Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G smartphone review: 5G phone with 108 MP & 120 Hz OLED at a bargain price

Over 1,100 nits in the cheap mid-range. The Poco X4 Pro 5G comes with a lot of hardware highlights for an RRP of around US$ 300. On top of 5G support, the successor to the Poco X3 Pro gets various improvements, including a very bright AMOLED display with 120 Hz. However, the X4 Pro does not make everything better ...
Test Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G Smartphone

For many users, one of the most important innovations of the Poco X4 Pro may well be the introduction of the 5G standard in the Poco X Pro lineup. However, this improvement in connectivity comes at the cost of reduced performance because the Snapdragon 860 in the Poco X3 Pro is nominally stronger than the Snapdragon 695 that now equips the successor. 

The display of the Poco X4 Pro 5G is a big step forward and no compromises are made here. Xiaomi no longer relies on an LCD panel for its mid-range smartphone, but rather on AMOLED technology with peak values of over 1,000 nits. The refresh rate is still 120 Hz.

The recommended retail price for the Poco X4 Pro 5G is around US$ 315.

Colors of the Poco X4 Pro
Colors of the Poco X4 Pro

Although the Poco X4 Pro 5G is comparatively heavy at 205 grams, it is lighter than its predecessor. But the Pro model of the X4 series is not really compact either. The glass backside is adorned with "laser stripes" which spread over the casing like the lights of small spotlights. The mid-range smartphone is available in three different colors: Laser Black, Laser Blue and Poco Yellow. The Poco X4 Pro has IP 53 certification, which means that it is officially dust and water resistant.

The build quality and feel are on a high level for a smartphone around US$ 300. Sure, the plastic frame deprives the Poco X4 Pro of some of the value of a high-end phone, but it doesn't feel cheap. However, the flat glass panel encasing the cameras on the back feels a bit bulky in the hands.

In contrast to the predecessor, the manufacturer cuts back on Corning Gorilla Glass 6; only Glass 5 is used for the Poco X4 Pro. The edges on the top and bottom of the 6.67-inch display are moderately sized, which is reflected in the solid display surface ratio of 86%.

Equipment - Poco X4 Pro 5G with 3.5 mm jack

The Poco X4 Pro 5G does not have any real points of criticism in terms of equipment for an inexpensive mid-range smartphone, offering all the features that one could reasonably expect from this price range. These include stereo speakers, an IR blaster, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.1, an NFC chip for contactless payment, dual-SIM and the Always On function.

In addition to the version with 128 GB of UFS storage and 6 GB of RAM, there is also the option of 256 GB with 8 GB RAM (RRP: US$ 315). The internal storage can be expanded by up to 1 TB via microSD cards. Although external peripherals and storage devices can be connected to the Poco smartphone, the USB-C port only works according to the 2.0 standard. Wired image output is therefore not possible, but Miracast is supported.

microSD Card reader

The Xiaomi phone has a hybrid card slot, which means that two nano-SIM cards or a microSD card can be inserted. In terms of copying speed, the Poco X4 is not exactly fast at just 12 MB/s; a Samsung Galaxy M23 copies images more than three times faster. On the other hand, the microSD performance (in combination with the AV PRO V60 reference card) is convincing in the Cross Platform Disk Test.

Software - Poco X4 Pro with Android 11

Xiaomi combines the Android system with its in-house user interface MIUI for Poco in version 13. At the time of review, however, the Poco phone is only based on Android 11, which is better considering the RRP of around US$ 300. The security patches from July 2022 are very up to date

The Poco X4 Pro should certainly get an upgrade to Android 12, but the manufacturer does not provide any official information on this. The update guarantee of the Xiaomi 12 series, i.e. three major Android updates and four years of security updates, does not apply to the Poco series. More than 3 years, including 2 major upgrades, should not be expected.

With MIUI 13 for Poco, the X4 Pro uses a redesigned MiSans font, a variety of new widgets, and support for Google's "Material You" design. We cannot make out any advertising banners or ads within the MiUI 13 interface, for example when an app is installed. Generally speaking, these so-called MSA (MIUI System Ads) can be disabled quite easily in the system settings under "Passwords & Security".

