The purpose of the Poco F-series is to provide flagship performance at mid-range costs, as stated by one commentator on last week's poll.
Even though it falls short of 2023-level flagship performance, both F5 models achieve that.
Over half of the voters expressed interest in the vanilla Poco F5, making it the clear winner of the two; it is unusual to have such a good response. It easily defeated its Pro sister, as is seen from the Pro's own poll.
The F5's criticism, which also applies to the F5 Pro, was to be expected.
There was a contentious discussion on whether microSD cards are still useful, and some people aren't thrilled with the Poco/Xiaomi software or the associated update schedule (while others enjoy it just fine).
Both F5 models lack a memory card slot, though. The vanilla F5 does at least have a 3.5mm headphone connector. About a third of participants expressed interest in the Poco F5 Pro, while others waited for favourable reviews.

Our in-depth review was published a few days after the poll went live; did it cause you to reconsider your mind?
Aside from the aforementioned criticism, the Pro may have overshot the pricing as it is close to a year old and is not a true flagship despite having a great QHD+ display, 4K/60 and 8K video recording, as well as quick wireless charging.

Xiaomi's Poco F5 Pro will sell well, perhaps not as well as the Poco F5. A few commenters who had already purchased an F5 or an F5 Pro and were satisfied with their decision were visible.
