The POCO F5 Pro is the latest smartphone from the Xiaomi sub-brand, focused on offering the best specifications at the most affordable price. For this reason, and after passing the Early Bird phase, it is available on the European market for €579.
It is a considerable price if we consider that the original PocoPhone F1 was released for less than €300. The big question that arises, facing the competition, is whether it is worth buying the Xiaomi POCO F5 Pro. In this article we list 3 reasons that can justify your purchase.
1. Wireless charging
This is POCO’s first smartphone with wireless charging. And anyone who thinks that the brand cut the battery field, or put a slow wireless charge for ‘English ver’, is wrong.
In fact, we have a generous 5160 mAh battery, and wireless charging reaches a decent 30 W. According to the brand’s figures, it allows the terminal to be charged wirelessly to 50% in just 32 minutes. And if you want to charge it wired, you get even faster charging at 67W.
Another highlight of this POCO F5 Pro is its screen. We have a large 6.7-inch AMOLED panel, with a 2K resolution of 3200 by 1440 pixels. In addition, the refresh rate goes up to 120 Hz.
These are the ‘minimum amenities’ for a good quality display, covering the entire P3 color gamut. Therefore, we can expect very reliable colors and good performance in low-light scenarios.
The POCO F5 Pro may not even have the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 running on it. But it has the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which was the most powerful Android processor on the market until a few months ago.
This means that it will be a smartphone capable of performing any task without any difficulty. If you add to this 256 GB of internal storage and 8 GB of RAM in the base version, we have a performance wonder for the price range.
These are just 3 reasons to buy a well balanced smartphone within your price range. It also has a 64 MP main camera with optical image stabilization, stereo speakers, NFC, and an under-screen fingerprint sensor.
