Overview Xiaomi Poco M3
Android version and market relevance
In the short description of the new smartphone Xiaomi Poco M3 we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Xiaomi in November 2020. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Xiaomi Poco M3 works on Android 10 and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2020.
Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Xiaomi Poco M3 is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. The manufacturer could add support for fifth-generation networks to this smartphone, but did not. Perhaps not to raise the price, or for other reasons. If for you the presence of support for 5G networks in a new smartphone is very important, then we recommend that you go to this page in the catalog — all 5G smartphones on Android.
Screen, body and battery
IPS LCD edge to edge touchscreen with a diagonal 6.53″ mounted on the front panel Xiaomi Poco M3, thickness 9.6 mm.
The battery in Xiaomi Poco M3 is installed on 6 000 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is very good. Such models we refer to the segment of smartphones with powerful batteries, and we advise you to choose and buy them.
In addition to the described features of the body of this smartphone, we will add an important detail. To increase the screen area on the front panel, the producer added a drop-like notch in the screen to fit in a selfie camera and several additional sensors.
Main camera and selfie camera
The smartphone Xiaomi Poco M3 got the main camera with multiple modules (triple camera smartphones): 48 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor. And there is also a front camera that has one module: 8 MP Wide. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is super-camera, which is installed in smartphones. But the frontcamera not very good, we have in our catalog real selfie smartphones. It seems that we have already written many times that before buying you need to see a smartphone and hold it in your hands. And speaking about cameras, I would like to repeat the same idea once again — look at the reviews about this model, see examples of photos taken by this smartphone. It often happens that in search of a low price, you buy a model with a camera of tens of megapixels, but the photos and videos will not be of high quality.
Processor and Internal Memory
The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.
So, in Xiaomi Poco M3 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 662. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 4 GB.
You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 64/128 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.
Price for Xiaomi Poco M3: buy or not to buy?
The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone Xiaomi Poco M3 we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a huge screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive super quality photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is very powerful with a very capacious battery here.
Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $150 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.
If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.
