POCO is back with another smartphone and likewise, it’s a budget phone but it does offer something you won’t find in any other smartphone. The POCO M3 Pro 5G comes with a well-known MediaTek Dimensity 700 Processor which has support for 5G but there is no mention of, how many 5G bands does POCO M3 Pro supports.

The phone does have good specifications but is it worth the Rs 13,999 price tag, this is what we’re about to find out but before that let me tell you the India Price of the POCO M3 Pro 5G.
The POCO M3 Pro 5G is available in Poco Yellow, Power Black, Cool Blue colour options and it will go for sale on 14th June 2021 at noon via the Flipkart India website.
Is It Worth Buying POCO M3 Pro 5G?
Yes, The POCO M3 Pro 5G is worth buying because the phone has a powerful MediaTek Dimensity 700 Processor, 5G support, huge 5000 mAh battery, MIUI without ads, good camera setup, and it’s priced at Rs 13,999 which is a good price for the specification it has. In short, POCO M3 Pro 5G is worth the 14k price tag.
Talking about its cameras, the phone does have a good camera setup, I feel, the instant of 2MP depth + 2MP macro sensors, POCO could give an ultra-wide lens. Otherwise, the does have a good camera setup.
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.
