This is the POCO M5

LITTLE M5

The POCO M5, although it is the most traditional in terms of the panel, is the one with the most advanced processor. Its SoC is a MediaTek Helio G95 which, despite its nomenclature, is considerably more efficient than the Helio G99 that mounts the POCO M5S. In this case we are dealing with a chip manufactured in a 6 nanometer process, compared to the (worryingly high) 12 nanometers of the G99.

The internal memory is 64 or 128 GB, type UFS 2.2. It can be accompanied by 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and the battery that powers the whole is 5,000mAh. Fast charging is 18W, quite humble.

The panel has 6.53 inches, with IPS technology, adaptive refresh rate between 30 and 90 Hz. If we talk about the camera, the main one is 50 megapixels, while the two secondary ones are of two: macro and depth. In short, an entry range with the battery as its main ally.

The POCO M5S is slightly less advanced in terms of processor compared to the M5. The decision is to cut back on the processor to be able to bet on better technologies in the rest of the set. The main advantage of this terminal is its AMOLED screen with a maximum peak of up to 1,100 nits. There is no adaptive refresh rate, but it is considerably more ambitious than the IPS of its “little brother”.

We also found better fast charging technology, inheriting the 33W from various high-end Xiaomi models. The 5,000mAh is maintainedand we do not have wireless charging technology.

Also improve the camerawith 64 megapixel main sensor and an ultra wide angle. The rest of the sensors are the secondary ones of two megapixels. Although it is not a small mobile, it is more compact and lighter than the POCO M5with about 20 grams less weight compared to the M5.
