POCO X6 5G Review in 10 points

design

The POCO X6 5G boasts a standout design with a rectangular cutout for its rear camera, which protrude causing wobbling when laid on a flat surface. The Snowstorm White colour has a sand-like texture at the back which looks stunning.

display

The POCO X6 5G has a 6.67-inch 1.5K 120Hz OLED display. It has 1800 nits peak brightness which delivers crisp visuals even in sunlight with good viewing angles Additionally the Gorilla Glass Victus protection ensures durability against occasional drops.

Rear Camera

The POCO X6 5G features a 64MP+8MP+2MP rear camera. it excels in ideal lighting but lacks details and colours in low lighting. Also the images captured in low lighting and night appear grainy. The edge detection of portrait mode performs really well.

Front Camera

The POCO X6 5G comes with a 16MP front camera. It captures facial details and skin tone really well.

Performance

The POCO X6 5G is powered by Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 SoC. It handles multitasking effortlessly without any slowdowns or crashes. The device delivers smooth gaming even with demanding games at maximum settings, staying cool even during long gaming sessions.

Software

The POCO X6 5G runs MIUI 14.0.2 out of the box. The device has some bloatware which can be uninstalled. And the MIUI is functional, offering familiar features. Given past issues with Xiaomi HyperOS on the POCO X6 Pro, sticking to MIUI for the standard variant is a wise choice.

Battery

The POCO X6 5G houses a 5,100mAh battery. In the PCMark Work 3.0 battery life test, the device lasted an impressive 12 hours and 47 minutes. In daily use, it typically lasted a day and a half on a full charge. Even with heavy usage, the handset can last at least a day.

Charging

The POCO X6 5G supports 67W charging. The device goes from 0 to 100 percent in just 45 minutes. And POCO still includes the 67W charger in the retail box, unlike some other brands.

Verdict

The POCO X6 5G is a high-performance phone suitable for gaming, video streaming, and multitasking. It has fast charging and the battery lasts over a day too. The phone doesn't have the best cameras design, which might cause problems if you dislike using a cases. Overall, it's a top choice as a performance oriented device in its price range.
