Design and Build Quality
The Poco C55 has a distinctive yet recognizable design similar to other smartphones in its portfolio. The phone’s back panel displays the outstanding Poco camera module, while the front has a sizable display with a significant chin at the bottom. This polycarbonate back panel has a leather-stitched pattern that gives it a luxurious appearance and feels while improving scratch and scuff resistance.
Poco boasts a rear fingerprint sensor for quick unlocking. However, some people with little hands may find its placement awkward. One of the few low-cost smartphones with an IP rating is the Poco C55, which also has an IP52 water and dust-resistant rating.
Xiaomi Poco C55 Display
A 6.7-inch LCD screen with HD+ quality and a 60Hz refresh rate are available on the Poco C55. The display also supports a 120Hz touch sampling rate for increased touch sensitivity. The Poco C55’s display has great viewing angles, with no colour inversion or degradation when viewed from the sides. Although you might need to turn it to its maximum when using the device outside in direct sunshine, the brightness is enough for various lighting situations.
Performance-wise, the Poco C55 is no slouch, thanks to its MediaTek Helio G85 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. The phone easily manages daily duties, and performance is unaffected by the eMMC storage until it starts to fill up.
Xiaomi Poco C55 Camera
The Poco C55’s camera hardware is one of its most noteworthy features. It has a 50MP primary camera and a QVGA sensor for depth perception. There is a 5MP selfie camera on the front for your social media requirements. The phone has a variety of camera functions to improve your photographic abilities and can shoot 1080p FHD videos at 30 frames per second.
The rear 50MP camera produces great photos in bright sunlight, but the quality begins to suffer in dimly lit indoor environments. Even though the camera app has several functionalities found in other smartphones, it needs to be updated. The 5MP front-facing camera could be better for indoor photography, and night mode doesn’t dramatically improve picture quality.
For a low-cost smartphone, the MIUI 13 operating system, which is based on Android 12, is provided with the Poco C55. However, the MIUI version on the C55 feels more stripped-down than the MIUI 13 found on Xiaomi’s mid-range or flagship handsets. It needs some design components, giving it a more finished appearance.
Exceptional Battery Life
A 10W in-box charger and a 5000mAh battery are included with the Poco C55. The phone’s battery life in our tests was exceptional, lasting more than a day with moderate usage. Even with heavy use, you can receive a full day’s battery life. The phone can be fully charged from 1% to 100% in around 2 hours using the provided 10W charging brick.
Should you buy Xiaomi Poco C55?
The Poco C55 is a standout low-cost smartphone with a distinctive appearance, strong performance, and a respectable camera arrangement. Even though it has certain drawbacks, like a subpar selfie camera and an old micro USB connector, the Xiaomi Poco C55 is a great option for people looking for a low-cost smartphone without sacrificing quality.