Communication & GNSS - Xiaomi smartphone with NFC

For home WLAN, the Poco X4 Pro offers the ac standard with WiFi 5, including the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency ranges, which ensures solid transfer rates in our measurements. The rates are on par with the low-priced mid-range competition, but 322-349 mbit/s is not really fast. In combination with our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router, the Poco X4 Pro proves to be consistent when sending data, but the initial phase of receiving performs poorly under testing.

In addition to the fast 5G standard, the mid-range smartphone from Xiaomi supports access to a total of 17 LTE bands - all the relevant LTE frequencies for the German-speaking region, including band 28, are covered. The Poco phone is also well equipped for traveling, such as in the USA.

The Poco X4 Pro uses the main satellite systems GPS (L1), GLONASS (G1), BeiDou (B1) and Galileo (E1) as well as SBAS for localization. In order to evaluate tracking accuracy in practice, we took the mid-range phone on a short trip and recorded the route together with a Garmin Venu 2 for comparison purposes.

We like the tracking capabilities of the Poco X4 Pro for the most part. However, deviations from the selected routes are sometimes clearly visible upon examining the GPS history in detail. Despite minor inaccuracies, the Xiaomi phone is suitable for navigation tasks, but a satellite fix indoors takes a very long time and the signal strength is not very pronounced with an SNR value of 23.

Telephony & Voice Quality - Poco with dual SIM

In review: Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G smartphone

Speech quality is good and without abnormalities. Voices are clearly reproduced and also conveyed very clearly on the receiving end. Standards such as VoLTE or Wi-Fi calls are also supported. Thanks to the well functioning microphones, the Poco X4 Pro also impresses when it comes to video calling - tested via Skype - and the speakers.

Users should not have high expectations of the Poco X4 Pro's selfie camera, but the photo quality is solid. In difficult lighting conditions, the 16-megapixel shots are often overexposed, especially in portrait mode, and the sky looks burned out. Moreover, the soft focus is quite pronounced.

On paper, Poco has made major improvements to the rear-facing main camera, which now has 108 megapixels and an aperture of f/1.9. As is usual for this price range, optical image stabilization is absent, so images become blurry and out of focus relatively quickly in the dark. The illumination is also not very good. But for the price, the photo quality achieved in bright surroundings is appealing. Image sharpness and contrasts are convincing in daylight.

The 108 MP camera is accompanied by a 118 degree ultra-wide-angle camera with 8 megapixels and a 2-megapixel macro lens. The ultra-wide-angle camera has solid photo quality, but offers little detail and low sharpness.

Although the main camera of the Poco X4 Pro has a very high resolution, video can only be recorded at up to 1080p at 30 fps - a higher frame rate or a UHD option is not available. Switching between the main and ultra-wide-angle lenses during video recording is also not possible. The well-known video modes of the X3 Pro, such as dual video, are still on board.

We also find the color fidelity in the photos of the Poco X4 Pro to be very appealing. Under controlled lighting conditions, we analyzed the color representation of the 108 MP optics in comparison to the actual reference colors. The colors were measured once under full studio lighting and once at 1 lux light intensity. In our ColorChecker Passport test, the Xiaomi phone displays only a few slight outliers (Delta E values >10).

Poco X4 Pro with 67 watt power adapter

The Poco X4 Pro comes with a modular 67-watt power supply, a data or charging cable, a protective cover, a SIM needle and a quick start guide with warranty terms and conditions. A screen protector is applied ex-works.

A two year warranty is provided in Germany. This may differ in your country of purchase, so be sure to check with your supplier before purchasing.

Input Devices & Operation - Xiaomi smartphone with FaceUnlock

The fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button unlocks the Poco X4 Pro 5G reliably, but not very quickly. The FaceUnlock feature via the front-facing camera, which takes place via a rather unsafe 2D facial recognition solution, also works reliably in everyday use

Inputs on the 6.67-inch OLED display are accurately implemented right up to the corners of the touchscreen. Due to the 360 Hz sampling rate, the panel of the Poco X4 Pro is scanned for touches up to 360 times per second, such as in games, which ensures low latency during touches. Thanks to the high refresh rate of 120 Hz, image changes or scrolling on web pages are displayed smoothly.

Display - Xiaomi smartphone with OLED

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The Poco X4 Pro has a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a 2400x1080 resolution and supports a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz. Those wanting to save some energy can also set the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz. An adaptive refresh rate change is not possible.

