Forget iPhones, Galaxies, Redmis, and other such devices. Meet the season’s trendiest phone, the Poco M3. To be sure, everyone is talking about this model from the Xiaomi-backed brand, and for good reason. It has everything a bestseller needs: good looks, a beautiful screen, an excellent battery, stereo speakers, and a nice camera arrangement. And all of these delicacies are reasonably priced!
Poco is now a separate brand from Xiaomi, yet Xiaomi continues to manufacture whatever Poco designs. Even the software that Poco phones run and the chargers they use are supplied by Xiaomi, so the two companies’ independence isn’t as clear, at least for the time being.
But, Xiaomi or not, the Poco M3 has the typical bang for the buck mentality that we’ve seen in many Xiaomi and Poco phones in the past. The new M3’s unconventional styling is the first thing you’ll notice, and we enjoy the grippy leather-like plastic and distinctive details like the huge POCO-marked glass at the back.
At this pricing point, we would have expected specs to be watered down a touch, but the Poco M3 appears to check all the requirements. It offers a large 1080p screen with a small notch, a good chipset, a variety of connectivity options, dual speakers, and a large 6,000mAh battery with quick charging. Oh, and a fast charger is included in the package.
