Xiaomi Poco M3 full review (Smart Phone)


Introduction

Hey what’s up guys, Will here for GSMArena. Poco are known for their flagship-killing smartphones but they're switching gears now with the new Poco M3. Let's see what it's all about in our full review. The Poco M3 is an entry-level smartphone, but you wouldn't guess it at first glance. which adds even more grip. The Poco M3 isn't light - almost 200 grams - partly because of its huge battery pack, but it feels great in the hand.And content on the screen looks plenty sharp. Contrast is good with deep enough blacks and the brightness is decent. We measured up to 440 nits maximum in auto mode when in bright conditions. Colors aren't too accurate out of the box, but we were able to achieve some great color accuracy through the color settings. What surprised us about the Poco M3 is that it not only has a 3.5mm jack for headphones, but also a pair of dedicated stereo speakers something you usually see on premium devices. They're mounted on the top and bottom of the frame, and sound pretty well-balanced. Another striking feature of the Poco M3 is the battery life, thanks to its huge 6000mAh power pack. You'd be hard-pressed to find a phone with better battery endurance. The Poco M3 was able to score an incredible rating of 154 hours in our battery life tests!he M3 supports up to 18W charging, with its bundled adapter we were able to charge from zero to only 25% in half an hour. A full charge would take almost 3 hours. Waking up and unlocking the Poco M3.is done with a side-mounted fingerprint reader. It's quite responsive, though it's not as fast as some other readers we've seen lately, perhaps due to the unlock animation. As far as storage goes, you can opt for 64 or 128GB onboard, and this is expandable through microSD. The Poco M3 user interface is MIUI 12 over Android 10. It is the same as what you'll find running on recent Xiaomi smartphones. While many functions are provided by Google's apps, there are some proprietary ones like the Gallery, Music, or Security apps.


 

Xiaomi Poco M3 full review

In MIUI 12 you can split the notification shade into 2 panels the notification panel and the control panel, like what you'd see on iOS. And some markets may have it even worse than that. Under the hood of the Poco M3 is a Snapdragon 662 chipset, which is a recently released, but low-end silicon. It does an okay job for this class but performance is one area in which the budget nature of the Poco M3 shines through.Once you've done that, you might be able to make a decent go of it. Now, onto the Poco M3's cameras. There are three cameras on the back, but it's a basic setup. There's a 48MP Quad-Bayer camera, a 2MP macro cam, and a depth sensor.is done with a side-mounted fingerprint reader.

Dynamic range is average and there is a bit of corner softness and visible noise, but overall these photos are much better than we expected.There's good detail, proficient separation, and natural-looking defocused backgrounds. Close-up shots taken with the macro cam are okay if there's enough light. You can get enough detail for 2MP and low noise, but contrast isn't great.There's enough detail but the pictures are dark and quite noisy, with washed-out colors.Though this results in a loss of fine detail. The overall result isn't bad though. For selfies, the Poco M3 has an 8MP front-facing camera.There's no support for electronic stabilization here. So, that’s the Poco M3.Of course, there are compromises to be made. It is most noticeable with the performance, which can run into hiccups here and there. Plus the camera setup isn't very versatile and both selfies and video recording are nothing to write home about. And if you're shopping for an entry-level smartphone or want to save some money on a mid-range smartphone, the Poco M3 deserves our recommendation. Thanks for watching, guys, stay safe, and I will see you on the next one. Of course, there are compromises to be made. It is most noticeable with the performance, which can run into hiccups here and there.

Xiaomi Poco M3 Camera and Processor

Plus the camera setup isn't very versatile and both selfies and video recording are nothing to write home about.so the tagline for the fresh super affordable poco m3 smartphone. ull-time handset for the last several days so here's my in-depth poco m3 review and for more on the latest greatest tech please do post subscribe and ding that notifications bell cheers now this handset certainly has a very distinctive design for better or worse no one's going to be asking what phone you're using because it's pretty obvious from the huge enormous logo imprinted on the arse it's definitely not as big as the brandon on the back end of the poco x3 but it's certainly more obvious here on the poco m3 because of the stark contrast between the black and the white. don't seem to scratch up at all after a full week of abuse still in tip top condition and the same goes for the front as well which is actually courted in gorilla glass 3. now we're still waiting for android 11 here on the m3 but you do at least get the latest miui 12 from xiaomi smashed on top with a few poko flavored tweaks as usual overall though i found that the software experience here on the poco m3 was very similar to cheapy xiaomi smartphones that i'd already viewed like the me 10t lite so you get the same great additions here like a proper gaming mode and some sneaky little tools like the video toolbox which allows you to for instance.that on youtube while you're out and about oh and one good thing about the poker compared with more xiaomi smartphones is that you get a lot less crapware stuffed on there to begin with and yeah the occasional ad still appears when you're installing an app but these are very easily ignored and skipped past no big deal at all sadly though i lite so once again for instance it was impossible to swipe away some pop-up bubbles like those google sports updates that particular example of course is not too troublesome half a terabyte for expanding the 64 or 128 gigs of storage of course some cuts do have to be made in order to achieve a budget asking price like the poco m3 so suddenly there's no nfc most motors and other rivals around this price point and also a match for the redmi 9 with its crisp fullhd plus resolution colours look natural and contrast is on point as well with very strong blacks for an ips panel overall it's impressive stuff and with only a sadly that display isn't quite perfect though for one the auto brightness absolutely sucks donkey i thought it was generally all right when using outdoors and so on but i found that in the evenings it went far too dim like i had to really squint to see what was going on eventually i would just give up and the good news is though that the adreno 610 gpu can handle gaming on titles like call of duty on high detail levels without a struggle and that's helped along by the helpful resource management tools in the game turbo menu.

Conclusion

That's with a bit of gaming plenty of movie streaming music streaming all that good stuff and when you do finally run dry the poco at least supports 18 watt charging as well so you won't have to notice that that camera could be a little bit slow at times and sometimes you'd hit the shutter button it'd be a bit of a pause of a second or  you can also expect some grin to come creeping in too and yes there is a dedicated night mode but unsurprisingly its powers are rather limited the portrait mode tends to work alright though helped along by the 2 megapixel depth sensor and there's actually no ultra wide angle lens here on the poco m3 just a 2 megapixel macro lens to round things off which frankly just no and i wouldn't depend on the video mode too heavily either this can capture basic home movies at full hd plus resolution but picture quality often falls flat while the lack of image stabilization is another sticking point flip around to the front and you've got a basic 8 megapixel selfie camera which struggles against harsh lighting and offers grainy results when you're indoors so again it's best used only for simple snaps you been using the pokemon through it'd be great to hear your own personal mini review down below as well go check out my roundups of the best budget smartphones out there um i round up with the best budget under 200 pounds smartphones should be going live imminently so to make sure you don't miss that do please post subscribe ding that notifications bell and have yourselves a fantastic rest of the week cheers everyone love you.
