Android version and market relevance

In September 2022 Xiaomi company introduced its new smartphone Xiaomi Poco M5s. 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If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 12 already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.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

6.43-inch AMOLED touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Xiaomi Poco M5s and has an original solution for placing a selfie camera in the form of a small round hole in the screen. 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 8.3 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 case of the smartphone is completely protected from water and dust. 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

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 13 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment good cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 64 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Xiaomi Poco M5s is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Helio G95 (12 nm). As for RAM, the memory module is used here 4 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 6 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 64/128 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Xiaomi Poco M5s: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then Xiaomi Poco M5s is just what you need. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is exactly what you were looking for. Do not pass by Xiaomi Poco M5s, you should like it.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Xiaomi Poco M5s will begin in September 2022 at a price of $190. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
