This is a smartphone on Android 12 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 3 modules (50 MP Wide, 2 MP Macro, 2 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Xiaomi Poco M5 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

In September 2022 Xiaomi company introduced its new smartphone Xiaomi Poco M5. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards, which is running on 12.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 12 already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

6.58-inch IPS LCD touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Xiaomi Poco M5 and has an almost invisible drop-like notch at the top border to adjust a selfie camera. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 8.9 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 5 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thick case and very capacious battery.

The most interesting thing is that the screen in the Xiaomi Poco M5 has a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The higher the value, the better. And this is very important in mobile games, because the high refresh rate makes the graphics smoother in the game. All smartphones with a display refresh rate of 90 Hz are collected in our catalog.

This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The most important characteristics of Xiaomi Poco M5 cameras: main camera received 50 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor, front camera got 5 MP Wide. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality. And the most interesting thing is that the main camera on the back of the body has several lenses (triple camera smartphones). That can do 2x zoom without losing quality. And with the help of at least two lenses, you can shoot portraits with the bokeh effect, this is when the background is blurred and the photo appears like depth. In this model, the selfie camera is on the front and you can see it. In 2019, smartphones were announced with a front camera, which is located inside the body and is not visible. When you need to take a photo, the front camera slides up from the body. You take your selfie, the photo is saved and then the camera goes down into the body. All smartphones with pop-up front camera from different producers at different prices are collected in the catalog. If you are interested in such models, we advise you to first watch video reviews about them, and then make a choice and buy.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone Xiaomi Poco M5 received a 8-core processor Helio G99 (6nm), RAM 4 GB and built-in memory 64 GB. Also there is support for memory cards microSDXC.
