An entry level with a careful design
The Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro is an entry level with a nice design. We are entitled to a flat screen perforated in the center at the top, all protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Quite discreet on the front, it is on the back that the smartphone with the acronym “POCO” is noticeable, in a black frame width where we find the photo module.
In addition, the Poco M4 Pro 4G consists of a triple photographic module: a 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. One thing is for sure, you won’t win photo contests with it, but for an entry-level smartphone, the photo quality is decent. Especially since we take advantage of an ultra wide angle sensor here that can be useful in certain situations.
Sufficient performance for the price.
Returning to the front, the M4 Pro is supported by a 6.43-inch LCD screen with Full HD + definition. The absence of OLED is felt, but we are left with a well-calibrated and bright screen, also capable of displaying 90 Hz for more fluidity. To operate efficiently, it is equipped with MediaTek Helio G96 along with 6 GB of RAM. Even if 3D games can’t be started, this setting is effective on a daily basis and will run your favorite apps without too much difficulty. This version introduces the MIUI 13 interface with Android 11 for a smooth user experience. Please note that this model does not take advantage of the 5G network.
In terms of autonomy, the M4 Pro 4G is not far behind and incorporates a large 5000 mAh battery, to last a day and a half, or even two depending on your use. In addition to being durable, the smartphone recharges quickly thanks to the presence of a 33W fast charge that allows you to go from 0 to 54% in 30 minutes. A good score for this price range. And finally, we also find in the Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5 mm jack, two stereo speakers and a fingerprint reader on the side.
