Poco M3 Review From Bangladesh
Poco M3 packs in a Snapdragon 662 processor and gets 6GB of RAM. Which is a big step forward for the Poco brand. The build quality and design easily bests its competition, and the phone impresses overall with battery life, and general performance. The cameras could be a bit better, but that’s a problem that plagues most phones in its price range. Overall, the Poco is easily one of the best entry-level phones you can buy.
We wrote this Poco M3 review after spending a week with the phone as our primary device. Poco Bangladesh supplied the device, which was running Android 10 and MIUI 12 on board.
Poco M3 Design
The design segment is probably the most boring aspect on budget phones. But, that’s not the case with the Poco M3. It comes with a striking new design that will catch anyone’s eyes and is definitely a stand out feature among the crowd. The device is available in Cool Blue, Power Black and Poco Yellow colourways, and the Yellow variant looks most striking among the three.
To the rear, you get a unique dual-tone finish with a rectangular block that sports the triple camera module and Poco branding. This design in particular looks similar to the recently announced OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 edition. The Poco M3 back panel’s top one-third consists of a black glass visor that houses the cameras and a bold-coloured plastic back all-around with a faux leather finish – which gives premium looks and feel.
Switching to the front, things get a bit more standardized. You’ll find a 6.53-inch Full HD+ panel here with Gorilla Glass 3 for protection and a 60Hz refresh rate. This is the same LCD panel as the M2, and generally suffices for the price.
Black levels aren’t quite as good as some of the other phones in the segment, and I feel the peak brightness levels could have been pushed just a smidgen for mid-summer outdoor viewing.
However, as it stands, I didn’t really have any issues here, and watching media content is a fairly enjoyable experience.
Poco M3 Display
Poco M3 packs in a 6.53-inch Full HD+ dot drop display. It has a resolution of 2340 × 1080 pixels with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 90.34% screen-to-body ratio, 70% NTSC colour gamut. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The device comes with a noticeable amount of bezel on the sizes and even more on the chin.
Poco M3 Battery Life
If you want truly tremendous battery life, look no further than the Poco M3.
In our usage, the Poco M3 lasted over one and a half days on every charge cycle and two days a few times with light usage. The phone had at least 40% battery left after my one day of work starting from 100% at 9 AM in the morning. As for the fast charging, the 18W is not the fastest as it takes about 2 hours and 15 minutes to 2 hours and 30 minutes to charge the device completely. While the battery is remarkable and impressive, the slow charging speed might bug a few users who are on the go.
Charging, however, can be tedious. Capped at 18W, it takes close to two and a half hours to charge the phone. Including faster-charging support would’ve really helped elevate the Poco M3 as one of the best options in the entry-level segment.
Poco M3 Camera
The Poco M3 sports a triple camera setup at the back consisting of a 48-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. For selfies, it has an 8-megapixel shooter in the dewdrop notch. The camera app is simple and easy to use.
Overall, the images from the main camera can be good for use on social media platforms – if that’s what you are into.
The night shots bring more noise to the image and lack details. The dedicated Night mode in the camera app tries to overcome a few issues here with better night shots and details. The night mode images bring in more detail as well as brighter images.
The phone misses out on an ultra-wide camera and you get a 2MP depth sensor which is again average at best, with a hit or miss edge detection and low-resolution sensor. But, in daylight, the portrait shots come out really well. The macro camera is of low res and due to that, the images turn up pretty bad.
Lastly, the selfies taken from the 8MP camera are not too impressive as they are over-sharpened, and often the color tones are way off.
Poco M3 Battery
The Poco M3 ran without any complaints for the entire week I was using it. The side-mounted fingerprint scanner is convenient to reach and quick to unlock the smartphone. You do have the option to set up face recognition too, and it worked well. I could multitask between apps easily, and with 6GB of RAM, the phone could juggle between several apps before killing them in the background. The display on the Poco M3 is decent enough to be legible indoors but I found the brightness to be slightly on the lower side when outdoors. While watching videos, the stereo speakers do enhance the overall experience.
FAQs About Poco M3 Price in Bangladesh
The Poco M3 is the biggest Android phone from Poco to hit the Bangladeshi market. The company has positioned it in the BDT 17,499 price segment to compete with the likes of the Redmi Note 10 Power and the Realme 8 Pro Power.
I’m mixed on the Poco M3 cameras. The 48MP primary shooter is certainly capable of capturing some solid images with good lighting, but I found the HDR implementation to be a bit spotty. Additionally, there’s just too much grain in shadow regions, highlighting a need for some camera software optimization. Focusing too can be a bit hit or miss with more than one occasion where I was left tapping on the display trying to lock it in.
The Poco M3 doesn’t have the most powerful silicon, but day-to-day performance is perfectly adequate. Overall, the phone performs exactly as you’d expect with no real surprises. The Poco M3 presents itself as a perfectly serviceable entry-level smartphone that is good enough for day-to-day use with a spot of gaming thrown in from time to time.
It looks to us that Poco M3 Price in Bangladesh has tried to do the same with the M3, but choosing a different direction. All-in-all, there are other good phones in the market for budget audiences and the POCO M3 is right above there at the top with Vivo and Redmi.
