Poco M6 5G hands-on review

GSMArena Team, 01 March 2024.


The Poco M6 is an entry-level smartphone in the company's 2024 lineup. Slotting in just above the Poco C65, the Poco M6 is, for the most part, almost identical save for a more powerful chipset and minor camera differences.

The specs are more or less what you'd expect at this price range. You get a 720p LCD but with a claimed 90Hz refresh rate. There is a single usable 50MP camera on the back and a 5MP camera on the front. You do however get a large 5000mAh battery along with a headphone jack and microSD support. A fingerprint sensor has been cleverly placed inside the power button.

For a starting price of around $115, you can't ask a lot more than that. The important thing now is to see how well it all works.


The Poco M6 comes in fairly basic packaging that you'd expect from an entry-level smartphone. It has the same yellow color on the outside with the vertical branding that we see on other Poco packages.

Inside, you get the phone, a 10W charger, and a cable. There isn't any case or screen protector provided in the box.
