Verdict & Editor’s Opinion
The POCO M2 Pro is the best phone at this budget but unfortunately, we missed the 5G connectivity in this phone. The POCO M2 Pro is not a 5G phone so it feels like a major issue because this generation looks for fast connectivity options in their phone.
The Fast internet gives you low ping while you play online games like PUBG Mobile, BGMI, COD Mobile, etc. But if you are ready to sacrifice with the 5G connection then you definitely should go with this phone.
I would like to tell you that, it is not worth buying at rs 11,999 without 5G connectivity because there are some phones already launched in India with better specs & fast connectivity like Redmi Note 12, Tecno Spart Go, etc.
But if you are a POCO Fan and want to buy the best POCO phone at this budget then I will definitely recommend you to buy POCO M2 Pro. This phone has the advantage of a Fast Refresh Rate Display and an Optimized processor, but lack of 5G connectivity, it gets back in the ranking.
