POCO M3 First Impression

After a long time, POCO has launched a phone with new design, this is not a re-brand version of any Xiaomi phone which is a good thing. The POCO M3 has triple rear camera setup featuring 48MP primary sensor, 2MP depth and 2MP macro lens from which 48MP sensor will be useable, other two cameras are just here to make-up numbers.
Instant of a depth-macro sensor, POCO could have added ultra-wide lens but they felt, depth-macro sensors are more important for users. The phone also has a 5MP front camera setup which is placed on waterdrop notch. Both rear & front camera can shoot videos in [email protected], there is no option for @60fps.

POCO M3 comes with 6.53 inches FHD+ LCD Display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution and 162.3 x 77.3 x 9.6 mm screen dimensions. The phone is made out of plastic but on the front side, it has Gorilla Glass 3 and frame is made out of plastic.
This is POCO phone that’s why it’s running on MIUI 12-based on Android 10. By the way, the phone doesn’t have ads like Redmi phone or Xiaomi, it’s clean UI.
POCO M3 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 (11 nm) with Octa-core (4×2.0 GHz Kryo 260 Gold & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 260 Silver) CPU and Adreno 610 GPU. This is not gaming phone but you can play games like COD mobile at lower graphics but don’t flagship level performance as this is affordable smartphone.
This is where I feel, POCO still the show, the phone has massive 6,000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support and 18W charger is included in the box. In short, the battery will last for two days or more, in the end, it depends on daily use.
That was POCO M3, so do let me know what you think about this phone in the comment box below. I feel it’s a decent offering from Xiaomi. So if you want to buy a new phone at 10k then this would option to look at.
