Poco M3 Review: The most attractive Budget phone

Poco M3 Review: Poco’s M3 is best budget phone so far. It has most of the features which seems impossible in this budget. It has large battery, a good set of speakers and a 6 GB ram too.

In weeks, the Poco M3 sold over half a million devices in India. After using it for a time, the statistic is not unexpected.

Due to its dramatic appearance, we believe the Poco M3 will outperform most sub-Rs 12,000 devices in design. The gadget looks and feels expensive for its pricing.
The Poco M3 has a rare Full HD+ display with Widevine L1 certification for watching HD video on OTT sites. The screen will meet your demands despite its low refresh rate and AMOLED display. The Snapdragon 662 has performed poorly in smartphones we’ve tested this year, and this is no exception. The gadget operates MIUI better than previous Redmi phones due to its 6GB of RAM.

Poco M3 Review: The most attractive Budget phone

Poco M3 Review: Design

Budget phones have the most uninteresting design. Unlike the Poco M3. Its eye-catching new design makes it stand out. The Poco Yellow version is the most eye-catching of the device’s three colours.

The dual-tone back has a rectangular block with the triple camera module and Poco logo. This design resembles the newly released OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 version. The Poco M3’s top third has a black glass visor that houses the cameras and a bold-colored plastic rear with a fake leather texture.
The Poco M3 has a textured, smooth back. This anti-fingerprint design improves grip. One of our favourite cheap phones, it has a great in-hand feel. The Poco M3 weighs 197 grammes and is 9.6mm thick, making it weighty and cumbersome for some.

Poco M3 Review: Performance

Recent cheap phones have suffered with performance. The Poco M3 uses a Snapdragon 662 CPU, an 11nm octa-core chipset with a third-gen AI engine and a peak clock of 2.05GHz. Phone visuals and gameplay are powered by Adreno 610 GPU.

The average performance here shows that things are still lacking. That’s true for most Snapdragon 6 series phones except the Snapdragon 678.
64GB and 128GB UFS2.1 storage options are available in India. Both have 6GB LPDDR4X RAM. You also have a 512GB microSD card slot.

Poco M3 Review: Display

6.53-inch Full HD+ dot drop display on Poco M3. 2340 × 1080 pixels, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 90.34% screen-to-body ratio, 70% NTSC colour gamut. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 shields it. The sizes and chin have a lot of bezel.

It also streams HD Netflix and Amazon Prime Video material through Widevine L1. Standard mode, reading mode 2.0, sunshine mode, and colour temperature adjustment are available. While inside, the gadget’s max brightness was 400nits, however on a sunny day, it was difficult to text or view anything on the tablet with the sun directly above us.

The Poco M3’s 1080p screen with HD video streaming capabilities, rich colours, and details makes it a fantastic affordable display.

Camera of the Poco M3

A triple camera combination with a 48MP main sensor, 1/2″ sensor size, f/1.79 aperture, autofocus, etc. A f/2.2 aperture 2MP macro lens and depth sensor follow. Low-light flashes are dual-LED. The 8MP dew-drop notch camera takes selfies.

Document, night, AI scene recognition, AI beautify, portrait, movie frame, Panorama, and Raw modes are available. Shoot Full HD and 120fps slow-mo footage.

The main camera can take detailed photos in daytime, but the result was too soft for us. Cloud pictures commonly overexpose. Edges are soft. The dynamic range is decent but lacks detail. Despite slow focusing rates, the colours are vibrant and rich.
If you like social media, primary camera photos will do your work.

Purchase it if..

  • You want a unique looking budget phone: As seen in the photos, the Poco M3 stands out. This is now the finest cheap phone around Rs 12,000.
  • You want all-day battery life: The Poco M3’s enormous 6,000mAh battery will usually last two days or more.
  • You consume a lot of content: Dual stereo speakers and a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display make watching entertainment enjoyable.

don’t purchase it If…

  • You want better camera experience: The Poco M3’s camera isn’t the finest, so we’d suggest the Redmi Note 10 if you want it only for the camera.
  • You need faster charging speeds: The 6,000mAh battery + 18W rapid charging takes almost 2 hours to completely charge. Redmi Note 10 has 33W rapid charging.
  • You want the best phone under Rs 12,000: Due to its poor performance, the Poco M3 is not our top sub-Rs 12,000 suggestion. Redmi Note 10 and Micromax In 1 with stock Android and comparable specifications may be preferable here.
