Xiaomi's Pocophone F1 benchmarked: as fast as any flagship

14 August 2018

Xiaomi’s Pocophone F1 is the self-titled “master of speed” - thanks to the Snapdragon 845 chipset, it should be the fastest phone in its price class. How fast? Well, let’s turn to Geekbench for an early peak.

GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core)

Higher is better

  • Xiaomi Pocophone F1
    9081
  • OnePlus 6
    9042
  • Xiaomi Mi 8
    9028
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+
    9010
  • HTC U12+
    8964
  • LG G7 ThinQ
    8865
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Snapdragon)
    8161
  • Huawei P20 Pro
    6754

GeekBench 4.1 (single-core)

Higher is better

  • Samsung Galaxy S9+
    3748
  • Xiaomi Pocophone F1
    2467
  • Xiaomi Mi 8
    2427
  • HTC U12+
    2414
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Snapdragon)
    2402
  • OnePlus 6
    2401
  • LG G7 ThinQ
    2395
  • Huawei P20 Pro
    1908

So, it’s as fast as the other S845-powered phones. The cost of some of those are hair-raising, however, Pocophone’s competitive advantage stems from its price tag. The Xiaomi Mi 8 goes for around €500 in Europe, the Asus Zenfone 5z is €480. An early Poco unit was briefly available for sale at €430, but we shouldn’t read too much into that price.

That Zenfone currently carries the title “most affordable Snapdragon 845-powered phone”, but that will likely change on August 22 when Xiaomi unveils its first phone sub-brand.

PS. There have been plenty of leaks if you’re curious about the specs.
