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.
The phone does have 48MP sensor but that’s it, this is what phone gonna use most of the time. That’s not the big problem as 48MP sensor takes good quality images and also, that 2MP sensors will give good images but that’s just numbers. So don’t expect much from those two sensors.
Overall, the phone has a good camera setup and I don’t think you will face any problem while taking images at night or even a day. Considering the price tag, can’t complain much here.
Display and Build Quality
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.
The good thing is, it has FHD+ display. Most of the phone at 10k comes with only HD+ display and if you get FHD+ display at 10k then that’s plus point. Also, the display is also good, so there won’t be any problem while using this phone under sunlight.
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.
Don’t think much about battery life, this is the best you got.
If your budget is Rs 10,000 then don’t look for any other smartphone, POCO M3 is the best smartphone to buy at this price tag but still, if you have any doubt then let me know in the comment box below, I would love to help you out.
