Xiaomi launched the Poco X5 Pro 5G this year, while the Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G arrived in the middle of 2022. Both 5G-enabled Android smartphones have their own strengths.
Poco has managed to embed a powerful midrange Snapdragon chipset in the X5 Pro, while the Note 12 Pro 5G has a Dimensity SoC. Let’s compare the specifications and features of these midrange smartphones to see which one could be a better choice.
Poco X5 Pro 5G Vs Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G: Display
The Poco X5 Pro 5G features a 6.67-inch 10-bit AMOLED panel with a Full HD+ resolution, Dolby Vision, HDR10+ support, and a 120Hz refresh rate. The display also supports 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut and 1920Hz PWM dimming.
The Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G features a 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate. While both smartphones have an AMOLED screen, the Poco smartphone’s display has a much higher refresh rate.
Poco X5 Pro 5G Vs Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G: Performance
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset powers the Poco X5 Pro 5G. It is a powerful SoC in this price range and can assure 60FPS gaming in several popular titles such as PUBG/BGMI, Call of Duty, and many more. The chipset is paired with up to 8GB of RAM and buyers get up to 256GB of internal storage.
The Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G packs a MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. There’s another variant with 128GB of internal storage, but the RAM size stays the same.
The Snapdragon 778G chipset powering the Poco smartphone can beat the Dimensity 810 SoC in demanding tasks. However, both smartphones pack 8GB RAM, which is more than enough for everyday multitasking.
Poco X5 Pro 5G Vs Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G: Cameras
The Poco X5 Pro 5G has a triple rear camera setup, headlined by a 108MP primary sensor with an f/1.9 aperture. It is paired with an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro lens. The smartphone has a centrally placed punch-hole cutout on the screen for the front-facing 16MP camera.
The Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G has a triple camera setup on the back, headlined by an identical 108MP primary camera, a 2MP depth camera, and a 2MP macro lens. The device has a 16MP camera at the front with support for HDR mode.
Both smartphones have very similar imaging hardware. The Poco smartphone does have a slightly better secondary camera, but the real-world difference won’t be noticeable to most.
Poco X5 Pro 5G Vs Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G: Battery
Poco has embedded a 5000mAh battery, which supports 67W wired fast charging. The Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G ships with a 5000mAh battery with support for 33W wired fast charging technology.
Both smartphones may have identical batteries, but the Poco smartphone can recharge at twice the speed owing. Battery endurance, however, will largely depend on usage patterns.
Poco X5 Pro 5G Vs Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G: Which One To Buy?
Infinix has several smartphones in the budget and affordable segment. The Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G is a mid-range Android smartphone much like the Poco X5 Pro 5G.
Both smartphones appear to be equally matched in several key areas such as battery capacity, camera setup, and display technology. However, the Poco smartphone has a better AMOLED display with a faster refresh rate, and the presence of Snapdragon 778G inside the Poco X5 Pro 5G makes the smartphone a winner in this comparison.
