Poco M3 Pro 5G

The Poco M3 Pro 5G is currently the company’s most affordable 5G offering. The “switchblade” design, as Poco calls it, has a blacked-out portion on the upper left side of the body resembling the camera module design on Samsung’s S21 series, while the rest has a gradient finish. The 6.5-inch full-HD+ display is sharp, with good color reproduction.

The Poco M3 Pro 5G uses the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC, which is very similar to the Dimensity 800U except for its lower clocked CPU cores and a slightly slower GPU. The phone runs on MIUI 12.0.2, based on Android 11. Gaming performance was good too and heavy titles such as Call of Duty: Mobile ran well.

The Poco M3 does not have an ultra-wide camera and I was hoping to see one on the more expensive Poco M3 Pro 5G. Sadly, this isn’t the case. Overall, I think Poco could have used better sensors for this ‘Pro’ model, or at least have given buyers an ultra-wide camera to set this phone apart from its sibling.
