A Thorough Look at the Poco X4 Pro 5G

Let us look at the Poco X4 Pro 5G, owned by Xiaomi. A great way to describe this phone is to call it an industry standard for a midrange price. It boasts flagship features such as a 6.67in 129Hz AMOLED display and 67W fast charging, to name a few, all for a relatively budget-friendly price.

While the mid-range market is extensively growing, it not what it once was. It is far more competitive today. Can Poco cause unrest among its peers and dethrone other beloved mid-rangers?


One thing the Poco X4 Pro 5G has going is that it doesn’t look like a mid-range phone with its premium design and relatively thin bezels and trimmed edges. Such design choices won’t look alien on Samsung’s flagship range, don’t get carried away tho, it is still plastic. At just 8.1mm and 205g, it is an upgrade to its predecessor with such an elegant design scheme. It is a complete overhaul on the Poco X3 Pro, which was bulky and had a weird color palette and a daring Poco branding on the back, which made the phone design very subjective. You will either love it or hate it.

The camera bump on the back is another apparent change, with a reflective pattern to grab the light and give it a unique glow reflected from the sizeable 108Mp sensor frame. It does look very classy but a bit undercrowded with all the camera tech absent and not filling it up. The Mi 11 Pro had extra camera tech with many names on the camera space; Poco chose to stick with just AI for aesthetic reasons.

It is plastic, as said before, but sometimes cheaper materials can be advantageous. They won’t break into pieces like glass and are lighter. It all translates to decent durability, and Poco ensured that the cheaper choice didn’t look as bad as everyone might think. And in all honesty, it looks pretty stylish.

The Poco X4 Pro 5G also has an IP53 rating, making it relatively water and dust resistant, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a type C port. Available in three colors, from muted laser black to laser blue, and finally, the hard-hitting Poco Yellow.


The Poco X4 Pro 5G comes in two configurations, 6GB 128GB which will cost around 300 (299 euros), and 8GB 256 which will have you pay up to 355 (349 euros), and both options are available on Poco’s official website.

Such pricing means that Poco is selling cheaper than its primal rivals, Nord CE 2 5G and other great mid-range phones. Yet, it goes without saying that the lack of promised software commitment may be a deal breaker to some.

Specs and Performance

The Poco X4 Pro 5G brands itself as a gaming phone; although its performance is admirable for a mid-range phone, calling it a gaming phone is a stretch.

Powering the Poco X4 5G Pro is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 695g processor with either 6GB or 8GB of ram, 128GB, or 256GB of storage to choose from, depending on your needs. Such numbers are beating the benchmark but still are impressive for a phone that will only set you back 304 (299 euros).

Performance aside, the Poco X4 5G Pro offers Wi-Fi 5 alongside Bluetooth 5.1 and, as the name suggests, 5G connectivity. It also supports NFC for payment apps like google pay, and the fingerprint sensor is built into the power button for a smoother unlocking experience. Lastly, if the 128/256GB storage proves to be insufficient, there is a MicroSD slot that can ramp up your storage to 1TB.

The Poco X4 Pro 5G has Xiaomi’s Dynamic Ram Expansion technology which uses storage as extra RAM boosting it to up to 8GB and 11GB, respectively, when the need arises. But does this tech make any difference to the general performance of the X4?

It does boost the scrolling experience and fast-paced app switching and image processing capabilities. Still, the fact that it is a midrange phone becomes clearer when using intense apps like and WhatsApp, which freeze several times.

The Poco X4 5G Pro does run AAA mobile games such as Apex Legends with decent graphic settings. It does push the Snapdragon 695 to its limit, though. Hitting the smooth 60fps frame rate is not always achievable, and the 120fps that the screen can offer will never be obtainable.

So fair to say, if you want the optimal gaming experience, there are better options dedicated to gaming with extra hardware features such as grips and triggers.

