Redmi 9 Prime just launched in India, oh, sorry, POCO M2 just launched in India. I don’t need to tell you what’s inside this phone yet if don’t know then do check out my Redmi 9 Prime Review.
By the way, POCO M2 is powered by MediaTek Helio G80 processor, it also has 5,000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support and of course quad camera setup. So let’s see whether you should buy POCO M2 or not?
Is it Worth buying POCO M2?
Yes, POCO M2 is worth buying because it has 6GB of Ram which is not available in any budget centric smartphone, the phone also has MediaTek Helio G80 processor and 5000 mAh battery. Now, you can skip the Redmi 9 Prime and go with POCO M2 because it’s a better choice and worth the price tag.
If you haven’t seen the Redmi 9 Prime then don’t even try to search because POCO M2 is what you need to see. POCO M2 and Redmi 9 Prime, both are the same devices but under a different brand. Long story short, if you have already bought Redmi 9 Prime then there is nothing worry about but if you haven’t bought Redmi 9 Prime then POCO M2 is what need to buy.
I won’t say much here because I have already said everything in Redmi 9 Prime review, there is no need to repeat same things.
Overall, If your budget is Rs 10,000 then I would say just add thousand more and go with POCO M2 because this phone has 6GB of Ram and there won’t be any ads in the UI but if you buy Redmi 9 Prime the there will be ads all the phone, even if you pay 10k. So be smart and go with a better phone, rather than keeping thousand.
By the way, I have also added the Full Specifications of POCO M2. Fun fact, I just changed the launch date and price, everything else I copied from Redmi 9 Prime :)
