Antutu 9 Benchmarks
Xiaomi Tensor shows one of the slowest AnTuTu 9 scores. Total scores are 133606. These scores are so slow. I mean the POCO should’ve gone with the MediaTek helio G70, or with the Qualcomm snapdragon 662 or less. the CPU scores are so slow alongside the GPU, well it’s clearly not a gaming phone. But these scores are so much slower for a 2022 budget smartphone. Such a shame to see these kinds of slow performances of the latest smartphone from the POCO.

Xiaomi Poco C40 has 2 cameras at the back and the main camera is 13MP F/2.2. this is one of the worst camera sensor we have ever seen. It’s 13 MP that’s good but the aperture is so slow, I mean it’s only F/2.2 which will make the camera experience worse than ever. There is also another camera with a 2MP depth lens. There is no 4K recording support. Also, there is no 1080P 60FPS support. Also, there is no ultrawide camera. There is just a 13 MP main camera with a 2MP useless depth lens.

When it comes to selfie cameras the Xiaomi Poco C40 has a single punch whole camera of 5MP. Well, its lower in resolution. It can record 1080P at 30FPS, but it’s only 5MP so, the video is not going to be that crisp. This tiny little camera sensor is F/2.2, which is not the worse but it’s not good either.

The Xiaomi Poco C40 is going to launch in three different colors. White, Black, and Green. Xiaomi is known for its premium colors with good context. I like the Black color because it looks better than these two colors.
This smartphone is costing around $200, I will neither do, nor recommend this smartphone because of the lack of high refresh rate, premium quality, slow chipset, and old design. Of course, there are more amazing smartphones than this one. So if you are considering buying a smartphone then you can check out my other articles on budget smartphones.
This Xiaomi Poco C40 is not a bad phone, it has everything that a normal user needs. The camera is updated alongside the new software. The design is changed with new textures and with new colors.