The Poco X45G Pro can be more than enough for tech fans, but it does shape up to look like a decent option for average users, especially with a competitive price like this.

thorough, look, poco, xiaomi

The battery is a selling point. Even with intensive use and a 120hz refresh rate, it holds its own well. The 67W charger is a premium feature that comes in handy more often than you think.


The Poco X4 5G Pro has an impressive 108Mp rear camera coupled with an 8Mp 118-degree ultrawide lens and a 2Mp macro lens that is a humble addition, but they do get the job done.

The 108Mp uses a sensor that is one of the biggest around, measuring at 1/1.52in and an aperture of f/1.9. These numbers offer viable performance but are underwhelming in low light and night performance.

This camera combination can allow exceptionally detailed images at full 108Mp resolution with Xiaomi’s 9-in-1 pixel binning technology. When taking photos in a well-lit environment, the pictures turn out great. Sharp FOCUS and balanced exposure, and color accuracy are commendable.

Such a level of detail is only achievable when you shoot in its full 108Mp resolution, but the downside is the files tend to get 4x larger than the pixel-binned counterparts. The full-resolution images are great if you feel like cropping pictures, but almost all users won’t notice a difference using the standard 12Mp pixel-binned output.

The Poco X4 5G Pro has no telephoto lens, but the on-screen 2x zoom prompt makes this fact easy to forget. But realistically, cropping the main image by pressing this option won’t compete with a dedicated telephoto lens if you’re an avid user of it.

Even though the sensor is sizeable, the biggest downside is low light photography. The Poco X4 5G Pro struggles with artificial light and outdoors at night, especially with a lackluster FOCUS that can’t offer what premium laser-FOCUS night mode does. The potential is there, but without active stabilizing, you’ll have to manually do the job with a tripod if you need to capture a stable subject. A moving subject is near-impossible.

The 8Mp 118-degree Ultrawide camera does not compare well to the primary lens with a softer look, and the f/2.2 aperture means it won’t perform well in low light either.

An impressive feature is the camera tuning. Despite the camera specs, there is little difference in the color temperature levels and the dynamic range between ultrawide and primary lenses. It makes switching lens midshot smooth, but ultrawide photography won’t work well at night.

There is a 2Mp macro sensor, but it’s almost hidden in the Poco Camera app, which makes it seem like the manufacturer is trying to hide it, which should give a hint about its performance. The pictures are unclear and disappointing, and after using it once or twice, you’ll probably forget it existed.

The 16 MP selfie camera fairs relatively well overall, a good option for selfies and video calls. A portrait photography mode blurs the background, but with hit-and-miss edge tracking, it can sometimes be frustrating.


The Poco X4 5G Pro runs Android 11 and a very intensive MUI 13, which contains bloatware and heavily skins the stock Android. The camera UI is hard to work with sometimes, and the usual Xiaomi quirks can put users off, especially with a lack of Operating System (OS) commitment.


Many premium features on a budget phone can often be a significant selling point. The phone doesn’t look far off from some flagship devices. A 108Mp camera and 120Hz refresh rate are things you’d love on your smartphone, even if they don’t operate as their premium counterparts. The 5G connectivity is also a huge selling point at that price range.

The lack of updates commitment can be a severe downside. Though most mid-range users would like to feel safe knowing that their phone won’t set them back again sooner than they’d hoped for, the Poco X4 5G Pro remains a decent option if you’re looking for a mid-ranger.

Poco X4 Pro 5G Review

The Poco X4 Pro is a great value handset that offers a wonderful screen, a very capable camera, and 5G connectivity. The design may not be to everyone’s tastes, but this device is well worth your consideration if you’re on a £260 budget.


Key Features


Poco is a sub-brand of Xiaomi that specialises in budget phones. In previous years we’ve been particularly impressed by the likes of the Poco F3, but can the Poco X4 Pro improve upon that high standard?

With stand-out specs such as a 108-megapixel main camera, 67W fast-charging, a 5000mAh battery and a 120Hz display refresh rate, things certainly look promising for this well-priced phone.

