Considering the specifications of Xiaomi Poco F1 it seems like the best smartphone under Rs 20,000 to play PUBG Mobile on, but is that really the case? The answer is yes, playing PUBG Mobile on the Poco F1 is one of the best experience a consumer can get.
The Snapdragon 845 paired with Adreno 630 and 6GB of RAM delivers power that is more than enough to keep the game running to the player’s heart’s content.
