The Poco X4 Pro 5G might not be the Poco (phone) you want. We literally heard those words in our heads, with Obi-Wan Kenobi’s voice as we sat down to gather our thoughts on the X4 Pro.
And if you’re truly looking for a sequel to the Poco X3 Pro, you won’t find it. If you’re looking for an affordable mid-range phone updated with the Poco X3 NFC, you’ve come to the right place.
We can and will not hide the true nature of the Poco X4 Pro 5G, a global repackaged version of the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G with a new back cover. Here is a comparison of the two.

The Poco X4 Pro has a 6.67 inch 120Hz Super AMOLED display and a Snapdragon 695 5G chipset, unlike the Poco X3 Pro’s flagship Snapdragon 860, but with some improvements over the Poco X3’s NFC Snapdragon 732G. However, this mid-range SoC delivers performance. of a good processor and 5G connectivity
The camera comes with a high-resolution 108MP main camera, 8MP ultra wide-angle lens and 2MP macro lens. Unlike other Redmi Note 11 and previous Poco X3 phones, there is no depth sensor here.
Poco X4 Pro offers stereo speakers and all sorts of fan-favorite features like FM radio, 3.5mm jack, microSD expansion, and even IR. Its large 5000 mAh battery charges incredibly fast. including 67W charger.
The Poco X4 Pro 5G runs on MIUI 13 for Poco, which is based on Android 11. We were a bit surprised to find the latest MIUI without the latest Android OS, but this is also not a first for Xiaomi, and we are sure the update will arrive soon enough.

If we were to compare the €250 Poco X3 Pro to the €300 Poco X4 Pro, we can’t imagine being unfair. The whole economy has changed and the world continues to change as you read this. That’s right, the Poco X4 Pro isn’t the best phone at a good price. Can’t do 4K video
But it looks likely to be one of the newer phones that will soon replace the good old deal as it nears its end. And we can see that this Poco will continue to live like this as they try all sorts of modern technologies, including 5G, and offer them at incredibly low prices in 2022.
Unboxing the Poco X4 Pro 5G
The Poco X4 Pro’s retail box contains a 67W Xiaomi charger and a 6A-rated cable. This is the same charger you get with most new Xiaomi phones these days.
The package also includes a transparent soft cover and a slim lock screen. The film is usually pre-installed on Xiaomi smartphones, but it appears to be a cost-saving solution for a new phone. We appreciate these additional features. But considering the complexity of the application We can’t help but make factory apps the best choice.
Design, build quality, handling
The Poco X4 Pro 5G is easily different from the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G with its unique back cover. Especially thanks to Camera Island. We appreciate the smaller Poco logo – it’s big enough for the Poco X3 series.
Taking the shape of the Redmi Note 11 phone, the Poco X4 Pro has a flat glass front. The back is a flat glass. and a glued matte plastic frame The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, but we don’t know the manufacturer/brand of the back glass.
Poco X4 Pro has an IP53 dust and splash resistance, which is highly appreciated. And we can also see rubber insulation in various important parts. Of course they are both fundamental resistors. This means that the phone is not dustproof and waterproof. and there should be nothing to hide It should work fine even in the pouring rain and it’s doing just fine.
There is a Laser Black version that looks unbelievably good due to its simplicity. This is definitely the Poco, and you can create special effects on the back. no matter how delicate As soon as the light dimmed and the reflection began to emit more laser beams backwards.
The Poco X4 Pro is available in Laster Blue and Poco Yellow, both with a glossy finish. but when reflected The reflected light also mimics a laser.
With that said, let’s take a closer look at the Poco X4 Pro.
The 6.67-inch screen size has become the gold standard for Redmi Note Pro models, so it should come as no surprise that the Poco X4 Pro uses a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED display, just like the Redmi Note 11 Pro, Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, and possibly the Redmi Note 11 Pro. It is possible that everything that Xiaomi’s Redmi Note Pro will release this year. But we’re not looking at it as a criticism. On the contrary, this OLED panel has performed incredibly well so far, and the Poco X4 Pro’s screen looks great too.
