Xiaomi Poco F3 Review

In recent years, Poco smartphones have become a favorite of consumers who do not tolerate compromise in any respect - neither in terms of build quality nor functionality. They want to play, take pictures, communicate, watch videos, etc. This is exactly what we see in the next representative of the series - Xiaomi poco f3.

This smartphone is meant to further establish Poco's position in the market. It has received a more powerful processor, more style and a few interesting add-ons that will be talked about in the next lines.


If you follow Xiaomi products closely, you will find similarities between the Xiaomi poco f3 and the Redmi K40. The devices are identical inside and out, with the hero of today's piece also having a bright blue version with a textured panel on the back. Additionally, it is devoid of a version with 12 GB of RAM.

The Xiaomi poco f3 is a large smartphone that is made almost mainly of glass. It has lenses protruding slightly above the body and a dot-shaped notch in the screen.

The compactness of modern phones has almost been left behind. Consumers preferred large screens, making the large dimensions perfectly acceptable. The Xiaomi poco f3 has a body measuring 163.7 x 76.4 x 7.8 mm. It weighs almost 200 grams. You'll use it best with two hands.

You can choose between white, black and blue among the body colors.


The Xiaomi poco f3's large dimensions come from its impressively large screen. In this case, the Xiaomi poco f3 is adorned with a 6.67-inch display. It is surrounded by sufficiently thin bezels, with the bottom one being slightly wider than the rest. The screen resolution is standard - 2400 x 1080 pixels. The aspect ratio is also well known - 20:9.

Among the nice features of the Xiaomi poco f3 screen is the high refresh rate - 120 Hz.


In Xiaomi poco f3 we see a super fast and precise technology for unlocking the device. Facial recognition and fingerprint scanner are available to the user. The first method uses the front camera. In the dark, it can give you a problem as well when you are wearing sunglasses.


Under the beautiful and stylish body of Xiaomi poco f3 is a mid-budget Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor coupled with Adreno 650. That's not a bad solution. On the market, you will find several memory combinations: 6/128 GB or 8/256 GB. No memory card slot is provided. Instead, there are two SIM card slots, 5G support, NFC, several navigation systems, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6.


In recent times, a major criterion for choosing a smartphone is the qualities of its cameras. Xiaomi poco f3 offers 3 cameras on the rear panel. They are the usual suspects - a wide-angle module and an ultra-wide-angle lens. To these we must add a macro module. The main camera is a 48 megapixel with an aperture of ƒ/1.79. The ultra-wide angle is 8-megapixel with a 119-degree viewing angle and an aperture of ƒ/2.2. The macro camera is 5-megapixel.

There are no cardinal changes in the camera application compared to the brand's older models. The underlying algorithms do a decent job with photo adjustments. The selfie camera in turn is a 20-megapixel with an aperture of ƒ/2.45. It's perfectly adequate for full-on shots with friends. Colours are bright, natural enough and with a good light source you won't have any noticeable issues.

Autonomous operation

With the Xiaomi poco f3 in your pocket under moderate load, you can count on almost 11 hours of autonomous operation. The smartphone has a 4520 mAh battery. If on some days you do not actively interact with it, you may need to recharge only the next day.


Xiaomi poco f3 is the top model of Xiaomi's Pocophone sub-brand. The emphasis in the smartphone is made on performance. It is indeed excellent for the price of the model. Moreover, Xiaomi poco f3 is equipped with a quality display, speakers and super fast charging. The cameras could have given a little more to enhance the user experience. When choosing a smartphone with such gauges, you should consider well whether you will be comfortable working with it.

This Xiaomi model is definitely an interesting one. A worthy continuation of the series.