The OLED panel performs very well in our brightness measurement. With a full white display, the inexpensive mid-range phone from Xiaomi reaches a maximum of 713 cd/m², which is very good for this price range. In the APL18 measurement, which is more representative of everyday use, this even reaches 1,106 cd/m² in the center of the screen. The display thus is well suited for rendering HDR content, although Poco does not officially advertise this.

Due to the OLED panel, flickering cannot be avoided in the Poco X4 Pro. Below a display brightness of 68%, the PWM frequency fluctuates between 159 and 479 Hz. The amplitude curve levels out more up to the maximum brightness and becomes more consistent at 120 Hz.

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 479.1 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 479.1 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 479.1 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19959 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Messreihe mit fixer Zoomstufe und unterschiedlichen Helligkeitseinstellungen

We checked the AMOLED panel's color calibration using CalMAN analysis software. Under factory settings (profile: Standard), the sRGB color space is almost completely covered. According to the manufacturer, the larger DCI-P3 color space is also supported.

Our measured DeltaE values indicate some very small deviation in the colors. Minimal differences can be seen in blue and magenta. An even smaller deviation within the target range (<3) is seen in grayscale reproduction.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.25 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.636 ms rise
↘ 0.616 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.5805 ms rise
↘ 0.6185 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.5 ms).

The Poco phone is well equipped for outdoor use. Bright ambient light does not cause any problems thanks to its high brightness. Only the highly reflective surface prevents good readability in sunlight.

The viewing angle stability of the AMOLED display is very good. The typical drop in brightness is seen at flat viewing angles, but no color distortions were observed.

Performance - Poco X4 Pro 5G with Snapdragon SoC

A Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 is used for the Poco X4 Pro. The chipset, introduced at the end of 2021, offers two fast Cortex A78 cores and 6 power-saving cores based on the ARM Cortex A55. In addition to the CPU cores, the Snapdragon 695 integrates an Adreno 619 as the graphics unit.

In benchmarks, the Xiaomi phone positions itself at the front compared to the mid-range competition. Together with the realme 9 5G, which also uses the Snapdragon 695, the Poco X4 Pro performs well, especially in single-core performance. However, the predecessor with its Snapdragon 860 4G chipset is nominally much more powerful, especially in the multi-core range by virtue of the four Cortex A76 cores.

The 128 GB UFS storage in the Poco X4 Pro delivers only moderate read and write rates. The speed is rather below average for the price range, but this is also due to the low memory bandwidth of the Snapdragon 695 – similar to the Moto G82.

Gaming - Poco X4 Pro 5G at 120 fps

We put the gaming capabilities of the Poco X4 Pro to the test with the tool from our partner GameBench. Although the Xiaomi phone has a responsive OLED panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, the Snapdragon 695 can only make limited use of these features.  

PUBG Mobile essentially runs smoothly, but only 40 fps is possible in the HD setting. We did not have a UHD option for testing, but the Poco X4 Pro achieves a stable 60 fps at low details. The FPS rates in Armajet are also surprisingly good. The Poco phone achieves over 100 fps at times, which is much higher than a Moto G82 with 60 fps.

Temperature

The GFX benchmark on the Poco X4 Pro with problems
The GFX benchmark on the Poco X4 Pro with problems

The case's surface temperatures are neither problematic in idle nor under load. At a maximum of 35 °C, the waste heat measured is not too critical in view of the SoC's performance stability. We evaluated this with the stress test of the GFX benchmark, which repeated the respective OpenGL ES 3.1 scenario thirty times in succession and logged the frame rates. Afterwards, the Xiaomi smartphone was put through its paces in the 3DMark stress tests.

A reduction of the refresh rate under high load does not occur in the Xiaomi phone in everyday use. The performance of the Poco X4 Pro throttles only minimally in both 3DMark test scenarios. The stress test of the GFX benchmark is completed without any problems, but the results could not be retrieved.

Speakers

The dual speaker system of the Poco X4 Pro is sufficiently loud and the sound quality appealing for the price range thanks to stereo sound. The two speakers lack depth, but the mids are reproduced linearly. The super high tones are only slightly present, simiarly to the higher basses.

Headphones can be connected via the 3.5 mm jack. Those who prefer to use Bluetooth for wireless output can fall back on audio codecs ranging from SBC, AAC, aptX, aptXHD to aptX adaptive as well as LDAC and LHDC.
