Poco M3 Pro 5G vs Poco F3 GT

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.

Poco F3 GT

The Poco F3 GT is a successor to the original Poco F1 and focuses on delivering performance. The Poco F3 GT has a premium build quality, it has a metal frame and a glass back. This metal frame has “maglev” trigger buttons which can be engaged by sliders on the side.

You get a big 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It has support for HDR10+ and can reach a touch sampling rate of 480Hz while in-game turbo mode. Poco has picked the Dimensity 1200 SoC to power the F3 GT and has paired it with 6GB and 8GB of RAM. You do get 128GB and 256GB storage options with this device.