Design and Screen

While the Poco X4 Pro 5G punches above its weight in many respects, the design is one element where it lets itself down quite a bit. The camera module spans most of the device’s rear and is downright ugly, with a huge brand name plastered over it for good measure.

The back panel itself is quite eye-catching, especially when the sun’s out, as then it catches the light with glistening criss-crossing streaks from top to bottom. However, this added gloss actually makes it quite slippery to the touch, and given the large and protruding camera module as well, I unfortunately discovered on a couple of occasions that this does make it a little prone to falling off slightly inclined surfaces if you haven’t set it down carefully.

When you want to unlock the device, you’ve got the choice of using Face Unlock on Fingerprint Unlock (via the scanner that’s embedded in the power switch); in my experience, both of these methods worked reliably and efficiently.

Fortunately, there are some practical touches at play with the design, despite its undoubtedly divisive appearance. The screen is cast in Gorilla Glass 5, meaning that it should be quite resistant to bumps and scratches. It also has an IP53 certification, which means it’s protected from some water spray and from limited dust ingress. The Poco X4 Pro has also got a MicroSD slot for expandable storage in addition to the maximum of 256GB that’s onboard – you won’t find that on a many of the best phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack too, another feature usually lost on high-end phones now.

The screen will not have nearly as many detractors as the design, since it’s frankly flat-out excellent for the price.

Measuring a generous 6.67-inches diagonally across, this AMOLED panel boasts excellent contrast compared to LCD counterparts, while at 1080p the resolution is plenty sharp enough for watching videos or playing games.

The 120Hz refresh rate is a killer feature for this price, making content such as social media feeds nice and smooth to scroll down due to the screen being constantly updated. It’s worth noting though that unlike premium devices like the OnePlus 10 Pro which can offer adaptive refresh rates, this one can only be set at 120Hz or the standard 60Hz manually, without any ability of automatic adjustment for battery conservation.

I also found the adjective brightness to be responsive and effective, with the panel lighting up quickly enough to ensure that I never had to scrunch my face up to make out what was on my screen, even when under direct sunlight.


One of the headline specs of this device is, without doubt, its 108-megapixel main camera. If the screen specs weren’t enough to get you rubbing your eyes and double-taking the price-tag, then this one will, as habitually I would expect this sensor to be found in much more expensive devices.

Night Mode clears up some of the noise and restores natural colours, as you can see from the picture below. However, clearly this mode is not as impressive as slightly pricier mid-range phones like the Pixel 4a.

You can choose to employ Artificial Intelligence to the photos via the phone’s AI mode, which recognises different scenes and adjusts them accordingly – so for instance it might add colour to a plate of food to make it look more appetising. Generally speaking though, I found that it just added lurid levels of colour to the image without really improving it. If you’ve a fan of the super-saturated look then you might want to use this option, but I preferred the results when it was switched off.

The impressive main camera is accompanied by a 2-megapixel macro sensor, and an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens. The ultrawide lens isn’t particularly impressive, as you can see from the snap above, and the jump down in quality is glaringly noticeable when you switch to it from the main. The loss of detail means that you’ll be best advised to stick to the main camera as much as possible when you’re shooting.

The macro camera is, as per usual on phones of this type, unnecessary and not particularly good quality; I doubt you’d use this very much as it rarely comes in handy.

You’ve not got a dedicated telephoto sensor here, so if you want to get closer to your subject then the best you can do is make use of the digital zoom on the main sensor. Above is an image taken at 2x digital zoom, and as you can see there is an obvious loss of detail even at this extent, but it does still produce usable pictures.

The selfie camera is adequate but not particularly good, with photos generally having a washed-out look that does not deliver much detail.

When it comes to video recording, you can take 1080p footage at 30fps. You can’t record at 60fps, so the video results aren’t all that smooth, and despite the sensor’s high resolution you can’t record in 4K quality either, which is probably down to the limitations of the processor.


