62% Xiaomi Poco M4 5G review
Source: GSM Arena English
The global Poco M4 5G is a bit hard to recommend. Just to clarify once again, in an increasingly confusing turn of events, Xiaomi decided to put out a version of the M4 5G for global markets that is different from the regular Poco M4 5G already available primarily in India. This new variant is a downgrade compared to its namesake, which is already quite the downgrade compared to the closely priced Poco M4 Pro 5G. Putting that aside for a bit, the Poco M4 5G looks decent on paper for its budget price tag. It packs features like a 90Hz display, a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, splash resistance and Gorilla Glass 3 front, a 3.5mm jack, IR blaster, plenty of sensors and a big 5,000 mAh battery with an excellent endurance rating in our testing. Speaking of tests, however, we just have to bring up the sub-par performance of the display on our unit. It is not bright enough to use comfortably across varied use case scenarios. That's probably its single biggest downside. Even on a shoestring budget, you can get a better phone with features like an AMOLED display and stereo speakers.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
