Poco X5 and X5 Pro are two contenders for the best mid-range 2023

2023 does not seem to be the year in which Xiaomi slows down its launches, and Poco X5 and Poco X5 Pro are proof of this, two smartphones that have just hit the market in an attempt to continue dominating the mid-range segment. The new items offer a better camera, a more powerful processor, improved performance and a more modern design.

Before we dive into each area, we need to be clear about the similarities and differences between the two models and what features they have in common.

Let’s start with the general similarities: the Poco X5 and the Poco X5 Pro have the same screen, the same battery and the same two secondary cameras (i.e. the same ultra wide-angle sensor and the same macro sensor).

Well, now to the differences.

• Poco X5 is equipped with a Snapdragon 695 processor and Poco X5 Pro is equipped with a Snapdragon 778G processor.

• Same battery but no fast charge as the Pro model: 67W against 33W for the Poco X5.

• Does the main camera of the Poco X5 have a resolution of 48 megapixels? Poco X5 Pro has 108 megapixels. The front is also different, with 13 megapixels on the base model and 16 megapixels on the Pro version.

• The design of both models: the Poco X5 is more curved, while its big brother has a flatter and more rectangular body. The cheaper model is also heavier at 189 grams versus 181 grams for the Pro.

The Poco X5 and Poco X5 Pro share the same screen: a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel, both with Full HD+ resolution, 2400 x 1080 pixels, and a 120Hz refresh rate. This configuration does not disappoint and results in a display with excellent clarity and more than correct color interpretation; with those slightly saturated tones that many appreciate on this type of screen, but with very well calibrated whites.

Of course, there are small differences here, and they’re worth looking at, if only because they can affect both display quality and battery life. Specifically, the Poco X5 has a peak brightness of 1200 nits, while the Pro model’s panel hits a peak brightness of 900 nits. This more powerful version is also protected by Gorilla Glass 5, while the other model is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.

Good battery life and power

The 5,000mAh Poco X5 and Poco X5 Pro do pretty much the same job, allowing them to last all day even with heavy use. In addition, to this good autonomy, we must add the excellent charge that both models provide.

Again, while the Poco X5 Pro’s charge is noticeably more powerful, both phones do a good job. The base model can hit 100% in just over 60 minutes, which isn’t bad. Its big brother, according to Xiaomi, can fully charge 30% of its battery in around 7 minutes.


Both models have smooth navigation, open apps of any type without issue, and games can be played without excessive heat or jerking. It should be noted that the Snapdragon 778G X5 Pro runs games with more powerful graphics more smoothly.


The photographic section of Poco X5 and X5 Pro is very similar to their predecessors. In fact, the configuration and sensor models are almost the same.

The Poco X5 is equipped with a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro. The Pitco X5 Pro relies on a main sensor of 108 megapixels. It supports its smaller sibling’s 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera as well as a 2-megapixel macro sensor.

Both models’ ultra-wide and macro sensors do a pretty good job of capturing fairly sharp images with just the right amount of detail in good lighting conditions. There is a little more noise in the room, although this is not a concern given the price of the two models.

New smartphones are coming to the market at a very attractive price. The basic version of the Poco X5 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory is available for 299.99 euros. Its more powerful version with 8 GB and 256 GB of memory can be purchased for 349.99 euros instead. The Poco X5 Pro is also available for the same price in a 6GB RAM and 128GB storage version, while the 8GB and 256GB variant costs €399.99.

At this price, and given the features and performance of both terminals in each of their respective segments, there is no doubt that they are the ideal option if you are looking for a budget smartphone that stands out above all for its multimedia section . In fact, the large screen, the great battery life and the very good performance they offer are the three strong points of Xiaomi’s latest Poco X5 and X5 Pro.
