The POCO X5 Pro 5G has the unique design with a beautiful yellow back panel with stylish frosted glass finish that feels smooth to the touch and resists fingerprint marks. The yellow power button will acts as a extra touch of personality when the black frame contributes to the phone’s sleek appearance. The presence of a headphone jack makes me a pleasant surprise in the modern smartphone comparing to other phones released now a days.

Performance of POCO X5 Pro 5G

The Snapdragon 778G processor delivers a noticeable upgrade from its predecessor phone POCO X4 Pro. Mainly the responsive of this phone is quite awesome when it combined with 8GB of RAM and 256GB. Also it don not have expandable internal storage, but guarantee that this phone will work smooth at high end games.

Detailed Camera visuals.

The POCO X5 Pro 5G comes with a triple camera configuration consisting of a 108MP primary sensor with 8MP ultrawide lens and 2MP macro lens, while taking the photos it display like high saturation levels, for me its quite disturbing, but many of the user has share its is good for them. So, the photo quality of POCO X5 Pro 5G is purely depending on your preference.

  • The white balance is accurate
  • The 108MP sensor captures intricate details
  • Night shots are impressive.
  • Finally it producing high-quality images.

Fluid and Vibrant Display

A 6.67″ 1080P AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate adorns the POCO X5 Pro 5G. This budget device offers a high-quality visual experience. For me the side mounted fingerprint scanner can be unresponsive some time and also the pre-installed bloatware is a drawback.

Standard and Fast-Charging Battery Life

The POCO X5 Pro 5G is equipped with a 5000mAh battery, which is consistent with current smartphones. It also supports 67W Fast Charge, ensuring a quick and convenient charging process when necessary.

  • It has a top-notch camera and standout design
  • The price point positions it as a strong competitor to the NOTHING Phone 1
  • Occasionally unresponsive fingerprint scanner and pre-installed bloatware are notable drawbacks for me.