The Poco X4 Pro runs on a mid-range Snapdragon 695 processor, which isn’t the fastest around but fortunately does pack in a 5G modem so that you can have access to the very latest in mobile data speeds.

It’s far from a given for a phone at this price point to have 5G connectivity, so that’s a major selling point in its favour, particularly if you’d like it to be somewhat future-proof. In addition to 5G, the handset also has dual-Band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity.

In the table below, you can see how the Poco X4 Pro stacks up when compared to its peers – and while it’s not the best in class, it’s certainly no slouch either. The Geekbench scores refer to the CPU ability, which is the part of the processor that manages most tasks that you undertake, while the 3DMark scores judge its GPU performance, which is a particularly good indicator for its gaming ability.

Xiaomi POCO X4 Pro 5G, análisis: un claro aspirante a superventas con una batería de infarto

No sé cuántas veces he recomendado el POCO X3 Pro en 2021, pero no han sido pocas. “Oye Jose, tengo que cambiar de móvil y no me quiero gastar más de 300 euros, ¿cuál me compro?”. La respuesta era evidente. El POCO X3 Pro funcionó muy bien gracias, en parte, a esa ficha técnica tan jugosa. Pues hoy tenemos entre mano a su sucesor, el POCO X4 Pro 5G.

Está recién salido del horno y nosotros llevamos ya unos cuantos días probándolo a fondo para traeros este, su análisis. Es un teléfono que, desde Mi punto de vista, va directo a convertirse en uno de esos mejores móviles recomendables cuando el presupuesto es bajo, aunque dista mucho de ser perfecto. Sin más dilación, vamos con ello.

Diseño: todo un cambio

¿Recordáis el POCO X3 Pro? Pues el POCO X4 Pro 5G no tiene nada que ver con él. Donde antes teníamos bordes redondeados y una trasera de plástico, ahora tenemos bordes planos y cristal. Es un salto en calidad de materiales notable que se agradece en mano. Y no, calma, no hemos detectado que sujetar el móvil sea menos cómodo ahora que los bordes son más “afilados”, en absoluto.

La trasera de cristal juega con la luz para ofrecer una serie de destellos que cambian según el ángulo de la luz. Para gustos, colores. Es un acabado bastante más sobrio que el del modelo anterior, más elegante si cabe. Se ha eliminado el nombre de la marca y el módulo circular para, en su lugar, dejar la trasera limpia y apostar por un enormísimo módulo, similar al del POCO M4 Pro 5G, que seguramente sea objeto de polémica entre los usuarios.

Este módulo, que ocupa toda la parte superior, tiene dos relieves: el del módulo en sí y el del módulo con el sensor principal. Vamos, que sobresale dos veces del chasis. Esto provoca que el terminal baile un poco cuando lo dejamos sobre la mesa, sobre todo si presionamos en la esquina superior izquierda. Además, me preocupa que el principal foco de impacto sea la cámara principal. Veremos cómo afecta esto a largo plazo.

En cuanto a sensaciones en mano, es un teléfono cómodo, más bien grande y algo pesado. Más o menos, es tan alto y ancho como el POCO X3 Pro, pero diez gramos más ligero y bastante más delgado, pasando de los 9,4 mm de grosor del POCO X3 Pro a solo 8,1 mm. En la tabla inferior tenéis una foto más global:

163,2 73,6 8,7 197 6,7 4.500 120,12 104,5

Lo que sí es importante destacar es que la trasera de cristal se ensucia con solo mirarla. Si sois un poquito maniáticos, OS advierto que vais a pasar bastante tiempo limpiando las huellas de la trasera. No obstante, si vais a ponerle una funda (como la que viene incluida en la caja del móvil) mataréis dos pájaros de un tiro: la suciedad de la trasera y el meneo al dejarlo sobre la mesa. A gusto del consumidor.

En el canto derecho tenemos el botón de inicio, que hace a la vez de lector de huellas, y los botones de volumen. Todo se encuentra en una posición cómoda y accesible. En el canto inferior tenemos el puerto USB tipo C, un altavoz, un micrófono y la bandeja para la SIM.

