Xiaomi Poco M5 review


The Poco M5, just like the Poco M4 5G announced in August, is one of Xiaomi's most affordable handsets in the portfolio. Both handsets are quite similar,...

Attractive splash-resistant design, cool color options.

The max screen brightness is inadequate for outdoor use.

At the end of the day, the Poco M5 is a low-end device with a pretty basic feature set and hardware. The latter seems adequate for the asking price, but we can't help thinking of the other Xioami-branded alternatives. We strongly recommend taking a...

POCO M5 review: A well-rounded budget phone if you don’t need 5G


The POCO M5 combines nearly two days of battery life with impressive hardware and a distinct design; if you don't mind the lack of 5G support, this is an entry-level champion. The POCO M5 offers good value for money and a gorgeous design, but it does...

Excellent battery life ; Slick design ; Reliable hardware ; 90Hz display ; Affordable

No wide-angle shooter ; Average rear cameras ; No 5G support ; Long charging time

The POCO M5 gives you great value for money in the budget segment, bringing a strong design aesthetic, long-lasting battery life, and reliable performance in day-to-day use. However, these perks come at the expense of 5G connectivity and unimpressive...

Poco M5


The Poco M5 is an affordable device that is perfect for streaming and browsing, though we wouldn't recommend it for gaming.

Great battery ; Speedy charging ; Large display ; Mature design

Front camera isn’t the best ; UI feels very bloated

The Poco M5 is an affordable phone that comes with more than enough power for browsing and streaming. The low price point does mean that it’s limited in terms of gaming, and it doesn’t have the best camera on the market, but it’s more than serviceable...

Xiaomi Poco M5 review


The Poco M5 is a competent budget smartphone, but it lacks the wow factor of previous phones from Xiaomi's affordable brand

Strong two-day battery life ; Fresh design ; Decent performance for the money

No ultra-wide camera ; LCD display a step back ; No stereo speakers ; Slow charging

The Poco M5 is a decent phone available for a low price, but it simply lacks the sense of sheer punching-above-its-weight good value that defined many previous Poco handsets. You seem to be getting a little less for your money overall compared to other...
