Hemedans, 07 Sep 2022Thats still $23 difference, for low end its huge difference... moreFair point. Prospective buyers need to decide whether the Poco's extra 2GB RAM, 1080p display, faster UFS storage and starting with Android 12 are worth the extra cash. The Honor X7 counters with an ultrawide cam that the M5 is lacking and faster charging speed.

      For reference, the Poco M5 6/128 launch price is $178 in Malaysia.

It is an adequately powerful AND efficient SoC for the entry level/lower mid-range smartphones (price less than $200). Currently, this segment is dominated by SD 680 which is not ideal in my view. G99 is a much better and needed SoC to be used in phones in this segment.