En el canto izquierdo no tenemos absolutamente nada y en el canto superior, finalmente, encontramos un segundo altavoz, otro micrófono, el jack de auriculares (una especie en peligro de extinción) y el sensor infrarrojo (que es un rara avis).

Finalmente, cabe destacar que la cámara interna se ha alojado en una pequeña perforación en la pantalla. El agujero es bastante pequeño y llegas a olvidarte de que está ahí, aunque hay una especie de anillo brillante rodeando la lente que brilla cuando la luz le da desde cierta posición. No es nada preocupante y, en la práctica, cuando estemos usando el móvil lo acabaremos ignorando.

Pantalla: AMOLED a 120 Hz

Si en el diseño hemos visto un salto importante en calidad, de la pantalla podemos decir exactamente lo mismo. Una de las cosas que podemos esperar de los móviles de 2022 es que los paneles OLED sigan llegando a cada vez más smartphones y Xiaomi / POCO, en ese aspecto, han tomado buena nota.

El POCO X4 Pro 5G incorpora un panel AMOLED de 6,67 pulgadas en formato 20:9, con resolución FullHD (2.400 x 1.080 píxeles), 120 Hz de tasa de refresco y 360 Hz de muestreo táctil, todo ello acompañado de un brillo máximo de 1.200 nits y protegido por Gorilla Glass 5. Un pantallote, vaya, sobre todo para un smartphone que cuesta alrededor de 300 euros. Y plano, nada de curvaturas ni cosas extrañas.

La pantalla se ve de escándalo, en pocas palabras. Es ideal tanto para reproducir contenido multimedia como para jugar. La tecnología AMOLED permite que los colores sean algo más vívidos y los negros completamente puros, lo que aumenta el contraste. Es una pantalla que, sin llegar a la calidad que ofrece la gama más alta, se comporta perfectamente y no dejará indiferente a ningún usuario.

El panel viene bien calibrado de fábrica, pero desde los ajustes podemos ajustar la representación de color para dejarlo más a nuestro gusto. También podemos activar los 120 Hz, que por algún motivo no vienen activados por defecto. Es absurdo, desde luego, puesto que es uno de los grandes argumentos de este smartphone. En cualquier caso, ya sabéis. Primera parada: ajustes pantalla 120 Hz.

El brillo máximo es más que suficiente para no tener ningún tipo de problema a la hora de usar el móvil en el exterior. El brillo automático, por su parte, también funciona como era de esperar. Lo que tenemos es compatibilidad con contenido HDR, algo que es normal en esta gama y rango de precios.

En cuanto al aprovechamiento del frontal, los marcos laterales y superior están muy bien aprovechados, pero la realidad es que tenemos una generosa barbilla inferior que, para colmo, no es del mismo grosor que el borde inferior. Amantes de la simetría y del orden en el universo, advertidos quedáis.

Rendimiento: del 8 al 6 y tiro porque me toca

Pasamos así a hablar del rendimiento y, antes de nada, vamos a dar algo de contexto. Cuando POCO lanzó el POCO X3 NFC lo hizo con un Snapdragon de la serie 700 (gama media premium). Luego, cuando lanzó el POCO X3 Pro, montó directamente un SoC de la serie 800 (gama alta). Tiene sentido, ¿no? Si es un modelo Pro, qué menos que montar un procesador a la altura. Este SoC es, en parte, el culpable de que el POCO X3 Pro fuese como un tiro y que no tuviera 5G.

¿Qué tenemos en el POCO X4 Pro? Un Snapdragon 695 5G, es decir, un procesador de gama media. Hemos pasado de un Snapdragon 860 (siete nanómetros y ocho núcleos a una velocidad máxima de 2,96 GHz) a un Snapdragon 695 5G (seis nanómetros y ocho núcleos a 2,2 GHz). Hemos perdido bastante potencia y hemos ganado conectividad 5G. Los benchmarks hablan por sí solos.
