The 48MP camera sensor takes some good quality images and for the first time, the budget smartphone is producing natural colours. Also, the 8MP selfie shooter takes some good selfies in good lighting, not the best at night.

The POCO M3 Pro 5G comes with a 6.50-inches 90Hz LCD display. Here, I feel, POCO should have gone with AMOLED even a 60Hz AMOLED display would have been a good option. What do you think?

The MediaTek Dimensity 700 Processor is built on 7NM and because of that POCO M3 Pro 5G will last longer. So if you wanted a bigger and better battery then this could be a good option as the phone 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging support.

Also, there is nothing to worry about performance, the MediaTek Dimensity 700 Processor is by far the best SoC to get at 14k price tag. You can play almost every single game which is available on the play store without any problem.

By the way, this budget smartphone and that’s the reason it’s built with a plastic body and POCO didn’t say anything about 5G bands but if anything comes up then I will update, how many 5G bands does POCO M3 Pro has.
