Xiaomi Poco M3 Review

Are you looking for an affordable smartphone with modern features? Select Xiaomi Poco M3. The device was created under the wing of the former subsidiary of the Chinese company. Poco has long been defined as a sub-brand of Xiaomi, but by the end of 2020 it is now independent.

Design

Visually, the Poco M3 is an interesting model. Its back panel is made of plastic. The camera unit is conveniently positioned so that you do not accidentally touch it with your fingers. If you choose a device in black, you will definitely be impressed by its design. Xiaomi Poco M3 is also available in blue and yellow.

A nice novelty in the smartphone is the matte plastic, which looks like leather. It is not susceptible to rapid scratching, there are no fingerprints left on it. An additional advantage is that it is not slippery.

As for the dimensions, you will like the Xiaomi Poco M3. They are typical for smartphones in 2021. The phone is neither small nor too big. It weighs 200 grams and can be operated comfortably using both hands. Given the battery capacity, the case is slightly thicker.

You will find the fingerprint scanner on the right side of the device. Its location is ideal for right-handers, but left-handers may not like it. An alternative is provided - a facial recognition scanner. Both systems work satisfactorily fast.

Display

Xiaomi Poco M3 is equipped with protective glass Gorilla Glass 3, which will protect it from scratches, which are sometimes unavoidable in active use. A protective layer is placed on it at the factory, which we recommend that you do not remove at first. This way you will enjoy a perfectly strong device for a longer time.

In the display parameters you can choose between three color modes, set a dark theme or activate a reading mode.

Camera

The rear camera of the Xiaomi Poco M3 is triple. The main module is 48 MP and is combined with two auxiliary 2 MP each. One of them is responsible for measuring the depth, and the second is used for macro photography.

The main camera shoots well during the day, and you don't even have to use artificial intelligence to have beautiful shots. Focusing is fast. At night, we recommend using night mode, as it works on the principle of creating several frames, which are then combined.

Productivity

Under the beautiful body of Xiaomi Poco M3 lies Qualcomm Snapdragon 662, combined with 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal storage. If you intend to store more photos and videos on the device, you have the option of inserting a memory card.

Tests show that the Xiaomi Poco M3 does not heat up during prolonged use. The phone works with Android 10 operating system and MIUI12 interface. The company has provided an interesting set of applications that you can view with interest on the first day after purchase.

The Xiaomi Poco M3 has universal slots - you can use 2 SIM cards and a memory card at the same time. Thanks to the infrared sensor you can adjust the channels of the TV or change the blowing temperature of the air conditioner.

In terms of sound, we can say that it is loud enough for this class of smartphones. You may want more in quality. Xiaomi Poco M3 does not support NFC chip for contactless payments.

Autonomous work

If flagship manufacturers try to make their models thinner by sacrificing battery capacity, then more budget devices do not tolerate such experimental behavior. Every self-respecting brand tries to offer better autonomous work. If years ago the standard was a capacity of 4000 mAh, then the popular solution became the batteries with 5000 mAh. Xiaomi Poco M3 comes with a battery with a capacity of 6000 mAh. The promise of the manufacturer is to be able to rely on 2-3 days of work with an active screen of 7-8 hours a day. If you do not drop the smartphone all day, of course, you will need to recharge it earlier. Complete with Xiaomi Poco M3 comes a charger with 22.5 watts. It takes 2-3 hours to fully charge the battery. You have a USB Type-C port available.

Conclusion

Poco M3 is a device with a nice design that promises you decent battery life. Its nice appearance is accompanied by an excellent set of cameras, a good level of performance and an affordable price. It also offers a large enough display and an intuitive menu, which will easily adjust the settings to your liking.
