The Poco X6 5G’s design is clean and simple as always. Its back is made out of glass that has a glossy finish and it is prone to fingerprint smudges. You can avoid those smudges if you use the free case that it comes with. You can see the Poco branding on the right side of the camera module and the 5G logo at the bottom left. As for the camera module, it houses a triple camera setup with a single LED flash. We will talk about this more later in this article.

Display

The bezeless and chinless design gives a good feeling since you can pretty much watch a video on the whole screen. One thing that I don’t like about this is that they could have placed the punch hole cutout on the upper left side of the screen so that it doesn’t look like it’s blocking our view.

The 120Hz refresh rate is always a must-have for me since it allows me to navigate through everything fast and smoothly.
