Poco M3 specifications you should know
Poco M3 is one of the best smartphones you can get under Rs 12,000 in India right now. To recall, the smartphone was first launched in the global market. When compared, the Indian model of the phone is s slightly improved version of the global model.
In terms of specifications, the Poco M3 Indian version comes packed with a 6.53-inch full-HD+ display that offers a resolution of 1,080×2,340 pixels. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor, which is pretty outdated right now, paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There an expandable microSD card support as well.
One of the key highlights of the Poco M3 is the massive 6000mAh battery. The phone comes with support for 18W fast charging. For security, the phone includes a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and Face Unlock support.
In terms of camera setup, the Poco M3 includes a triple camera rear setup including a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 2-megapixel secondary sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. For selfies, the phone features an 8-megapixel image sensor.
Should you buy the Poco M3?
There are several options available under the price tag of Rs 12,000 in India right now. In my opinion, the Poco M3 is one of the best options you can consider in this price bracket right now. It shines in most departments while there are few drawbacks as well.
The Poco M3 looks stunning and its unique design makes it stand out from the crowd. The phone is sturdy and well balanced and very easy to use with just one hand. One of the best things about the Poco M3 is that it is lightweight despite sporting a 6000mAh battery inside. The phone manages to last nearly 1.5 days on a single charge. There’s an 18W fast charging support as well, which charges the device fully in just an hour.
The two departments of the Poco M3 which I feel could have been better are: Cameras and screen. The smartphone struggles to click detailed pictures in almost all lighting conditions. However, I liked the portrait shots. Colours most of the time look washed out. Selfies also look dull most of the time. The display of the Poco phone looks extremely dull when compared to other phones at this price segment.
Overall, the Poco M3 looks like a decent option to consider at a price tag of Rs 10,999 (available at Rs 9,999 during the first sale on Flipkart.com).
