The super offers continue Black Friday, where all the manufacturers are delighting us with (more or less) crazy discounts on their selected flagship products: today is the turn of POCO which for some days has launched its bombs in the smartphone sector and beyond, because in the list we also find the Watch, a product that we have not tried yet but which promises to be a gem not to be poco precisely because of its value for money. I'll reveal the other protagonists of the offers which, I remind you, they will be valid until 27 November at 23.59 pm.
The best smartphones of POCO on offer on Black Friday!
POCO X4Pro 5G
The undisputed protagonist not only for quality but also for its price is certainly the POCO X4 Pro 5G: I personally tested it when it came out and even then I told you how I considered the work done by the company to be excellent which, despite launching a mid-range model, immediately tried to compete with the bigger ones, because this is a well-kept smartphone from every point of view, starting from the aesthetic one.
POCO X4 Pro is equipped with a DotDisplay AMOLED with 6.67 ″ diagonal inches and FullHD + resolution, compatible with a frequency of update up to 120Hz, touch sampling rate up to 360Hz: it's a panel with very good colors and surprising brightness. Personally I'm a big AMOLED lover, so for me it wins hands down.
On the performance front, the company has used one on this model Snapdragon 695 5G, 8GB RAM memory e 256GB of storage. Ok, it wasn't the best CPU that POCO could use, but when I put it to the test I realized that it does its job in a more than good way: in the benchmarks it makes good numbers, the temperatures are always under control and also the connectivity aspect, with 5G , I was fully satisfied.
The photographic part consists of a 108 MP f/1.9 main lens, the 8 MP f/2.2 ultra wide lens and the 2 MP f/2.4 Macro lens, as well as obviously the LED flash. Here, although we are not dealing with top-of-the-range photographic lenses, the camera of this one POCO X4 Pro, overall, convinced me: the main lens is able to take good quality photographs, with well-calibrated colors and with adequate sharpness. In addition, I noticed that it handles dynamic range well and HDR is well optimized. The last gem that makes it an absolute best buy at this price is the battery: 5000mAh and 67W Turbo Charging. Need I say more?
The price until November 27th is €229,90 thanks to the discount code POCOBG20, a good 80 euros less than the list price. At this price it has very few (if any) rivals. In addition, adding only € 39,90 you can also have the POCO Buds Pro, which would otherwise cost €69,99.
POCO M4 Pro
The other protagonist of Black Friday by POCO it's his M4 PRO, in the 4G LTE version: aesthetically if you have a careful eye you will surely have noticed some similarities with the previous model, but poco it matters because despite being even cheaper it remains a product with excellent assembly and good construction materials. It is equipped with biometric sensor for fingerprints on the right side, a 3.5mm jack for headphones and also an IR blaster to use it as a real remote control.
Compared to the price range in which we find it, especially now that it's on offer, the POCO M4 PRO it ranks above the average as regards the display: it is, in fact, a 6.43 "inch unit with FullHD + resolution, 90Hz refresh rate but above all matrix panel AMOLED DotDisplay, like more expensive models from the same company. Here too the excellent color rendering is confirmed and above all the excellent backlighting which can reach a peak of 1000 nits.
The Helio G96, together with the 6 or 8GB of RAM memory, are the protagonists in the hardware field: here too the performance is good, but 5G is absent, which is instead available on the special dedicated variant that comes with the Dimension 810 also by Mediatek. In the energy field, he too is confirmed as a bomb: it has a good 5000 mAh under the body and supports fast charging up to 33W, all values slightly above the market average.
The optics on which POCO M4 Pro can count are three, one more than the 5G model: let's talk about one 64MP f / 1.8 main lens with PDAF focus but without optical stabilization, a 8MP ultra-wide with f / 2.2 aperture and Field of View equal to 118° and finally the 2MP Macro lens. In the full review you will find a dedicated insight and many shots from this smartphone.
La black friday bomb brings the POCO M4 PRO on offer at €159,90 thanks to the appropriate coupon POCOFRIDAY10, for the 6/128GB version and € 209,90 for the 8 / 256GB version. Here too by adding only € 39,90 you can also have the POCO Buds Pro, which would otherwise cost €69,99.
Faux leather back cover, impeccable assembly and excellent touch and feel: gentlemen, the latest smartphone from POCO on offer these days is the POCO M5, which comes with an even more attractive price than what was seen in the introductory offers in the first days after its officialization in Italy.
The great return on this model is undoubtedly the physical and no longer virtual proximity sensor, which many had criticized in the past months; then, for the rest, he has at his disposal the Helio G99 SoC, A new 6nm Octa-Core chipset by Mediatek which completes the circle with 4GB of RAM and 64 / 128GB of internal UFS 2.2 storage. At full price it was hardware that I hadn't appreciated 100%, but thanks to the offers of this Black Friday the situation improves by far.
POCO M5 also has a 6.58 inch IPS display with 2408 x 1080 pixel resolution with 90Hz support. On the photographic front, however, the main sensor of which POCO M5 is equipped with a 50MP f / 1.8 with PDAF focus, and then there are two lenses from 2MP f / 2.4 for macro photos and for portrait mode shots; the selfie lens, on the other hand, is alone 5MP f / 2.2. The wide angle is missing, but if you need it, I suggest you aim for the X4 Pro model, which yes has a higher price of around €50, but overall it will make the user experience totally different.
He, the POCO M5, we find it on offer with an additional €10 discount € 159,90 in the 4 / 64GB version while 20 euros more, or €179,90 for the 4/128GB variant. The coupon to use is POCOFRIDAY10. In this case, if you want the POCO Buds Pro, the expense to be incurred is € 59,99.
Bonus: POCO Watch
Last, but not least, is the bonus that I have selected for you from dozens of offers POCO: the wearable of POCO, with a very simple name "Watch” is on offer at 79,99 but, thanks to a further discount reserved by the company with the coupon POCOBG15, we can take it home with only €64,99 which, in fact, make it one of the most attractive smartwatches under €100.
The reason is very simple: he is equipped with sensors for monitoring the heart rate H24 as well as blood oxygen levels, has water resistance up to 5ATM as well as having a 1.6″ AMOLED touch display. Among the supported sports modes, which are over 100, we find trekking, running, cycling and many others. Plus the smart watch of POCO it can record phases of deep sleep, light sleep and REM sleep, but also sporadic naps during the day.
At the moment I have not yet had the opportunity to try it in person, but I hope to have the opportunity to try it as soon as possible because it seems very interesting.
