Poco F3 review

In the course of recent years, as the Smartphone market has become more soaked, it’s not been that not unexpected a gadget goes along and blows you away with what it offers. Or possibly, one you get and figure: “I can’t accept this expenses pretty much nothing”.

One such gadget, be that as it may, is the Poco F3. In numerous ways, it’s like the Redmi Note 10 Pro – another Smartphone that dazzled us with its astounding incentive for cash – which is no genuine astonishment, as both Redmi and Poco are Xiaomi off-shoots.

Is the Poco F3 the best incentive for cash cell phones you’ll see as in 2021?

Poco F3 Design

Dimensions: 163.7 x 76.4 x 7.8mm / Weight: 196g
Glass front and back design
IP53 dust/splash resistance

Something doesn’t add up about the Poco F3 configuration that is truly engaging. Also, at first, it was somewhat difficult to get why. Seeing it, there’s nothing genuinely uncommon on initial feelings. It’s especially your standard present-day Smartphone configuration made with a plastic casing sandwiched between glass layers on the front and back.

The camera lodging is very appealing, with Poco nimbly abstaining from falling into the snare of simply slapping an exhausting square shape on the back and throwing a few cameras into it. It’s more deliberate than that, with the unobtrusive, meager ring laying out the fundamental camera.

What we observed incredible with regards to this telephone, in any case, is the shape. The mix of having that far-reaching screen on the front and the delicate bends on the back implies that with regards to imparting and answering to messages it’s really functional and agreeable to use in two hands.

The totally level screen implies a minimal shot at fizzling on the introduced console, while the gadget’s general slenderness implies you don’t feel like you’re holding a block. Also, that level screen implies there’s once in a while any occasion of coincidental contacts.

Presently, clearly, there’s no rejecting that this is a serious huge Smartphone as far as width and tallness, however, it’s under 8mm thick and that most certainly assists it with abstaining from being of gaming telephone extents. Contrasted with, say, the original OnePlus Nord, the Poco F3 feels discernibly slimmer in the hand.

That screen takes up virtually all of the space on the front, yet there’s barely sufficient room cut out as an afterthought for setting the two buttons on the right. The power button additionally includes the unique finger impression sensor, which is a button as thin as this would have appeared to be outlandish only several years prior, yet it’s shockingly functional, responding quickly and responsively.

Poco F3 Display

6.67-inch AMOLED screen, 1080 x 2400 resolution
1300 nits peak brightness, 120Hz refresh rate

You’d expect that having an actual unique mark sensor implies the gadget has an LCD show – yet it’s not. Poco F3 has put a huge 6.67-inch OLED board into this Smartphone, which is really extraordinary.

With its Full HD+ goal it doesn’t exactly arrive at that pin-sharp look of QuadHD boards, however, it has a great deal letting it all out still. It joins a great 1300 nit top splendor with 120Hz revive rate most extreme and HDR10 support for high unique reach support. What’s more, it shows.

The screen is splendid and striking, with any white components enlightening very brilliant. It’s an extraordinary board for messing around on – incompletely down to the immersion of those tones, halfway down to the perfection of liveliness.

While the default setting is actually very striking, with blue tones specifically being oversaturated, you don’t need to keep it that way. Poco’s product (it’s Xiaomi’s MIUI) permits you to adjust and modify. You can pick P3 or sRGB shading ranges, or change every one of the settings physically yourself. This way you can pick not just how much red, green and blue light to permit yet, in addition, the immersion, generally tint, in addition to differentiation and gamma settings.

Our main protest about the showcase is that it gets somewhat dim – particularly when observing some Netflix shows. The presentation’s inclination to be altogether too contrast substantial can impact things, as well, so low brilliance settings stop it from taking a gander at its best.

Performance and battery

Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 platform, 5G connectivity
6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB/256GB storage options
4520mAh battery, 33W wired charging

Execution, obviously, isn’t simply down to the ease of the 120Hz presentation. It has some genuine power inside as well. When in doubt, when you’re looking at phones in this piece of the market you’d regularly find a Snapdragon 700 or 600 series processor – nonetheless, the Poco ups the ante.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 in the Poco F3 is practically top-level execution – as old as found in the Vivo X60 Pro – and that implies everything is for all intents and purposes as quick as though you were utilizing a top-of-the-line Android telephone. Dispatching and playing top games is a breeze and the liveliness reaction from general spaces of the interface is practically quick.

Presently, obviously, if you somehow managed to do benchmarks you’d observe lower numbers in the outcomes than if you somehow happened to contrast it with a Snapdragon 888 carrying gadget. In any case, in genuine everyday use, you’d be hard-pushed to find an excessive amount of distinction between the responses and stacking times from the Poco F3 contrasted with considerably more costly opponents from any semblance of Samsung, Xiaomi, or OnePlus.

Indeed, even the F3’s battery life is up there. It’s 4520mAh, which is comparable to the ordinary limit in huge Android Smartphones, and it’ll effectively get you through an entire day without issues. We found the middle value of around a day and a half for each charge, yet that is mostly down to some forceful battery on the board inside the product.

Poco F3 Camera

Triple rear camera system:
Main (26mm): 48-megapixel, f/1.8 aperture, 0.8µm pixel size, phase-detection autofocus
Macro (50mm): 5MP, f/2.4, 1.12µm
Ultra-wide (16mm): 8MP, f/2.2
Selfie camera: 20MP, f/2.5, 0.8µm

Indeed, even the camera is good while considering the F3’s asking cost. Without a doubt, you don’t get a similar quality as you would in something like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra or Oppo Find X3 Pro, however the fundamental camera in the triple framework at the back is more than fit for taking sharp, distinctive shots.

On occasion, be that as it may – particularly when attempting close-ups – we observed it got excessively dim and contrast weighty, some of the time with excessively much immersion when the AI framework kicks in to handle what it believes are the best settings for the view.

We don’t believe it’s the most sizzling camera in its value section. At the point when we contrasted it with the camera on the OnePlus Nord CE, for instance, we observed the Poco didn’t convey as sensible a picture and did not have a little as far as the normal profundity of the field as well. All things considered, it’s not terrible by any means.

However, the super-wide that additionally includes is a flimsy spot. It changes tones contrasted with the principle sensor and shots are frequently a smidgen more hazy, logical because of the absence of adjustment. It’s not incredible at zeroing in on nearer to-camera protests either, so it’s best to save this one for when you need to take extra-wide scene photographs or comparative.


It’s uncommon to find a reasonable telephone that stands apart nowadays, however, in the always immersing mid-range market, the Poco F3 most certainly does. It’s rapid, has an extraordinary showcase, endures the entire day, and will not cost you much cash by any means. Can’t say better compared to that.
