With the new POCO X5 Pro, Xiaomi is giving its POCO series of smartphones a boost. Touted as the ideal smartphone for gamers and photo enthusiasts, the POCO X5 Pro comes with impressive specs and an attractive design.
Design and handling
The POCO X5 Pro has a glossy plastic chassis with a glitter coating in black, blue or yellow. With its 162.1×76 mm and 7.9 mm thickness, the phone is relatively light (181 grams) and offers a pleasant grip. The Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection reinforces the resistance of the device.
6.67 inch OLED display
The POCO X5 Pro is equipped with a 6.67-inch OLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a definition of 1080×2400 pixels. The colorimetry of the screen is not very natural, but not unpleasant either.
The X5 Pro features a Snapdragon 778G chip with 6 or 8 GB of RAM, as well as 128 or 256 GB of storage. The performance is stable and the phone rarely heats up. The MIUI 12 software update is available and offers many useful features. The phone is compatible with Wi-Fi 5 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC and 5G which allows for fast internet connection. Fast charging at 67W offers a very short charging time.
camera and camera
This smartphone is equipped with a main 108 megapixel photo sensor and a 16 megapixel front sensor. The quality of the images is impressive and the device is capable of producing very high quality photos. The phone also takes 4K video. However, night photography is less successful. In-game stability is also worse than other smartphones.

This little gem is available in 6+128 GB at €349 and 8+256 GB at €399. The POCO X5 is available in 6+128 GB at €269. The phones are available on the official Xiaomi website.
