Editor Rating

Although it may not have set any new standards, the POCO X5 Pro is nonetheless a very capable smartphone. Despite having a slightly outdated chipset, the performance of the phone is excellent. With its vibrant AMOLED screen and dual speakers, it even provides a nice viewing experience, and the cameras are roughly on a level with those of its rivals. The battery life of the phone is a little disappointing for a 5G gadget, but the 67W fast charging option makes up for it. It is definitely a worthy pick for someone who is looking for a good display with top-quality cameras.


Bottom Line

The POCO X5 is an affordable and awesome mid-range smartphone with all the features any user requires.
