Ignite Your Hyperpower With The POCO F5 Series Flagships

There’s no doubt that people love getting the best possible performance out of the money they pay. This holds especially true for hardcore mobile gamers and power users. That’s why the POCO F5 series is meant to fulfill this gap in the market by providing a top-shelf experience but without the mind-shattering price. Here’s everything you need to know about the POCO F5 Series: namely the vanilla model and the F5 Pro.


Starting off with the POCO F5, the company pitches it as “the origin of speed.” That’s supported by the fact that it’s the first global smartphone to come shipped with a Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset. Others may dismiss it as just another mid-range processor, but they couldn’t be more incorrect. This monster is a giant slayer. In fact, on benchmarks it’s solidly defeated the Snapdragon 888 flagship chipset of 2021 and is more or less on par with 2022’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

With that kind of power, you’d easily be able to breeze through all tasks and even the most demanding games like Genshin Impact at maximum settings. Keep all those apps open with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM for awesome multitasking capabilities–and get this, it can even be expanded via Dynamic RAM Expansion 3.0! Need sustained performance? No worries, as LiquidCool Technology 2.0 aims to keep things cool and fresh.

All this power translates to bringing content to life on the crystal-clear 6.67-inch AMOLED DotDisplay. With a refresh rate of 120Hz, everything is buttery-smooth and you won’t have any complaints navigating all the features this smartphone has to offer. Immersion is top-notch since the bezels are minimal at just 2.22 millimeters. BIG thank you to the designers for coming up with an eye-catching 93.4% screen-to-body ratio.

Colors are taken care of by not only AMOLED technology but also Adaptive HDR built-in. Of course, the POCO F5 is perfect for outdoor use with up to 1000 nits of brightness. In the dark, it takes care of your eyes with SGS-certified Low Blue Light Ex eye care. 

Moving on to the camera, the POCO F5 has a triple rear camera setup. It’s highlighted by a 64-megapixel main sensor and supported by both an 8-megapixel ultrawide and a 2-megapixel macro. It has both EIS and OIS for a more stable experience even through movement. It’s sure to be a reliable system that you can use to immortalize your favorite moments – especially since the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 is bolstering its optical capabilities. Oh, and it can take stabilized 4K videos. What more could you ask for?

On top of that, you can unleash your creativity with exciting new features like film frames and filters, allowing you to capture life’s moments like a cinematic masterpiece and give your social media profile a fresh, unique look. Moreover, its in-sensor zoom lets you effortlessly capture stunning cityscapes or awe-inspiring nature scenes from the comfort of your window, delivering clear and close-up photos that will leave you mesmerized.

The icing on the cake is the convenience of never running out of battery with the POCO F5. Thanks to its 67W turbo-charging, you can fully charge its 5000mAh battery in just 46 minutes–while enjoying a TV show or having dinner. This rapid charging ensures you’re always prepared for whatever lies ahead, whether it’s an exciting evening or a busy day.


Now we move on to the bigger brother in the POCO F5 Series: the Pro. While the vanilla version is already impressive as is, this device is pegged to be a “hardcore all-around flagship” with zero compromises whatsoever. It’s everything turned up to 11.

That can be seen with its display, first and foremost. It’s the company’s first-ever WQHD+ flagship display, a considerable step over Full HD. That means it’s significantly clearer and even the most conscious pixel-pinchers will find nothing to complain about here. That unparalleled clarity comes in handy when consuming content that’s heavy on intricate details and small visual tidbits. Just like the other POCO F5, this also comes with an AMOLED panel for those punchy colors and deep blacks.

This display gets even brighter for outdoor use, peaking at around 1400 nits. That easily puts it within flagship territory, especially when you consider the 120Hz refresh rate that keeps everything fluid. It also has 1920Hz PWM dimming as well as Pro HDR technology that intelligently adjusts color settings on the fly to deliver your content in the best way possible.

The POCO F5 Pro also comes with an identical 64/8/2 megapixel camera configuration as its sibling, also with the same EIS and OIS modes. However, there are notable changes: the main ones being the ability to shoot 8K video, motion tracking to keep focus on fast-moving objects, improved optical performance thanks to a higher-end chipset, and a up to 512 GB internal storage to store all that media. Yes, that’s more than half a terabyte in the palm of your hand. This device is perfect for content creators and those who love to take records of their everyday lives since there’s more than enough space to spare.

Also installed are film camera modes that generate output looking like authentic film footage. With 7 filters and 5 frames at your disposal, you can unleash your inner creativity and produce cinematic-quality works.

Up next is the processor. While the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 in the base F5 is an established overperformer, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is a bonafide flagship. It’s not as new as the former but will absolutely DESTROY any task you throw at it without even breaking a sweat. You can even run the most demanding apps and titles at maximum settings and not worry about breaking your device. All this gives it an Antutu score well above the 1 million mark.

Since it’s built on an advanced 4nm process, battery efficiency has also been taken into consideration here. POCO even claims efficiency improvements of over 30%.

Now that we’re talking about battery, the POCO F5 Pro is equipped with a 5160 mAh battery pack. That’s the largest ever we’ve seen on a POCO F series device and definitely packs enough juice to keep this powerhouse going. Should you run this dry, there are two ways to top it up: either plug it up to the wall for a speedy 67W charge capable of 50% in 15 minutes or 30W fast wireless charging that’ll take it to the same 50% in just 32 minutes.

The POCO F5 Pro truly is a hardcore all-around performer for those who want only the “best of the best.” It goes without saying though that you definitely can’t go wrong with any of these POCO F5 Series premium devices.
