Poco is not a well-known brand, it is a subsidiary of Xiaomi which markets entry-level smartphones, most often customized Redmi. In September 2022, two new Poco M-series models were released and one of them is currently on promotion. The Xiaomi Poco M5s sees its price drop from 229.90 euros to 175 euros on Cdiscount in its 64 GB version.
If the price of a smartphone does not exceed 200 euros, that does not mean that it is fake. Even for its entry-level references, Xiaomi strives to achieve exemplary quality for the price, and the Poco M5s is no exception to this rule. Available in 128 GB and 64 GB versions, it is this last version that interests us at the moment, because it benefits from a discount of 55 euros.
The Xiaomi Poco M5s in a few points
- An AMOLED screen in Full HD+ resolution
- decent performance
- A camera with 4 sensors
Instead of the usual 229.9 euros, the Xiaomi Poco M5s (64 GB) is now available on sale at 175 euros at Cdiscount.

Where to buy the
Xiaomi Poco M5s at the best price?
If you want to find the no-commitment mobile plan that goes with the Xiaomi Poco M5s, we have compiled the best 4G offers of the moment in this article.
A quality AMOLED screen
While the Xiaomi Poco M5 is content with an LCD display, the Poco M5s flaunts a 6.43-inch AMOLED display in FHD+ resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels), which gives us 409 pixels per inch. For a smartphone at this price, it’s quite honorable. The maximum brightness is announced at 1100 cd / m² and the contrast ratio is established at 4,500,000:1. Figures that at the same time make you dream and leave you wondering, if these latest data are correct, the Poco M5s would do better than the iPhone 14 when it costs five times less.
With such display quality, however, it should hardly come as a surprise that the refresh rate remains stuck at 60 Hz. In any case, streaming and gaming remain comfortable. With the 5000 mAh battery, you can count on a whole day for autonomy. On the other hand, it will be necessary to be satisfied with a fast charge limited to 33 W. At this price, we are not going to be choosy all the same.
Performance that holds up
The Xiaomi Poco M5s has an eight-core processor, a MediaTek Helio G95 which is perfectly cut for gaming, but incompatible with 5G. For comparison, its performance equals the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor that equips the Google Pixel 5. It is also accompanied by 4 GB of LPDDR4X RAM that can be extended up to 8 GB. The Poco M5s is running out of steam so quickly for multitasking. Storage is provided by a 64 GB ROM memory which can also be expanded up to 1 TB.
The photo part is not doing badly either with the presence of four modules on the back: a main sensor of 64 Mpx (f / 1.8), an ultra wide-angle of 8 Mpx (f / 2.2), a sensor 2 MP macro (f/2.4) and a 2 MP depth sensor (f/2.4). You also have a 13MP front sensor for your selfies. The pictures are finally of a quite correct quality. Let’s finish on the audio reproduction which makes us grit our teeth with aggressive highs and absent bass, it’s unpleasant.
Regarding the quality-price ratio, we can say that this Xiaomi Poco M5s is a good choice since few smartphones can be as qualitative at this price.
