POCO m3



Design


The POCO M3 features an eye-catching design with a textured back panel and elongated camera island.

Display


The 6.5-inch FHD+ LCD display offers adequate brightness and colour levels indoors, but outdoor visibility is average. There’s Gorilla Glass 3 for protection.

Cameras


The POCO M3 features 48MP triple rear cameras and an 8MP selfie camera. The cameras take decent daylight photos but low-light imaging needs improvement.

Performance


The Snapdragon 662 SoC with 6GB RAM powers the POCO M3. The phone handles daily tasks and multitasking well, but is not the best gaming performer.

Software


The POCO M3 runs MIUI 12 based on Android 10. As is expected from a budget phone, you’ll find a fair amount of bloatware and notifications.

battery


The huge 6,000mAh battery can last nearly two days with moderate usage. Support for 18W fast charging via USB Type-C is a bonus.

Price


6GB + 64GB: Rs 10,999
6GB +128GB: Rs 11,999

Verdict


The POCO M3 is a stylish budget phone with decent performance and good battery life. The average cameras and bloatware in MIUI are its downsides.
