Editor Rating

The POCO sub-brand from Xiaomi is known for its value-for-money offerings that deliver good quality internals in a decently built body while still cutting some corners to save on the overall costs. Thankfully, they don’t skimp out on any of the vital parts, which is why the phones are considered such great options despite a relative lack of premium features. The M5s is one such offering, which packs in a good-enough processor in a nicely built body that is powered by a massive battery so that you can enjoy all your daily activities without worrying about charging or general wear and tear.


Bottom Line

Poco M5s is a decent entry-level offering from the popular Chinese sub-brand, which delivers good value for money in terms of the display and build quality, as well as the large battery and fast charging capabilities.
