Weekly poll: the Poco M4 Pro 5G is more capable, but more expensive too - is it worth it?

12 November 2021
It comes six months after the M3 Pro 5G and it costs €30 more. It brings a number of hardware improvements, though.

After sale service is very bad, and most of the poco phones are getting hard brick and also motherboard problem ,display problem (like screen flickering at extreme low brightness) ....... it's my suggestion to all of you don't buy poco phones even it will gives you great specification at low price.

Try some research before writing about things you have no idea about.

Mtk is far cheaper to manufacture. The dimensity chips are ahead of the sd chips that have the same manfuctaring cost or are in the same price range. Only disadvantage is gcam and custom rom and isp. Isp also mtk is improving. While other too idk about those. Otherwise its ur opinion if u think its trash ro not. I didn't say anything about sd vs mtk anyway but alright I guess...

Those two extra rounds below the camera which are fake, yuck! Software is rubbish as usual and the video footage is garbo.

By no mean am I saying that the f3 is taking better photos, but compared to the sensor it got that phone takes some of the best shots you can get from that 48mp sensor. Still nobody answered my question, how is the JN1 an "upgrade" from the the old gm1 ?

Meaning each phone will have different processing even when they are from the company. Because if this wasn't the case all the photos from all the cameras would be flagship performance.

Poco phones are very ugly and strange compared by regular Xiaomi phones. Poco UI is worse too.

MilesPrower1, 14 Nov 2021dimensity 810 isnt bad its just the camera and pricingCompare photo processing in two smartphones from the same company using the same sensor and one with a Mediatek while the other with Sd equivalent and you'll see the difference yourself.

I think Xiaomi outdid themselves with the Redmi Note 10 Pro, Poco X3 Pro, and Poco F3. Like, their new phones have all flopped against them (An example being this Poco M4 Pro 5G)

Maybe they should focus on their 12-series flagships until they can get another killer that can either match the price of the aforementioned trio of flagship killers or undercut with similar performance.

Alex 94, 14 Nov 2021Price of 180€ for 4/64 and 200€ for 6/128gb are perfect. I bought mine at $187.77 on Aliexpress 11/11 sales with 6/128 + glass film + xiaomi earbud basic 2s. That's cool deal

Overpriced for what it offers. If you go for 6/128 250 is too much, overpriced. For 280 you get a Poco F3 that totally destroys the M4 in every aspect lol
And for 200 you can get a X3 Pro which is superior in some aspects.

You hate 2mp depth camera ? This have a face camera cutout, what about now ? When you Imagine it can't be worse than that
