Will there be a video review for poco m5? I'm satisfied with written review but still it would be nice of you to make a video of this phone. It is a very interesting device for it's price.

    Looks impressive, was always a Samsung or Huawei man myself but recently bought my first Xiaomi and I'm quite impressed with their phones.
    This looks like another good option.

        Seems like an OK phone but that POCO logo at the back is really ugly

          tiny lens huge camera mount. Brands other than apple and samsung can't handle the back cover design.

              Samath N8 808 owner, 21 Nov 2022I think you mean the opposite. G95 instead of G99.M5s hardware with G95 would be called M5s still, lol

                  how long until they put out Poco M5 variant with M5s hardware but G99 instead of G95 lul. maybe they can call it Poco M5 Pro?

SAR value is very outdated i believe most of today phone have lower sar value

                      How quickly they copy! In the instance google pixel!

Even Xiaomi themselve have Redmi note 12.

                          A13 cost over €200 in your region?

                            Still wonder why Xiaomi flood the market with a lot of the same phone with different name?🙄

                              if you want a gaming machine for cheap , you're more than welcome to buy xiaomi phone. it's great for gaming . but not very transparent after sale service. sometime they do not even give you bill for servicing.

                                Hemedans, 19 Nov 2022No Mediatek has no competitive soc at low end, G99 is weak ... morenothing weak for €180 device.. A13 was about €190 which are still eMMC and exynos 850.

                                Exynos 1330 better means it's not sub €200.

                                  This phone wont compete with A04s it will compete with A13 and other sd 4 gen 1 devices which are much better. Just pray Xiaomi anounce something like redmi 11/11C with sd 4 gen 1

If you want value it's nearly always better to get a better higher specced older model which you can often pick up on sale at a similar price to these poor new budget phones

                                      Much better than budget Oppo or Samsung. A04s are the same price but AnTuTu is still 140K, no charger and case.
