Xiaomi Poco M3 Mobile Phone Review

Poco are known for their flagship-killing smartphones  but they're switching gears now with the new Xiaomi Poco M3.   It's a phone with an entry-level price but it  still brings some competitive mid-range features,    like awesome battery life and stereo speakers.  Let's see what it's all about in our full review.    The Xiaomi Poco M3 is an entry-level smartphone, but you  wouldn't guess it at first glance. Sure the back is plastic,  and Poco doesn't try to hide that and manages to look unique with the glass accent and Poco logo.  Instead of pretending to be a shiny glass,  the back panel is matte    with a rough, almost leathery texture.  This adds plenty of grip. The frame is made of plastic as well,  and it's rather sharp and angular,  which adds even more grip.   The Xiaomi Poco M3 isn't light  -  almost 200 grams - partly because of its huge battery pack, but it feels great in the hand.   

Xiaomi Poco M3 Mobile Phone Display

On the front is a large 6.53-inch IPS LCD screen,  covered by Gorilla Glass 3,  with a 1080p resolution and a droplet-shaped notch  at the top for the selfie cam.    This display is pretty nice, 1080p is great  to have at this price point.   And content on the screen looks plenty sharp. Contrast is good with deep enough blacks and the brightness is decent.   We measured up to 440 nits maximum in auto mode when  in bright conditions. Colors aren't too accurate out of the box,  but we were able to achieve some great color accuracy  through the color settings. 

Xiaomi Poco M3 Mobile Phone Sound & Speaker

What surprised us about the Xiaomi Poco M3 is that  it not only has a 3.5mm jack for headphones,    but also a pair of dedicated stereo speakers -  something you usually see on premium devices.    They're mounted on the top and bottom of  the frame, and sound pretty well-balanced.    Overall their performance is some of the  best we've heard recently.    The Xiaomi Poco M3 scored a ''good'' mark in our loudness test  and you get solid bass and superb mid-tones, too. 

Xiaomi Poco M3 Mobile Phone Battrey & Charger

Another striking feature of the Xiaomi Poco M3  is the battery life, thanks to its huge 6000mAh power pack.  You'd be hard-pressed to find a phone  with better battery endurance.    The Xiaomi Poco M3 was able to score an incredible rating  of 154 hours in our battery life tests!  Charging speed, on the other hand, isn’t too impressive.  The M3 supports up to 18W charging, with its bundled adapter  we were able to charge from zero to only 25% in half an hour. A full charge would take almost 3 hours.  

Xiaomi Poco M3 Mobile Phone Unlock & Storage

Waking up and unlocking the Xiaomi Poco M3 is done with a side-mounted fingerprint reader.  It's quite responsive, though it's not as fast as some other readers we've seen lately,  perhaps due to the unlock animation.   As far as storage goes, you can opt for 64 or 128GB onboard, and this is expandable through microSD.    

Xiaomi Poco M3 Mobile PhoneSoftware & Chipset

The Xiaomi Poco M3 user interface is MIUI 12 over Android 10.  It is the same as what you'll find running on recent Xiaomi smartphones.   While many functions are provided by Google's apps,  there are some proprietary ones like the Gallery, Music, or Security apps.   In MIUI 12 you can split the notification shade into 2 panels -  the notification panel and the control panel, like what you'd see on iOS.    There is an app drawer enabled by default that stores all of your apps and organizes them into categories, if you like.   Finally, even on our unit  we saw occasional ads within certain apps    or when the virus scanner fires up after  installing something from the Play Store.    And some markets may have it even worse than that.    Under the hood of the Xiaomi Poco M3  is a Snapdragon 662 chipset, which is a recently released, but low-end silicon.    It does an okay job for this class but performance is one area  in which the budget nature of the Xiaomi Poco M3 shines through.  Though you may encounter a stutter from time to time  when swiping the home screen or switching between apps.  You might encounter some issues  when running heavier apps or games,    unless you turn down graphic settings or  even turn down the game's resolution to 720p.    Once you've done that, you might be able to make  a decent go of it.

Xiaomi Poco M3 Mobile Phone Camera Specification  

 Now, onto the Xiaomi Poco M3's cameras. There are three cameras on the back, but it's a basic setup.  There's a 48MP Quad-Bayer camera,  a 2MP macro cam, and a depth sensor.   Photos from the main camera come out at 12MP and during the day these are superb for this class.  There's more than enough detail, balanced sharpness,  good contrast, and lively colors.  Dynamic range is average and there is a bit of corner softness and visible noise,  but overall these photos are much better than we expected.   The depth sensor is here to help out in Portrait mode  and these photos come out pretty nice.    There's good detail, proficient separation,  and natural-looking defocused backgrounds.  Close-up shots taken with the macro cam are okay  if there's enough light.    You can get enough detail for 2MP and low noise,  but contrast isn't great.  The trouble is, since focus is fixed, it usually takes  multiple tries to get a macro shot to come out sharp. In low light, photos from the main camera  are mediocre in quality. 

  if you're shopping for an entry-level smartphone  or want to save some money on a mid-range smartphone,   the Xiaomi Poco M3 deserves our recommendation.
