The Poco M4 Pro 5G is a very low-priced smartphone that has very few weaknesses for a device in this price-range. Our review reveals what the M4 Pro 5G is all about.

The Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G has a slightly bigger screen than its predecessor. The 1080p screen now measures 6.6 inches (16.76 cm) and has a 90-Hz refresh rate. The brightness has increased, but the black value has dropped. This is why the display offers only a mediocre contrast ratio. Xiaomi, once again, used a PWM-free panel, which means that there is no flickering.

The Poco M4 Pro 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810. There are two versions: One with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of UFS 2.2 memory and the other with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space. There is also an SD card slot. The Xiaomi smartphone supports Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC and 5G. The number of supported frequency bands is rather impressive for this kind of device. Moreover, the Poco M4 Pro 5G features an IR blaster, headphone jack and an FM tuner.

It is unfortunate that there is no real Dual SIM support. The Poco M4 Pro 5G relies on a Hybrid SIM solution. Because the smartphone uses an LCD panel there is no Always-on-Display functionality, which is particularly disappointing given that there is no LED indicator. When it compared to the predecessor, the screen is brighter, but the contrast ratio is lower. Furthermore, the signal-to-noise ratio of the headphone jack is a little bit worse. However, most users should not notice any difference in everyday use.

With an MSPR of 230 Euros (~$263), the Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G seems like a great deal. Right now, it is available on Amazon.
