GSMArena, please update the picture of the device because we now know what device looks like.
not that much great compare to other devices
Leanzazzy, 30 Jan 2023Exactly. Any X series phone after the Poco X3 Pro is a joke.What!! It's not joke good looking phone with better spect but slightly disappointed in processor
why is the back design like that, so bad
Not a xiaomi fanboy, 30 Jan 2023If they include dimensity 8200 , sure its gonna be a killer , but the crucial stuff we like (c... moreYou are vastly overestimating how many people use custom roms. The vast majority of people dont even know Custom Roms exists lmao. To the majority of users, choosing between Dimensity and Snapdragon is not a major talking point. Mediatek has the largest marketshare of any SoC producers and that proves my point. (Q3 2022, Mediatek at 35%, SD is at 31% lol). Also I dont get the idea of how the SD870 is "too old" Lmao. As long as it delivers good performance then its not a bad idea to put it in a phone, thats why the POCO F4 exists with an SD870 at 325 dollars
BTW, you can get a Dimensity 8100 in a 310 dollar phones with the X4 GT here in my country, or a Onepluse Ace with an 8100 and OIS Camera for 350 dollars. Thats why this phone is poop. Remember, the X4 Pro launched at 300-350 dollars with even worse hardware. The fact that you can get flagship level processor and good camera at 350 compared to this is criminal
Not a xiaomi fanboy, 30 Jan 2023Bruh bruh stop, I assume you are not familiar with the on going economy and phone market. How ... moreDid you even read the lower half of my statement??? Lmao.
Yes the Economy is going poop, but that means they should put even more value to actually incentivize smartphone users to buy phones. No one is buying this poop phone if you can literally get the better hardware and software with something like an A52s or just get a Redmi Note 12 Pro+ for pretty much the same price or a little bit extra. This thing almost has the same specs apart from the processor and charging as the 2 year old Redmi Note 10 Pro which is 220-240 dollars, thats how bad it is lol.
Thats my point, this thing doesnt make sense, its not the best value if you want a true all rounder, its not the best value if you want a budget gaming phone, its not the best value if you want a camera phone. The POCO X3 Pro even in today's bad economy still makes sense since its actually a very capable budget gaming phone.
Assuming this thing launches at the same price as the X4 Pro (300-350) then its poop. For reference, you can buy a Onepluse Ace for 350 dollars or a Pixel 6A for that price, both of which are infinitely better phones save for some small problems
When you have a bad economy, you FOCUS on VALUE. And this thing has bad value for the price.
This thing has NO IDENTITY, hence why its bad, POCO X4 Pro tries hard to be a Redmi phone while failing at it by essentially having worst overall specs for the same price lmao

Like +100$ to 150$, and ofcourse gonna remove sd card and headphone jack, they always do, only reason I didn't went for poco f4 is headphone jack. Otherwise it was a no brainer.
X3 pro still the king of this serie

How can you say its barely an upgrade? Do you use your phone without the display to not see the upgrade? 💀💀
I m pretty sure yesteryear was more of an downgrade because of 695, but they are using 778g this time. It includes 5g.
Processor ☯ (5g)
Build quality ☑
NeonHD, 30 Jan 2023Specs look nearly identical to the RN12 Pro SpeedBecause it is 🤣
NeonHD, 30 Jan 2023it's not 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 bad....Its bad considering it gets outperformed by the 2 year old X3 Pro while barely having improvements in other areas considering the generational gap. The 108mp camera is nothing special anymore in the midrange segment while also considering that the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ has an OIS-enabled 200mp camera vs this poop phone's unstabilized 108 lol. Screen aint special when Redmi and Xiaomi can also offer 120Hz Amoled with roughly the same specs.
What if you want a gaming phone for cheap? Well too bad, this thing gets eaten alive by its sibling X4 GT and F4 at nearly the same price while having a Dimensity 8100 and SD870.
Thats the problem, this phone has NO IDENTITY, Xiaomi who owns POCO releases Redmi phones which provides better camera and screens. POCO itself also provides better gaming phones for the same price. This thing is just poop
Another POCO phone that is still inferior in performance to the older X3 Pro. This poop phone is just a Redmi Note wannabe with a midrange chip + decent cameras.
Specs look nearly identical to the RN12 Pro Speed
DISAPPOINTING processor, the last one GOOD model from Poco X series was the X3 Pro that was a very good phone, even with many motherboards flawed from factory bricking phones all over the world an issue Xiaomi-Poco slide under tha carpet. X4 Pro was garbage and now this X5 Pro it's kinda-meh hopefully the X5 GT lives up the performance of the X4 GT but with an AMOLED display.

but generally, and in other devices, while consuming less or equivalent power, the 8+ barely loses more than 10% of its peak performance over 30 minutes of pushing it in stress testing.
How do you put a stronger processor on a phone that has two years from now, and put a new one in your phone with a processor that is weaker than the Poco x3 Pro processor? We are now in 2023. put a processor stornger than snapdragon 860 in poco x5 pro
AnonD-454049, 28 Jan 2023you are a joke, obviously you cannot tell the difference between a flagship and midrange chip ... moreNot really true. There's a very limited set of AAA titles that won't run even on high settings at 60fps without lag on midrange processorrs. If you're using call of duty or something on a snapdragon 888 even, you won't be using even 50 percent of the throughput of the CPU and GPU. Most people get phones with the latest snapdragon chipset and think it's going to give them exponentially better performance than a midrange chipset but it's not the case at all. Even genshin impact will run fine on medium settings on a snapdragon 730G and that's a midrange chipset. I don't think you know what you're talking about.
