly more capable. The whole thing is a bit overexposed and very messy.

At night, the result is difficult to use with dull colorimetry and software processing making everything quite blurry. This is even more true when the eye moves away from the center of the image which, if its distortion is controlled, gradually becomes illegible.

Front unit and video

The Poco F6 Pro is equipped with a 16MP selfie camera that delivers high-quality and effective selfies during video calls, provided that it is not used in low light.

The device also allows recording in Full HD at 60fps on both the front and back, and up to 8K at 24fps only on the back. Thanks to the combination of optical stabilization (OIS) and electronic stabilization (EIS), shakes are reduced, providing fairly stable and satisfying videos.
