The Xiaomi are clearly the reference in the entry-level range, but there are many other cheap phones, even some from POCO, which are even sold on the official Xiaomi website.
Although mid-range phones are getting better and better, many users simply want a phone that works smoothly in everyday life, has a good battery, is an entry-level model and doesn’t cost a lot of money. There are several brands that compete fiercely, including Xiaomi, although there are rivals that outshine it.
One of them comes from the same family, the first cousins of POCO, mobile phones that you can find in the Xiaomi catalog on their website. There are several that cost less than 200 euros and are not bad at all, especially one, the POCO M5 which Amazon has reduced to 149 euros.
It could undoubtedly be among the phones with the best value for money, because for this price it offers everything that many users could need: good display, attractive design and 5,000 mAh battery that lasts for two days without too many problems is sufficient.
POCO M5 is the latest mobile phone in POCO’s M series, equipped with a 6.58-inch IPS screen, 90Hz refresh rate and Helio G99 processor with 4G connectivity.
In addition, the fact that it is for sale on Amazon increases its appeal since you can have it at home in just 24 hours and without having to pay a single cent in shipping costs, regardless of whether you have a Prime account or not. .
However, being a Prime user opens the door to express shipping both to your home and to some of the thousands of pickup points that Amazon has throughout Spain.
Full HD trousers and a design that stands out
Unlike other budget phones that are practically clones of each other, the POCO M5 has a back that imitates skin and is also very colorful, especially the yellow one.
Not only does it have an eye-catching aesthetic, but it also has an excellent Full HD 90Hz screen and 18W fast charging, among other features that differentiate it from the usual in its price segment.
Another plus point is the MediaTek Helio G99 as a processor, which can run any Android application as a chip fluid, without fanfare, since it is far from the Dimensity of the same brand in performance, but without lag and without slowdowns.
Even in the Xiaomi catalog there aren’t many devices that can clearly stand up to this, so now that it’s reduced in price it’s a great option as a cheap mobile phone.
