One could argue that the Poco F5 Pro is a successor to last year's Poco F4 GT. However, there are a couple of key differences that set those two apart, and pricing is one of them. The Poco F5 Pro launches at a lower price than its supposed predecessor and offers a slightly lower tier of features. However, the goal remains the same - to deliver a near-flagship experience on the cheap.
Even though it's rocking a chipset from last year, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, it's still perfectly capable of handling everything on Play Store, and it's an improved version of the standard SD8 Gen 1. This potentially puts the F5 Pro in the affordable flagship category with an early bird price of around €480 and a regular price of €580.
But it's not just the chipset. The F5 Pro has some premium-like features that make it a balanced upper-midranger. It has a solid 5,160 mAh battery, up from 4,700 mAh on the F4 GT, and offers 67W fast wired and 30W wireless charging and an optically-stabilized main camera. The device also sells with 256GB of internal storage as a standard, albeit with no microSD card slot. And last but not least, the F5 Pro offers an upgraded 1440p+ panel with 1,000 nits of peak brightness and HDR10+/Dolby Vision certifications for a modern multimedia viewing experience.
The Poco F5 Pro takes the "flagship for the masses" role in Poco's portfolio for 2023 after last year's Poco F4 GT didn't cater to most users since its main goal was to deliver niche gaming features at a lower price. The F5 Pro just wants to appeal to the majority of users. It's a fairly simple formula, so we are eager to see how that plays out, especially with the cheaper Poco F5 on the menu, which offers similar performance with its speedy Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC under the hood.
The handset comes in a standard retail box containing all the usual user manuals, the appropriate 67W fast charger and a USB-A to USB-C cable for data transfer and charging.
There's also a transparent silicone case as a bonus, so it doesn't conceal the neat paint job.
The color in the camera is different, red turns out to be orange and green becomes yellow. What could be the problem 🥲🥲🥲
