Build and Design

The design and aesthetics of the POCO F5 make it attractive and great to own.  Every inch of the POCO handset makes it an appealing high-end phone, although it is a mid-tier device. It measures 161.1 x 75 x 7.9 mm and weighs 181g, making it a lightweight phone that is easy to hold and carry around. It is lighter than the Redmi Note 12 4G and Xiaomi Redmi Note 125G. It is a dual SIM, allowing you to choose the best networks to subscribe to and enjoy the services.  The device is IP53 rated, being both water and dustproof. POCO F5 comes in Black, White and Blue colour options, hence a handful array of colours depending on your taste and preferences.


The handset boasts a bright, 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate which is way better than IPS LCD and TFT screens on some handsets. At 1,000 nits peak brightness and 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution, you are assured of great experiences when exploring the internet and browsing through multi-media. The exemplary display is worth protecting; hence kudos to the Redmi team for the tamper-proof Corning Gorilla Glass 5 installed on the handset.


Installed on the handset is a single, 16 MP, f/2.5, (wide) selfie camera capable of taking decent image shots and 1080p@30/60 fps video recording.

Packed at the rear of the handset is a robust, triple camera set-up consisting of:

  • 64 MP, f/1.8, (wide), 1/2″, 0.7µm, PDAF, OIS
  • 8 MP, f/2.2, 120˚ (ultrawide), 1/4″, 1.12µm
  • 2 MP, f/2.4, (macro) sensor

Featuring Dual-LED dual-tone flash, HDR, and panorama, the user has options to pick from depending on the location, lighting, and scenery. The primary camera can take 4K@30fps, and 1080p@30/60/120fps video shots, with gyro-EIS support for stabilization.

Processing Power and Efficiency

POCO F5 runs on the latest Android 13 OS platform, Android 13, complemented with MIUI 14 for customization. A Qualcomm SM7475-AB Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 (4 nm) runs operations in the background and ensures efficiency and fast processing of commands. Supporting the chipset and ensuring the seamless running of the handset, whether multi-tasking, live streaming or playing games is the Octa-core (1×2.91 GHz Cortex-X2 & 3×2.49 GHz Cortex-A710 & 4×1.8 GHz CPU and Adreno 725 GPU. Combined, the processing unit makes a good case regarding reliability, fast processing, and enabling prompt response to commands issued by the user without experiencing lags and stuttering.

Memory Space

Equally enabling seamless operations is great RAM and ROM installed on the handset. It comes with an inbuilt 256GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 12GB RAM. The space is quite sufficient for storing data, files and photos with no inconveniences due to limited storage space or lagging due to RAM issues. It is thus understandable that the phone does not support additional memory via MicroSD.

Network and Communications

Another great component that makes the POCO F5 worth owning in 2023 is its network connectivity. It is 5G enabled and supports up to 5G networks, depending on your network supplier and coverage in your area. With 5G, the user is assured of fast uploading and downloading content and data. You can opt for the POCO F5 for faster and more efficient uploading and downloading of files, videos and online communication.


Several sensors are installed on the handset, which enables convenience when communicating and handling the device.

  • Fingerprint (side-mounted) sensor
  • Accelerometer
  • Gyroscope
  • Proximity sensor
  • Compass


A Li-Po 5,000 mAh, non-removable battery powers the POCO F5. A fast 67W charger enabled quick charge of the battery. The adapter can charge 1-100% of the battery in 46 minutes.
