Technical sheet of POCO M5
The Poco M5 is a mid-range smartphone released by POCO in September 2022. It features a 6.58 inch LCD IPS display with 1080x2408 resolution (FHD+), 500 cd/m² brightness, and 1500:1 contrast ratio, offering users an excellent viewing experience. The phone also has a metal body and 83.2% usable surface.
Under the hood, the Poco M5 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G99 (MT6789) (6nm) processor and has options for 4GB or 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB or 128GB of UFS Storage 2.2. It has an AnTuTu (v9) score of 355000 and is equipped with a side fingerprint sensor for added security.
Camera wise, the Poco M5 features a triple camera setup with a main Samsung S5KJN1 sensor of 50.0Mpx with f/1.8 aperture and ISOCELL technology, a depth portrait mode lens of 2.0Mpx with f/2.4 aperture, and a macro lens of 2.0Mpx with f/2.4 aperture. It also has a front-facing 5.0Mpx selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture and CMOS technology. The Poco M5 is capable of shooting 4K videos as well.
For connectivity, the Poco M5 supports Bluetooth 5.3, dual SIM, NFC, audio jack, and infrared. It also has a 5000mAh battery with 18.0W fast charging support, but it lacks wireless charging capabilities.
The Poco M5 is one of the most affordable mid-range smartphones in the market. It offers good battery life and the triple camera setup is solid for its price point. However, it is not suitable for gaming and it doesn't have 5G support. The camera quality could also be better and some may find that the lack of wireless charging is a downside. If you're looking for a budget-friendly mid-range device, the Poco M5 is a great option. The Poco M5S is another device in the same series which many consider to be an improvement over the Poco M5.

Just this version of all Poco devices that I can buy for this time, it's not bad at all. Camera is decent, performance are great for online multiplayer, like Moba or battle Royale. Everything is perfect, thanks Poco.Pros
- Colour Variant
- Build material
- Selfie camera
- AutoVery good cell phone, beautiful and with good performance
The back has a leather texture and has a thick piano black stripe on top. The screen is LCD but it's not bad, on the contrary it's very good. The screen brightness isn't bad either. The processor is good, it's a Helium G99, the only problem is that most things are not optimized for the processor because it's a MediaTek.Pros
