Xiaomi use this plan for upper mid or high range phones, but Pocophone made this possible for average smartphone. Meeting the desires of people, Poco M3 was released by the end of last year and still in-demand right now. So, let’s see what you would get with Poco M3.

Massive RAM
Long Battery Life
Excellent Sound Speakers
Cons
Old Android 10
Average Camera
Lack of NFC

Design
Poco M3 looks stunning. A bezel less display with a selfie notch is there. On the back, you would find a Triple Rear Camera setup. Fingerprint Sensor is available on the right side. USB Type C port and 3.5 mm jack got the place at bottom. Fabricated with Plastic, Poco M3 is 9.6 mm thick and measures 198 grams weight. Gorilla Glass 3 is protecting the front. Clients can choose between Cool Blue, Poco Yellow, and Power Black.
Display
The IPS LCD display of Poco M3 is 6.53-inch large. Let’s watch Full HD+ content on Netflix or YouTube. The typical brightness is 400nits. Maximum brightness makes it easier to watch and read under sunlight.
Software
MIUI 12 is the new skin of newer Android 10. The software comes pre-installed with Dark Theme, Smart Reply in all messaging apps, Enhanced location and privacy tools, incognito mode for Google Maps, Focus mode, Live Caption, New parental control, and edge-to-edge gestures.
Camera
There are three back cameras containing a 48MP primary lens. The wide f/1.8 aperture does good job. Night photography is poor, while the image quality is average at daylight cases. It is capable of Full HD video recording. The other two lenses are just to count on, 2MP macro and 2MP depth. The selfie camera is 8-megapixel that allows 1080p video calling. The selfie results are fine in broad daylight, but it turns down in low light.
Internals
Driven by Snapdragon 662 chipset, Poco M3 executes one or two applications enough fast. But multiple tasks and heavy mobile games like PUBG slows down performance. Scoring 185,082 on AnTuTu benchmark, Poco M3 runs on 11nm Octa processor. Graphics are quite good, thanks to Adreno 610 GPU. RAM and Storage variants are configured as follows 4GB/64GB, 6GB/64GB, 4GB/128GB, and 6GB/128GB. MicroSD card slot is there for memory expansion.
Fortunately, there is a massive power source – a 6000mAh battery that wakes up device up to two days on moderate use. Enjoy 46 hours of talks, 21 hours of web browsing, and 17 hours of video playback. Albeit it allows 18W Fast Charge, you have to undergo about 2 hours to recharge from 0 to 100 percent.
Verdict
Price is a reasonable factor that justifies Poco M3 and persuades consumer to make a purchase. Otherwise, there are competitive alternatives like Redmi 9 and 9 Pro.
